Favourite Part:

“””The list of fiscal crimes and misdemeanors committed by the Millerites is lengthy.

It’s not just that Miller and Co. increased spending on the operating budget by 44% and on the capital budget by another 250% over their seven years in charge of the city’s coffers.

Or that they hiked the city’s net debt by 176% — a move that has pushed the yearly debt service charges in the operating budget to more than $400-million, representing the third largest cost (after police and the TTC) paid for by our property tax bills.

Miller and Co. raided the city’s reserve funds to near depletion and relied repeatedly on one-time bailouts from Queen’s Park. Instead of putting any money away for a rainy day, they plunked budget surpluses from one year back into the following year’s budget — all the while spending with impunity on at least 500 more city staff per year, higher wages, arts and culture grants, rent concessions and loan guarantees for special interest groups, eco-schemes and their own perks.””””

Favorite paragraph: “The lawns on which they park, the buildings in front of which they demonstrate, the mass media that gives them attention, the universities many of them attended – the very luxury that allows whole swathes of people to take two or three months, squat in a downtown park, and apparently live quite satisfactorily – all came from, or was enabled by, the system they thoughtlessly despise. Not to mention that all those iPhones and laptops, the backpacks and sneakers, the espresso machines and digital cameras didn’t manufacture themselves. The Occupiers are only too comfortable using the products and the largesse of capitalism while railing against it.””

Fellow Conservatives.

We are sadden to learn about the passing of Jack Layton the former leader of the official opposition and former leader of the NDP who lead the NDP to historic new highs during the last federal election including becoming Canada’s official opposition.

Although we didn’t often share the same view on many issues Mr Layton was a passionate and dedicated leader whose positive outlook and positive nature helped to inject a much-needed positive outlook into today’s political system. He was an inspiration to many Canadians for his hard work, dedication and ability to connect with Canadians using his almost natural charisma  that inspired many Canadians.

Hopefully with his passing we can all take some time to reflect on how we all can contribute to making a better Canada for all.

We realized that death especially our own mortality is a very touchy subject. But given the rates of organ donation in this province it is one of the most generous things one can do for others.

Especially given the tolerance that some in the LGBT have given his wishes to enjoy a traditional family event at the family cottage. The city will be contributing to the financing of the parade, giving support services like clean up not to mention many members of the city council will probably be going to the parade itself.  So should the mayor be required to attend events like the pride parade or is offering support for these types of major events enought?

What would you like to see our government of Canada focus on for it’s priorities?
