OH CANADA

Cuts Hurt People: Ontario's Ford PC's have been firing up a huge trash can party across the province! In year one alone, to ostensibly "balance the budget", most everything thats made our province a great people place in which to live, has been put to the torch. Here's a list of the cuts to health, education, the environment, social services, research, justice, municipalities, the legislature, arts, culture and tourism. On and on it goes. Premier Doug Ford's pals must be laughing so hard they'll piss their pants @ NO

Meet Dean French: Many suspect he's the ... ahem ... "brains" behind the Ford Wrecking Ball. From behind the scenes in the premiers office, he's been directing the smash and grab for Ontario's Neo Conster government @  TL

Last Laugh: Ford's now tanked in the polls, making outgoing Premier Kathleen Wynne look like "Ms Popularity Plus"! He might also be trashing Andrew Scheer's Federal Conservatives odds for a fall election win in Canada's most vote rich province. @ TStar

"Oligarchical Rigging 101" or "Beware of Doug": Get this -Ford's PC's could still get easily re-elected in 2022! As for Andrea Horwath and the opposition NDP? Our wishy washy leftish alternative continues to flounder! The leaderless corporate Neo Liberals? They're in total disarray. Sigh! Alas! A provincial prospectus TStar and @ TStar


Hey! It's Andy + His Pal Doug! Rob 2!

"Engaging Ford" or "You Can Run But You Can't Hide": Ford cuts and runs! He suspends the Ontario legislature, until after the Federal election, perhaps to get out of Scheer's way. But Engage Canada, on behalf of the Canada's unionized workforce starts taking him to task during the Toronto Raptor's NBA playoff's @ CTV 

"Mini-Me" or "Connect The Dots": Think Ford's Ontario PC's are a complete horror show? Just imagine what the Scheer Conservatives could do to create havoc across Canada! Check out Engage Canada's ad and website @ ScheerWeakness

Canuck Right Wing Watch: Rebel Media, Canada's far right mouthpiece has long been long echoing their hate mongering, anti-muslim and pro Big Oil counterparts in the US. Think Trump North! They do so with the help of foreign dollars! And the tentacles run deep! They're very busy funding coverage of Ford crony and Alberta Premier Jason Kenney. So to Neo Conster Andrew Scheer. Also his updated brownshirts; Canada's so called Yellow Vest "protesters". Sadly, while Engage Canada gets instantly labelled a big bad lobby group, with Rebel Media most Canadians ignore the obvious. Inside Rebel Media @ NP @ PP @ Walrus

The Problem With Andrew Scheer: He's a huge magnet for hate groups on the far right. And like Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, he's a corporate tool. But worse yet, all of this is being largely ignored by the Canadian media @ Macs Nor has NDP Federal leader Jagmeet Singh, coming late to the election game, been able to gain much traction @ Macs

IN THE NEWS




Twilight Zone Time: Duh. Duh. Duh. Duh ......

Mueller Time: Seems everybody and their mother has a very strong point of view on the Mueller Report! The alleged Russian election meddling? The Donald Trump cover-up? The obstruction of justice? Even US AG William Barr's summary seems dubious at best. We can't all be right. Or wrong.

Perhaps it's time to actually read it ourselves? At least take a serious gander? So we can speak knowledgeably! About the most important issue in US politics today! And perhaps for a very long time to come!

What the heck did Bob really say? And what is to be done? I prefer the cheap, hard copy version of the Mueller Report. It's now available in bookstores. And even at Costco for crying out loud! Or read the online version for free! @ WP

White Faced: Whatever else, Mueller certainly highlights a dysfunctional, chaotic White House on show for all to see. Both at home and abroad, a Great Power unhinged can be horrifying. Very dangerous. One's enemies take succour. Who knows what they'll do next. Or even if they need to, when the controls are set for self destruct. Consider carefully @  Pol



Impeach or Prosecute? The focus right now seems to be on whether President Donald Trump should be impeached or not. However, to prosecute him on criminal charges after he finishes office could be the best option. Or maybe not? More @ Politico

Dem Dems? The new, urbanized Democratic Party coalition is more diverse and representative of the US population at large than ever before. Thats reflected in the many house votes. Sadly they're often slipping by unnoticed among all Trump's jackass, diversionary grandstanding and antics. Still, are they up to the big job of toppling him in 2020? Time will tell. The clock is ticking. More @ CNN

Democratic Socialism: Presidential contender Bernie Sanders makes a strong case for Democratic Socialism in the US. Attacks Corporate Socialism. Meanwhile, moderate Democrats wring their hands. Are they up to the fight? Will it sell? By US standards, he's definitely pushing the envelope firmly into the new century! More @ Vox @ CNN 

Living Through Another Cuba? Seems not! Despite all his huffing and puffing over Venezuela, the Trumpster is no JFK. Yup. There was a failed, US sponsored, right wing coup attempt. But the dirty tricks seem as far as he's willing to go. It's being widely reported elsewhere, if not here. Both Russia and China have told him to fuck off. Not send in troops. Go the UN route instead. Work to stabilize the troubled nation. Which he won't. And so for now, armed Manifest Destiny at least, in the America's, during the Era of Trump, is kaput! More @ Pol @ TeleSur

EDUCATION BEAT



Bill 115 Redux: Ontario teacher contracts expire August 31st. So many job and course cuts have already been announced. Bets are the Ford Neo Cons will unilaterally impose an austerity contract on the teachers, with lots of slashes and burns a la the Wynne Liberal's Bill 115. Yes! That was ruled illegal years later. But are AEFO, ETFO, OECTA and OSSTF up to the fight? Or will they roll over and play dead again? The unions do so at their own peril. This time, they could very well end up down for the count! Do or die time, it's shaping up as a fight to the finish @ BI

In Bed With Ford: The TCDSB Toronto Catholic school board turns on it's own teachers to balance Ford's $32.8 million funding shortfall. The teachers will now need to pay $10 a day to park at work, a defacto salary cutback. No word yet on whether parents visiting the school must pay too. Nor the trustees or admin at the board office. For shame! @ TStar

"Who 2 Trust Anymore Come Hell Or High Water?!?" Not organized religion! It's all but abandoned the moral high ground. Did so long ago. We've been lied to for far too long. The sexual abuse is very well documented now, and it's legion. So Pope Francis finally sets some new rules for investigating all the Catholic cover-ups, but it's in house, not something that has to be reported to police. And the penalties remain unclear. Meanwhile, the Southern Baptists also continue to grapple with widespread and rampant history of sexual abuse like so many of the other churches. Too little! Too late! Quick! Hide the kiddies! The virgin girls and boys! Faaaaaaa! Jesus must be rolling in his grave! @ WSJ @ TGC

KULTURE KULT INK



Toronto Raptors Win! Naw! Most of the team are Yanks, not Canucks! But they've won the NBA! Defeating the Warriors 114-110, in a 6th game nail biter! A first time for the Raptors. Also the first time an ... ahem ... non US team has won! But Canada parties like crazy anyway. Cracking open the Brewski's! Firing up the joints! Of course, a lot of the NHL players are from here, and ... and ... and so @ Global

Sexist Air-Conditioning?!? Summer is upon us! So. Do you need to wear a heavy sweater at work? Totally freeze your tootsies off every time you enter an air-conditioned building? That's because the temperature is automatically preset to the comfort levels for an average 155 lb, 5 foot 10 man wearing a suit and tie in the 1960's! Even nowadaze? Too bad! The times they are a changing, but maybe not for you! Grrrrrr. Brrrrrr @ WN
