Rob Ford's Political Garbage Bin by KeswickPinhead Rob Ford's Political Garbage Bin by KeswickPinhead
Part of Toronto now has garbage pick-up from a private firm, as opposed to government workers.
The voters of Toronto CHOSE Rob Ford, primarily BECAUSE of the vile Garbage Strikes that they've had to endure, in my opinion.
I am NOT anti-union...but actions do have consequences.
I just saw the headlines and knew I had to use them.

I should point out, to be completely transparent here, that I live in an area with garbage-removal provided by a private company, and I haven't noticed any difference in the job that's done...by which I mean, there is still a lot of room for improvement.
I should also point out that I lived in Toronto during the first of the two garbage strikes in recent memory, and, shortly after, moved to Keswick, where, I am happy to say, we had full service while Toronto was being buried in trash and providing a breeding-feeding ground for rats etc...
Not happy that T.O. had to endure that mess, happy that I didn't have to live through it...again.


'Talking Trash' headline originally read 'Trash Talking', it was from Toronto Sun columnist Sue-Ann Levy (not the first time I've enjoyed then used one of her headlines, see thumbnails below)
The second one, also from the Sun, has an arrow that I cut from a 'BINGO' Lottery ticket.
It originally read:
'Ford's political future could hinge on the lid of a garbage bin if private trash service picks up'.

All the snippets of newspaper are sitting on a painting I'm working on.

Thanks. The mayor of Toronto is an embarrassment to most Torontonians at this point.
The last mayor wasn't liked, but few called him an idiot. Rob Ford and his brother are both big buffoons. I hope he doesn't get re-elected, even if this is a solution to this garbage issue.
The old saying rings true, 'even a broken clock is right once in a while'.
