McGuinty, Wynne, same-old, same-old

McGuinty, Wynne, same-old, same-old

The good news is that Premier Dalton McGuinty is no longer the premier of Ontario. I hold that he effectively quit being the premier of Ontario last Fall when on October 15 he announced that he was stepping down and prorogued the legislature indefinitely. But McGuinty carried on the day to day business of the legislature as if he still held the keys to power. If the MPPs can’t meet and ... (Continue reading)

McGuinty quits but stays on

Ontario Premier McGuinty has crawled into bed with Russian Prime Minister Valdimar Putin – both steadfastly refusing to give up power – Putin by naming his successor and then reneging on it and McGuinty by suddenly resigning as premier and on the way out the door proroguing the legislature indefinitely. This surprise announcement comes only hours after Progressive Conservative Leader of the Opposition, Tim Hudak accused McGuinty and other senior members ... (Continue reading)

Is Hudak Canada’s Paul Ryan?

Tim Hudak, provincial leader of the Ontario Progressive Conservate Party, made a generally favourable impression at the press conference at Queen’s Park I attended recently. There’s a core there that feel that he’s an apple that needs some polishing. (But so did former Premier Mike Harris.) I found that Hudak was forceful, articulate, and exhibited strong leadership talents. Hudak reminded me of U.S. Republican vice-president hopeful, Paul Ryan, who I saw on ... (Continue reading)

Got to fight back

In a shameful display of peevishness, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty recently tightened the Access to Information of public information on Ontario abortion statistics making it very difficult for the public to investigate these figures. This has made a strong case for accusations of taxpayer abuse, by hiding the hard facts as to what is going on. It is hard to tell what is going on in McGuinty’s head, as he is ...

McGuinty tries to gay up Catholic schools

It appears that Gay-Straight Clubs in Ontario may be in their death throes having met strong intellectual opposition to their very existence in Great Britain recently from a Dr. Julia Gasper. Gaspar was selected by the UKIP (United Kingdom Independence Party) to run for Parliament. UKIP advocates withdrawal from the European Union and is currently tied with the larger Liberal Democrats in a poll of voting intentions in Britain. In 2010, Dr. ... (Continue reading)

McGuinty lose his political smarts?

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty never dreamt that seeking rival MPPs to join him in his precarious minority government, in order to give him the majority he so eagerly sought, would be like sliding off the proverbial roof of a cattle barn into the biggest -gosh-darn load of fresh manure Prince Edward County had ever seen. No matter what Dalton says or what his political minions say, it was a horribly unprincipled move ... (Continue reading)

How did we get into this mess?

“Class come to attention now! Let’s get down to business. Phillip, do you think Ontario Premier McGuinty is an elected despot?” “Sir, I don’t think McGuinty’s important enough to be considered a despot. You have to be more of a worldwide figure to fit in that category.” “I agree with Phillip,” said Anna, “it’s a bit of a stretch” “Sir, I think you’d be giving him more prominence that he deserves.” said Warren. “After ...

Society is conflicted about babies

If I had just arrived from a far-away planet it would be easy to convince me that the people on planet Earth are just crazy about babies. Yes, born and pre-born babies. It has been a big media story about Kate and Prince William expecting their first heir to the throne and not just among royal watchers; the whole world wants to know what’s going on in Kate’s uterus. Why British Prime ... (Continue reading)

When does life begin?

Heather Mallick, a Toronto Star columnist and admitted atheist, dealt with a pro-life issue recently and pleaded with readers: “Quick now, when does life begin?” I hope I can help you, Heather. I’m looking at a black and white picture of a 7-month-old baby boy who was aborted in Houston, Texas, on Dec. 8, 1990. He was 16 inches long with a muscular frame and his umbilical cord was still attached ... (Continue reading)

Celebrating pro-life victories

Former Ontario NDP premier Bob Rae, a vocal abortion advocate, is not fondly remembered for his “Rae Days” that introduced the unpopular, controversial public sector wage cuts he implemented in the ‘90s. As interim leader of the federal Liberal Party, Rae gleefully greeted Lise St-Denis, former Shawinigan federal NDP member who defected to the Liberal federal caucus because the late NDP leader, Jack Layton, an avid pro-abortionist, got her elected and ...

Confusing the kids over gender

Thank God for the “ferocious opposition” from the pro-family and pro-life voters to introducing the absurd project of Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Ontario Liberal government to implement a controversial sex education curriculum teaching Grade 3 children about homosexuality and Grade 7 children about anal and oral sex. Can polygamy and bestiality be far behind? All these crucial issues without going to the electorate for their voice to be heard. Fearing a colossal election ... (Continue reading)

McLuhan: unknown but famous

McLuhan: unknown but famous

Marshall McLuhan is back in the spotlight in a worldwide celebration of 100 years of McLuhan. He wasn’t really gone. What McLuhan – as a cult figure – predicted years ago of an emerging global village, a sort of a Promised Land would arrive. McLuhan, who didn’t think it would necessarily be agreeable or tolerable, was uncannily correct with the ruthless phone-hacking culture that the British tabloid News of the World ...

Is Bill Whatcott crazy?

I’ve known Bill Whatcott, a fiery, dedicated, courageous, traditional morality activistfor over 20 years. He is making headlines all over Canada in our usually hostile press, and is now facing his judgement day shortly as the members of the Supreme Court of Canada as to whether his right to freedom of expression is dead or not. Bill Whatcott publicly protests homosexuality and abortion with big signs “homosexuality is a sin,” and other ... (Continue reading)

Saluting pro-life heroes

A giant of an unsung pro-life hero, Cardinal Aloysius Ambrozic, died recently in his early 80s after a long illness. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion, mayors of the two of the largest cities in Canada, attended the standing room only funeral Mass at St.Michael’s Cathedral in Toronto. Cardinal Ambrozic was a strong moral and financial supporter of LifeSiteNews in its embryonic stage and embraced its mission enthusiastically. His support ... (Continue reading)

McGuinty gets the Order of the Boot

If there was any other prominent politician more worthy of getting booted out of public office than Premier of Ontario Dalton McGuinty, I don’t know who it is. McGuinty, who claims to be Catholic, has a Liberal MPP mouthpiece give a glowing welcoming address on his behalf to the Toronto Pride parade officials recently. This flies in the face of the Catholic Church’s teachings (and many other religions’ as well) against promoting ... (Continue reading)
