Politics and its Discontents: When A Government Overstays Its Welcome

I am convinced that all institutions have a ‘best-before date,’ after which it is time for massive renewal. Comfort with the status quo, a sense of entitlement, a growing separateness from those they serve are all compelling reasons for ‘creative destruction.’ We have seen that process of renewal take place recently with the election of ...

Politics and its Discontents: A Vanity Production?

Yesterday morning, I read a piece by Martin Regg Cohn on the impending sale of Ontario’s Hydro One. When it is completed, 60% of our publically-owned asset will have been sold off. During a brief walk in the afternoon, I decided to write a letter to my local MPP with a copy to Premier Kathleen ...

Bully Away The Gay is A-OK, According To Religious Wingnuts

Oh dear! Poor Timmy never learned to be a good sport, did he? Poor young Miller, what a poor example she has for a parent!   Poor loser speeches from Cons is nothing new, but Timmy has gone beyond outrageous here: Tory Leader Tim Hudak says the Liberal minority government is too Toronto centric at ...

Maybe It’s Just Me, But Isn’t The (O)NDP Supposed To Be a Forward Thinking Party?

I did see this pic of the orange stiletto on some of my facebook friends’ profile pics and wondered what it was. For them, I thought it was amusing; they were celebrating fall; the advent of Halloween; stuff like that.  After all, I’m in Quebec and not privy to all symbols pertaining to the Ontario ...

Timmy Hudak Sinks To Another All Time Low And Goes All Chuckles McVety

Yes, Boys ‘n’ girls, he really has. He’s gotten really disgusting!  First, he’s been distributing this hideous and grossly misleading pamphlet, seen below,  while campaigning in Brampton earlier this evening. I’m getting a nasty sense of deja-vu when I look at this monstrosity, much like that ad ol’ Chuckles McVety had in the Nasty Post ...

Ontarians, Are You Getting a Sense of Deja-Vu?

It seems that Timmy Hudak is pulling a Stevie Spiteful. When in doubt, bring out the evul coalition bogey man! Speaking at a Toronto hockey arena, Mr. Hudak repeatedly lumped the other two parties together and suggested any alliance would inevitably lead to higher taxes in the province. He said such a coalition would increase ...

Surprised Stevie Hasn’t Scolded Bratty Brad For His Tantrum? I’m Not

Harpercon MP for Saskatoon-Humboldt and Fetus Fetishist extraordinaire, Brad Trost is having a temper tantrum as of late: Late in the afternoon of Thursday, September 22nd, I received a phone call from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) about a news story on the CBC that had run earlier in the day. The CBC reported that ...

Now There’s a Comforting Thought…

That Ubercon wet dream of Stevie Spiteful’s that he went all ga ga giddy over at Mayor Boss Hogg’s hootenanny last summer that was videotaped. Yanno, that video that the Cons seem to  feverishly keep chasing their tails,  trying to keep it off the intertoobz without much success. Well, boys ‘n’ girls, here it is ...

And Timmy Hudak Takes Exception to Being Called a Tea-Partier –Update With Video

Well, if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck… Oh Timmy! If  you don’t want to be referred to as a tea-partier, perhaps you shouldn’t be hiring American Tea-partiers in your inner sanctum. Yeesh! Video H/T WK

I Think We Should Lock That Whole Gang of Miscreants In The John

Before they crap all over Ontario and Canada. Last week, when my husband and I were in Toronto, we were having lunch at the Hot House. We saw some construction. We saw a crane lifting some port-o-craps up. We thought how fun it would’ve been if Rob Ford or Stevie Spiteful or Tony Clement or ...

Canadian Progressive World: Ontario Provincial Election Opportunity To Defeat Stephen Harper

While attending  a barbecue hosted at Toronto mayor Rob Ford’s family home, Prime Minister Stephen called for Liberal Premier McGuinty’s defeat during the October 6 Ontario Provincial election. This isn’t just meddling in provincial politics. Harper has kindly asked Ontarians to put him, and not McGuinty, under the microscope. Before the call, the Ontario election was about the province and ...
