Miller mystery, Jaffer laugher, and killing fast food in Tofino
What’s happening March 10, 2010:
How about this Jaffer laugher. Ex-Conservative MP Rahim Jaffer, you’ll recall, is the dude who was charged with speeding around drunk and clutching his coke. There’s a lot of rage that the guy got a free pass thanks to his Con connection, as even the judge said he could “read between the lines” (har har), and speaking to Jaffer, added, “I’m sure you can recognize a break when you see one”.
And while it’s great that he didn’t get harassed for using his drug of choice, it’s the hypocrisy that stings. If the Cons don’t mind getting high with a little help from their friends, then get by with a little help from their friends, they should really stop trying to shut down safe injection sites.
Back in Toronto, Mayor Miller is staying tight lipped about a press stating, simply, “Toronto Mayor David Miller will make an important announcement tomorrow.” The conference starts at 9:30 am this morning, so we’re not going to have to wait much longer.
Congrats to the Toronto Cyclists Union on winning the US-based 2010 Innovation of the Year Award for work on Culture Link!, a program that helps get immigrants biking.
Finally, Vancouver Island’s Tofino community is going to take on fast food. In an amazing display of bylaw use, big shots like McDonald’s, Tim Hortons and Starbucks won’t be able to open new shops if the move succeeds.[rssbreak]
