B. W. Powe, Towards A Canada Of Light, p. 92
It seems to the Oracle of Ottawa, the one certain way to sign up for a 24/7 colonoscopy , is to be the newbie mayor of the largest city in Canada and then sneak out a 1000 man police force layoff notice to the press in the dog days of summer so that the Chief of Police will hear second hand on the six o'clock news! Now the Oracle of Ottawa has never had the pleasure of elected office, but if he did, this is one thing that he would certainly not risk! And by the look of the picture of the Toronto Police Chief in today's Globe and Mail the Oracle of Ottawa is more right than wrong yet again!
|"Robina" rocks the Casba...|
I am sure that the people of Toronto will be very pleased with the 2,500 new ex "mall cops" who will no doubt replace the thousand sworn members, now soon to be unemployed! Don't you wish you could see the method here? Oh! There is no method? Well...
All that is left to wonder about I guess is who is going to get the tax farm concession for the municipal property taxes? Maybe that nice Swiss accounting firm, that seems to know everything about Toronto...Maybe Rob will pay another visit to Dalton and try to get the Province of Ontario to do it for nothing? It is always worth a try, especially if a lot of the press show up and take pictures and all. One shudders in the realization that Jane Jacobs was probably right after all, and we are all doomed.
Forgive this 'umble blogger, but I just couldn't help but notice the incredible similarities of the two "actors" in Video I and Video II.
