All things upside down

OK - nothing like a good vacation to rejuvenate oneself. Aha - but things don't change much in Hogtown - not over a few weeks (months, years, decades..) We should have junked the streetcars decades ago - instead we still have people trying to prove they were right for forcing us to keep them.

In the latest news, a number of panhandlers have been involved in a murder (ok al-edge-ed-ly - lol) of a visitor to our fair city. The incident was witnessed by many from a stopped Queen streetcar (no news in the streetcar being stopped). One women has been charged and a number of American panhandlers are now under investigations.

Now why would American hobo's head up to Hogtown. The simple answer is that the left-wing wing-nuts who run this city WANT them here to keep up the pressure for oodles of money to be spent on socialist housing. The hobos actually aren't in line for public housing - they are just being used for PR purposes. Now an astounding 10% of domiciles in Toronto are public housing units. However, one needs to realise that the goal of people like Paula Fletcher and David Miller is to have 100% public housing. (Top party officials would still be allowed to 'own' there own dachas. )

Given this, it's not surprising that the City does nothing about panhandlers - other that to invite more. I'm surprised they are advertising.

Of course, if you are a home or business owner in Queen W - you're out of luck. This is the city where a councilor (Adam Vaughan) has actually proposed taxing people who are lawfully lining up to get into a club or restaurant - while inviting hobos from around the world to invade the city and suck up out tax $$$.

Here is an excerpt from this page on Sean Meagher and Toronto Community Housing at and how the NDP profit off of the poor


Save Our Structures and Toronto Public Housing

Toronto Community Housing Corporation, (TCHC,) the public housing company owned by the City of Toronto, encourages tenants who are unhappy with the unlivable conditions in many of the buildings to join a group called Save Our Structures.

TCHC, the public housing landlord says joining SOS is the way to protest against them. But then TCHC is the one who funds this group that they falsely claim is a grassroots organization.

Why would the landlord encourage tenants to join a group to fight them? Of course because it is a sham they created themselves!

It was TCHC who paid local politco Sean Meagher, former longtime executive assistant to Toronto city councillor Pam McConnell to run the "tenant association".

Sean Meagher is known as a local politico who at election times tries to exercise his influence by creating political action groups like the Scarborough Civic Action Network whose email is ScarboroughCAN@publicinterest.ca.

Another groups that Meagher runs are Action for Neighbourhood Change Scarborough Village

Meagher's income comes from his for profit business named Public Interest Strategy & Communications Incorporated, publicinterest.ca, whose income comes from nonprofit groups especially the ones he helps create.

His company was paid by the City of Toronto's, Economic Development department, to write a report called, "Regent Park Employment, Skills & Economic Development Study" so you know he doesn't want to upset the city and risk not getting any more big contracts like that one...
