VIDEO: The Sarah Thomson Campaign for Mayor of Toronto released a parody of the Ke$ha and Pitbull music video “Timber”:
The revised lines (sung by Sarah Thomson and Kanye White) mirror Sarah’s commitment to taking transit underground with her Tunnel Toronto Plan. “It’s going down, I’m yelling timber; we’ll build the subway, a vast expanse.”
The song goes on with lines, “Let’s stop the fight let’s work together … ” reflecting Thomson’s desire to bring both sides of the transit debate together, to unite the city around her Tunnel Toronto Plan.
Sarah Thomson has dedicated her life for the past five years to advocating for transit expansion in Toronto. Unlike other candidates, Thomson is in the race with a strong mission to build the tunnels today that Toronto needs for a strong economic future.
“I’ll do whatever it takes to inspire people to invest in transit expansion, in a strong future for our children and grandchildren. We must put tolls on non-residents using the DVP and Gardiner Expressway to fund and get the construction started on the Yonge Street Relief Line.”
Sarah Thomson created this parody music video to reach beyond the regular news channels to inspire those frustrated with the lack of true leadership on transit expansion in Toronto.
From music videos, transit town halls, to mayoral roundtables, Sarah Thomson has dedicated more time to transit expansion in Toronto than any other mayoral candidate. Her administration will set about building the transit Toronto needs immediately.
