Canada is a country of heinous crimes of grief and mourning, a land of human misery without any hope. An ocean of human tragedy, that their fierce waves drag millions of shattered lives. Nadir Siguencia

Crimes...crimes... and crimes...Mrs. Kathleen Wynne?

Please; Candice Malcolm. The people of this province are more realistic when we have to participate in the custom criminal pleas, with our wishes for better governance and a rational administration of provincial funds. Yes, Mrs. Kathleen Wynne she has full knowledge of the tyrannies committed in this province by the previous provincial governments; especially in the annihilation of poor families, persecution of people belonging to the minorities, and the mistreatment of injured workers as the mental torture inflicted by the workers of the system of Compensation. Again in the province we have other liberal ruler, she is bringing the same agenda plotted by their previous predecessors? The premier of Ontario, Mrs. Kathleen Wynne, she must know that she has  to govern with justice, revise and denounce  the criminal acts committed with provincial money, by the provincial and private institutions.                                         First posted: Sunday, December 28, 2014 05:48 PM EST Opinion Columnists


Twelve sour grapes for Premier Wynne

There’s an old Spanish tradition on New Year’s Eve to eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight, making a wish for each grape.
The 12 grapes represent the 12 months of the year.
Each grape is thought to bring good luck and fortune for the coming year.
The tradition is still celebrated throughout the Spanish-speaking world, including Mexico, where many Canadians find refuge from the cold winter during this holiday season.
So, to any Ontarians participating in this custom, here is a plea to wish for better governance in 2015. In case you’d like to be a bit more specific, here are 12 Ontario taxpayer wishes for 2015.
1. No new taxes
The Kathleen Wynne Liberal government continues to emphasize the need for new taxes, but Ontario taxpayers know better. New taxes will merely enable more spending. By taking more from hardworking Ontarians, the government will just create more budget problems for households across the province.
2. Get to the bottom of the gas plants fiasco
It’s been over three years, and we are still learning the sordid details surrounding the 2011 election decision to cancel two gas plants to save some Liberal seats. The latest — deleting computer hard drives in the premier’s office at a cost of $10,000 to taxpayers — demonstrates the need for a judicial inquiry into this dubious scheme and elaborate cover-up. Typically, only after the expenditure was exposed did the Liberals belatedly decide to pay it back from party funds.
3. Accountability for all involved
Uncovering the details of the gas plant mess should lead to accountability for former premier Dalton McGuinty and his staff who presided over it. In a just world, someone would be facing punishment.
4. End the government liquor monopoly
Ontarians are capable of making responsible choices without the government controlling where and when we can buy booze.
5. Break up the Beer Store
While throwing out the archaic, prohibition-era Liquor Control Board, it’s also time for Ontario to do away with its bizarre, government-granted beer monopoly.
6. Scrap the Green Energy Act (GEA)
Ontario’s GEA has been a disaster. Enough is enough. Hydro ratepayers can’t afford to be the guinea pig for expensive experiments with inefficient, unreliable energy.
7. Cancel new wind and solar projects
Recent hydro rate increases are largely caused by the Global Adjustment which offsets and subsidizes hare-brained schemes like wind and solar farms.
8. Say no to carbon taxes
Wynne wants even more green schemes, including a possible carbon tax. This is merely an excuse for another massive Liberal tax grab.
9. Stop blaming the feds
Now that Stephen Harper’s Conservative government has confirmed Ontario’s equalization transfers are exactly what the formula calls for, there is no reason for Wynne to cry foul or blame the feds for her fiscal follies.
10. Ax the travel tax
Pearson Airport is already one of the most expensive in the world. Wynne’s new travel tax will more than triple jet fuel taxes, making it even more expensive to fly.
11. Freeze the sunshine list
The only way to balance the books in Ontario is by reining in spending. The number one expense at Queen’s Park is government employee compensation; a good place to start.
12. Balance the budget
All we really want for 2015 is a balanced budget in Ontario.
Happy New Year Ontario taxpayers; here’s to hope!
