    Rishi Sunak's United Kingdom

    I don't think this should surprise anyone. Money talks. It shouldn't, but it does,and always has...... Among Hitler's largest financiers for rearmament were American banks, it actually took an Act of Congress to put that to an end. This is all public and verified, btw. In the Brit...

    2023 Toronto Mayoral by-election

    Disregard one of the many points you have that are either provably wrong, or entirely without any foundation or evidence, so as to imply you had some type of legitimate point somewhere along the way? Pass. Your assertions are comically absurd. That said from someone not particularly likely...

    I would never suggest that Quito has his thumb on the scale; but that others may draw that conclusion, would not surprise me.

    VIA Rail

    Presumably, because it would enhance their ROI? (Return on Investment) I'm not clear on what the potential ROI is here, but to the extent that there is any private bidder, clearly they would believe there is profit to be made. The potential profit for a freight operator that can control...

    Details from the above: * Town of Ajax planning staff really don't like this..........and I completely understand, its garbage. We have these quotes because the 'planners' working for the proponent are engaging in an open back and forth w/staff in their addendum. Note to would be...

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    I genuinely don't know the answer. But its not a bad question. Perhaps you might ask Mx.

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    I tend to drop minimum wage comparisons in this thread from time to time, to beat my drum on the subject of what I consider an unreasonably low minimum wage here in Ontario. I try not to do this unendingly, but when there is actual news from another jurisdiction. A country to which Canada...

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    I don't see it on the I/O page. Not sure where future elements of it are being tracked. I'm fairly sure tenders have already been awarded for some of the imminent works and so they wouldn't be in a section for upcoming works.

    2023 Toronto Mayoral by-election

    t I concur.......with one added statement though; I think its important to remain open to the idea that any candidate can be constructively criticized, and the fact they may have faced such attacks does not mean that all critiques should be so labelled. I am not suggesting you implied that...
