  1. Last night the Raptors beat a team in a Best of Seven series without needing all seven games, for the first time in their history. Tried their best not to win last night by blowing a 25 point lead and actually having to come back to beat the upstart Bucs. Cavs are next.
  2. This party is the worst.
  3. I wonder if a certain American poster would have stinging commentary had TSN or Sportsnet laid off 100+ people, similar to how ESPN just did because the media landscapes are ultimately similar regardless of scale.

      Is somebody begging for my American attention ?

      Fairly quiet lately. Must be difficult being a Trump supporter these days.

  4. And 30 years in prison won't do anything either. He doesn't pose any threat to the public, he's not a violent offender.
  5. Thread Drift but Muzzo pleaded guilty and was remorseful. Not sure what putting him in jail for 20 years accomplishes. As for the drugs. Lethal Injection is probably the last method I'd choose. Firing Squad would probably be best. I actually wouldn't like a Guillitine. Who really wants to know if you actually see anything for a period of time after your head is removed from your body.
  6. Sounds like an excellent example of "What's Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander".
  7. God these people suck http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/lcbo-workers-vote-overwhelmingly-in-favour-of-a-strike-1.4085840 There should be more privatization. I actually hope they do strike and the province expands privatization.
  8. And under the legalized model, you stand to get more time in jail if you give your kid brother a joint than if you actually sexually assaulted him.
  9. The US is whining about Softwood Lumber again?

      Now we know how Trump is going to pay for his wall.

      If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try, try, try again.

  10. The money is supposed to come from streamlining current benefit programs.
  11. I remember a Toronto Sun headline from years back saying that the City of Toronto could give every homeless person about $30,000 in cash for the amount of money they spend on poverty. If a minimum salary actually meant that people couldn't make a living "helping" the poor off tax money, then it would save money.
  12. This will only work if the government dismantles the poverty industry, which it probably won't do because that means less civil servants. If someone blows through this $17,000 and are still destitute and addicted to drugs, it it moral to let them live on the street with no further assistance now.
  13. Isn't this Foreign Buyer Tax an attempt to keep people from buying units just to keep them empty. This seems like a damned if you do, damned if you don't scenario.
  14. The Toronto Maple Leafs have more playoff wins this week than the Thrasher/Jets organization has in its history. 

  15. The first layer of explosives they installed a week before without anyone noticing. Duh!
