Ottawa Green Bins A Waste of Waste Part 2

So in an honest effort to take part, I have been filling my countertop green bin with coffee grounds/filters, turkey bones, pork chop bones, lettuce ends, onion peels, egg shells and dirty paper towels for the past two weeks.

Last Sunday night I went to lift the paper bag (lined with a plastic) that came with the bin out of it and the bottom of the bag fell out effectively making the bag more waste.

So I went to the grocery store and spent 6 bucks on 20 plasticky type compostable bags.

I wonder if this bag will also start to compost before I get a chance to toss it out.

PREDICTION: The green bin program will fall flat on it’s face within 3 months leaving us nowhere to put our eggshells except on the face of Ottawa’s left wing city councilors.

New Twist To "Tax and Spend Liberal"

Today, columnist Michael Harris pinned the tail on the Iggy when he addressed Iggy’s “new” love for the environment.

A man who has just been knocked down by a bus doesn’t usually get up and jump in front of a train.

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff has done just that with the announcement that the “heart” of the Liberal platform in the next federal election will be the environment and clean energy. Has a political death wish ever been expressed more clearly? And didn’t they try that, albeit in reverse, in the last federal bun fight?

The plan under Stephane Dion was a carbon tax; the Ignatieff approach is oceanic government spending on clean energy.

But the key is this next line. If we were using hockey analogies, this next line is the equivalent of “putting it top shelf where mama keeps the peanut butter”.

Between these two professors, the traditional Liberal bases have been covered tax and spend.

Iggy is the “Spend” to Dion’s “Tax”.

Brilliant.

McShifty Taking It On The Chin. Let Our eHealth System Sew Him Up

Dalton McGuinty’s government is taking more heat on E-health.

In his 50-page report on eHealth released today, Auditor General Jim McCarter said he found Ontario taxpayers “have definitely not received value for money on the $1 billion spent to date.”He suggests that the actual value of services received wasn’t anywhere near the $1 billion in untendered contracts, and Ontarians have not received hundreds of millions of dollars worth of what they should have.McCarter blames the waste of money on the government spending hundreds of millions with no proper strategic plan on the results it wanted.He also blamed lack of supervision over the agency.

When will Ontarians learn that McShifty and his cronies are officially screwing us over?

Veterans Put Union To Shame – Another Proud Victory

Several months ago I blogged about a union complaint over a city councillors aide cleaning up a steaming pile of shhhhhhaving cream on the floor in the city’s main library.

In Scugog, a councillor had lowered a flag to half mast on a Saturday and the local union filed a grievance stating that this was a union responsibility. After getting lashed from the veterans groups, the union has decided to withdraw the grievance.
I am pleased to see that there is still hope and sanity in the world.
