Steve Munro’s Web Site � The Mythology of “Poor Performing Routes”

Steve Munro’s Web Site � The Mythology of “Poor Performing Routes”: "Whenever there is a budget crisis, the TTC trots out its annual report in which they claim to show the costs and revenues associated with each route in the system. By implication, the routes at the bottom of the barrel are “poor performers” and candidates for service cuts if not outright extinction. The calculations in this table can be charitably described as creative writing."

Steve Munro’s Web Site � Details of the TTC Proposals

Steve Munro’s Web Site � Details of the TTC Proposals: "The July 2007 report and the introduction to the March 2007 proposals make interesting reading as a pair. Although the “crisis” came to light only this week with proposals such as closing the Sheppard Subway, the TTC has been thinking about this for a while. Indeed, in March, they had a $100-million list of cuts ready to go if the City felt particularly stingy about its annual subsidy"

O Canada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

O Canada - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land
Glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee;
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
"Weir's lyrics have three additional verses, but these are rarely sung.

O Canada! Where pines and maples grow,
Great prairies spread and Lordly rivers flow!
How dear to us thy broad domain,
From East to Western sea!
The land of hope for all who toil,
The true North strong and free!
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

O Canada! Beneath thy shining skies,
May Stalwart sons, and gentle maidens rise.
To keep thee steadfast thro' the years,
From East to Western sea.
Our own beloved native land,
Our true North strong and free!
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

Ruler supreme, who hearest humble prayer,
Hold our Dominion, in thy loving care.
Help us to find, O God, in thee,
A lasting rich reward.
As waiting for the better day,
We ever stand on guard.
God keep our land, glorious and free.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!"
