Karen Stintz finds a new way to bug Rob Ford: shut down a subway-focused TTC subsidiary
Now that she’s done booting the mayor’s allies off the TTC board, Karen Stintz wants to close a flailing shell corporation created to further Rob Ford’s subway scheme. Last year, Ford and Co. revived an inactive TTC subsidiary, renamed it Toronto Transit Infrastructure Ltd. and quickly burned through the $161,000 it had in the bank on legal fees, research and a salary for Ford’s Sheppard subway guru, Gordon Chong (who hasn’t been paid since July). The corporation had to beg the city to pay for a KPMG analysis it had commissioned and ask the mayor’s office to compensate Chong’s researcher—which made up a sizable chunk of Ford’s total expenses last year. At first glance, Stintz’s plan to kill the TTIL is another sign she’s through playing nice with the mayor. But isn’t she just following Ford’s playbook by thinking like a business owner and getting rid of the waste? Read the entire story [Globe and Mail] »

I just want to say that I agree with Karen Stinz and people should be thanking her for having the drive and conviction to stand up for what she believes. She is a driven intelligent woman who I admire so much. Given the rough times she has had in her personal life I would say she has accomplished so much under much less than ideal conditions. Keep up the great work Karen, not everyone is critical of you… alot of us are behind you 110%.
Think of all the people stuck in traffic because of this ill-fated and vindictive plan. Her personal ambition to destroy Toronto as Ontario’s economic engine and into a sluggish behemoth is no surprise. Sometime entitled people fail to realize the necessity for the fast and efficient flow of goods and services. After all, its where the taxes come from, Stupid. Most major international cities steer clear of these light-rail systems. As Peter Kormos said, “Real lefties want subways.” Stintz is in for a rough ride next election. Yee haw.
