The things I’ll miss while on vacation
I’m off on vacation, so this blog will go dormant until after Labour Day, at which time I’ll be sinking my teeth into the provincial election campaign. Two things before I go. One: if the heat gets so bad that the province is forced to implement rolling blackouts, then John Tory will be Premier on October 11. Two: I’m glad I will miss out on City Manager Shirley Hoy’s much-anticipated press conference today, in which she will explain how she will cut $100 million from the city’s budget. The budget shortfall is so big that it has become a political issue, not an administrative one. The sooner she gets out of the way and lets the slings and arrows fly between the rival factions at city hall, the better.
