    I'm not sure how Trudeau could school anyone on how the refugee system works, because a) it's broken as it is and b) he doesn't seem to know that.

    We need something that encourages most refugee claimants to cross at legal points with their papers intact, and go through the proper process.

    One of Wynne's time bombs went off as the Chief Science Officer they hired six months before getting booted, was let go with the appropriate frenzy of ink from some papers.

    As far as that income goes, it's actually the tax payers footing the bill, and it's outgo in that regard.

    Yes we know that Hydro set themselves up a poison pill for the public to swallow. Do you really want to keep people who'd do that to the public around?

    the refugee system as is, leaves anyone following legitimate channels from off shore spending months (years) to get in. Showing up at an illegal crossing gets you a medical checkup and housing, and 3 square a day.

    Same as saying "the justice system as is, leaves anyone following legitimate channels spending months (years) to get a judgement. Presenting a threat to society gets you a medical checkup and housing, and 3 square a day."

    So the moral of the story is the justice system is broken?
    The odd times I felt I'd approached the truth, it rested on the premise that people are essentially good and smart.

    JT will have the last laugh . When he is gone ( hopefully ) the next guy in will have to deal with deporting all these rejected refugees .

    Next up, fire the CEO of Hydro One resulting in another lawsuit that will cost millions...and replace him with....? Who exactly? Someone cheaper? Someone who doesn't really have a good grasp of the job and could end up making poor decisions that cost all of us more billions on top of the wrongful dismissal lawsuit?

    But hey, buck a beer and cheap gas, right?
    Where do you get this stuff? Please outline:

    1) Penalties. Carbon is auctioned into a market then traded. It's done for the year, game over. Nothing goes into next years auction -- it's done it's over.

    2) Why Ontario Hydro execs deserve to keep their jobs. Ontario Hydro is one of the poorest performing electricity operators in the country, it's executive is paid approx 10x that of Hydro Quebec or Manitoba Hydro -- two of the most effectively run in the world. It's a publicly traded monopoly - it should be a Wall street high flyer but the stock price is a joke! Ontario Hydro has become a political extension of the Libs and their exec have been party to the Liberal shenanigans with gas plants, retrofit overruns, energy dumping, and debt obfuscation. Do you trust their executive with your money?

    We don't have a justice system. We have a legal system. Big difference.

    I can't think of two systems that are more opposite. With one people are trying to get in, with the other people are trying to stay out.

    And the CEO is gone... with no severance.

    "Hydro One has committed to completing the transition process to a new board of directors by August 15, 2018. In connection with Mr. Schmidt's retirement, he will receive amounts consistent with Hydro One's retirement policies and his employment agreement as previously disclosed and will not be entitled to severance. Mr. Schmidt will receive a $400,000lump sum payment in lieu of all post-retirement benefits and allowances."

    Well I guess he's keeping his promises, in a short amount of time. Some might look at this as a good thing. Is sex ed gone too?

    Sex Ed is gone. Mayo smitch is only 400k but getting rid of the overall board is going to cost more than smitch..

    I'm a fan of what Doug is doing. Hopefully more to come... I was happy today watch the news and they couldn't find a liberal to comment on sex ed change... Most of them gone LOL

    The current complaint is that the deputy minister was home schooled.

    No, the deputy minister, who's really hard to identify at the moment.

    The Ontario Ministry of Ed website lists the Deputy Min as Bruce Rodrigues, Degree in Mathematic, Bachelor of Ed , and Masters degree in Divinity . He looks like a victim of home schooling also.
    Unless the Ministry of Education doesn't update there website..... in which case do tell who the 'complainers' are complaining about.

    My concern is that these changes are coming too fast. The old "Haste makes waste" thingy.

    We had crap choices. Ford was a Hail Mary pass. It'll be a few years before we find out if we got a touchdown.

    If he doesn't handle the ball well we will get an expensive slam to the left in four years.
