I have to say that my daughter Cookie is the most amazing, loving, caring, precious, wonderful young lady on the planet. Bar none. She is better than your daughter because she is MY daughter. And as her father, I would do anything to keep her happy….Anything.
I believe the above statement is probably true for anyone with a daughter, including our Ontario Ombudsman Andre Marin, whose daughter just happens to be dating the grand nephew of long time Liberal Cabinet Minister Bob Chiarelli.
Under normal circumstances this would be just peachy. But we have a problem here. Marin is charged with investigating thousands of complaints against HydroOne. HydroOne is under the auspice of the Minister of Energy, who happens to be……you guessed it….Bob Chiarelli.
This begs the question….Where in the world would this type of conflict of interest be acceptable? The answer is clear. In Liberal run Ontario, Canada, that’s where.
Mister Marin may indeed be impartial on this but this certainly does not pass the sniff test. My prediction is that Marin will delete the tweet and break up the lovebirds.
OfficiallyScrewed in my opinion.
1) She has one term in parliament
2) She needs one more election to get her MP pension.
3) The Conservatives told her she couldn’t run for them
4) She jumped ship to the Liberals.
Add it up. She wants her pension.
At least Belinda left the Tories for a Ministerial post. Eve just looks greedy.
In any case, I sense she will be OfficiallyScrewed come next election.
Ahhh Justin Trudeau. How fuzzy are your slippers? How cozy is your cardigan? How warm is your Linus security blanket? How soft and mushy is your brain?
If the bunny cuddler gets elected Prime Minister, Canada will be officiallyscrewed.
Today Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals raised miniumum wage in Ontario from $10.25 to $11.00. Either she doesn’t do math or she is nickel and diming. She announced that she would tag the rise to inflation since 2010 when it was last raised.
Yet by my math when I take the CPI inflation rate in Canada over the past 4 years and multiply the rate by the current $10.25 minimum wage I get a $10.96 minimum wage.
CPI inflation for 2010 – 2.35%
CPI inflation for 2011 – 2.30%
CPI inflation for 2012 – 0.83%
CPI inflation for 2013 – 1.24%
So $10.25 x 1.0235 x 1.0230 x 1.0083 x 1.0124 = $10.955
So she has just tagged in an added 4.45 cents. You may think this is paltry but it is another way she is nudging Ontario small businesses over the cliff a nickel at a time.
I am stunned that someone actually felt the terms B.C. and A.D. need to be changed because they refer to Christianity. But in this article, the reversal of this decision is discussed.
The museum, like many institutions that study history, some time ago dropped BC (for “before Christ”) and AD (for “anno Domini,” the Latin phrase for “in the year of the Lord”) in describing dates. Instead, it has used CE (for “common era”) and BCE (before the common era). But no more.
How screwed up is that?
The Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa went with the new terms but are reversing the decision for interactions with the public and only maintaining the BCE and CE terms for academic purposes. Why even bother?
The best quote to describe this was made by Kelly McParland, who said:
It’s my opinion that the museum is playing with fire. Maybe that’s why they’re changing their own name from Canadian Museum of Civilization to the Canadian Museum of History. Which is presumably being done to avoid offending the uncivilized.
Not much more needs to be said other than the U.N. is crapping on Canada stating that we are a nation with too much child hunger and as such can’t preach about human rights in other nations.
The U.N. can kiss my lily white ass. Go find a third world country to bitch about you hypocrites.
January 1st, 2013 was an amazingly sad day for Californians. They had over 800 new laws to abide by.
That’s 2 over 2 laws per day of the year.
How does a state pass that many laws? Where do they find the time?
The “Why do they pass this many?” question is easy. It’s a cash grab. Most of these laws have fines.
I am taking this opportunity to iterate my firm belief that for every new law created, legislatures should need to remove 2 old ones. It’s the only way our freedom will be returned. At this rate, we will not be able to breathe without the state endorsing it.
My prediction: By 2050 there will be a law to tell you how many breaths you can take and everyone will be legally required to wear one of those work out monitors that uses bluetooth to communicate to our bioembedded cellular device that tattles to the state if we breathe too much.
Californians are OfficiallyScrewed.
