I am pretty sure they're there to keep people from parking in the field for free. Or to prevent people from driving trucks onto it and dumping all sorts of crap.

most of all, it is French for "One" (I had that U2 song in my head, as I was developing the album art. Un bâtiment moche!

It’s funny that simple explanation eluded me even though I’m bilingual.

What about 3rd pronounced with a french accent?

Ford isn't Trump at all. Even his political leanings are different from most of Trump's faces he's donned over the decades.

Trump uses people to live his royal lifestyle; 1000s and 1000s of people since he can out of his father's shadows in the late 1970s.

The fact he has Boris Johnson impersonators at his rallies wearing red Make Ontario Great Again caps should tell you otherwise. Whether his character is truly as twisted as Trump’s is irrelevant. He is using Trump style tactics and populist BS to sell voters a fake bill of goods. Also, his brother was a proto Trump. He is building his campaign off of that.

Those tactics have been used for centuries before Trump too. The sideshow has always been a big part of politics but, I still have faith it hasn't taken over reason in the voter's decision making process. Simply put. Ford isn't qualified to be Premier. Trump isn't qualified to be President. That's where the similarities in character and their actions end. I think highlighting Ford's lack of qualifications would be more impactful than making comparisons to Trump. Ford doesn't have the same royal brand affiliation as our unqualified, celebrity PM.

Two words: Rob Ford. Rob...F*$&ing...Ford.

You've got a lot more faith in the voters than I do.

If you think appeals to reason to his right/alt-right base are going to work, then I'd say you definitely have a lot more faith in the voters than I do.

I fear the pendulum swing is going to put us into some dark times, both in Ontario and federally. I hope it won't, that we can escape the insanity that has taken over the country to the south of us, but I don't feel very optimistic.

at "Dog Fart". I'll have to borrow that one. Fart, if he is elected (perish the thought), will not be as insane, stupid, and downright awful as Strumpf, but that's only because a leader cannot conceivably be worse than the all-time nadir of democratically-elected leaders that is Trump. I'm sure I'm omitting a few execrable people (e.g. Hitler), but we shan't quibble, shall we? OK, Hitler was worse.

That's quite a logo...



Radioactive pitcher plant, I guess, is the theme?

Either that or a coven of Ornacias...

"Dark times"? What could be darker than PM Dressup? Populism means doing what is popular, ie. what the people want...

No wonder Canada is such a mess. The cognitive dissonance of this type of "opinion" is frightening.

Wow, speaking of cognitive dissonance....

Ontario is doing fine, but I'm guessing you've never bothered to read the budget tables or really anything beyond the lede in inflammatory articles. Similarly, highly doubt you've ever read Marx because the reflexive call of MARXISM by online chuds towards people espousing (if anything) vaguely neoliberal opinions is extremely hilarious.
