    • 3 Small Words

      Oh I am sure by now you will have read more than enough analysis of “what went wrong with Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC’s?” I am also sure that there will be a steady stream still to come as we begin the leadership process. Here’s one more, but I just want to talk about 3 small words. They may be small but they would have made a significant difference.

      There has been a lot of comparison between the[…]

  • Enough about Senate Scandals already!! Let’s not forget Robocalls!
    • Enough about Senate Scandals already!!  Let’s not  forget Robocalls!

      We have recently been overwhelmed by story after story about the plague of the recent Senate spending scandals with even more to come I am sure.

    • The Theatre is now closed…Time to get to work

      (My Starbucks moment)

      I should pay more attention to the side of my coffee cup. No, not because of the warning “The drink you are about to enjoy is extremely hot” but for the great message it sometimes provides. I feel that I have read and re-read one particular Starbucks “The Way I See It” quote many times and finally decided I needed to take action on it.

    • The Colours of Politics (or My Orange Tie)

      Politics has become increasingly more partisan over the last decade.  There used to be a time when members of opposing parties could get together for a drink or two to share ideas and debate the issues of the day.  They might not always agree and often heated but friendly discussion would come from these disagreements.  Oh yes, the theatre of Question Period required them to make animated speeches[…]
