I’ve been hard on cops a couple of times recently. But this time, I’m coming out in support of something that I think has been given way too much time and coverage. In the Toronto Star today, there’s an editorial entitled “Poor Tool For Police,” a criticism of fund raising that some police associations have […]
There’s a story that’s strangely quiet, and that if true, should fill you with disgust. Thankfully, Mark Bonokoski of The Toronto Sun has picked up on it, and hopefully more of our ‘Free Press’ will investigate. In my recent blog entry on “Canadian Cops – Servants or Masters?” I was tempted to discuss the story
I’ve just been doing my daily blog rounds, and found this good piece over at Let It Bleed, on an editorial that appeared in today’s Toronto Star. All the more reason why The Star should become a public service. We could raise the standards of journalism and editorialism, and enforce them better. Business just isn’t

I had a phone call recently from a friend of mine asking if I’d be willing to help out David Tilson, the former Ontario MPP that gave up his seat for Ernie Eves in Ontario. Tilson has won the Conservative party nomination Federally for the riding I reside in. But I don’t know. I’m not
Maybe Mr. Tilson will get my help after all. I mean.. why not let others have the same chance to waddle up to the trough and spread the loot of tax payer money? This article in the National Post has prompted me to write yet another letter to my MP, Murray Calder: Dear Mr. Calder,
One of these days, I’m going to spend some time on two different topics: Gun Control and Foreign Aid. But for now, check out how your tax dollars are being spent. What could your community do with 4 Million dollars in repaid taxes? Kate at Small Dead Animals. (It’s also good to know that life
Posted 79 days ago on March 16, 2004 The Internet is an amazing thing. Sometimes, I stay up way too late, just browsing and reading, learning, laughing, and at times like this, outright guffawing – and growing angry at how my tax dollars get spent. While doing some research on policing, I came across this
