EDUCATION BEAT


No Consent: Ontario secondary school students rally across the province to protest the Ford PC's social conservative "repeal" of Ontario's modern, inclusive, sex education curriculum. Our young student activist's tell the Premier that they don't consent to his regressive move in no uncertain terms @ Star @ Globe @ We The Students!

Sex Ed Charter Violation: The CCLA [Canadian Civil Liberties Association] argues that censoring LGBTQ issues from Ontario's sex ed curriculum will "do real harm" to the province's LGBTQ students and their parents. Of course, our new Premier might just once again brazenly evoke the Notwithstanding Clause, to override their Charter Rights, as he has threatened. But as the saying goes -no justice no peace. More @ CBC

Soc-Con Snitch Line: The Ford PC's quickly pick a fight with Ontario's teachers, as our provincial Conservatives are apt to do, once again forgetting whom helped bring about the Great Tory Demise of 2003. Get this -Parents that discover their children's teachers aren't blindly following Dougie's social conservative sex ed dictates, on the repealed curriculum, are supposed to report them to him by phone. Sadly, Ontario's teachers are now caught between a rock and a hard place -Ford verses the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, their professional standards and the Ontario College of Teachers. ETFO and OSSTF quickly guarantee their union member's legal assistance, if they get caught in the middle, as Ford's shit hits the fan. More @ Star



Catholic Sex Abuse Scandals: As the Catholic Church is increasingly exposed for systemic, widespread corruption as the biggest pedophile organization in the world, Canadians, even those who are practising Catholics, must now ask ourselves: Should we be publicly funding the separate school system and providing the church with tax breaks any longer? Truly it's impossible to enable, hide or ignore the long track record of horrific abuse, least of all in the name of God and ahem ... Christian values @ CBC @ Buzz Another POV @ CV

Why Do Unions Matter! Even if you don't belong to one? You like weekends, holidays, maternity leave, safe working conditions, healthcare, worker rights and a pension don't you? Thank the union movement! More @ NYT

OH CANADA



NotWithThinking: Ontario Premier Doug Fraud is found guilty by a judge and shell shocked Torontonians of violating our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, without even giving it much thought. His new PC government has arbitrarily cut city hill from 47 to 25 elected councillors. Dougie thought that it would've been okay to abuse the Charter's "Notwithstanding Clause" to nix the verdict, rather than even bother to wait for an appeal. The Notwithstanding clause? Well, it's a very Canadian constitutional oddity and he uses it sort of like how Trump abuses his "Executive Orders", just to get his own way. Now, in grotesquely throwing our fall city election into total chaos as a part his lingering grudge match with city council's progressive wing, he is also unfairly disadvantaging many candidates, and undercutting our citizen rights to fair and equal representation. Very sad! Pathetic! Even tragic! More @ Star

Majority Rule?!?: Premier Fraud won Ontario's spring election with a majority of seats if not the actual vote. He now insists that gives him the complete right to do as he bloody well pleases, supposedly by "majority rule". In so doing, he displays a complete lack of respect and understanding for how Canadian democracy really works, vis a vis the rule of law, our Charter Rights, and the very important role of the judiciary within our constitution. Sadly, it looks like he'll actually get his way with city council. So what's the silver lining, if any? The PC's political honeymoon, on short notice, is now all but over. Our Fraudster Premier's fitfully revealed himself rather belatedly to the electorate in no uncertain terms. At least now the battle lines are clearly drawn, so everybody finally knows where we stand in the big fight ahead, over the next four years @ CBC @ Star


A Pandora's Box: Premier Fraud seems totally oblivious that he's crossed a very dangerous political line, in evoking the Notwiththinking Clause to override our Charter Rights, opening up a real Pandora's box for year's to come. Let's be completely objective. Imagine future NDP or Liberal governments using the clause to do whatever they want too! What a horror show! A truly ugly, impulsive precedent has been set totally without any sober thought or care. It's no way to govern responsibly in a complex, developed country and democracy like Canada. For shame! @ CBC



Everything Is Broken: Surprised? Premier Fraud has a long, very shady and disgraceful political record, dating back to his term as councillor and wingman for  brother Mayor Rob Ford at Toronto City Hall. Still the putz has managed to easily seize control of the provincial PC party, win the spring election, and turn our Canadian constitution upside down on it's head. Not only do we desperately need to defeat the PC Fraudster in the next provincial election, but it clearly shows that our legal and political system also carefully need to be fixed, so that this chaos doesn't happen again @ NatPo

Rise and Fall of Caroline Mulroney: Lots of Ontarian's had high leadership hopes for Caroline as our our new AG [Attorney General]. She's also the daughter of a former Prime Minister who ironically, is a very strong critic of the "Notwithstanding Clause". However, her complete spineless inaction and compliance during the recent crisis has now totally overshadowed all of that. Surely, it's time for her and the Ontario Progressive Conservatives to drop any pretence of being "Progressive" and change the party name. As for Ms. Mulroney, it's going to be a very long, and nasty 4 years before we can bid her 
adieu. But meanwhile we can give her a damn good run for her money @ Star

Fact Check Time: Premier Fraud didn't conduct any public consultation whatsoever on his plans to slash Toronto City Council, despite his claims of widespread support for his haphazard actions. Like buddy boy President Trump, south of the border, our Fraudster's frequent, bogus lies always, invariably, and without reservation require that we very thoroughly fact check everything he says More @ iPol and @ Globe and @ Star



The Ticking Clock: The polling numbers are clear, both across Toronto and the province. Ontario overwhelming opposes PC Druggie Ford's crude and uncalled for use of the notwithstanding clause. He's clearly exposed and branded himself as the crass, unabashed Neo Con Fraudster that he really is, despite his manipulative,  mainstream charm. Doesn't even seem to care that smack in the middle of his government's honeymoon period he's gone shot himself and the party in the foot. True, it's still very early in his term, but he's now painted a huge, inviting target on his political back for all to clearly see. Really, our Fraudster Premier is only making our job to unseat him and his lackey, unethical PC government, all that much, more easy over the four years ahead @ Global

Election Meddling 101: Folks are understandably very upset about the prospect of Russian election meddling south of our border. However, quite ironically the US has also regularly rigged elections in other lots of other countries, including Canada, for many years. Consider President Kennedy's successful coup de etat in helping defeat Prime Minister John Diefenbaker. Why? Because he refused to arm Canada with US nuclear US tipped weapons of mass destruction, without being properly consulted or warned, thereby royally pissing off JFK during the controversial Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962!? Whew! Now it can be told! A must read @ Boyko 1 and @ Boyko 2

KULTURE KULT INK



Lennon Remembered: This fall, the ex-Beatlemeister finally gets the "Imagine" 6 disc deluxe box-set treatment to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic rock album's official release. Imagine that! Of course, the faithful have long ago already scored a nearly endless, unreleased stream of Lennon "Imagine" bootleg outtakes, rare songs and videos! So why take so long to try to cash in?!? Does anybody beside the aging Beatlemaniac still care? BTW, in our crazy, post 9/11 world, Mr. Lennon is very sadly missed. Can just imagine what he'd have to say! @ UCR



The Falling Man: Photos of 9/11 jumpers from the WTC are often censored or viewed with shame in the US. They were hardly cowards, nor few or far between. Rather they were just simply everyday people like you and me. Truly, they are among the real unknown soldiers in the horrific terror wars that still continue to brutally victimize innocent folk of every colour, faith and nationality around the world, as collateral damage, even today! A very powerful piece @ Esquire
