Didn't Toronto's last Mayor say he was gonna stop all the violence by closing down all the shooting ranges?
"The victim, believed to be 19 years old, was shot in the back while in the Lawrence Avenue East and Galloway Road area, a spokesperson with Toronto EMS says."Galloway, Galloway... that sounds so familiar.

"At the end of August, physiotherapy services provided to frail elderly in retirement and long-term care homes and in the community — simply to keep them mobile and active — were delisted from OHIP to save $67 million a year."And this is where Premier Wynne thinks she should start chopping?

This isn’t a conspiracy theory; it’s the explicit strategy outlined in the Rockefeller Brothers Fund “Tar Sands Campaign” planning document, written in 2008. It’s white foreign money. With a splash of Canadian Indians for colour.
That’s not a new tactic. But adding in violent Oka-style warriors from Idle No More is new. It’s not just adding Indian bona fides; it’s adding Indian machine guns. That’s why the eco-terrorists in New Brunswick were Indian.It's so weird... they can reject the oil & gas industry, but I don't see anyone trading in their ATVs or F150s for ponies and travois.
Every environmentalist in Canada should be condemning the rioters.

"In this case, the [Canadian] government – one that Mr. Greyson and Mr. Loubani viscerally despise – applied the heat at the highest level. Foreign Minister John Baird even met with his Egyptian counterpart. These two should kiss Mr. Baird’s feet. But I wouldn’t hold my breath."Here's a newsflash for John Greyson.
Come the new Caliphate, I can simply grow my beard a little longer and learn a smidge of Arabic. Unfortunately for you, sir... a 60 second Google search by our new fundamentalist overlords and you will very likely find yourself left dangling from the nearest streetlight.

"anonymouse squeaks... You do realize that Baird is gay."And you, my shallow troll buddy, do realise that I give not a feather what Mr. Baird or anyone else does with their genitalia in private with another consenting adult?
The real problem with the radical gay movement is their insistence in shoving their too often old, wrinkley genitalia into the forefront of any public activity. You define yourself primarily by your genitalia... inevitably, you end up just being a big tiresome dick.

It seems David Suzuki has expensive tastes for someone who wants to shut down the carbon economy within a generation. His primary residence is valued at around $8,200,000.00.And yet Suzuki still manages to present himself as a humble little eco-David battling deep-pocketed Corporate Goliath. The one time advocate of zero population growth... who left his first family and started another.
Suzuki owns four properties in some very exclusive areas. One of his properties includes part of an island he shares with an oil company, among others.
How does he get away with it. I call it "Velvet Touch" syndrome.

-- OTTAWA -- CBC used taxpayers' money to gain access to a movie premier for a film they co-produced and owned the rights to, documents show.I guess that's show-biz.
The offer presented to CBC required an investment ranging from $10,000 for two tickets to $100,000 to sponsor the head table. CBC refused to release the amount they paid to the foundation but the contract shows they purchased a table of 10 plus two single tickets.
The agreement, costing taxpayers somewhere between the quoted prices of $35,000 and $110,000, also called for Suzuki to be granted interviews on CBC shows to profile his life and his film.

Miller’s annual report also slammed the Liberals for gutting the ministry through budget cuts and regulatory changes that weaken important safeguards for provincial parks, species at risk and hunting.But, but, but... they're the ecology party... I saw it in all their commercials. Dalton promised.
Cuts to regulations, staff and programs at the ministry are “short-sighted and regressive” and pose significant ecological risks, he said. It could have “disastrous results” for Ontario’s natural heritage and disrupt the way of life in the north.
“We’re talking about handing over this land to third parties over which we have no control,” Miller said. “So it’s profound change on the highest level.”

On Oct. 4, the debt held by the public — not including Social Security and Medicare — had risen 89.3 percent since Mr. Obama took office, according to FactCheck.org, a nonprofit project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania.Move over Greece.
“At that rate, the debt owed to the public will more than double during the Obama presidency,” FactCheck said in its quarterly statistical report on Mr. Obama’s tenure in office.
Mr. Obama said he won’t talk about long-term budget issues until Republicans agree to reopen the government and raise the debt limit without conditions.

"When Mr. McGuinty pulled the plug on the Oakville plant in the fall of 2010, Auditor-General Bonnie Lysyk found, the Liberals did not take advantage of contract provisions that protected the province from having to compensate TransCanada Corp., the energy giant given the job of building it. Instead, Mr. McGuinty’s aides assured TransCanada it would receive the entire value of the contract."Couldn't have that, could we.
"Under the contract, the government had no legal obligation to compensate TransCanada for lost profits in the event that the company could not complete the project."
“'It may well have been possible for the OPA to wait it out, with no penalty and at no cost,' Ms. Lysyk says in her report."

The large salaries and bonuses drawn down by 2015 Pan Am Games executives were necessary to win the major sporting event, Premier Kathleen Wynne says.How large, you ask?
Games CEO Ian Troop pulls a $390,000 base salary but could see that figure topped by a $780,000 bonus if he completes his term and meets budget and timeline targets.Yes, that's right... the already obscene salaries get tripled by the bonus.
Just something to consider as tax time rolls around once again.
