South Dundas - May. 20, 2015: Isn't it ironic that the very unions which supported Kathleen Wynne and the provincial Liberal party during the 2014 election, are, one year later, protesting the actions of that party in power? It is not just one union which has been hit with this irony either, but on many fronts. The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) spent $1.3 million in third-party election advertising in 2014, campaigning directly and in-directly against a Progressive Conservative government in Queen’s Park.

    The 8 Week Challenge - It’s Not A Diet

Windsor - May. 7, 2015: Today’s column comes with a disclaimer. It’s not for the faint of heart. To my family, friends and associates, the following may be quite shocking to all of you. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I haven’t had a coffee in over a week. Or French fries. Or pizza. Or a lot of things I used to eat and drink. Why? Because along with ten of my colleagues at DJ Galvanizing, and our spouses, I began a program called the 8 Week Challenge. FULL STORY

Follow the Yellow Brick Road at Devonshire Mall

Liberal Government Selling Off Assets Without Accountability
Cornwall - Apr. 17, 2015: The Government’s plan to sell 60% of Hydro One and direct the funds to infrastructure building is being challenged by opposition parties and major stakeholders as illegal. Once Hydro One is sold off, revenue from the sold-off components will no longer be available to service the $27 billion debt, driving up rates. We do not trust a Government that has mismanaged the Province’s finances for over a decade to deliver a transparent and economically sound asset sale, especially when their stated intention is to waste shareholders’ money in dubious infrastructure schemes.
