Gridlock is affecting us all Toronto

If you cannot get to the city to work, you are rushed, you are pushed, You are provoked to aggression, you are angered; You will not have a good day. If you need to fight to park, to go shopping, to be pushed and elbowed in the shopping mall will you return? If you KNOW, You KNOW that you face this every day... Why are not screaming for change?

If you had a choice of working in the city or tele-working, flex hours, Computer access from home and /or commuting? How would your life change?

This year, in 2010, we have an opportunity to vote and get involved with some creative strategic thinkers about the future planning of Toronto. If we vote No new taxes, No tax increases, we are merely lying to ourselves that subways and roads will be built, infrastructure will improve and hospitals will reduce waiting times. How long shall we put these things off?

Have a look at the position papers. Read the back ground material. Get involved with a candidate that has some long term vision besides a single issue slogan without any details. Attend a debate and see for yourself.
