Will your kids have what you do?

A great number of Canadians come from families where at least one of their parents emigrated from another country.

Mine is no different.

Most couldn’t finish high school and had to work to provide a living for their families in jobs prosperous Canada.

Watching my parents slug it out in factories all their lives made me want more.

My generation was the first in our family to complete high school and go on to a post-secondary education.

And if you compared my parent’s life to that of their parents, they did better than theirs too.

Each generation has built on the foundation the previous has laid for them.

Fast forward to today where most millennials don’t think they will attain what their parents have.

How can that be?

It’s time all leaders, whether business or political realize the impact this will have on society, before they have a full-fledged revolt on their hands.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Energy rates trump healthcare, education and jobs, in Wynne's Ontario

Jan 17, 2017 5:00 AM

I believe Canadians have reached a tipping point, Ontarians certainly have.

Confirming this is hearing that woman near Peterborough plead her case of survival in Wynne’s Ontario to PM Justin Trudeau on his ‘selfie esteem’ tour.

She cried she can’t keep her family afloat with soaring electricity rates, and now cap & trade..

He responded saying electricity is a provincial concern and his cap & trade hasn’t kicked in yet.

AS if that washes his elite hands of her common plight.

The truth is Ontarians are now more concerned about their energy bills, and losing their standard of living, then they are anything else.

Energy costs have become a bigger issue than:

-healthcare

-education

-creating jobs and growing the economy

Everyone wants to save the planet, but clearly it appears the Liberals have a different stake in the game than the rest of us.

It’s less about the environment, and more of a fund raiser, for them.

After all, it’s not like we’re face mask wearing China who can’t see past their nose for smog.

Take the lights down...

You’ve been putting it off long enough and with temperatures above normal this week there is no way you cannot do it…

Of course I’m talking about the ceremonial ‘taking down’ of the Christmas lights.

They seem to go up with such vim and vigor.

Now it’s, ‘oh yeah, I gotta do that don’t I?’

It’s like paying the Visa bill after Christmas.

The fun is over, now the consequences.

And where are the kids when its tear down time?

I’ve never heard them so quiet. Are they even here?

Who’s says making the mess is more fun than cleaning it up?

They come down faster than they go up.

If you need more incentive to get the lights down just try a quick look at you latest bill for Wynne’s Ontario.

That will darken any holiday spirit.

I’m Scott Thompson.
