Case Ootes to feed and shelter the homeless

Toronto City Councillor Case Ootes is giving up helping cyclists and turning his attention to the homeless. He has a brilliant plan to feed and shelter the homeless. Ootes is calling for a by-law that would fine the homeless for panhandling. The vast majority of homeless are penniless. So this will result, when they cannot pay their fines, in the homeless being put in jail where they will be sheltered and given 3 meals a day.

If it wasn't for the NDP's perverse support for the Front St. Extension as seen in the Feb. 21/05 council vote, I wouldn't have run in ward 29, and Ms Alexopoulos wouldn't have lost by 20 votes. So: Let's really blame Joe and David for this perversity.

Politicians of all stripes get a big "F" from me. Failing, failures, failed.

Hey Hamish, maybe you could remind me again sometime why they support the FSE. That never made any sense to me.

FSE = more cars = more jobs for unionized auto workers = more NDP votes.

Hooray for the NDP and their love of automobiles.
