Flaherty takes credit for our banking system


Apparently our Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is taking credit for the Canadian banking system where our five monopolistic banks have to maintain set ratios to remain sanctioned.

The rules have been there long before Flaherty even started screwing up Ontario's finances.

This is basically the same as Tony Clement our Minister Heath taking credit for universal health care.

Anyway in typical Flaherty style he then placed his other foot in his mouth by taking a shot at the other industrialized countries as he was a boarding a plane to meet with them at an emergency G7 meeting.
“I can say with confidence (to) Canadians that today our financial institutions are well-capitalized in Canada, which cannot be said in a number of another countries in the world,” he assured reporters in Toronto.
Sorry Jim, somehow this week’s 1% increase in my TD equity loan or the fact that banks aren’t lending money to anybody, might be the real problem here and I don't really think the G7 appreciate your smugness either.

Please Oshawa, your country needs you. Vote this clown out of office, our country's finances depend upon it.

Vote ABC.

The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.

Surprising how some tunes are just timeless
