Crop top vs. the niqab

May 28, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

It wasn’t that long ago we were debating the wearing of full face coverings (or the niqab) during a citizenship ceremony.

Now (as we seem to every year at this time) we are debating what is appropriate attire at school during the warmer months.

How ironic is it, one is about wearing too little, and the other about wearing too much?

Although they seem to be at opposite ends of the spectrum, do they have anything in common?

Let’s compare issues.

Both involve women. Both involve dress. Both involve individual rights.

No matter what your position is on either issue, it seems we are trying to tell people what they should or shouldn’t be doing.

Perhaps the time could be better spent asking ourselves what we should be doing, rather than others.

No I’m not trying to change your mind on either issue, because it’s a personal choice.

All we can do is educate, parent, and lead by example.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Teacher union strike is illegal

May 27, 2015 5:00 PM
Scott Thompson

As you know the Ontario government has ordered the striking high school teachers in Durham, Peel and Sudbury back to work.

They said the reason is that the student’s year is in jeopardy.

As a result the teachers unions have decided to ramp up their work to rule action as of June 1st.

A copy of the bulletin, says that as of June 1, teachers must refuse to plan field trips for next year, take part in meetings about students’ transition from one grade to the next or participate in professional development programs at the end of June or the start of September.

This should make for an interesting time come September.

Late yesterday the decision everyone was waiting for on whether this strike was even legal or not came down from the Ontario Labour Relations Board.

The Ontario Labour Relations Board has ruled the strike is ‘illegal’.

In its decision, the OLRB said the strikes were “in contravention of the School Boards Collective Bargaining Act, 2014″ and have ordered the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF), to “cease and desist their unlawful strike” immediately.

I went through this crap when I was a kid and now watching my kids go through it after over 40 years of non-stop bullying by teachers unions.

I think Ontarians have finally had enough of the same teacher union rhetoric decade after decade.

The actions of the teacher unions are unacceptable by the majority of Ontarians, and have been for decades.

They simply have too much control over your family and future.  And that’s not right.

LRT for Hamilton, but from what party?

May 26, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Today the premier will announce funding for an amended LRT system in Hamilton.

The new route will include stopping the east/west line at the Queenston traffic circle instead of extending to Eastgate Square from McMaster.

The province also demands that a spur line join the new LRT to the new GO station. 

I told you so….

Oddly enough this comes at the same time plans are being discussed to widen the Red Hill Valley Pkwy and Linc due to overwhelming demand.

Begging the question, which do you think will be ready first?

A widening of the RHVP and the Linc, or the LRT?

The real question is, not whether Wynne and Liberal government will give Hamilton LRT.

The real question is, whether the next government will honour Wynne’s promise after the Liberals are defeated by the PC’s or NDP in the next election?

It’s pretty hard to promise anything beyond your elected term, and that’s what’s happening here…

But it never hurts to plan….

I’m Scott Thompson.
