Sorry, Rocco

You know I love you, man... but you lost me at "fire sale":

The latest contender for Toronto's mayoralty said he would whip the city's finances into shape by selling Toronto Hydro and other city assets if elected.

"I'm big, I'm bald and I've got bold ideas for this city," said Rocco Rossi, who until last week was the Liberal party's national director in Ottawa.

..."We're going to sell assets," Rossi told reporters. "We're going to start with Toronto Hydro."

Nope. Sorry. Been there, done that, didn't like it.

Happily, I don't live in Toronto.


  1. Rocco's job is to be a spoiler candidate.  I think he knows that he will not will.  His job is to make one of the other candidates lose by siphoning off some votes--even two percent.

  2. We've seen the stupidity of selling off these kind of assets - in the end the public pays more and the only people who profit are already rich...

  3. Amen to that. Political and fiscal suicide, he's pushing for here.
