What does Brad Duguid have to say about this development? Oh, that's right: "We respect the will of city council." And when this mess starts to get built, who's going to get the blame? City council, of course!
Speaking of this mess getting built: Has anyone checked on the status of that power plant out in Mississauga, the 407 extension, those not-exactly-closed coal plants, those quarries up north, that hospital out in Peel, and all the other stuff Dalton was supposed to build or stop building?
I wonder if anyone will remember this little episode when, in a little while, the Liberals try to build a casino and have to go through the messy process of a referendum. With subways, it'll be "Dalton listens to council and not the people," and with the casino (which likely won't pass a referendum), it'll be "Dalton listens to the people and not council!" And in both cases Ford will end up looking offside. Huzzah!
