THE BIGGEST APRIL FOOLS JOKE TORONTO WILL EVER SEE.

image

Tomorrow Toronto City Council votes on whether to allow our Island Airport to expand dramatically and allow Jets to take off and land. It will be a travesty if it is allowed to happen. The even bigger travesty will be that many intelligent Torontonians will wring their hands and shake their heads and say “how did this happen?” Same way Ford happened! Same way this got this far.Same way Subway wasn’t plannned and built decades ago.

Hasn’t helped mind you that Porter and The Port Authority have spent nearly $10 million schmoozing people into thinking it’s a great idea. And in the process bought zipped lips of 90% of the press on this important issue. 

But lucky Porter. Because People don’t care. They care to live here, but not to invest here. You have to invest in this City, this Country, this World if you really want to “live” here. Shame on you if you don’t. And just giving your $ to some charity doesn’t cut it either.

You need to step up and get involved and call your Councillor and skip the nail salon or the gym or the text or the yoga or whatever you think is more important in the next 5 minutes and get involved. Cause this will affect you for the next 50 years. And 50 years after that. 

The apathy this entire Generation exhibits is truly astonishing. A Generation from 20 somethings to 60 somethings. No war to have fought, no Depression to slog through, no Terrorist Attack (yet) to react to.Just “what am I going to do about dinner tonight?”

Help yourself. Help your World. Help your Country. Help your City. Help your Children and their Children. Just help. If not on this than on something. Good for you if you do. I pity you as a Citizen of the World if you don’t. Because the joke will be on all of us.

The Studio Building in Rosedale Valley that was home to The Group of Seven and the likes of Harold Town. His large paintings used to leave marks on the hall ceilings after they were done and taken out but were exactly to size!! @fiftythree

So here’s my latest using madewithpaper for the drawing in the background and madewithstudio app for iPhone but in this case I used it on my iPad which was even cooler to do. Both great apps you have to have if you’re even faintly creative.
