October 2014

Like it or not Canada, we're now 'all in'...

Yesterday was the ‘end of the innocence’ for our generation of Canadians.

This after a terror attack on our Parliament Buildings in Ottawa that saw Hamiltonian Corporal Nathan Cirillo, reservist and member of the Argylls of Canada (91st Canadian Highlanders regiment), gunned down in cold blood at the War Memorial.

Some may say the innocence was lost two days earlier when two soldiers were mowed over by a lunatic in a car outside a military centre in Quebec. One soldier dying from his injuries.

Post 9/11 we all wondered, where, when, what is next?

As Canadians we wondered, when us?

Well like it or not Canada, we’re now all in. 

Not because we sent fighter jets to join the coalition forces, but because we have an enemy who hates everyone who is not like them.

It’s ISIS against the world.  And as part of that world we can do two things.

Fight or flee.

I don’t think there are too many Canadians willing to give up what they’ve got due to some uncivilized barbarians.

The loss of innocence has turned to bravery.  And like with our ancestors before us, goodness will survive.

I’m Scott Thompson.

"Why should I vote for you?" Ward 11.

We are on a 2 show winning streak in our ongoing series, “Why should I vote for you?” and have a 3rd confirmed.

The show designed to introduce you to your city councillor and their challengers, has had an incumbent councillor show up two days in a row.

This after none, zero, zippo, of the Hamilton incumbent city councillors from the old city showed up on The Scott Thompson Show to talk to you their constituents. (That’s Wards 2, 4,5,6,7, and 8)

Why it is the suburban or rural city councillors show up and the old inner city councillor’s run away scared making up any reason not to show, if they even return our calls?

With no sign of a city councillor until we got to Ward 10, it makes you wonder what kind of puppet show we have going on in the chambers and who’s the head Pinocchio.

With the first two incumbents brave enough to show being women, it certainly does confirm we have an old boys club down there (albeit neutered).

Clearly the web councillors in Wards 8 and under have spun does not extend to or influence the common sense of those outside the old city.

But they do influence enough to sway any vote in their favour, until now.

With the vacancy of courageous councillors like Brian McHattie, Brad Clark (who are running for mayor) and the passing of Bernie Morelli hopefully the new blood from attrition isn’t poisoned by this controlling mediocrity.

But only you can change things…

"Why should I vote for you?" Ward 10.

We had to go through 10 out of 15 Wards in the city before we found 1 incumbent councillor who was brave enough to come on The Scott Thompson Show and answer your questions on “Why should I vote for you?”

The ongoing series was designed to introduce you to your councillor and their challengers in your ward.

Oddly enough while the inner city councillors are refusing to come on and talk to voters, it took Maria Pearson, a councillor from Stoney Creek to make it happen.

It seems only the councillors from outside the old city are prepared to discuss the issues, while the inner city councillors run and hide hoping you vote for them by name recognition alone.

It also proves the councillors from outside the old city base their decisions on their constituents not on what the old boys club tells them in the lower city.

Although the poison in Wards 2, 4, and 5 has spread to the mountain including Wards 6, 7, and 8, they have not succeeded in bullying the rural wards.

Unfortunately they control the numbers to force the real change that is needed in these lower puppet wards.

Unless you vote them out.

I would suggest a total house cleaning of the old boys club puppet show in Wards 1-8.  Two will change due to attrition anyway.

That’s the only way we’ll see real change in Hamilton, as those few, are running the circus.
