Only in Harperland

Only in HarperLand would the first governmental report on impending environmental threats be that... we should cut down our boreal forests.

For ideologys sake take this nitro into the cave

Under this year's omnibus bill, "the Minister of Labour will now have the legal right to dismiss any safety complaint that results in a worker refusing to work and to do so without any investigation".

According to the article, no employer has ever called for these changes or even raised them for discussion, but the ministry believes the changes will streamline the workplace safety system.

The bobble heads at city hall

Apparently there will be one thousand of these at the Toronto city hall next week. The Mayor's Office  is selling them as part of it's united way campaign.

With the revelations this week they might reconsider the model and the charity.

Lesbian ball busting house of horrows

Personally I thought, the manly man, men, at the Toronto Sun would be more terrified about word of the Gay Gouls in Guelph* house but who knows.

* In full disclosure, the "Gay Goulds in Guelph" is a figment of my imagination as opposed to the "Lesbian ball busting on the government dime" is a figment of the Toronto's Sun, which does mean that I am not one of the manly men that the Sun apparently thinks we all must be, unless you are either a subsereviante female or obviously a ball busting lesbians which apparently is the subject of this post.

The insipid superiority of an ongoing inferiority complex

Apparently our 99 senators spent over 1,000,000 dollars in travel during a period of time (March 26th to June 1st) covering the last May election. Forty Six of those senators spent more than double what they normally spent during that period, although no total for those particular senators was provided.
The Senate spent more than $1-million to pay for Senators to travel between Ottawa and their regions during a period that covered the May 2011 election, according to online expenditure reports which also show that 46 Senators received reimbursements at least double their average quarterly travel amounts. 

In all, 26 Liberal Senators and 20 Conservative Senators were reimbursed twice as much than their personal average for travel during the March 1 to May 31, 2011 quarterly period when there were 11 Senate sitting days. Parliament was dissolved between March 26 and June 1 for the 41st general election which took place on May 2, 2011. During this period, the Senate also reimbursed members $415,000 for travel outside of the national capital region, totaling $1.15-million for all travel.
Which sadly becomes 26 Liberal senators and 20 Conservative senators spent over 1,000,000.
