How stupid is Olivia Chow?


The Scarborough subway, reduction of the Land Transfer Tax, privatization of garbage pickup east of Yonge Street, expansion of the Toronto Island Airport, reduction of the size of City Council and of Council expenses...

Olivia Chow may not like these Rob Ford policy proposals, but it is idiotic for her to claim, as she did, that: 
“... I’ve not yet heard anything specific coming from him in terms of specific proposal...I’d love to have actually some real policy that one could debate on...“I just hope that Mr. Ford would engage in this kind of discussion on the policy level"
It is in fact Ms Chow who has offered nothing substantive in the way of policy. Her positions are completely reactive to Ford's and her entire election policy strategy seems to be nothing more than taking the opposite position of whatever Rob Ford proposes. But in typical NDP/socialist fashion, she finds a way of making them exponentially more damaging to the city. For example, Chow wants to keep the tax increase that was supposed to support the subway expansion but without delivering the subway.

Torontonians are unlikely to see any serious policy from Olivia Chow. Because if it did, it would mean she would have to sell it. Ms Chow is infamously inarticulate, is not a deep thinker, and is incapable of standing up to tough questioning.

Ms Chow may want to try to project the spurious meme that Ford has no policy, but it is she who has no policy, other than that she thinks she'll be a better "role model" than Rob Ford, which itself is a doubtful proposition.

Her handlers and media supporters at The Toronto Star are evidently of the opinion that the sole qualification Chow needs to be elected is to be the widow of Jack Layton.

That strategy would work fine if she were running for mayor of the hyper-leftist Annex neighborhood. But to win the city, Chow will have to garner substantial numbers of votes from Scarborough, which overwhelmingly supports Ford's subway proposal, as well as the mayor's home base of Etobicoke, and from the suburban voters of North York among whom Ford performed extremely well in the 2010 election.

Unfortunately for Ms Chow, every time she opens her mouth, by introducing Torontonians to her many deficiencies, she reduces the chances of her success that much more.

The automated calls from her campaign have been coming twice a week and you know every union out there will be offering their people to work for her election campaign.

(If elected) Shes going to continue a tax cut to small business to create jobs.

The cut is $6 / year.

She is too stupid to be mayor of Toronto....No business will pay more taxes and create jobs.....She is a Union Puppet....Be honest with the taxpayers Olivia be honest...

6 bucks tax cut? This is something I as a business owner should get excited about? The woman is a lunatic and has no clue about running a business or creating jobs....Even Soknacki created his business in Markham to avoid the highest taxes in Ontario called the city of Toronto...

Everything this creature says makes me want to throw up all over myself.

All the propositions which I've heard from Olivia, would actually require a bit of extra tax from citizens. But what really makes me, upset that she wanted to reduce the reduce force of police while Toronto is becoming fuller and fuller of crime.
