Eagerly awaiting all the witty comments and questions - grabbing popcorn.

Yup. It looks impressed.

Any chance someone will speak up about freezing GO passes? Or getting increased service for GO lines without evening and weekend service?

This has to be Metrolinx's dumbest PR stunt. In the very limited number of Twitter posts I read, there was at least one person with allergies to goat dander. I hope no one in close proximity to Turbo develops a rash tonight. Whereas children need exposure to agriculture, it's not GO Transit's mandate to bring the farm to the city. Bus drivers have a hard enough time dealing with pax and their fake guide dogs. This just opens the door for more abuse the drivers don't need. I hope the Royal Winter Fair doesn't bleed red ink this year, but I don't think Turbo will put the RWF in the black.

I thought it was quite fun. I wish people would stop bleating on about it.

How does someone know he or she is allergic to goat dander???
Seriously. That's what we've come down to with general pettiness?
It's public transit. You got people who come from homes with all kinds of animals in them. Give me a break.

Okay, goat dander is a bit precious, but fake guide dogs? Really? That's a thing?

I don't like it when people park in the blue zone who aren't genuinely living with a disability, but honestly... if someone wants to commit to the fraud by strapping a service animal harness on a non-guide dog, I'm not making a federal case out of it.

Can we have a calf on the Barrie line? Calves are almost like dogs — so cute: http://bit.ly/1M5XRue
