Hydro One is wrong

Sometimes very late at night, unable to sleep, usually full of self pity and scotch, to the point that I can no longer follow the storyline on any of the Netflix series I am following, I find myself aimlessly wandering through the time killing sites, the latest move clip sites, unblocked Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman episodes and finally before I pass out, news bloopers.

I find  the gaffes, miscues, asking Mike Tyson if his rape convictions might hurt Rob Ford’s chances for reelection and then being surprised at the response, hilarious, but what I don’t understand are the clips of some asshole running up to some reporter to shout some obscenity. It is not a blooper, it is not funny, it is just crude, juvenile profanity for which the perpetrator and their actions should shunned, not heralded.

So when the CITY TV reporter went after the bystanders that were egging on one of their friends to shout an obscenity into her microphone at a soccer game, she was doing us all a favour and by filming and posting their failed attempt to justify their laughing at the incident, she thoroughly embarrassed both individuals.

However the crude juvenile actions of these two individuals in responding to the reporter was not sexual harassment and definitely not harassment in the workplace and does not warrant being fired by their employer.

Hydro One has overstepped and none us should be supporting their action and if you have a problem with that, take it up with Fern Hill at Dammit Janet.

662

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. 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
