South Dundas - Jun. 18, 2015: Federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau released his
party’s platform in the run up for the 2015 Federal Election this
fall. When it comes to a hodgepodge of promises and ideas, this
document fails to disappoint. However the younger Trudeau misses the
mark. Case in point, electoral reform. Trudeau the Younger, wants to move
away from the first-past-the-post system of voting to one more
representative of Canadian’s wishes. FULL STORY
Windsor - Jun. 6, 2015: As demolition of the Windsor Raceway begins this week I’m reminded of all the good times I spent there over the years. My earliest memory of the place was the day my mom and dad took us to see it. I was about seven years old, and if I remember right, it was an open house affair, where we were all allowed to go out onto the racing surface. It felt like rubber, and was called something like the Tartan Track. FULL STORY
South Dundas - Jun. 6, 2015: Sicko. A sicko, a pervert, who was placed in the trust of guiding
education policy in Ontario for children. How can Premier Kathleen
Wynne not order a review of every document, every policy, every report
or email that Ben Levin, her deputy, dealt with?
How? FULL STORY
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. FULL STORY
South Dundas - Apr. 16, 2015: Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne's frantic look at selling off crown assets to fund her transit and infrastructure plans, is akin to checking the couch cushions for spare change or looking for old jewelery to hock at the cash-for-gold place. It smacks of desperation and its Ontarians that are going to pay in the long run.
Reports are due out today that will recommend that the Ontario government sell off 15 per cent of Hydro One each year, over the next four years, to fund new government spending. FULL STORY
South Dundas - Apr. 14, 2015: One can easily argue that in 2015, we have one of the
most progressive, Liberal governments provincially in Ontario history.
Some in the province will wear that title as a badge of honour. The
badge of being a progressive is not what it was 100 years ago. The provincial PC’s have had their butts
handed to them not once, not twice, or even three times but four
consecutive elections. FULL STORY
Stoney Point - Apr. 10, 2015: Today, I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of a great lady, relentless supporter and a dear friend. Judy Bobka passed away yesterday. Our sympathies to her husband Dan, her daughter Sarah and family. Cornwall, SDG, and the province at large has lost a wonderful human. FULL STORY
South Dundas - Apr. 7, 2015: The Mike Duffy circus has come to town, the only
question really to be answered is, is what role will Duffy be? The
clown, or the ringmaster? It is destined to be three-ringed absurdity
of political mayhem, intrigue and conspiracy. The details will come
out in court, and are well known. The alleged bribe. The alleged false
expense reports. The alleged coverup. Round and round it will go. The
result of the trial, and the fallout from it, will become “Exhibit A”
for the cause of reforming the Senate. FULL STORY
South Dundas - Mar. 31, 2015: The manufactured belief that publicly-owned utilities
like Ontario Power Generation, Hydro One, Cornwall Electric or
Rideau-St. Lawrence Utilities are for our own good, is a falsehood.
Public ownership has morphed over the decades from being for the
common good, to another form of high taxation and waste. FULL STORY
Stoney Point - Mar. 27, 2015: Autism Awareness week kicks off today, March 27th with Light It Blue fast approaching on April 2nd. Autism affects information processing in the brain and how this occurs is not well understood. I love the saying out there that “autism isn’t an operating error … it’s a different operating system.” Autism has been prevalent in the news the last couple of years with some inspirational and some heart wrenching stories.
