Wynne’s Baseless Accusations

Wynne’s Baseless Accusations

[ 0 ] April 16, 2015 |

Funny isn’t it? Wynne is showing her true colors at lightning speed. Anyone who opposes Ms. Wynne, HAS to be a homophobe. They HAVE to be working for the Progressive Conservatives somehow. They HAVE to be uninformed, under-educated neanderthals. Anyone who doesn’t hold Ms. Wynne’s point of view is a mean spirited homophobic conservative redneck. This should […]

Taxes And Electricity Costs Are Crippling Ontarians.

Taxes And Electricity Costs Are Crippling Ontarians.

[ 0 ] April 3, 2015 |

Randel Denley’s column in the Ottawa Citizen makes a good argument for a flat tax. Within that article, there is something I don’t think most Ontarians know.  I certainly didn’t. In Alberta, people pay no provincial taxes on their first $18,214 of income. In Ontario, only $9,863 is sheltered from tax. Considering that the personal exemption […]

Wynne’s Ruffled Feathers

Wynne’s Ruffled Feathers

[ 0 ] February 25, 2015 |

We knew it was only a matter of time before Ms Wynne would play “that card” in order to vilify someone. Ms Wynne has happily ridden on the coat tails that she is openly gay when it suits her, but then has the audacity to claim homophobia when there is criticism directed at her. Talk […]

Deb Matthews said this about how they plan for government works to become more efficient: “By focusing on outcomes and rigorous evidence, by enabling transformation, by streamlining access to services and by using technology to drive better value.” In other words gobblygook politician speak for – cuts are coming.  No big surprise to those of […]

Did You Get Your Home Energy Report From Hydro One?

Did You Get Your Home Energy Report From Hydro One?

[ 0 ] February 5, 2015 |

This week we got a nice envelop from Ontario Hydro One.  It told us that they compared our usage to 100 other consumers.  We ranked somewhere in the middle.  Whiptee-do. There is a lot about this correspondence that bugs me.  Why is this being sent out?  How much is this exercise in stupidity costing?  Besides […]

Estate Trustees Beware

Estate Trustees Beware

[ 0 ] January 30, 2015 |

Estate trustees beware! Wynne wants that estate cash too. Ontarians have already paid tax on their held assets.  Lots and lots of tax.  The items already had tax paid on them, at the time of purchase.  The income that was earned was taxed heavily during their working years.  Anything that managed to be saved was […]

Wynne Tax Grabs Will Kill The Economy of Ontario

[ 0 ] January 15, 2015 |

Premier Wynne said that she won’t rule out a Carbon Tax for Ontario.  Of course she won’t – mostly because she has no intention of ruling out using any means possible to extract more money from YOUR pocket. The problem with a Carbon Tax is that its cost is not just on the fuel one consumes […]

Freedom Of Information Requests Not So Transparent

Freedom Of Information Requests Not So Transparent

[ 0 ] January 12, 2015 |

Ah, the precious Freedom of Information Act.  The name inspires confidence that those we elect and those who work in government agencies are subject to our scrutiny.   This is supposed to keep everyone honest, above board and accountable.  Apparently. Good idea on paper.  Not so much in practice. As we have seen, the Ontario Liberals […]
