Hydro One shell game

Just imagine closing your eyes and getting the best kiss you have ever had.

Think of the way it makes you feel, warm all over, excited and yet vulnerable.

Now while your eyes are still closed imagine that image being instantly shattered by a slap to the face and a kick in the hoolies!

After weeks of foreplay I suspect that’s exactly how you’re going to feel after Grandma Wynne unveils her budget.

That is if her re-jigging of alcohol distribution is any indication.

I give credit where credit is due and have done so with Grandma’s hip new sex ed curriculum.

But selling off a debt ridden asset and sliding money into government coffers instead of paying down the debt of the sold asset, is like buying a big screen on VISA then having to sell the TV to pay the bill, but instead using the sale to finance a vacation.

Do you follow?  She’s hoping you don’t.

Was all the talk about booze just to distract us away from the shell game that is our electricity system?

I’m Scott Thompson.

Learning the vaccination lesson

An Ottawa woman’s story is very similar to many around the world.

She decided against getting her kids vaccinated and paid the price.

All seven of her kids were isolated after coming down with severe whooping cough.

The mother was confused about the information, despite overwhelming scientific proof that vaccines are safe, and decided not to vaccinate.

"Right now my family is living the consequences of misinformation and fear," she told the Washington Post.

Her position has now changed since all of her kids have come down with the disease, of which there has been a safe vaccine for 70 years.

“I set out to prove that we were right and in the process found out how wrong we were," she confessed.

It’s a tough lesson to learn at the expense of your kids.

The question is, how many have yet to learn the lesson and at what cost?

I’m Scott Thompson.

Insurance rip off?

Apr 15, 2015 5:00 AM

For years after 9/11 all we have heard from the insurance companies is, they’re losing money.

Claims were so high due to the ripple effect rates were soaring through the roof.

Then came natural disasters, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, drought, forest fires, and let’s not forget about the recession.

More was going out then coming in was all we heard.

Until recently.

A study, conducted by York University Schulich School of Business, reveals in 2013 alone, Ontario consumers likely overpaid for car insurance by $840 million.

They estimated that consumers may have overpaid by between $3 and $4 billion over the period 2001 to 2013.

The NDP tried to make an election issue out of this but failed to get the public’s attention, no surprise there.

The advice from experts is to shop around, not only for rate, but also level of coverage which has been steadily declining of late.

Meanwhile our pockets are getting picked from so many angles, it’s hard not to get distracted by one, while the other attacks.

I’m Scott Thompson.
