  1. Glad I take the bus. I thought Ottawa was bad. Calgary looks insane.

  2. The more the better, get people out of the automobile.Jack them up higher, it would solve some of the traffic congestion problems

  3. NO! The teaching unions ensure
    that workers are represented in a greedy capitalist society. If it
    weren’t for unions, we teachers would be working for less than $2 a day.

    For anyone reading these posts which are slandering Martingrove
    Collegiate Vice Principal V ivian M avrou I hope that you
    realize these statements are not true and are posted by individuals for a
    reason unknown. I have worked with V ivian for a number of years and
    find her to be a great administrator. Now think, if any of these
    statements about her doing oral sex on a student in her car were true could TDSB really hide this from teachers, parents,
    students, the media or the police – absolutely not. I shudder to think
    what the purpose of these constant posts are. The posters sound mentally
    disturbed and I am afraid that they would not get psychiatric help for
    their mental retardation. Names of students have been posted – you as
    teachers must agree that this is horrible – imagine when these students
    and families Google their names and see that they have been pulled into a
    slanderous campaign, very sad for the students and those employees of
    TDSB that would stoop so low for their own advancement !
