The TTC's advisory panel, Paula Fletcher gets mad, and the Maple Leafs pull the trigger
What’s happening on March 3, 2010.
“I excel in the art of getting things done. Communications and social media are my forte. Public transit is my ride.” That was the Tweet from Real Juice Media CEO Julie Tyios that earned her a place on the TTC’s panel of customer service advisors. Rounding out the nine-member panel: the head of Société de Transport de Montreal, Yves Devin WestJet vice-president Tyson Matheson Telus manager Sue Motahedin Spacing Magazine publisher and founder Matthew Blackett Ryerson University marketing professor Roy Morley South Asian Women’s Centre executive director Kripa Sekhar and York Federation of Students President Krisna Saravanamuttu.
Councilor Paula Fletcher kind of lost it during budgetary hearings. Watch this video.
VIA Rail’s schedule was thrown for a loop when a Montreal-Toronto CN train derailed around Cornwall. No one was injured, no hazardous waste spilled.
Speaking of, Montreal was named as one of the ten Ultimate Party Cities by the Lonely Planet. Toronto was probably 11th.
And, it’s the NHL’s trading deadline. The Leafs already pulled the trigger, trading forward Alexei Ponikarovsky to the Penguins for defenceman Martin Skoula and forward Luca Caputi.[rssbreak]
