  1. It doesn't matter what they think about it. It gets them off the streets for long periods of time. It's hard to repeat offend when you are in jail. Again, you are naive. 5 years is never that long. They get credited with double time for time served prior to conviction and all terms are maximum with usually only a third of the time served. We would be lucky if the actual time served was 1 to 1.5 years.
  2. How naive of you. If it doesn't stop the shootings what makes you think there would be any change in what a policeman thinks? The Federal Government needs to put their efforts and funding into things that will make things better rather than giving the impression that they are: - more enforcement at the border to stop illegal guns from entering Canada - harsher penalties for crimes involving guns. No bail for anyone committing a crime with a gun (no getting out before the police finish the paper work - they stay in jail until their trial is over and only released if they are inno
  3. Postal code is a great system if you only drive in your own area. Much better to use your driving history. That goes where ever you drive.
  4. The first sentences in your post say it... I think Doug Ford is scrambling and for obvious reasons he is in way over his head, this isn't something he ever dreamed of dealing with. He probably sees this as something to combat his closures of businesses.
  5. Your hatred of Doug is clouding your judgement. Ontario has approximately 40% of Canada's population but in almost every covid stat. that has been published we are contributing less than 40% (in some cases much less). Obviously Ontario is doing many of the right things.
  6. It doesn't take brains to deny the obvious....
  7. I think the following charts show precisely how they are working...
  8. Since you state that 84% of the eligible population is fully vaccinated when the daily cases reaches 50/50 it means that the unvaxed cases come from 16% of the eligible population. That makes them 5+ times more likely to get covid. Not very good odds.
  9. Okay Mr. Smart Guy. We are paying interest on that debt. If you never pay any of it back and the debt keeps going up, we will be paying increasing interest forever and never reducing the principle. I bet we have payed the debt many times over. If we have many more years like this one we won't be able to even pay the annual interest.
  10. I see from the article you supplied that one rate has almost doubled, another has gone up by approx. 1/3 and the other has actually gone down from last year. In Fail economics this means that all rates have doubled. If you look back in the year chart the rates are even higher before they were artificially lowered by borrowing money. You FAIL again. You can't make it true by stating your fantasy data over and over again. Still haven't seen proof of your hydro costs doubling....
  11. Still haven't seen any proof that your bill has doubled (i won't hold my breath). Irregardless, this was all caused by McGuilty and no-Wynne. They spent billions and then borrowed money to artificially lower bills immediately to be paid back by our children. Its like a speeding train, it takes along time for the brakes to take effect. With you there is no pretending to be dumb. You are, and seem to be proud of it.
  12. As I said...deflect...deflect...deflect. The off peak price is just one of 3 prices. How did the other 2 compare? Like I said show us your bill to prove your cost has doubled (absolutely no chance of this ever happening...). The over all bill is the only way to really to see what effect the rate change has made. With your lack of financial and mathematical knowledge it is no wonder that you make ridiculous claims based on the change of one of 3 rates for hydro power.
  13. I just checked my payments for the end of last year and the beginning of this year. Largest increase in Feb. was about 20% (total bill not rates) and last month it was about 20% less. Is this just another one of those items that you keep repeating and then expect everyone to believe you? Show us your bills from last year and this year to prove your point (you can blank out address and account number). I won't hold my breath waiting for you to post your actual bills. Hold on I hear some keyboard input coming from you.... " deflect...deflect...deflect...deflect... Why won't these people acc
  14. Seems like you are generating your own fake news in your undying need to make Trudeau (should be Liedeau) look good (an impossible task). In the Global News story below, Scheer submitted the costs to the Conservative Party and they approved the expenses. He didn't steal anything. May not have been a proper expense but the Conservative Party should have turned it down. OTTAWA — Andrew Scheer billed the Conservative party for his kids’ private Catholic school, private security, an extra housekeeper, his minivan and clothes for his family, a party review of the outgoing leader’
  15. You truly do not know anything. Covid Alert is not a tracking app. Besides that you should love it as your loverboy JT supports it as well....
  16. Strong in you is the one way urge, Obe-Oneway. Are you too much a Lieberal boot licker to realize there is a difference between the student "volunteers" receiving the funding and the contract workers paid to find them and submit the paper work. Thank god you're not involved in any of these programs or the deficit would be even worse than it is. Why on earth would they have staff for a year when the program runs for only a few months? Even though some funding may stretch beyond the summer, they won't be signing up volunteers after the summer. Do you expect to have these contract wor
  17. https://www.thestar.com/politics/federal/2020/07/11/we-charity-lays-off-hundreds-after-deal-with-trudeau-government-is-cancelled.html "Two sources told the Star that WE originally indicated it would honour the contracts, most of which were set to end Aug. 31, according to the organization. But on Tuesday, the sources said, WE let them go. The organization told the Star that workers were given additional compensation based on how long they had worked with WE. "
  18. So if we divy the $20 mill. amongst the 455 contracters that comes to almost $44,000 each for less than 2 months work. Sure looks like WE would be taking a really big cut to me.
  19. LOL. I wonder if the beard has made any difference?
  20. Last election TrueDope said (strike that - promised) that he would balance it in the fourth year. How did that work out?
  21. Right now there is a small number of grocery stores allowed to sell beer so it is not a valid comparison to what it could be. What do you think the price would be if Costco were allowed to sell beer in Ontario?
  22. It certainly isn't the Ontario Government. They set minimum prices for liquor and beer. The breweries and distillers set the price for their product above that minimum. Ontario and Feds set the taxes that apply to the beer and liquor. If Ontario set the price there would be more buck a beer products. The Beer Store is owned by several major breweries, so basically they are setting prices. Although the Beer Store is privately owned (not government) they still run a virtual monopoly on beer sales. Regardless of volumes sold, the added competition should help to keep prices lower or not at l
  23. You really are a financial idiot. A product could only go down or up by the same percentage as gas if the gas accounts for 100% of the product, which of course is rediculous. Gas will be a percentage of the transportation cost for that product. If you buy the product once, the extra cost will be negligable. If you have to buy it frequently the extra cost could be a burden. With products whose costs fluctuate it is always easy for someone to ask if you noticed any difference when an extra tax is added. The thing to remember with the carbon tax is that a litre of gas is always approximately
  24. If going backwards under Scheer means we are going in the opposite of Trudeau's direction the result is we are moving forward again. Yea....
