Does the Hydro Sale Have Hidden Details?

Does the Hydro Sale Have Hidden Details?

[ 0 ] May 17, 2015 |

I find myself in the strange position of having to agree with CUPE. They warn that the details of the sale would actually be kept secret from the public, because of the way Bill 91 is written. “In short, Bill 91 doesn’t do what we’ve been told. It ends public accountability and regulation of Hydro […]

CHEO Chops Nurse Jobs

[ 0 ] May 13, 2015 |

The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario has announced that they are going to be cutting 50 nursing positions.  There are approximately the equivalent of 27 full time positions on the chopping block and the union is claiming that could impact 50 different nurses in actual job losses. While it’s easy to shake our finger at […]

The Curriculum That Bands Parents Together

The Curriculum That Bands Parents Together

[ 0 ] May 10, 2015 |

There was an interesting article in the Globe and Mail this weekend. The press has picked up on something that the rest of us have known for quite some time.  Opposition to this radical Sex Ed Curriculum is not just noise by a few religious zealots or uptight homophobes. If that were the case, the […]

We Say No!

We Say No!

May 5, 2015 |

Nothing cuts to the chase for people quicker, than when someone wants to mess with your child. This Sex Ed Curriculum is proving to be Ms Wynne’s rocky road to ruin. I’ve watched carefully as rallies have popped up around the province.  Admittedly, I’m blown away by the turn out and the overwhelming support by the […]

Polls Show Wynne’s Popularity Continuing to Slip

Polls Show Wynne’s Popularity Continuing to Slip

[ 0 ] May 3, 2015 |

It’s interesting that consecutive polls show that Wynne’s popularity is falling. There seems to be quite a distaste for some of her policies.  As posted yesterday, OPSEU members, Teachers Unions, Nurse’s Unions are all very unhappy with the underhanded governmental cuts. Couple that with, the fierce opposition to the Sex Ed Curriculum and Ms Wynne […]

Ontario’s Winter Highway Boondoggle

Ontario’s Winter Highway Boondoggle

[ 0 ] May 1, 2015 |

Another day, another Liberal mess. So those major pile ups on the 401 this winter weren’t an anomaly after all.  It would appear that the contract process for clearing our provincial roads ran into yet another typical Liberal snafu.  I can’t say that this is surprising.  Their track record for incompetence just keeps getting longer and […]

Ontario In The Dark

Ontario In The Dark

[ 0 ] April 29, 2015 |

Well, well, a recent poll suggests that if Wynne and her Liberals sell off Hydro one, 50% of Ontarians would not vote for her in the next election. Is that significant?  In a word yes. All politicians live and die by polls.  Wynne’s Ontario honeymoon period is clearly sliding down the rabbit hole. I think […]

Sex Ed Curriculum – We Will Not Surrender Our Children!

Sex Ed Curriculum – We Will Not Surrender Our Children!

[ 0 ] April 26, 2015 |

So a small group of kids, and I do say KIDS, show up at Queens Park to say they support the Sex Ed Curriculum. Considering the amount of life experience these kids have, the fact that this made news at all, is rather sad.  I get that CP24 is a smaller news agency, but geeze, […]

Liberal Economics And Their Budget Of Doom

Liberal Economics And Their Budget Of Doom

[ 0 ] April 24, 2015 |

There are so many things wrong with the Liberal budget, that I don’t know where to start.  That said, I want to get a chance to study it before getting into the specifics. On to the one thing I am sure about – this disastrous idea to sell off Hydro One, or part of it. It’s good […]

Strikes Hold Students And Parents Hostage

Strikes Hold Students And Parents Hostage

[ 0 ] April 21, 2015 |

I did a quick search and found that in recent history, there has not been a teacher’s strike called in Ontario, that would impact “summer vacation”.  There might be one, but I certainly could not find instance of it. It’s interesting is it not? Care to wonder aloud with me, why that might be? It seems that […]
