Toronto the Not in a Death Spiral

Comments Off on Toronto the Not in a Death Spiral

Lying in a hospital bed recovering from serious surgery, your first item of concern should not be death threats, as in, direct threats against your life. And when that happens, the Police should take the threats seriously, even if the threat came from a muslim.

I contacted Toronto police. Within hours, two uniformed policemen from 51 Division came to interview me in hospital. However, barely one minute later, we were interrupted. Two men entered the room and told everybody else to leave. They did not identify themselves, but five minutes into what amounted to a two-hour interrogation, I realized they were police intelligence officers. One of them, I recognized by reputation – a Muslim officer who had shut down a previous investigation into a death threat against me in 2008, and another one against a partner in liberal Islam, Tahir Gora.

The money quote from moderate Muslim Tarek Fatah: “I’m hopeful that the police may yet make the right decision, now that I have gone public with this disgrace. If not, I will know the city I love is lost.”

daltons-ontarioWe’re all just really, really big children.

We’re just kind of growing up a little bit as Ontarians.

Thanks to Premier Cool Uncle (formerly Premier Dad), Dalton McGuinty, for having such confidence in us. Dad never did!

We’ve heard from Ontarians and they are ready for more freedom.

So, Chris Bentley, you can hear us. Hear this, both of you:

and you sure aren’t cool enough to tell me when and were I can drink

Debt Clock

March 1st, 2011

In the 1990’s the Canadian Taxpayer Federation launched a National Debt Clock.

The twelve foot long clock got dragged around the country hitched to a pickup truck to highlight Canada’s growing debt problem. It was retired in 1998 after the federal and provincial governments started balancing their budgets.

With the return to deficit financing in 2008, the CTF launched an on-line debt clock. This year, after public requests to do so, they resurrected the original clock. It is currently being towed across the country, starting one week ago in BC, and ending Halifax at the end of March.

You can also get a Debt Clock for your webpage, and you will see I now have it on my sidebar:

To add a Debt Clock widget to your webpage, copy and paste this code:

<iframe src=”” alt=”” width=”210″ frameborder=”0″ height=”135″ scrolling=”no”></iframe>

or get the code from CTF. You can also find out where the Debt Clock will be at the CTF webpage, and request it stop in your community. I’ll be requesting a Hespeler stop, hopefully on a day I can stop by and talk to the CTF guys.

And Kevin Gaudet, if you can make it personally to Hespeler, there’s a coffee in it for you from me.
