Bad News Seems To Follow Wynne Government.

Bad News Seems To Follow Wynne Government.

[ 0 ] May 16, 2015 |

It hasn’t been such a good week for Wynne’s Liberals. Bob Chiarelli made a fool out of himself by shrugging off the very well worded warnings from 8 separate Officers of the Legislature.  Their pointed concerns over the diminishing oversight to Ontario’s Hydro System is being applauded by everyone except those in the Liberal Party […]

What do you have when the offices of Auditor-General Bonnie Lysyk, Ombudsman Andre Marin, the information and privacy commissioner, financial accountability officer, integrity commissioner and French language services commissioner and the advocate for Children and Youth, all sign a letter warning that the sale of Hydro One and the bill before the MPPs, will “significantly […]

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 […]

Congratulations to Patrick Brown and his very hard working team on their spectacular win of Leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party. It was a hard fought race and Christine Elliot was a formidable opponent. Now that this is done, (and yes, I’m glad to get this out of the way), we as conservatives, big […]

Alberta Goes NDP Orange

Alberta Goes NDP Orange

[ 0 ] May 7, 2015 |

Those of us with a few extra years under our belt, aren’t sure whether to laugh or cry. Watching what just happened Tuesday in Alberta, is mind numbing on a few levels. For those of us that are old enough to remember someone by the name of Bob Rae, there has to be a sense of […]

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, […]

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 […]

Here A Strike, There A Strike

Here A Strike, There A Strike

[ 0 ] April 20, 2015 |

Here a strike, there a strike, everywhere a strike. Even though various unions threw millions of dollars into helping Wynne and her Liberals get elected, clearly it wasn’t enough for labour peace. Durham announced Saturday night that their Secondary Teachers will not be hitting the classrooms on Monday.  High School kids in the region, will […]

More Taxes Are Coming – Again!

More Taxes Are Coming – Again!

[ 0 ] April 11, 2015 |

For many years, we’ve heard liberals say: well I don’t mind paying higher taxes if it meant we received good services. Or they would say: I don’t mind paying more in taxes if we have the best health care system in the world. Their rational was always the same, we don’t mind paying more, because […]
