Politicians who cannot stop spending—an example
 By Arthur Weinreb  Monday, February 3, 2014

It is a well-known fact that many politicians, especially of the left persuasion, love to spend money as long as the bucks come from other people. The following is a perfect example of the mentality of spending money that does absolutely no good but achieves the stated objectives of making the politico feel good. And if by raising taxes to do it, making people who are less well-off struggle more, so be it.

Ice Storm Clean up Costs
 By Guest Column  Friday, January 10, 2014

Dear Editor:

I have heard a number of reports regarding the cost of the clean-up in Toronto after the ice storm, and I find it curious that the City is including the “replanting of trees” in those costs.  It may be an idea for all property owners who had trees come down on their property to do complete title searches to find out if in fact the trees that did come down, where on their property or the property of the City.

Toronto Star reporter sues Ford for defamation but what are the damages?
 By Arthur Weinreb  Monday, December 16, 2013

Last week, lawyers for Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale issued a libel notice that was served on the Toronto mayor as well as ZoomerMedia Inc. and Vision TV.

Conrad Black: The salvation of Rob Ford
National Post

The Rob Ford controversy is following a traditional pattern, but is now set to produce some surprises. It seemed to begin as the mayor’s critics, and not everyone has to like his full-figured, Archie Bunker-style, leaped with joy at suggestions that the mayor might be a crack cocaine-user (like, on an occasional basis, a very large number of other people). Then, as happens when a mob composed of the ideological left and the vast mass of those who enjoy (no matter how tawdry or parochial the details) watching the mighty fall begin to see a catastrophic career failure in progress, the frenzy took hold. Everything is then invoked as proof of ignobility, unfitness for a place of public trust, and moral turpitude.
