EDITORIAL (MAY 2017): Revoke U of T’s unchecked “licence to build”

May 26th, 2017 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL (MAY 2017): Revoke U of T’s unchecked “licence to build”

The University of Toronto is seeking broader powers to do as it pleases with respect to developing new buildings in certain designated large swaths of its campus. In effect, it wants to be an off-leash development dog, a request that has the community wary. The City of Toronto should be too.

EDITORIAL (MARCH 2017): Foreign buyers tax a necessary cliff jump

March 22nd, 2017 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL (MARCH 2017): Foreign buyers tax a necessary cliff jump

Pursued to the edge of a cliff by relentless law enforcement, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were faced with an unenviable choice: jump, be captured, or — the most likely alternative — be killed while being captured. As they contemplate their fate, Butch and Sundance begin to argue over who should jump first, with Sundance finally admitting that he can’t swim.

EDITORIAL (FEBRUARY 2017): Clement’s petulance diminishes parliament

March 5th, 2017 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL (FEBRUARY 2017): Clement’s petulance diminishes parliament

Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition is contributing little of use to the debate over how best to deal with the hundreds of refugees walking across the Canada-US border through fields and forests. Thanks to Donald Trump’s barrage of rashly conceived executive orders, immigrants to the United States seeking to stay there have become increasingly nervous that they will be deported without due process and are understandably seeking sanctuary in Canada. In Quebec alone, there was a 250 per cent increase in illegal crossings in January.

EDITORIAL (JANUARY 2017): Pot a remedy in opioid crises

January 23rd, 2017 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL (JANUARY 2017): Pot a remedy in opioid crises

In December, after just three weeks in business, the Pacifico Life marijuana dispensary at 444 Bloor St. W. was shut down by the building’s landlord. It paid the price for operating outside the current federal law governing the sale of that drug. The government has promised changes to the law including decriminalization, regulation, and retail level access. Meanwhile, not too far away at Bathurst and Queen streets, the City of Toronto awaits federal approval to open a supervised injection drug site, where users like heroin addicts can get help if things go awry with their injection (such as an overdose) and get counselling and treatment. In both cases, it’s a waiting game for the federal government to act.
