HOT lanes: Liberals using green to fool you...

Dec 8, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

It wasn’t that long ago you’re Ontario Liberals paid millions to widen sections of the QEW.

After spending your millions for the reno, only those with two people or more in the vehicle were allowed to use the new lanes.

So basically families in mini vans or those already travelling in a group.

The reasons they gave at the time; it was good for the environment by encouraging car-pooling.  You know, the green thing to do.

But when no one really used them, and the Toronto Pan Am HOV lanes created chaos, the Liberals thought to move to plan B.

Since driving patterns are not really changing (because no one has built transit for decades) why not just charge Ontarians for something that was already theirs in the first place, but was taken away?

Please don’t accuse me of not being green, that’s not the issue.

It’s about trusting the Liberals with your money to make the right decision, no matter what the issue.

I simply don’t trust the Liberals to have thought any of this through any more than they did when they over payed for green electricity by $37 billion (according the Auditor General).

Why would this be any different?

I'll handle the lights....

Dec 7, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

This was the perfect weekend to put up the Christmas lights.

And you could tell by the amount of ladders on front lawns that’s what was happening.

That may also be visible in emergency rooms as some forgot the last step.

I realized this weekend, other than lighting the CHML Tree of Hope every year, putting up the lights is my favourite pre-holiday ritual.

Even when my arms get a rash from scraping the pine needles.

And any guy will tell you, a bad day on the ladder even when its freezing cold, is way better than a good day at the mall.

Thanks to all who made contribution to the CHML Tree of Hope during our blitz weekend tree lighting and at Limeridge Mall.

There is still lots of time to make a donation to the CHML Children’s Fund or drop off a new unwrapped toy.

All the details at www.900chml.com  and thank you!

I’m Scott Thompson.

CHML Christmas Tree of Hope

Dec 4, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Premier Wynne bought us the Cadillac system of green electrical energy, we are congratulated for the steps we have taken to help the environment.

The only problem is, she over paid for that Cadillac by $37 billion.

This is not about being green, this is about over paying and spending $37 million more than you had too.

Imagine how many toys we could have purchased for the CHML Christmas Tree of Hope for that kind of money.

Think how much food we could have purchased, school supplies, clothes, education for our young and even homes.

Despite feeling helpless at the hands of government, we are not helpless to help those who need a hand up in our community.

The CHML Christmas Tree of Hope has raised over $5 million for children’s charity in Hamilton and surrounding areas since 1976.

Help us light it up in Gore Park this afternoon.

Ascot Royals have a free concert for us then at 6pm we flip the switch.

Help us, help the kids….

I’m Scott Thompson.

Auditor General confirms, Liberals are ripping you off...

Dec 3, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

The auditor general revealed that Premier Wynnes Liberal green energy plan is just another excuse to rip Ontarians blind.

A.G. Bonnie Lysyk said taxpayers forked over ‘$37 billion MORE than necessary’ (spending money they didn’t have too) from 2006 to 2014 on electricity, while energy prices soared over 70%.

That never ending green story about how Nanny Wynne wants to leave a healthy planet for her granddaughter is just a pile of crap.

This has absolutely nothing to do with being green or saving the planet.

This is simply shoddy financial mismanagement and a huge waste of billions of dollars that the Liberals have ‘over paid’.

The real bad news is your Liberals will cost you an additional $133 billion by 2032 due to the mismanagement of your money on the energy file, all for nothing.

The A.G. also said that the upgrades to the energy infrastructure many Liberals have used as an excuse to suck you dry, have NOT even been done.

To make matters worse, this is the last time the auditor general will examine Hydro One’s books because it has now been privatized, adding further secrecy to this madness.

I can’t wait to pull the plug on this pack of Liberal liars.

However, I also blame the opposition just as much, for not offering us anything in the way of an alternative to these old worn out bandits...

I’m Scott Thompson.

Isn't taxi hunger strike against Uber a little over the top???

Dec 2, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

We have all heard the debate between taxi drivers and Uber over their operation in any given city.

Clearly the playing field needs to be leveled, making the competition fair for everyone, while still providing a safe reliable service for customers.

That will take movement from both parties as this technology driven model is not going away.

This week a few taxi operators are holding a hunger strike camped out at Toronto city hall.

Aren’t hunger strikes reserved for extreme situations usually involving human rights?

Does anyone else think the protest does not fit the cause, and this is a little over the top?

I understand drivers may be losing their livelihood but is this any different than the evolution of say, milk or mail delivery?

I have been fired 5 times, I never ever once thought of camping out on my employer’s front lawn and starving myself for the job.

In the end, this may make more people roll their eyes, than gather support.

Not because the cause is not worthy, but for the extreme measures that they are taking for something that has affected everyone, in every line of work.

That being progress.

Welcome to the next millennium.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Do you want to be a Canadian, or not?

Dec 1, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

One of Canada's newest citizens has taken the right our country has afforded him to publically trash our countries history.

The new Canadian renounced his oath to the Queen moments after swearing his allegiance to the monarch during a citizenship ceremony.

The University of Toronto prof says, “For me, this is reminiscent of 1515 not 2015.”

For me, I wonder if this new citizen fully appreciates the freedom that allows him to do such a thing, and still be a citizen.

The reality is, it’s not 1515 and most Canadians appreciate their history rather than try to remove it for their own personal agenda.

Like a lot of people nowadays, he feels entitled to the privilege, and yet disrespectful of the history or those who fought for it.

I’m not sure why he has such a mad on for royalty, and frankly, don’t care.

Just like he does not care about our traditions or history.

He feels strongly that the country should respect his view while he has none for the history of the country.

But I’m sure he also feels he knows more than you do too.

 I’m tired of those who demand our respect, but give us none.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Happy 50th Charlie Brown!

Nov 30, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Here’s something that will make you feel old….

‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ turns 50 this year.

It was Christmas of 1965 the Charles Schultz classic aired for the very first time.

How do you celebrate a special? You have a special.

It was a monumental tradition for every kid of that era to watch this, plus Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the Grinch.

If you’re a fan of ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown’ you’ll be celebrating that 50 next fall.

I’m not sure it’s still that big of an occasion, considering kids today have so many options.

They can watch what they want, when they want.

For us if you missed it, you had to wait until next year.

My kids still watch it, but then again, that might be because I still do.

It airs tonight on TV, if you can’t find the file, disc, or even VCR.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Origins of Black Fridy

Nov 27, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Are you enjoying your Black Friday?

My kids actually asked me at the dinner table why it was called Black Friday.

They thought it had some sort of hocus pocus focus like Halloween.

I explained Black Friday signaled when retailers start to turn a profit during the year.

Occurring the day after the US Thanksgiving, it is their biggest shopping day of the year, as consumers kick off the Christmas buying season.

It is when retailers move out of the red and into the black. From debt, to profit.

The bigger the holiday shopping season, the more profitable the year...

Black Friday has grown every year since the 1970’s until last year, when sales were actually down from year to year in the U.S.

Not because consumers weren’t spending, but because retailers looking for a head start, are offering deep discounts earlier in the year.

Also the growth of Cyber Monday online sales are increasingly stealing thunder.

This morning my wife and daughter were out of the house by 6am.

To me that is just sad.  Helmets on!!!

I’m Scott Thompson.

University of Ottawa student union bans yoga class. What's next, dancing???

Nov 26, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

The University of Ottawa student union (SFUO) is facing a backlash for its politically correct ban on yoga.

The free yoga class, which has been offered for years, was cancelled due to ‘cultural appropriation’.

That’s the adoption of an element of one’s culture, into another’s, that in some way diminishes the originating culture.

“Yoga has been under a lot of controversy lately due to how it is being practiced and what cultures they are being taken from” (which are often sacred spiritual practices), says the school.

The instructor said it’s about stretching, nothing spiritual, and offered to change the name of the class. Didn’t matter.

 “This is about a culture-wide problem of accommodation gone awry,” she said.

The reason this story is generating interest, the yogi says is, “people are pushed to a point that this-accommodating whining people for no good reason- has just gone too far.”

When I asked the instructor how many complaints they had regarding the class she said, one.

This is why religion has no place in the laws and procedures of the land, and modern governments are secular.

It can be interpreted in so many different ways, that even yoga is banned.

What’s next? Dancing?

I’m Scott Thompson.

Trudeau finally admits, he's just not ready, for 25,000 refugees by years end

Nov 25, 2015 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

The federal government has relaxed the timeline in its mad dash to process 25,000 refugees before the end of the year.

With the reduction Canadians will welcome 10,000 refugees by the year end, the rest coming by the end of February 2016.

The obvious reason for the change of heart?

Oddly enough, we’re simply not ready!

This from a security and humanitarian perspective.

There was never any reason for the Trudeau self-imposed deadline, other than a hasty promise made during the heat of an election campaign.

Thank goodness he put the country ahead of his character challenge.

I’m sure both sides will put their spin on his refugee deadline extension, but there is no need to do so when someone does the right thing.

Let’s give him credit for the maturity.

Lesson learned here for our new PM Trudeau?

Don’t over sell something, the majority of Canadians know you can’t deliver, especially when it’s not in the best interest of the country.

The election is over, you have a majority, just tell it like it is…..
