Getting reimbursed for donations is how democracy works. Ordinary citizens who don't have big bank rolls, can participate. Otherwise, the candidate with the most money wins. And we know who has the most money here. So shell out for the candidates of your choice already!

Well, no, having a government pay back contributors out of tax money is not "how democracy works." If you think that, I suppose you don't mind that your tax dollars are right now being paid out to contributors to Rob Ford's campaign when they get their "rebate"? Of course you do. Now this may be the bizarro way Toronto politics works, but we don't have the monopoly on democracy.

In any case, it's what we're stuck with for now. In brighter news, that Ford salsa dancing video was hilarious.

Peepers had over 2000 posts when he got banned. Obviously not a troll?




And the other half is casita posting something every minute.

Khristopher is wrong, one can be or act like a troll at anytime, and with any amount of posts.


Enough of this, please! Off-topic for starters.

BTW: You should now be able to use the ignore function if you wish.

Yep, and those rebates are mostly going to 905 sources.

looks like former Ford staffer has some weird definition of racism (re Mikey Ford running for council):

Tom Beyer ‏@TomBeyer7 5h
@bconnolly00 @CHFIErin Poor Michael witnessed the sordid murder as a child. He has been through a lot. A strong, serious young man.#topoli

Tom Beyer ‏@TomBeyer7 4h
@bconnolly00 @CHFIErin Judge Michael on his own merits. You cannot judge a son by the misdeeds of his father. Give him a chance #topoli

Tom Beyer ‏@TomBeyer7 4h
@bconnolly00 @CHFIErin no person can choose who his family is. What you're saying is racist. Every man has the right to his own destiny

then he tweeted this link to support his use of the word. Are the Fords a separate race now? Geez... :rolleyes:

Guys. What does this mean.

"Charges dropped against four arrested in Project Traveller probe"

"Criminal charges have been dropped against four people arrested in the sweeping Project Traveller investigation, including those laid against a man who tried to broker the sale of the first Rob Ford crack video."

http://www.theglobeandmail.com//new...be/article19687560/?cmpid=rss1&click=sf_globe


oh dear.

on the plus, it could suggest a handful of guys copped pleas and agreed to testify.

on the minus, it looks like more evidence of horribly hamfisted work by TPS on this file: four people arrested, held for a year, and then released with no charges?

really, really hope we get some answers on this. the project traveler side of things has been incredibly opaque from day one.

This from a guy who, if he truly cared about injustice, and understood that he was being paid by the citizens (and accountable to them) of Toronto, would have gone to City Hall's HR department and spilled his guts about the drug taking, driving while drunk and the rest of the disgraceful, criminal behaviour of Rob Ford. Tom Beyer and anyone else on Ford's staff at that time (Towhey are you listening?) behaved like spineless cowards/ enablers and should feel profoundly ashamed.

my money is on ".... or if it is not in the public interest to proceed,” as the reason - they'll all testify
