Sarah Thomson enters the mayoral race with a poem

Posted by Derek Flack / March 20, 2014

Sarah Thomson mayoral race torontoSarah Thomson is once again running for Toronto mayor. I'm quite sure this isn't news for those of us not intimately tied to the local political scene. At the end of the day, the publisher of the Women's Post is unlikely to figure as anything more than a fringe candidate. And yet there's something about Thomson's platform that's already too entertaining to pass up. Aside from the press release announcing her candidacy, her first bit of campaigning comes in the form of a poem. Yes, a poem with an AABB rhyme scheme, which with the wit of Pope and the gravity of Milton takes on the issue of subway infrastructure in Toronto.

"Stop and go. Stop and go
I want a city with transit below
I want a city with underground trains,
Light rail or subway, they're almost the same.
I want a city that is filled with a passion
to dream of a future not cramped by inaction."

This thing reads like white rap on the sitcoms of the 1990s. I want so desperately to make fun of the entire thing, but there's really no need. As is the case with Rob Ford segments on the late night talk shows, the less one gets in the way, the funnier it is.

"It's hitting all cities from Dallas to Kent
the rich who come in are increasing the rent
It's time to say yes to those who suggest
Toronto is better, when we all just invest.
It's hard to predict the needs that arise
it's hard to have vision and keep the same stride."

Kent? I know you want "rent" in there, but Kent? Ok, shhhh.

"It's hard to determine the truth from the lie
And easy to blame it all on "that guy"
We must come together, unite in one stand
To build underground transit for each woman and man
The cost is gigantic, but the payoff is double
And the jobs it will bring are more than a bubble."

Read the whole thing here.

And, remember, "it's time to ignore the ones who provide / a short-term perspective on how we must ride," lest we abandon our children to hell (that's swell).

More poems, please.

Update: (1:00am)

In her official campaign launch video, Thomson points out that "if a cat were big enough, it would eat you."

This is a joke right? I mean it's one thing for the OCAD student from Bracebridge to do dreads (still terrible, but somewhat understandable), but a middle-aged woman?

She hasn't registered.

Doesn't she have to register first? She can't even incur campaign expenses until she registers.

Who is paying for her campaign website?

Sarah Thomson makes Rob Ford look credible. She is going to split the stoner vote...crackers to Ford, Rastas to Thomson.
And then there is Olivia Chow and John Tory.

Oh lord, please help this town.

Sarah Thomson has spent the last four years doing three things: Coming up with good ideas for transit supporting things like “The Big Move,” dissing Rob Ford every chance she gets, and urging John Tory to run for Mayor. So John Tory has run for Mayor, and Sarah still throws her hat into the ring. This gal is indeed a few French fries short of a happy meal, but there is a method to her madness. She is going to stay in the race for as long as she can to raise her profile, and then drop out to try and get Karen Stintz’s empty ward 16 seat Opportunism at it’s finest. She won’t have my vote for either based on the wretched poem she wrote.

AV - I'm signing her praises, or singing her praises? If you read all of my post, it's hardly praise. I went to one symposium of hers about The Big Move, where I thought granted she had some good ideas, but ultimately, I am not on her "team," I'm on no ones team, and I don't feel she would be a good candidate for Mayor.

I wonder if her "plan" to toll "non-residents" on the DVP would be extended to other highways. What about all the "non-residents" who come to this city from all around the world to do business? Is she going to force them to pay a toll too? Is it going to get to the point that there is going to be a toll booth or electronic toll collection at every road entering Toronto proper?

This woman is out to lunch...
Go ahead, if you want to shy people away from doing business in this city, go right ahead with your half-baked plan. Not that anyone with half a brain is going to vote for you anyway...

Too funny. She just helped Ford get re-elected. What a space cadet.

Whoever wrote Chows speech from the other day, did an amazing job. She's still not going to win. There's (so far), a six way split for left votes.

Someone who deserves a mention is 18-year-old Morgan Baskin (she's the sixth, and I feel is a contender). She's upcoming, so you'll want to keep an eye out for her. Would love to see her participate in the debates (it would be a good experience for her). Politicians are always saying the youth are our future, time for them to put up or shut up. Let the girl participate in debates.

How does she think she can manage the city budget when last time she ran for mayor she had to drop out of the election because her campaign funds ran out?

"Never say never but it is all about the funding," Thomson said. "I've got a lot of support now and I'm hoping that support will carry me through."

She is a fringe candidate even though she's fighting not to be one so she can be part of the debates. I do not need to see her at any of the debates, your a fringe candidate.

I have to agree in the sense that it's just not a new Mayor that Toronto needs but city council needs to be overhauled as well. When a dysfunctional city council us being lead by a buffoon dimwit Mayor and his knuckle head brother that's a surefire recipe for disaster. That being said, Toronto as a city is awesome. There is always something to do, there is plenty of art, and culture, and I know people grew up in different environments, but I absolutely love the buzz of the city. I'd rather be here in Toronto where it allows me to be spontaneous, and do any number of things rather than be in a suburb where you either stay home, or the most exciting thing to do is go to CostCo on a Saturday and fence with other shoppers...blech!

It's not the amount of crime that matters; having a top notch police force to deal with it does. Both Toronto Police and Durham have crappy police forces. When you look at TPS stats, it is a fraction of the crime that occurs here. Not all crimes are investigated for various reasons, but the main one is a lack of enthusiasm on the part of police officers who are either ignorant, prejudice, or lazy. The less crime they investigate, the more money for raises come budget time. The province is to blame too. They're the ones who are supposed to dish out the funds for larger investigations like Brazen. How long was that gang in business? Fifteen, twenty years?? The TPS motto is, "If you don't see it, it isn't there".

Do you remember a man who was last seen in a Durham bar, and his body was found in a US garbage dump? Durham cops released a statement it was death by misadventure (Ontario seems to have an epidemic of bodies in dumpsters which get written off the books as death by misadventure). Thank God for the cops in the US, who knew different. There's a lot people don't know about investigations. The Centre For Forensic Science does not test hair for the newer drugs that don't show up in the bloodstream. Police officers in the sex crime unit, and the sex assault clinics (at hospitals) don't order the tests citing they don't have the expertise, or the funds. Criminals and wayward cops (mainly rapists), know this, and people are getting away with murder because of it.

Heads up to Hamilton Police. The reason you're seeing a spike in crime, is Toronto criminals are being transferred to your area (instead of going to jail). You have the Liberal government to thank for that.

If you don't have a good police force, criminals will gravitate to your city. Ontario is crap when it comes to dealing with crime, period.

"I used to be complacent just working at my Dads decal shop, but ThatsShwettyBalls lit an uncontrollable fire under me that I'm now running a major north American city with the help of my brother Doug" - Rob

"I was so self absorbed raising my family and making sure they had a good quality of life but ThatsShwettyBalls showed me more, I am no longer satisfied with my life so I now have dreads and am running for mayor" - Sarah

You left out the hooker. If anything, it will be entertaining. Don't count on the bumpy ride ending in October though. Torontonians (especially the media) have developed a taste for blood.

Didn't Ford also promise everyone that he will lose weight and not drink any alcohol back in November? It seemed as if he'd started to lose weight, apparently 40 lbs or so, but he now looks as if he's slowly, but surely gaining it back. He was clearly drunk on st Patrick's day. So I ask this simple question, if he can't even be honest about what he puts in his mouth, why should we believe anything that comes out of it? Ford is a manipulating, selfish sorry excuse for a mayor, I have to agree he's made Toronto a joke. My vote's definitely going to another, just not someone who can't manage her hair, if she can't even do that,how could she manage a city?

Look I know you guys think I'm too wishy washy, but I'm hoping you'll put aside our differences for a minute or two. You know damn well things are a litttle off in Toronto. Help me fix it. I've got about 5 years left on my life cycle. What would be the point of me lying to you now? I am sincere when I'm trying to tell you, something wrong is going on in Toronto. Wynne is telling you you're safe with her. I'm telling you, you're not. (sigh) YOU'RE NOT! Would it kill you to check out some of the things I've been telling you about? I didn't put my butt on the line to have you brush off what I'm telling you, as some crazy ranting, old women. Do you think I would endure your abuse for nothing? Fools! Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. I've gone to a lot of trouble at my own expense.

Take in what I'm saying or not. I'm done in five years anyways. You're idiots if you don't listen to me.

God speed Ontario.

Well I knew what was coming from you. You're so easy to bait.

How's that Jack Daniels working for you Dr. Kukko?

You deal with nothing. You live in a fantasy world all by yourself, pretending to be tough, when you know damn well a 10-yr-old can kick your ass.

I'm looking forward to meeting you face-to-face. Don't you want to meet me?

Come get some, $5-an-hour mall security guard.

Kneel Hatrick Aris › Why do you think we're building subway extentions (Spadina and Yonge)? To accomodate people in the burbs who don't pay taxes here (because God knows those horrible Scarborough people, who do pay taxes here shouldn't have one). But not to worry. Lesbien Wynne and her buddies at City Hall, will find a way for Torontonians, and other Ontarians (who won't be using the subway) to pay for it, because she's already announced it won't be union people. Oops. I mean the middleclass.

You people make me laugh. You criticize Ford for his use of the english language, but look at what you post. You're worse than Ford. Just goes to show, what kinds of people vote left.

Believe it or not, Thompson has a following. She'll never win, but I guess it doesn't hurt to try.

Poor Sarah. The first leaders debate is happening live right now today 5-7pm and she's a fringe candidate not asked to take part.
