A Long Rusty Groove




A Long Rusty Groove



  I would like to say thank-you to Your Ward News fan of the month, Kelly Fairchild. Kelly is a local Artist and activist who donates ten percent of her art sales to charitable causes she believes in.
   Kelly has been a big help to our little paper this month by promoting our paper not only within our publishing area (where we distribute the paper for free) but well outside of it and even internationally! Because of a petition Kelly started, the hits on our web site and paid subscriptions from outside of our publishing area have skyrocketed. This is the petition that Kelly posted on change.org.


Canada Post
This is a formal Petition asking for you to discontinue delivering the hate-speech paper Your Ward News to the general population. 
Every month this paper is delivered to thousands of homes.  Every month this paper uses name-calling and false allegations as a way to bully people.  Every month this paper calls women sluts, whores, she-hags, bitches, cock-teasers, and femi-Marxists.  Dr. James Sears who runs the paper, regularly degrades women of various ethnicities (Asian, Jewish), by commenting on their sexuality (saying that “Jewesses” are frigid, but good at giving head).  He regularly posts photos of women in sexually degrading photo-shopped images. Images that should not be slipped into our mailboxes. 
These pages are filled with profanity, and slanderous comments about politicians and regular civilians.  These pages are filled with lies.  Lies about women, lies about feminists, lies about religions and races, lies about immigrants, lies about homosexuals, and lies about men who don’t believe that women should be submissive.  This paper spreads false allegations against female nurses, and false allegations against organizations that work to help women and children who are victims of violence.  Those who speak up against James Sears end up as targets in his paper, and are subjected to name-calling, personal insults and sexually degrading remarks and/or photo-shopped images. 
This paper is offensive and dangerous, and we should not be subjected to this trash invading our homes.   James Sears values “Freedom of Speech” above all, (above integrity, above humanity, above decency) and we wouldn’t dream of denying him this ‘right’, so we are simply asking Canada Post to discontinue delivering this paper, to those who don’t subscribe.   This “newspaper” offers no factual information, or constructive input.  It exists solely as a platform for those who wish to spread hate and misinformation.  Your Ward News is not a “newspaper”, it is propaganda that is meant to insult, and degrade those who are different than its editor James Sears.  Which is why we are asking that this paper not be delivered to unsubscribed homes.  
Those who subscribe to Sears’ distorted and harmful way of thinking should simply subscribe to his paper.  While this hate-speech paper should be shut down entirely, we will settle (for now), with Canada Post agreeing to discontinue delivering Your Ward News to non-subscribers.

   Of course Kelly had help from her friend Warren Kinsella and his collective in promoting this to the large numbers it received. Right away Kinsella tweeted and facebooked Kelly’s petition far and wide amongst his brain washed minions which made it such a success.
    The only problem is most of what Kelly says about us is just not true. For starters I don’t lie Kelly. I stand behind every word I have ever had published in this paper. Now it’s true my bat shit crazy editor James and our warped graphic artist Robert tend to put satirical pictures and outrageous by-lines to my work but I do have journalistic standards and I do not lie. Many of the stories in this paper are satirical in nature and outrageous in subject but that is opinion not hate. We openly denounce violence and injustice towards all people regardless of ethnicity or gender. That being said we also reserve the right to talk about these matters and believe that having the right to free speech to openly discuss matters of ethnicity and gender is a right to practice and defend.
     Here’s something you don’t have a right to Kelly, the right not be offended.  Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so too is “feeling offended” in the realm of the beholder. Words are words; each person is in charge of their own emotions. To blame us or anyone else because you feel angry, offended or upset shows an abandonment of responsibility and an utter lack of emotional maturity. Since when did people become such crybabies that we couldn’t stand hearing a certain word or phrase, being called a name, or tagged with a label?  
   When idiot box talking head Warren Kinsella or puppet politicians like Dimwit  Arthur Potts or Marxist Mary Margaret McMahon make public statements about us it has a profound effect on people. That’s why it’s fair game to talk about them.
     But it also does something else, for one thing it encourages that abandonment of responsibility and an utter lack of emotional maturity in people like you Kelly Fairchild. When somebody like Kinsella campaigns against us nonstop, calling us hateful, racist, Nazis and misogynists, it’s like he is taking a big rusty nail and scratching a grove in the minds of people. He’s coming to conclusion and judgement for you, he’s circumventing your critical thought process. Most of all he’s using you to shut down the voice of those who politically oppose him and his political friends who make a very good living off the backs of the public.
    Your needle gets stuck in a big rusty groove so you will have a knee jerk reaction to what? A small community paper that prints alternative news, politics, opinion and satire? This big rusty groove makes people who have never even seen our paper think it’s some kind of illegal hate speech Nazi rag. How do I know this is true? Below are just a few examples taken from the first couple of pages of responses to the petition.  

These people are not even Canadian who are signing this petition to Canada post! No link to the paper was published with the petition and these people have never seen the paper!

      Most of the people who signed this on line petition calling us Nazis and accusing us of spreading hate speech (which is illegal) have never seen the paper and have come to this conclusion because somebody told them it was so. If this paper were really hate speech I would be in prison or in court saying this instead of printing it and putting it in your mail box!
   Kelly it’s you who lie when you call opinion hate speech, you do so because you have had a groove scratched in your mind by a political philosophy that tells you that you are not responsible if you feel offended by those who you don’t agree with. They have tricked you into thinking that your free speech is not as important as somebody else’s feelings.
   Now here’s something else you and Warren will wrongly consider hate speech. If this paper or my words in it are offensive to you, TOO GOD DAMN BAD!

Elliott Not Guilty, FREE SPEECH 1 – MARXIST SHE HAGS 0





Elliott Not Guilty, FREE SPEECH 1 – MARXIST SHE HAGS 0

    On the morning of Friday Jan 22, I was waiting for a tweet from a friend of mine who was in a Toronto court room, waiting to find out if the Canadian court system would be standing up for freedom of speech on the internet in Canada or if they would be giving in to the femimarxist she hags that had arranged this farce to be brought into a criminal court in Toronto.
   In last month’s edition of this paper I brought you the story of Gregory Alan Elliott and the She Hags of Twitter. Elliott, a 54 year old graphic artist, was embroiled in a political disagreement with a gang of radical feminists on twitter over their treatment of a young game designer. At no time did Elliot ever threaten or sexually harass these women, he just strongly disagreed with their political tactics. In the end three of these woman convinced a Toronto cop (Who one of the women was close to) to charge Elliot with criminal harassment, a charge that carries up to four years in prison!
   The leader of these femimarxist hags was Steph Guthrie, the founder of a group called Witopoli or Women in Toronto Politics. This group has close ties to many of the radical far left female Toronto city councilors such as Kristyn Wong-Tam and Shelley Carroll who called on young women to “cyberbully” people.
    The women involved in the case, Steph Guthrie, Heather Reilly and a third woman whose allegations were dropped from the case when rumors started circulating that she was romantically involved with one arresting officer.
   This case is a shining example of how modern feminists and social justice warriors believe they not only have the right to control everybody’s speech but are more than willing to use force to push their far left radical political agenda right down your throat.
   Politics aside, Steph Guthrie is a particular type of vindictive psychopath. In November 2012, a few weeks before Elliott was charged with criminal harassment, Guthrie and others started spreading lies that Elliott was a Pedophile. Guthrie testified that she knew these rumours about Elliott propositioning an underage girl weren’t true, but neglected to tell Detective Banglid because “I wasn’t trying to harm him unduly, but I was not trying to help him.”
   Remember Guthrie's problem with Elliot started when he opposed her over her vindictive treatment of a young game designer, Ben Spurr. Guthrie accused Spurr of making a “misogynist” game and then proceeded to ( in her own words ) “sic the Internet on him” to convict “the fuck” in the court of public opinion. When Elliott’s defense asked Guthrie if she was concerned her attacks against Spurr could result in his being harmed, she unabashedly stated that she was “okay with that.” When the defense repeated the question, Guthrie once again made it very clear she believed he deserved whatever was coming to him.
   People close to Elliot describe him as an “Overly helpful” sort of guy, a really nice guy who will bend over backwards to help you out with whatever project you are working on. He is a prolific artist and poet with examples of his graphic art work all over Toronto. This father of four offered his services for free to Guthrie for her group. She repaid him for his offer by turning on him the first time he suggested that what she was engaging in was  “every bit as vicious as the face-punch game” Spurr had created.
   Guthrie and her coven of Marxist witches enthusiastically conspired to totally destroy Gregory Elliot’s life. With the help of the Toronto police dept., the crown prosecutor and the left controlled media that’s just what they did.
   Even though the Judge came out and said not guilty on Friday, Elliot still suffered greatly. The arrest and harsh bail conditions not only caused Elliot to lose his job, but the restriction on not being allowed to use the internet has not allowed him to work at all. Add to that the loss of his reputation and lies in the media and the humongous legal bills, it quickly becomes clear that these evil she hags of twitter are still giggling like the little bully’s in the schoolyard they are. They win this little game of “culture Marxist firing squad”. It never mattered to them weather Elliot was found guilty or not, only to everyone else in Canada.
   Sure freedom of speech was upheld in that court room, But Gregory Alan Elliott paid a very high price for it, Guthrie and her disgusting little friends now play the victim’s denied justice to their deluded SJW sycophant friends.
   So for all of you smug sjw butt holes out there who like Guthrie are laughing behind your hands thinking this is a win either way just remember. You have now tipped your hand. All Canadians can now see that that you just held a gun to all our heads (collectively speaking) threatening to kill freedom of speech for all, just to close down one voice that disagreed with your culturally Marxist agenda.
   As of deadline Steph Guthrie's group of radical femimarxists  Witopoli or Women in Toronto Politics still has made no mention at all of the victory of Gregory Alan Elliott. Not on Facebook, Twitter or their web page? Guthrie and her group of vindictive femimarxists has caused great harm to this man and his family and yet there's no acknowledgement, little lone an apology.

Le Papillon on the Park shuts down



Le Papillon on the Park shuts down

   In the seventeen years Abdul Malik worked for Le Papillon he made an amazing rise from dish washer to head chef in a in a highly rated fine dining restaurant (first at one location then in the spin off location) at Le Papillon on the Park. Most people who hold such a position study for years and work as sous-chef s and line cooks under Master chefs before attaining such a position as head chef for an establishment such as Le Papillon on the Park. To these Masters of the culinary arts their reputations and that of the fine dining establishments they work for is everything.
   It appears Malik had little respect for either his profession or the restaurant he worked in. In fact, due to his complaint with the Human rights tribunal of Ontario, I doubt he will ever work as head chef for such a place again. The 25 employees he put out of work are left wondering why they are looking for new jobs and the owner and his family have had their dream shattered because of this government’s kangaroo court that sided with Malik, his nephew and their friend when they decided to play the race card after years of employment.
   Paul Bigue originally founded Le Papillon with his friend Sandra Kane, and his brother Marc, opening Le Papillon in 1974 in the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. In 2008 the partners amicably split, with Kane re-opening Le Papillon on Front St. and Paul and his wife Danielle opening Le Papillon on the park. Abdul Malik chose to make the move to the new restaurant with Paul. The restaurant featured French Canadian cuisine with a special tourtiere recipe. It also had an open kitchen style floor plan where the kitchen is open and visible to the dining room. Malik made it clear he did not like it.
   The opening of the restaurant was a big success and the establishment quickly picked up a crowd of regular patrons both locally and far beyond. As time went on the only problem they seemed to have was a high turnover in the kitchen staff. After time the restaurant was a success and well received by critics, that is until Malik and his friends played the race card which generated press that killed the business. At this point cultural Marxism reared its ugly head. The ensuing press of the Human Rights Tribunal painted Malik and his friends as poor discriminated fellows who were being oppressed by a racist employer.
   Paul Bigue the owner of Le Papillon on the Park posted the following statement on his restaurant’s web site.

   On a Friday night in January 2011, our chef Abdul Malik (a 17 year employee), his nephew and sous-chef Arif Hossain (a 12 year employee), as well as a friend of theirs, Nahid Ashfaq Islam, marched out in rage and did not return because we required them to train a new female cook. Fortunately, we were able to retain a few chefs from a friend of ours and re-opened the next day until we found permanent replacements.
   In response, Mr. Malik went to the Ontario Labour Relations Board and filed a complaint of discrimination. The Board thoroughly investigated, found his accusations to be unjustified, and denied his claim.
   Not content to accept the judgment of the Labour Relations Board, the three individuals filed false claims of discrimination against my wife Danielle at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO), and asked for $100,000 in compensation. They received free advice from the Tribunal as well as free legal counsel. In other words, they had absolutely nothing to lose.
   Six months after our hearing and thirty one months after we were cleared by the Labour Board, Tribunal adjudicator Judith Keene found us guilty. Because the HRTO is not a court of law, there was no appeal process available to us. It is also famous for its 96% conviction rate. Devastated, we have taken our case to the Ontario Superior Court in order to reverse the HRTO decision.
Meanwhile, last December the Toronto Star wrote a one-sided story which perpetuated the falsehoods, harming our reputation and in turn impacting our business.
   It remains on the front page of Google search results six months later. Our sales this year have dropped by 20%, which, coupled with our lawyers fees (past and present) resulted in us not being able to discuss the case until it has gone to the Ontario Superior Court. We were advised that risking a PR blow-up on such a touchy subject could bankrupt us, so we kept our public reply short and formal even though it frustrated us enormously to do so.
We have operated restaurants in Toronto for more than 40 years with the utmost integrity. We have great respect for the men and women we have had the privilege of working with, and consider them members of our family. We will defend our reputation and refuse to allow a few misguided individuals to destroy our good name and a business that employs 25 (wonderful) people. 
   So after 17 years all of a sudden Malik realized he was being discriminated against and his employers were monstrous bigots!
   Part of the problem began when Nahid Islam joined the kitchen staff and the three started speaking Bengali in the kitchen which Danielle Bigue had a problem with and mentioned that for safety and in respect to other employees English should be spoken in the kitchen. Some of the other false claims made by the three to the HRTO was that observances for Ramadan were not respected and that one day in August 2010 he was told by his boss to taste the soup. Malik had made the soup the night before and felt he should not have to taste anything during his observances. He claimed that at first declined to taste the soup, but Ms Bigue told him that he should taste it and he was worried about being fired. He also claimed that on more than one occasion he was asked to taste a pulled pork sandwich that the owners wanted to add to the menu. Mr. Islam also testified that Ms Bigue told Islam that the tortière did not have enough flavour, and that he should taste it and tell her his opinion. Mr. Islam told Ms Bigue that he was prohibited from eating pork and that he was fasting. He indicated that Ms Bigue told him that “if you make food, you have to taste it”. 
   This brings up an interesting point here, I have spoken to many chefs and we have all seen at least one of the top chef type cooking shows that permeate the television these days. As a chef that prepares meals in a fine dining establishment you are expected to taste the food you prepare!
   A restaurant that features French Canadian cuisine is going to have pork on the menu! Here we have three people who claim to be professionals who also claim to have no need to ever taste the restaurants signature dish!
   From reading the transcript of the HRTO hearings it’s also clear that the management of Le Papillon on the park went out of their way to accommodate the three when it came to their religious practices.
   How is it that it took Malik 17 years (and Hossain 12 years) to come to the conclusion that their employers were racist and file a complaint first with the labour board and then with the HRTO? And why did this come to a head right when they were asked to train a female chef? A female chef who besides being a woman, probably took her chosen profession seriously.
   There is no appeal process for a ruling from the HRTO except to the Divisional court of Ontario and then only if the HRTO made a mistake in a legal ruling. Needless to say there was no reversal from the Divisional court, only more lawyer fees and court costs. The courts at this time ordered the restaurant to pay the three well over $100,000. Plus court costs within thirty days. Again from the Le Papillon on the Park web site.
UPDATE May 22, 2015: We lost our appeal at the Superior Court.
   The allegations were false and we were treated unjustly by the HRTO. Unfortunately, and to our surprise, there was no appeal process available. Our only recourse was to take this case to the Divisional Court not for retrial, but for review. In other words they had to figure out whether or not the HRTO had made a legal mistake in their decision. We suppose they did what they could. Had we the option to retry the case, we would have won.
   This case has ruined our reputation and our health. Our standards and integrity are what have kept us in business for 40 years in this city, and to have the public believe that we discriminated against our staff was a huge personal blow that we haven’t been able to recover from. Patrons that dined with us for years stopped coming overnight, we received menacing calls and emails and we continue to read hateful comments about our family and business online. This has been devastating and extremely frustrating.
   We’ve come to learn that the HRTO has a very high conviction rate and no appeal process. We made the mistake of wearing the truth like our shield and didn’t represent ourselves properly. The public, especially small business owners like us, need to know that there are misguided individuals that are profiting from the free legal counsel and systems that were put into place to protect those who actually need it. This is really happening. As soon as our story made it into the press in December 2013, we received dozens of calls and emails from business owners that were wrongfully convicted on discrimination charges at the HRTO and lost their businesses. People were furious, and their stories were horrible. It’s extremely disheartening to be added to that list.
   This has been the most difficult thing we’ve ever faced as a business, and above all as a family. I suppose our greatest mistake was that we were naive enough to think that justice would prevail and it did not.
    No small business can take a financial blow like the one imposed by the HRTO and survive. Few businesses can field a barrage of political correctness from the red press, especially when that press is a bunch of one sided lies from immigrants playing the race card.
   So now Le Papillon on the Park is closed with a For Sale sign on it. The building has been remortgaged (most likely to pay off the fines and court costs) 25 people are looking for new jobs and a family is ruined.
   But Malik, his nephew and their friend have hit the jackpot. They are now free to take their windfall and go open a shawarma hut somewhere. I doubt the Toronto Star food critic will ever review the place but I somehow don’t think they will care.

Gregory and the She Hags of Twitter

Gregory and the She Hags of Twitter


  Freedom of speech has been on trial in a Toronto courtroom and the verdict comes down on Jan 22. This story involves a 54 year old graphic artist named Gregory Alan Elliott and two militant feminazis named Steph Guthrie and Heather Reilly. (There was a third woman who dropped out)
   It all started when this group of self-important feminazi she hags got together on twitter and started hatching out a plan to ruin a man’s life. Their target was a young game designer who had made a game that spoofed a famous feminazi video blogger named Anita Sarkeesian. Guthrie Tweeted that she wanted the inventor’s “hatred on the Internet to impact his real-life experience” So she Tweeted to prospective employers to warn them off the young man and even sent the local newspaper in his town a link to the story about the game.
   The evil practice of publicly shaming and attempting to destroy the reputation of anybody who opposes the Marxist left has been a tactic that has been used for some time by radical feminists and social justice warriors.
   Gregory Elliott disagreed with the tactic and Tweeted that he thought the shaming “was every bit as vicious as the face-punch game” that the young man had created. He suggested to Guthrie that if the young man ended up killing himself that would not look good on her or her organization. And this is where it gets bizarre; Up to that point the two were getting along fine online, Elliott even offered to produce a free poster for Guthrie’s witopoli (Women in Toronto Politics) group. But now they turned on him, Guthrie was not happy just labeling him a Troll and blocking his tweets, She demanded that he cease even referring to them when making comments about heated political issues. After thousands of tweets, from Elliott and the group of left-tard feminazis that Steph Guthrie was conspiring with, in 2012 Gregory Elliott was charged with criminally harassing first Guthrie, then Reilly and another woman who withdrew her charge. At no time did Elliott ever come close to threatening or sexually harassing any of these women. He just disagreed with their political tactics publicly.
   After spending three days in jail Elliott came up for bail. The crown actually tried to have him detained until trial, he was granted bail but with the condition that he was banned from using the internet. Being a graphic artist and depending on the internet of course he lost his job as well. Three years latter this un-employed father with a wopping legal bill waits on a justice system to decide whether to send him to jail or not for up to six months because he opposed a handful of feminazi political wannabe’s on Twitter.
   Once again at no time did Elliott ever threaten or sexually harass these women, He just strongly disagreed with them on twitter. Their claim is that his disagreement made them feel unsafe and they felt stalked because he would comment on what they were doing politically.
   This is not a joke or satire folks, this is really happening!
   The real victim here is Gregory Alan Elliott who has suffered greatly at the hands of these evil she devil social justice warriors. He has endured public false allegations of being a pedophile, made unemployable by harsh bail conditions and the mob mentality of the left and even had an art exhibit put on by a restaurateur in Kensington Market to help pay the legal fees vandalized. That’s right they sought out this restaurant that was hanging Elliott’s work and threw coffee on it while publicly denouncing him.
   So for giving his opinion on Twitter over a political matter this man has faced public shaming, false allegations, lost his job, had his art exhibit vandalized, had criminal harassment charges laid and faces six months in jail.
   So who is this evil feminazi she devil Steph Guthrie who seems to be the ring leader in all this you ask? Well oddly enough when I was discussing this story at the newspaper office "Canada's #1 seduction guru, Dimitri The Lover" pipped up with his own personal story about she hag Steph Guthrie…
    A few years ago I positioned myself down the street from Robarts Library to pick up U of T broads.  A gal in horn-rimmed glasses leered at me as she walked by.  She looked like Luann Van Houten from The Simpsons, but dirtier and slightly more pear-shaped.  I got a thing for geeky broads.  I normally would have accosted her with one of my patented pickup lines, but my gut told me she had a nefarious purpose.  She was giving off a sinister, creepy, vile vibe.  I felt like I was being baited, so I resisted the temptation.
   But she did not give up.  She walked by me a second time, closer and with a more obvious leer.  Again I ignored her.  She tried a third time, even more overtly, and I again ignored her.  Then in frustration she burst out "I KNOW WHO YOU ARE!" and laid into me about me being a "misogynist" (she obviously read some of my online posts on seduction).
   She was angry and irrational, so I went into "psychiatrist talking down menopausal dyke hostage taker" mode, and calmly suggested that if she disagreed with my opinions, we go for a coffee, my treat, and have a polite, friendly debate.  My calm, rational male demeanor caused her to physically freeze with a dropped jaw.  A couple of seconds later she said in a defeatist tone "What's the point?  You're always right!" then scurried off like a cockroach.
   After our encounter I felt sorry for her.  I assumed her father or another male relative/friend molested her, and she felt bitter toward men.  She likely used the "What's the point?" line in arguments with him.  I hypothesized she enjoyed being slapped across the face, roughed up, and sexually ravaged after provoking a man (a lot of women do).  The right man had not yet domesticated this feral shrew.  Then several months later I learned she was FemiMarxist CUNT Steph Guthrie.  She started following me on Twitter and employed similar baiting techniques on other men online.
   I don’t know if the account of Dimitri The Lover has much to do with this story but it’s good for a laugh and if it gets under the skin of this warped hag with a penchant for ruining a man’s life and livelihood because she thinks her point of view is more important than anybody else’s, well good. People like her and the wing nuts of the left that have been pushing cultural Marxism and radical feminism down the throats of the rest of us are dangerous people. This case makes it perfectly clear that they wish to curtail free speech for anybody that disagrees with them.
   This is a dangerous time for Canada, if we allow these warped leftists to use the court system to jail and remove the free speech of Gregory Alan Elliott then we are truly lost as a nation.

Sale of Hydro One is corruption on a Grand Scale and We All Know It!

Sale of Hydro One is corruption on a Grand Scale and We All Know It!


  On Saturday, December 12, there was a protest outside of the office of Beaches-East York MPP Arthur Potts.

   The protest seemed to be organized by unions and supporters for their usual reasons, but for once it’s hard not to agree with them. The selloff of Hydro One is wrong for so many very good reasons it’s hard not to view this move by Ontario’s Liberal Government as anything short of criminal.
   For decades we have watched the World Bank and the IMF lend small countries large amounts of money, only to swoop in like vultures when the loans could not be repaid because El Presidente and the boys got it all. In picking the carcass clean the first thing the bankers usually do is turn the utilities (such as electricity, water and gas) over to corporate control. In Ontario nothing so drastic need take place, they need only tell their puppet Kathleen Wynne to dance.
    In all fairness Kathleen Wynne is not alone in this criminal activity, her predecessor Dalton McGuinty also needs to be charged in this case as well. In fact as I write this article McGuinty’s chief of staff and his second banana have just been charged criminally in deleting e-mail that would have surly secured Dalton and Kathleen a place in Canada’s correctional system.
    The way the energy portfolio has been buggered up under the Liberal government in Ontario goes way beyond the incompetent well into the realm of criminal malfeasance. The Gas energy plant cancelations alone cost us well over a billion dollars which the liberals tried to hide, add to that the cost of the green energy initiative, power that’s costing us more to produce than it’s worth, which we then sell at less than cost to the grid and the rising cost of this incredibly stupid plan just keeps rising.
    It’s clear that the end game in this corruption is the fire sale of Hydro One to the corporate banking interests that our leaders really work for.            
   Not only has the government allowed the people of Ontario to be gouged on the cost of electricity for years, while the corporate board of hydro overpaid themselves, they have lost money on bad investments and planning and passed that debt off to the rate payers.
    Over this time large business in manufacturing has fled the province (and the country) due to the high electricity costs.
   And just who is benefiting here? The Royal Bank of Canada and Bank of Nova Scotia, which are acting as underwriters in the utility’s public debut, also have an option to purchase an additional 8.15 million shares, which would bring proceeds from the IPO to a total of $1.83 billion. On top of that another roughly $5 billion of that total would go towards paying down (interest on) the utility’s debt…..In other words the bankers are busting us up. Kathleen Wynne and Dalton McGuinty consider themselves too high up in the food chain to ever be held accountable and will be rewarded by the private sector in the end. It reminds me of an episode of The Sopranos.
    Current family Capo, Kathleen Wynne has plans to use what’s left to fund the party’s next capper, a ten year, $130-billion transit and infrastructure plan.
    In an honest World, That transit and infrastructure plan would be financed by a no interest loan from the Bank of Canada the way the system was designed to work.
   In an honest world, instead of selling off Hydro One the government would take full control, cut costs by giving electricity away free. That’s right free. You would cut costs by getting rid of management, billing, meters and meter reading.(Not to mention stupid advertising costs) Generate much, much more in business and jobs that would return to Ontario for the free energy. Lead the boom in the auto sector by manufacturing electric cars that you just painlessly made a huge market for. Remember this is expensive electric power that we generate anyway and sell to the grid at a loss. This would even keep the fraudulent climate freaks happy.
    In an honest World, We would have a government that was not bought, paid for and in the pocket of the private banking system. We would have a system where the creation of money and the financing of public infrastructure (Like Hydro) is done in the open, though a publicly owned bank, the BOC. And we could do this without changing one law that we don’t already have on the books. This was how the System was originally designed before Don (Lucky Pierre) Trudeau Sr. Was the “Head of the families”.
   In an honest World, Kathleen Wynne and Dalton McGuinty would be charged with and stand trial for corruption and public malfeasance. The very crimes they have committed in the Real World.

25,000 and counting…






25,000 and counting…

When P.M. wannabe Justin Trudeau promised to bring in 25,000 Syrian refugees if elected he was bolstered by a Main stream media narrative, a staged photo of a dead baby face down on the beach in Greece. Mass immigration has always been a cornerstone of the Liberals it helps them get elected over and over, it wins them support from leftist Marxists, anarchists and extremists like “No one is illegal

    The problem is when the media started showing this mass exodus of so called Syrian refugees, people started seeing it for what it really was, an invasion. This wave of humanity pouring into Europe appeared to be 90% of young men of fighting age. Not only were only 10% women and children but it was also clear these were not all Syrians?  This wave of fighting age men were from a hodgepodge of middle eastern countries and they had attitude and a plan. This migration was heading straight to the promise land of Germany, They had no interest in their poor countries of passage like Greece or the old eastern bloc countries. This wave of so called refugees were heading straight to money town.

    Now before we get to what happened in Paris or Justin trying to save face in this ever changing shit storm that is world politics let’s look at what’s been really going on as far as Muslim immigration in France, England and Germany. TOO MUCH AND TOO FAST. There are Muslim enclaves in all of these countries where the native host countries are not permitted or welcome. To say that over the last twenty years these western European countries have been swamped and invaded by Muslims would not be an understatement at all.

   What happened in Paris was more than just a violent terrorist act, it was the first volley of a civil war that will engulf those countries. cultural genocide is not a pretty thing to witness.

   Now I’m not saying all Muslims want to take over or are evil people, they have been displaced or shall we say moved like pieces on a chess board. You don’t need to own a tin foil hat to realize that there are many industries that profit from conflict. One story across my desk was about ISIS Terrorists Driving Toyota Pickup Trucks, the companies that make the ak47’s and ammunition must be making a killing. Shoulder rockets and land mines of all sorts, all legally being traded on stock exchanges worldwide when we should be treating these merchants of death like we do meth labs.

   Call it a racist viewpoint if you will but at some point we have to turn the immigration tap down, to do that we have to reign in the military complex as well as the military itself. And of course at the end of the day the bankers.

  So where does that leave us? How does Paris and the German flood affect us? Well pandering Justin T has no choice but to follow through with his 25,000 to save face and not look like the shmuck that doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing. Of the 25,000 the government says it will bring into Canada by Jan. 1, some 10,000 are expected to land in Ontario, mostly in the GTA, Now that the emotional wave that the media pushed with the dead child is starting to ebb people are starting to think this promise though in a rational way, the realization that these people will need medical care and housing is a problem the people of Toronto will have to deal with and pay for.

    It’s likely that most will actually be from Syria and if Justin is smart he will make most of them women, children and families. Though most of the refugees are single men there is no way the liberal government can screen these men in time for Jan 1 to ensure they are not a security risk, so most likely he will select mostly women and children and forgo most of the security screening.  Estimates on the cost of this according to Canadian Press are $876.7 million in this year alone, largely due to the cost of the airlift, and perhaps $1.2 billion over six years.  It also appears that Premier Kathleen Wynne will be putting the needs of these refugees ahead of the people on disability and old age pension who can’t find affordable housing or have access to doctors.

    Justin Trudeau has made this generous gesture of accepting 25,000 Syrian refugees but it’s your tax money that will support these people, your children that will have to make room in their schools, Your health care system that will have to treat and look after them and your taxes that will be going up. The 10,000 that will land in the GTA over the next few weeks will be bringing third world problems to our door step and it’s you, not Justin who will have to deal with this.

What democracy???





What democracy???

   Many people hold the false belief that here in Canada we are living in a democracy. That has not been true for some time now, Yes we have elections that give the illusion of a democratic system but the choices we are given and the system that controls those choices are in no way, shape or form democratic.
   Since the Liberal government of 74 when Canada turned over the control of our financial system to the private banking cartels we have been in fact living in a fascist corporatocracy. This is not my opinion. This concept has been clearly defined by economists and political scientists. So let’s be honest when we throw around words like democracy because that's not what we have here in Canada.
   Our government in Canada consists of a closed group of people who drift in and out of public service and are otherwise employed as corporate or academic elite when not in or voted out of public service.
   The three large political parties in Canada are funded by these same banking interests, corporations and unions. These are the same groups that employ the people who run for office. This is not some conspiracy theory or secret. For example almost every Prime Minister, premier and many of the key Cabinet Minsters we have had over the last 50 years all were employed or had direct connections to the Desmarais family and their large family firm Power Corp.  Pierre Trudeau and René Lévesque were both members of the Communist party before they started working for Power Corp., Paul Martin got his shipping company off Power Corp., Jean Chrétien’s daughter married right into the Desmarais family and Brian Mulroney upon leaving office moved right into the board of directors for Power Corp.
    Not only are the players selected and groomed for public office but the way the three main political parties are funded is murky at best and downright criminal in practice. One need look no further than the current scandal’s in Ottawa involving Senator Mike Duffy or the NDP giving tax funded office space to union fund raisers’ to realize the big three’s funding practices flaunt the laws in place and yet no one is ever charged or arrested? The parties are given a pass while individual’s get hand slaps. There’s been more than one story about corporate board members walking though the office distributing cheques to employees with the understanding that they were meant for tax deductible donations for specific campaign’s or parties. From what I’ve been led to believe this has become standard practice now.
   Part of this control of our political system is the influence of the corporate media over our electoral system. The founding fathers of confederation realized the influence that media had over the electoral process. Even though at the time media only consisted of newspapers. Still laws were put into place to strictly control media ownership. Over the years with the event of radio and television these media ownership laws were expanded to include these new forms of communication. The idea behind these media ownership laws were to ensure that control of the media rested in the hands of as many people as possible. Starting in the 80’s under Mulroney these media ownership laws were whittled down, and changed depending on which corporate conglomerate was making moves on what sector.
 Between 1990 and 2005 there were a number of media corporate mergers and takeovers in Canada. For example, in 1990, 17.3% of daily newspapers were independently owned; whereas in 2005, 1% were. These changes, among others, caused the Senate Standing Committee on Transport and Communications to launch a study of Canadian news media in March 2003. (This topic had been examined twice in the past, by the Davey Commission (1970) and the Kent Commission (1981), both of which produced recommendations that were never implemented in any meaningful way.

   The point being with a controlled news media the public is very seldom informed of the smaller (Fringe) parties and independent candidates, even when they do clear the hurdles and independently come up with the financing required to even get on the ballot.
     And of course the big lie that is whispered at election time that if you do vote for a fringe party or independent you are “Wasting your vote”.
    It also goes without saying that this control also dictates subject, policy and issues discussed during elections so that subjects important to most Canadians such as banking policy, immigration or foreign aid are never discussed or brought to light in the body politic.
   And of course there is the one thing that is talked about which is the  "First past the post" system.  In each electoral district or riding, the candidate with the most number of votes in an election wins a seat in the House of Commons, or the legislative assembly in provincial and territorial elections. The leader of the party which wins the highest number or seats, rather than the party with the highest percentage of the overall vote is asked to form the government. Although first past the post is talked about, the winners of the elections seem to forget all about their objections to this system when they win.
   With the system and media rigged to ensure that only the big three corporate controlled parties will ever attain and forever hold on to power in Canadian politics it’s no wonder at all that the public has become jaded to the system and for the most part given up on voting and participating in the political system. Voter turnout in Canada now averages around 60% and has been dropping steadily. The last federal by-election I worked on it was 47% that means less than half the people who could vote did !
    If Canada is ever to regain a democratic form of government a number of things need to happen. First Canada needs to return the issuance of currency to the public (The Bank of Canada, which we own) and away from the private banking cartels. Who use this wealth to control the people and the government though debt. Second a large percentage of Canadian citizens have to care enough to get involved in the political process. Not only in terms of voting but also in joining and running of political parties. We need to demand honesty and transparency in government and get it! Not just promises. Lastly we need to install a system of accountability.
    Regaining democracy in Canada is a huge undertaking. It requires a lot of work by a lot of people. Until you are ready to do your part don’t speak to me of democracy in Canada because that’s not what we have.
