    Could this be John Manconi’s way of increasing ridership?

    Kosmos:

    Good one.

    Now city hall will have to strike a committee to decide what is a small pet.

    Skunk? Porcupine? Raccoon? Hedge hog? Georges Bedard?

    cheers

    Kosmos. Perhaps someone at city hall read my comments re: Pebbles and decided that a re-vitalization of empathy in this city would be a good idea, or maybe Watson is somehow trying to work this together with his $1-million plan “gift” to re-vitalize his chance of winning the mayoralty race again in 2018.

    This was news to the two people in our house who take OC Transpo regularly, as both said that people on the bus with small dogs in purses are a regular sight.

    So now they are going to allow small pets: cats, dogs, snakes and turtles etc. as long as they’re in carrying cases and don’t forget the bicycles. Will their be any room for people?

    Is Manconi proposing charging a fare for those animals? That way the woman with the rat in a cage on the bus last week would have paid for the seat it was occupying while fare-paying human passengers were standing. People with animals are now taking up two seats when they aren’t permitted – what will happen when they get the open door?

    I’m sorry Voter but you must define your conception of a rat.

    Are we talking a rat rat or a human rat.

    Rat rats do not require a fare. Human rats do.

    However if a rat rat infests the bus, it gets a lifetime free pass.

    I’m here to help. k

    It was a rat rat in a red plastic cage. Although I’ve seen human rats on the bus often enough.

    Are you sure about the human rats? I thought they drove their own vehicles to Lansdowne.

    Sorry Kosmo, but there isn’t enough parking at Lansdowne.

    Ron Benn, they also received parking passes for the underground … think back … RedBlacks.

    Kosmo, my apologies for being a little slow on the uptake. The rats you are referring to are the ones that report to work at das Rathaus (the German term for city hall).

    No apology required, Mr. Benn. I learn so much from you and now you’re are teaching me my third language.

    Ron, you don’t think it’s a bit of a stretch to describe their activity as ‘reporting to work’? Although I suppose you can report to work and do nothing or busy work when you get there.
    The Rathaus occupants are right to be concerned. It’s a known fact that Bulldogs worry rats – there is more than one definition of ‘worry’, one of which applies to canines and the other of which is more general. Both apply.
