Here’s some cheap advice for Sam Katz as he campaigns to keep his job as mayor:
Sam, maybe you or one of your minions should give Paul Soubry over at New Flyer Industries a dingle.
Like, before you buy a bunch of electric street cars.
Just give Soubry a call and say, "Hey, let’s do coffee," so the two of you can chat about what New Flyer is doing in Cleveland and Halifax and Ottawa with its swanky buses being built right here in River City.
And maybe, just maybe, you can do another rapid transit newser, but this time to say that you’re gonna support a local company and create jobs for local people, instead of spending millions on something we got rid of in the 1950s because they were so unreliable and so freaking cold in the winter.
Your pal, Bruce
