Toronto Councillor Paula Fletcher's Tyranny in Ward 30 Must End




One of the worst City Councillors Toronto has ever had, former Communist Party Leader Paula Fletcher, is again running for City Councillor in Toronto's Ward 30, and this year couldn't be a better time to toss that arrogant and elitist piece of trash into the garbage.

For those of you who don't recall Fletcher's disgraced and shameful infamous berating of poor innocent Torontonian John Smith during his deputation in regards to the latest Toronto Budget, here's the story: Communist Toronto City Councillor Paula Fletcher Disgraces Herself at Budget Meeting, and here's a video of the altercation on YouTube:

McGuinty Pushing All Ontario Ministries to Add More Fees




If you thought the HST and the new Eco-Fee were enough New Taxes and Fees already, wait till you hear what Dalton McGuinty has in store for Ontarians next...

A new "Results-Based Planning document" released by the McGuinty Government is urging all Provincial Ministries to create new fees or enhance existing fees to increase revenue to stay on budget.

Leave the Ontario Place Cinesphere Alone!!!




The Ontario Place Corporation, an agency of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, issued a Request for Information (RFI) yesterday to the private sector for proposals for the redevelopment of the 96-acre Toronto waterfront amusement park.

Revitalization is great, but the problem with the RFI is that it doesn't have any requirements to keep the existing structures, like the Ontario Place Cinesphere. And for something that is so iconic to Toronto and Ontario, losing the Cinesphere would be a tragedy.

NHL Commissioner Douchebag Gary Bettman Makes $7.23 Mil Salary???




Did you know that Gary "The Douchebag Extraordinaire" Bettman, the shamed Commissioner of the NHL, made $7.23 Million in 2008-2009?!!

What the hell is going on??

If we compare that to the latest 2010/2011 salaries of the highest paid NHL Players, that would put him at #20 on the list, just edging out Joe Thornton!

The Nightmare Called "Flashblood" Heroin Use



(Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania)

Apparently, in Tanzania there's a scary trend with heroin-addicted female sex workers, where the older poorer sex worker who gets less work, gets a younger more active user to give them about a teaspoon of their blood after they get high so that they can inject it and get their fix from their heroin-rich blood.

No need to remind you about the AIDS epidemic that's going on in Africa, so putting two and two together really becomes a nightmare...

Just thinking about those tourists who go there for their "African Safari" and hook up with those AIDS-infected sex workers, and then come back home afterward to unknowingly spread their new found "partner"... Wow.

Anyway, you should read some of the numbers from the study. Here's the story from the Toronto Sun:

Rob Ford to Gain From Joke Candidate Mammoliti's Early Exit




Well, it was only a matter of time until Giorgio Mammoliti bailed from the Toronto Mayoral Race to try and preserve his current job as a Toronto City Councillor -though even that may be in jeopardy as in his quest for Mayor, 8 other candidates in his ward have entered the race to take his council seat.

Mammoliti may have only now decided to withdraw from the race, but the majority of Torontonians already dismissed him as a joke candidate after the release of his plans for Toronto's waterfront and the Gardiner if elected (see No cars on the Gardiner in Mammoliti’s waterfront plan).

Now that Mammoliti is out, internal polls taken by Mammoliti's team suggest that Rob Ford is expected to pick up his share of the voters.
