The oh so provincial edition

We‘re getting stiffed by two levels of government on a regular basis. It may be time for us to start thinking about acting on our own and becoming a province.

As an Ontarian, may I just say, sayonara babies.

Lets be clear what this is about. The federal government and the Government of Ontario have become immune to Toronto’s whining, so now they want in on the equalization train… If Ontario won’t pay, maybe Alberta will.

I repeat, sayonara babies.

In Dalton McGuinty’s Ontario…

If you are in the hospital, and want to be discharged, security at the hospital may: use force to return you to a hospital room and strap you to a bed, expressly against your will. daltons-ontario

To be clear, we aren’t talking about a mentally ill man, we aren’t talking about an offender who was under some form of arrest, we aren’t talking about a man with dementia. This is a man with all his faculties who was ready to leave. He was kidnapped and forcibly confined, and the “police say… staff had legal authority to return the patient to a room.”

And those bruises on Ron Meredith’s wrists from the tie down? They, “were the result of him being on blood thinners…” Well, if only he was at the hospital were compassionate people might have known he was on blood thinners.

Here’s the thing. Everything Rom Meredith accused the hospital of that is verifiable, his story checks out. Everything the police can’t verify, they take the hospitals word on what happened. As 1`,2 and 3 are true, can’t we at least assume 4,5 and 6 are true, even if we you can’t act on it?
