Federal election ’19 primer: favourtism, breaking the law

Not a Leader

“He trampled over the rule of law, in the LavScam scandal to save jobs (so Trudeau says) and Liberal seats in Quebec, but did nothing as thousands of Albertans lost their jobs.”

Safe insulin, food for all or a few?

If it’s unsafe, unhealthy

it’s unsafe, unhealthy

for everyone

not just for those who

can afford to pay extra

for safe, healthy

insulin, food and personal care products.

Subpar ingredients or

pesticide, herbicide

and/or additive ladened ingredients

are not frills.

Federal election ’19 primer: drag your feet & past the buck

Dealing with Beijing

“Beijing has detained Canadian citizens in retaliation for the arrest of Huawei’s CFO in Vancouver on a U.S. extradition bid.  We (Canada) should request the U.S. to either speed up its extradition of her or kidnap her.”

Liberals’ blame game

“With Mike Harris too far removed, Doug Ford has become the bogeyman and favourite whipping boy for the federal Liberals…”

Hospital health care?

You change floors four (4) times over the course of a one week stay.

You change hospitalists three (3) times during an eleven day stay.

First, you are told you may have a hard copy of your test results, then your request

is denied.

Castigate cell carriers

Cell carriers constantly consternate

cleverly concocting

complicated,

confusing,

coiled (a sign they may not want to abandon coiled phone cords!)

contacts (i.e., plans, agreements and schemes)

catapulting clients

ceaselessly into a

circuitous cavern.

Caveat emptor Canadians!

N.B. That’s why cell phone markets must be part of a US, Mexico, Canada FAIR trade deal!

Good neighbour?

You doubt mind when your dog(s) bark, yap, yelp or yip ever time your neighbour so much as opens their door or window.

Farting around with switching red & white health cards

When we started writing this post Ontario’s debt weighed in at:

$345,403,870,000.00

That’s

$23, 967.00

per Ontarian.

With this in mind, what makes more sense:

1) Ontario taxpayers’ dollars spent on farting around with switching red and white health cards, or

2) allow the attrition of these cards held by older people and people with disabilities?

The increase to Ontario’s debt of option 2:

$0.00

In the time it took to write this post Ontario’s debt increased by:

$90,000.00

Green

Nice colour.

It inspires calmness and growth.

It’s important to eat your greens.

Not so nice when “green” is tied to a political party.

The NDP appeasement of the three Greens elected to BC’s legislature lead to, as Ms. Holly Nicholas of Rebel.com put it, “knee capping the oil and gas industry and blocking the TransMountain pipeline.”

Wakie-wakie, PEI.

Are you aware of the damage that blocking the TransMountain pipeline did to Canada and its economic future?
