In defence of the TTC

I’m one of those people that tries to avoid arguments and heated discussions. I mean, they’re fun sometimes – pretty much when you try to trash my team in front of me. Like nope, only the fans themselves can trash their own team because they’re the ones who actually experience the pain when it happens, therefore they are allowed to trash their own team – but when it comes to netizen comments or social media comments in general, I try to avoid them. In fact, the last time I left a YouTube comment was a positive one.

But today, because of the TTC emergency shutdown during morning rush hour, I came across a friend’s Facebook post who shared a news article about the incident, and commented by saying that the TTC is trash and they’re not doing enough to become a better transit system.

Now look, I ride the TTC five days a week. My commute is 1.5 hours long. That’s 3 hours everyday. 3 hours that I could use more productively. So if I have the right to complain, I have it, but to say that the TTC hasn’t done anything to better themselves in the past few years is a lie.

Hong Kong’s Umbrella Revolution

If freedom of expression and freedom of the press continue to be seriously eroded, then foreign investors will begin to ask themselves, “Why bother to be in Hong Kong, if Hong Kong is going to be just another Chinese city? Why not move straight into China?”

Anson Chan

This quote makes me think: Economically, maybe that’s exactly what China wants. For the fall of Hong Kong as a financial hub, as the gateway between Eastern and Western businesses, and the most accessible Asian city for North Americans.

  • Been looking for a yummy green smoothie around London for ages, and I've finally found one! @savsesmoothies, it was honestly love at first taste. 😍 Well worth the @wholefoodsuk price I paid for it. Can't wait to try the "super orange" flavour.
  • I rarely post selfies on my Instagram, but when I do, I make sure I've done Meitu touch-ups on my face. 😂 #SummerSelfie
  • When asking a stranger to take a group photo, always ask a female millennial. More likely than not, they will understand the importance of having the perfect Instagram frame. Thank you, kind stranger, for taking a good photo of us!
  • Springtime is here in London. #cherryblossoms
  • Random throwback to when the president of my alma mater came to visit my new home city. 🎓 Super weird to see these two worlds collide! #Ryerson #TRSMalumni
