How do we count the ways? Spent his time in opposition talking himself blue in the face about accountability – but large gifts worth up to $10,000 to politicians are still effectively legal – and then it turns out his closest adviser was copping cash in envelopes from shady German businessmen.
Coca-Cola’s marketing arm
For trying to be too trendy for its own good.The Real Thing’s Starbucks knockoff, Far Coast, tries to ride the fair trade wave but goes stale on Yorkville snobs.
For his nuke obsessions.The family man who says kids are our future is mortgaging the future of both our children and the environment by ignoring safer and cleaner energy alternatives.
Daily Bread’s PR stunt
For leaving the public in the cold.Confused city staff removed empty fridges scattered across the city as part of Daily Bread’s fall food drive PR campaign. Unfortunately, they’re not the only ones who missed the message.
Police Chief Bill Blair
For preferring cameras over cops.Eighty murders and counting and he’s still not answering in a serious way questions about a scheduling system that fails to deploy cops where and when they’re needed most.
For self-preservation at any cost.Still sitting on his hands while the Tories ram their damaging agenda through the House – and all to delay an election to save his own skin.
For giving council wingnuts like Rob Ford and Denzil Minnan-Wong way too much space.The paper that social-minded philanthropist Joseph Atkinson built lowers the level of debate on important issues of the day in its grab for Stun readers.
For thumbing its nose at safety concerns.The same Q400 turboprops the airline uses have been sliding off runways around the world with frightening regularity because of problem landing gear – and still Porter claims there’s no need for a safety review.
For marking up their med pot by 1,500 per cent.And for quarrelling with medpot users who are forced to turn to compassion clubs because the weed the feds dispenses packs no therapeutic punch.
RCMP's badge of dishonour
For one scandal after another.A former commissioner is forced to resign for protecting underlings on the take; the Air India cover-up; the case against 18 alleged terrorism suspects coming apart at the seams. A proud tradition in tatters.
One sorry Tory.
For still not being able to put those leadership questions to rest.Months after caucus members came out publicly to express their support, the clock’s still tick, tick, ticking for weakling Tory, stuck in a yahoo party.
