Drivers still entering Queens Quay streetcar tracks despite TTC warning paint

The TTC’s latest effort to stop drivers from accidentally driving onto the streetcar tracks at Queens Quay and Spadina may not be working.

On Tuesday, the TTC painted the track area bright red to identify the track area to drivers, but just days after drivers were still spotted entering the area.


Kevin, whose condo overlooks the area, told 680 NEWS many drivers making the left turn overshoot their lane and wind up on the tracks.

“Some people actually don’t see their mistake until somebody honks at them and then they’ll get out of the lane,” he explained.

“Some people instantly stop halfway (into the lane) and then back up, which creates more chaos for the people behind them.”

The red paint is part of ongoing effort by the TTC to help drivers avoid potentially dangerous encounters with streetcars on Queens Quay.

Further east of the area, near York Street, rumble strips and barriers had to be installed after drivers repeatedly entered the streetcar tunnel.

Clerical Celibacy: Its Root and Fruit

The Kindled Flame Blog

On July 26, 2013, as Pope Francis was riding in his motorcades through Rio de Janerio, Brazil, a boy, Nathan de Brito broke past the barriers and went to the pope, whispering into his ears: “Your holiness, I want to be a priest of Christ, a representative of Christ.”

The Pope burst into tears and said to Nathan, “I am going to pray for you but I ask that you pray for me.” The video trended, and it brought tears to the eyes of passionate Catholics.

I wonder how many times the boy had to rehearse this before he heard the count: One… Two…Three…action! The timing and location had to be right too, with a lot of cameras around. I love good drama, don’t you?

Without being distracted by the emotional tryst, Nathan de Brito did raise a serious point: the priest represents Jesus to the…

Paedophilia Supporting VICE Publishes Article by Convicted Child Molester

VICE published an article on prison fights written by a man currently serving 45 years in prison for “three counts of sexual abuse of a child under 16,” on Friday.

The article, titled “My Gay Prison Gang Fights Neo-Nazis,” was written by convicted child molester Dennis Mintun. In the article, Mintun brags about how his “Rainbow Warriors” prison gang fights with neo-Nazis in prison.

Then, at the very bottom, VICE reveals that the 56-year-old Mintun “is incarcerated at the Idaho State Correctional Institution in Boise, Idaho, where he is serving a 45-year sentence for three counts of sexual abuse of a child under 16.”

“On July 22, 2002, Mintun induced three boys, ages seven, nine, and ten, to touch and/or be touched and kissed by the other boys with the intent to gratify Mintun’s sexual desire,” claimed an online record at FindLaw, which indicates Mintun was charged in 2007. “Mintun took photographs of the boys touching and kissing each other. Two of the boys were brothers and the third was a cousin, and at least one was a nephew of Mintun.”

“Count IV alleged that, on a different date, Mintun committed sexual abuse by inducing the ten-year-old boy to watch and photograph Mintun while Mintun masturbated,” the report continued. “Mintun testified at trial and acknowledged taking pictures of the three boys, but said that his affection for the boys was not sexual and that he saw nothing wrong with brothers and cousins kissing and hugging each other. Mintun was convicted on all counts.”

Breitbart News has reached out to VICE for comment.

VICE is not the first mainstream media outlet to publish content from a self-confessed pedophile.

Salon has published several articles written by “virtuous pedophile” Todd Nickerson, including, “I’m a pedophile, but not a monster,” and “I’m a pedophile, you’re the monsters: My week inside the vile right-wing hate machine.


In one video, Nickerson detailed how he “fell in love” with a child he was babysitting, and how he was forced to “masturbate in the bathroom” to relieve himself while looking after her.

Last year, Salon deleted the articles, and claimed they were published under “old management.”
