John Tory CFRB on UBB

I'm listening to the Jim Richards show now, John Tory just came on to preview his show, and he said he'll cover UBB at some point during tonights show

Keep in mind prior to him jumping into Politics, he was President of Rogers Cable.... so i'm not sure what to expect.

His show runs from 4-7, and can be streamed at »www.cfrb.com

but remember his show is a call in show, so don't be afraid to give them a call and speak your mind, CFRB's number is 416-872-1010 or 1-800-561-CFRB. I'll try but I might be on the bus on my way home from work.

Re: John Tory CFRB

I saw him on Rogers community TV a couple of times when he was at Rogers, they had a weekly show with call ins and product demos. He didn't seem like a Corporate drone to me but who knows what he'll say.

I'll try if I make it home before the segment airs, but i'm pretty sure CFRB posts the show up online the next day anyways.

Yup. And also ex-CEO of Robbers as others have mentioned.

Yes, also former Commissioner of the CFL, GO CFL!!!..

I think he was the most decent of the Rogers' Presidents because he seemed to be more accountable and more to the people.

Its too bad he didn't decide to run for Mayor of Toronto again after narrowly losing in 2003...but I'm sure his family is happy to be out of the spotlight.

For those unawares, John Tory was also the PC campaign director for the 1993 federal election, who along with Allan Gregg (who has a show on TVO) launched the infamous 1993 Chretien attack ad (that focused on his facial deformity) that pretty much finished Kim Campbell (who had been polling much higher than Chretien in the leadership polls).

Assuming the segment hasn't been dropped, it should be on this hour.

He jumped from Rogers to run against David Miller in the 2003 municipal election, lost and ran for pc leader after that.

OK. It's on now. I'm recording it to a voice note.

If JF or someone can host the file I can ship it when it's over...

He keeps shilling Bhell and Robbers (of course) over the 100s of millions of investments and then chastises the gov't for not making it a public utility?

Tell me, they wouldn't operate at a LOSS! Dummy.

So, John (supposi-)Tory, you still managed to pull out a tidy buck out of Robbers while you were there with no caps for the most part? And still can afford to make "investments". And still pay the shareholders a few sheckels in dividends. And didn't eat peanut butter sandwiches. F me.

How f'n greedy, how much f'n money do you need to MAKE? Please, already before I explode. I'm grumpy enough with this cold going around, and now I have to listen to this bilge.

No actual discussion, he basically just stated his opinion that he thinks that Bell and Rogers have a right to make a profit on Usage Based Billing. He has a couple of more guests coming up and doesn't think he'll have time to get a discussion in on the topic..

He just talked about how when he worked at Rogers that the largest bandwidth users were people watching Porn and HD Porn... this guy is a tool..

Doesn't seem he has any concept of what people are using the internet for in this day and age.. I assume that all he uses the internet for is Email and web browsing.

Makes me glad I didn't vote for this ass clown.
