On May 15, 1911, the US Supreme Court ruled that Standard Oil was an “unreasonable” monopoly under the Sherman Antitrust Act. It ordered Standard to break up into 34 independent companies.
Mr. Dave Hodges and Dr. Michael Savage muse that Amazon, Facebook and Google are the “Standard Oils” of today and ask the question: Is it time to break them up?
It appears some MPPs, such as Dr. Eric Hoskins, are unaware that the 41st Legislative Assembly of Ontario is still very much alive and kicking. You constituents who put your MPP in their seat have an unwritten contract with that MPP. It states that he or she is elected to serve the full term, unless health reasons make this impossible.
Did Dr. Hoskins ask his St. Paul’s constituents if they would accept his resignation?
Have you checked your phone bill lately?
Have you checked if they got the taxes right?
It maybe a herculean tax task for your phone company if you use a third-party long distance provider. The taxes maybe too rich by two, three, five or more cents. Hmm, how many accountants and MBAs do they employ? You can contact customer service if you enjoy the bouncing life of a volleyball, with no positive result. You can pay the correct amount and ignore late payment fees on the tax you don’t owe and pray the phone gods will knock some sense into your phone company.
If they aren’t your favourite, it’s time to say good-bye.
Does Canada’s NAF*TA 2.0 Wish List (we haven’t seen the list, have you seen the list? there is a list, right?) includes access to all North American companies, then we may say toodaloo monopolizers.
Oh, here’s another one.
- Two phone landlines in a home.
- One is touch-tone.
- One is pulse dial.
- The once less costly pulse dial line is now the same cost as the touch-tone.
- The provider never alerted the customer when this occurred.
- The provider has yet to suggest switching the dial line to tone.
*F stands for FAIR
Why? To send a message to the political class that seeks to change the lyrics of the Canadian National Anthem:
a Canadian does not dishonour the SONS who died horrific deaths on the front lines of WWI
a Canadian does not support revisionist wacko thinking; note: Sir John A. MacDonald, Canada’s first Prime Minister, and Halifax founder Lieutenant General Edward Cornwallis earned their place in history (warts and all) whether we are fond of them or not
a Canadian does not support government’s lack of focus on the priorities of today, e.g., bureaucratic bloat

100 prominent French women, including Catherine Deneuve, signed an open letter to Le Monde denouncing puritanical wave of #MeToo.
“Insistent or awkward come-ons aren’t a crime,” the letter said. “This fever for sending ‘pigs’ to the abattoir, far from helping empower women, in reality serves the interests of the enemies of sexual liberation.”
