Here are a few photos from the January 25, 2013 protest against the incompetent, unethical, non-progressive Ontario Liberal Party, outside their leadership convention in downtown Toronto. Hopefully our new temporary premier, Kathleen Wynne, will admit to the many mistakes that she and the Dalton McGuinty government have made, and will work tirelessly to repair the ...

Julian Fantino: once a dirty cop, now a dirty politician The dishonourable Julian “Mussolini” Fantino, Canada’s minister of international cooperation, was recently busted for ordering a pro-Conservative propaganda letter (signed by him) to be published on the website of  the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), a non-partisan federal agency. After the MP for Vaughan was ...

The below updated lyrics to the Phil Ochs classic “Love Me I’m a Liberal” (click on the Justin Bieber — I mean Trudeau — photo for a Youtube video of the original song) were inspired by recent stories about Liberal Party wrongdoings in Canada, and by the false hope that many so-called “progressives” have in ...

The Scott Ross: David McGuinty Shows How Canada Is Changing Alberta

With Alberta’s rise, in population and wealth, its power is said to be growing, however seeing the reaction to Liberal MP David McGuinty’s recent comments it appears Ontario’s influence is thicker than even oil. For where Alberta is a province known for hard working people, on the farm, ranch, and oil patch, who aren’t prone ...

CuriosityCat: Premier McGuinty tries a fast one with his questionable budget

Just like Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Dalton McGuinty is cramming major changes into a bloated budget document, hoping to force the NDP into supporting his budget rather than risk another election so soon after the last one. The Premier is trying ramrod substantial changes to the way Ontario runs its government through by including major ...

Here in sensible Ontario, we tax the rich

So as expected, the McGuinty Liberals compromised with the NDP on the 2012 Ontario budget, applying a surtax to those who earn more than $500,000 a year, in order to fend off another forced election in a no confidence vote. Of course, the aloof Conservatives under Tim Hudak will still vote against the budget, as they have promised[continue ...

The Disaffected Lib: In Defence of Dalton

Weighing the respective merits of the Athabasca Tar Sands and Canadian manufacturing is a hot button issue.  Ontario premier McGuinty found that out when he state, quite rightly, that one of the impacts of the Athabasca bitumen is to strengthen the Canadian dollar which, in turn, undermines competitiveness in the Canadian manufacturing sector. McGuinty only ...

Politics and Entertainment: McGuinty-Redford Dollar-Tar Sands Dance

Wouldn’t a lower Canadian dollar encourage both foreign investment in Canada and investment and saving by Canadians in Canada where purchasing power would be stronger than in a foreign market? And wouldn’t it also make Canadian export goods, no matter which province is their source, more attractive to foreign buyers since they would have greater purchasing power ...

Edwin Current: I Do Not Want Canada to be Americanized!

Great commentary from The Globe and my favourite part: “At the same time, voters will have to decide what they make of today’s Americanized Conservatives as represented by Mr. Harper, Mr. Hudak and Toronto Mayor Rob Ford – all men who yearn for a simpler, long-vanished society that no longer represents today’s Canada.” I for ...

Trashy's World: Friday miscellany… dumbasses & the Ottawa Sun…

Woo hoo! Stevo has been denied that so-called trifecta that he dreamed about! The most laughable thing about this is that it was likely one of his fishing buddies, Rob Ford, that tilted this one into McGuinty’s column. But crap, 49.2% turnout? That is very disappointing. Oh, and stay classy, Ottawa Sun: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ LEAFS WIN! ...

Trashy's World: Ontario projection… just for the hell of it…

Yeah, yeah… I and everyone else was off base last time when all of we so-called “pundits” tried to pick the outcome of the May 2 election. And I have learned my lesson and won’t do it again. …. NOT! I love trying to predict outcomes of elections! Back in the old days (before May ...

Pop The Stack: Advice to Ontario Leaders about Minority – Stick to the Issues

There is talk now that Ontario may elect a minority government in the upcoming election. My advice: leaders should avoid making promises about what they would or would not do to form government. Once the people have spoken and the seat counts are settled, only then can the parties know what their options are. Parties can ...

Edwin Current: Andrea Howarth and Ontario NDP Only After Political Gain?

It’s becoming more and more clear that the Andrea Howarth led NDP party is NOT the NDP of the past fighting for social injustice. In fact, I think this NDP’s new direction seems like a deceptive representation of the NDP brand and almost right leaning.  Some claim Andrea Howarth and Ontario NDP are only after political and personal gains.  ...
