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.
You all know if it has to do with getting OfficiallyScrewed, I am all over it. Well this bit of humour showed up in my in box this morning. Thanks Renzo.
I’m sure you’ve seen Kathleen Wynne running up and down nice roads in those commercials. Well this is the real road she is leading Ontario down.
Kathleen Wynne’s Road
Keep following her and Ontario is….officiallyscrewed.
Yup. This is about the way we feel here at OfficiallyScrewed.com with the Quebec election campaign underway.
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.
After reading this article, Old Saint Nick sent me the letter below to share….
Dear James, (aka Mayor Jim Watson),
I was surprised that you would get jealous about Toronto getting $600M for three new transit stops. After all, I have been more than generous to you and your Liberal friends with an embarassment of riches. Jeolousy won’t get you off of my “Naughty List”. You can’t possibly be surprised to know that you are on this list. But just in case you are wondering why, I have noted a few reasons below.
For starters when you got elected to the provincial legislature in 2003, the Ontario Liberal party promised to not raise taxes and immediately imposed a massive health care premium. Lying is something Santa takes very seriously.
Then Santa did his best to give the Ontario Liberals (of which you are one) more money to spend wisely. But what did they do? They decided to drop a cool Billion dollars on eHealth, but their oversight let it all go to waste.
I then gave you and your friends another billion dollar gift and they blew it by giving blank cheques to Orange, the air ambulance company who blew it on things like two motorcycles from Orange County Choppers.
I then gave the Ontario Liberals yet another billion dollar Christmas gift but instead of building gas plants, they selfishly wasted the money to move the plants so they could win a couple of seats near Mississauga.
And guess what? I also gave you and your Liberal cronys another billion dollars of hard earned tax money and instead of sending some to you for your choo choo train, they decided to put up solar panels and windmills that will leave a legacy of debt to be paid off by Ontarian tax payers on their Hydro bills.
And now I am hearing that cronyism is running amock as your friend Kathleen Wynn is creating a bunch of advisory boards and loading them up with liberal party hacks. This is a slap in the face of Ontario taxpayers.
To get on my “Nice List” people need to share. They need to tell the truth. They need to appreciate what they have been given and not throw these gifts away for personal gain or benefit.
I urge you to think about these things. You have the ear of your fellow Liberals. How YOU choose to use your voice will determine if you get back on my “Nice List”.
In a shocking revelation, Ontario Finance Minister under the Liberal McGuinty government came out this past week in support of Pro Life. Duncan has decided that teenagers and their parents have no choice in what they choose to do with their own bodies.
This reminds me of when the Canadian Medical Association did the same.
We should never negotiate with terrorists. Yet it looks like the Liberal Charest government in Quebec has done so.
Student leaders and the provincial government reached an agreement over tuition costs in principle on Saturday a day after violent protests left two men critically injured and one of them partially blind.
Tens of thousands of students have been on strike for more than 80 days since the government announced it was going to increase tuition by $1,625 or 75%.
