“It just amazes me that people get bogged down on these little insignificant incidents rather than focusing on what’s really happening in this continuing deterioration of our system.”

–ATU Local 113 president Bob Kinnear, talking to the National Post about the latest in a never-ending series of news stories about TTC staff slacking off on the job. (This time, some passengers were left alone on a bus for about 30 minutes, apparently because their driver finished his shift before his replacement was ready to take over.) Not everyone will appreciate Kinnear’s attitude, but, for what it’s worth, even upper management agrees that the TTC has much bigger problems than the occasional (or, not-so-occasional) service interruption.
