We don't buy into Capitalism: A Love Story 

Michael Moore offers no solutions, just the usual rhetoric.

The last thing I wanted to see was Michael Moore make a comedic song and dance out of the death of the world. Capitalism: A Love Story is the most he’s managed to keep his ego at bay (ie: the least he appears in one of his movies) since Fahrenheit 9/11. But Moore squanders his serious points about corporate slavery and economic crisis. Insisting on simplifications---poor equals virtuous, rich equals corrupt---he invites distrust to all but the converted. The threat of corporations becoming government is too heavy a subject for Moore’s lone-spokesman-of-the-working-class crusade. He never digs far enough to propose an alternative to succumbing to the world’s capitalist excess.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
