Impending Teachers’ Strike Is So Predictable

Impending Teachers’ Strike Is So Predictable

[ 0 ] April 9, 2015 |

The Teachers’ Union and their members, are not happy.  Where have we heard that before? First was the Elementary Teachers of Ontario (ETFO), who voted in December 2014 with a whopping 95% agreement, to go ahead and strike should talks break down with the Wynne government. A few weeks back, Ottawa area High Schools were announced […]

Maine’s Governor – Wind Power Too Expensive

Maine’s Governor – Wind Power Too Expensive

[ 0 ] April 8, 2015 |

The outspoken Republican Governor, who says wind power is too expensive, is looking to hydro power from Canada and natural gas to bring down electricity prices that are among the highest in the country. The story always seems to be the same, doesn’t it. Solar power, wind power and hefty electricity prices. Oh and subsidies […]

Keeping The Pressure On – Sex Ed Curriculum

Keeping The Pressure On – Sex Ed Curriculum

[ 0 ] April 6, 2015 |

Congratulations goes out to another group of parents opposing the Ontario Sex Ed Curriculum.  This weekend, the protest took place in Windsor. It’s interesting how opposition to this curriculum crosses so many demographic lines. A few weeks back, a large group in Thornecliffe also showed their displeasure with the government thrusting this curriculum into the […]

And The Debt Keeps Growing.

And The Debt Keeps Growing.

[ 0 ] March 31, 2015 |

Tick tock, tick tock. Ontario’s debt clock keeps soldiering on.  Each day, the amount each Ontarian owes, grows.  Each day, the money available for core services is further eroded. Every dollar we must pay in interest on our debt is a dollar less that is not spent on nurses, health care, roads, elderly services or education. As […]

Liar Liar Pants On Fire

[ 0 ] March 30, 2015 |

Liar, Liar pants on fire!  Have you ever wondered, why do Politicians lie? Wouldn’t it be nice if they didn’t? I know, I know, and we all want a pet unicorn that blows golden bubbles and gives us the winning numbers to the lottery. The Huff had an interesting post back in 2012.  Although it […]

You Call This Help Kilo-What Bob? Really?

You Call This Help Kilo-What Bob? Really?

[ 0 ] March 27, 2015 |

So the Liberals are going to offer between a 10 and 50 dollar discount to people having issues with their hydro. But not everyone and not this year. In what can only be described as an obscene attempt to turn the page and change the narrative on their failed Green Energy experiment and Hydro utilities […]

Ontario Power Generation and Hydro One Pensions

Ontario Power Generation and Hydro One Pensions

[ 0 ] March 26, 2015 |

Many Ontarians are still suffering from Hydro One sticker shock.  Their rates are outrageous.   Their service is a mess. If this was a public business, it would have been boycotted successfully and duly shamed by now.  Why?… because they just plain suck and continue to suck with the Liberal government’s blessing. Unfortunately though, we cannot […]

Killer Whales. Really, Killer Whales.

Killer Whales. Really, Killer Whales.

[ 0 ] March 25, 2015 |

So with all the things this government should be concentrating on – say like – our debt, deficit, bad Green Energy Policy, Hydro One, police investigations… These idiots try to turn the channel by banning the importation of Killer Whales. Really. So while petition sites to impose this ban have supporters in the 1500 to […]

Ontario Has A Major Spending Problem

Ontario Has A Major Spending Problem

[ 0 ] March 24, 2015 |

Ontario has a spending problem.  A huge spending problem. We are inching closer to the Wynne Government handing down their first budget.  I fear we’re about to feel that kick in the chops, and hard.   These heavy spenders have an addiction to spending and have a bigger addiction to our money. Wynne and company want […]

Falling Down the Ontario Rabbit Hole

Falling Down the Ontario Rabbit Hole

[ 0 ] March 23, 2015 |

Do you ever wonder if you’ve fallen down the “rabbit hole”? Post after post and story after story, the denominator is the same.  The bills that people are getting from their Hydro utility, are completely out of control. The prices we are paying for hydro, plus the added costs – delivery, HST, debt reduction – […]
