EDITORIAL: Taking control of the narrative (Sept. 2022)

September 27th, 2022 · No Comments

The province is dissolving Ontario’s independent COVID-19 Science Advisory Table and replacing it  with, what one member described, as its exact antithesis. The science table didn’t hesitate to bring attention to facts the government didn’t want to hear, but which the public needed to know.

After 12 years on city council, Mike Layton, representative for University-Rosedale’s Ward 11 will not seek another term. Given the systemic changes made to the city’s governance in recent years, it’s no surprise Layton’s made this call—but it’s a shame and a real loss to this community.

EDITORIAL: Highway’s environmental impact worsens with every report (July 2022)

July 18th, 2022 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: Highway’s environmental impact worsens with every report (July 2022)

The provincial PCs handily won another majority at Queen’s Park. The progressive parties split the vote and Doug Ford walked up the middle with his “get it done” message. It’s a simple and catchy phrase that Ford could utter authentically. A key plank in their plan is building Highway 413, but it appears that getting it done might not be so simple.

EDITORIAL: Buck-a-fare just another sound bite (Provincial Election 2022)

May 24th, 2022 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: Buck-a-fare just another sound bite (Provincial Election 2022)

EDITORIAL: Ford’s climate fiction (May 2022)

May 17th, 2022 · Comments Off on EDITORIAL: Ford’s climate fiction (May 2022)

We are just weeks away from the provincial election and voters are being besieged with election advertising.

Inflation, housing and a green transition are all key elements

By Chrystia Freeland

On that Thursday in March, just over two years ago—when our travel plans were hastily cancelled, when our children came home from school, and when we rushed to the grocery store to buy toilet paper and hand sanitizer—we knew then that this virus would disrupt our lives.
