Nice article; however, some un-mentioned items; When, going by past
performance in the power business, look for outside
influence in the form of 5th column. When, as mentioned by the Auditor
General, the ranks swell and the pension rates go nuts, it  can
sometimes  means people are being bought, rather than paid, using
tax-payers money. Look for Enron similarities, with commodities trading
and such. Don't let the future descendants say their was a 'failure of
imagination' on the part of those who were supposed to be watching,
including the public, like happened with Goldman-Sachs and the mortgage
scam!
Note please, the part that says OEB doesn't regulate the corporate,
private entities, but the OPA does, and they are corporate as well and
they get taxpayers money to operate, and fees through the government but
are 'ARM'S LENGTH FROM GOVERNANCE'.  Worse still, this is happening
all over the world.
The fox, baby, is looking after the hen house, and the corporate 'god' is
money so they hate regulation that stands in the way of maximized
profits. (John Kenneth Galbraith, 'Economics and the Public Purpose.'

Wind and solar can meet all of
Canada's energy needs
Re "Stop making green power the
scapegoat," by Tim Gray (Dec. 17).
Tim Gray is absolutely right when he says: "The real reason
electricity bills in Ontario are on the rise is our overbuilt and
unreliable nuclear system (with Pickering A being the most expensive
nuclear plant to operate in North America)." After the catastrophic
nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan, it is clear that nuclear power
plants are not only expensive to build, they are also a threat to life
and environment. Japan used to rely on nuclear power, but after the
accident, it has shut down all its 50 nuclear power plants.
We should subsidize wind and solar power, because they are clean and pose
no threat to the environment. Canada vast empty areas are ideally suited
to both wind and solar energy to provide all its energy needs through a
national grid system. When the sun is setting in Halifax, it is still
shinning in Vancouver. And wind is always blowing somewhere even though
it has died down in some parts. Ontario must end its parasitic dependence
on nuclear power which is fraught with catastrophic consequences. A
catastrophic nuclear accident in the wake of an earthquake or tornado or
fire, might devastate Canada's biggest city -- Toronto. It is time to
learn from Fukushima.

According to your editorial, James Moore is right when he says the
issue of hungry children is one for provincial jurisdiction. But on
November 24th 1989, Canada's House of Commons passed a unanimous
all-party resolution to eliminate child poverty by the year 2000. Twenty
years later, the House passed another unanimous motion to "develop
an immediate plan to eliminate poverty in Canada for all".
The Sun should get its facts right, and stop excusing the
inexcusable. And James Moore, a cabinet minister from the province with
the highest level of child poverty, should lobby his government to stop
abdicating its responsibilities, and to get on with a poverty reduction
plan with clear, measurable standards and adequate funding.

Subject: To understand roots of Quebec's paranoia, look at
Ireland
The Editor
The Gazette, Montreal
 
Copy to: Ms Celine Cooper, Columnist for The Gazette.
               
 
To understand roots of Quebec's
paranoia, look at Ireland
 
Re "Overcoming phobia -- of any kind," by Celine Cooper (Dec.
16).
 
Celine Cooper might have missed the broader picture when she writes:
"The campaign [against francophobie] did not originate in Ontario or
New Brunswick, where francopones are in the minority. It began in Quebec,
where the francophones are a powerful majority population." Athough
they are in the majority in Quebec, seven million francophones live
next-door to 350 million English-speaking Americans whose language and
culrure permeate the entire Canadian society. To understand how fragile
is the French language and culture in Quebec, a look at Ireland may be in
order.
 
From before the time of Christ until about the middle of the 19th
century, the language of Ireland was Gaelic. But then came the Great
Famine of the mid-1800, and the need survive economically by forging
closer ties with Ireland's prosperous colonial overlord -- England and
need to learn the language of the dominant majority. Today, while Gaelic,
or simply Irish, as it is called in the republic, is defined in the
constitution as the country's "first official language," only
about 3 per cent of Ireland's 3.5 million speak it as their primary
tongue.
 
"Seoin mentality" is blamed for the demise of Irish in Ireland.
Seonin (pronounced SHOW-neen) is a Gaelic word indicating a preference
for the English language. The word is based on Sean, the Gaelic for John,
as in John Bull.
 
"Speaking Irish used to be considered terribly old-fashioned,
associated with poverty," said Katie Verling, the marketing director
for Telegael. "Kids were ashamed of their Irish-speaking parents.
The parents wanted them to concentrate on English."
 
Although French in Quebec has not reached that stage, it remains
extremely fragile. Seven million francophones in Quebec are not only a
minority vis a vis 23 million English speakers in Canada, they also live
next-door 350 English-speaking Americans whose language and culture
dominate the entire continent. The economic and cultural dominance of the
English-speaking Americans makes the francophones extremely vulnerable.
 
The greatest danger is that, given the primordial importance of English
in North America, the Quebecers might abandon French for economic reasons
in the same way the Irish abandoned Gaelic for economic reasons. As such,
the francophones in Quebec will always need some conscious efforts to the
protect its French language and culture in the English-speaking sea of
North America. The anglophones in Quebec and rest of Canada should
understand this.

CPP reform rhetoric
Posted: 16 Dec 2013 12:06 PM PST
Since there is a significant meeting among Canadian finance ministers
today, where reform to the Canada Pension Plan is on the agenda, it's
worth pointing out some really unhelpful ongoing language
the federal Finance Minister is using to describe CPP. This is what
he said today to describe CPP:
"CPP is a tax on people who work, a tax on employers. It takes
money directly out of the economy, so it's not something to be done
lightly. It's something that must be done with consideration and
thought," he said.
This framing of CPP, a valued Canadian program that is the backbone
of our savings retirement, as just another vile tax should be countered.
Here's one :
There is not a shred of credible empirical evidence to support
assertions CPP contributions amount to a payroll tax and a job killer.
CPP contributions, like all contributions to any pension plan, are
deferred wages. Calling an employer's pension contribution a payroll tax
is disingenuous, if not an outright deception.
Deferred wages. Savings investments. A retirement worth paying
for.
Or choose whatever else you'd like to call it to accurately describe the
value and positive association most Canadians would have in their minds
to ascribe to CPP.
The Conservatives are masters of dumbing down issues into these
convenient ideological talking points. The facts are that people are not
saving, there are a growing number of provinces getting behind expanded
CPP for such reasons, and Canada's economy - as the Conservatives enjoy
telling us - is one of those to be envied among world nations.
We should be tackling pension reform and hopefully, in the long term, if
serious people keep speaking up, the need to address this issue will
trump the rhetoric.
Just a thought - would using CPP contributions for infrastructure
rather than banks' monies put us ahead or behind ?

Pardon me James, no ones asking you to. What is worse is I am sure he
is not the only Conservative caucus member to feel this way, just
the only one stupid enough to say so out loud! But in your capacity
as a federal minister of The Crown, you'd think you'd have

the radiation from Fukishima but we are being poisoned daily by this
action by the government controlled dumping of this sewage.  And we
should remember that these artificial sweeteners are also dangerous to
our health.

Joe--how appropriate that we have a Human Rights Museum.  Sadly
that is the only place that human rights now exist in Canada.  We
have no rights left in Canada so they will be housed with all other
artifacts in Canada???

How to save Canada Post
http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2013/12/16/ethan-cox-how-to-save-canada-post/
The post office is a money-losing enterprise, beset by declining
mail volume and, as both the Crown Corporation and the minister
responsible, Lisa Raitt, have said, these changes were necessary to avoid
the post office becoming a drain on the taxpayer.
Does the above statement by Rutt mean that we will soon see them get rid
of the government?  There is no bigger drain on the taxpayer than
governments.

James Moore apologizes after child poverty comment lands him hot
water
This bloated piece of garbage should be kicked to the curb asap.  He
doesn't give a damn that kids are starving in Canada.  His only
concern is that people will hold him accountable for what he said. 
If he was in the least concerned wouldn't he at least put some of his
loot from the taxpayer towards helping feed kids.  He has no concept
of what many Canadians are going through.  The government just grabs
whatever they want, make laws that consign more and more people to the
garbage heap, and keep on thieving and slurping at the trough.  We
helped kill Gadhaffi, a man that was an example to the world on how a
government should care for their people, while families in Canada are
living on the edge. 
I remember when my kids were in public school I would walk them to the
bus stop where other kids were waiting for the school bus.  One day
there were two little girls there.  They were both eating mustard
sandwiches(packed for their lunch at school) because the were hungry and
had not had any breakfast.  This was at least 20 years ago and
things have only gotten worse today.  Our government takes our taxes
because 'they are looking out for the people' but  all they care
about is living high on the hog themselves.  We are modern feudal
serfs and do nothing to change this situation.

Moore has killed ambitions he had for Prime Minister.
