  1. For 40 years Canadians have seen the NHL expand into US markets where the locals have little interest in hockey. We understand that in some cases this has been a good thing for hockey, expanding interest in the sport and creating new hockey markets. We also understand that sometimes the local Canadian hockey market couldn’t afford to support the team, as was the case briefly in Winnipeg and Quebec, mainly due to the currency exchange rate. However, hockey markets like Montreal and especially Toronto are starving for additional NHL teams. Toronto could easily support an additional two teams, probably one west of the city and one to the north. NHL Commissioner Gary Betman shut down expansion into Toronto when investors wanted to move the money losing Phoenix Coyotes to Toronto. Betman would rather prop up money losing US teams than add teams in markets where people love hockey and would fill seats in arenas. Yes there are US expansion success stories, such as Nashville, but it’s ridiculous that teams like the Florida Panthers should exist while Toronto has only one NHL team. The city of Toronto is now bigger than the city of Chicago, which has two Major League Baseball teams. If Chicago can support two baseball teams, surely Toronto can support two hockey teams.
  2. The Ford government has taken over subway construction from the City of Toronto and is pumping billions into Toronto subway expansion, including adding underground stations to the Eglinton Crosstown west to Pearson Airport, extending the Yonge Line into Richmond Hill, adding three stops to the Danforth Line east to McCowan, and most importantly, doubling the length of the proposed Downtown Relief Line (DRL), which was originally to parallel the Yonge Line from Pape Station in the east to Osgoode downtown. Now the DRL will become the Ontario Line and run from the Science Centre at Eglinton to Ontario Place on Lake Ontario. What do you think of this plan? I’m all for massive subway expansion but I have questions. It’s a huge expense to extend the DRL from Queen St. to Ontario Place, which is currently a moribund site that will be rebuilt. What stations will be added west of Osgoode before the line reaches Ontario Place? We need to ensure that our subways serve communities and will have viable ridership. There will still be a Finch LRT, so at least Ford is open to different transit options. I hope that the Ontario Line at least runs as far west as Bathurst or even Trinity Bellwoods Park before heading south, as the Ontario Line would then really make some of the best areas of the city more accessible. What are your thoughts? https://www.google.ca/search?safe=strict&client=safari&channel=iphone_bm&source=hp&ei=SU2zXIiBF86D5wLilKOABw&q=ford+transit+plan&oq=Ford+tran&gs_l=mobile-gws-wiz-hp.1.3.0l3j0i131j0l4.3814.8174..11128...1.0..0.277.1135.5j3j1......0....1.......8..35i39j46i131j46.DwroFxbUk-w#
  3. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/31/toronto-star-laments-lack-of-racial-crime-data-it-helped-purge-decades-ago/ This is ironic. The same Toronto Star that seemingly played a central role in purging racial crime statistics collected by the government and prohibiting its future collection is now calling for its aggregation. Years ago, the Toronto Star seemed to champion the faux outrage over "dangerous" statistics regarding race and crime. Now, with its desire to push an agenda of racial agitation and division (drawing inspiration from its ideological allies south of the border), it now wants the very data it helped destroy. To the credit of the author of the original Toronto Star piece, she chastises her journalistic antecedents for contributing to this purge. She says that more information is always better than less, no matter how uncomfortable it may make some people feel.
  4. And it will bring crime, so the money will be spent in jails, cop salary, judge, social workers, insurance. Gambling does not create new value, it just collect money and re-dispatch value that hard working people created, and in the same time, take a large part of the wealth by the bosses of casino, and tax suckers, and some interest groups. It make tax payer suffer more. and at last, more and more people who actually create value will move away, if that becomes true, Toronto can be another Detroit.
