Premier Kathleen Wynne’s brother-in-law has been named the interim chief executive of e-Health Ontario, a move that raised the hackles of New Democrats at Queen’s Par.

Folks, after everything that has happened to the Liberals in Ontario, this sort of thing does not surprise me!

It doesn’t matter what the circumstances are: It doesn’t matter that he was already eHealth’s general counsel for four years, (He was given the role in a unanimous vote of the agency’s board of directors after interim CEO Ray Hession stepped aside to take care of his ill wife, eHealth spokesman Rob Mitchell said Tuesday.) and it doesn’t matter that he is well qualified for the job ………, what matters is that he is Kathleen Wynne’s brother-in-law

Even a hint of nepotism should be anathema to the Liberals after all the scandals they have endured, and if the Premier doesn’t realize this, or just doesn’t care………………….., she shouldn’t be Premier of Ontario.

End of story!


HEY FOLKS, it’s another “two for One” day for our “Asshole of the Day!”

BOSTON – A man taken into custody near the Boston Marathon finish line late Tuesday, the anniversary of the deadly pressure cooker bombings, had a rice cooker in his backpack and was being charged with possession of a hoax device, police said. The man was stopped by an officer who saw him acting suspiciously, including walking down the middle of a street barefoot in pouring rain, Police Superintendent Randall Halstead said. The man dropped the backpack and told the officer it contained a rice cooker, he said.

That’s the one thing about being an ‘asshole’ folks, nobody likes, or wants to be, an ‘asshole,’ they just can’t help it because ……….., they’re an “asshole!”



 Central Elgin is moving ahead with engineering and design work on two projects to boost economic development and tourism in Port Stanley.
03-cottage on kawagamaThe municipality received $60,000 in provincial funding to design and engineer a public boat launch and improve a walkway linking Port Stanley’s east harbor with the village core.
“We’ve been working hard over this term of council to make improvements around the harbor,” said Central Elgin Mayor Bill Walters.

“We’re still working with Transport Canada, and some of that process is a little slower than we would like. But anything we can do to work with the lands that we have, to make improvements to attract more tourism and more economic development, we’re quite pleased to do that.”

Folks, this story strikes home with me because Port Stanley is only half an hour from my place, and we enjoy going there for a drive.

BUT, if they wanted to attract more tourists they sure missed the boat on this one!

There was a Canadian WWll submarine up for grabs a couple of years ago, and Port Stanley dropped the ball by letting little ol’ Port Burwell, (in the middle of nowhere) get it!

Retired Ojibwa submarine is available for touring. It costs around $17.00 per adult person each but well worth it as they try to restore this beauty. A perfect attraction for children to see as part of history. It is dry-docked and you can go inside and have a college age tour guide explain the workings of the sub and see where 75 sailors lived sometimes for up to almost 250 days at a time!

I have attached a photo; the sub looks small from the harbour, but is HUGE once you are near it

Is there something about the air, out there on the prairies this time of year!

A university student in Calgary stabbed five people to death, and another one in Regina injured four more!

Et tu, Jack?


P.E.I. Report!

imagesVX73U9H0The cops were investigating a two vehicle car crash in Charlottetown yesterday when 46-year-old Amy Schulz stumbled away while they were questioning the other driver.

I say stumbled because when they caught up to her, and gave her a breathalyzer….., she was 3X over the limit!


Jesus, now we have a third “Asshole of the day!”

Manning’s wife, 45-year-old Teresa Castillo, told officers her husband had bought the car earlier in the day for $200 so they could drive to his court appearance.

The 49-year-old Manning and his wife were arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft and possession of a controlled substance., impaired driving, driving while disqualified and being just plain stupid!

Oh, They also remain in jail!

O.M.G. ANOTHER ASSHOLE! Folks, they’re just flying left, right and centre today!

Creationists, crying ‘foul” are up in arms that they are not given equal time with Evolution on the COSMOS series!

(Listen kids, I swear I don’t make this stuff up!)


Some good news out of that insane asylum we call The United States: Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually out muscle the National Rifle Association.

Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own.

“They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A. “ ‘If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grand kids and your great-grand kids. And we’re never going to stop.’ ”

He added: “We’ve got to make them afraid of us.”

The considerable advantages that gun rights advocates enjoy — in intensity, organization and political clout — will not be easy to overcome. Indeed, Mr. Bloomberg has already spent millions of dollars trying to persuade members of Congress to support enhanced background check laws with virtually nothing to show for it.

What is more, for many gun owners, the issue is a deeply personal one that energizes them politically, said Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, who dismissed the mayor’s plans.

“He’s got the money to waste,” Mr. Pratt said. “So I guess he’s free to do so. But frankly, I think he’s going to find out why his side keeps losing.”
