Put Transit on Election List

Decima Research called our house this morning: a poll for the Provincial Government.

"What is the most important issue for you right now?" they asked.

"The TTC," replied my wife.

"I don't have that on my list," said Decima Research.

"Oh," said my wife.

Dear Premier McGuinty,

Please put investment in the TTC on your election list. While you're at it, put Ontario transit on there too. I hear Hamilton is looking to get LRT. They need all the help they can get.

Thanks very much for your help.

Ben: It is reported that Adam has left town, gone to France for holidays, you know all that stress and all, poor baby needs a holiday. Meanwhile so many other workers cannot get even their basic rights under employment standards enforced.

I dont know but one would think to be the head of the entity, one would actually have to have some experience in transportation or even logistics. How does someone with , it is, an archelogy degree, qualify for such a position.

Yeah 'transportation'. That's specific (more roads perhaps?)
