Are they running for their lives?

A new Reuter/IPSO poll reveals nearly half of all Canadians (48%) believe illegal immigrants crossing into Canada from the United States should be sent back to the U.S.

We all know every case is different and should be evaluated on its own merit.

But our country is filled with stories of immigrants who came here legally from all over the world, played by the rules, and created a good life for themselves and society.

The line forms to the right every year, as we welcome over 250,000 doing the same thing.

To give those who have jumped the que special opportunity is un Canadian.

We have to remember these people are welcome in America and have permission to be there.

They may be running from the Trump politics of the day, but they are not running for their lives as refugees are.

Here ‘s hoping soon PM Justin Trudeau will provide some money and responsible leadership, as well as just open arms, and a selfie...

Donald Trump: The boy that cries wolf!

Mar 21, 2017 5:00 AM

How does America (and the world) deal with a president who they cannot trust to tell the truth?

How do they deal with a president who keeps the country in a constant state of confusion?

Yesterday FBI Director James Comey was instructed by the Department of Justice to clarify a couple of questions.

His answer was,

-The FBI is investigating Russian interference with the U.S. Election and also investigating whether Donald Trump or his posse was involved.

-Also, There is no evidence to suggest former President Barack Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower as the president accused in a Tweet.

Presidential Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the President will not apologize for his unproven comments claiming the investigation is ongoing, which it is.

I guess, assuming there will eventually be proof Trump was ‘wire tapped’ by Obama and he will be cleared of the Russian accusations.

No matter who you believe, we must remember.

Trump is now president. He is the boss.  He can no longer say ‘they’ are out to get him. He is ‘they’.

He is now leader of the swamp he was going to clear.

He has ALL the answers to ALL the questions and confusion he creates. He is running the show!

Sooner or later he will have to take responsibility for his actions and what comes out of his lose mouth.

Until then, he is just another spoiled entertainer who cries wolf.

Bye Bye Johnny B. Goode

Mar 20, 2017 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

This past weekend one of the pioneers of rock n’ roil died.

Legendary rocker Chuck Berry passed away at age 90.

He shaped pop music for decades influencing everyone from the Beatles to Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen.

I remember hearing my first Chuck Berry song (Johnny B. Goode) as a kid 20 years after it was a hit.

Instead of being like most kids following the trend of the day, I was going backwards deeper into rhythm and blues and the infancy of the genre.

I was lucky enough to see him live when he was still in his prime and commanded an audience like the icon he was.

When being inducted into the Rock n’ Roll hall of fame in 1987 a modest Berry said,

“It’s not me to toot my horn.” “The minute you toot your horn, it seems like society will try and disconnect your battery.

And if you do not toot your horn, they’ll try their darnedest to give you a horn to toot, or say that you should have a horn.”

“It’s them that creates the demand, so let them toot the horn.”

Wise words we could all learn from.

Amanda Todd, never forgotten

Mar 17, 2017 5:00 AM

Carol Todd, the mother of Amanda Todd who at 15 took her own life after being cyber bullied, has had to face her daughter’s death again.

The person charged in relation to Amanda’s death has just been handed a sentence of over ten years in the Netherlands on multiple extortion and child porn charges.

Carol was there when the trial began that included over 40 victims.

Her hopes are he will stand trial here as well.

I can’t image the pain of losing a child but Carol takes comfort in knowing Amanda’s last video has been viewed millions of times and will continue until the end of time.

Each time a message is sent confirming what is right and wrong in the world.

It’s as if Amanda was put here to teach us all the face of bullying and inspire us to be better.

Carol's convinced if the awareness was there when Amanda needed it she would still be here today…..

It certainly doesn’t bring Amanda back, but she must be so proud of what her daughter’s legacy has become.

And how it helps someone, somewhere, every day.

Colonoscopy: The ulimate selfie!

Mar 16, 2017 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

I’m tired of ranting about politicians in this space, but I’m not straying too far from what some may call an obvious comparison.

Let’s talk about your rear end. Your arse!

Hamilton Health Sciences, Gastroenterologist, Dr. Barry Lumb live streamed a colonoscopy on Facebook yesterday.

His goal, to draw more attention to colon cancer and the pre-emptive procedure that can save your life.

Whether it’s a, “positive poop test or because you have a family history” hopefully more are “willing to come along and have it done” says the Doctor and “prevent something bad down the line.”

You know you’re getting old when you’re talking about this stuff.  

Not so fast those with a stylish millennial bum.

There is new evidence this affects your demographic too.

As far as the starring patient, who has a family history with the disease, the Doc said he was in good shape after a polyp was removed and happy to share his story with everyone.

Story, wow! He has shared more than that!

He has shared the ultimate selfie!

Even the PM hasn’t done that!

Snow day pics, and not one 'selfie'

Mar 15, 2017 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Our multi-faceted news room compiled some cool pics from our social media feeds of Hamiltonians enjoying their snow day yesterday.

You can follow the story and images on our website.

So what do people take pictures of during a snow storm?

Snowy roadways, doorways, and drives.

Snowy cars, trucks, trikes and bikes.

Snowy trees, decks and fences.

Snowy patio furniture and BBQ’s

Snowy birds, dogs and deer.

What is the first thing I noticed was ‘missing’ in this great collection of photos?

Not one selfie, or picture of food!

Kudos to nature.

It made most realize the beauty (this time) was in the scene, not the subject standing in front of it.

That doesn’t happen very often today.

Have university's become helecopter parents?

Mar 14, 2017 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Remember when university was a place where you were encouraged to explore new alternative ideas?

Challenge the norm, think outside the box?

Where debate was often, sometimes loud, but always respected.

Where free speech was promoted and we could agree to disagree.

Carleton University has removed scales from their fitness facility because your weight, “does not provide a good indication of health and, here at Athletics, we have chosen to move away from focusing solely on body weight.”

That may be true but isn’t a weigh scale one of the tools everyone should have access too at a university gym?

I can completely understand the point that there they are trying to make.

My question is, why did they feel it was up to them to make that decision for everyone?

For some it may be the motivation behind their goal.

Because the university feels it is morally right, it has forced its view on everyone who attends the gym.

That hardly seems like an environment that nurtures free flowing thought.

It sounds more like a helicopter parent.

Happy 'Nap' Day!!!

Mar 13, 2017 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

It is the first working day after a time change weekend, how are you feeling?

Hey! Are you listening to me??

Over here, on your radio or favourite device.

We all heard the stats going into the weekend; today would be filled with accidents of every kind, even heart attacks.

I’m surprised you even got out of bed today. You are out of bed aren’t you?

And where did Sunday go?

By the time I figured out want I wanted for breakfast, it was diner time.

On the positive, you don’t have to feel bad about dragging your rear end today, because everyone is.

Perhaps we should create another day for right after the time change weekend, and call it ‘Nap’.

Happy Nap Day!

Spoiled Ontario's first world problems

Mar 10, 2017 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

On the show yesterday we talked about the pig lady trial, our self-inflicted soaring electricity rates, and Muslims.

I find it hard to believe in a world of problems these are the biggest issues that are concerning Ontarians.

How first world of us.

We have no one to blame for our self-inflicted soaring electricity rates but ourselves for electing a government who said they were going to do just that, despite their lack of due diligence.

You voted to save the planet on the backs of Ontarians, no matter the cost.

We let people who believe pigs are equal to humans, clog up our court system while their costs are paid by goofy celebrities who believe in their cause.

The rest comes from you the taxpayer.

We have another group who is fighting over each other’s religion.

Of all the things to fight and kill over, is it really worth debating ones spiritual belief if they are obeying the law?

Thank God, or someone, we have clearer heads in the majority that follow the law of the land instead of these individual causes of the day.

Maybe instead of lashing out or blaming each other, we should look at ourselves and ask, what are our priorities?

And hopefully move onto something more important, instead of jumping on the latest activist first world cause.

Relax: Religion is a belief, not the law

Mar 9, 2017 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

I can’t believe some of the narrow minded, extremist responses I received after airing our ‘ask a Muslim’ feature.

A spokesperson from ‘Islam Understood’ was on to answer questions and help non-Muslims understand some of the misconceptions about the religion.

After fielding calls I quickly realized this was not about understanding Islam.

But a chance for those from other religions to compare theirs to Islam.

I am not religious in any way. I am not religious scholar. It does not rule my life.

But what I do know is we all have to live in harmony.

Religion is open to interpretation.

And most will interpret it differently depending upon their own ideology.

That is why law separates itself from religion.

The law rules, not religion.

There are extremist examples in any religion.

Some use that as a vehicle for their hate.

In the end, it is a belief.

And in this country you are entitled to believe as long as you obey the law.

Can we now move on?

I’m Scott Thompson.
