Re-Elect David Miller Mayor of Toronto 
(en francais)

Short term pain for long term gain. As Bob Rae immunized Ontario from ever having to worry about another Provinical NDP government this century, Mayor Miller can accomplish the same for Toronto. (At least Rae can point to a recession as part of his woes. )

One more three year term should provide the final nail in the coffin for Mayor Miller and his socialist hordes. By that time Toronto should be hovering on the brink of bankruptcy with crushing debt, crumbling services and an irate electorate.

Only a sharp dose of reality will make the citizens of Toronto realize that platitudes and promises don't equal substance and action. Grandiose programs and slogans abound while Toronto smoulders, tinder and dry.

Ignorance may be bliss, but it is also costly and the bill is fast coming due.
Last stop for station

By SUE-ANN LEVY

I think Mayor David Miller's new "Building a Great City" website should be renamed "How to Destroy Toronto the Good in Six Easy Socialist Steps."

With the demise this week of the $150-million deal to revitalize Union Station, His Blondness has done little on the key promises he made when he came to power three years ago (to clean up the city, cut crime, renew the Waterfront, etc.)

Now he can add to his list of so-called accomplishments the scuttling of a deal that would have restored a 77-year-old transportation landmark using the kind of bold public-private partnership that is popular in many North American cities -- except socialist, union-friendly Toronto.
