How much Viagra can a Torontonian take?

City of Toronto employees spent almost $2 million on erectile dysfunction pills last year.

As well as the employees, the blue pills are also raising red flags, as insurers are asking why some are getting reimbursed for more than a pill a day per year.

My first thought was, there must be an awful lot of city employees and they must be incredibly horny.

A report revealed that 37 claimants were each reimbursed over $3000. and 5 reimbursed over $5000. for drugs like Viagra and Cialis.

There is no cap on the amount Toronto city employees can be prescribed each year.

There are also records of abuse with oxycodone and fentanyl patches where some have been prescribed enough for 5-6 years in a single year.

There are accusations of fraudulent use of benefits where the products are actually being sold, although that has yet to be proven.

Most organizations have limits for things like glasses, so why not erectile dysfunction pills?

An investigation will tell if this a wide spread problem or just really happy city employees.

Living Rock 30th Anniversary Gala

One of the first charities I got involved with when I started back at CHML over ten years ago was Living Rock Ministries.

What impressed me about Living Rock was, it’s about creating partnerships rather than giving handouts.

This was evident when I was broadcasting from the very first Soupfest many years ago at Liuna Station.

This was more than an event organized by Living Rock, this was an event being run by the youth.

The youth were in charge and owned the event, they took pride in the fact it was theirs.

Living Rock is teaching dedication and commitment to one’s self.

It is those skills that are helping them to contribute to their own lives and then help others.

 Kudos to Al and Karen Craig for giving youth a second chance in our city.

It was an honour to be the MC and their 30th anniversary gala.

Another great organization that benefits when you make a donation to the CHML Children's Fund.

I'm Scott Thompson.

The Young and Political

Oct 25, 2016 5:00 AM

The Progressive Conservative candidate that has been selected to run in Tim Hudaks old riding of Niagara West-Glanbrook is younger than Tim was when he started.

A lot younger.

He’s 19 year old Sam Oosterhoff who is currently enrolled at Brock University as a political science student.

Wow! I knew the second generation of Trudeaumania would young things up a bit not to the point where shaving may be a pre-requisite.

At first glance ones reaction is ‘about time’.

The Conservatives both federally and provincially have been characterized as being old, stuffy and out of touch.

Many have been questioning what the new face of Conservatism would look like in this country.

PC Leader Patrick Brown says the by-election sends a "positive message of change."

But is it really change, or a page out of your great grandfather’s conservative playbook?

Seems the young candidate was not Browns first choice, is very social conservative, and appeals more to the religious right.

The youngster is still questioning the Liberals sex ed curriculum after most, including his leader, have moved on.

The last thing the Conservatives need now, is the old school, in new clothes.

We already have that with the Wynne Liberals.

I’m Scott Thompson.
