Vilification of Tim Hortons and Ontario Small Businesses another bleak sign Canada is in a slow lockstep march towards socialistic collapse

Leave it to the premier of Ontario and Canada’s state broadcaster to stoke anti-business ire by using Canada’s once-beloved homegrown coffee chain as their scapegoat.

After Premier Kathleen Wynne rammed through new legislation hiking the minimum wage by 21 per cent at the start of 2018, without conducting any impact assessment and going against her old pledge to not raise it above inflation and giving only six-months notice, the CBC had the perfect news report to whip up proletarian anger at the business community, which would deflect blame from the unpopular Liberal premier.

    And yet she’ll likely still get in. She has Toronto and a majority of the voting block on the government dime. I doubt many are willing to vote against their own interests.

    Shame and bullying Tim Horton coffee shops, right. Canadians need to bully and shame this he/she, for her how much she got in raises over the last three years? What’s the saying, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. No insult intended for the goose or the gander. This witch has got to go.

    Just think of all the civil servants she could hire, if they took over the Tim Horton’s chain. They could rename it Justin Trudeau Donuts to help her win the next election.

      And Tim Bits could become Justin Holes!

  • Perhaps if these nay-sayers could explain how payrolls work, that would be great.

    The Elephant Man called, he wants his face back.

      Good thing he’s dead or he would be crushed to be compared to The Hag.

    Nothing slow about it — it is a race at break-neck speed.

    We will go down in future history books as a prime example of how a free and prosperous society devolved into a corrupt tyranny of socialism seemingly overnight.

    (Of course this state didn’t happen overnight — it has been decade in the making)

    • Ontario used to be a nice place.

        Its Harper’s fault.

    Meanwhile the unbiased Toronto Star has a story by Bob Hepburn, that explains that Wynne’s unpopularity is because she is a woman. Yes, it has nothing to do with anything else, its just that men are sexist pigs in Ontario. Heather Mallick also has a story, but I haven’t read it yet because I’m about to have supper and don’t want to puke on the cat.

      Bob H, Heather Malice, Westinghouse, Black & Decker.
      All zombie brands now. Of course the last two had much further to fall.

    That depends on your definition of “slow”.

    O/T – A big shout out to the Hamilton, ON crowd who gave Trudope a standing ovation on his answer to why Omar Khadr deserved to be paid $10.5 million. Thanks so much ON. /s

      As Trudeau explained, its all Hitler Harper’s fault.

    • OMG!

    • It actually didn’t go as well as people think.

      Who applauded? Some stupid teen-agers in the back. No one vetted the woman who asked him the question that haunts his career.

  • moraywatson

    She used the Green Energy Act to ram unwanted wind turbines down the throats of rural Ontario (and continues to do so), giving municipalities no choice in the process, and she has the gall to call others bullies?!!!!

    The abc’s of Kathleen Wynne: asshole, bitch and cunt.
