Another Casualty of Plant Closures in Ontario

Pepper and Sammy are paid by the taxpayers of Ontario in room, board and veterinary care. These “mice-control technicians,” as one bureaucrat called them, are the reason there is no rodent problem at the Ontario Tree Seed Plant in Angus, Ont., about 120 kilometres north of Toronto.

The cats are soon to be fired, however. The government will shutter the plant next September.

Brown’s plan to beat Wynne? Be Wynne

Over the weekend, Patrick Brown, leader of the PC Party of Ontario, came up with a promise for everybody.

There were 147 promises, to be exact.

You get a promise and you get a promise and you get a promise.


For an alternative view see… BONOKOSKI: Brown pitches the antidote to the Liberals’ Kool-Aid

I am tired of being to hold my nose and vote for a compromise candidate, and Brown frankly doesn’t even qualify as such, he is the bastard offspring of Wynne and McGuinty.

Ontario lost up to $1.2 billion selling clean energy: engineers

Ontario lost between $732 million and $1.25 billion over the past two years selling surplus clean electricity outside the province, an analysis by the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) estimates.

That’s the difference between what Ontario agreed to pay to produce nuclear, water, wind and solar power, and the bargain basement price it sold it for on the international market.

Back to work legislation in Ontario college strike expected to pass today

Ontario’s legislature is expected to pass a bill today that would force striking faculty at the province’s colleges to return to work.

The governing Liberals have made slow progress in pushing through their back-to-work bill because the New Democrats have refused to agree to speedy passage.

Fire every striking teacher and strip them of their teaching credentials.

BONOKOSKI: Muzzling of Ontario’s political attack dogs only days away

There is a double-edged sword when it comes to third-party attack ads during election campaigns in Ontario.

Partisan politicos love them when their arch rivals are being cut to shreds, but equally hate them when their own party is being sliced and diced.

And it is not exactly small change being thrown around.

Laws limiting fundamental freedom of protest at Ontario abortion clinics receive all-party support

All fundamentalisms have a totalitarian impulse, and secular fundamentalism is not immune. Canada has its share of secular fundamentalists infected with that impulse.

Much attention has been given to the face-covering law passed last week in Quebec. This week, Ontario will pass a law limiting protests against abortion that merits similar attention. In both cases, disproportionate measures are employed to limit freedoms, not to address a pressing public policy issue but as a form of official denunciation, backed by the fierce power of state coercion. One of the signs that totalitarian winds are blowing is when political dissent disappears, with the opposition parties in full cahoots with the government.

Wynne Liberals broke every rule in the book

Normally, Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk’s complete evisceration of how Premier Kathleen Wynne plans to pay for her “Fair Hydro Plan” would be an election game changer.

That is, the final nail in the coffin of the Wynne government’s financial credibility, leading to its defeat at the polls in June.

Lysyk’s findings, released Tuesday, are devastating for the Liberals.
