Rumours… Large Blocks Of Pan-Am Tickets Bought By “Ontario Social Services” To Pad Attendance

“FYI I have first-hand confirmation that at least one government “social services” organization “purchased” a large block of tickets, to give away to other government “social services” organizations, to give away in order to paper the venues with summer camp kids & assorted government dependents. Can’t reveal my source and don’t tie it back to me. I found out about this through my employer.”

That’s the message I received, I can’t confirm it but given the Wynne Government’s record of brazen deceit I would not be surprised.

    Cue Captain Renault!

    The provincial Liberals don’t want ill informed voters to realizea this overhyped sports event is a huge boondoggle and (another) massive waste of tax dollars.

    • Me Too;)

    • David Murrell

      LauraS, you beat me to this joke! Shocked, we are all shocked!

      • LauraS

        I’ll let you get the next one, David Murrell. 🙂 Sadly, I’m sure the Wynne Liberals will provide ample opportunity to roll our our friend Captain Renault!

      I think I’m having a heart attack. My thoughts of Wynnes government have been ruined by this news.

        Don’t panic! I’m sure the eHealth team can send an Ornge helicopter to help you! #NoScandalsHere

    Well it’s not like anyone with a working brain would be surprised by this.

    • David Murrell

      Yes but hard evidence is needed. But eve then, the corrupt pro-Wynne media cartel would censor this story, even if the evidence was overwhelming.

  • David Murrell

    Here is where enterprising conservatives should do some digging. If anyone has some free time, one could just mosey on down to some of the more ill-attended venues (women’s shot put, anybody?) and see what’s what.

    • I am betting this is not a rumour…

      • David Murrell

        So am I. One route one could take is to do a Freedom of Information request, to certain Ontario departments, to see how much was spent on tickets, and how many were bought. Generally all governments MUST answer FOI requests having to do with money or contracts.

        The only problem is is that FOI requests take months, and any honest answer will be too late. The Pan Am Games will be gone, and the corrupt Wynne administration will have milked all the patronage, pork-barreling and propaganda value from our establishment media

        • True but if you don’t do it who will?

          • David Murrell

            I will see what I can do.

    crooked liberals wasting our money to pay for their crony appointees riding on this gravy train

    it is almost a 100% surety, during our olympics there was a scandal about political suits grabbing free tickets to sold out events, it was straightened out after an out cry, but you can be sure no political figure or their dependants will be paying for any tickets to any event. the next stage is force the deserving poor to sit through an event in order to score a bowl of soup and a day old bun.

    • If this report is accurate they bought many more tickets than for friends & family of Public Service Union members, its for the hoods.

      • ntt1

        Its kind of like a vanity press author buying up all the remainder bin offerings but using your money, There is always the 401 west.

  • I knew that a faggy hedgehog can’t sell John Tory’s Pan-Am-ania tickets – only the real butch of Queen’s Park could handle that (with our money).

    @ BCF!! Remeber that Muay Thai champ that joined ISIS? Well apparently he’s with his virgins now.

    I know this is un-related but I didn’t know how to get a hold of you. Assuming it was of any interest at all.

  • Canadian Born

    Totally, totally believable and yet the people of Ontario sit by and do nothing. That woman and I use the term loosely is going to set taxpayers back billions of dollars and nothing to show for it. At least I didn’t vote for this yet still have to pay for it.

  • Yo Mama

    They may give away the tickets away to those who live off of government benefits and the homeless but if they expect most of them to show up they better offer them free cigarettes and free TTC tokens (some of them counterfeit tokens) like groups like OCAP does to get people to show up to their protests and union picket lines!

    The rent seekers can’t move any more tickets through the usual fakery after all we have done for them?
    That’s not good.
