ANDREA HORVATH / NEW TARGET FOR TONIGHT / THE PAPERS ARE DONE WITH CRUCIFYING ALLISON REDFORD / NOW IT’S ANDREA’S TURN 31/03/14

I read a piece about Andrea Horwath [ NDP Leader ] in the Toronto Star [ misleading / as usual ]. It was by Martin Cohn. Marty was brought in by the Paper especially to polish up devious Dalt McGunity’s fast fading reputation. The Dalt has been involved in criminal activity himself for years. As well he has given the Liberal Party machine and his friends access to the public purse. Eventually McGuinty’s schemes began to unravel and even John Honderich and his Star, paid as they were by the Liberal party machine could no longer cover up. Dalton ended up trapped like the rat. He did what all little men do when confronted, the McGuint ran away, just like Mike Harris. Dalton is now hiding at Harvard University, Stateside. A Toronto reporter went down to the University but could not find the Dalt. I saw the President of Harvard being interviewed a week ago. She was extolling the virtues of her University. According to her the institution is the highest of the high. I have my doubts about Harvard seeing as they are giving shelter to a criminal. I wonder how much in the way of stolen tax dollars is McGuinty paying for room and board? Cohn, when King Dalt fled just changed gears. Marty began attacking Hudak and Horwath. There was never a word about the mess Dalton had left. You see, the Star is paid by the Liberal Party machine to provide favourable coverage. Telling the truth doesn’t make Honderich any money. John is well experienced. He has been taking money from McGuinty and the nukies, since at least 2003 to print nuclear propaganda. The Dalt and the nukies together have destroyed the Ontario economy. Our KW prices are now the highest in the world. And the Liberal machine and McGuinty’s friends are stripping the last of the flesh from this Province’s bones. But from Honderich we get nothing but attacks on the PCs and NDP. This in an attempt to maintain the status quo. Those who are now making big money off the taxpayers don’t want the party to end. The great and greedy, by giving Honderich a cut means he will continue to misinform the public as to why they are now going bankrupt personally. If you are a buyer of the Star, why? Do you really want to see the future for your kids disappear? And to make matter worse by purchasing the Star you are actually paying to be misled and hobbling your chikdren and grandkids. Strange people Tar subscribers, paying to have nooses fashioned for their own necks. Marty Cohn is smooth. And dishonest. If you read him closely, he says one thing and means another. McGuinty stole Ontario’s democratic Assembly and from Cohn, not a word. From Dalt’s other boy, Steve Paikin the same silence. Paikin keeps saying he will tackle any subject. Actually, that is not true. Steve subjects never touch on the Liberals or McGuinty or the important issues which touch all Ontarians, like our costly electrical system. A train wreck created by the nukies. Journalists and the dollar media [ including TVO ] follow the money wherever that takes them. If the insider money sends the media in another direction, away from the interests of the people, so be it? Old Joe Atkinson [ who I worked for ] would be turning over in his grave in response to the rag the Star has become. Honderich’s Paper, 100 years ago, would have been in the running for the yellow journalism award.

*********************************************************

In double checking Marty Cohn’s Star articles about Andrea Horwath I went on to the internet. I take the Star, Globe, Post and Sun. A reading of them tells me what the American oil monopoly and the ultra right are up to. Being a now and always experienced Progressive Conservative I can analyse the righties. They telegraph their moves quite openly, arrogant lot. Their ideology limits them so. World problems and local problems are only solved when we throw everything and the kitchen sink at them. With Harper and his Fascists it is always an unfettered market, lower taxes, smaller government, restricting the rights of citizens and killing social programs. Ronald Reagan preached the same. Margaret Thatcher preached the same. Junior Bush preached the same. The Republicans and their cancerous Tea Party segment preached the same. Mike Harris preached the same, as does Hudak now. All of their preachments over 35 years have never worked for the little people, as lady Black would call us. But all during that time the right wingers themselves have engorged the fruits of our society in which all of us are supposed to share. But we the masses are constantly turned away from the table. The ultraright [ a very small group indeed ] have been trying to take over my Party [ PCs / both Federal and in Ontario ] for more than 25 years. Using unlimited oilie cash put at their disposal. With help from the oil monopoly and the Republicans Harper has succeeded in taking over the National PC Party and hiding the Reform Party within. It is a little like the body snatchers. Harper and Manning when give unlimited oil monopoly money didn’t have the balls to create their own legitimate political party themselves. So Lyin Steve grabbed the National PC governing structure without ever appealing to the rank and file members like me and fitted Himself in. It is a bit like the wolf masquerading as Little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother. Harper is not my kind of Conservative. In fact he is not a Conservative but a Fascist. Steve is aligned with the Tea Party zealots and hides his real agenda from Canadians, saying one thing and doing the opposite. Stevie is too afraid to call a spade a spade. In the Wizard of Oz the little dog Toto runs and pulls back the curtain. And there is the Wizard pulling levers and talking loudly in a microphone. Harper is always in hiding, having his hired thugs do the dirty work. Now Steve has the Ontario PCs under his control. Hudak is just another puppet. Harper doesn’t want the NDP to win in Ontario. I believe Herr Harper will try and steal the Ontario election as he did the Federal election of 2011. Lyin Steve was so afraid that the NDP would win in BC he formed a coalition with Christy Clark on the quiet. The Conservatives in British Columbia were running 23% before the last BC election but only polled 7%. The dollar media said not a word. Now the smear focus is on Andrea Horwath. On the net the first 3 pages or so [ about 30 articles ] on Google were from the oil money media attacking Horwath. Shades of Neil Young. Young said the tar sands [ IT IS NOT OIL, IT IS TAR ] looked like Hiroshima, and it does. In less than a week 25 writers had jumped in, all calling Neil nasty names I listed their names in a previous post. They were all paid by the US oil monopoly. Just a week ago Alison Redford quit as Premier of Alberta. Redford is a fine woman, highly intelligent and a class act. Albertans didn’t deserve her. Danielle Smith is leader of the Wild Oil party. Smith’s background is the University of Calgary and the Fraser Institute both funded by the American oil monopoly. Whenever Smith is interviewed she sounds like Bush Junior with his implanted CD player. Nothing but right wing ideology and babble. But the $ media never asks questions of HER. Danielle gets a free ride like Harper and she knows she will never be challenged. Therefore Smith is emboldened to say stupid stuff. The 25 or so journalists who pilloried Neil Young earlier and the at least 30 who are now smearing Andrea Horwath never have a word to say about the 47 people Herr Harper killed in Lac-Megantic nor the disaster now facing western Grain farmers. Piles of wheat are now stranded in the field under tarps just rotting away. With the cancellation of the Canadian Wheat Board in 2012 by Harper and that mouthy Gerry Ritz the fate of the Western farmers was sealed. Ruination. Before the CWB was killed by Harper, Gerry Ritz had lots to say about the Board. Gerry constantly attacked the CWB. Now with millions of tons of grain sitting in piles with nowhere to go, Ritz has lost his tongue and seems to have vanished from the earth. And the oil $ media has followed suit, they make not a mention of the Megantic 47 nor the surplus Western wheat. Since last summer the American grain companies have made $ 1.3 billion off the backs of our farmers. Yet those who grow the grain have gotten sweet bugger all, this thanks to Harper.

**********************************************************

So let this be a warning to all of you who oppose Herr Harper. If you speak unfavourably of Himself he will sic the Harper press on you or Steve will have Revenue Canada do an audit on you. Shades of tricky Dick Nixon. I think the recent attacks on Premier Redford show you just how much oil money Harper has at his disposal to crucify his opponents. I have a file on Alison Redford going back to her election as Premier. On the run up to the election there was a lot of nasty stuff being said about Redford in the oil press. About a month before the election, I said in one of my posts that Alison’s only supporters seemed to be the people. That proved to be the case. Eight polls showed Danielle Smith and her Wild Oil Party were miles ahead. The Champagne had already started to a few days before the vote as the righties celebrated. Andrew Coyne couldn’t wait. HE like all right wingers was so sure of himself that he wrote a column on the Smith win a couple days ahead of the vote. Andy and his pollster friends had egg all over their faces when Redford won 61 seats to Smith’s 17. Danielle called Albertans stupid. But in defeat, Coyne, the pollsters and Smith did not take responsibility for the outcome like true men. They slithered away. Coyne quietly took his column down off the net. You sure wouldn’t want someone like Andrew guarding your back when the bullets started to fly. Coyne would high tail it over the hill faster then a speeding bullet. The hardright has a propensity for cowardice, Steve Harper, Gerry Ritz and Andrew Coyne included. After Redford won, the attacks on her continued. As a result I started to clip every one of them along with the news about the Albert Tar / Benzine bomb mix. In the last 18 months of article clipping I show [ 8 ] attacks on Redford by the Star, [ 65 ] attacks by the Globe, [ 17 ] attacks by the Post and [ 5 ] attacks by the Sun [ 95 in all ]. It stands to reason someone paid the 50 of so journalists to write all of these pieces? It was the American oil monopoly of course. This does not include Editorials or mentions of Redford in wide ranging articles which included plenty of slams against her as well. During this same period there were 41 articles praising Conrad Black. And absolutely NO articles criticising Herr Harper. In Nazi Germany the press was controlled by force. In Canada the media is controlled by money from the American oil monopoly. What’s the difference??? Oh yes, early on Carol Goar did write a single nice piece about Alison Redford. That’s 95 to one. This conduct by the $ media passes for balance in this totalitarian state. Equipped with the knowledge of the oil monopoly’s smear campaign against Redford I was immediately awakened when the oilies began attacking Neil Young. I clipped every article and it amounted to about 35 articles and Editorials written by about 25 journalists who I named in an earlier post. Those who played a part in ganging up on Alison Redford are Dawn Walton [ Globe ], Carrie Tait [ G ], Josh Wingrove [ G ], Gillian Steward [ Star ], Tom Flanagan [ G ], Jen Gerson [ Post ], Ezra Levant [ Sun ], Jesse Klein [ P ], Kelly McPartland [ P ], Claudia Cattaneo [ P ], Kelly Cryderman [ G ], Mike Milke / Neils Veldhuis / Jason Clemens [ Fraser Institute ], Mary Janigan [ Authoress ], Brian Lilley [ Sun ], Lorne Gunte [ Sun ], Jeffery Jones [ G ] and Konrad Yakabuski [ G ]. Of special mention is Gary Mason, I wrote about Mason in an earlier article. My complaint about his piece at the time was bad writing and misinformation. In this particular recent collection of smears Mason wrote 14 of them. They are dated Dec. 6/12, Sept. 26/13 and 27/13, Feb. 7/14 and 28/14, March 14/14, another on 14/14, 15/14, 20/14, 21/14, another on 21/14, 22/14, another on 22/14 and 28/14. You will note Mason began to intensify his attacks on Redford in Fed and March 2014 as the Alberta PC caucus [pantywaists all ] began to lose their nerve because of the continuing assault on Redford. Not one of her PCs stood up likea man to defend her. As I do with all the journalists who write for the American oil monopoly and the ultraright I check backgrounds. Most of those above are young with no credentials. How could so many writers say the same stupid things at precisely the same time? They lack experience and perspective but they and their newspapers are convinced that YOU ARE STUPID ENOUGH TO FALL FOR THIS GARBAGE. ARE YOU??? It is obvious that when youthful writers from different papers say the same things these campaigns are coming out of some central oilie office in Calgary. Do you want to live your life based on copy that comes from the US oil monopoly? So if you buy any of the newspapers listed above welcome to Harperland. In terms of Mason, he lives in BC, he worked for the Sun early on and is now with the Globe and Tar. I did not read Gary often, I could never figure out where he was coming from. His work is described as banal, I would agree. Mason is like so many writers on the right he writes rightie stuff for a pay cheque. Gary is what one might call malleable, a third rate writer who is a blank page on which the oilies write propaganda. This constitute never thinking of thinking for yourself. It is a major qualification for journalists at the Globe. The mindless Margaret Wente is aother good example. My guess is that Mason gets an E-Mail in BC from oil central in Calgary and puts a few of his own words into the mix to flesh the thing out. Then David Thomson, the Globe owner, dutifully prints Mason’s article and he too collects an oilie cheque for doing so. I consider the list above as no more than additional oil monopoly employees. I wonder how much they and their papers were paid to drive a duly elected Premier out of office. They are all mental dwarfs who put money above the truth and money above Canada. Early on the American oil monopoly recruited the press in a campaign against Trudeau’s National Energy Program WHICH NEVER ACTUALLY TOOK AFFECT. It is nothing more than the NEP myth but it still repeated all these years later. For new rightie writers it is imperative to include the letters NEP in their offerings. They thusly declare in 3 letters to the hard right, I am one of you they say. Every writer who include the NEP reference gets an oilie cheque. Ezzie Le Rant must be the highest paid oil ass kisser in the Country because almost everything he write includes a reference to the NEP. The NEP was used by Preston Manning and a young Stevie Harper [ who are both on the oil monopoly payroll ] to drive a wedge between Alberta and Canada. Thus left on its’ very own there Province has had its’ oil resources stolen over the years to the tune of hundreds of billions of dollars. Turncoat Canadians have made a lot of money supporting the theft of OUR TREASURE BY THE OIL MONOPOLY. Premier Redford was having trouble balancing her book due to the monopoly thefts. The oil press then blamed Redford for the shortfall. But Leo Strauss did say it is noble to lie in the cause of regime change towards the right. The University of Calgary teaches courses in Strauss [ regime change ], Nietzsche [ the ordination of self determined exceptional wimps / Stevie Harper, Rob Anders Ezra Levant and Pierre Poilievre ] and Hayek [ voodoo economics wherein the great and greedy always hold the winning hand ]. With the NEP Trudeau was trying to protect Alberta and Canada. But Trudeau was bested by a mindless captive Western press feeding on steady diet of endless oil money. As a result Albertans chose the big bad wolf instead of a Canuck safe harbour. Albertans are payinga huge price for cowering in the shadows. The US oil monopoly did not like Redford, therefore she had to go. This, even though real Albertans put her into office. If the USA and the oil monopoly succeed in their present coup d’état attempt in Venezuela that Country’s heavy oil will begin to flow again to Texas and California. Then the oilies won’t need Alberta’s tar / Benzine bomb mix. That will mean no market for real oil, no market for tar and no market for natural gas. Albertans will be up shit creek. There is one saving grace. If the Keystone XL pipeline does get built Russ Girling has promised his Wall St. backers that if TransNotCanada isn’t using the KXL to transport DilBit [ tar mixed with Benzine / bomb making materials ] it will carry Alberta’s mountain water down to Texas. Under NAFTA, if that tap is turned on Canadians will never be able to turn it off. This will leave Alberta and Saskatchewan farmer hanging by their thumbs on parched land in the Palliser Triangle. The ongoing grain backlog may have been created on purpose by Lyin Steve. If most of the farmers are driven out of business because they can’t sell their wheat there’ll be nobody around to scream when their water starts going stateside. With a friends like the American oil monopoly and the oil dollar media who needs enemies??? By the way. I thought you might be interested in the fact that Paul Godfrey’s national Post got another quarter million dollars in advertising from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers [ CAPP ] and the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association [ CEPA ]. CEPA should be renamed the Canadian Tar Pipeline Association. In Herr Harper’s Canada the truth has taken a vacation, lying is the in thing now. Paul got his oilie cheque to ensure that the Post will continue to call tar / Benzine [] OIL [].

**********************************************************

Andrea Horwath is fighting an up hill battle. Three newspapers [ Globe / Post / Sun ] support Tim Hudak, Harper’s puppet in Ontario. The Star supports the Liberal Party machine commanded by the McGuinty / Wynne coalition. Kathleen is hiding somewhere in Ontario. And the devious Dalt is hiding in a hole somewhere around Harvard University. If we step back, all of the papers are supporting politicians who show or have shown no interest in the interests of Ontarians. So if you vote for the Libs / PC you are casting your ballot in favour of the status quo and against your best interests. And the continuing decline of this Province. I have been trying to sell a fix for our nukie electrical system since Mike Harris was around. He and his Fascist supporters won’t have any of it. Tory insiders were making too much money gaming the system. When McGuinty came to power in 2003 I changed gears. Although a PC, I offered to help Dalton fix our electrical system. This was in February 2004. No dice. McGuinty had become aware of the rewards that could be gained supporting the nukies in their rape of Ontarians KWwise. The nukies gave our boy Dalt a free house. That will do it every time. I have said and have written over these many years, that for McGuinty, all roads led to nuclear. The $ press, over this time has been paid tens of millions of tax dollars by the nukies to misinform and confuse the ratepayers and the taxpayers. Dollar to donuts I’ll bet you don’t know what the hell is going on when you open your hydro bill. I’ll put it as plain as I can. You are being screwed royally. There is no way KWs should cost 3 times what the people in Manitoba and Quebec pay. The extra charges are filling the pockets of the Liberal and PC party machines. They have you by the short and curlies and it is the job of the Star, Globe, Post and Sun to keep your short and curlies in a tight grip. I have been writing stuff on our electrical system for a dozen years. I used to send letters to the papers correcting their misinformation. I was ignored and your screwing has continued. I launched the Geeman Blog more than 4 years ago and my readership has grown. I write what I write FOR THE PEOPLE. Not the great and greedy, the energy business, the special interests or the politicians. In a democracy we have to trust the people. If the majority does make a mistake then everybody has to suffer. But at least said mistake is self inflicted, not imposed by the likes of harper. Those affected will react, form new alliances and new majorities will come to pass. For the Fascists like Herr Harper, the self appointed elites fear the masses. Max Stirner said this in 1830. A young and impressionable Friedrich Neitzsche stole Stirners idea. The masses have to be controlled he said, beaten up if necessary and lied to, otherwise they’ll mess things up. H. L. Mencken and Ayn Rand believed this to be true. Hitler and Heidegger believed it too. The Republicans support keeping watch on the masses and the US Supreme Court has just approved unlimited political spending so the great and greedy have the revenue tools to keep the masses in check. This to void the vote. Herr Harper is funded by the oil monopoly as is the University of Chicago and the University of Calgary. Most of the dollar media in North America is funded by the greedy and the oilies. Most of the major politicans in the US and Canada are on the same oil payroll. So what your see in your newspapers and on TV is propaganda to keep you mired in an endless struggle for the crumbs that fall from the table of the rich and powerful. But I sure you have heard the above story from others over the past few years. Since I was born a mister-fix-it, I look passed the situation and the gossip. Talk is cheap and ceaseless talk keeps us from making changes so desperately needed by the masses. Andrea Horwath is discussing our broken electrical system, good for her. But she is under constant attack from the papers who are being paid by the Liberals and the PCs. These two Parties are happy to continue to pick your pockets using the hydro bills. And the $ dollar media is happy to take money from the great and greedy to facilitate your present servitude. Fixing the electrical system is quite easy if we just bypass the sharks and the grafters. I have written on this subject many times but let’s go through the drill again. Mike Harris was faced with a bankrupt electrical system, many thanks to perpetual experimentation by the nukies. The nukies never created an nuclear plant that worked properly. They tried and tried and tied yet again but failed. Failed that is, USING YOUR MONEY. Harris wanted rid of the problem and enlisted the help of Ken Lay, head of ENRON. Lay committed suicide rather than face the music. There was plenty of interest from the private sector in buying all or part of Ontario Hydro in 1995. The sale of Hydro would have removed a problem from Mike’s shoulders and give his a couple of billion dollars to cover his hidden deficit. The hard right never likes to admit that their ideology never works. Harris and Harper prove my point. Harris decided that dividing Hydro in 5 parts would bring in more money and leave control in the hands of 5 different companies. If the ratepayers got screwed they would have 5 different complaint departments to go to. A Judge stopped the Harris sale but the damage was done. Ontario Hydro was by then broken into 5 incompatible bits. Thus we now have a multi head monster of a KW business that is inefficient in the extreme. In truth McGuinty has privatized the 5 bits of Ontario Hydro behinds the back of the people. YOU think you own the electrical and in a sense you do. You are carrying all the debts and you are responsible for the all the liabilities. The nukies and McGuinty’s grafters control the system now and skim off all the cream. It is my belief that Dalt and the Liberal party machine rent out the parts of the KW utility to his friends. Meaning McGuinty continues to get monthly cheques [ his cut ] from the grafter, even in his hole at Harvard. Mike’s five bits were created to facilitate selling the utility, not as an operational system. So the present setup is the worst of all worlds and as you proceed to the poor house covering the cost of a very inefficient system, McGuinty’s friends are getting rich.

*************************************************************

So here is the direction we should be heading in. Andrea Horwath is out there talking the talk about electricity and being slammed by the dollar media. These attack journalists and their newspapers put all effort into smearing Andrea but give your KW predicament not a single thought. We can draw from that the fact that John Honderich, David Thomson, Paul Godfrey and the separatist Pierre Peladeau care little about your KW plight. The Libs and PCs care little too. So the only champion on your side is Andrea Horwath and the NDP. Our electrical system is fixable as I have stated many times, in letters and in many posts. I am vigorously opposed by those few who will lose money as a result of my suggestions. That is understandable. The great and the greedy are, well, always greedy. They want more than they are entitled to and will fight [ paying the $ media vast sums for one sided comment ] to keep it. Let’s take from their hands the levers of power by which they commit state sponsored theft.
The Libs and the PCs need to be banished from the land.

****************************************************************

What is required is to simplify a very complicated electrical system. The paid press does its’ best to make matters more difficult by misinforming you and purposely causing confusion. First step for a new majority Government is to cut KW prices in half, immediately. That is not to hard to figure out. This can be done by cutting out all McGuinty’s grafters and cutting payments to the Liberal Party machine. And McGuinty himself. Devious Dalt will just have to get a job washing dishes at the Harvard cafeteria. Many of the items [ about 16 ] on your hydro bill are just book keeping entries which transfer you money to various Government bank accounts. We can suspend those payments and in time ascertain their legitimacy. With the price of electricity at half there will be an immediate kick to Ontario’s economy. Hiring will increase [ especially among the young ], businesses will see the KW reduction in their bottom line and external companies will be encouraged to set up shop here. Mike’s two bit electrical system can be put back together into one piece. Old Ontario Hydro served us well for 70 years or so until the nukies seized control of our utility. This, as the means of conducting nuclear experimentation into the peaceful uses of the atom. I always thought Ontario Hydro’s focus was supposed to be on generating clean / cheap electricity for ONTARIANS. Not paying for experiments. Having the focus on reliable, clean, cheap power lowered to second place, well behind nuclear experiments was never approved by the citizenry here. Surely the people should have some say in what direction their utility takes. The people’s input for the last 25 years has been reduced to ziltch. This suits the Libs / PCs who agree that the masses should not have a place at the table. In the upcoming election make sure this situation is changed. It is your right to sit at the head of the table, insist on it. As things are now those [ nukies/ Harrisites / Dalt's friends ] now imbedded in the KW system can rape and pillage at will. That you can change with your ballot. Using the successful corporate structure of the old Ontario as a model, we can upgrade to to – day’s standards and regenerate our electrical system. Generating electricity has not changed in a hundred years. Other than solar or wind, turbines are involved. It is just a matter of what turns those turbines, steam or water. The Country’s special energy interests do not like solar, wind or water. These fuels belong to the citizens. Many of the politicians you elect are paid under the table to avoid the use of the sun, the breezes and rivers. Energy firms want their cut on the fuel supply too, like coal, oil, natural gas and uranium. The $ press will never tell you what your options are. It might be of interest that our nuclear plants do not pay for the use of OUR water. However, if I build a hydro generating plant Ontario will tax me although I put the water right back. This is done to give the nukies a break and penalize alternative energies. Shouldn’t you have a say in this shoddy arrangement? The press will never tell you this although I have written many letters to the papers on this subject. Two things I have been saying for years which the $ media refuses to acknowledge. Nuclear power has destroyed Ontario’s economy. Second, we have enough hydro power in Ontario to do away with all of the nuclear, coal and natural gas plants. And have some KWs left over to sell or use as the basis for establishing the much sought after hydrogen society. We have 27,000 MWs of water power, either installed or potential. This energy is at hand and awaits the will of Ontarians to cut it loose. I do not presume to tell Andrea Horwath and the NDP what their actions should be. Andrea is talking water and is anti nuclear. That’s the road to success. I just think there should be an open and honest debate on the points I have included herein and likewise the efforts others. I think Ontarians should be given the option of deciding if they want to pay 3.5 cents per KW for CO2 free / radioactive free water power. Or 8.5 cents per KW for CO2 emitting / toxic radioactive sludge nuclear power which then has be disposed of at our additional expense. I think the only people who will not want this debate to take place are the Libs, PC, those who are gaming our electrical and the press who are paid to lie to us. I would figure that is about 13 million to probably 10,000. We still live under majority rule. That is until the American oil monopoly and Herr Harper finish dismantling this democracy of our’s. So progress towards a revitalized Ontario just awaits the population here voting in the affirmative and then yelling, CHARGE.

*****************************************************

It was reported in Thomson’s Globe and Tar that Andrea Horwath and the NDP are considered ” ONTARIO’S BIGGEST ELECTORAL PERIL ” by David Herle, Who is Kathleen Wynne’s new hatchet man. Lord give me the strength to endure such blather. McGuinty destroyed this Province’s economy and yet the Liberal Party has the nerve to say Andrea is the perilous one. This the kind of thing a Fascist would say [ Fascists like Harper are Sociopathic ] [ Sociopaths cheat, lie and steal like Conrad Black ] [ from my vantage point McGuinty has revealed himself to be a Sociopath too ]. These demented people say one thing and mean the exact opposite. Both the Libs and the PCs have thrown a dark economic cloud over Ontario. If David Herle had half a brain [ which I now doubt ] he would not gotten involved in continuing the economic dismantlement of this fair Province. Herle has proven that a big payout, money in his own pocket is more important to him than building a better tomorrow for our grandkids. Herle’s first utterance about Andrea is pure nonsense and dangerous. I expect him to go downhill from here. Where are the Liberal MPP sheep in all of this? They are apparently only capable of Ba Baing. When McGuinty illegally closed the Legislature for 4 months with the assistance of a supremely dimwitted L. G. David Onley, Liberal MPPs said nothing but Ba Ba. When McGuinty announced he was running away, this, to a group of about 30 from the Party machine not Liberal MPPs were present. Again Lib. MPPs went Ba Ba. A question to David Herle. Just who is the electoral peril?????????????? I would say Kathleen Wynne wins hands down. I suspect McGuinty is still pulling the Party strings. If the Libs lose, it will cost the Dalt a lot of percentage money from the many scams.

**********************************************

I have already looked into putting a new Ontario Hydro back together. In 1970, this was before the Pickering nuclear facility came on stream, the Utility had 12,000 employees under one roof and generated about 8000 MWs from water and coal. The nukies in the 1960s were obligated to generate KWs no more expensive that water. The Pickering nuke plant was supposed to be measured against the new Adam Beck THREE hydro on the drawing board, which was to be constructed on the Niagara River beside Becks ONE and TWO. The nukies, by now in control of the old Ontario Hydro knew they didn’t have a hope in hell of generating power as cheap as water could. The original promise to do so was a lie, the first of hundreds. But as the nuclear plants came on stream the system had a fatal flaw. The nukies had not developed a reliable system, so their experiments had to continue. And if you are older than 40, you were footing the bill for said experiments. If a nuke failed and plunged Ontario into darkness it would have been curtains for the nukies. Now there was plenty of water power around as backup but the nukies were not going to let hydro KWs get back into the game. The entire Ontario Hydro hydraulic engineering staff was fired and what resulted was just a repair department for the existing hydro plants. 70 years experience building hydro plants here and around the world, the leading authority on hydro plants was snuffed out by the nukies. Your KW prices began the climb upward and the increases have never stopped. To provide a backup in case of the failure of a nuke the nukies built dirty coal plants. They refused to install clean coal technology for fear the coal plants would become completion because they generated cheap KWs. The dirty coal plants provided a easy excuse to jettison as the new nuclear plants appeared. Dalt McGuinty badly wanted to facilitate the nukies who had given him a house as well as them contributing to the Liberal Party machine. Murray Elston was the money guy, the go between. Making trips from nukieland to McGuintyland. With the move towards Green Dalt came up with the idea of pledging to close those dirty coal plants, but, but, but. The reliability of the nuclear plants was and is still iffy. The nukie experiments are still proceeding. So the McGuint looked around and discovered natural gas generating plants could be the nukie’s new back up. So the coal plants were built to backstop the nukes. That was like buying a second car in case the regular car gave out. Sensible people would ditch the regular and buy one reliable one. Then when dirty coal became a liability McGuinty took credit for planning to close them but it would take time because of unplanned down time for the nuclear plants. Then Dalt brought on stream the nat gas plants to provide a second back stop for the nukes. This, buying a third car in case the regular car and the first backup car failed. Quite clearly to Dalt, the solution to this whole ugly mess was to build new nuclear plants for $ 60 billion. At that time Quebec was building new hydro plants, the equal of our new nukes [ more experimentation ??? ] but for less than $ 20 billion. McGuinty and his nukie partners were so frustrated at having their funds curtailed Dwight Duncan was instructed to create phony brownouts / blackouts [ in 2005 / 06 ] to stampede Ontarians into agreeing to the $ 60 billion outlay for new nukes. However the gathering economic crisis in the USA rained on McGuinty’s parade. Massive foreclosures in Cleveland by banks was turning the City into something akin to bombed out Beirut. As lower class family reacted to being forced out for no good reason other than the greedy banks were sure they could resell the foreclosed homes for even more money than the existing mortgage. property values always rise? Don’t they. The dispossessed in Cleveland decided after politicians refused to come to their rescue began stripping the homes of any and all valuables, copper plumbing, sinks, bathtubs, doors, windows, siding, ACs, furnaces etc. Then as a nice finishing touch the abandon homes were torched. This was in 2006. You never informed of carnage in many cities in the States by the dollar media. The banks in Canada knew the story, the stock brokers here knew, the real estate people knew, the great and greedy knew but the press was paid to hold its’ tongue. Canadians to this day have never heard of the Cleveland Effect. That is what the huge loss of American property values was called. In the USA 80% of the wealth of the middle class was tied up in real estate. 9000 banks began aggressively foreclosing on houses, looking for a quick buck. Bush Junior never lifted a finger as his Country bled $ profusely. And the American economy tanked. And this is the system the US oil monopoly and Herr Harper want to impose on Canada. Meanwhile the nukies, McGuinty and Duncan had their $ 60 billion dream snatched away. How could the nukies find more taxpayer cash. Dalt implemented a conservation program that was a fraud. It actually increased KW usage. Then devious Dalt came up with a Green Energy Program that was so expensive he determined Ontarians would learn their lesson and opt for nuclear. Green energy is actually very clean and cheap. But like coal, natural gas, brownouts, blackouts, conservation, taxes on water used for hydro and the Green Energy Program every move McGuinty made was to give the nukies an advantage. And that advantage means higher and higher KW prices. I have been doing research on the 5 bits created by Mike Harris to be turned into cash to cover his hidden deficit. From one Utility [ old Ontario Hydro ] Harris created, OPG, Hydro One, the Independent Electricity System Operator, Electrical Safety Authority and the Ontario Electricity Financial Corp. These bits were created specifically for the sale that never took place. The Courts refused to allow Harris to sell our Utility. When McGuinty came to power he further divided the utility. Dalt created, Hydro One Networks, Hydro One Remote Communities, Hydro One Telecom, Hydro One Brampton, Ontario Power Authority. A bigger trough meant more of McGuinty’s pig friends could have a go. And we also have the Ontario Energy Board which requires lengthy applications from all the players if a rate increase is sought. This toing and froing costs you big money. The OEB has ruled in favour of the nukies every time and rubber stamped every increase. The Energy Board is there to make you think someone is looking after your interests. NOT. In 1970 before Pickering Ontario Hydro had 12,000 employees. It generated about 8000 MWs per day. Canada’s population was about 8 million. People were 82% urban and 18% rural. In 2012 [ estimates ], the multi headed utility had close to 50,000 employees and generated 17,000 MWs per day. Canada’s population was just under 13 million and the split was 85% urban and 15% rural. This has changed little in 40 years. 20 years ago electricity costs were, generation 70%, transmission 15% and distribution 15%. Last year the pie was cut like this. Generation 50%, transmission 7%, distribution 25%, Regulatory and debt reduction 9% and taxes 12%. Simply put there were four times as many employees / suits / hangers-on, generating just a little more than double the power with McGuinty siphoning 20% off for himself and his Party. In other words hidden taxes. And Wynne’s boy, David Herle calls Andrea Horwath a menace??? People on fixed incomes and the elderly are being pushed to the wall by electricity costs. But the dollar press is not paying any attention. In fact they’re paid not to pay any attention to such problems. Rather the $ media was drawn to Mickey the lobster, found in a St. Catharines store parking lot. Now that is a really big story. There is every reason to cut KW costs in half immediately and glue the old Ontario Hydro back together. That is your decision and your hand will play a big role. Either you drop your educated vote in the ballot box. Or you wait awhile. This, till the roof collapses. Then you can make a trip to the shed to grasp your pitchfork and join the mob.

****************************************************

Interestingly, as the attacks on Alison Redford die down [ not totally gone yet ], four new campaigns are now under way. Oil central in Calgary has picked this time to turn up the volume on Andrea Horwath [ so Harper's assistant Hudak can win ], Global Warming and Medicare. In the US the massive coverage is about the Washington / oil monopoly coup d’e tat in Venezuela. The attacks on Horwath are enumerated above. Peter Foster, Canada’s ace Climate Denier and his brethren at Paul Godfrey’s National post are incensed at the UN reporting that continued high levels of CO2 will destroy our planet. Of course, curtailing the ever increasing levels of CO 2 will cut into the profits of the American oil monopoly. In response to this threat to their profits the monopoly has hired hundreds of small brained people like Foster to say the same thing over and over again, denying Climate Change. Plus the oilies pay Godfrey to print Foster’s stuff along with that of other to misinform Canadians and circulate lies. The third campaign is another round of attacks on Canada’s Medicare. The American health care industry doesn’t like our Medicare any more than Archer Daniel Midland [ a huge grain company that is constantly breaking the law ] liked our Canadian Wheat Board. Since Brian Mulroney was such good friends with ADM and laterally Steve Harper became a supporter of ADM our CWB got killed off to accommodate the grainies. Now look at the pitiful state of our Western grain farmers, a bumper crop and no way to get it to market because the railways are too busy hauling Alberta Tar and Benzine. The bomb trains operate outside of regulations. Freed from the law by Harper. If our Medicare goes the same route as the CWB [ thanks to Harper ] we won’t have to worry about wait times any more, neither will Doctor Brian Day and the CMA. Our concern will be about finding additional cemetery space. Last week an article appeared in Godfrey’s Post, written by Day. I thought we had rid ourselves of this pest who fronts for the US health care industry. Questionably, Day got to be the President of the Canadian Medical Association. An organization that has been bought off by the Americans. Even before Day took over as President of the CMA he was travelling the Country telling lies about Medicare. Day wasn’t even in office yet but he was usurping the duly elected President. I complained to the CMA and got the finger. Back then Day would not debate his opponents, he always wanted the stage to himself. Brian told different stories to different groups. And the newspapers and TV [ even TVO ] gave Day all the time he needed to spread the US health care industry propaganda here. Those who did the interviewing never asked any tough question and Day walked over them like they were door mats. Day travelled the US inviting health care firms to come on in. The US health care industry has a ton of money as does the American oil monopoly. The problem for me is that Day came from Manchester, UK. Far too many people from other countries come to Canada and mouth it up. Day should shut his friggen trap and go back to Manchester. Tom Flanagan, a US draft dodger and pervert should go back to the US and face the music. And John Ivison should go back to Scotland and help his people solve their loyalty problems. I remember to song and John will too. Ivison, will ye no go home again? I would like to start a movement dedicated to seeing that only Canadians be allowed to speak for Canadians. True Canadians who speak out for this Country would not take money to promote the interests of the US health care industry, the American oil monopoly and a Republican / Fascist form of Government. But our dollar media does just that. They take money to undermine this Nation. Back when Brian Day was at his lying best I wrote a number of letters of complain to the politicians / papers long before the internet. My opinions were ignored. In the last few days there have been 5 anti Medicare, Star, Globe and Tar and the Post. It is the 30th anniversary of Medicare which has been under attack by the Americans ever since. Many US loving Canadians have taken cash over the years to scuttle our health care system. The current crop of sell outs are the pea size brained Lorne Gunter, Marty Cohn and Brian Lee Crowley, who heads up the Macdonald – Laurier Institute. M – L is a right wing think tank operating out of the PMO. The Mac. – Laur. outfit is closely allied with the Fraser / Manning Institutes [ all tax exempt / supposed charities ] which support Herr Harper. Revenue Canada looks the other way. Conrad Black and Brian Mulroney [ both crooks ] are forgiven taxes by Rev. Can. Think tanks that back Harper are given a free ride. Crowley is heavily promoted by David Thomson’s Globe. US under the table money, was as important to the $ media [ particularly Godfrey's Post ] back years ago as it is to – day. In terms of the Venezuelan coup now being orchestrated by the Americans / oilies there have been 9 articles about the coup in the media all saying the same kinds of things. Of interest to me is the involvement of Gwyn Morgan, a favourite of David Thomson / Globe, in the writings about Venezuela. Morgan has been the head of numerous energy companies [ TransAlta, EnCana, SNC Lavalin et al ] which have been engaged in criminal activity. Gwyn, as a front for Big Oil gave the Fraser Institute a million oilie dollars. Gwyn and his wife live in a 7 million dollar house on an island in BC. You know what? Crime does pay and the best of all for Conrad Black, Brian Mulroney and Gwyn Morgan Revenue Canada looks the other way. Rev. Can. is too busy auditing environmental groups who oppose oil. I have suggested that we deport Brian Day back to his homeland. I even went so far as to offer to help pay for a one way ticket on a cattle boat back to the UK for Dr. Day. While we are at it we should deport Tom Flanagan too. It would be helpful if Tom took his US friend Ted Morton with him. Both of them guilty of not doing their duty just like Bush Junior. When, during the Vietnam War America called. Tom, Ted and George hightailed for them thar hills. Real men, just like little Stevie Harper.

ONTARIO SPRING ELECTION / 2014 / THIS MEMO IS NOT TO ANDREA HORWATH NDP LEADER / THIS IS A MEMO TO ONTARIANS WHO ARE PROTESTING 07/03/14

This post is an add on to the one I did about 2 weeks ago on the subject of electricity. In the interim Andrea Horwath, NDP Provincial Leader announced a number of changes she would like to see made in the way our hydro system works. One feature was a $ 100 rebate to all ratepayers. Other initiatives are the creation of a new old fashion Ontario Hydro in which the expensive, many headed monster which now exists would be put back into one piece. Andrea would like to see all of the private operators who now control the KW system given the boot. There is more to Andrea’s announcements which are available on the net. The papers are ignoring Ontario’s KW problems, YOU don’t count. The reason for this post is to support Andrea and her quest to lower the price of your electricity. I want to counter the criticism that has started to emerge from the wormwood, like the babble coming from the pen of the Post’s Scott Stinson. Scott is a know-nothing, who says nothing and says it often. Understand this, everyone who is critical of Horwath’s plan [ the only sensible plan in existence ] is on the nukie take. Only a savant scribe who has been bought off would not want to see the KW system fixed. Daaaaaaaaaaa. Some of these worms must get such big nukie cheques that they don’t care about paying 25 cents per KW/H for power. Or maybe they all still live at home with their mothers? I built a home in Pickering in 1960. I am a contractor, an electrician, a carpenter, a plumber, a welder, sheet metal man and a highly skilled mechanical / technical mechanic. The nuclear plant was started during my residency in the Township. As a Pickering Councillor 1973 – 76 I had dealings with the nukies. At the time I was neither for or against the plant. I know now that the nukies were telling lies to Ontarians even in those days. But the propaganda in the press back then aimed to mollify people and it worked. In 1985 my Party, the PC lost power thank to Frank Miller and his Republican gang. I was ticked. However in the election of 1995 I worked for Mike Harris. I was sure my PCs would have learned a lesson from 1985 but that turned out to be a vain hope. From 1995 to 99 Mike just made regular people mad as well as a lot of PCs like me. During my early days with the PCs [ from 1960 / Leslie Frost ] the Party listened to people no matter their political stripe. Mike and his foreign machine [ Bay St. / Republicans ] couldn’t care less about the interests of the voters. I did help Harris in the 1999 election, I was still convinced the PCs would see the light but no dice. After getting elected with a reduced majority Harris continued to bull on. Wiser head said to Mike proceed with caution but no. Then the bombshell, at least a bombshell for me. Mike announced he would sell Ontario Hydro. We know now Harris had run up a $ 3.5 billion deficit behind the backs of the people. So here he was, going sell our assets off to save HIS ass. That was enough for me. I wrote to Mike and spoke with Janet Ecker my MPP. I said don’t sell Ontario Hydro, fix it. Ontario Hydro was the engine that made Ontario the economic engine in Canada. Cheap, clean power gave us advantages in so many areas. The opposite of to-day with our outrageous KW prices. Ontario is a walking dead man, closer to expiring than most think. As I surveyed our situation in 2000, with background from my contacts in Pickering it became clear the PC didn’t have a hope in hell of winning the next election in 2003. I changed my tune. I wrote to Mike and spoke to Janet. I said, fix the electrical system and you will win the next election. Sell the utility and the PCs are dead in the water. Of course I was ignored and I walked away from the PC Party and have never been back. The Party ended up with 24 seats in 2003. It was a disgrace and the full responsibility falls on Mike Harris, Bay St., his whiz kids and his friends at ENRON. We have all kinds of political names bandied about to-day which are used by the Harper press to buttonhole people. The PCs are a curse to Herr Harper as are the Liberals. The CCF and later the NDP consisted of two groups, left and far left. The far right was a small force but made a lot of noise. In recent years the far right [ still small ], backed by the American oil monopoly made like the body snatchers. They took over the national PCs, the Ontario PC and some of the other Provincial PC parties. In other words the ultraright wing are squatters in various right of centre political organizations as a means of looking like grandma but not really being grandma. This is all being done to fool you. It was Steve Harper and Preston Manning who dreamed up this flim flam. Say you are one thing but be another. It reminds me of my experiences feeding baby food to my now 50 year old son when he was little. Richard hated carrots and he would spit them out. So I came up with a plan. I’d take a spoonful of carrots and dip the end in the peach which he loved. This worked two or three times then the whole mouthful would fill the air. Harper is all carrots but he teases you with the occasional spoon of peach. It makes YOU question if you are wrong about Lyin Steve. I define myself as a Progressive Conservative. I have the center line in my left hand as I stroll along. I want to run politics like a business, maximize opportunities to make an honest profit and build a better society. Harper / Hudak want to make the same profit but stick it the pockets of their friends. I was in business for 50 years. I always had 3 squares on the table for my family, the kids were well clothed, we had a roof over our heads and were warm in the winter. I never went broke and didn’t steal from others like Conrad Black. I was part of the PCs when we ran a tight ship and never left anyone behind. It was said many years ago. Of those who are truly blessed MORE IS EXPECTED. AND ME AND MY FAMILY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TRULY BLESSED. I can’t stand those who cheat. So much of business to-day is in the hands of cheaters. We have laws on the books to deal with cheaters but they are seldom if ever enforced in Ontario and Ottawa. The people who do go to jail are those who steal bread to avoid starvation and sleep in the parks because the hae no place to go. It may come as a surprise but McGuinty for all intents and purposes has privatized our electrical system. Where the Courts prevented Mike Harris from carrying out his planned sale Dalt accomplished it by stealth. AND I HAVE FOLLOWED EVERY MOVE DEVIOUS DALTON HAS MADE SINCE 2003. When I was telling Harris and Ecker to fix Ontario Hydro I could not have told them how. I felt my neck a little over this. But once I was free of the PCs I began doing research and following the story of the decline and fall of Ontario in the media. I started gathering technical data [ before the net ] and clipping articles, editorials and Letters to the Editor on energy matters. Soon the nukie lies became quite apparent. Then I began to write letters correcting mistakes / spin, first to the Toronto Star, Queen’s Park and then the other papers. I was ignored. It soon became apparent that the papers were taking ad money from McGuinty’s Government and OPG. Whenever there was a negative incident with a nuclear plant there would be a flurry of nonsense ads which said nothing, were not aimed at getting a response but strictly meant to reimburse the papers for printing nukie propaganda. All during McGuinty’s term in office the abuse of our electrical system increased. Through the 2005 period Dwight Duncan purposely caused brownouts and blackouts in order to sell the idea of $ 60 billion in new nuclear plants and repairs to the old ones. The papers looked the other way. Can you believe when the Liberals purposely cause much inconvenience nobody in the press was interested. Believe it. Dwight / Dalton never got their wish as luck would have it. I wrote a lot of letters to the papers and was ignored. I said to people at the time that I felt that I was behind a glass wall watching Ontario being put to death financially and I was helpless to stop McGuinty and his friends from doing their dirty deeds. Any experience business professor would take one look at our electrical system and be amazed that such an expensive monster could have been created right before the eye of the public? Ontarians own the electrical system, own all of the debts and take all of the risks. The private insiders take all the profits and slip McGuinty and the Liberal machine their cut. I am sure Dalt still gets his cheques even though he is hiding at Harvard. And a few of Hudaks PCs are also in the $ loop I am sure. Having the 5 system bits makes it much easier to rifle the public treasury. What the Province is now facing is that the privateers have had their way for so long they can’t see the end of the road coming up fast. Ontarians are fast running out of patience but no amount of protesting seems to penetrate Wynne’s skull. This present situation is strange but not new. Those who are now stealing from OPG, Hydro One and the other bits as individuals are not going to let up for a minute in the looting. Why should any one of them show restraint when the other keep grabbing? There are two possible outcomes. If things continue as they are now going eventually the people will rise up. What form that will take and when is anyone’s guess. OR, OR, OR. Or the RATEPAYERS can take back the UTILITY through the LEGISLATURE. Then the whole sordid mess will be revealed. I would estimate that 25% of your electric bill is graft and theft. An answer to that question will be forthcoming quickly as the system is downsized. Graft and theft will be the first dragon slain. I think another 30% of your bill relates to operating a very inefficient 5 headed system. I mean how difficult would it be run the water turbines [ no CO2 / no toxic nuclear waste ], sent the juice through the wires and send the homeowner / businessman – woman an invoice. It ain’t rocket science. I see the nuclear, coal and gas plants being closed and us going all water. Did you know that Ontario has 2200 potential hydro electric sites. I have a list of 600 of these sites [ and maps ]. They were sent to me by a young civil servant at Queen’s Park. He was incensed that this clean / cheap power was not being used because the nukies forbad it and had the water file hidden away. Ontario has more hydro power than Manitoba and Quebec put together but the press has prevented you from knowing that [ in return for money ]. The 5 headed monster structure has to be bulldozed and we must start again. First the price of KWs has to be halved. All of the suits have to be sent home including Sandra Pupatello and Bernard Lord. Then a new corporate structure has to be created BY THE LEGISLATURE. Once this is done then it will be a matter of fitting all the 5 bits into new pidgeon holes. It is my belief that most of the suits and drones will be let go [ many for cause ]. A team of demolition experts will have to be assembled made up of hands-on people to attend to the closing of the nuclear, coal and natural gas plants. A streamline New Ontario Hydro will quickly deal with run away costs and turn the utility into a profit centre. When Leslie Frost was Premier the old Ontario Hydro made $ 280 million in profit [ 1960 ]. That went to health, education, programs and welfare etc. Since 1971 the nukies have put all that profit IN THEIR POCKETS TO FUND NUCLEAR EXPERIMENTS. And the nukies cleaned out the Ontario Hydro bank account as well as using up the utility’s credit. This has been going on over the passed 35 years and the dollar hungry media was paid to keep you in the dark. If you are struggling with your finances now or your kid can’t find a decent job thank John Honderich and the Toronto Star for taking money to help put you in such a precarious position. Scott Stinson of the Post wrote a 1/3rd page article that shows you where Paul Godfrey and his Paper are vis a vis your hydro crisis. Paul DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOU, YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER ONE OF THE UNDERCLASS AS THE NIETZSCHE MYTH WOULD HAVE IT. Your place is to forever pay more for your KWs and be grateful for small mercies. Like the exceptional people allowing you to breath. Stinson never dealt with the hydro crisis, he just piled on the NDP and Horwath for what reason I don’t know. Does Scott write dribble just to hear himself? Stinson wanted to know where the NDP would get $ 440 million to hand out to ratepayers. I can tell Scott exactly. First all the graft and theft would come to an end, that would cover the $ 440 mill and then some. Real conservation would cut your bill more. Going to a hydrogen cycle instead of the demand cycle would mean every KW generated in the Province would be used or saved. Not a KW would leave Ontario unless a neighbour needed a boost. The New Ontario Hydro would cut costs for EVERYONE and create good jobs for the young and the old. The team of McGuinty, the nukies and the dollar hungry media have been engaged in a rigged game against Ontarians. By now the score is probably a zillion to zero for them. It is time to pull up your jock straps and give these thieves a run for their money. But it has to be done legally through the Legislature. You have a ballot, use it wisely and IN YOUR OWN SELF INTEREST. A fair price for you KWs is your right. Don’t take bullshit from the Libs / PCs for an answer. The DAY AFTER the up coming election the creation of the New Ontario Hydro can begin. First out the door should go Sandra Pupatello, Bernard Lord and Bob Chiarelli [ the man who can't tell an ohm from an amp ]. Sandra and Bernie were appointed to two Boards of Directors [ Hydro One / OPG ] [ that's two boards too many ] shows how out of touch Kathleen Wynne is on the electricity file. This is the same old McGuinty old. A corrupt Government charging more and more for electricity to reward its’ friends, Liberal MPPs making like sheep, like Ba Ba. And the $ media getting paid to heighten the public’s misery. Kathleen doesn’t have a clue about the poor state of the Province. Our electrical system doesn’t need 5 boards of directors or one board for that matter. What is needed is a advisory board of a dozen regular citizens to help steer the ship, that’s all. The Legislature should be in charge of the ship. And the nukies should be warned that shredder trucks will be banned from Queen’s Park and 700 University Ave. when the new Government takes over. We have already seen what McGuinty had his people do, destroy documents. As the New Ontario Hydro rises, anyone caught destroying files should be jailed. My old PCs used to listen to people. Having such KW advisors at Hydro would be putting that old fashioned idea back into practice. A Government can never go wrong listening to the people. All the Libs / PCs, the business community and the $ media do is restate society’s problems over and over each day. They never solve a thing and add confusion to the mix on purpose. Thus leaving the citizenry to swing in the wind by their thumbs. The New Ontario Hydro would be a great business opportunity. In truth the cost of water KWs behind the dam is half a cent. Just think of the doors that would open. Businesses all over North America would be fighting to get in. The new system WILL BE a profit centre. But that profit should GO IN YOUR POCKET. Not to McGuinty and his friends. Ontario can regain its’ former stature. YOU []- CAN -[] MAKE THAT HAPPEN???

ENBRIDGE PIPE NO # 9 * LAC – MEGANTIC AND MORE / THAT IS MORE ABOUT THE TAKEOVER OF CANADA BY THE AMERICAN OIL MONOPOLY / SPEARHEADED BY LYIN STEVE / CHIEF QUISLING 22/10/13

I have written a number of posts on the Harper killings at Lac – Megantic. The petro $ media, has since that time feverously tried to change the channel on behalf of Harper and the oil monopoly. But reality, something that Steve just hates intervened, that CN derailment in Gainford Alberta blew up. The railway said it was propane that caught fire or was the Company cooking the books again? Just like CP. I suspect Benzine. There are billions of dollars at stake here, getting that cheap tar out of Alberta and transporting it[ via ancient pipelines or obsolete rail tank cars ] to Texas and California to the idle heavy oil refineries there. Once the Alberta Tar / Benzine mix is refined in the USA the resulting oil / gasoline / diesel products are offered to the world market. American drivers never see a gallon of that gasoline. It is another Republican myth. The only beneficiaries of the wealth thus created are the US oil monopoly, TransNotCanada, Enbridge, Kinder Morgan, CN Rail, CP Rail, the petro $ media [ Star / Globe /Post ] and Herr Harper along with his Fascist friends. The losers are all those who live along the pipelines both in Canada and the USA. Also those who live along railway lines here and Stateside. Alberta only gets a royalty of eight percent, not enough to clean up the tailing ponds and the environmental damage caused by the US tar monopoly, pipelines and railways in the Province. And in one case the monopoly did not even pay the Province $ 100,000 it owed in royalties. That matter is now before the Court. For gods sake, Venezuela takes a 32% royalty cut. What kind of patsies are these Albertans? But they voted for Herr Harper didn’t they. That just about sums things up doesn’t it. Lyin Steve screws Albertans just like he does the rest of us. The difference is that we know we are being screwed by Harper and the oilies. Albertans are oblivious, they don’t even budge when the monopoly hurts them. They drop their pants, bend over with never a complaint. Harper’s employer, the monopoly always have to come out on top. Since the cargo being moved is tar the oil tax doesn’t apply either in Canada or the USA. The monopoly doesn’t have to pay the oil spill levy either because, you guessed it the stuff is tar NOT OIL. This is a sweetheart deal granted to the oil monopoly by the Republicans. The heavy oil refineries mentioned above are in duty free / tax free areas in Texas and California. While actually on American soil the monopoly pays no taxes to the US Government. Another sweetheart deal, thanks to the Republicans. The monopoly get a free ride thanks to the Republicans and Harper Fascists. Everybody else gets the broken end of the broom. Next time Joe Oiliver shows up on your TV, watch closely to see if he subscribes to the above outline in which I have described the American oil monopoly as winning every time the double headed coin is tossed. Or he will say Canadians will be the big tar winners, hands down. And all his other lies. The monopoly can’t get the tar out of Alberta by pipeline or rail unless it is mixed with Benzine as the thinner. The environmental regulations regarding the handling, use and transportation of Benzine are very strict in the US or in Europe. Here, Herr Harper has either removed the environmental restrictions regarding Benzine or he is not enforcing the regulations. Either Benzine explodes and fries you. Or the Benzine gas asphyxiates you. It is almost certain that the survivors of Megantic Oue. and Gainford Alta. [ among others ] have had their lives shortened by breathing Benzine fumes. In other word Donnie and Dollie Canadian you and your family are up shit creek without a paddle. There is nobody of note in your corner. Little wonder there are protest going on all over the Country. Do we storm the Bastille now, before the fires consume us or we die choking, accompanied by our love ones. Or do we wait quietly for the grim reaper [ Steve Harper ] to come fetch us. In this case the reaper carries a can of Benzine and a torch. Not a scythe. Queen’s Park has a role to play in this endangerment of Canadians which includes Ontarians. The Legislature has to step in but forget about Kathleen Wynne. She is a puppet for the Liberal Party machine, they loves Albert Tar / Benzine and nuclear. Kathleen is already in bed with Russ Girling, CEO of TransNotCanada. Russ is good buddies with Dalton McGuinty. Girling reamed Ontarians on the gas plants cancellation. You can be sure the McGuint is still pulling in his cut from that little deal. From this day forward our MPPs will bear some responsibility for any Enbridge fire balls, they have been forewarned. If Ontarians get fried the MPPs will be partly to blame. Enbridge is playing fast and loose with the truth in regards to the reversal of Pipe #9 [ 50 years old ]. The National Energy Board stooges, appointed by Harper will not allowed anyone to contradict the Company. Its’ hearings have been closed down. No doubt Herr Harper intervened. Same as Harper’s Senators, he is going to pass sentence without a trial. Duff, Pam and Pat have passed their best before date. Steve doesn’t seem realize the Spanish inquisition disappeared 500 years ago. Hello Steve, we defeated Nazi Germany in 1945. You are wasting your trying to revive the Reich and the title of Fuhrer. If Enbridge does start pumping Alberta Tar mixed with Benzine through No # 9 we can expect a explosion and fireballs somewhere in Southern Ontario. Queen’s Park must step in to protect the citizens from being fried by Enbridge. The quartz sand in the unrefined tar scours the inside of steel pipes making them thinner \ weaker over time. That is why Enbridge has had so many spills [ most covered up by the press ]. Poor / old welds are quickly sanded away. This also applies to bends and elbows which restrict the flow of the tar. The Liquified Crude Bitumen [ correct name for tar mixed with Benzine] has to be pushed at a higher pressure than oil. The abrasive properties in the tar causes the pipes to run very hot, at 150 deg F rather than the design limit of 70 deg F. All of the pressure gauges which are supposed to warn the company of a spill have their diaphragms sanded away quickly and thus are rendered useless. The NEB clowns will never hear such things. Even if they did they are too stupid to comprehend. In terms of the shutoff valves, the sand destroys the seats and they end up just like your leaky kitchen tap. If a pipe blows the control centre will not know for hours. But when the flaming geyser is finally discovered, there would already have been a huge loss of life. Enbridge would not be able to turn the tar off because the valves wouldn’t work. Can you imagine Number # 9 blowing up at Finch and Bathurst Sts. Toronto firefighters would think they are dealing with what Enbridge, Paul Godfrey’s National Post and David Thomson’s Globe and Tar describe as OIL. If you go back 3 years. Pat Daniel, CEO of Enbridge lied about the Kalamazoo tar spill and Benzine gas cloud.. For more than a week Pat claimed that it was OIL that spilled. THE PAPERS KEEP MISTAKENLY CALLING ALBERTA TAR MIXED WITH BENZINE [] OIL [] HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF TIMES. The only petroleum resource being shipped out of Canada right now is tar. Godfrey got more than $ 2 million ad money from the American oil monopoly since December 2012 to sing the oilie’s song. Thomson’s Globe got over $ 800,000 during the same period to stay mum on the subject of tar / Benzine and fried Quebecers. So what we would be facing in Toronto is the possibility of deaths coming in waves. If No # 9 blows and the Benzine ignites at Finch and Bathurst hundreds of people will be fried not just 47 like at Megantic. Then the firefighters would rush in to deal with what they think is an oil spill. Now the citizenry has been assured that it will be OIL flowing through Pipe No # 9 by Enbridge, the National Energy Board, the Post, the Globe and Joe Oiliver to name a few. So the first responders would die from the flaming Benzine gas because they would have no HAZMAT gear. The Enbridge blow torch would keep pouring out flames and the heat from the fire would begin to melt the pipe ends back going east and west because as I have said the shut off valves would not work. There would be more victims as the conflagration spread. Once Enbridge finally admitted that they were lying [ again ] and Al Monaco informed the authorities that they were facing pressurized tar and Benzine gas the search for the proper protective HAZMAT equipment [ Hazardous Material protective clothing and breathing apparatus ] would have to begin . Where would such HAZMAT stuff be found and how quick could it get here? The firefighters couldn’t prepared for such an event ahead of time unless they knew what was in the pipe. By law, companies are required by the Province to list hazardous materials stored in their buildings so the firemen / firewomen know of the dangers as they approach. The same laws must be applied to pipelines and rail lines. A new Premier should be saying, give us the details of what you are carrying pipelines and railways or you don’t get into Ontario, period. Why are Enbridge, TransNotCanada, Kinder Morgan, CN and CP permitted to lie. American oil monopoly profits maybe? The Hi Tension hydro lines along the Finch utility corridor would melt and much of the GTA would go dark. The natural gas lines would start blowing up and have to be turned off. Hundreds of house and condo would be destroyed with continuing loss of life. North General Hospital would be flattened along with churches, synagogues, schools and community centres. Hundreds of businesses would be destroyed along with billion in inventory. And you know what Enbridge would do??? They would declare bankruptcy like M. M and A at Megantic did and just bugger off. The shareholders of Enbridge would lose everything. Their stock would be worthless. However the executives of Enbridge, like Al Monaco / Leon Zupan would cash in their chips and move on never to be pursued by the Post or Globe or any government. That’s what bribes are for aren’t they? It would seem that everyone of consequence in this matter has deserted the people in return for oil money. Now Enbridge is threatening to close the line if the NEB says no to the reversal. That’s great. In earlier posts I explained how the Canadian Provincial Energy Corp, after building the Twin Beaver pipeline from Fort McMurray to Toronto and Montreal would need an existing Ontario / Quebec pipeline for distribution. I suggested back then expropriating Enbridge No # 9. But if the clods at Enbridge close No # 9 in a snit because they can’t have their own way like Harper does, good. Then CPEC will be able to get Nine for a song. My Twin Beaver pipeline idea [ twin pipes carrying crude oil and nat. gas from Fort McMurray to Toronto / Montreal /Maritimes. This idea is getting cheaper with each passing day.

*********************************************************************

I was prompted to write this piece in response to an Editorial about the tar sands in Paul Godfrey’s National Post. This Editorial was all about misinforming YOU, making a sucker out of YOU. Those who write for the Post would have done well in Goebbel’s Propaganda Ministry. Said newspaper was started by a big time loser and convicted criminal, [ Conrad Black ] who has spent his lifetime cheating, lying and stealing. I was in business for more than 50 years. I never went broke and my businesses were not founded on theft so I am qualified to speak on what an honest business should look like. There are a few very weak minded people who have written letters to the Godfrey’s paper praising the Conman as being a great Canadian businessman. Businessman my ass. Conrad, while illegally in this Country, lives in Harperland with his best buddy Steve. Someone he got to know back in Neo Nazi days. With Black and Steve everything gets made up, they formulate their own laws and they continually tell lies and are fully backed by the $ media. Black started cheating students when he was a teenage at UCC and never stopped stiffing people since then. He stole a business from two unsuspecting widows. Conrad purloined the worker’s pension fund at Dominion Stores among other heists. Black continually threatens to sue people who cross him. Imagine a Canadian disagreeing with his Lordship, terrible. When one sits on the right hand of Herr Harper one is beyond the reach of the little people as Lady Black likes to call us. The National Post has lost money since the day it opened. It is said that the Paper lost $ 210 million before Conrad even sold it. See, he even stiffed the buyers of the Post. Again, Black good at business, my ass. The whole shebang went broke and his investors lost. That’ll larn em. Black is poison to investors, they can’t win. Connie either loses investors money or steals it. Blackie has destroyed every company he ever touched. The derelict Post was bought by a New York hedge fund, something that is illegal. Our media must be majority owned by Canadians. The National Post setup breaks the law but who ever heard of Harper respecting Canadian law??? Soon Lyin Steve will be plucking dissenters off the streets with no recourse. The Post is written expressly for the hard right wing and the Fascist establishment. They are so few in number that the Paper can’t actually make any money. When your only business is selling rotting fish it can be a problem. Black should have known better than to start the Post to cater to an audience made up of white supremacists, anti gay / anti abortion zealots, Nietzsche cult members who think themselves exceptional, religious intolerants, anti democrats, Sociopaths, cheats, liar, thieves, anti human rights commission supporters, right wing Supreme Court Justices and anti educational types. BellMedia caters to the same market. The Alberta Report magazine which was started by Ted Byfield in 1979 covered all the same ground as outlined above and went bankrupt in 2003. There were just not enough Canadians willing to buy Ted’s tripe even with the support of Preston Manning, Stephen harper and the Reform Party. Business is business. Political and religious activities don’t mix in well. Balance is the key. Harper and his band of Fascists are really a very small group who are limited to stealing elections in order to grab power. To gain traction in a democracy where the aim is to take control from the citizenry the right with the aid of the $ media MUST RIG ELECTIONS AND CHEAT, just as Hitler did. This is what the Republicans were / are / will be up to in the USA. That is why that Country is in such tough shape. Harper is dragging us into the same dark alley fully supported by the newspapers, magazines, TV and radio. The Tea Party is a small US outfit supported by unlimited oil monopoly money and look at the problems they have caused. The Tea Baggers have no respect for the US system of democracy. Most of them are Sociopaths who lie and who believe in their own lies. Our Harper has graduated from being a Sociopath to a Psychopath due to his killing Quebecers in Megantic. I have been watching Herr Harper for 30 years and he has always told lies and run away when times got tough. I could never figure out how the press were so soft on Harper? A man like his Grandfather, mentally ill. Then a journalist spilled the beans. Conrad Black saw promise in the young wimp, Steve Harper. So Connie instructed the editors of his many Canadian papers to keep a thumb on the scale in terms of the boy who would be king. Now these instructions did not affect the other papers but, but, but, individual journalistsat other papers in this Country were ever mindful of future job opportunities. So Canadian patriots as they are, chose to go along with Black to get along. Or get a job? They did not want to be removed from Black’s list of potential employees so they went easy on Stevie. Some patriots. So our little Stevereeno was permitted to tell his lies, run away, then return and he was never called on the carpet. After 30 years of living in Harperland, his lying has landed him in big trouble over the Senate scandal and lying to Parliament. Harper is so used to lying and having nobody question him or talk back. Now he is faced with Tom Mulcair, Justin Trudeau, Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Patrick Brazeau. They are all back talking and Harper doesn’t know what to do about it? It is important for Steve to have pansies like Nigel Wright around him. Who knows where silent Nige is right now? Shivering in a closet. Thus Steve is now left to keep repeating his previous lies over and over, again and again. I’ve got an idea. Why don’t we seize Nigel and put him on the rack. A little stretching and I am sure he would come clean. If we had anything other than an obedient Harper press, Wright would have been hunted down long ago and we’d now have the real story. Hitler controlled the press by force. Harper controls the press with threats and oil monopoly cash. Now knowing the friendship of Harper and Black in the early days you can see why Steve let this criminal into our Country. The Conman destroyed his newspaper empire and ran away to the UK. Then Connie was jailed in the USA and disowned by the Brits. Now Black is in Canada because he is afraid to face London England. We must put Harper in jail and then Conrad will be a goner. The next Government in Ottawa will put Lord and Lady Black in steerage on a cattle boat bound for London England. I’d even help pay their fare.

**********************************************************************

There is one small item in a National Post column [ may 10 / 13 ] by the BIG MOUTH, David Booth, that speaks large to the kind of Paper Paul Godfrey runs. As you know I hate GM products. They have always manufactured rust buckets and still do to -day. In aviation we solved rust and corrosion 75 years ago. My last GM was a 1974 Chev, awful. As you walk through a mall look around. The rusty cars are GM, Chrysler and Ford, always have been, always will be. They save a little money not using undercoat and the vehicles don’t last. In terms of the VOLT, I hate this piece of junk even more. GM fell behind Toyota by ignoring the Prius and the Motors scrapped their EV1 electric car as soon as the omission restrictions in California were defeated by George Bush Jr., the American oil monopoly, GM and Ford. So this bunch worked their evil to ensure that the kids in California would continue to suffer from high rates of asthma. Thus Generous Motors ended up having no hybrid and no electric car. The management got caught with their flaps down. A GM executive even called the Prius a Geekmobile. Ya right, Toyota has $ 16 billion in cash in the bank. GM eat your heart out. The Company had crushed all of the EV1 after they promised to keep them. So how could GM recover from their bout with idiocy. The Company came up with an idea for a car that was half fish and half bird. Something that couldn’t swim and couldn’t fly, typical GM fare. The VOLT was the result, a millstone which was classified as a hybrid by the American Society of Automotive Engineers [ SAE ]. However GM decided to sell it as an electric car and then claimed it was far better than the rest of the electrics. It was and is a hoax. The VOLT had tremendous range GM said, something electric cars can’t promise. This was accomplished by connecting the engine to a generator. So far so good. Then GM attached the other end of the generator to the wheels. The Company said since the engine was not directly connected to the wheels it was an electric car. The SAE said otherwise. I think McGuinty got paid off by GM [ another monthly cheque for our boy Dalt ] because he promoted the VOLT as an electric car. Devious Dalt even wrote special Ont. Legislation to give the VOLT a considerable advantage over the competition. So much for free enterprise. I am convinced McGuinty still gets payoffs from the nukies, the oilies and GM. I think even though the McGuint is hiding down in Harvard his graft payments are still going to his wife in their free nukie house. To design an electric car that is actually a hybrid underneath required much more gadgetry and electronics. So the VOLT owner has to pay for a lot more machinery that either an electric car or a hybrid contains. That is why the price is so much higher. Now GM is giving the VOLTs away, losing at least $10,000 per copy. Not a wise move seeing that the Company is $ 60 billion in debt. The saying, so goes General Motors, so goes the USA could not be more true. David Booth of the Post is obviously on the GM payroll. In almost every one of his columns Dave says something nice about GM even if he has to make it up. Dave must be getting oil monopoly cheques now too because he is writing oil monopoly propaganda. I have watched for a number of years trying to find out if Booth even owns a tool box. I clip his columns. He writes a good game but it is the small items that give him away as a phony. In my view Booth doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground in terms of car mecanicals. He is primarily a journalist who dabbles in autos and sells his soul to the highest bidder. He always calls the VOLT an electric car which I have said IT IS MOST DECIDEDLY NOT THE CASE. In any event, his May 10 / 13 piece finally answered my question. Therein Booth made the following statement which, fits nicely into the Harperland atmosphere of present day National Post. I quote him, ” The Prius hybrid is most definitely not an electric car. Purists [ example SAE * KS ], always the contrarians [ anyone who disagrees with Booth * KS ], take the opposite tact, defining an electric vehicle as anything powered by batteries alone [ SAE * KS ]. By this definition [ SAE * KS ] then the Chevy VOLT is not an electrical vehicle [ SAE * KS ]. But we at [] Post Driving [] consider the VOLT AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE “. So there you have it. I would guess the Post Driving Department is really made up of David Booth, a receptionist and the guy who takes out he garbage. It is this Nietzsche myth again. Deciding you are an exceptional person based on no proof or test. This is the newspaper world of to – day, make it up, print spin, publish oil monopoly propaganda and Harper’s attack ads. So if Paul Godfrey / Dave Booth decide a bushel of apples is really apple juice then that is the world we now live in and accept. A democracy is at its’ best when populated with educated voters. The hard right seeks to do the opposite, keep the masses ignorant. And that is what David Booth is up to. He wants you to be stupid. How much longer will it be before there is a knock in the night, no trial, the rumble of the cattle car wheels on the tracks and the concentration camp gate clanging behind those who disobey Herr Harper??? Don’t look to Steve’s trained seal MPs or his Fascist Senators for relief. They serve a madman backed by unlimited American oil monopoly money.

*******************************************************************

Oh yes, Paul Godfrey’s Post Editorial [ Oct. 22 / 13 ]. The title is, ” Helping Alberta’s oil reach the world “. First off, the only thing being shipped out of Canada these days is tar mixed with Benzine. To call these resources OIL is just another one of the lies Godfrey tells with each issue of the Post. But that is what Paul is paid to do. His Editorial is not meant to inform you. It is meant to brainwash you. The Editorial mentions OIL twelve times. This piece was written by public relations people working for the American oil monopoly. The monopoly badly needs pipelines to get the tar out of Alberta. Using obsolete rail tank cars is only a stop gap measure. CP / CN know that. These rail companies are not going to invest in new tankers. The building of the Keystone to the USA and Gateway / Kinder Morgan pipelines through the Rockies are a foregone conclusions. They will be forced on Canadians by Harper backed by oil monopoly money. If you are following the railroading of Duffy, Wallin and Brazeau in the Senate you can see how much your rights are worth? Fuck all. These senators are insiders and they have had their rights stripped away by Harper. But being a Psychopath Steve never plunges the knife in himself. The sixteen Psychopathic behaviours are listed on the net. Much of the creepy behaviour applies to Harper. One of them is the need to find weak people who can be manipulated and made to follow orders like John Tory. Canada may have gone past the point of no return? By stealing the 2011 election backed by oil monopoly money our democracy may now be out of reach. The Republicans aided by the oil monopoly eliminated democracy in California. Now matter what the majority wants in Calif. their will has no force in law. The oilies run that State now with the assistance of Republican lackeys. It is interesting that in Godfrey’s Editorial bitumen is mentioned only once, in relation to the railways. This is code for the pipelines are carrying OIL but the trains are carrying tar. The way this story is going to unfold is this. More than 70% of rail tank cars in Canada can’t legally carry Benzine. They are obsolete. But since Harper had turned CN / CP free to do as they see fit the railways are going haul as much Alberta Tar / Benzine as they possibly can over the short run. The general feeling is that the pipelines will eventually be built, Harper and the American oil monopoly will see to that. It doesn’t matter what Canadians think. Why would the railways invest in new tankers if the tar / rail business is going to eventually peter out? So the thrust by CN / CP will be to ship as much tar / Benzine as they can in the short run and ignore environmental damage, destruction to the lifestyles of those who live along the tracks and pay no attention to the deaths caused by derailments. The railways are going to run this sucker at max speed with the full support of the US oil monopoly, Herr Harper, CN / CP and the petro $ media [ Globe / Post ]. There are only two ways we can stop the Alberta Tar / Benzine scourge. Replace the Harper dictatorship. Or allow the bodies to continue to pile up. There will be a tipping point herein where Canadians finally say enough is enough. But by then the only option open may be an armed uprising of the people. Just as this post goes to bed Kathleen Wynne announced she will support the Enbridge reversal of Pipe No # 9. Wynne has obviously decided that the chances of Ontarians frying from exploding Benzine is rather remote. And that there will not be too many deaths. This is the kind of thinking that brought us Megantic. Lady Black would say, that the little people are expendable. Lady Wynne apparently agrees.
Maybe we should consider building a memorial at Queen’s Park on which to subscribe the names of Ontarians who die from the Black Death, either from being burned to a crisp or from the inhalation of Benzine gas?
***************************************************************

EXTRA EXTRA — All week long the debate on the Senate scandal has raged. Lyin Steve did not do well. Harper was peppered with questions which he did not answer clearly. In some of the exchanges Harper altered his story. This is a man who has been telling lies for 30 years and many of them have been verified after the fact. It was with great surprise that I heard about a broadcast on Bell Media Radio 1010 / CFRB which featured Stephen Harper being interviewed by John Tory. According to the net the interview last 6 minute. Now this is a PM who seldom answers anybody’s questions and rarely grants interviews. All of a sudden Harper appeared on CFRB on extremely short notice [ and other Bell Media radio stations across Canada ]. This, after the proceedings in the House had ended for the week. Now it is permissible in time of crisis for the Prime Minister to commandeer ALL radio / TV stations to speak about important national issues. But Harper appeared on only one network and just repeated the same things he has been saying for months. Where is the emergency? But Steve went further, he took punches at people who were not given the right by Bell Media to defend themselves or answer to his charges. Bell Media, which has business dealings with the Government by way of large subsidies looks to have granted Harper special privileges to say things that should have been said in the House. The Canadian air waves belong to the people, not to Harper and George Cope of Bell Media. For all I know this Harper / Tory broadcast could have gone out all across the Nation. Bell Media has many radio stations from sea to sea. It is obvious that some / all of them have been used to disseminate this Government propaganda. I am going to write a letter to the CRTC, the Commissioner of Complaints for Telecommunications Services and others in regards to this matter. We can’t have broadcasters cozying up to the Government and telling only one side of the story. This is the kind of thing that happened in Nazi Germany. Only one voice was heard. Dissenters were not only not allowed equal time on the air, many of those who disagreed with Hitler were shot. When do we see a repeat of this in Canada. Harper is getting close, he is already busy building new jails. In the matter of this special appearance Steve has been much aided by Bell Media. Do we as owners of the air waves allow George Cope to use them as the means to secure Government favours?

LAC – MEGANTIC / THE FIERY ALBERTA TAR AND BENZINE EXPLOSION / ADDENDUM 12/10/13

DilBitI have written 3 posts on the derailment and fire of a CP Rail train in Megantic. In parroting CP / Harper Government lies about the contents of the train the petro $ media said what was spilled was oil. Then the jiournalists changed their tune and said that the spillage was from the Bakken oil field in North Dakota. Right from the get go those in the know knew what had exploded was Liquified Crude Bitumen [ tar mixed with Benzine ]. This tar slurry [ DilBit ] is not classified as oil, never has been, never will be. They call it just for fun, Western Select Crude Oil. It is like declaring that Coke is chocolate milk, just as stupid. Or maybe dishonest or even devious? The American oil monopoly, the pipelines, the rail companies and the $ media can no longer be trusted. They all have noses so long their snoots go to the moon. Then the Safety Inspection team let the cat out of the bag saying that CP Rail had lied about the Megantic train contents. Worse still was another CP train back up the line, supposedly carrying petroleum products had been mislabeled too. Another load of the Black Death. Whoever is around that train is in grave danger. Grave is indeed the operative word. Nobody is safe from the Alberta Tar where ever they are hiding it. One little spark and poof you and your family are crispy critters. In the trains and pipelines that are carrying the Black Death the mix is 2/3rds tar and one third Benzine. It is the Benzine part the monopoly, pipelines, railways and the $ media want to keep from you. There are safety regulations concerning Benzine, a known Carcinogen. Any exposure whatsoever can cause health problems. There is a Benzine Protocol formulated by the Provincial Ministers of the Environment [ not Quebec ] restricting the movement, shipping and storage of Benzine. It is a Canada wide standard. Provinces are responsible for health matters. It is clear that TransNotCanada, Enbridge, Kinder Morgan, CN and CP are breaking those standards and that is why the $ media is paid so well to cover up the shipping of Alberta Tar. Each of the Provinces is obligated to step in and stop the shipment of Benzine across this Country until the regulations are met. In Burnaby BC the ground at the Kinder Morgan Alberta Tar spill is soaked with Benzine and many people got sick. These people have no doubt suffered long term health problems from exposure to the Benzine gas.This will include the first responders who are not told that they dealing with tar / Benzine. The pipelines / railways keep the Oil Lie going as long as they can. Talk about Hitler’s gas chambers. We have them right here in Harperland. The soil in the centre of Megantic is saturated in Benzine. So what are the authorities going to do. Well do nothing about the centre of Town and leave it Benzine soaked. This is especially dangerous for the very young and the very old. Did Hitler care about those he was sending to their deaths? Does Herr Harper care? The answer is no. An Enbridge spokesperson who has completed his Course on Lying #101 at te Preston Manning Institute said,” The reversal of Pipe No. #9 all across Ontario will mean great economic benefit and minimal risks “. Let me tell you what he really meant. Reversing No. #9 will allow us to transport Liquified Crude Bitumen to Port Arthur Texas USA, via the Atlantic. ” The economic benefits will be great for Enbridge and the risks will be all yours “. This has been Lyin Steve’s plan all along. Transfer the wealth of Canada to his American friends in oil and on the right. I am amazed that Joe Oilier can tell so many lies. Nothing that comes out of Joe’s mouth is true. This blog is read extensively in the UK and Europe. I can say to my friends over the pond. When Oiliver visits you and starts flapping his gums, ignore him. There was a huge Oil spill as in Oil in the Bakken oil field. 20,600 barrels let go before the operator knew there was a spill. It didn’t blow up because there was NO BENZINE INVOLVED. At first the petro $ media said it was a thousand barrel spill. So much for the truth again. Mind all the papers just got their $ 100,000 junk ads for singing the American oil monopoly company song. Harper announced a $ 24 million ad campaign to promote Keystone and Gateway. This money belongs to the taxpayers. This campaign will insure that the Harper press will continue to mislead you and tell lies. Kind of neat. Canadians paying for ads to promote the theft of our natural resources and to undermine our democracy with the goal in mind of having the oil monopoly become our overlords. This is rule by the minority on the right. This goes way back to the Nietzsche myth as preached by the Republicans 100 years ago. The wonderful world of wimps. All a young Sociopath has to do is self declare himself exceptional and he is immediately at one with the Republicans and Harper’s Fascists. Women need not apply as this is a white male only club. In terms of the Benzine being transported there is a certain percentage that is fumes or gas. Syria has just agreed to the UN inspection of its’ stores of poisonous gas. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons [ OPCW ] is tasked with that job. When the Syrian inspection is completed I would like to see the team come to Canada and work with the Provinces on the damage Benzine has done in Burnaby BC, Megantic Que. and Landis Sask. The UN has the scientists who can determine compliance with the existing Canadian Benzine protocol. If the areas as listed above OPCW should require the American oil monopoly to remove all of the afflicted soil and dispose of it in a legal and responsible manner. Maybe the Benzine soaked soil can be spread in the backyards of the monopoly executives in Calgary. let’s see how their wives and kids do breathing in the toxic Benzine gas.

**********************************************************

Here is a heads up. I have always been a political animal. I voted in Diefenbaker’s first election. Dief was a vindictive, one man band who wanted to run everything his own way. Who does that remind you off? Yes Lyin Stve. I then worked for Trudeau. I backed Mulroney until I found out he was a crook. Since then my vote has gone to the Liberals or NDP. In Ontario I worked for Frost, Robarts and Bill Davis. From Frank Miller,to Peterson and Bob Rae I took a pass. I worked for Mike Harris when the PCs came to office. And Mike’s second election after which I bailed. That story is told in other posts. Since then I have voted NDP. In 1973 I was elected to Pickering Council for a 3 year term. I lost in a By – Election and lost again seeking a second term. One win and two losses. As a real businessman I had no more time to play political games with the People or Planes protest group. Democracy during the time of their activities ceased in North Pickering. I say these things in order to justify what I am going to say. Bad things are piling up for Stephen Harper. He is mentally ill and this illness runs in his family. The only reason he is PM because he is propped up by money from the American oil monopoly and backed unswervingly by the petro $ media. I have been watching Harper since he started hanging around the University of Calgary. Where vulnerable young men are recruited into the ranks of the hard right and where they are taught to not thinking for themselves at all. The program at the U of Calgary is fashioned after the Hitler Youth system. During the late stages of the War [ 1944 / 45 ] our troops ran into the fanatical Hitler Youth. The only way to subdue them was to kill them. They were like mad dogs. They had been turned into robots after years of indoctrination. Early in Harper’s mandate I became a Director of the Prince Edward / Hastings CPC Riding Association. Daryl Kramp is the MP. I remained a PC but got involved just to test drive Harper. After a year an a half I bailed, I had seen enough. It scared the hell out of me. The Government had gathered the names of people in each riding and there were discussions about targeting certain groups. I never heard about the Robo Calls. But now I understand where the Government was headed. A couple of discussions centred around manipulating young people and indoctrinating them. I argued against such practices but I was told I didn’t know what a real Conservative was by a 28 something green sprout. From that time forward I have used the Harper Youth term many times. First in letters and then in this blog. I expect to see Steve bolt. He has done it before whenever the going gets rough. Out of High School Harper went to the U of T and lasted 2 month. He then fled to Calgary where his Dad got him a job [ 1978 ] at Imperial Oil in the mailing room, licking stamps. The official Harper history says he went into the oil business in 1978. Steve is a complete phony who pretends to be all sorts of things that he is not. Like his new Judge Nadon. Of course the $ media won’t say a word. I will say to my many viewers across the globe, yes Canada has a crazy for a leader. But Steve is running into some heavy sledding right now. However Harper likes to create his own reality. Will life favour him by giving Steve what he wants, when he wants it? I think not. Earlier on in 1980 Steve fell under the spell of Tim Flanagan at the U of Calgary. Tom is an American draft dodger who ran away when his Country called. So Harper comes by it honestly, the impulse to run when the first shot is fired. Let’s just see if the boy Steve does another bailout when he loses control of the agenda and of HIS Fascist Party. The oilies will abandon Steve in a blink if he can’t deliver Canada into their arms. The monopoly will throw a useless Steve under the bus just like he did to Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Nigel Wright.

**********************************************************

Get in touch with your MP and MPP. Tell him or her that you don’t like the thought of your children / grandkids being fried. The shipping of poisonous / highly flammable Benzine across this Country has to stop. This is being done just to put money in the pockets of the American oil monopoly. I don’t think so.

**********************************************************

Harper is a boy who would be king. This phony didn’t play hockey, nor he did serve in the military, he doesn’t use a rifle, he doesn’t fish [ maybe the worm thing? ] and won’t get on a motorcycle. When we pull back the curtain which the petro $ media refuses to do. We see a wannabe emperor who has no balls at all. I watch Lyin Steve VERY closely. When he starts to turn to jelly again and is getting ready to flee I will give you a heads up.

LAC – MEGANTIC TRAIN DERAILMENT AND EXPLOSION / part two / A VISIT FROM THE BLACK DEATH / STEPHEN HARPER IS REPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATHS AND DESTRUCTION OF THE TOWN / HE SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH MURDER / THESE ARE THE LAST FATALITIES WE WILL ACCEPT * BOUGHT ON THE ALTAR OF MONEY AND POWER BY LYIN STEVE AND THE AMERICAN OIL MONOPOLY 11/ 07/13

Stephen Harper has been fashioning this tragedy in Lac – Megantic since he came to power. He is turning the Country over to his employers [ the American oil monopoly ] and giving the pipeline / rail companies free rein. Harper deregulated the railways. Meaning that he pulled most of the inspectors off the job. As well Steve turned a blind eye to the fact that the pipelines and railways were breaking the laws with impunity. And severely endangering all Canadians The transportation of flammable liquids comes under strict rules. The pipelines and railways are ignoring the rules, paying off the politicians and lying to the regulatory officials. The result the innocent are turned into crispy critters. The Kinder Morgan toxic tar spill in Burnaby BC, the Enbridge tar spill in Kalamazoo Mich., the EXXON Alberta tar spill in Mayflower Arka. and the tar spill in Lac-Megantic have gone largely uninvestigated. There is no reason to see a change in these coverups until the bodies are piled high enough for the public to become aroused.  Lyin Steve neutered the agencies in charge of the petroleum industry [ Transport Canada, the Nat. Transportation Safety Board, the National Energy, Environment   Canada and Natural Resources ]. I have been making this point for years to the petro $ media [ especially the Star, Globe, Post and Sun. ] But there has never been any acknowledgement of my concerns about the deadly black cocktail that is criss crossing the Country and down into the US. Namely  tar mixed with Zippo lighter fluid [ benzine and naptha are components of Hi Octane gasoline ]. I keep using the term lighter because people are familiar with its’ deadly potential. Over time it has become clear that Harper and his Facists followers have been well rewarded cashwise by the oilies for their betrayal of OUR Country.  They are modern day Fifth Columnists supported by oil money. Stealing this Country from under our noses. The media too was and is being paid by the oil monopoly in return for publishing favourable coverage, spin, lies, self censorship and regurgitating oilie propaganda [ CAPP ]. The coverup of the Black Death being piped / trained everywhere in Canada could only happen with aquiescence of the TV / newspapers [ not the CBC ].  If the media had been telling us the truth over the past half dozen years this loss of life at Lac-Megantic would never have happened. Steve’s plans to turn over control of Canada to the US oil monopoly would have been exposed long ago. and we could have put a stop to it.  As it is the media,  particularly Paul Godfrey’s National Post [ owned by Americans ] and David Thomson’s Globe and Tar get hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising from the oil monopoly. This is the reason Paul Godfrey and David Thomson print oilie propaganda exclusively. Calling the Black Death //  O I L  \\  is running 1000 to one in the $ media. A thousand mentions of a substance that kills being shipped as oil to only one mention of the truth, that is raw Alberta tar [ DilBit, the real cargo ]. Leaving the word DilBit out of articles is worth pure gold to the likes of Rex Murphy, Andrew Coyne and Claudia Cattaneo.  In this case too many Quebecers have died partly as a result of media greed and the shills [ those who do the dirty work for the monopoly ] who actually write the bogus stuff. The largest percentage of the victims were far too young to be sacrificed, this only in pursuit of greed, power and the bottom line.  Wall St.’s  bottom line to boot.  Stephen Harper should be ARRESTED AND TRIED FOR MURDER. Most of the Nazis tried at Nuremberg were hanged for orchestrating the deaths of millions. They didn’t actually commit the crimes personally. Harper set the stage for Lac-Megantic all by himself.  I buy 4 newspapers a day to survey how far the rabid right wing is prepared to go in converting Canada into an oligarchy, controlled by US oil monopoly executives. The Papers are the Toronto Star, the Globe and Oil, the National Post and the Toronto Sun.  Each one of them is on the of the Harper / oil monopoly payroll.  I access the CBC on TV. I still see Joe Oiliver, David Collyer  and Russ Girling teling their lies but the other side of the story is made available on th CBC. No wonder Lyin Steve wants rid of the CBC.  In the Harper press / TV the other side of the story is NEVER TOLD.  I also do research on the net, it is the only place you can find the truth and GET BOTH SIDES OF THE STORY. Harper is now trying to strangle the CBC by any means possible. And I also search out comments from independant bloggers and English Newspapers particularly [ the Guardian / Independent ]. It is interesting, after a week of kissing the asses of oil monopoly executive by Canadian petrol $ media it fell to the Guardian [ UK ] to call a spade a spade. The Paper calls what happened in Lac – Megantic a CORPORATE CRIME. Right on. Imagine, in Canada, having to turn to a UK paper to find out the real story. That is how dangerous our media is. They lie to us everyday. Please wake me up when Joe Oiliver tells the truth. This is also a Harper Facist Government CRIME, aid and abetted by the Star, Globe, Post [ chain ], Sun [ chain ], CTV, Global News and others [ not the CBC ]. I was particularly stuck by the July 9 / 13 issue of the Globe and Tar in regards to the lengths to which David Thomson’s Paper went to snuggle up and indeed kiss oilie asses. The Globe keeps repeating that the train in Megantic was carrying //  LIGHT OIL  \\.  Investigators have yet to say what the cargo was. The reason  Thomson keeps using the term light oil is a fear by the oil monopoly Canadians will find out it was Alberta tar mixed with lighter fluid that blew up in Megantic.  It is as if to the Globe the survivors of Lac – Megantic, Quebecers and Canadians did /do not exist. This is what happens when a newspaper like the Globe is on the receiving end of an endless number of full page oil ads at a $ 100,000 a pop.  Many such ads have been printed in Thomson’s Globe in recent days. The American oil monopoly can’t just give Thomson money to throw the fight. But it can place never ending full page ads to influence David’s coverage of megantic. The never seeing any evil monkey. Ad money trumps printing the other side of the story. At any time in the last 4 years Thompson could have blown the whistle on Harper, the oil monopoly and the Black Death. But Dave prefered / prefers  cold cash to the hard truth. Thomson prefers US Wall St. domination to seeing Canadians live free.  David is more interested in his own pocket than the future of Canada. Thomson also fools the average oil stock investor. He facilitates brokerage bottom lines.  I have all of the Globe’s energy articles in my files along with those from the other papers going well back. I also have the oil advertisments that bought / buy allegiance going way back. From these ads we could determine how many oil millions have been paid to the newpapers to betray YOU. THE PEOPLE OF LAC – MEGANTIC  HAVE BEEN BETRAYED. YOU HAVE BEEN BETRAYED. From my files we could get an idea of just what this Country is really worth in dollars and cents to Thomson, Post, Sun, Star and the US oil monopoly. Of course in every encounter, Dave, the other papers and the oilies win. They rig the game in their own favour.  We, Canadians are always the losers. Even the last election was stolen by Harper using oil money.  With the Toronto Star my collection of clippings goes back even farther, more than 8 years. These cover the years that the Star, Rob Prichard and John Honderich shilled for the nukies. And the Star is still taking nukie money.  For each of the papers I could write a book on the false and misleading information printed as well as the lies, corporate propaganda and connect each with extensive advertising campaigns by the rich and powerful. I can identify all the journalists who chose money over the welfare of this Nation.  The papers mentioned bear much of the responsibility for Canada’s now , much weakened democracy and specifically the Lac – Megantic trainwreck. I am going to push for laws which will jail the media moguls too [ Thompson, Godfrey, Peladeau and Honderich ] who publish lies, false and misleading copy that is damaging to this Country. Freedom of the press doesn’t mean selling out to the highest bidder and telling American oil monopoly lies in retrun for fat cheques. For a long time I have had a running battle with the Globe over inserts in the Paper under the heading ” Information Supplement “. These are advertising sections and are written to look like news columns [ they are meant to fool you ]. Thomson gets paid extra by advertisers for such  phony news columns. This subterfuge is not acceptable under Ontario Press Council rules but the OPC will do nothing about it.  When I complained about the Globe I struck out. The Press Council manager just yawned, he operates an industry front and runs interference for the papers The OPC is a sham.  I complained to Advertising Standards Canada too but that organization is just another industry front, from them I got nothing but silence. another sham. This is how our democracy is going to die. By having thousands of weak minded individuals like Andrew Coyne, Margaret Wente and Rex Murphy [ best termed  stenographers ] writing oil /  nuclear / corporate copy. They too chose to take money over Canada. You know, like the Nazi pencil pushers. They too are just following orders in return for a pay cheque. There has been hell to pay in New York State. The Attorney General, Eric T. Schneiderman has demanded that Thomson Reuters [ owned by David Thomson ] stop providing insider information to the rich in advance of the public / little stock investors being informed about crucial corporate information. This allows David himself to profit from the wide practice of insider trading.  David charges $ 6000 per month per stock firm for advanced info. This is without doubt criminal activity. And this is exactly how the rich get richer. Barbara Black’s famous little people get charged by the police for defending their stores against robbery. Thomson robs the public but walks.  Barb, little people herself, was born in London’s [ UK ] Jewish east end. Babs has spent a lifetime trying free herself from the ranks of the untermensch.  Barb indeed made it to money status. Even though Conrad stole the money. How is distributing insider information by Thomson any different than accepting US oil monopoly ad money in return for  publishing lies and  favourable spin?  Or sticking up banks for that matter. The Globe regularly features Gywn Morgan, formerly CEO with SNC – Lavalin who has been involved in criminal activities with a number of other firms over the years [ check the net to see what this crook Morgan is really all about, he loves other people's money ]. Gwyn and his wife live in a $ 7.5 million house in BC.  No doubt he bought the house with cheat money. And David Thomson features Gwyn. The Globe loves law breakers. You know like Conrad Black who made a career out of taking other people’s cash, even his employee’s pension money. The public is told that the Conman is a great Canadian businessman. Bullshit. Black destroyed every business that came into his hands. I wouldn’t have Gwyn and Conrad and their wives over for dinner the are so disreputable. They’d probably steal my silverware.  SNC threw Morgan under the bus to show their disgust with his behaviour.  But Thomson still gives Gwyn space to spout his discredited right wing nonsense and polish his halo. Morgan worked for Christy Clark which shows you where she is at in the scheme of things. Also still appearing in the Globe is Tom Flanagan, an American draft dodger and perv who helped Herr Harper launch his political career at the University of Oil in Calgary. That two bit University was built with oil monopoly money. Thomson claims Flanagan to be a Distiguished Fellow at the University. Tom is an American who ran away when his Country called. Maybe Lyin Steve learned about  running away from trouble from Flanagan? The University of Calgary is the centre for regime change in Canada backed by the US oil monopoly. And the University launders oil money and distributes the dough to climate deniers including those at Carleton University in Ottawa.  Another of Thomson’s stars  at the Globe is one Preston Manning who operates a phony educational  Institution in Calgary which runs on taxpayer’s dollars. Preston and his helpers Richard Ciano and Nick Kouvalis train Canadian Fascists, righties and the Harper Youth how to steal elections [ as happened in 2011 ].  Richard and Nick  have mounted a campaign against Tim Hudak to move the Ontario PCs into Herr Harper’s Fascist camp before the next vote. This Province’s next election is no doubt already being engineered by the American right. And Preston himself is busy gearing up to steal 2015.  On a regular basis Thomson publishes on his Comment and Analysis page in the Business Section the right wing blatherings of one Brian Lee Crowley. Another wimp who anointed himself an Uberman in the Nietzsche cult tradition. Brian sure looks like a real man doesn’t he?  Just like his friend Pierre Poilievre. I’ll bet they both drive Dodge Ram trucks with 550 cu in engines?  In the heading on each of Brian’s offerings in the Globe there appears one of his many lies. It says he is the Managing Director of something called the Macdonald – Laurier Institute [ Crowley probably operates out of a phone booth ]. And here is the interesting part. The   Mac. / Laur. Inst. is an extention of the PMO but it is descibed in Thomson’s Paper as an idependent non-partisan public policy think tank in Ottawa.  Just another Globe lie.  Crowley too operates on taxpayer’s nickel. Brian is non partisan my behind. Crowley like Ezra Le Rant works for Harper and takes orders from the PMO then concocts economic data to suit, to justify Government  initiatives. How much does Herr Harper actually pay David Thomson for his services? Attack ads / oil ads of course.  Brian Crowley is connected with right wing think tanks in the US and the Heartland Inst. [ the oil funded home of climate deniers in North America ]. He is a member of the secretive Civitas Society. Civitas is small right wing group funded by the rich. Lyin Steve and Preston Manning are both members. They are the ones [ Civitas ] who really run Canada. And they too are partly reponsible for the Lac – Megantic tragedy. The Civitas Society promotes corporate greed, the destruction of Medicare, eliminating pensions, curbs on education, the elimination of social programs for the mongrel mob [ us ],  reduced business taxes, the end of regulations for corporations [ the tar sands, pipelines and the railways ], the lowering of Canadians to slave status and other right wing causes like book burning. The US oil monopoly supports the Civitas Society as does David Thomson. The Civitas message is the same as we get from the Fraser Inst., C. D. Howe Inst., Canada West, Carleton University, the Montreal Economic Institute and the U of Calgary. Did you know they are all connected. Gwyn Morgan gave the Fraser Inst. a million bucks. No doubt laundered oilie money. Margaret Wente, an American and a plagiarizer, is another of the Globe’s featured stenographers. Marg, is an airhead who just writes what she is told, more false and misleading copy. Recently, when the Keystone pipeline was hot Wente was repeating the oilie line word for word. Lately she has been going on about nuclear. All the same nukie lies that go back 40 years. Wente is too stupid to think for herself. In fact Thomson should create a LIES section in the Globe and call it an information suppliment.  Where readers can go to get all their Fascist updates and false copy quickly and in one place. The foregoing is a short history of  just one newspaper [ a leading one at that ] bent on handing Canada over to the Americans. There are a hundred more such publications. Hiltler controlled the press by force. Herr Harper controls the press with oil money [ except the CBC and the Guardian UK ].  Do you really think David Thomson and the Globe would utter a single  disparaging  word about Herr Harper and his employer the American oil monopoly. Not bloody likely. Thomson can’t make any money telling the truth. There is more money to be made reprinting lies. There is no money to be made taking up the interests of Canadians and protecting them against tar / lighter fluid explosions. There is lots of money to be made kissing the asses of  Harper and oil monopoly executives though. The deaths at Lac – Megantic and the destruction of the Town are seen by Harper, the US oil monopoly, US pipelines, the US railways [ they are all owned by Wall St. hedge funds ] and petro $ media as just the cost to //  US  \\  of  //  THEM  \\  doing business. They take the money, we take the risks, including death. This possible fate awaits along every pipeline and railway in the Country. We bow too willingly and too often to the self anointed superior people it would seem. The rich / right [ Nietzsche inspired ] see the majority of Canadians as  mindless, undeserving untermenschs, to be controlled and exploited. They feel the sooner WE come to understand our place in the scheme of things  the better for THEM. This is the right wing’s idea of democracy. And the Globe and Tar makes money pushing their agenda. In fact our Lady Black famously said, ” The little people should know their place “. That’s YOU Babs is refering to, BY THE WAY. The question I have is this. Will you go willingly to the ovens at the time and place they decide???

*****************************************************************************************************

According to the petrol $ media we now know the causes of the the Lac – Megantic disaster. Tom Mulcair blamed Harper for the tragedy and Steve was. Since Megantic Stevie has run away. It isn’t the first time he has wimped out. The $ media would have us believe Tom started those fires,  polluted the ground with benzine and fouled the air / water ]. David Suzuki only spoke out about immigration problems. Even so, he is obviously partially to blame for Megantic. Some drunk who wandered over the police lines causing a huge problem [ he has to be included as one of the culprits of course  ]. And then there is the poor engineer who set the brakes which were probably faulty to begin with.  M, M and A. didn’t own the tankers. They were among the hundreds of obsolete tank cars rounded up to get the Alberta tar [ the Black death ] to the Gulf. The poor engineer was hung out to dry by M, M and A [ Mickey Mouse and Atlantic ].  CEO, Edward Burkhardt heaped blame on this guy without any proof whatsover. And the Harper media were quick to fall in line. Apparently the right to a fair trial or any trial at all has disappeared in Canada.  These are the scapegoat stories now being orchestrated by the PMO, among others. But you will note, not a whisper in the media about the cargo of Black Death [  raw bitumen ] .  Mixing tar with lighter fluid creates an even more lethal concoction than when they are individual substances.  Be assured, this toxic tar slurry will be coming to a place near you soon. On second thought, it is probably  already passing your window right now or maybe through a pipe under your front lawn. This is the big story the media is being paid to sit on. Thousands of Canadians facing ruin or death this very day because of Herr Harper.  What we have here is a two part accident that is being stage managed by Harper and the oil monopoly with the help of the petro $ media including the Globe and Tar. The first part, is the derailment of an overloaded train [ the little part ]. The second part, the lethal cargo, is the BIG PART. But the fact that this side of the story exists will never appear in the petro $ media. The papers / TV [ not the CBC ] are paid to censor the news in order to deflect blame away from those who are really responsible for this tragedy, Harper and his employers. This coverup is being done to  confuse Canadians and by extention, the world. It must be kept from people around the globe that this Nation is in the grip of the American oil monopoly like so many other third world countries. Delivered to the oilies by Lyin Steve and the petro $ media like the Globe and Tar.  The info that eminates from our turncoat media is fantasy,  spin, lies, omissions and oil propaganda. This is the visible part of the biggest deliberate fraud that North America has ever seen. The movement of dangerous tar / lighter fluid all gussied up to look  like  //  O I L   \\  . What is being shipped is not your run of the mill runny Vaseline type  //  O I L  \\. This here is the bitchy  //   O I L \\ .  It’s //   O I L  \\  with lots of attitude like EXOXN.  It’s //  O I L  \\  that will rear up and bite the ass off you if you create just the tiniest spark.  This fraud concerns an attempt by the US oil monopoly to get liquified Crude Bitument out of Alberta under our very noses, without obeying the regulations and on the cheap.  In the doing  the oilies are leaving behind a heap of toxic waste and polluted tailing ponds for the Albertans to clean up.  The removal of the raw tar is polluting the Province’s landscape, air and water. In fact the cost of putting things back right is gone way beyond Alberta’s ability to pay. As  happened in the past [ 1947, Leduc ] when Canada was forced to bail the Province out.  Albertans will take down their Harper firewall and come cap in hand to the rest of Canada looking for a bailout to deal with the deadly oilie  garbage.  This toxic tar / lighter fluid is being pumped or hauled to the Texas / California coasts to then be turned into //  O I L  \\  FOR THE WORLD MARKET.  DID YOU GET THAT?  THE WORLD MARKET.  NOT the Canadian market,  nor the American market as the Globe / Post and the other paid media [ CTV ] would have you believe.  I repeat, this  //  O I L   \\   is  NOT FOR Canada, NOT for the Americans, no matter what Joe Oiliver and the  Republican politicians say. They have all been paid off by the oilies. This  conspiracy involves Harper, the US oil monopoly, Enbridge, Kinder Morgan,  TransNotCanada,  CP / CN, the stock market, the $ media and others. Both members of the US Congress and our House of Commons have been well bribed in this regard. The raw tar mixed with Zippo lighter fluid [ naptha / benzine ] is required by the oil monopoly refineries that operate in Duty Free / Tax Free Zones  on the US Gulf / California coasts. These refineries pay NO AMERICAN TAXES.  In fact liquified Crude Bitumen is not  even considered to be  //  O I L   \\  BY  WASHINGTON.  As result EXXON, Enbridge, TransNot Canada, Kinder Morgan et al DO NOT PAY TAXES ON THIS TAR SLURRY WHICH IS BEING PUMPED / TRAINED ALL OVER NORTH AMERICA. But this is that old magician’s trick being used by the $ media on behalf of the oilies, now you see it, now you don’t.  For a couple of years the media has called DilBit  //  O I L   \\  . Next week they could call it strawberries? Or how about yogurt? If accompanied by a large oilie cheque the media will call anything anything the monopoly wants.  Even liquid Viagra, it doesn’t matter?  It’s the advertising cheque that counts to people like David Thomson of the Globe and Tar. The refineries on the Texas / California coasts, that can handle black tar were converted about 12 years ago to  process Venezuelan heavy oil, which is just a day away by ship. The Venezuelan Government was corrupt [ like the Harper Government is here ] and had been bought off while the peasants there could not afford food, to educate their children or receive medical care. Canada is not yet to that point but Lyin Steve is trying hard.  The US oil monopoly was assured of an endless supply of cheap, heavy oil with no cleanup necessary. Then the Venezuelans, led by Hugo Chavez revolted. This showed what a huge blunder the oil monopoly had made. The new, now useless refineries have cost oil stock holders billions. Hugo Chavez, the devil that he was, nationalized the Country’s oil industry [ Canada's next move ]. This cut the monopoly off from supplies of heavy oil, oops. Some of the smaller parts of the oil monopoly made deals with Chavez and agreed to a 32% royalty. You have got to remember those superior Albertans who are always mouthing it up give their Crude Bitumen away at a royalty rate of 8% on $ 40 a barrel of tar. The oil monopoly then turns around and sells that barrel for $ 106 after refining.  It is interesting that modern refining can extract an extra 2 gallons of product out of barrel of crude oil.  So letting the monopoly take the tar [ like raw logs of yesteryear ] means royalty on $ 40. That means a spread of $ 66 to the monopoly. Then the Americans get a 2 gallon bonus on top of that.  You also have to remember sometimes the oil monopoly cheats the poor saps in Edmonton out of their royalty. At times Albertans claim to be such a swift bunch, strutting about and such. You can catch this from all the right wing writers out of the west. But Harper has shown just how stupid Albertans are. Lyin Steve and his employer, the oil monopoly are picking their Western carcass clean and the $ media cheers them on.  And the Calgary petro media defends what amount to rape of it own people..  Pray tell me, which jurisdiction is in the 3rd world, Venezuela or Alberta? The oil monopoly majors would not play ball with Chavez and for a long time their refineries have been operating at 25% capacity. There is no money in running at 1/4 speed. Then one of them got the bright idea of using raw, unrefined tar from Fort McMurray but it had to be called  //   OIL   \\ as a means to cover up the dangerous truth. Even the tar sands name which had been around since the 1800s was labelled //  OIL   \\ sands.  This was repeated over and over to the media and drilled into reporters heads.  Never forget that it is  //  OIL \\. The words bitumen, tar, lighter fluid, naptha and benzine have been stricken from the English language all over Canada.  That’s what hundreds of millions in Oil money can do and exobitant gas prices can do. Canadians are paying the freight to dismantle their own hard won democracy .To be successful this whole tar operation had / has to be kept from Canadians and Americans by the media. That is what David Thomson is paid to do.  And it is working.  Crucial to what amounts to this theft of Provincial / Canadian  resources and the endangerment of Canadian and US citizens was the complete  surrender of the petrol $ media to the coverup cause. Complete obedience was and is  required from the papers and TV. This in return for millions of dollars of advertising hush money. David Thomson / Globe and Tar seems to be a major beneficiary of this scheme. His Paper leads the pack in promoting the oil monopoly pitch and get most of the ads. The tar [ it is NOT //  OIL   \\ until it is refined ] was / is pumped by pipe or trained to the Gulf  coast. And it goes by tanker from the BC coast to California [ not to Asia as Oiliver would have you believe ]. This toxic tar is refined and sold to the WORLD MARKET. The oilies make the huge profit margin of $ 40 on a barrel.  Alberta Premier Redford is running a deficit while the monopoly takes billions upon billions upon billions out of her Province. What P. T Barnum said is true, ” there’s a sucker born every minute ” and a lot of them live in the foothills of the Rockies. While the yahoos out there rail against the NEP and the east the Yankee oil monopoly are stealing them blind.  In fact BC could have had its’ very own Lac-Megantic.  The Kinder Morgan pipe was ruptured [ 2007 ] in Burnaby. You can watch the tar / benzine geyser on the internet.  Just a single spark could have burned out Burnaby and east Vancouver, just like in Lac-Megantic. But Vancouver is in a worse position yet because ships laden with liquified Crude Bitument leave through the Burrard Inlet every day. A fire on board one of these floating bombs would give us a repeat of the 1917 ship explosion in Halifax harbour. 1600 people were killed there by the blast and almost 10,000 were injured. You can see the cloud from that explosion in Halifax on the net. it is in black and white but it looks like Lac- Megantic. In Halifax the shock came and went.  Lac- Megantic blew and blew and blew as each tank car exploded. The Town burned for days.  If a ship blew up in the Vancouver narrows it would explode as each internal tank over heated and blew. The flaming benzine would fill the sky and the tar would burn for days. No doubt the fully engulfed ship would run aground somewhere because the crew would be crispy critters by then. And to think the only reason the tar is heading south to the Ruined States of America is to keep idle oil monopoly  refineries functioning. It is as plain and simple as that. Head wimp Harper knows which side his cheque is buttered on. And it is the only reason why we face all these risks, Thousands of innocent people on both sides of the border are being offered up as human sacrifices to the glory of the American oil monopoly.  Burn babies burn.  US law prevents the monopoly from shipping oil out of the US. Tar from Canada, going to the Gulf / Calif. is not considered American. Thus the monopoly can sell it at a huge profit with no American taxes. While Quebecers, Albertans and the rest of Canada gets shafted by Herr Harper. If there was a world oil crisis the monopoly might just sell gas /’diesel  to the highest bidder if they could get away with it. The monopoly was never trusted from 1932 to 1980 in the USA.  During the OPEC crisis the American Government, when it still represented the Untermenschs pass a law to prevent the monopoly from exporting oil. This would leave the little Yanks high and dry. This US law was brought in before Reagan.  This is the same kind of law that Pierre Trudeau passed in 1980. The NEP was meant to protect Canadians from a very greedy oil monopoly selling OUR OIL to the highest bidder somewhere else. And destroying Canada’s economy The oilies didn’t / don’t like Ottawa interfering in their business as they saw / see it. The monopoly believe THE OIL IN OUR WEST IS THEIR’S. Many a slow Albertan was misinformed over and over about the NEP back in the 1980s by the oilies, petro press in Calgary and Preston Manning.  Steve Harper, the wimp without a cause, found one in the NEP. A 25 year old from Ontario,  who took up a phony cause [ NEP ] and made someone elses’s battle his own. There are some in the west who have still not caught on to the lie about the NEP. Even to this present day. What oafs. In 2010 the oil monopoly took $125 billion in petroleum resources out of Alberta. The Province got back  8%, a little over $ 10 billion. And it is left with 175 accumulated tailing ponds of toxic sludge which Albertans are responsible for cleaning up.  Why the 8% royalty will never even come close to covering the cleanup, Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. For more than 200 years this saying has existed. Beware of Yankee traders, ye will rue the day. Herr Harper is bankrolled by the oil monopoly and has remove all impediments to the theft and transport of the tar by the monopoly and the despoiling of the Province and the rest of Canada.  And Lying Steve has facilitated the monopoly in doing a dirty number on the air, ground and water in Alberta / Saskatchewan and anywhere else the tar goes like BC / Lac-Megantic / Toronto / Montreal.  This is the threat we now face. Wherever a pipeline or rail line runs  the locals face the prospect of being fried like the dead at Lac – Megantic. And the media, like the Globe and Tar are being paid to hide this info from you and me. The Town of Megantic has paid a hell of a price for pure greed and the pursuit of power. From here on in any community along a pipeline or rail line risks the towering inferno like Lac – Megantic. The only question is who will be next?  It is interesting to me that in regards to this tragedy Queen Elizabeth expressed condolences about Megantic to the very man, Herr Harper who caused this  devastation and loss of life. At the end of this piece I will take you through this criminal act step by step. I’ll cover the past, the present and look to the future. I don’t have a crystal ball but if one has many / most / all of the facts a good educated guess about what the future holds is possible.   Georgie Bush Jr. and the Republican Congress removed ALL RESTRAINTS from Wall St. and the banks. The result is they destroyed America. Lyin Steve has removed all the restraints on the tar sands, again, what comes out of the tar sands IS NOT LEGALLY //   OIL   \\].  Its’legal name is Crude Bitumen [ the Black Death ]. But the petrol $ media is paid to call it  //  OIL  \\. Thus many are facing ruin and death but you won’t find these facts in Thomson’s Globe. The people of Lac – Megantic have been dealt the first deadly blow. Could it be that the negligence of a little Mickey Mouse railway will bring about the end of the great bitumen [ Black Death ] fraud / conspiracy in North America??? The curtain has been pulled back. But I have my doubts that Edward Burkhardt is really responsible. The 77 oil tankers [ these tankers were not Burkhardt's property ] were not Red Placarded as hazardous [ HAZMAT ] and it was an exceptional long, heavy train. I question the mechanical state of these tankers. Were the hand brakes even roadworthy? Would the engineer even know if the brakes were in ood condition?   it just maybe that even if all those old covered wagon brakes were on they couldn’t  hold such weight on a 1.5% grade. If I had inspected those brakes you would have the answer right now.  It would be that easy to determine. Only if I had all the figures. But Transport Canada,  is now run from the PMO and they will never release such information. Get used to it, M, M and A  is Harper’s scape goat, he and  his  lackeys in the press will stick with the Government proscribed scape goat.  And as long as the Harper / oil money keeps flowing the petro $ media will run with this story.  Andrew Coyne / Ezra Le Rant are already on the case. No doubt they too can smell the money and bonuses. In the end we should be able put Steve Harper and his oil monopoly employers in jail for this massacre. The final part of this story will also include the end of the petro $ media as we have known it. Aiding and abetting the crime of murder in return for cash, as the media has done and continues to do should also bring punishment.  I have one question for David Thomson and his Globe. When is enough blood money enough enough blood money??? When does the greedy feeling subside David? When the corpses are piled high? Or Would it be when we put you in jail???

 I have written before that Herr Harper is mentally ill. He is a Sociopath who suffers from UPC [ an Undeveloped Prefrontal Cortex ]. This relates to an undeveloped Societal Nodule, an area of the human brain [ on the left side between the eye and the ear ] which makes us what we are to – day, social animals. Beings who have a need to join together within a society and work for the betterment of all. Some even put effort into building a better society for tomorrow. One they will never themselves live to see. I believe this is an inner drive to see that their children have an easier time of things. This Societal Nodule has always been with us as Homo Sapiens and is the reason we have formed into larger groups over the centuries [ from 8000 BC on / the advent of agriculture ]. This joining together had many advantages, strength in numbers  and a realization that working as a unit we can produces better results than going solo. I believe UPC sufferers like Harper and Conrad Black have always been with us but over time their numbers would have been small [  in ancient times ].  I think UPC is inherited. Conrad has an errant son Johnathan who is completely irresponsible. I would suspect UPC. Like father like son.  Anyone who wouldn’t do their share back 10,000 years ago would be thrown out of the cave and banished to starve in the wilderness. If an individual stole his neighbours food his days would be numbered.  Only since the American Revolutionary War have we seen the proliferation of UPC sufferers, branded as Sociopaths in the 1970s. From the time of the US founding fathers there developed a special class of so called exceptional people. It was decided by Congressional leaders that when gifted MEN [ as in not women ] appeared on the scene their way should be smoothed. Having to appeal to voters for support and recognition in order  to climb the ladder of success was obviously a waste of a talented man’s time [ note MEN ]. While this may have made sense in 1800, it has caused considerable problems ever since. Just who would actually get to chose the exceptional persons?  The people already in the exceptional ranks?  Is it legit if an exceptional person is given a get-out-of-jail-free card based on the opinions of a few of his friends?  With this odd idea of special people existing were not the important Americans beginning to mess with their own  democracy? This exceptional person designation certainly did. In fact it has brought the USA to its’ knee [ 2008 / 09 ]. I posed this question in an earlier post. If an exceptional person was elevated by his fellows, those who recognized greatness, well okay. But when the said exceptional person died that should be the end of the line. Right?  But that is not how it has worked out. The sons of exceptional people became by virtue of their birth exceptional people too. This transfer of greatness was then bestowed upon young men who were not even close to being great. Some were village idiots.  Georgie Bush Jr. comes to mind. His grandfather Prescott [ Repub. ]  got rich laundering money for Hitler [ exceptional ? ]. While Americans were dying in Europe and in the Pacific  Presott Bush’s Union Banking Corporation was seized by the US Government [ FDR ] under the Trading with the Enemy Act [ 1942 ]. This exceptional people cadre made major incursions in the States from 1850 onward. There had been rich families before but by the middle of the century they began to form alliances. A clear sign of trouble to come. This gave them increased power outside Congress. Very Sociopathic.  The  exceptional people got smacked down by Teddy Roosevelt [ Pres. 1901 / 1909 ] who set out to curtail the big corporations like Standard Oil  [now EXXON ] and the robber barons.  During the Great War Woodrow Wilson [ Pres. 1913 / 1921 ], a Democrat, held the EX people at bay by passing numerous laws to restrict corporate / rich power. Taft and Roosevelt had split the Republican Party in the 1912 election. As a result the exceptional people and the big corporations joined forces. And they moved to the right. It was the beginnings of the present Republican Party whose moto was and is, ” If you ain’t cheating you ain’t trying “. From the very start the Repubs were an anti democratic organization.  From day one it was populated by thousands of Sociopaths, corporate sharks and some of the selfish rich. That is why the Republicans sided with Hitler.  While having been born into a democratic society these Sociopaths were not of that society and sided with the Fascists. They saw the opportunity to feed off the masses and prosper by any means possible. They indeed saw themselves as an exceptional lot.  The other governing factor on the right was the rise of the Nietsche myth. Friedrich Nietzsche was a construct of his sister Elisabeth Nietzsche – Forster, an anti semitic and a German nationalist. Liz turned her mad brother into her meal ticket. Fred’s writings were altered, scraps of scribblings were turned into books, letters to others were forged, letters were altered or destroyed.  Liz went so far as to coach Fred’s old friends from University as to how to remember her brother. The outcome was a body of work which was made to appealed to the German right, much of it made up on purpose.  Hitler loved Nietzsche, the master race and all that important stuff. In 1907 H. L . Mencken [ 1880 / 1956 ] translated what he thought was the literary output of Friedrich but got Elisabeth’s pro German printed  propaganda instead. When Mencken began work on what he thought was Nietzsche’s output he was only 25 and wet behind the ears really. A cub reporter. The material he worked with was in fact the recreation of the writings of a lunatic who had not put pen to paper in 20 years. Mencken was a wimp who found Nietzsche’s ideas as presented by Liz very attractive. Friedrich, very early on had divided the people into Ubermen [ a few exceptional people running the show] and the Untermensch [ the mob ] who were supposed to do all the heavy lifting. Nietzsche obviously thought of himself as an exceptonal person. He had decided he was. As well he had no use for democracy. One reason, he had never lived in a democratic state. So he had no experience.  He liked authoritarian rule as long as he was in league with the few exceptional people barking the orders. You know, those who decided whether the individual Untermenschs go to the left or go to the right. The US has always been home to a large German minority.  Mencken  was of German descent and thought that the bulk of the American people were dolts. He said so many times. I find Mencken’s position strange as I do that of Preston Manning here in Canada.  H. L. lived in a democracy and prospered from it yet he lived for the day when the exceptional people would take over.  And the majority, the little people would move into their rightful place at the bottom. Mencken’s articles in papers / magazines and his books were dedicated to regime change. I don’t know if H. L. thought through the consequences of his ideas. Sociopaths have no insight.  If the exceptional people take over as they wish.  Isn’t that just another form of tyranny?   Mencken supported Germany in the Great War and was sympathetic to Hitler, as was Georgie Bush Jr.’s grandfather.  Mencken added a bit of his own stuff  to his so called Nietzsche translations. Let’s go back.  Nietzsche plagiarized earlier German philosophers.  His scribblings were often  recorded by his friend Heinrich Koselitz a wannabe philosopher. Friedrich called his friend Peter Gast to coverup the younger man’s involvement. At times Nietzsche could not even write so Heinrich took dictation.  5 years after Nietzsche was declared mad and put in the nut house, his sister Elisabeth showed up, fresh from South America. Liz bought the rights to her brother’s literary output from their mother. The problem was that Koselitz had possession of much of what was supposed to be Fred’s writings. Liz got some money from her late husband’s friends to set up a Nietzsche Museum. Koselitz was invited to help set up the museum so long as he brought along the files on Fred. Once Koselitz handed over the material he got pitched out on his keister by Liz. Herr Hartper does the same thing. So what Mencken ended up reading was Nietzsche’s interpretation of earlier academics.  As seen by Koselitz.  As reorganized by Elisabeth.  Then cherry picked by H. L.   Mencken.  He massaged  the mythic Nietzsche into something that was saleble to the American right wing movement . So began 100 years of crafting a bogus Netzsche by thousands of writers in the Republican Party to suit their Sociopathic bent. Exceptional Americans, the right, the rich and the Republicans over the years have very much liked what they read.  Especlally the part about the Uberman and the Untermensch.  H. L. had found his life’s work. There was however a shift in the exceptional persons approach. Someone else didn’t have to anoint you, You could / can just anointed yourself as exceptional like Harper, Black, Manning Flanagan, Poilievre and jenni Byrne.  All of a sudden, every wimp / Sociopath in the USA / Canada could / can self proclaim and join the club [ like the Civitas society, a private Fascist club ]. These misfits and wimps who had been left out of society had finally found a home. They could prove themselves and draw comfort by bullying the little people. After all we should know our place as lady Black would say.  Mencken introduced Ayn Rand [ 1905 / 1982 ] to the possibilities of trading on HER studies and knowledge of the Nietzsche myth, this in 1925.  Ayn was born Alisa Zinovyevna Rosenbaum in Russia and for a time supported the Communists. When the Bolsheviks began to mistreat the Jews, Ayn came to America where she found a place as a second rate writer. Mencken showed Ayn the way. She was soon turning out right wing Nietzsche copy for the  exceptional people. Those on the right didn’t / don’t care much about the quality of their reading as long as it was / is faithful to RIGHT WING THINK.  Canadian newspapers are overrun by right wing think. It is without doubt lousy journalism.  But as long as the copy relates to the Ubermen myth and that the rest of the population as a mongrel mob [ Untermensch ] to be fooled and misled consistently it is food and drink to the righties. The Republicans came to power in the 1920s and allowed the oil companies to once again form a monopoly although such a monopoly is illegal in the USA and Canada. Calvin Coolidge and his Republican Congress began removing Roosevelt / Wilson’s restrictions,  to unfetter business and release the exceptional people.  This move was meant to free them from our clutches and prosperity for all would follow [ their prosperity ]. To Coolidge, small Government was good Government.  As such the powerful people, the rich people and the exceptional people unencumbered would make America rich.  But they were the ones who got rich.  Coolidge, the Republicans and the exceptional people brought us  the world the stock market crash of 1929. FDR came to power in 1932 and began enacting various laws to rein in the exceptional people as Roosevelt / Wilson had done earlier. One major piece of FDR Legislation, among many was the Glass / Steagall Act  [ Sen. Glass, Dem. / Rep. Steagall, Dem. ]  which cut the ability of the Wall St. sharks to mess with taxpayer’s bank deposits and it imposed restrictions on the stock market. Did you know that there are 4 times as many Sociopaths on Wall St., in banks and in politics than in the US general population. FDR’s laws lasted for 50 years and nutured prosperity in the States. All during those years the Republican / exceptional people chafed. And the US middle class grew. Vast amounts of money were spent by the Repubs. to undermine FDR and his efforts to pull the Country out of the slump caused by Coolidge and his Congress.  During the late 1930s the Repubs. took Nazi money to keep America out of the coming war. Hitler promised the Republicans control and his support once all of Europe was under his thumbs. However Adolf was working on an A Bomb and adapting it to the V2. Of interest is the fact that the Nazis were developing a giant submarine to deliver V2s to the US seaboard once Europe was his. The Republicans / Sociopaths have no insight. The Fuhrer promised King Edward the VIII the same kind of deal. He would become the puppet King of England.  With the attack on Pearl Harbour the exceptional people went into hiding immediatley but continued to try to derail FDR [ as the Repubs. are now doing to Obama ] [ The Repubs. say to - day, if we can't have America then no one shall ].  One of the characteristics of Sociopaths is that they never learn from their mistakes. They keep on doing the same stupid things over and over but expect a different result. FDR / Democratic measures were fully entrenched after WW II and the American middle class prospered. The exceptional people suffered  some loss of control and a reduction in how much of the financial pie they could steal. The right however never gave up because they knew they were right. Nietzsche was their patron.  The Exceptional people set up a base at the University of Chicago to promote Calvin Coolidge economics and the Nietzsche myth.  In the shadow of Chicago U the right began to brainwash Americans about the advantages of a free market, smaller Government, unrestricted stock activity, hobbled unions and lower business taxes [ even no taxes at all ].  The University of Chicago press became the centre of subversion in the USA. Their press, funded by the exceptional people was used to publish books, pamphlets and economic reports pushing the view of the right. Many of these publications were termed best sellers.  Bullshit. This material was distribute to all the libraries in the US free of charge.  Not satisfied with this level of propaganda coverage a group outside the University of Chicago but operating in one of their back rooms [ nicknamed the Chicago School ] decided to use a loophole in American law to set up right wing think tanks and call them educational organizations. These right wing fronts could then dishonestly claim charity status and give them access to tax dollars. This dodge is only allowed in the US and Canada.  So the American general public ended up funding the very group that was / is promoting the end of democracy. Canada then  followed suit about ten year later at the University of Calgary. From the copycat Calgary School [ not an official part of the University ] duplicate right wing think tank charities were set up. I am sure you will recognize these phony Institutions, Fraser, C. D. Howe, Preston Manning, Canada West,  Montreal, Macdonald – Laurier and others.  Calgary U is funded by the American oil monopoly and is the centre of subversion in Canada. The University played a part in the theft of the 2011 election in which Lyin Steve got a slim majority of ten seats which has now disappeared.  In the States the exceptional people began to invest in TV networks and newspaper.  By 1975 about 70% of the revenue stream going to the media was from advertising.   There was a coming together of various forces that set the USA on its’ downward slide. The rich right, Republicans, exceptional people joined with their $ media friends to begin to fashion the America we see to – day. The domination by the Ubermen [ possibly 10 million Sociopaths ] and the plight of the more than 300 million Untermenschs. Front man, Ronald Reagan, a grade B actor, came to office supported by the right wing media. The Republicans were ecstatic. Now they could wipe away all of the laws and legislation put in place by Roosevelt, Wilson, FDR and the Democrats. Like Harper is doing away with everything that smacks of the Liberal  brand here.   Much of the support for the Republicans came / comes from the American oil monopoly. The final protection against the onslaught of  the greed of the  exceptional people was the repeal of the Glass / Steagall Act in 1999. From that time onward US citizens were no longer financially safe. It took Coolidge / Republicans 8 years to orchestrate the Great Depression [ 1929 ]. It took Georgie Bush Jr. / Republicans 8 years to do a repeat performance and bring America’s economy to its’ knees once again. It is interesting that the right wing measures that Coolidge introduced in the 1920s and didn’t work were tried yet again by Bush, 2000 to 2008. And do you know what? These same measures were tried by Mike Harris in Ontario and they were a disaster. And do you know what? Tim Hudak is selling the very same snake oil to- day. Do you know what? The Province in now in the 3rd world category.  With Hudak we will make it to tier FOUR.  Right now we are on a Sociopathic merry go round. The exceptional people, in pursuit  of the Nietzsche myth have destroyed the economy of the USA and are now doing a number on Canada. In terms of our young people always moving upward. They are now stalled or even going backward. They can’t  look forward to an easier time in the future, thanks to the American oil monopoly, the Republicans and the Harper Fascists. Most of Herr Harper’s followers do not have children. Of huge danger to any society are people like Harper and his gang of misfits.  Most of them are sociopaths who have never had real jobs in their lives. Many are from the ranks of wimps in the Harper Youth.  Steve and his Fascist Party live off the fat of the land.  Where do you think Duffy and Wallin learned their craft.  Being exceptional people, they think It is due them. After all they are self appointed and part of the cult of Nietzsche. They are entitled to their entitlements.   Lyin Steve is joined in this hallowed circle above the laws of the land by Conrad Black, Pierre Poilievre, Gwyn Morgan and Neil Reynolds among others. All being wimps, they need some kind of opponent who doesn’t fight back, this to prove their manhood. And all chose to battle our democracy and its’ laws. Democracy means Government. And Government means the citizens. That mob of little folk, the majority that  is most feared by the exceptional people. As long as we have the vote they can’t control us. So they will cheat us out of our Country like Bush Jr. did Stateside.  Black stole other people’s money because he viewed them as patsies, as are all of the little people to the Conman and Barb. Poilievre has chosen Canada as his opponent. Pierre never had a real job in his life, much like Steve.  Backed by unlimited US oil monopoly money Harper and Poilievre are tearing off chunks of our democracy without meaningful opposition. If you read Gwyn Morgan’s bio on the net it would seem this man has made himself rich by taking advantage of every loophole in the law and sometimes outside it. Gwyn and his wife live in a mansion in BC thanks to taking everything Canada has to give and giving nothing back. Except a gift of a mill to the Fraser Institute. An organization that stands on guard for the Republicans. Neil Reynolds was a newspaper man who I could never fathom. I could not get a fix on where he was coming from. Neil was what I call it a very confused thinker. But his obituary in the Globe, May 22/13 helped me solve the riddle. The headline read, ” Editor fought for free speech and liberty “. In Canada ? Huh? I thought we had those things? Neil is yet another Nietzsche adherent. The Government by and of the people is the enemy of the thin ranks of exceptional people as seen by Reynolds.  In the USA it is estimated that 4% of the males and 1% of females are sociopaths. 1% of males are psychopaths. I have long held that Harper is a Sociopath but he has now crossed into Psychopathic territory by his prearranging of the killing of approx. 50 innocent victims in Megantic on behalf of his oilie employers.  It is clear that Lyin Steve is setting us up more deaths. In Britain the prison authorities imaged [ MRI ] every inmate. They found that 85% of those in jail were Sociopaths. There are 16 behaviours that identify Sociopaths. Medical investigation of the criminal mind began in 1942.  [] 1 [] Superficial charm and intelligence. [] 2 []   Absence of delusional thoughts and nervousness [ as in a cold killer with a sneaky smile ]. [] 3 []  Manipulative. [] 4 []   Unreliable.  [] 5 []   Untruthfulness and insincerity. Continual lying.   [] 6 []   Lack of remorse or shame. No empathy.  [] 7 []   Anti social behaviour.  [] 8 [] Poor judgement and a failure to learn from past experiences [ also a factor in Autism ]. [] 9 []   Never admitting to a mistake. [] 10 [] Egocentric, not capable of love. [] 11 []   Lack of insight. [] 12 []   Unresponsive to interpersonal relationships [ cold ]. [] 13 []   Univited behaviour. [] 14 []   Suicidal thoughts that are not carried out. [] 15 []   Little or no sex life. [] 16 []   No life plan. From this list we can see some of Harper’s traits. He is superficial but very intelligent. He lies continually. He says one thing and does the exact opposite just like Hitler did. He is not sincere.  He lacks remorse for his deeds.  He feels no shame after dumping his friends Mike Duffy, Pamela Wallin and Nigel Wright. They served Himself, but like so many others they’ve been tossed aside, with their names sullied. In 1934 Hitler shot all of those who had helped him gain power. They were no longer of any use to him.  Now here is the biggie, NO INSIGHT. Sociopaths like Harper are unable to project their actions onto future events and exercise caution. Letting the pipelines / railways  carry liquified Crude Bitumen containing 1/3rd benzine without meeting strict regulations is guaranteeing innocent people will die.  By facilitating the pipeline companies, deregulating CN / CPR, gutting the environmentl laws where did Harper think he was taking the Country? By laying off Transport Canada Inspectors and allowing the pipelines and railways to police themselves it meant that the hedge fund owners on Wall St. would  always self deal. Herr Harper took us directly to Lac-Megantic. The Streeters ruined the USA with their self dealing. Now it is our turn.  In such  situations plain Canadians and Americans always lose [ even their lives ] because to-day’s Governments refuse to protect us. The reason? They have all been paid off with oil money.  Since Harper tells lies every day.  Can we expect Joe Oiliver, Gary Doer, the his trained seal MPs or the pipelines [ Russ Girling ] and railways [ Hunter Harrison ] to tell the truth? It is clear that a lot of boardrooms are run by Sociopaths.  Steve has appointed his flunkies to Transport Canada,  the Transportation Safety Board / National Energy Board specifically to lessen the load on the oil business. But this shifted the risks onto the average citizen. As Lyin Steve and Nietzsche would say, ”  THE MOB “.  By removing the environmental regulation and restrains on the American oil monopoly and the US pipelines / railways [ owned by Wall St. hedge funds ] it is clear what the outcome would be.  Dangerous tar / Zippo lighter fluid spills. There have been at least 1000 spills in the last ten years. Most were Alberta tar. this fact was not published by the press. Really nice, the $ media gets paid for NOT DOING SOMETHING. But missing in all of these spills has been one small thing. A single stray spark.  just a little spark can ignite the poisonous naptha / benzine used to thin the tar. But the clock ran out in Lac-Megantic. A single spark did killed 50 people. It would have been better in my view if the 6 tank cars on the Bow River bridge in Calgary containing pure lighter fluid [ benzine ] had blown up. The oil monopoly exectives there would have been fried instead of the innocent people in Lac-Megantic. If Enbridge gets its’ wish and begins pumping Alberta tar mixed with lighter fluid [ benzine ] through No 9, across Southern Ontario and through Toronto what would be the death toll if that pipeline ruptured and caught fire?  A broken pipe, a spark or even static electricity [ when you walk across a carpet and touch a light switch ] can cause what you saw in Lac-Megantic. Only in Toronto it would be 100 times worse. At Lac-Megantic the fire only ceased when all the tar was burned. If pipe No 9 bursted along Finch Ave. between Dufferin St. and Bathurst St. the tar / lighter fluid would burn for days as many thousands of gallons would continue to be pumped out long after the rupture. Enbridge has no way of knowing there is an Alberta tar spill. The sensors located in oil pipes don’t work with tar / lighter fluid. The quartz sand in the tar tears the sensor diaphrams to pieces. Enbridge would not be informed for hours of a spill in TO. People who have been burned to a cinder or died of asphyxiation don’t make emergency phone calls.  To make matter worse the oil monopoly toxic garbage / materials have and are been strewn across our countryside [ air / ground / water ]. The oilies have no intention of cleaning the mess up or ever paying for its’ cleanup.  Herr Harper has given the monopoly, his employers a free pass. Dispoil the landscape at your convenience says Lyin Steve.  Quite some deal. Fry as many little people as you wish. Tens of millions flow under the table to Harper and his MPs to finance their Facist cheat machine.  David Thomson, CTV and the rest of the media play along in return for cash. All the while the American oil monopoly gets to take  hundreds of billions of petroleum resources out of Canada. And what do we get in this regard? A royal screwing, that’s what. Everybody along every pipeline or railroad is at risk of being driven from their homes, gassed or incinerated. Some of you nincompoops put Lyin Steve and his Facists in office. Thanks. You should be ashamed of yourselves. In a sense the Lac -Megantic conflagration is partly your fault. Harper supporters put the right wing ideology ahead of their fellow Canadians to go along with Steve’s cheating. But one thing is constant. Republicans  / Harper’s Fascists never take any responsibility for their mistakes and the petro $ media fulfills their every wish by covering up.  In this confligration, we must make the monopoly pay up and pay big. Or WE will pay even more, forever.  If you have spine Canada will regain its’ place in the world?  If you keep on acting like jellyfish as too many of you are. Then the clanging of the concentration gate behind you and your children will be your reward. Don’t your kids and grandkids deserve better???

****************************************************************************************************

Let’s cut to the chase. The Lac – Megantic disaster was a TWO PARTER although the petro $ media won’t tell you that. The Globe and Tar and others are being paid to cover up the facts. Total load, more than 4 million gals. petroleum product. The oilies and their employee Steveie Harper are desperate to stop you from finding out that 1,400,000 gallons of  what amounts to Hi Octane Gasoline [ benzine ] fuel blew up, The remaining  3,000,000 gallons of tar burned or leaked into the lake / river, The train didn’t carry Red Hazardous Cargo Placards because the obsolete tank cars were not licenced to carry benzine / naptha [ HAZMAT ] [ hazardous materials ].  [] 1 [] FIRST concern, there was the runaway train which Harper is concentrating on. He has found his scape goat. The young of lac-Megantic be damned. If that train had been hauling orange juice there would not have been any deaths.  [] 2 [] SECOND, the cargo of liquified Crude Bitumen [ mixed with 33% Zippo lighter fluid ]. This Black Death is being pumped and railed all over Canada.  Harper and the monopoly have plans for increasing the volume of alberta tar. This is the part that is being hidden from your view. The train parked uphill from Lac -Megantic could have been too heavy for the antiquated handbrake syste. It was to be left overnight unattended. I don’t think the engineer responsible knew what was on board and that the cars weighed too much to be left on a hill?  M,M and A is a railway Company running along the edge of bankruptcy, it was cutting every corner it could. The tankers were obsolete and should not have been carrying benzine. Transport Canada was oblivious to the transportation of hazardous materials as per Harper’s wishes. It was an accident looking for a place to happen. The cargo //   OIL   \\ was one eagerly seized upon by M, M and A as a way to replace their diminishing wood business in Quebec. It is my sense that Ed Burkhardt, CEO, M, M and A  wasn’t aware of how hazardous his cargo was and that it was being illegally hauled in old tank cars. CP Rail just looked the other way and hauled this load of death clear across the Country. Every community CP Rail traverses could have been a Megantic. Each tank car carried a total of 60,000 gallons of tar slurry. 20,000 of that was naptha / benzine which is the equilavent of Hi Octane Gasoline. It was used in the B-29s over Japan.  40,000 gallons of tar / sand / trace chemicals made up the rest of the load in each tanker . It should have been  identified as Hazardous material by use of a Red Placard on each car for rail or a Red pipeline ticket. Waybills are supposed to accompany each shipment of petroleum products and describe the contents in detail. Those involved fudged the Waybills. This paperwork allows local authorities to respond to spills, derailments etc in a safe and proper manner. By not describing the contents , first reponders, firemen and the public are put at great risk. There is no point finding out a year later that the soil in the centre of Lac – Megantic is soaked to the 3 ft level with benzine ensuring another 50 people will die slow deaths. That is what Herr Harper is allowing by impeding the investigation.  As far as I can tell the pipelines / railways are ignoring the laws and hiding the makeup of these lethal cargos all over the Country and down into the States. The authorities / investigators are turning a blind eye and withholding information from the public. Those who were on site in an official capacity already know the cargo was Alberta tar mixed with benzine [ look benzine up on the net ], it is one of the deadliest chemical compounds going. It can burn you fast or kill you slow.  How much did it cost the US Oil monopoly to buy the investigators? It is called double dipping, working for the people supposedly? But all the while taking money from the US oil monopoly to ignore their duties.  It looks to me like Burkhardt was duped and is now the target of the petro $ media as per Harper’s instructions. M, M and A, in trying to escape the scapegoat label which will be used by the monopoly paid Globe and Tar etc to keep attention away from the real problem.  Burkhardt will best be served  by going bankrupt. That will suit the suits. In fact Harper and his employer the oil monopoly could be paying Burkhardt to close M, M and A’s doors.  Then no one will be resposible to pay for the cleanup.  Then the  petro $ media will spend weeks punching at a phantom. 50 people innocent people killed and nobody to blame. Neat don’t you think? Liquified Crude Bitument goes by the names tar slurry or  diluted bitument [DilBit ]. It is a mixture of raw tar, quartz sand, trace chemicals and about 33% lighter fluid [ the naptha / benzine family ]. The lighter fluid part is the dangerous part of the load and it can be in liquid form or gas off when heated. In a Coleman camp stove naptha is poured into a little tank and the pressure is pumped up. When the valve is opened you put a match to the burner and it goes whoosh just like Megantic. The naptha passes through a manifold on its’ way to the burner and is turned into a gas.  A hundred thousand Coleman stoves constituted the part of the load that incinerated 50 approx. people in Lac. Megantic. Now the soil in the centre of Lac -Megantic is soaked with benzine.  A sure sign of DilBit.  LIGHT OIL CONTAINS NO BENZINE. OIL as we know it is benign before refining. However toxic tar mixed with lighter fluid can be catastrophic. So that is why YOU are being snowed by the papers each and every day. Oil it ain’t but that is what the oilies pay them to say.    Benzine fumes are very  dangerous. And that will probably be a barrier to replacing any of the buildings in Town  because of the noxious fumes in the ground. All the soil will have to be removed to whatever depth the benzine goes.  [] / [] The Naptha / Benzine family is the lightest, most volitile petroleum liquid going. This liquid is added to Hi Octane Gasoline to increase it’s power. Naptha is used in Zippo lighters and Coleman camp stoves as stated. It can be carcinogenic. It can cause failure of the central nevous system. The Material Safety Data Sheet gives health guideline for what is considered a very hazardous material. Naptha can explode violently if it comes in contact with a spark, flame or overheated surface. Dangers include skin irritation. Ingestion can cause chemical pneumonia, severe lung damage, respiritory failure and death. Fire fighters must use full SCBA breathing apparatus to avoid health risks. In Burnaby, Kalamazoo, Mayflower and Lac-Megantic first responders were not told what they are dealng with. It was always  OIL, OIL , OIL said Pat Daniel [ of Enbridge ] and Rex Tillerson [ of EXXON ]. Joe Oiliver says it is oil. Garry Doer says it is oil, The Globe and Tar, Post and Star call it oil.  How many of these young men and women who fought the Megantic inferno will die early deaths because of  the failure of Gordon Campbell [ Burnaby ], Herr Harper [ Megantic ] and the Governors of Michigan [ Kalamazoo ] / Arkansas [ Mayflower ] to call it DilBit tar instead of OIL.  All fire residues from Naptha / Benzine must be disposed of in accordance with the regulations and must not be released into the environment. Is this being done by the Megantic cleanup crews or do they still believe it was OIL that spilled. The penetration of Naptha / Benzine into the subsoil or water should be prevented at all costs according to the laws. The benzine can migrate in all directions and permanently damage the soil well beyond the spill site. Naptha / Benzine vapours must be kept below occupational exposure and flamibility limits. All clothing used in the containment of Naptha / Benzine events must be disposed of where there is no possible ignition source. Vapours  can explode when mixed with air. Soiled clothing must not be put in a washer or dryer. Sparks could set off an explosion. The huge fireballs at Lac – Megantic were NOT CAUSED BY OIL. Oil doesn’t burn like that. As the tank cars telescoped there would have been  tearing / grinding metal which would have created plenty of sparks. The liquid Naptha /Benzine would have been ignited first and it would burn. The vapours generated would actually explode. Heat would build up from the burning tar around the tankers that had not burst. The pressure build up inside the thin skinned tank car would eventually rupture them and they would explode too and shoot Naptha / Benzine high into the sky. One by one the tanker would blow up. Eventually when the Naptha / Benzine was all consumed the tar would keep the fires going.  Harper, [ the Sociopath ] would never have give a thought ahead of time that such a tragedy could occur. Steve crafted this confligration link by chain link. His only thought was the oil monopoly’s bottom line. But isn’t that what Lyin Steve is paid for?  Stevee  remove all the impediments to the transport of killer liquified Crude Bitument by pipeline or rail strictly to increase the profits of his employer, the American oil monopoly. On April 29 / 13, in my post, I wrote about just such a confligration happening in Toronto. This in regard to the Enbridge application about Pipe  # 9  to the NEB.  This toothless tribunal is stacked with Harper cronies. The Company wants to reverse the flow on Pipeline No. 9 to carry the Black Death right across Ontario, going through the middle of Toronto.  I can just imagine the death toll and destruction here if the toxic tar / lighter fluid blew?  If No # 9 let go the oilies would be sure to kill some little kids and their grandparents this time. The Pat Daniel Company might even score some babies while they’re at it as kids and older folks would be present. Not like in Lac-Megantic where just partiers fried. Enbridge operatives are now travelling across Southern Ontario paying $ 25,000 bribes to mayors / reeves / community organizations to buy their support. Mind you after the oilies bribing Congress, Parliament and Queen’s Park why should municipal politicians and community leaders be left out of the beanfeast?  If Naptha / Benzine is carried by train the person in charge must complete the documents listing the cargo and the tank car must be placarded in Red. That placcard must be clearly visible for inspection by Transport Canada [ who on Harper's orders check nothing but their cell phones ] under the Dangerous Goods Act. In terms of //   OIL   \\ pipelines themselves, they should not be used for Naptha / Benzine as it is a totally different product. It is much more volitile and poisonous than oil.  And the tar is laced with quartz sand which erodes the inside of the steel pipes, making them thinner. Therefore the pipelines and railways should not be able to mix Naptha / Benzine with tar and transport it unless all of the Government Regulations are met, as regards pipe [ plastc pipes that can't be eroded by the sand and and don't overheat ]. And double hulled rail cars. 40 year old, rusty pipelines and obsolete tank cars should be off limits to liquified Crude Bitument. The only thing those cars are good for is carrying orange juice. As well these restrictions go for the pumping / transporting of 100% Naptha / Benzine like in the case of the 6 derailed tankers on the Bow River bridge in Calgary.  Just 6 rail cars held 500,000 gallons of Naptha / Benzine.  If I had had my wish, I would have prefered to see that train blow up in a fireball and take out  downtown Calgary. Frying all those bastards in the oil office towers who bear a huge responsiblity for Lac – Megantic. Now that would be sweet justice. Everyone in the oil business knows that they are pumping / shipping tar slurry //   NOT OIL   \\. In fact when trains carrying liquified Crude Bitumen  arrive at their destination the tank cars must be heated to get the tar out.  Oh swell. Just imagine the entire Irving Atlantic refinery blowing up? Under the circumstances  complying with Transport Can. regulations as they are now written would make  it extremely expensive if not impossible for the US oil monopoly to ship raw tar.  But of  course our very own Stevie has done away with all the rules on behalf of the monopoly. Added to the fact that liquified Crude Bitument is presently being pumped / shipped through / in antiquated pipes and obsolete tank cars. This is a clear threat to the investors in tar sands companies. Are they out of their minds? No, not the smart ones,they have dumped oil stocks.  The values of tar sands companies are depressed, it is little wonder.  Why would anyone open themselves to such liability?  The Black Death, as we now know it can strike anywhere, any time. That is why oil stocks in the west are languishing. Initially, Ed Burkhart says that the M, M and A insurance would cover the Company’s damages. Burkhardt was dreaming in technicolour. The total cost is going to be in the billions and insurance companies don’t pay off when there is neglect and a willful disregard for the laws. Lying on the Waybills and not afixing Red Hazardous Goods Placards to tank cars is a crime and will mean CP will share some of the responsibility. CP, which had been cutting costs and laying off staff is owned by Wall St. hedge funds. A slap up the side of the head for CP would be mighty satisfying to me. Since the tar was not identified as a hazardous material I think the insurance companies involved will stop answering the phone. I believe the Mickey Mouse and Atlantic outfit will declare bankruptcy and escape liability.  If our Government had been truly acting on behalf of Canadians this transportation of Naptha / Benzine mixed with tar would never have taken place.  The oil monopoly is transporting  this  hazardous / lethal material behind the backs of Canadians with the full participation of the petro $ media. All the insiders in Ottawa  know the game  that is being played here.  Joe Oiliver was fully aware of the dangers before the Lac – Megantic blow up and the extent of the law breaking by those involved.  Both Joe and Steve are now in hiding.  Tom Mulcair was right on the money. What happened was that Herr Harper just removed all the regulations and HE HIMSELF let’r rip. Or let her blow might be a better way of putting it. And one million, four hundred and sixty thousand gallons of  Naptha / Benzine blew up in the little Town of Lac – Megantic.  The US oil monopoly, the pipelines, the railways are hard at work endangering hundreds of thousands of Canadians by claiming that they are just  transporting //   OIL   \\. This  //   OIL   \\ message is carried to the public by the petro $ media in return for millions in bribes in the form of advertising. It is a message that AGAIN is being repeated over and over hundreds of times. Everyone involved should be in jail. This is modern brain washing is in the Goebbel’s mode.  This //   OIL THINGY   \\ is on display particularly in the National Post and the Globe and Tar. In the last couple of days a new lie has emerged. As if to make sure Lac – Megantic is never connected to Fort McMurray tar in the minds of the citizenry the press is now saying that the contents that exploded in the Town was light oil from the Bakken field in North Dakota. IT IS AN OUT AND OUT LIE. This Bakken oil field nonsense is being repeated incessently  by those 20 year old unpaid intern writers who the media is abusing. One junior / starving scribe even mentioned Bakken twice. I am sure Paul Godfrey gave her an extra muffin. The only problem with that story is US  law prohibits the export of real OIL beyond its’ borders. But this shows the arrogance of the American oil monopoly, it is actually  admitting via the media that it is breaking American laws. In this case it is more important to hide the fact that what blew in Megantic was Alberta tar. This shows me that the  monopoly doesn’t have to fear anything because Republicans in Congress and the Facists in our House of Commons have been bought off by the oilies. Each one of  Herr Harper’s MPs has a fat oil money bank account which will be used to steal the next election.  The monopoly has no respect for the intelligence of Canadians. The monopoly tells endless lies through CAPP and the $ media, the veracity of which is easily checked on the net. The oil monopoly has taken a page from the Republicans play book. Basically that the bulk of you are just like your American cousins, merely part of the mongrel mob.  Although the voters are the majority.  H. L Menken, the darling of the right said something like, ” All governments of the people are conspiracies against the superior mind. Who decides if someone is superior like Pierre ” Skippy ” Poilievre. Being that Skippy is a certifiable wimp, Pierre, a product of Calgary U is allow to elevate himself on his very own say so according to the creators of the Nitzsche Myth Cult. Whether we are or are not an unruly mob that needs taming, that is not for the elites to decide., If the Black Death continues to be transported around the countryside by the American oil monopoly, that endangered mob could get very nasty. I suggest we get very nasty quickly. There will be many more people fried like at Lac – Megantic  if the transport of tar is not stopped. But if you are more savvy than Harper and the oil monopoly gives you credit for then the deaths from the black death will end here and now?  What will it be?  Your very important call? Lives are depending on you.

****************************************************************************************************

Let’s go back in time to see just how we ended up with 50 people dead in Lac -Megantic.  I am a Progressive Conservative with emphasis on Progressive. Both my Federal and Ontario Parties have been taken over by the American oil monopoly funded Fascists. Let’s return to 2000, during the second mandate of Mike Harris, he threatened  to sell Ontario Hydro to Bay St.,  PC insiders and ENRON. I was and had been a minor PC Party functionary in Pickering [ starting in 1960 under Leslie Frost ]. Mike said sell O H, I suggested,  fix it. After discussions Mike ignored me and listened rather to the PC Party, [ currently run by Harper ] machine which  has Tim Hudk as its’ puppet leader. The sale initiative proceeded. As I walked away from Harris and the PCs my parting shot to Mike was, ” sell Ontario Hydro and you will lose the next election, fix it and you will win a third term “.  As you know the PCs were turfed by McGuinty and have never regained power since that time.  I also warned King Dalt, early in his first mandate  that the high cost of nuclear KWs was the elephant in the room. Although I am a PC I offered to help the Liberals in this regard, no dice said Dalt. McGuinty was bent on using our electrical system to enrich his own  friends as Harris had done before him. I wrote to McGuint [ 2004 ], saying, that if the electricity problem was not  addressed, it would be his downfall too. Now McGuinty, the nukies best friend has paid the price. The Dalt is now in hiding, he’s as reviled as Mike Harris.  With Tim Hudak as leader, the PCs will be in the wilderness for a long time to come. The people of this Province had their fill of Harrisisms.   Thus my interest in Ontario Hydro was whetted back in 2000 and so I began doing research on same. I now know more about electrical generation / transmission in a general sense than anyone in Canada. But those in control and in the $ media do not want to hear about me or my ideas or any other innovators for that matter.  Any proposals for a new KW system which puts the ratepayers needs above corporate interests and greed will never see the light of day in the present Ottawa / Queen’s Park environment nor in the right wing press. Innovation has actually been cancelled for the  foreseeable future and will remain so unless YOU the voters wake up from your slumbers. I have a strong feeling that even to-day there are Canadians who would march to the cattle cars without ever asking any questions. It is called docility or indifference. It is a part of human nature in some to believe anything  they are told. They wait and hope for the best. Some people can be led around by the rings in their noses.  Just look at the Germans from 1930 to 1945 and that practise is still the case to -day.  Harper seems to have found some similarly flawed people here in Canada who are quite happy to be led around by their noses. If you remember Mike Harris, he had accumulated a $ 3.5 hidden debt. A story that has been buried by the Harper press. Right wingers always like to tell us that they know what they are doing economywise. They don’t.  Calvin Coolidge and Ronald Reagan prove my point.  Mike Harris was no economist, nor is Lyin Steve. When mistakes occur the right wing just buries the wreckage or blames someone else.  Harris leased out # 407 to cover HIS hidden debt and was about to sell off Ontario Hydro for the same reason. But thank heavens, the Courts ruled against an Ont. Hydro sale. So smart old right winger Mike got all the bad publicity for the planned sale of Ont. Hydro which caused the demise of the PCs. But he never ended up getting any of money. And ONTARIANS just barely missed having their ENRON moment. Both Harris and ENRON were soon in the history books. The sale of Ont. Hydro shows Harris’ gross  incompetence and lack of political savvy. No insight.  Little wonder that the Province faltered under Mike’s thumb. I suggested to John Tory that he fix our electrical system and win the Premiership.  John, it turns out was rather slow on the uptake. Tory lost his Blackberry for a time. He ignored the electrical elephant in the room and lost. I was going to advise Tim Hudak to fix the electrical system and become Preem. But concluded Tim was even slower than Mike or John. I decided not to waste my time.  Sociopaths Republicans / Can. Fascists have no insight and the KW situation is a good example. Mike’s # 407 lease was flawed and has cost Ontarians billions. # 407 is now a highway for the rich, who can deduct the cost of its’ use as a business expense. Thus the money comes directly out of the pockets of Babs Black’s little people. Heads the rich win, tails, the little people lose. Years ago it was revealed that the # 407 agreement had more holes in it than swiss cheese. I am not surprised, Mike needed the money, like immediately. As a businessman I tried to avoid making deals from a position of weakness. Harris did exactly that. He gave away the store and on top of that even agreed to have the Government play the mob role of collecting # 407 accounts. Drivers are muscled to pay by MPPs who act more like sheep.  # 407 drivers stand convicted and must pay without a hearing. The Magna Carta did away with this kind of stuff in 1215.  How many other governments abuse the rights of the citizens by stong arming them for money on behalf of a private corporation? Dictators do that. This # 407 thuggery has to stop.  McGuinty was in a position to cancel the # 407 deal and take back the highway on the basis of an agreement which is not in the best interest of Ontarians.  Devious Dalt, the crook who would be  Premier, refused to expropriate # 407  because his friends and the Liberal party machine were / are making too much money working with the bandits who operate # 407. Dalt just replaced Mike at the # 407 graft payout wicket. Eventually Ontarians are going to have to buck up their courage and take # 407 back.  Now # 401 across the top of Toronto is poisoning the City with carbon monoxide when packed with cars / transport trucks.  David McKeown, Medical Officer of Health refuses to act on carbon monoxide question. My research says the level of CO in the Toronto core goes beyond the safe limit.  But the City Council, being true to Jane Jacobs, cares little about Torontonians suffering ill health or even death from the Gridlock they have engineered.  We need to have carbon monoxide testing done all across # 401 and at key locations in the City.  Dave however is more interested in grand standing than protecting the health of Torontonians. But in the end # 407 will have to come back into public ownership.

*****************************************************************************************************

Once I dumped Mike Harris and the what has become the Fascist PC party in Ontario I took up a study of this Province’s electrical system. I always had a soft  spot for Ontario Hydro and its’ harnessing of our vast water resources. Water was cheap, clean, unlimited and this resource belong to the people.  Water made us what we are and success reigned until 1975 when the nukies took over. Nuclear power has destroyed Ontario’s economy and relegated us to have-not-status. The nukies have been and are continuing to bleed us white and PC / Liberal MPPs close their eyes. We still have enough hydro electric capacity [ both installed and potential ] to power Ontario without any nuclear, coal or gas plants at all. In fact we have more water power than Manitoba and Quebec put together. But you wouldn’t know it. The story of this Province’s water resources has been tucked away on the shelf by the nukie insiders, well out of our view.  The $ media was / is paid to keep silent on the existence of this clean / cheap KW resourse. Much thanks to the Toronto Star, PCs and Liberal insiders who get far too many benefits from the nukies to ever allow the use of OUR God given resourse, water, WHICH THE PEOPLE OWN. This huge hydro potential has been hidden from the citizens here for 40 years. This, because the papers, particularly the Toronto Star were /are paid big money to mislead us. And John Honderich is still taking nukie money and trying to fool YOU. After the War, Ottawa wanted to find peaceful uses for uranium. We had mines at Bancroft and Elliot Lake and nuclear was cutting edge technology that offered jobs.  But the Feds and AEC needed a guinea pig to work out all the bugs, pay some of the bills and serve as a show case for the new nuclear technology. Ontario was chosen to serve the nukies’ interests. Quebec refused [ a very wise move ].  Premier Frost was taken in by Ottawa and AEC with promises that were impossible to keep. Leslie Frost was lied to and the nukie lies have never stopped coming over 40 years. In the end Ontarians were / are left holding the bag with electricity rates 3 times that of surrounding jurisdictions. Business, manufacturing , mining and forestry jobs have gone elsewhere . Queen’s Park and the nukies will not let YOU escape bondage until they have taken your very last sou. The actual end cost of KWs to Ont. ratepayers was never of interest to the nukies. They were into doing experiments all along to prove their nuclear theories. Ontarians were just around to sign the cheques and keep their mouths shut. No two CANDU plants are alike. Each is a one off.  Each new plant, is yet another expensive experiment. There has never been a truly successful CANDU system built. With each new nuke that pooped out the cry was wait till next time. And by the by, for the next generation model the nukies say, we are going to need some more money. And Queen’s Park has always given it to them, no questions asked. The nukies have never found a way to generate electricity too cheap to meter as they promised. However  they have found a way to generate nuclear electricity too expensive to buy.  But still Queen’s Park holds the citizens here in servitude with the Toronto Star’s help. Many of you voted for the now disappeared / disgraced  McGuinty. Imagine people voting for self poverty, bad times and no future for their children. And yet that Liberal Party machine was still in full swing during these current By-Elections. When I was doing early research on electricty I didn’t have a computer, no net. I relied on the Whitby Library and the Inter-Library Loan system. I even got books from the Library in Parliament. Then I began to puzzle over the nuclear coverage in  the Toronto Star? It didn’t sound right. The Paper’s nukie copy had a phony ring to it. By  the time my KW investigations began I had had a 50 years history with my beloved Star. First as a carrier [ 1947 / 1952 ] with a route of 150 Papers. Then as a customer. The Star was the only paper I read for all those years. As I got up to speed on Ontario’s electrical system I became aware that the nuclear content in the Star was not quite Kosher. I began writing to reporters and eventually to the editor at the Star with the correct information. I got nowhere. The nukie misinformation continued and continued and continues to this day. What you read about nuclear in the Star TO-DAY IS ALL LIES. Eventually I was writing to Rob Prichard, CEO of the Star. You are familiar with Prichard who is a three time loser. He and his Bay St. pals halved the Professor’s pension fund at the U of T. Rob was asked to leave the University. He took over the Star and proceeded to load the Paper with more than $ 500 million in debt. No doubt Rob and his friends benefited.  Because of this debt the Star’s days are numbered. Honderich is heading for oblivion which gives me much joy. The Paper’s Board of Directors gave Rob $ 9 million to go away but by then it was too late. Prichard he had driven a stake into the Paper’s heart.  John Honderich’s poor Star is on life support. Then McGuinty installed Rob Prichard at Metrolinx to facilitate the shoveling of taxpayer’s dollars into the pockets of devious Dalt’s friends and the Liberal Party machine. Rob is still hard at work passing out your money to Liberal insiders. His main talent seems to be giving away other people’s money and keeping some for himself. That is why Torontonians WILL NEVER SEE THE END OF GRIDLOCK AND NEVER SEE A WORKING PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSYEM UNTIL PRICHARD IS THROWN UNDER A SUBWAY CAR. Rob is planning a Union Station / Pearson rail link for the rich, to be paid for by Babs Black’s  little people. Prichard’s Eglinton subway is an underground track from noplace to nowhere.  However it will allow developers to buy up cheap Eglinton Ave. frontage from end to end upon which to build condos. The developers are in on Prichard’s deal but the little people are not. The rich will have their own private subway all the way downtown. Now there are plans for a subway in Scarborough, again for the affluent. Prichard is making us look like suckers. And if we fall for Rob’s pitch we will prove him right. In terms of the Scarb. subway, the working people in Malvern have been forgotten once again. My letter writing to the Star about the nukie lies yielded ziltch result even though I often sent copies of technical data to prove what the Paper was printing was false, pure nukie propaganda. Prichard actually called me on the phone about my anti nuclear letters but we agreed to disagree. The Star never missed a chance to accept a cheque for writing stuff right out of the nuclear handbook. It took me a very long time to come to grips with this unsettling situation. About a very old friend who continually lied /  lies and who took / takes money under the table. And here I thought the Atkinson Principles really meant something. You know those very Principles which John Honderich doesn’t honour and yet is always spouting off about. SO WHAT IS MY TAKE AWAY   ?  If the vaunted Star can take cash from advertisers to lie and make up the news then every newspaper in North America is capable of taking money to tell lies. I arrived at this conclusion some years ago and the fact that the  media puts money ahead of the truth. Over the years this has forewarned me.  In EVERY CASE where the public is being screwed you will find the local $ media deeply involved in facilitating the screwing and being paid to lie to YOU.  Now right before your eyes there is a massive  coverup in regards to the Alberta tar / lighter mix that killed 50 people in Lac-Megantic. And the destruction of the Town which will probably never rise again if things go as the American oil monopoly / Sicko Harper wish. The oil monopoly causes   towns / rural areas to disappear into which they have spill Alberta tar. Now the lying has caused 50 deaths. This Megantic affair speaks loudly as to just how far the petro $ media is prepared to go in printing / broadcasting US oil monopoly talking points and propaganda. The job of closing down the media coverage of the Megantic tragedy has already started. The soil in the area of the blast is deeply saturated with lighter fluid [ benzine ]. To rehabilitate the Town all of that soil will have to be removed. But you can’t build on the replacement fill. Each and every new structure will need pilings. This cost is beyond imagining for a small Town and there will be no money from M, M and A.  And there will be little money from the oil monopoly / CP Rail if the $ media takes its’ usual cue from Lyin Steve.   Benzine and tar have leaked into the sewer system and rendered it useless. The tar will have congealed and trapped pockets of benzine. Whose poisonous fumes will seep into every nearby building.  It could cause long term health problems and even more deaths. The poor people of Lac-Megantic are still in danger and Harper and his hirlings are not protecting the little people. And with the help of the $ media Canadians are being misled. Lyin Steve is forcing the folk of Megantic to wander into the valley of the shadow of death, friendless. No different from the Jews who forced to walk friendless to the cattle cars, Steve should be jailed. This latest load of the Black Death has come mysteriously all the way from Alberta not via the Bakken oil field. It is my guess that the dangerous materials paperwork required of CP Rail for each shipment, [ by Transport Canada ] has already been doctored to erase the true origins of this load of the Alberta tar. The insiders / investigators  already know the full story of Megantic [ bitumen / lighter fluid ] but they fear losing their Harper pay cheques if they spill the beans.  And the papers like David Thomson’s Globe are not about to ask any embarrassing questions. Thomson just keep saying  //   LIGHT OIL   \\.  Just publishing one honest article about the health risks to Canadians of shipping liquified Crude Bitument all over the Country would cost Thomson’s Globe and Tar hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost advertising from the US oil monopoly. Dave obviously looks at himself in the mirror each and every morning and says, ” do I tell Canadians the truth about the dangers of Alberta tar or do I take the oilie’s money “. At least up to this day Thomson has always opted to take the cash. Canadians are second on the list.

*****************************************************************************************************

A number of years ago I became interested in the plight of California. Much in the news at the time said the State was going broke. I was hard to believe?  How?  Why?  Those 34 million people do live in a Garden of Eden don’t they? It would seem that the trigger for their economic downturn was California’s get-tough-on- pollution initiatives. Georgie Bush the Jr., the US oil monopoly, GM, Ford and other car makers decided that the State lawmakers were going too far in wanting the kids to have a chance to be normal, breath and live long lives. The American oil monopoly took the initiative. George Jr. as usual was just a bit player. Cheney the oil man pulled the strings. The monopoly recruited all OF THEIR EMPLOYEES in a scheme to elect State Republicans. The far right has always had the support of about 20% of the voters [ USA ] [ 15% in Canada ].  These are Neanderthals and Sociopaths. Sometimes that number swells a little on certain issues. Thus the only way to gain power is for the Repubs. to rig elections and cheat. That’s where Lyin Steve learned his craft.  Each oilie employee was given the $ 1000 [ approx ] max political contribution. This scheme skirted the rules. When do Sociopaths ever play by the rules? Just look at the Conman Black. This is the same dodge Dean Del Mastro, Peter Penashue and others used to steal the 2011 election here. But they need not worry Arthur Hamilton and his Bay St. law firm have a blank cheque from the American oil monopoly. I thought lawyers sworn to uphold the laws of the land. But Art Hamilton does the exact opposite but what can we expect? Herr Harperhas been ignoring Canadian laws for 30 years. Lyin Steve is also funded by unlimited oil money, a subject that I have written about many times. But the Globe and Tar and other media won’t touch that story. Harper is doing away with political party subsidies. The reason? Lying Steve is already bankrolled by the US oil monopoly under the table just like the Republicans in California. Harper, with the open ended oilie financial arrangement desn’t need subsidies. When the Liberal Leadership race was on Herr Harper changed the rules for political contributions in the middle of the game just to hamstring the Lib.  candidates. Those rules also affected his Fascist Party but Steve doesn’t care. The oilies give him all the money he needs. Harper’s riding association has $ 330,000 on account. You can become a rich man kissing the oilie rears as long as you do what you are told. Seving the oil monopoly means a man loses his freedom. Sicko Harper is a modern day quisling.  At the same time as giving under the table money to the Republican candidates,  the monopoly bought up all of the California $ media so the opposition would not have look in on the Repubs. One area of concern for the older, white voters was paying taxes to cover the cost of schooling and health care etc for blacks and Hispanics. It was and is generally thought by the right that these people are lazy bastards who have to stop relying on the hard working elites. Such comments from the right show they care little for democratic rule like Harper and Manning The righties say that the minorities should be able to climb up the ladder all by themselves and not sponge off the whites. After all most of the whites wimps have elevated themselves to a position of money, power and privilege using daddy’s money. Georgie Bush Jr. had a grandfather [ who was in Congress ] who laundered money for the Nazis in 1942. Because of oilie efforts the Republicans were able to gain control of the Cali. State House with a big helping of oil money. Various laws were passed to allow the minority on the right wing to govern. Californians thought they had a democracy and that the will of the people would prevail in the end. Wrong, wrong, wrong again. Now it doesn’t matter what the majority in that State  wants? Revolution is their only option now. Otherwise they can go whistle Dixie. Herr Harper is creating the same situation in Canada with oil money, just like the Repubs. in California . Right now  in view of the Senate scandals Stevie, like the true psychopath he is has run away again. Harper’s  distiguished mentor, Tom Flanagan, is a draft dodger who also ran, this when his Country called. Tom taught Steve well. It has been said of our soldiers, especially those who stormed the beaches of Normandy or took the Italian Town of Ortona from the German Paras,  that it is in our DNA not to run away when the bullets begin to fly. For little Stevie Harper it is the exact opposite. Even the slightest difficulty and Lyin Steve is arunning away as fast as his legs can carry him. This time he’s up in the Arctic driving his wife’s motorcycle but with training wheels. This is a real man??? I don’t see Parliament coming back till December 2013, if even  then? The activities in the House with members of the opposition hammering him with questions he can’t answer  is clearly not to Harper’s liking. I want to be clear about this. Lyin Steve keeps getting caught with his pants down by Tom Mulcair. So with the Government not sitting and the petro $ media having bought off the $ media [ not the CBC ] the only news we see will be whatever the PMO makes up.  SO WHAT IS MY TAKE AWAY   ?   That the American oil monopoly which is in deep trouble in the world oil market, will spend any amount of money to buy politicians, the $ media  and control governments. The monopoly now owns California, Ottawa and most of the North American petro $ media.  The monopoly has been quite successful in changing California from a democracy into a donkey state run by a few oil executives. Now the local Republicans merely act as errand boys. What you see in California is OUR FUTURE.  We will soon be getting that same full treatment in Ottawa. The Government is laying off civil servants and hiring public relations people to produce right wing propaganda  [ many are from the USA ]. Goebbels would be proud.  It is just a replay of the rise of Hitler and the Nazis. Harper, 25 years ago belonged to the Northern Foundation along with Preston Manning and Conrad Black. It was a white, all male organization that included some neo-nazis and white supremacists. This group was funded by oil monopoly. Herr Harper will be quite at home when his Fascist MPs begin goose stepping around Parliament Hill while giving Himself the Heil salute. His Caucus will sit quietly in the House and await word from the American oil monopoly as what their duties of the day will be. Can you imagine a sellout crowd at the Toronto Dome, all waving little Canadian flags as Herr Harper is driven around the infield in an open Rolls to shouts of the multitude?  Once the oil monopoly is fully in charge on the Hill there will no longer be a need for the $ media like  Thomson’s Globe and Tar / Godfrey’s American Post. The oilies will simply issue decrees. And I know that there are many docile Canadians who will just bow to their new masters and obey. In California all the papers supported the oilies / rich right / Republicans during the takeover. But it did not bring them good fortune and happiness. Once the newspapers there had served the oilie purposes the monopoly threw them under the bus. The LA Times went broke and the San Francisco Chronicle is hanging on by a thread, among others. The media bosses chose wrong. They bet on the wrong horse. These and other papers threw in with the oil monopoly instead of protecting the people’s interests. Possibly David Thomson and his Globe and Tar should consider the wisdom of backing Harper and his employers, the American oil monopoly. This, as opposed to the concerns of Canadians. The Globe and Tar is now telling lies about Lac-Megantic each and every day day. This is not a wise move on David’s part. Siding with the bad guys instead of the citizenry is a bad long term business decision.  Continuing to tell Globe readers that what burned in Megantic was Bakken light oil is far too easy an explanation to shoot down. Benzine is not added to light oil. The soil in the downtown area of Megantic is soaked with benzine. Diluted bitumen is tar mixed with benzine. The stuff is even in the sewers, the lake and it is migrating into the Town. This migration of Benzine will continue until the contaminated soil is REMOVED. Hiding the fact that it was Alberta tar that blew up will probaly mean the death of Megantic. An addition to those who have already died. In My opinion  Our Transportation Safety Board is finishing off its’ investigation. They already know it was DilBit that blew up and burned. Not light US Bakken oil.  But dollars to donuts Harper will keep the agencies that were set up to protect us, gagged. This, until he thinks the public has lost interest.  It has fallen to the petro $ media to put Canadians to sleep with any diversion from Alberta tar that can be dreamed up. The oilies have it all planned, Lac-Megantic will soon disappear into the mists of time as with all the others spills. Once the US oil monopoly takes control of Canada the Globe and Tar will be history, like the LA times. David will no longer be of any use to the Americans. For those like myself, the Royal Canadian Harper Police will probably rough me up too and  seize all of us troublemakers in the middle of the night. Why did you think Lyin Steve built all those new jails?  If you study the history of Hitler and the rise of the Nazis you can see Herr Harper is repeating the process. The Fuhrer was bankrolled by German industrialist who feared the unions. Lying Steve is bankrolled by the American oil monopoly. The planing to steal the 2015 Canadian election is already well under way.  Young, mindless [ UPC ], male  Canadians who are impressed by right think are now being indoctrinated by Preston Manning at his Calgary Institute for regime change. Preston gets oil money as well as running a phony charity. He too, like the Fraser Institute operates on taxpayer’s cash. Revenue Canada now operates as an arm of the PMO so Manning and the Fraser have nothing to worry about.  Rev. Can. only has its’ sights set on Harper’s political opponents and Babs Black’s little people [ the majority mongrel mob ].

*****************************************************************************************************

The City of Burnaby in BC was the scene of a Alberta tar spill 5 years ago from the Kinder Morgan pipeline which carries DilBit from Edmonton to the Pacific coast. You can go on the net and see the geyser of Black Death shooting into the sky. All it needed was a little spark to burn out Burnaby and most of east Vancouver. just like what happened at Megantic. The Kinder Morgan tar mixed with benzine was and is being shipped directly to California heavy oil refineries.  Not to Asia, as Lyin Joe Oiliver keeps telling you.  If ever one of those tankers loaded with two thirds tar and one third benzine caught fire in Barrard Inlet, Vancouver would be toast. The $ media hushed things up in return for? You guessed it, money. But Sicko Harper doesn’t care. When he was a member of the Northern Foundation its’ focus was on keeping Nelson Mandela in jail in South Africa.  Lyin Steve’s interest is in the American oil monopoly making as much money as possible. If the monopoly is not concerned about youngsters being able to breath in California why would they fret over a few Canadians croaking in Quebec?  What’s a few dead bodies got to do with making money? The petro $ media just let this Burnaby spill disappear even though 150 people were sickened by the Benzine fumes. ah yes, Benzine. And to this day the cleanup has yet to be completed. Mind the cleanup for the EXXON Valdez is still not complete after almost 25 years. EXXON was assessed $ 5 billion dollars at the time but to date has only paid $ 500 million. Ronald Reagan and the Republicans Congress let EXXON off the hook in return for political contributions. Reagan thought no Government was good Government, just like Harper. So you can see where our no Government is headed with Megantic and any future fatal Alberta tar spills. In Toronto? In Montreal?  This possibility exists, as long as Herr Harper is in driver’s seat. He’ll make sure his American oil monopoly employers prevail. The oilies have made so many business blunders of late someone has got to pay the bills. YOU. Why not those dummy Canadians who are always in the losers seat. If the Valdez had been carrying the tar and benzine mixture any little spark would have created another Hiroshima experience. As a matter of interest Rex Tillerson got the Green Cross for Safety Award from the oil industry. He was presented with this award 4 days after an EXXON pipeline destroyed a Mayflower Arka. subdivision, innundating it with Alberta tar. In terms of the spill Rex initially said he didn’t know what had happened. But did say it was //  OIL  \\ that was spilled. It was, it was  //   OIL  \\ Rex insisted. The Waybills proved it.  EXXON kept up this //   OIL  \\ nonsense for days while the petrol $ media stayed mum. Again, this time would you believe it? For more money. Then Tillerson finally admitted it was DilBit but since it was NOT  //  OIL  \\ Congress does not require EXXON to pay for the cleanup. Paying Republicans in Congress millions in bribes looks like a good investment for Rex.  This is like living with fairies in fantasyland. Keep changing the rules, always In EXXON’s advantage. Thus the company creates its’ own reality? Of  course Georgie Bush Jr. created his own reality and look where it got him and America?, A one way ticket into the wilderness.  Bush Jr. is scarcely mentioned now. What’s wrong with S. Harper creating HIS own reality? The S stands for sicko. Charles Darwin’s theory is explained by the Fascists / right as the, ” survival of the fittest “. Not true. Rather, Darwin meant that the ones who survive had / have the ABILITY TO ADAPT. If one doesn’t know what is coming down the track how does one adapt? That is the chink in the right wing’s armor. If you live in in Harperland the violent storms are not detected and as a result you get a Megantic. Which in the end has ended the shipping of Alberta Tar [ the Black Death ]. There is human nature and nature nature.  I can at the sound of thunder in the distance and being alerted to those towering anvil clouds begin to gather the kids, tidy up, take in the washing, close the car windows and put the animals away safely into the barn. That, I have the ability to do. However I am powerless in the face of that cumulonimbus monster cloud and its’ destructive forces. It is a fool like Lyin Steve who  thinks he can master a huge cloud on the scale of the thievery in the Senate. He can part the sea. The management of EXXON feels it can control such clouds just like Steve and any other happenings in the world. EXXON spends money and bend everything to its’ own liking. The Company , based entirely on its’ partnership in the illegal American oil monopoly and bribing has been able to survive the twists and turns life throws at the rest us, Babs Black’s little people. But now world events are threatening EXXON’s very foundation. The bulk of the world’s oil and gas now resides in other lands. More and more petro states are doing their own refining. The oil monopoly’s only customer base is in North America and the people here are being squeezed ever so tightly to maintain oil profits and pay for the gastly oilie business blunders. The oil monopoly created by the Republican Congress [ 1920s ] spends vast sums to deny Global Warming while the global population adapts. The monopoly spends vast sums to kill any alternative energy idea that makes itself know here between the Atlantic and the Pacific. But alternative energy options are blossoming in most other western countries. Innovation has been killed off here by the monopoly. The monopoly fears that even the smallest new idea in this regard could be the straw that breaks their camel’s back. Crucial to the monopoly controlling the agenda in North America is a subservient $ media. A press, that for money is prepared to print / broadcast the tallest of oilie lies. That Alberta Tar mixed with Benzine is really  //  OIL  \\.  But the press itself is under extreme pressure. The internet, with increasing speed is occupying their seat at the table. The papers to – day talk about the Un Inspectors going into Syria to check on the possible poison gas release on civilians. Actually, the Inspectors are already there and have fallen under sniper fire attempting to get to the site of the disaster. The mission has been halted now. Why buy a paper with news that is 2 days old. To buy a paper nowdays is to be ill informed. To buy a paper on Monday means you are finding out well after the Saturday race was run who won. And that the bet you placed on Sunday was ill advised. So the oil monopoly can no longer count on the $ media to succeed in brainwashing the citizenry. All the problems the monopoly is having piping / hauling dangerous raw Alberta tar across the countryside and endangering hundreds of thousands of little people is running afoul of an increasingly educated population in the whole of North America. The oilies are playing a foolish game. Canadians may well forget Megantic as the petro $ media is paid to execute. But that just sets up yet another Megantic somewhere else. I would suggest that when the burned bodies begin to pile up eventually Canadians will act. The monopoly’s loud campaign of lies in the media about the Tar grows fainter and fainter. Much hope is now being engendered in the USA industry that oil fracking will make the States a leading oil producer. Fracking can be seen as the ability to clean out what is left in the bottom of the pots after a community supper. Fracked oil wells have a life span of about 5 years. And more and more chemicals, electricity and fuel have to be used to extract the last little pocket of oil. Driving  chemical crud underground is poisoning  the ground water and rearranging how surface water drains. Lakes and river can just disappear. Now the citizens are facing damaged lifestyles and the increasing cost of gasoline to pay for this very activity and monopoly mistakes. How long is the public going to sit still while the monopoly picks their pockets. And at the very same time poisoning / frying  them and their children? So for the monopoly oil fracking it is just a flash in the pan. The monopoly has full control of the refining in North America so it matters little where the oil actually comes from. The monopoly has control over the end product, gas for vehicles. Consumption of gasoline in North America has dropped 20% in the last 7 years. This means there is a surplus of refinery capacity. So what does the US oil monopoly do? They are closing refineries in Canada and turning us into more of a vassal state than we already are. Our conversion to nobodies being aided and abetted by one S. Harper. This Country is being lumped in with the Untermensch Americans to create a captive market for gasoline / diesel where no competition exists [ against the law ]. But the fatal flaw in the monopoly’s approach is to push this huge captive market of over 300 milion into a position where their very lives and futures are at risk. When there are no restraints on Sociopaths like Harper or the monopoly leaders there is no limitting factor as regards their excesses. If Parliament is incapable of guaranteeing honest elections and of reining in this illegal monopoly then civil disobedience or rebellion will be the only answer. It is for this very reason monopolies were banned in the west. They allow unlimited self dealing.  In every other democracy monopolies are illegal. Except in the USA where the Republicans granted the oil companies the right to collude in return for bribe money. And by  extention the oil monopoly operates in Canada as well. Masters in our own house? Not. This bribing Congress has gone on for more than 80 years. brBribing Parliament only started 6 years ago. Old, bad olie habits are hard to break but break them we must. So in North America we are reaping what was sowed by Calvin Coolidge and the Republican Congress in the 1920s. The US oil monopoly tail wags the American dog.  But there is no reason why Canadians should play along with the oilies and go quietly to the cattle cars. We have oil, tar and natural gas. We consume same in finshed petroleum product now imported from the USA at very high prices. There are idle refineries here. Put it altogether and it spells self sufficiency. All we need now is a Government that puts Canadians FIRST.  SO WHAT IS MY TAKE AWAY   ?    To change the direction that Canada is now heading is to ban the transport of liquified Crude Bitument beyond 150 miles from the mines. The tar can be mined and refined in situ by using plentiful / cheap / clean hydro from Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba. This will reduce the cost of production and cut CO2 emissions drastically. The Twin Beaver pipeline would carry refined crude oil [ as in real, benign oil, ready to turn into gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, plastics ect ] across the 55th Parallel to Thompson Manitoba. From there a spur would go to Churchill Man., a deep water port, to access the world market for Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba upgraded, refinable crude oil [ not tar mixed with lighter fluid ]. The Twin Beaver would then traverse Northern Ontario and then on down to Toronto and Montreal. And eventually to the Maritimes. There would be a parallel natural gas pipeline, Alberta / Saskatchewan  to Ontario / Quebec.  Eastern clean / cheap hydro electricity from Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba would be transmitted west to Fort McMurray along the same utility corridor. Made in Canada oil, using made in Canada hydro electricity is a made in Canada solution to our energy needs. We need no longer tolerate the American oil monopoly, an illegal / rogue business. That makes money destroying peoples lives and bespoiling the landscape. when is enoug enough???  Jail Sicko Harper.

******************************************************************************************************

Three years ago an Enbridge pipeline ruptured in Kalamazoo Mich. The liquified Crude Bitumen continued to be pumped out for 17 hours [ 800,000 gals ]. The sensors on a pipeline meant for light oil get destroyed by transporting Alberta tar ladened with quartz sand. The Company didn’t know there was a leak of liquified Crude Bitumen until someone local called in.  Sensors on an oil pipeline get scoured away by the quart sand contained in unrefined bitumen. It has been estimated that if the Gateway is built it will pump 50,000 lbs of quartz sand A DAY. Talk about your 80 grit sandpaper. The sand tears away the inside of steel pipes as well. Eventually the pipes get so thin they rupture, especially at the welds. Welding out in the open countryside with cold breezes as the pipeline companies do can cause embrittlement.  Joints that are like rough glass. The sand makes micemeat out of such welds. But the $ media would never tell you that. Especially Thomson’s Globe and Tar.  Little wonder there have been at least 1000 DilBit spills in the last 10 years that nobody has heard about. All potential Megantics. The media has been paid to remain silent. Enbridge has had hundreds of spills but covered them up with the paid aid of the petro $ media. For days Pat Daniel, CEO of Enbridge, the shipper of the Black Death which was actually owned by the US oil monopoly, maintained that it was only an //  OIL  \\  spill. I saw Daniel on TV and he said just that a number of time. Pat, CEO of Enbridge was lying through his teeth but the press said nothing about the Waybills being doctored. By the way Thomson’s Globe got a full page ad [ maybe worth $ 100,000 ] showing Pat Daniel getting the 2013 Business Leader Award from the Alberta School of Business. It doesn’t seem the //   OIL  \\ community is much bothered by people’s lives being destroyed or death by benzine fumes or fires?  I must alleviate your concern for poor David Thomson doing without. Beside the Daniel ad there were at least 4 more full page ads from the oilies. It pays to wag your tail like David does when the monopoly calls.  So in the recent tar sands wars the Globe has scored at least $ 500,000 for repeating oil monopoly lies. The sole  reason? Is to FOOL you and you and you. The American oil monopoly is prepared to spend big bucks with the Globe to make you look like a sucker. This Kalamazoo spill has been buried by the media in return for cash. The story is of 550 sick residents, 18 deaths, 150 homes condemed, 53 miles of river destroyed and a cloud of Benzine gas that had an affected on people 50 miles down the valley to the southeast.  The ground is saturated with Benzine [ remember that fact ]. This was a story that was put to bed early by the greedy media in return for ad cheques from the oilies. Pat Daniel  finally  admitted that the thousands of gallons that had escaped was not //  OIL  \\  at all.  But raw Alberta tar mixed with lighter fluid. The media mogals took the money and buried Daniel’s admission. Thus few North Americans actually saw that admission that it was thousands of barrels of DilBit that spilled and destroyed the whole area. Smiling Pat never blinked.  The media did its’ job well. The ground at Kalamazoo was / is still saturated with Benzine, and more homes will be condemned and many more businesses will be shuttered due to the migration of Benzine through the water table. Those citizen who raised a stink were intimidated by Daniel.  Armed, private security guards were brought in to patrol around the homes of complainers. The media saw nothing and said nothing. But made lots of dough. Daniel quit in 2012 unexpectedly, he was pulled out of the glare of lights by Enbridge.  He had said too much and was an embarrassment. The Company threw the poor guy under the bus. But to soothe his feelings, in 2013 Pat Daniel was named BUSINESSMAN OF THE YEAR BY ALBERTANS. Did you know that 18 people who died in the Kalamazoo area since the spill were never given any consideration by the petro $ media. That’s how much the oilies in Calgary care about the people of Burnaby, Kalamazoo, Mayflower and Lac-Megantic. These disasters allow us to peek behind the curtain at the elites. Kill a few people [ Pat Daniel ], steal a little money [ Gwyn Morgan / Conrad Black ] , run away from duty and dabble in a bit of perversion [ Tom Flanagan ]. You’re still one of us they are told by the rich and powerful.  Never mind the mongrel mob [  you and I, the Untermenschs ].  The cleanup for the Kalamazoo spill is going to top a billion dollars. This doesn’t even to begin to pay for the damages to the community, future health problems, deaths and businesses lost. Now Enbridge is kicking up a stink and doesn’t want to pay any more for the cleanup. The same thing will happen in Lac-Megantic. Once the petro $ media puts this story to bed and they are all being paid to do so right now, the Town will probably never see any money. Harper offered $ 60 million. I say bullshit. My guess is that he’ll never pay up because the media NEVER, NEVER CHECKS BACK ON STEVE’S ANNOUNCED GIVE AWAYS.  Just to compare, Herr Harper gave his employer, the American oil monopoly $ 850 million for carbon capture and storage. A technique that has never been proven. C,C and S was just a cover promoted over a couple of years to allow even more toxic waste to be dumped in Alberta. Foolish Albertans. Carbon capture is a pure boondoggle. The only thing missing at Kalamazoo was the necessary spark to set off the Benzine. It would have been Lac-Megantic 50 times over.  SO WHAT IS MY TAKE AWAY   ?   It is clear that the management of all of the operations in the tar sands will start  LYING AT THE DROP OF A HAT. IT IS ALSO CLEAR THAT HARPER WILL SAY NOTHING ABOUT THE FIERY DEATHS. It is also clear that the petro $ media will print any and every lie without asking any questions or investigating. The spill of tar slurry containing 33% benzine at Kalamazoo was but a prelude to Lac-Megantic. It is interesting that US elected officials were never seen around Kalamazoo. For Washington it was hands off. The people in Michigan were abandoned by their Government and the petro $ media. They were left to fend for themselves. If the US Government had come down hard on Enbridge like a hammer in this regard Lac-Megantic would never have happened. Millions spent by the American oil monopoly was not for nothing. Republican Senators and House Members were all well and suitably bribed. They are the wimps who would be self appointed Ubermen. And who have no regard for the little people. They are all part of the master race along with Steve who are self appointed exceptional people who worship Nietzshe as their god. The Nietzsche myth only resonated in Nazi Germany and the United States of America. And now the Nietzsche disease is being spread in this Country by Harper and the University of Calgary.

*****************************************************************************************************

March 29 /13  a pipeline owned by EXXON ruptured in Mayflower, Arkansas.  Rex Tillerson lied to the media saying it was //  OIL  \\  that spilled and that he didn’t know the cause. Rex was reading from the same script used by Pat Daniel of Enbridge, Russ Girling of TransNotCanada, Rick Kinder of Kinder Morgan, Hunter Harrison of CP Rail,  Claude Mongeau of CN Rail and Joe Oiliver. They all know it is Alberta Tar that is being shipped illegally and thousands of Canadians are being put at risk. This is the same stance that EXXON took when the Valdez ran aground. Lie, lie, then delay, delay. With the spill from the Valdez it was oil. The US Government was nowhere to be found In Mayflower.  It was liquified Crude Bitumen that blackened the streets, inundated the wetlands and poisoned the water supply. To date EXXON has only paid a small amount to cover the cleanup there. So this lying about so called //   OIL  \\  and a refusal to take responsibility shows there is a pattern. Nothing but falsified documents and lies. The backing and filling by Tillerson is a required move while the petro $ media gets a chance to shut down yet another Alberta tar spill. Only after a few months and things go quiet do the real facts come out.  But by then the bribed media is well paid to never mentions such findings. It is interesting that the newspapers never mention information posted on the net.  Many days after the spill EXXON finally admitted that it was liquified Crude Bitumen that destroyed a subdivision of 25 homes in Mayflower. Did you know that 11 homes there have now been condemned. The surrounding soil is so soaked with Benzine, the fumes of which have seeped into some homes. The local sewers are filled with congealed tar and Benzine fumes. Everywhere those sewer pipes go in the Town will carry the fumes making many other houses / businesses unliveable / unusable. People returning to their homes to retrieve belongings find they can’t breath and their eyes burn. There is no electricity in the subdivision, a spark could blow an individual house up, then the rest would go boom.  State, US Government environmental officials and a local Judge are all playing footsie with EXXON. They are obviously being paid to look the other way. The Mayflower police have been hired off hours to patrol the site. But they are still wearing their uniforms and using cruisers paid for by the Town. The police are paid by the CITIZENS TO PROTECT THEM. However the police are now being paid by EXXON to screw the very people the cops are sworn to comfort and  protect.  Thus this whole subdivision which was engulfed by Alberta tar will probably have to be bulldozed. And the tar slurry mixed with Benzine leaked into the local lake affecting the Town drinking water. Rex Tillerson finally said it was DilBit that spilled after which he further said that  EXXON would NOT PAY FOR THE CLEANUP BECAUSE WHAT LEAKED WAS NOT //  OIL  \\. By maintaining they are shipping  //  OIL  \\ the monopoly, pipelines and railways avoid letting the citizenry in on the secret. Saying that it was just //  OIL  \\ allows the politicians off the hook.  It is the lighter fluid part of the raw tar slurry that is a killer and a destroyer of communities. This coverup could not have happened without the full support of the petro $ media like the Globe.  Thomson seems to make the most money from the great Alberta Tar coverup. This is quite apparent from the number of oil ads place in the Globe by the US monopoly. It is very simple, as long as Thomson keeps singing the oilie song he’ll get hundreds of thousands of dollars in full page advertisement. The people of Kalamazoo and Mayflower are getting little in the way of assistance and are being given peanuts for their ruined lives. Again, the only thing missing was a spark in Arkansa.  I keep using the terms lighter fluid, Naptha and Benzine. They are variations of the same solvent. Few people deal with Benzine or Naptha but they certainly understand when I say lighter fluid. The  Mayflower media has remained  silent.  While those in the Canadian media [ not the CBC ], like David Thomson are being paid hundreds of thousands a pop to mislead the wider population and censor the news. What you are reading in this post and my earlier ones will never appear in David’s Globe and Tar, nor the National Post. By the way Paul Godfrey is going to be the CEO of the Year. Apparently the business community loves its’ killers. It is interesting that the papers are being paid to NOT REPORT THE NEWS, as in self censorship.  Nice.  SO WHAT IS MY TAKE AWAY ?  What we have seen in Burnaby, Kalamazoo and Mayflower was  the precursor to Lac-Megantic. I waited a few days before commenting to see if things would unfold in Megantic the same way as with the other spill?. And that is exactly what has happened. CP Rail keeps insisting that the cargo was light oil from the Bakken field in ND. That is a lie which Herr Harper should have dealt with immediately. Harper and everyone in his Government, including Joe Oiliver and Gary Doer knows what blew up in Lac-Megantic was Alberta tar mixed with a 1/3rd lighter fluid. In Burnaby the spill left the soil soaked with Benzine. At Kalamazoo the soil in a large area adjacent to the river is soaked with Benzine. In Mayflower the subdivision is knee deep in Benzine. The remedy to Benzine contamination is to dig a deep hole and remove all the soil, very costly. If the Benzine is left it will migrate and contaminate an even bigger area. In the end the affected area will be like a moonscape, unihabitable. Unable to grow anything. If this keeps up the people on the moon will be able to look up at earth and see all the blighted areas caused by the DilBit spills. In Mayflower it is early days but we seem to be headed in the same direction. I think the subdivision will have to be bulldozed. I don’t think the soil will be removed as much of it is wet lands. The benzine will migrate down into the valley to the south and again after much sickness and many deaths Mayflower itself may well be abandon.  Just after the spill the FAA announced a no-fly-zone at the request of EXXON. Thus Mayflower became the newest State of the Union. The State of EXXON. Local police and private security guards strong armed anyone attempting to enter the site. The local media was bought off or threatened by EXXON. There was a public outcry about the no-fly zone and the FAA quickly retreated. No doubt FAA officials were paid off by EXXON. But in the interum EXXON had spread thousands of rolls of white paper towel over the wet lands covered with Alberta Tar so the black could not be seen from the air. This is what you get when your government  grants a monopoly to the oilies as Republican President  Calvin  Coolidge and the Republican Congress did in the 1920s. This same crowd that caused the 29 crash on Wall St. This monopoly, which exists in the US and dominates Canada is responsible for the high price of your gasoline and Harper won’t raise a finger.  In Lac-Megantic where the flattened centre of Town is knee deep in Benzine too the officials in charge already know what happened. As soon as the flames died away and the investigators could get onto the site those in charge had all the answers. By Harper not informing the first responders and clean up crews that they were dealing with liquified Crude Bitumen [ Benzine ] not light oil all of those involved were put at risk. Daniel of Enbridge did the same thing, lie, lie, lie until public interest waned. Dollars to donuts some of the Kalamazoo worker are now suffering long tem health problem, especially with their lungs. Benzine fumes can ruin one’s lungs and cause chemical pneumonia. The press has remained silent.  Tillerson of EXXON likewise did not inform first responders and cleanup people they were dealing with raw tar / lighter fluid. Again Benzine soaked the soil at Mayflower. The press has remained silent. Now the good people of Lac-Megantic and their heroic rescuers have been put at risk by Harper maintaining it was just //   OIL  \\. The centre of Lac-Megantic is saturated with Benzine. LIGHT OIL DOESN’T CONTAIN BENZINE. In Mayflower the die has been cast. The Medical Officer of Health in Arkansa has stated that anyone who develops health problems is on their own, EXXON can’t be held reponsible. I wonder how much EXXON paid him for that statement? Like I wonder how much Gary Doer is getting paid to tell lies about the Keystone project which will carry the Black Death? What the investigative officials at Lac-Megantic are doing is marking time till public interest dies out. Then the petro $ media can concentrate their sights on M, M and A, the engineer  and poor Edward Burkhardt, their chosen scapegoats. M, M and A is going to go bankrupt and that will keep readers occupied for a while.  Story after story will appear but nothing about the towering inferno caused by Alberta tar mixed with Benzine. When the coast is clear some official will quietly report, it was really tar not Baken light //  OIL  \\.  By then things will have become so confused, a confusion orchestrated by the oilies, PMO and the media.  The public will not understand that it was Herr Harper, is the person who sentenced 50 people to a fiery death. The coverup campaign now in full swing by the petro $ media will guarantee another Lac-Megantic conflagration at another time, in another place. Then there will be another. And yet another. This because Harper and his Fascists are convinced most Canadian are patsies. So far they have been proven correct. Too many Canadians keep falling for Steve’s line of bullshit, hook line and sinker.  The question is. How many patsies will have to be fried before the remaining patsies show some spine??? Hitler had his ovens.  Herr Harper has his Lac-Megantic thanks to the likes of David Thomson’s  Globe and Tar and Paul Godfrey’s American owned [ illegally ] National Postl.

*****************************************************************************************************

How do we get out of this American oil monopoly trap? And escape total servitude?  These would be my recommendations. []   1   []   Charge Stephen Harper with murder [already explained ].  []   2   []    Remove him from Office.  []   3   []   Harper’s majority after he stole the 2011 election was only 10 seats. He has now lost more than that number with MP resignations, criminal charges against MPs and other misdemeanors. He doesn’t have the Confidence of the House. Crooked MPs who tell lies don’t count in our system.  []   4   []   The NDP and the Liberals should form a Unity Government along with those who are true Progressive Conservatives like me. Not Fascists who hide behind our stolen banner. This could mirror Winston Churchill’s War Cabinet.  We too have a crisis on our hands. Simply put, the US oil monopoly needs Alberta’s raw tar to feed its’ heavy oil  refineries that are idle. These are located in Duty Free / Tax Free Zones on the Texas gulf and the California coast. Said refineries were converted to process Venezuela heavy oil about a dozen years ago. A huge, huge blunder by the oil monopoly.  Hugo Chavez put a stop to that idea by nationalizing his oil industry and raising the royalty rate to 32%.  Eat your heart out Albertans. They only get 8%. The only way to get the raw tar to the these refineries is to add lighter fluid [ naptha / benzine ] in order to thin the mix for transportation by pipeline or rail. Burnaby, Kalamazoo, Mayflower and Lac Megantic and a thousand other spill are the result. About this carnage we are never informed by the petro $ media in return for money. The victims have been the dead, the dying, the injured, those who have lost their homes and businesses. As well as communities that have been gutted. The only people who make money from this Black Death cargo are the poiticians, the American oil monopoly, the American Enbridge Corp., the American TransNotCanada Corp, the American Kinder Morgan Corp., the American CP Rail, the American CN Rail, the American National Post, the Canadian petro $ media [ Globe / Sun / Toronto star ] and others. Alberta gets 8% on the raw tar. In other words the Province get the price of the pigs tail. The monopoly makes money on the whole pig. Some business people those Albertans? In areas around Fort McMurray some of the 175 toxic tailing ponds have been breached by the recent Alberta floods. Not a word from the press.  Spilling poisonous swill into the river systems brings no punishment. It is an ecological disaster which the 8% royalty will not begin to clean up. So the US Government gets no taxes when the tar is refined in Texas or California before the resulting oil is sold overseas. In fact there is no tax on DilBit when it goes through the pipelines of EXXON, TransNotCanada, Enbridge or Kinder Morgan. In regard to spills the taxpayer’s foot the bill and will continue to do so until they grow some spine. It is such a sweet deal, no wonder the monopoly keeps Steve Harper on staff. []   5   []  The Unity Government  should ban outright the transportation of liquified Crude Bitumen beyond 150 miles from the source.  []   6   []   Transport Canada staff should be cleaned out and replaced with competent, knowledgeable people. As must the National Energy Board.  []   7   []  A new Environmental Act should be established by Parliament.  []   8   []  New pipeline and rail regulations should be established. []   9   []  The Unity Government should meet with the Provinces to give force to the National Energy Stategy wherein cheap / clean hydro electricity would be transmitted to Alberta and Saskatchewan for use in the oil /tar industry. This from Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba. The only link missing in the Cross Canada Electric Grid now is between Manitoba and Saskatchewan The Twin beaver pipeline would transship refined crude oil and natural gas to the east across the 55th parallel hydro right-of-way. A spur would take finished crude oil and natural gas north to Churchill Man., a deep water port. This would give Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba petroleum products access to the world markets. The Commonwealth itself has 2.2 billion people who are now being screwed by the American oil monopoly.  The Twin Beaver lines would continue into Northern Ontario, down to Toronto, west to Windsor and east to Montreal to existing refineries to be made into gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and plastics. From there the refined oil pipeline would travel to the Maritimes. There is already natural gas on the Atlantic coast in Canada. Many of the existing oil refineries in Canada have been closed by the US oil monopoly to render Canada further helpless. Those shuttered refineries should be expropriated. Tough new environmental laws might just force the monopoly to sell infrastructure cheap. In Alberta and Saskatchewan the new laws would force the monopoly to clean up all of the tailing ponds and their accumulation of toxic waste. If they failed to do so we would obviously seize their assets. Mark Carney said there is about 600 billion dollars residing in Canada looking for investment opportunities. We don’t need foreign investment and we don’t need foreigners coming in here to pick the Canadian carcass clean. This Nation is extremely blessed and well endowed. Harper has us limping along while his American friends walk out with the bulk of the booty.  In short order by tackling the liquified Crude Bitumen crisis we could as Canadians become masters in our own house. All it would require is the will of the people. We had better move soon or like the Californians we will have our democracy snatched away by the American oil monopoly. And for many the clang of the gate at the concentration camp as it close behind us will long be remembered. Life will not be an easy one under Commandant Jenni Byrne, Harper’s right hand girl. Jenni reminds me of Dorthea Binz, a bonde Nazi who ranked high at Buchenwald. She always carried a whip which she used at will. Binz was hung in May 1947 a Nuremberg. Byrne doesn’t use a whip. Our Jen prefers a Hakapik. A Hakapik looks like a surveyors hammer with a very sharp needle point. It is used to kill seals with a single blow. When Harper’s concentration camps are set up Jenni Byrne is going to be the Commandant. Wish me good luck.

*****************************************************************************************************

And finally, what can we do about Lac-Megantic. I have some ideas. The Unity Government must move temporary offices into the Town in the form of trailers. Mayor Colette Roy-Laroche and Council could decide what services are required. Premier Pauline Marois could be offered office space to house her officials. There is no way Quebecers should pay a cent toward the Town rehabilitation. The Unity Government would immediately set up an inquiry into how liquified Crude Bitumen got from Alberta to Lac-Megantic behind the backs of the people. Obviously those responsible are all lying. And should be jailed.  If the actions of those involved as well as companies are not satisfactory all of their assets should be seized and held until the completion of rehabilitation. The soil in the centre of the town is soaked with Benzine and it must be removed forthwith. All of the sewers damaged by the toxic tar have to be dug up and replaced so that benzine gas doesn’t render standing homes / businesses uninhabitable / unusable. Once the Benzine contaminated soil is removed there will be a crater in the middle of Lac-Megantic. Houses / buildings cannot be constructed on fill. The rebuild can take place on pilings. The contaminated soil should removed immediately. A plan should be drawn up for the new downtown. The necessay pilings should go in first, then the sewers and then the other services like water and electical. This part of the operation should be fully covered by the Unity Government. Once up to ground level the owners of the property would determine where they go but their costs would be borne by the Unity Government. THEY MUST BE MADE WHOLE. After all Herr Harper gave the American oil monopoly $ 850 million for Carbon Capture and Storage. That dough went right to their bottom line. The oil monopoly / CP Rail has more than enough assets in Canada that could be seized / sold to recover the cost of of restoring Lac-Megantic. Executives with the monopoly, pipelines and railways who have lied / are lying and who have broken environmental / transportation laws should face jail. I’d take great pleasure seeing them in the hoosegow with Harper. Another group that should be fined and jailed are the media owners who aided and abetted this crime. We can recover from this but it will take guts to tackle the American oil monopoly and their errand boy Lyin Steve. Or should that be Hiding Steve.

**************************************************************

Answer me one question. Where does the American oil monopoly find so many Canadians who are prepared to lie for money? But in the lying lives are put at risk. What is the forfeiture of a life worth in this Country? A few points increase in the stock value on Wall St.? The loss of innocent lives should translate into a term in jail at the least.

HOW TO SOLVE TORONTO TRAFFIC GRIDLOCK / NOW JAMMED / DEATH, LITERALLY BY CO / THE REVENUE TOOLS SOUGHT BY KATHLEEN WYNNE * ROB PRICHARD * BRUCE McCUAIG * JOHN TORY * CAROL WILDING ET AL ARE REALLY BURGLAR’S TOOLS / DON’T YOU GIVE THEM A BLOODY CENT 26/04/13

Being a techie and a mechanic I have been a trouble shooter all my life. There is an old saying that hangs as true to-day as it did back then. 80% of solving a problem is knowing what the problem really is? DON’T MAKE A MOVE UNTIL   !!! YOU !!! K N O W !!!  WHAT THE PROBLEM IS !!!!!  First you define the problem you are facing. With that in hand you then look for solutions? What are your options?  For each option you do a cost / benefit analysis. This does not have to be a big deal. people do it every day.You have a coolant leak in your car. The water pump is dripping anto freeze. Do you buy a pump from a wrecker, get the pump repaired, buy an aftermarket pump or a genuine replacement from you car maker. The little people [ as termed by Lady Black ] are quite capable of making good decisions, that might surprise the elites.  If presented with gridlock / transit options and the costs of each the people in T O will be able to decide what to do next [ I trust Torontonians ]. Purposely keeping the citizens in the dark as the movers and taker are doing now with the help of the $ media will solve nothing and move us ever closer to revolution. This, no matter how much money you give them. Back to the anti freeze drip.  If you are going to trade the your vehicle shortly then a used pump would do. For a fairly new car you’d go aftermarket or genuine. Once you go through this process you know what you are going to have to spend. This is not  rocket science. In terms of traffic gridlock / public transit the process is no different. But the $ media is being paid by the insiders to keep []   YOU  [] the citizen ill informed and confused. In Canada we live in a Government media censored Country just like Nazi Germany. The press here is kept on the advertising leash by Herr Harper, the US oil cartel and under McGuinty. Be critical of this three headed monster and the TV / newspapers / magazines come off the advertising list. For Phil Crawley [ Globe and oil ], John Honderich [ Star } and Paul Godfrey [ American National Post ] to speak the the truth is to forgo big cheques. The losing of hundreds of thousands of dollars for a principle is a bridge  too far. Kathleen  Wynne / Tim Hudak / John Tory / Carol Wilding / Bruce McCuaig / Rob Prichard et al are now trying to squeeze more money out of you, the little people . We  are already being squeezed by the elites who are stealing the wealth of this Country for themselves. At every turn they self deal. Not one of them knows what problems are causing Gridlock. These money grubbing graspers have the whole thing ass backward. They want your money. First. Tons of it. Then they  are going to look for the solutions. Rots of ruck. If you give them a thin dime you are insane and deserve every thing you get. As well you deserve to be disowned by your grandchildren for ensuring them a life of want. A fool and his / her money are soon parted. At this rate if you do agree to pay you will find [ surprise / surprise ] that the problems will still be there, only much worse. I accept that there are parasitic people in our society like Conrad Black who will take anything that is not nailed down. Black has led a life dedicated to lying, cheating and stealing. This is perfectly in keeping with Herr Harper’s approach. We have laws on the books to deal with such criminal activities and we muct make use of them. The only problem is that many of these parasites like the Conman come from the ranks of the rich and powerful. The elites go out of their way to protect their very own. The $ media is paid to spin the news as in the case of Moses Znaimer and Harry Rosen. Present examples of this rehabilitation process are of course Conrad Black but Brian Mulroney as well. Black is a British citizen and a convicted criminal. Mulroney, a former PM who took cash while in office  and lied in Court [ he extorted $ 2 million from Canadians ].  Mulroney was not entitled to this money because he lied under oath.  Both of them, Black / Mulroney are crooks who are been given get-out-of-jail-free cards by the elites. There are now ongoing campaigns to shoehorn both of them back into Canadian society and erase their records. The Globe and Post are doing a sterling jobs in this regard. I note that lying, cheating and stealing are becoming much more prevelent in Canadian society, fully accepted by the elites and the $ media. As well as Black and Mulroney you can add the names of Herr Harper and devious Dalt McGuinty. The upper crusters get off in the Courts or they get let off by their bretheren. If one of us little people steals a loaf of bread or is caught sleeping in the park it is off to the Kingston pen. The petro $ media gives favourable coverage to each well heeled newsmaker [ crook ] in return for money. Far too much ink is wasted on the Conman Black writing about himself [ what a nice guy is he ],  Lyin Brian Mulroney trying to rewrite history [ he took cash while in office and then lied ]. The ink would be, could be, should be better expended on fixing our gridlock /our public transit / our electrical system for example. The media is now being paid to support yet another cash grab on the issue of Toronto’s cars grinding to a halt and slow buses. I have a pile of clippings on these subjects that is now at least 8 inches high. It is all useless blather. Its’ sole purpose is to confuse. Not one of the journalists / commentators involved has an inkling as to why Toronto is choking on traffic, thus they offer no solutions. So why bother, money my dear friend money. I read an article by Royson James in the Star [ from back in 2000 ] and compared it to his recent columns. He is no farther ahead to-day than he was back then. The man probably has 30 years writing experience but it is but one year’s experience 30 times over. Royson is incurious, is mentally challenged, he never seems to think for himself and is content to just keep repeating the Star line. Yet he got an award??? For what???  12 years worth of pure dribble on gridlock? Just to mislead the public. It is a bit too much? This shows where the Star is in the scheme of things?  I have a number of pieces by Chris Hume of the Star, same story. Chris, doesn’t have a clue about traffic. He rides a bike and hates cars. He is another foreigner, from the UK. You know I don’t appreciate people like Chris coming from another country, shooting their mouths off and telling Canadians what to do. We can speak for ourselves if the media would only let us speak? But now we have the net. Too many right leaning journalist who come here [ especially from the States ] find a wide open door to the Harper dominated press. They don’t know anything about this grand land but they are well versed in the Nietzsche myth and right wing ideology. There are too many of these righties interlopers in our newspapers.  But the internet has changed that game. The Star, Globe and Post have never printed any of my technical stuff over many years. As regards the Sun. I wouldn’t be seen in that rag. Appearing beside Ezra le Rant? No thanks. I have yet to figure Hume out. He is certainly not a believer in democracy, like so many other self appointed exceptional people. The interests of the citizenry are to be ignored according to Chris. HE knows better. Here is a man who is not only dishonest but has a confused brain to boot. Chris is a disciple of the infamous Jane Jacobs.  He’s spent the last 20 years helping his pals at City Hall and Jane’s fans create gridlock.   To-day he says that politicians / officials in T O have wasted the last 25 years doing nothing. He himself, takes no resposibility for the mess. This is like Hume buring a barn down while playing with matches then blaming the firemen for not doing their jobs?  John  Honderich of the Star like other paper owners thinks his readers throw their papers away after a couple of days and therefore won’t remember what was printed last week. Not me. I could fill a book with Star blunders, lies, misleading and false information especially on the nuclear crisis. On Gridlock Honderich and the Star get a zero. every day John makes things worse. If you want to understand Gridlock don’t buy the Star. In Canada we actually live under Government  press censorship like Nazi Germany. Hitler controlled the press by force. In Canada the press is controlled by the advertisers. If you have enough money you can say anything you want.  Chris Selley, Jonathan Goldsbie and Matt Gurney [ unpaid or should be lightweights are at the National Post ], these 3 boy Mouseketeers had a mindless piece on gridlock and transit [ another one ] the other day. Jerry Agar of the Sun is another moron who has been commenting on Toronto Gridlock. Pierre Peladeau can’t really be paying for Agar’s mindless claptrap can he?   How come the only people allowed into this print debate are the ones who don’t know what they are talking about? We have the old timers like Rex Murphy / Lorrie Goldstein / Terry Corcoron / Peter Foster who are desperate for their monthly oil cheque and will follow any order and write anything asked. Then you have know nothings like Selley, Goldsbie and Gurney who are ignorant of the facts and who write stupid things for little or no pay. What they engage in is like teen gossip. Who would pay for such babble?  Right leaning groupthink doesn’t solve problems. The righties are so restricted in their area of search for references  nothing sensible can come from it. Those on the right never seem to access the knowledge of experts nor go on the net to pursue the truth. So who really cares what they say? Herr Harper, himself, is in his very own La La land. Lyin Steve is a certifiable Sociopath. The National Post is on its’ death bed [ losing $ 50 a year ]. Besides Gridlock and transit  I have been gathering additional clippings on our electrical system, Queen’s Park problems and City Council for more than 20 years. There has been a lots of talk but little action on all of these fronts. Much huffing and puffing by these information challenged newspaper scribes but what they do is of little benefit to the population in the end. There has been a move away from the elected representatives serving the interests of the people to MPs / MPPs  serving the interests of the special interests. This betrayal can only be accomplished if the $ media is bought [ dollars ] onside. But times, they are achanging. In recent days with the Duffy / Wallin / Wright situation has captured public attention in spite of the $ media coverup. The CBC is leading the charge. No wonder Lyin Steve wants rid of the CBC.  I have developed solutions for many of our difficulties. After all most of the problems that bedevil us are all related to machines. It takes a mechanic to fix a machine. I am sure there are others with mechanic minds out there in space who also have helpful suggestions in this regard. But we have all been shut out of this debate by the money interests and the $ media.  It is interesting to watch the illustrious  John Tory continually yapping about Gridlock and transit but Johnny doesn’t have a clue. Because, because, Tory’s friends, the insiders make lots of money FEEDING OFF these people problems. Never solving any of the City’s problems means good paying jobs for them for life. And the never solved problems can be used as a club with which to extort even more  money [ as is being done now ]. In this recent grab for cash for gridlock and public transit, it is just a continuation of what has gone on so many times before. It is a well trod path for the elites.  Time to put a stop to it.  Not solving gridlock and not solving the  transit problems allows for this ongoing  State sponsored extortion. The petro $ media loves State sponsored theft because they get a big cut. Telling the truth to the citizenry brings with it no reward. In a sense it is a neat system. The governments and corporations pay the media to spin the news and sometimes lie or  even make things up. Then YOU pay them to buy one of  their newspapers and read the propaganda. So what YOU are doing is actually funding the destruction of this democracy. Your payment encourages the media to spread even more lies.  And in so doing YOU make  life for everyone else  progressively  more miserable. YOU are crafting your own noose knot by knot. It defies logic. But at this moment in time you have a chance to change the game by putting your head in gear, just getting off your ass, tucking your wallet in your pocket or purse,  opening your mouth to  loudly demand change and commit yourself  to electing MPs / MPPs who have the public interest at heart. An educated voter won’t be sucked in [ can't be ] by Robocalls from Herr Harper, Danielle Smith and Tim Hudak. Don’t give dime to City Council , TTC, Civic Action, Toronto Board of Elites or Rob Prichard / Bruce McCuaig of Metrolinx. Let’s fix these problems once and for all. You can do it, you have a vote, use it wisely. Demand that your MP / MPP look after your interests for a change. As stated, I am a PC and started to work for the Party in 1960 [ Leslie Frost was still Premier ]. Back in those days MPPs represented their constituents. To-day there is a Party machine calling itself PC but they are really right wing Fascists under Mike lite leader Tim Hudak. Both my PC Parties, in Ottawa and Ontario have been taken over by Republican Sociopaths from the USA who see Canada as just another shakedown target. To them we’re worth a few billion on the hoof. The Liberal Party machine under McGuinty was just as bad. Liberal MPPs over the last 9 years have shown themselves to be perfect little, well behaved sheep. If you vote for a PC / Liberal MPP without getting his / her commitment to look after your concerns you are voting for the current mess. It should not be that tough a  choice. Let’s see what you and I can do about Gridlock at a price we can afford. I am prepared to take over as Car Czar and work with MPPs [ any stripe ]. In fact if you want the Gridlock problem addressed we can start next week. There is a clear choice. Give the insiders a ton of money and solve nothing. Or DEFINE THE PROBLEMS, then solve things for a small amount of money. I would happily meet with an MPP or any group of MPPs in an informal way to discuss solving Gridlock. How about next week?

**********************                                                                                                                                     *********************

Now we’ll cut to the chase. I have to go back 60 years to explain Toronto’s traffic / transit problems. We have to start at the begining.  After the War the TTC, City traffic engineers and planners started to develop an overall plan for the roads and public transit in the City. It was a unique approach, involving the two modes of travel, cars and streetcars entwined. Years ago such activity had no politics attached to it. The experts beavered away and now and again Council was involved to give direction. Central to this new approach was the Yonge Subway and the Spadina Expressway / Subway plus a number of other major road / transit initiatives. At that time 50% of the jobs in Toronto were in the area below Bloor St. [ Humber to the Don River ]. Getting people into this space by car or public transit was key. The new tracks and roadways meant some disruption to individuals in order to permit growth.  A small group of well connected elites in the Annex didn’t want the low lifes in the north of  Toronto travelling down through their neighbourhood either by car or transit. Such elites still control the planning for roads / transit in the present day [ just look at the Metrolinx plans ]. This Annex group never numbered more than 50 [ late 1960s ] in a City of 2 million. The Stop Spadina Committee  initative was well connected and the Toronto papers had a field day. The press has always prefered conflict to solving problems. In fact at times the papers have / do deliberately create chaos and conflict to attract eyeballs. The truth is unimportant to the press.  Advertisers love eyeballs, they pay big time for eyeballs.  A lot of noise was being made about the Spadina, this caught City Council flat footed. The technical people involved in the planning and building of transit and the expressways in those days had no political expertise. It wasn’t their job. Council just ignored the Stop Spadina group, thinking the noise would go away, the protest was small and seemed so selfish. It was me, me and me again.  At each step of the way the Expressway / Subway plan had been approved by the Council DEMOCRATICALLY [ by votes in the majority ]. But Councillors themselves did not respond to the protests by promoting the plan to Torontonians, showing what was in the works and the advantages to the City. The roadway / transit plan was never formally sold to the voter. But in those days Councillors were much more in tune with their Wards. Support for these improvements came up from the grassroots.  The protesters were the City’s first NIMBYs. This Stop Spadina activity started in the late 1960s. Protestors were mostly drawn from the U of T and the Annex [ as said never more than 50 ]. They did not want traffic in their backyard. Interestingly, this group never bothered to educate itself as to the much larger/ unique City plan in the works to twin transit and roads. The S S Committee was formed officially in 1969. At that very same time one Jane Jacobs [ the curse that keeps on giving ] arrived on our shores fresh from NY City. She was a mother of two boys living in an area of tenements in Greewhich Village. Some of which were slated to be torn down to make way for elevated thruways [ like our Gardiner ]. Such projects were under Urban Renewal Boss Robert Moses who had been hired by the NY Mayor. Bob’s actions were outside the democratic process.  He hated public transit and loved cars.  Jane was a shit disturber par exellence. The kind of person who would put her baby’s carriage in front of a bulldozer. She had been arrested for disrupting meetings. And to make matters worse for Jacobs her 2 sons were nearing draft age. So she crossed the border and arrived in Toronto [ 1969 ] with an arrest hanging over her head in the US and a couple of draft dodgers sons. Jane, her husband and  sons  deserted their Country [ like Tom Flanagan did ], coming to Toronto to supposedly help us [ so her backers say ]. But she actually used us to revive her career. Jane had written a book in the early 1960s about city planning. Her ideas were simplistic, failed to take in the larger picture and only applied to certain American cities like NY. Toronto was not one of them.  Jacob’s approach fitted perfectly the mind of the Stop Spadina Com.  Don’t get into the details, have your own way, a sort of one note Janie.  There was a husband and wife writing team in the Annex who were planning to write a book about stopping the Spadina. Jane and this couple met up. They concluded they could help one another. Jacobs would help with the proposed book , she would take over leadership of the Stop Spadina and use her protesting experience. This raised Jane Jacob’s profile in Canada and resulted in a number of later books and a much enhanced reputation [ for a short while ]. Many of Jacob’s predictions have proven wrong. Jane, in some ways made things worse instead of better. But people like Chris Hume [ Star ] would never admit as much. At that time [ 1970 ]   2/3 rds of Torontonians owned vehicles [ now it is more than 70% ].  Jane coined a cute phrase , “cities are for people “. Cities are indeed for people but she had crackpot ideas on how to get to HER dream community. What the  rank and file thought did not much matter. Jacob’s was once asked what she planned to do with all Toronto’s cars. She replied that wasn’t her problem. That’s the moment our City’s Gridlock was born. Simplistic ideas are the  easiest ones to peddle until reality sinks in. At the height of the Spadina debate Bill Davis was elected as leader of the Ont. PCs in 1971.  A Provincial election was scheduled for the fall. The Spadina Ex was a hot topic and as a new leader Davis was looking for every vote he could get.  Bill cancelled funding for the Spadina Expressway but the Spadina Subway plan continued.  It was one of the few time I disagreed with Premier Davis. I thought he folded on the Spadina without understanding the larger picture and to this day Bill doesn’t realize how much damaged he caused this City. Davis ignored the democratic process which had produced a massive plan [ at least 15 years in the making ] for roads and transit. So why have an elected Council if at any time 50 selfish people can  come along an upset the apple cart with the approval of Queen’s Park?  Ab Campbell, Metro Chairman complained that the Stop Spadina Com. never offered any alternatives. Protest groups don’t think that far ahead. Stop something and everyone lives happily ever after. In a fairy tale that is.  The Davis move unravelled the entire road / transit plan for Toronto, 15 years in the making. This plan was unique in that it melded vehicles and public transportation into one unit. That opportunity was lost and we inherited the mess we have to-day. Now there are 4 separate camps that are constantly at war which is exactly the City Jane Jacob’s envisaged [ cars / streetcars * buses / bicycles / pedestrians. She promoted war against the government, so American, so right wing.  Nobody wins this kind of internal war. And we keep electing Councillors who play to their own insider group. I would imagine that the traffic engineers responsible for the now dead master transportation plan [ 1971 ]  just threw up their hands and moved to other more enlightened jurisdictions. Working in a City where 50 selfish Stop Spadina fruitcakes were able to determine policy for 2 million would have been a challenge too far for our traffic experts. Looking to Toronto’s future ceased being. In terms of the City Council future elections were run on the basis of Jacob’s war cry, ” Cities are for people “. Since municipal elections generally have a 30% voter turnout, in a 3 candidate race 10% of the total Ward population [ 55,000 voter ] can pick the winner. Every gal and her uncle candidate ran on the, ” Cities are for people ” nonsense. By 1975 Torontonians began to wake up to the mess Jane Jacobs and her U of T friends / Annex buddies had created. Polls showed that more than 50% of the people wanted the Spadina Expressway finished. But the humpty dumpty transit / road plan was now in a million pieces. And all the king’s men could not put it back together again. What was set in motion is the position we now find ourselves in Gridlock and a lousy transit system to boot. There is no political will now to really solve these problems, only political interest to use this mess to extract more taxes.  The anti car zealots have held sway over Toronto for 30 years. During this period the City was going through growing pains as the surrounding Towns were merged with it [ Etobicoke, York, East York, Swansea and Forest Hill ]. These moves added to the confusion with many Councillors fighting for home turf. Roads and public transit were not high on the agenda. In keeping with the teachings of Jane Jacobs vehicles would to be made to disappear or their drivers punished and forced into bankruptcy. With people driven out of their cars they would be forced onto the TTC so thought Council. Full in the knowledge that drivers would be turned into riders by Council the TTC was able to dispense with any semblence of customer service. The , ” Better Way was the only way “. Monopolies breed contempt for the customers. So we have had 30 years of a Council putting more and more roadblocks in the way of 70% of Torontonians who own cars. Driver would not and have not surrendered their cars to ride a slow / dilapaded / outdated transit system. The Council just kept redoubling their efforts to Jane Jacobs  drivers in every way possible. No traffic impediment in the tool box remains unused. To add to these problems Mike Harris and his right wing zealots decided to amalgamate the City in 1997. There was a referendom on amagamation with 75% opposed but when did that ever stop the right wing who know better than the people? I was working for Mike Harris during the 1990s. You are looking at one naive PC supporter. I didn’t realize my Party had been taken over by the hard right American Republicans just as it is to-day under Hudak. The Pres. of the Ontario PCs to-day is Richard Ciano. If you remember the last time we heard about Rick he was instructing at the Preston Manning Institute on how to steal  / rig elections in the 2011 Federal Election. The young Harper Youth after being brainwashed by Manning, Ciano and Kouvalis then spread out across the Country to actually steal the election. And you know what?  They succeeded.  Canadians may now be under the Fascist boot permanently. The fix is already in for 2015.  Their efforts to put Herr Harper and his Fascists in the driver seat without a legitimate vote was successful. It counts as another Republican win. Hudak has indicated he and Ciano will use the same tactics to steal the next Ontario election, Robo Calls and all. That is why Hudak is so confident he can win without being popular. Give Tim an election and he will cheat his way in.  American money and Republican election stealing expertise has already been put in place by Hudak / Ciano. One of the things which drove all parties at Queen’s Park in the 1980s / 90s was the fear of Toronto growing so big that it would become the tail that wagged the Ontario dog. MPPs of all stripes wanted the City to grow to world status but disrupting its’ operation a little bit suited their purposes. So Harris amalgamated Toronto. But what Mike also did was create the dysfunctional Council system that we see in operation to-day. This he did on purpose. We have 44 private fiefdoms looked after by a Councillor in each. They have no responsibility to the City as a whole. The Mayor is the only city wide elected official. The Mayor then forms an executive committe from the ranks of the 44 in most cases buying allegiances to get anything done. Councillors on the outside then work against the Exec. committe and for their particular Ward. It is like a sand box full of squalling brats with nobody looking out for our great City. In too many cases the Toronto Councillors dole out money to their Ward friends and supporters. Thus the City gets the short.  Torontonians get little for their tax dollars. Queen’s Park is now obligated to step into this situation and clean up the Jane Jacob’s / Bill Davis’ / Mike Harris’ mess. The MPPs bought this problem by interfering. So after a 30 year love affair with the Jane Jacob’s anti car myth, the constant changes in the City boundries and a dysfunctional Council thanks to the Ontario Tories we are in one hell of a mess. Both Tim Hudak and I were involved with the PCs when the decisions were made to bring us to the edge of this cliff. Tim was just out of school when he joined the PCs, having moved into politics without ever having a real job [ just like Herr Harper ]. I was and am a throw back to the Frost, Robarts and Davis era. I did not realize that my PC party was being stolen out from under our very noses by the US  Republican right. I have not changed my views on the original PCs. It was the best. A right of centre party that worked closely with business, demanded competence in business leadership [ no crooks like Conrad Black ],  but enforced the law , promoted a sense of community, looked after the less fortunate and punished greed [ the give me, give me, give me ]. For 42 year Ontario blossomed under our real Progressive Conservative Party. A Party with a heart. Since the hard right wing ideology was been adopted by both the Mike Harris / John Tory / Tim Hudak PC and the devious Dalt McGuinty / Kathleen Wynne Liberals [ 1995 to the present ] this Province’s economy has tanked. For 70 years the economic theories of Friedrich Hayek have never worked. He was a phony and a plagiarizer.  Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr., Georgie Jr. and the Republican Party have brought America to its’ knees. Now the US right with the help of Harper and Hudak  [ the HHorror twins ] are trying to do the same number on Canada. How do we fight back? I’ll tell you. Elect MPs and MPPs who are not trained seals and who will work for YOU. The turnaround can be started by solving one problem at a time. Why don’t we try to fix Gridlock first. It will be relatively inexpensive to accomplish. So listen up.

********************************************************************************************************

The elephant in the room is carbon monoxide not CO2. The increase in CO2 emmissions is killing the planet in the long term but carbon monoxide is shortening lives this very day. I have been after David McKeown, our grandstanding Officer of Health to begin testing for carbon monoxide in Toronto for more than 2 years ago. He prefers to appear in the  headlines. In Europe they take carbon monoxide seriously. In some cities it is against the law to drive a vehicle with a gas / diesel engine into the centre. Some American cities are now testing for CO and as a result putting in restrictions.  But the thrust of Toronto’s Council for the last 30 years has been to tie traffic into knots on purpose. This of course has destroyed the public transit system also, in terms of being a reliable / efficient people handler. It is a kind of  three run homer for the councillors. They are poisoning the whole population, non drivers too, especially the old and the young. They have drivers sitting stranded in their cars. And they have riders sitting stranded in buses / streetcars. Now that is some kind of accomplishment by Councillors who did not and still don’t know what they are doing. It is time Queen’s Park stopped wasting time and got its’ act together. The Legislature will get no bouquets from the $ media as the movers and takers try to stop the Metrolinx money tap from being turned off. I discovered the Legislature already has a Standing Committee on Toronto Gridlock.  We could be working on this tomorrow. City Council, has over the last 30 years put at least 2500 major traffic impediments in place. I MEAN ACTUAL ROADBLOCKS. This was / is done on purpose, in the spirit of Jane Jacobs. When I was on Pickering Council in the 1970s we were building subdivisions and we needed the help of traffic engineers. Their thrust was to make traffic flow. In to-day’s world these engineers have been replaced by traffic calmers, whose job is to impede traffic. Idling engines increase emissions by 20 times, like it is real smart filling the air with carbon monoxide. Toronto Traffic Services has acquitted itself very well. Above and beyond the call of duty in fact. By being so creative in slowing down traffic so efficiently and filling this City with a poisonous cloud of car exhaust. I am sure that the TTS management regularly attends Toronto Council to have their wee pointed heads patted for a job well done. It is the story of the blind leading the blind. Hundreds of millions of dollars has been spent on impeding Toronto drivers. No wonder your taxes keep rising and you just get more frustrated. Well for cripe sakes do something about it. Call you MPP, any stripe and demand the frigin problems get fixed. Elected office is not for thumb twiddlers and gravy trainers. When the new Council came to office I offered to drive Mayor Ford around and show him why we have Gridlock. He didn’t respond to me. I got started studying Gridlock in depth about 3 years ago when a City staffer said it would cost $ 328 million to hire consultants to do a Gridlock Study. That was just outrageous. So I began a closer look and have developed a plan to reduce gridlock by at least 25% in the first phase. Here’s how.

*********************************************************************************************************

I wrote about Toronto Gridlock a few weeks ago. I know that most of the movers, takers and grabbers are not familiar with the internet. They stick to the old means of communication like newspapers, magazines and TV. I knew few of them would read my blog on Gridlock, so I printed off copies and snail mailed them to a group of about 50 of the noisiest people in the campaign for new taxes. They are demanding new revenue tools [ taxes ] for Gridlock / transit. Now they have an actual piece of paper in their hands outlining how to begin solving Gridlock immediately at a bargain basement price. The recipients of my letters were the papers, magazines, TV and radio along with reporters,  journalists and commentators. In addition I sent copies to politicians [ Feds / Queens Park  / City ].  Do you know, not one of them responded to me. I fully understand. Following my ideas would cost THEM AND THEIR FRIENDS too much money but save YOU a lot. In real terms,YOU DON’T COUNT WITH THEM. The huge pot of tax dollars they are hoping will materialize to share with the other elites will vanish if my proposals are adopted. The solution to Gridlock / better transit is for YOU to become better educated on the subject. Instead of demanding that the elected representatives make your life less burdensome. Get into the position where you have enough knowledge and can tell your MP / MPP what YOU expect him or her to do. And this doesn’t mean acting like a trained seal under control of a political party machine. I have already outlined my Gridlock plan in an earlier post. Apparently 50 of the movers and grabbers don’t want to hear about my fix. It won’t fill THEIR pockets with cash.

******************************************************************************************************

For at least 30 years Toronto City Council has been has been purposely putting up barriers to impede vehicles. The idea is to slow traffic down to such an extent that drivers will abandon their cars and take public transit. The problem is that in slowing traffic the Councillors have slowed the TTC buses and streetcars and rendered the system useless. If you go on the net look up traffic calming. It shows the methods by which traffic can be discouraged and slowed. Toronto is home to most of them. More traffic lights have been installed than required and they are deliberately out of sync. 4 way stops are at small dead end streets. Pedestrian crosswalk lights go red when there is nobody there. On main streets construction goes on for weeks with a little bit done every day. Sometimes a street will have 3 construction sites all at one time and there is no effort made to coordinate the work. Little pockets of FREE PARKING are arranged so that 4 lanes roads are reduced to two lanes over and over. Some intersections are purposely designed to be a barriers to traffic flow. Parking signs are confusing, this allow roads to be blocked by parked cars at different time so as to slow traffic. The best asphalt is used to create speed bumps and the pot holes [ of which Toronto has hundreds ] are left unfilled.  Couriers and delivery trucks are allowed to block major roads all day long without getting ticketed. This while the parking ticket fairies roam the back streets and leafy lanes giving citations to young moms and seniors who are unable to fight in Court. The City has created special fishing ponds for the Police to pick off motorists at the bottom of hills etc. Signs are rigged to reap speeding tickets not control traffic. There is much more but I am sure you get the  idea. The time has come to start to fix the situation. We  don’t need to raise taxes. We need 55 MPPs with backbone to tackle the issue.

*******************************************************************************************************

Toronto has about 10,000 streets. Most normal cities have 4 types of streets, local, arterial, collectors and expressways. Our City is not normal. We have local streets, collectors and expressways. The Council has turned our arterial roads into local roads. Take Eglinton Ave. It is a Concession Rd. going back to the time of John Graves Simcoe. Concession Rds. in this part of Ontario run east / west every mile and a quarter [ Bloor, St. Clair, Eglinton, Lawrence, York Mills, Sheppard, Finch and Steeles ] . Side lines run every half mile, north / south  [ Yonge, Bathurst, Dufferin, Keele, Jane and Weston. Within each rectangle there are FOUR one hundred acre farms. Concessions and sidelines have wider road allowances than regular streets and can provide 4 lanes of traffic and accomodate left / right turn lanes. Eglinton is the only street that crosses the City [ E /W ] from Kingston Rd. to Hwy # 27. Council has created a series of bottlenecks from one end to the other turning what is an arterial road into a local road. This on purpose. Yet if you read the Toronto specs for roads these bottlenecks are not even describe. They are hidden. So what we have is a City that is surrounded on 4 sides by expressways [ Gardner, Hwy # 27, Hwy # 401 and the Don Valley parking lot. In the middle is a seething mass of traffic thanks to our friend Jane Jacobs and the City council. Each year the people who hate cars celebrate Jane while they and their families slowly die of carbon monoxide poisoning. And when they get real sick the ambulances must negotiate speed bumps, stop signs, restricted streets, stop lights out of sync and try to get around stalled traffic to get to hospital. If  Jacob’s fans love this kind of thing good on them. But there is no reason why the rest of us 3 million people should put up with this kind of shit. Now most of City Council and some MPPs at Queen’s Park want more taxes to fix what they themselves have caused. It is like the guy who kills his parents then asks the Court for relief since he is now an orphan. Don’t pay any attention to the $ media. They are wetting their pants over the thought of all that money [ taxes ] you are going to contribute.  Don’t give the greedy grabbers a bloody cent. This is how we proceed.

**********************                                                                                                                                    **********************

The Legislature Standing Committee on Toronto Gridlock will temporarily expropriate about 20 concession and sideline roads in Toronto. The City Transportion Services Dept. would be relieved of command in this regard. Tor. Parking Services would also be taken over by the Province. The 23 roads have been outlined on my master map. Each one is designated as a Thru Rd. Which means 4 lanes from end to end. NO PARKING EVER AND THAT MEANS EVERYBODY. At least half the stop lights would be removed. No left turns at side streets from 7 am to 7 pm. Left turns at all stop light intersections only [ and right turns ]. Intersection lights in sync and changeable for rush hour. Pedestrian crossings [ X ] only at stop lights wherein pedestrians go with traffic flow. Only vehicles with licence plates and insurance will be allowed on Thru Rds. NO BICYCLES EVER.  Ticket Officers will patrol the Thru Rds.  Cars / couriers will be ticketed and towed. Standard Tow trucks will patrol the Thru Rds. continuously. If there is a parked vehicle it will be hooked to the tow truck and an Officer will attend quickly, issue a ticket and authorize the tow. The won’t be any no parking signs on the Thru Rds. Only occasional signs designating them as a Thru Rd. The rights of pedestrians will be respected but the idea is to separate them from vehicular traffic for their safety. Bikes will have 400 acres of roads to toy around in each quadrant. Bikes will be able to cross Thru Rds. but cross only in safety. There is a lot more to this plan and it isn’t necessary to go into all the details here. I will do that with MPPs. Let’s run Jane Jacobs out of this City on a rail. We have a great City that is being run like a hick town, enough is enough. TELL YOUR MPP YOU WANT TO START FIXING TORONTO GRIDLOCK TOMORROW. AND CITY COUNCIL BEFORE THE NEXT ELECTION. The Mike Harris Council curse must be eliminated.

*******************************************************************************************************

The $ media owes it to Torontonians to ask Kathleen Wynne what is her plan to deal with Gridlock? To call her bluff. She is asking for big bucks so her costing must be tied to some kind of plan? What is it? As stated, three years ago a Toronto City staffer said it would cost $ 328 million for consultants to study Gridlock and come up with a plan. As stated it was outrageous, just another theft of public money. As far as I know that study was never done. So it would follow the Council knows zippola about Gridlock. For MPPs like Wynne, it follows that they would know even less than zip about Gridlock. Yet Wynne and her pals want a blank cheque without knowing what direction to go in. The other day the head of Toronto Traffic [ Calming ] Services  said it would cost $ 20 million over the next two years to put some of the traffic lights in sync. That too is outrageous. It would be like pissing into a 150 mile an hour gale for all the good it will do. My plan would cost less than a quarter of that amount and solve at least 25% of Gridlock. This post will be copied and sent out to the 50 tax grabbers by snail mail. I don’t expect a single one of them to respond to me. Eventually I will name the names of people who want your money but who have no plan and will never solve Gridlock. The $ media will never ask Kathleen Wynne such tough questions. The media bosses can smell the tax dollars and they’re not about to LET YOU OFF THE HOOK by promoting affordable fixes for Gridlock. For the media there is no money to be made telling the truth.  Before the transit system problems can be addressed the solutions to eliminate Gridlock must be in hand. Metrolinx was set up by McGuinty as another avenue to use to enrich his friends like in the case of Ornge. Rob Prichard [ a 2 time loser ] has accomplished nothing to date and will never accomplish anything in the future. It is interesting that Janet Ecker, former PC MPP [ I worked for her and quit / she wouldn't listen / nor did Mike Harris ] was appointed to the Metrolinx Board by Prichard as a means of covering his ass if Hudak gets to be Premier. It is a good possibility is Ontarians continue to snooze. The election cheating dirty tricks employed by the Republicans Stateside have been imported into Canada are very hard to defend against. Unlimited money from the American oil monoploy is a powerful tool. The sooner Prichard and Metrolinx get the axe the better. I would freeze Metrolinx. Prichard should be sent home on paid leave while all of his deals with McGuinty’s friends are scutinized. I think we will find Rob is involved in criminal activity. We may not be able to prosecute devious Dalt McGuinty but we could sure nail Prichard.  Bruce McCuaig is a McGuinty errand boy. I’d send Bruce back to sweeping floors at Queen’s Park. I’d fire the Board including Janet Ecker. Only hands on people should remain at Metrolinx just to keep the ship afloat until we deal with traffic.  First Gridlock has to be tackled. Then we can look at public transit.

AN EXTRA

Christy Clark’s Liberals pulled off a stunning defeat the $ media would have you believe. Not so. Due to the control Herr Harper / American oil monopoly has over the media, [ millions of dollars in advertising ] the real story of the BC election is not being told. The oil industry was deathly afraid the NDP would get elected and that would be the end of the Gateway and Kinder Morgan pipe lines. These pipes will to carry the Black Death, a combination of liqified crude bitument / poisonous gas.  The NDP was leading in the polls right up to election night. Now the pollsters are  ALL  making excuses for their now usual screwups. The pollsters fumbled the Fed election which Harper stole in 2011 with the help of the American right. The pollsters missed Danielle Smith’s big defeat [ she also used Robo Calls ] a year ago in Alberta. Alison Redford won. Do you remember? The Harper media has not let up on Premier Redford since that time. Every move she makes is portrayed as a huge mistake / scandal by the press. Oh the power of the purchased press. When there are no scandals in Alberta the Harper / oilie media just makes things up about Redford. In terms of the BC election. Christy Clark now says she will govern without calling the Legislature, this until she gets a seat. What we have is the potential of BC being ruled by a private citizen [ Clark ] with Herr Harper’s help for some period of time. The Leader of a political party has no standing in the BC Legislature or any Legislature for that matter. Clark isn’t an MPP at the moment and may never attain that status. It is suggested that she will run in a By-Election in a safe Liberal seat when one is declared vacant. So some poor Liberal who just got elected will have to desert his / her constituents to make a place for Clark [ Christy is Harper's latest acquisition ]. If you were one of those deserted constituents, would you vote Liberal again? Wouldn’t you feel used by Harper / Clark? In such a By-Election the NDP could / would mount a massive campaign against Clark. I’d remind people of the turncoat Conservatives. Did Harper help Clark with Robo Calls and dirty tricks? The petrol $ media is silent. Steve helped Danielle Smith suppress voters as he provided help with cheating by PCs in Manitoba and Ontario. The petrol $ media is silent.  What if Christy then lost the By-Election? She’d  have to find another safe seat. Having a private citizen who is answerable to no one  governing BC would be a bit too much. Then what would Clark face, best 2 out of three? Maybe  5 out of seven? Here is the low down on the election. The oilies were very concerned about a possible NDP win as was Harper. My guess is that Lyin Steve ordered the Conservatives in BC to vote Liberal. That resident  crook Gwyn Morgan and other high profile Cons. like Stockwell Day were pitching for Clark. The Conservatives did not win a single BC seat and dropped from a 23% standing a week before the vote to just 7%. Old time Progressive  Conservatives must be ticked to see their Party support Clark on Lyin Steve’s orders. The Harper media did not even mention the Conservatives on election night. It is as if they just disappeared from the face of the planet. Harper will expect Christy Clark to toe the Fascist line for having got her elected. She may have already made a deal to okay the tar pipe lines and tar tanker traffic. Amateur photographers should keep their cameras ready to catch Christy Clark kissing Stephen Harper’s ass. The pollster were not really wrong. But Harper’s operatives could not let the poor saps who do polls in on the fact that the fix was in, the PCs helping the Liberals. Interesting, Harper spends huge amounts of under the table oil money to attack Justin Trudeau and the Liberals nationally yet he backs the BC Liberals to prevent the NDP coming to power. The Conservatives are a dishonest bunch and beneath contempt like their Republican masters. The Repubs say, ” if you ain’t cheating you ain’t trying “. The petrol $ media remains silent. Harper is actually mentally ill, he is Sociopath [ suffers from UPC ] in every sense of that word. Three clear signs, he runs away when pressured, he lies constantly and finally, he says one thing and then does the exact opposite.  Steve learned all this at the University of Oil in Calgary. The Calgary School is connected with the  University of Chicago and teaches the same right wing subversion techniques and promotes regime change. Leo Strauss [ who taught at the Univerity of Chicago ] preached the Noble Lie. He said do anything you must to gain power and then everything you need to hold onto power no matter if you have to cheat or lie. Strauss was a student of the Nietzsche myth.  Conrad Black is a Straussian and a Nietzsche graduate [ self appointed exceptional person ]. This too is the Preston Manning’s creed. The taxpayers are funding Manning’s subversive activities. Preston’s tax funded Institute gives instruction on how to steal elections. Tom Flanagan was Steve’s teacher. Herr Harper’s antics would make Tom and Leo Strauss, the old professors proud. Now we have another stolen election for Harper in BC. An Ontario election can’t be too far off. Hudak and Harper are already into the planning the Robo Call campaign, they’ll try to steal this one too. Is Canada really a democratic Country? I am beginning to have my doubts. Harper, Smith, Clark and Hudak, there seem to be no end of right wingers who are prepared to cheat other Canadians out of their democracy to please the American Republican puppet masters. But there is a shadow on the horizon. Herr Harper may be on his way out. Mike Duffy was paid $ 90,000 hush money by Harper to keep his mouth shut. Duffy was scamming the Canadian taxpayers to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. And Harper rewarded Mike with our cash instead of putting him in jail. But poor Nigel Wright had to take the reponsibility and fell on HIS SWORD FOR THE EMPEROR. Apparently Nigel was long involved in PC politics going back to Brian Mulroney [ another crook ] and it turns out that Nigel is just another brainless right wing clutz who acted as a bag man. Reviewing Wright’s, career it turns out that he is a wimp [ UPC ], just  like Harper. In fact most of Lyin Steve’s Ministers are wimps [ UPC ]. Why are there so many small brained people in politics who are just stupid and have no sense of politics? The right wing masters need small brained MEN to do their bidding.  Nigel Wright,  Joe Clark and John Tory are just three examples. Paying Duffy private hush money to protect Herr Harper is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen. Wimps are good at breaking laws and bullying others like the case with Doug Findley. In fact Finley was little more than a back alley thug [ as is his wife Diane ]. Diane said EI receipients shouldn’t be allowed to sit at home collecting cheques. When Doug got cancer Harper put him in the Senate to live off the taxpayers. Is this a law for the PM’s friends and another law for the little people?  Nigel in lending Harper $ 90,000 to shut Duffy up just made the scandal worse, much worse. But Wright will get his $ 90,000 back in the form of a severence package for sure. So his personal money has never really been at stake. It is the Canadian taxpayers who are going to pay for the whole Duffy affair. The Duffster stole from the public treasury and now has been given a $ 90,000 bonus at OUR EXPENSE. I will work to see Harper, Wright,  Duffy and Wallin in jail, among others. I’ll bet Diane Finley even gets some of Doug’s Senate pension. If so, that too would be double dipping. Harper calls his Party Conservatives. I call them Facists. But I may just change that to Double Dippers. It would seem that everyone in Lyin Steve’s camp is on the taxpayer’s take including staff and MPs.

AN EXTRA EXTRA

In Canada a person is innocent until proven guilty. Apparently John Honderich of the Star and David Thomson  owner of the Globe and oil don’t understand this basic Canadian right. Hearsay evidence is NOT ADMISSIBLE IN COURT. Having the Star and Globe basing accusatory stories about Rob and Doug Ford on unnamed source is wide open to abuse. Too many times we have found reporters / journalists just make things up. The newspapers [ all in poor financial health ] have fired most of their editors. There is nobody checking stories now. Ezra LeRant is a good example, he lies and makes things up. I say, no proof no story. Both John Honderich and David Thomson have track records of publishing false and misleading information and lies in the past. They have been abusing the readers for years. Why should anyone believe the Star / Globe now? I think this attack on the Fords is related to the boys not being elites. Honderich’s Star has been taking nukie advertising money for at least 8 years and lying about our nuclear plants. Nuclear power has destroyed Ontario’s economy and Honderich has taken blood money to assist in our destruction. Over the past couple of years the Star has published doctored picture supposedly taken around the Pickering nuclear plant. These pictures show swimmers, kids playing on a beach and sailing in close proximity to the plant. No such activity can take place. Such trespasser would be arrested. These doctored pics have been produced by Tom Mitchell people, he is CEO of OPG. If you remember he supposedly works for us, costing $ 1.7 million a year. Tom’s nukie propaganda and bogus picture [ I complained many times to John Honderich ] is playing us for fools with the permission of devious Dalt McGuinty. Mitchell hands ratepayer’s dollars to the Star to mislead us, the ratepayers. Should we believe John Honderich [ a confirmed cheat ] when he makes things up about the Ford brothers??? David Thomson lies to us on a daily basis about the tar sands in Alberta. He buries spill stories and prints American oil monopoly propaganda. In return the oilies fill the Globe with full page ads which contain false and misleading info and lies. So we should believe Thomson when he attacks the Fords based on hearsay??? I am surprised that nobody of standing is prepared to defend the Fords. The petrol $ media remains silent [ except the CBC ]. The Fords are innocent until PROVEN guilty. Hello John Cruikshank.  Nothing I have seen so far justifies the media feeding frenzy we are now witnessing. I thought we had gotten over the Spanish Inquisition practice of allowing accusers to hide behind a screen. Let Honderich and Thomson produce their sources. Unless a man is prepared to make his statement in public it is of no value. Only ball less cowards hide in the shadows. Only men of questionable character like Honderich and Thomson would use the words of cowards. This is Yellow Journalism at its’ worst. This is a dark time for Canada. But there may be some light over the horizon, the internet. The main stream media doesn’t control the net although in concert with Herr Harper their trying very hard to close it down. Hitler was into book burning, this to eliminate the mind of the German people. Lyin Steve is likewise trying to render Canadians mindless. Harper and the Repubs are doing this by controlling the media [ except the CBC ], cancelling the census, eliminating the pursuit of science, muzzling academics, rewriting the Country’s history and smothering the arts. It is the worst of all worlds. Having the American oil monopoly give a Sociopath like Herr Harper and unlimited supply of money. What I find interesting yet again is that Canadians are funding the destruction of their own Nation. The American oilies are price fixing so we all pay too much for gasoline. Harper refuses to investigate this illegal price fixing. Some of this illegal profit is paid back to Lyin Steve to short circuit our democracy. At last count I am being read in 87 countries around the world. The question which is being considered by most of my readers is when are Canadians finally going to take resposibility for the mess we are in? Will it be that they only wake up after they hear the clang of  Harper’s concentration camp gate closing behind them. Throughout the ages empires have come and gone. There is a common thread runs through each failure. An incompetent or corrupt leadership and a docile public. Right now Canadians score very high on the docile chart.

ENBRIDGE PIPE NO. 9 COULD GO BOOM / EXXON DILBIT SPILL AND POISONOUS GAS ATTACK IN ARKANSAS / TAKE TWO / EXXON HATES YOUR KIDS.COM * HOW TRUE / REX DOESN’T LIKE SENIORS OR THE DISABLED EITHER / TIME TO PLAN OUR ESCAPE 10/04/13

  1. I was heartened to read in Paul Godfrey’s National Post [ owned by an American hedge fund /which is illegal ] that the air is getting to the point where people can actually breath again in Mayflower Arka. This after liquified crude bitumen was spilled in the Town. A cloud of poisonous gas was released. This very encourging news came directly  from the Republic of EXXON where company police and air controllers were / are maintaining law and order in the air as well as on the ground. Rex Tillerson is the gate keeper in the US now. The Government in Washington, State and local Governments have responded to this crisis by disappearing down a gopher hole. Politicians who represent the citizens in the area have vanished also. They are probably down that hole too. If any one of them opens their mouth they won’t get any more EXXON cheques. To get real serious, I have been writing about this DilBit problem since the Kalamazoo tar spill. It was clear to me from the very beginning that adding lighter fluid [  lighter fluid is benzene or naptha  ] to sand laden tar slurry as TransNotCanada, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan have been doing is a life threatening  proposition. I caught on to the basics of this toxic brew [ DilBit ] very early but the details were almost impossible to find. The petro $ media was and is being paid to cover the situation up. There is a conspiracy of silence and misinformation.  The cartel / pipe line co.s / $ media have been extremely elusive. And elected representatives and government officials are weak kneed.  There was / is an organized cover up by the US oil cartel /pipe line companies . In spill after spill of DilBit the pipies and oilies have been very secretive. In fact they pose a danger to our society. The $ media asks no questions, nor did they protests when banned from the numerous DilBit spill sites. It is sort of coreographed. Godfrey of the Post says to Crawley of the Globe, gee whiz, EXXON won’t let us look in on this spill either, ah shucks. Then Phil and Paul get handed their cheques from Rex.  Government officials are always vague about spills and the actual local elected representatives themselves disappeared or they go mute. Under such circumstances it bothers me little if an accident happens and Russ Giling’s, Pat Daniel’s and Al Monaco’s families lose their homes, are severely injured or even die. Be it an explosion, poisonous gas or lifestyle problems I care not. If they want to be a bomb makers then they have to accept the fact that the thing might blow up in their faces and take their loved ones with them. Tough shit. However, to have EXXON, make what amounts to a bomb and plant it in Mayflower Town behind the backs of the residents just so Rex Tillerson and his executives can get their  raises, it is way too much to take.  EXXON provides what are truly outrageous pay packets [ $ 25 million per year for Rex alone] which in a sense is stolen money. Tillerson makes big money while the little people along his pipe lines bear all the risk. A risk about which they are unaware. This time around it is the residents of Mayflower who have suffered loss and who have been forgotten by the petro $ media. To EXXON how much are the children of  North America worth? This practice is unacceptable in a democracy. But then again, America is only a pretend democracy. EXXON and the other parts of the sneaky US oil cartel OWN Congress, the Supreme Court, State and local politicians and the petro $ media. In a sense the affected little people [ as Lady Black would have us ] in Kalamazoo and Mayflower might as well  have been carted off to a concentration camp someplace to be disappeared. This, after their experience in what amounts to a brief visit to a  Nazi gas chambers. They are forced to go in silence, to suffer the ill affects of DilBit gas poisoning. Not a single champion do they have. It is a sad commentary on life in the Ruined States of America.  All of the residents affected by the Kalamazoo / Mayflower spill should be under strict Doctors care at this very moment. Not 5 years from now when young people start dying of lung ailments. Rex has muzzled these poor people and is offering them bribes if they keep their mouths shut. This is Nazi Germany all over again.  Many  / most will die early as a result of these gas clouds. 18 people have died so far from the Enbridge Dil Bit spill and gas cloud in Kalamazoo. You didn’t know that did you? Things are very serious as regards the dangers of DilBit / lighter fluid being stuffed in an oil pipe line on the sly. This is corporate cheating.  The transportation of liquified crude bitument should be stopped cold, right now. And the true nature of DilBit should be ascertained. We already know the outcome. DilBit will be banned.  All the people of Kalamazoo, BC / Burrard Inlet, Northern Alberta and Mayflower should be gathered up for observation and treatment by independent doctors [ specialists in gas injuries ]. Uncertainty and stress should not be added to their health problems, as it is  now. In addition each person who has lost property or had their lifestyle affected should be compensated by the Governments involved. Which then can recover the moneys involved from EXXON, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan. Failure to pay such levies should result in the expropriation of  US oil cartel property and assets. Not one of these victims should be forced to take legal action on their own as is the case now. Tillerson, the other CEOs and all the cartel executives should be forced to chip in a few million to make the victims of DilBit whole again. Handing out apology flyers in Mayflower won’t cut it rex. If  Tillerson and his pals don’t play ball to our satisfaction we should seize their holdings then put them in jail. And if we let the US oil cartel and the pipe line companies walk away from these accidents scot free as we did Enbridge in Kalamazoo and as we are about to do in Mayflower then we lose the right to call ourselves civilized. But as always the Geeman has a plan B.  Hydrogen is the fuel of the future. Rex and his pals have spent hundreds of million with the $ media  trying to keep hydrogen off the public’s screen and cheating your kids out of a future. They have largely succeeded. Publicizing the evils of hydrogen on a daily basis as the media has been doing has had an affect on ususpecting people. Especially in light of the fact that Herr Harper supports EXXON [ and the other cartel members ]. After all, Harper and his dad worked for EXXON.  Attacking hydrogen, electric cars, wind, solar and Global Warming,  is following the Goebbel’s rule of telling lies over and over until they become the truth. The media being paid by the lie to repeat the lies.  In the present environment with a bought media, trying to introduce hydrogen will be all but impossible. But if the Provinces join forces under Premier Redford and her NES hydrogen could be put to the top of her to-do-list. We need to instigate Provincial free trade. I note with interest that the story of Mayflower Arka. is as hot as a 3 dollar pistol on the internet. In the 4 newspapers I buy [ Tor. Star, Globe & Oil, National Post and Tor. Sun ] the Arka. spill is but a memory now. Kalamazoo has already been well buried.  The papers are getting paid to bury every DilBit crisis as it occurs. Journalist and commentators are doing likewise. I wonder how much each one of them is paid by the cartel to include the words NEP and Alberta OIL in their articles. The Trudeau NEP is a myth that was created by the US cartel and the substance being shipped in refined oils pipe lines all over western North America in liquified crude bitument [ not oil ].  There is no end to how blind people can be who are on the oilie / pipie payroll [ like Joe Oliver / Canada's chief Government liar ]. Oliver is to Harper what Goebels was to Hitler. Oiliver recently had heart surgery [ I didn't know he had one? ]. This means he is on blood thinner [ Warfarin as I am ]. This blood can affect the brain and I believe this is Joe’s problem. Thus he can be excused for making so many goofy comments and telling continous lies. Oiliver has made Canada the laughing stock of the World.  The Post did have a short piece on the air quality in Mayflower yesterday as reported by EXXON. There was  absolutely nothing about the plight of the Town or its’ residents.  Of course there is a reason for this silence. The US oil cartel, TransNotCanada, Kinder Morgan and Enbridge can’t just hand the petro $ media [ John, Pierre, Phil and Paul ]  bribe money. No. What the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers and the Canadian Energy Pipe Line Association do is act as covers for the oilies and the pipies. These hired body guards /shills  place large ads in the newspapers / on TV to ensure that the media is well rewarded for playing ball and staying  silent . Just to-day both Paul Godfrey [ Post ] and Phil Crawley [ Globe ] got half page nonsense oil ads [ saying nothing ] from Brenda Kenney, the know nothing who heads CEPA. Brend’s ads like her, tell lies.  The ads are worth probably $ 150,000 a copy. When the Kalamazoo [ Safety Board ] report came out Pat Daniel and Al Monaco filled the papers with full page statements that were full of lies [ at possibly $ 250,000 a pop ].  The Kalamazoo spill on cue disappeared into the ether. As stated 18 people in the area have died. 153 victims are now  under doctor’s care. 550 people with breathing problems were examined by doctors. 53% of them are suffering ill effects.  They are all but forgotten by the $ media as the Mayflower victims now are.  Money increasingly does determine what news makes the printed page.  I have all of these clippings in my files. A couple of notes. Crude Bitument is not legally oil according to an IRS ruling. So any journalist who uses the word oil in relation to these spills is a liar and he or she is being paid by the oilies or the pipies. Do you want to live your life according to what Enbridge / EXXON want  you to know? They are setting up hundreds of thousands of people for the next few poison  gas clouds.  Another interesting revelation is the research done by a number of organizations on the news  coverage of the DilBit spills of late. They checked to see how many times these toxic tar spills / gas clouds were described as oil. This is more or less my reason for instituting the Journalistic Hall of Shame as featured in my earlier post. When my clippings show that  DilBit is being described as oil it is enough for me to brand that writer a liar and a cheat. It is like calling an elephant a watermelon. It is so stupid it is stupid. But the Harper press lets them get away with it. Will YOU?  How can so many writers be so stupid. Apparently getting an oil cheque makes one instantly stupid. There were a few results on the net relating  to the number of times the word oil appeared in the press after a DilBit spill. Oil it is not. The internet investigators also noted the number of times the word DilBit appeared in a given number of articles. Some of these conclusions  come to mind, 45 oil mentions to 4 DilBit mentions [ remember it is all DilBit ]. Then 70 oil to 3 Dilbit and the winner was??? A thousand mentions of oil to one mention of DilBit. That is what the $ media is doing to you, taking oil money to misinform you, big time. Playing you for a fool until next time. Are you that fool? These lies are particularly present in the press.  So be forewarned, newspapers have become nothing more than dollar store advertising flyers for the US oil cartel and their pipe line buddies. And as you know advertising flyers have little to do with real life. So you have choice. Live in EXXON LAND or live in the real world? Let this be the moment we change gears. Our hydrogen future lies just beyond that big door. Be brave and ” Carpe Diem “. Translation, ” grab the door handle “.

**********************************************************************************************************

The EPA should hoist Rex Tillerson’s ass out of the Spill Control Centre in Mayflower Arka. Can you imagine bank robbers assisting in the investigation of the bank they just burgled??? I have a world audience and will say to my far flung readership. Only in the Ruined States of America, a supposed democracy, does money trump the laws of the land and the rights of the individual citizen in such a crass way. And these Yanks brag and point fingers at other countries, particularly the Republican Sociopaths.  The EPA should fly a medical team into Mayflower to oversee the treatment of the victims of this EXXON gas attack and learn firsthand the outcome. Any person knowingly loading a pipe line meant for oil with liquified crude bitumen, any company executives responsible for ordering such actions and the $ media owners / writer/ commentators who publish or broadcast false and misleading information about DilBit spills should be subject to fines or jail or both. The executives of any oil company [ within the oil monopoly ] and / or pipe line firms that has another DilBit spill from this day forward should be sentenced to long jail terms with no chance of getting out early like Jeffrey Skillings. He masterminded the emptying of the ENRON vault and got 24 years with no parole. Now there is news he might walk early. My two questions. What did this early release cost his friends or did Jeffrey have an off shore CASH stash like Conrad Black? And who in the Government and Court system got paid off? My deep concern is for the young people who might have had their lives cut short or suffer ongoing health problems because of  the poisonous  gas released for EXXON’s ruptured pipe line in Arka. or the Enbridge spill in Kalamazoo for that matter  Already Tillerson has his hundreds of shill out in the $ media blaming people for telling lies about the spill. Apparently the no-fly-zone has been lifted by the FAA. I would think that the Agency got into the shit for turning the skies of America over to the control of EXXON. In response to having eyes in the skies Tillerson covered the swamps where they pumped the black DilBit with paper towels so the black tar would not show up. Remember Americans, your Republicans granted the oil cartel this monopoly in the 1920s. How much have the right leaning Repubs been paid to look the other way in the last 90 years.  True to form, Sociopaths are selfish, lack empathy for others, lie,  never admit mistakes, never back up or rethink the situation, they are cunning and always blame others. Once again we end up at the doorstep of an Undeveloped Prefrontal Cortex, that missing societal nodule. All Republicans, oil cartel executives and Harper’s Fascists are missing this key nodule. They should all be imaged [ MRI ].  What is their’s is their’s. And what is our’s is their’s too. You have been forewarned. Clearly,Rex Tillerson is American’s very own Josef Mengele. Our children are indeed not safe.

******************************************************************************************************** 

NEWS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS   —   I buy the 4 Toronto newspapers but not to find out what is happening in the world. The world is not covered by them. I buy the papers to find out what Herr Harper and his Fascist party are up to and what to expect next. As a pilot I learned an old sailor’s tale which works. Try it. In terms of clouds in the sky it goes. ” Fish scales and mare’s tails make big ships carry small sails “. When clouds look like a series little marshmellows or long wispy clouds like a horse’s tail it means inclement weather in 24 hours. It works like clockwork. Those little clouds are very high and signal the approach of bad weather. As a bush pilot with White River Air Services, [ owned by Stan Deluce, father of Robert Deluce owner of Porter Airlines ] I had no access to accurate weather reports in Northern Ont. in 1954. Each day as my trusty Stinson lifted noisely off the glassy water I had to read the sky for some idea of the day ahead. I read the papers in the same way each day to see what Harper is up to. I am a Progressive Conservative and a Tory. I have been long familiar with Lyin Steve and his right leaning anti Canadian views. Harper stole my Party [ PCs ]. Steve is a sort of body snatcher. He is not PC, Conservative nor Tory. He is a fascist who follows the Nazi train of thought. Each day we move closer to a police state wherein a person who doesn’t agree with this illegal Government can be picked up in the middle of the night without access to a lawyer. In Nazi Germany it was called, ” Nacht und Nebel ” [ Night and Fog ]. Since the RCMP operates as an arm of the PMO will it be long before people disappear in the middle of the night? Now you can be held for 72 hours without being charged. Just like with Hitler Canadians voted Harper in with a little cheating on the side which was orchestrated by Preston Manning.  The right wing ideology is so restrictive and the Sociopathic behaviors so regimented and predictable  Stevie no longer surprises me. This thanks to the Harper $ media. If you want honest news, type in CBC News on Google. You will have choices. Click CBC News Canada. It will give you the headlines from all across the Country. Any interesting story can be looked into more closely at a later time. Harper want to split this Country apart. Go on the CBC and find out the truth. Canadians have not moved to the right as Preston Manning, Herr Harper, the Fraser Inst. and the subversives at the University of Oil in Calgary would have us believe.  If you and the other citizens learn what is really going on Lyin Steve won’t be able to get away with his daily fibs.  But time is running out. Soon our opinions will not matter.  One thing I find is that the Post and the Sun own between them possibly 60 papers across the Nation. Sometimes they tell one story in Vancouver and Calgary and another in Toronto. This is Harper’s central idea, driving wedges between Canadians. Make them anxious. leave then with only a few crumbs so that they are too busy scratch for food to protest the Fascist decrees. Cut back education for the young and purposely cause high youth unemployment.  Then the ranks of 25 year old will either provide a pool of cheap labour or there will be unrest. Either way Herr Harper and his small band of Fascists will win.  These moves are meant to eliminate the middle class which represents the only group that can challenge him. Steve is now impoverishing the middle class with the help of a parasitic $ media. So Nietzsche. So Nietzsche. Harper is following exactly Mein Kampf.  Advertising from Steve [ paid for by Canadian taxpayers ] in the $ media means his wishes will be followed to the letter. And Harper’s intention  is to keep Canadians ignorant. For tyrants keeping the common flock in the dark is paramount.  The Germans who lived near the gas chambers were never informed as to what was going on by the Hitler press. They didn’t ask questions either. Harper is following suit. Is ignorance your prefered state of mind??? It is interesting, I go to CBC News each morning and survey the Country. In the pm I buy the Tor. Star, Globe and Oil, National Post and Toronto Sun. These newspapers do not cover most of the impostant stories and the one’s that they do are full of false and misleading information. What I can’t figure out is why John Honderich, Phil Crawley [ and the Thompson family ], Paul Godfrey and Pierre Peladeau publish such bullshit when the truth is only a click of a mouse away. All of the above papers are going to go out of business in their present form. They are all so desperate for money that they have become little more than common whores who will say / do anything for cash even if it destroys Canada. Undermining this Country should be punishable with jail time.

*********************************************************************************************************

Reduced to its’ simplest terms the hundreds of spills of liquified crude bitumen come down to two things, lighter fluid and quartz sand.  Neither of these are found in refined oil. That is the difference and these do make a difference. The lighter fluid is used to thin the thick tar like you use varsol to thin paint. I call it lighter fluid so that you understand the nature of the DilBit thinner. It has other names, benzine, naptha or acetone. Buy a can of naptha from Canadian Tire [ fuel for Coleman camp stoves ]. Fill a small can out in the back yard with the naptha. Throw a lighted match in and it will literaly explode. The tar will burn too. If a pipe line ruptures and there is an ignition source the leaking tar slurry with make like a blow torch that can melt steel. In this case the pipe would become a sort of fuse like cord in which the fire would devour the broken pipe going both ways and fry anything in its’ path. The quartz sand hurtling along is very abrasive and akin to sand blasting. Over the years I have used sand blasters. In restoring old cars one has to be very careful not to concentrate the blast or it will put a hole in a fender or body part in a blink. You can’t use sand in a blaster to clean up an engine [ inside and out ]. At Buttonville Airport we used walnut shells in the maintenance shop. It has been calculated that the proposed Gateway project will transport 50,000 lbs [  25 tons or one dump truck ] of Quartz sand per day. It would be easy to develop a formula to show when any pipe will fail [ not if ]. In fact every pipe line that is carrying this poisonous tar slurry will fail at some stage. Either we elect representatives who look after our interests instead of EXXON’S or the bodies will pile up. Eventually the citizenry will revolt over the loss of their children being burned alive or facing a slow painful death. If this does come to pass let Harper’s 2 kids, his wife Laureen and Joe Oliver’s grandchildren go first. Just so we can watch them suffer for their deeds. Right now we should put the Harper, Joe Oliver, Russ Girling, Pat Daniel, Al Monaco, Richard Kinder and Rex Tillersons behind bars. The French Revolution of 1789 erupted because of 3 years of crop failures. The price of bread skyrocketed while the King and the Nobles had granaries full of wheat. When the children of the peasants began to die of starvation the fuse was lit. When sufficient children are stricken by poisonous fumes from DilBit spills the fuse will again be lit. We should make a correction now.  Elect responsible Governments in the US and Canada. But it may be too late for the Americans.   At Kalamazoo [ Enbridge ]  a longitudinal weld failed. The quartz sand weakened the joint. My guess would be that it was poorly welded and the sand took it out quickly. Of course with friction of the sand on the steel it gets hot. Normal oil pipe lines run about 70 deg F. An oil pipe carrying DilBit runs at 150 deg F [ too hot to put your hand on ]. This heat boild the tar slurry and the lighter fluid gases off into bubbles.  Bubbles in a pipe line act like air bubbles in a cottage water system. You lose prime because a water pump can’t suck air. So too transporting liquified crude bitumen. If gas bubbles occur in an oil pipe line it is not a matter sucking the liquid but pumping it. With a rupture in a pipe as in Kalamazoo there was a pressure drop. Operators deal with this as with all bubble incidents, they increase the pressure by speeding up the pumps.  Oh something else about about the quartz sand. It destroys the oil sensors so that the pipe line control office is flying blind. When a spill occured the Enbridge controllers who obviously work for minimum wage began pumping even more DilBit. Only when someone local sees his son’s backyard play fort surrounded by hot tar will Enbridge / Exxon get a call. All the promises by the pipe line companies [ Russ Girling, Pat Daniel, Al Monaco and Richard Kinder / all liars ] that the can monitor the health of any pipe line is pure poppycock. They don’t have a clue, never have never will. In many cases a spill is made much worse because the pumps keep running or are even run harder. The US oil cartel and the pipe lines started transporting liquified crude bitumen behind everyone’s backs about 8 years ago. Spills spiked, Daaaaaaaaaa. It has now become a big business. Many of the operators in the tar sands also own upgraders / refineries in the US. They are the one’s now weeping about getting low prices because of the oil glut in the States. It is a bullshit story repeated by our petro $ media. Their refineries get Alberta’s cheap tar, then refine it, thus making huge profits down in the States. Analysts in Chicago particulary brag about the oilies having a 28% return. Are we ever patsies. More than $ 100 billion was made by the cartel Stateside in 2010. Right off the backs of Albertans. And their petro media says zip.  All the while putting everyone along the pipe line system at risk. Now the oilies and the pipies are too far into the DilBit system. There is too much money at stake. They can’t admit to ruining the health of the people along the pipes line, they can’t tell the truth about the 18 deaths i Kalamazoo and can’t back out of the mess they find themselves in. Rex Tillerson, Girling, Kinder and Monaco et all have to keep the lies coming. And they have to pay the petro $ media big money to keep the lies afloat. So everyone connected with the tar sands is in on the lying and they can’t get off the merry-go-round. The lies become more preposterous with each passing day. The transporting of DilBit will stop when Canadians have had enough. Maybe we as a people we are so passive that nothing will get us off our asses? My guess is that  if  conditions remain as they are to-day and the pipes full of poison gas continue to operate a town or major part of a city will get asphyxiated and fried. And there will be loss of life. Then the politicians, the US cartel and the pipe line companies will be shocked and surprised. and promise never to do it again. And if my guess is right Rex Tillerson will be able to record his Companies activities by marking the deaths of children on the wall of the EXXON Towers. 

*********************************************************************************************************

Our own Joe Oiliver, a man who knows nothing about the tar sands and puts his foot in his mouth everytime he opens it. His Ministry is involved with a project to study benzene. Health Canada and the National Research Council are working with his Natural Resources to get a handle on benzene [ lighter fluid ] poisoning. In particular the team is looking at solvents stored in attached garages. There are millions of homes across the Country with adjacent garages. Of concern is the fact that solvents can leak into a house and affect the health of families, especially the young and particularly babies. A Ms. Debby Schoen is the contact person at Health Canada. A 1940s report by the American Petroleum Institute said, ” the only absolutely safe concentration of benzene is zero “. Benzene is a trigger for leukemia and other cancers. In the 1990s [ before Herr Harper ]  laws were passed to limit the amount of benzene in gasoline. And yet our friend Joe Oliver allows hundreds of pipes lines carrying liquified crude bitument mixed with benzene to criss cross the west every day endangering tens of thousands of Canadians. And Joe doesn’t give shit. Oliver plough on like a thick headed  ox oblivious to the dangers he is inleashing on our citizenry. Wasting money studying benzene storage in attatched garages when a far larger crisis awaits unless the transportation of liquified crude bitument is banned immediately.

********************************************************************************************************

So what do we do now???  I think the Kalamazoo DilBit spill gives us a window on what is happening with the wholesale transportation of liquified crude bitumen which is being done out of sight. In Kalamazoo many people were made sick by the poison gas but they have disappeared. The petro $ media is ignoring them and being paid to do so. About 150 homes have been abandon and probably will never be lived in again. Again the media has done no investigations. There is more money for them not doing anything than pursuing the truth. Enbridge took over the site, barred reporters and Pat Daniel responded with endless lies. The cost of cleanup has reached $ 1.5 billion and there is more to be done. Enbridge quickly benched Daniel to change the channel and brought in a new liar Al Monaco. Now Enbridge is trying to duck any further expenses. So there is a pattern. Now with the EXXON DilBit spill in Mayflower Arka. we see the same scenario emerging. Sick people have been driven from about 25 homes in a subdivision that will never be lived in again. Rex Tillerson’s people have taken over control from the EPA [ apparently a timid bunch ]  mainly because EXXON owns the Republicans in Congress. EXXON has taken over the local police and now the Company controls the skies because the FAA has turned chickenshit. Both in the Kalamazoo [ Enbridge ] spill and the one at Mayflower [ EXXON ]  what matters is the plight of the poison victims, their property and the environment. Rather, both Companies are bent on covering up and paying as little as possible for restitution. And helping the cartel all along the way is the petro $ media, Globe and Oil and the National American Post etc get cash from the oilies for your eyeballs. This big cash comes from fooling those eye balls of your’s.

I do not know about the governmental sysytem in the US so my recommendations are strictly for Canada. We have a 3 tier system here, Federal, Provincial and municipal [ which can include cities, town and rural areas ]. I was a Pickering Councillor in the Township east of Toronto. T O had 2 million people at that time, we had 28,000. In the Kalamazoo spill everybody was caught by surprise by the tar slurry and the poisonous gas cloud that escaped. All of the first responders thought that they were facing a regular oil spill and came fully equipped.  But the tar that spilled congealed on land and  went hard like an asphalt road. When the tar entered the water, it sank and hardened on the bottom. In the fast running stream the blobs of tar were picked up and they travelled under water for miles. Putting booms on the surface was useless, that’s for real oil. The other problem was the cloud toxic gas [ benzene vapours ]. It travelled 50 miles.  The responders were not equipped with breathing masks and Hazmat safety suits. The reson for this confusion was that Pat Daniel, CEO, Enbridge, continually lied about the contents of his pipe line. The Government people on the site were patsies for Enbridge. After the investigation was completed by the Safety Board [ 2 years later ]  we learned all of the sad details. Enbridge and Daniels were able to quash that report and make it go away by using a large amounts cash. Bribes to the petro $ media to stay mum. The Globe and the Post did very well.  And you know what they did stay mum. At the EXXON spill in Mayflower, surprise, surprise it happened the same way again. The whole crisis in Arka. was again a surprise as if nothing had been learned from Kalamazoo [ nothing was learned by the oilies and pipies ] [ they don't want to learn ] [ to learn would mean admitting the mistake of transporting raw tar ]. The first reponders were again not properly equipped. No politicians showed up in Mayflower. Not one of them wanted to face Rex, the man who signs their cheques. Nobody wants to mess with a Government sanctioned monopoly with that much money. EXXON AND THE US OIL CARTEL ARE A LAW UNTO THEMSELVES. I think Tillerson will shortly be able to challenge god. I am betting he won’t make it. People will surely storm EXXON Towers before then?  Hydrogen is going to be the US oil cartel’s downfall.   Ottawa is not going to deal with pipe line spills of DilBit and clouds of benzene and make any move to protect the citizenry, we will have to find another avenue.

The $ media coverage of the Boston bombing should be noted. It was and is massive. Sometimes a half a dozen journalists at a single paper are on this story. To their contributions are added continous editorials and Letters-to-the-Editor. Like as in massive. About 175 were injured and 4 innocent people died in the bombing. In the Enbridge liquified crude bitumen spill in Kalamazoo Mich. 550 residents were affected by the cloud of poisonous gas. More than 50% were found to be seriously affected. After 2 years 173 people are still under Doctor’s. 18 people have died. And you know what? The petro $ media has had absolutely nothing to say about this tragedy. Nada. Even though the Transportation Safety Board went up one side of Pat Daniel [ CEO of Enbridge at the time ] and down the other the company bought up the $ media and closed the story down. I wonder how much John Honderich, Phil Crawley and the Thompson family, Paul Godfrey and Pierre Peladeau got from Enbridge to deep six Kalamazoo. At the time of the release of the Safety Board report Enbridge sneakily replaced Daniel with another consumate liar, Al Monaco and our Pat just vanished. Remember, on Daniel’s watch [ 2000 to 2010 ] Enbridge had 800 DilBit spills, most of them went unreported by the petro 4 media. One of my favourite expressions is, ” going forward “. It was invented by Wall St. in 2009 just after they had completed the rape of the USA. The sharks said, we’ve got all your money now, let’s not dwell on the past, let’s just go forward. Hayek’s theories had backfired yet again [ 2008 /2009 ] but like true Sociopaths the Streeters never admitted to making mistakes, they salted away their wads of cash offshore, blamed everyone else within earshot and went right back to doing the same dumb right wing things all over again [ like trying to screw us again ]. Right leaners ever making a MISTAKE, HELL NO. Laissez-faire government  [ let business do as it wishes ] was pushed by Coolidge as far back as 1923 t0 1929. It didn’t work then and it isn’t working now for Harper. The Great Depression happened on Calvin’s watch. Coolidge also allowed the US oil companies to form a monopoly on his watch. An arrangement which is still in force to-day and has cost Americans trillions. This illegal cartel bedevils Canada to this very moment. Pierre Trudeau tried to wrestle control of the industry from the US oil cartel with his NEP in 1980. But the cartel controlled press in Alberta was able to create a myth about Ottawa stealing the Province’s oil / gas resources. Too many Albertans  fell for this story, hook, line and sinker. The Province willingly assumed to position of servitude and has allowed the cartel to take home possibly $ 50 billion over the past few years while giving back maybe 8%. Some arrangement. But an arrangement Herr Harper and Danielle Smith support in return for oilie cash. As with so many master / servant deals eventually the hired help is no longer needed and gets tossed out. Over time we have seen servant types so brainwashed that they can’t think for themselves. Even though abused they can’t break free.  Alberta finds itself in that position in 2013, unloved and expendable. Things would have been different if the NEP was in force this day. Sadly it is not and the surprising thing is that some, many, most Albertans still believe the cartel story. In fact that storyline is being reserected to demonize Premier Redford’s NES. This free trade energy deal among Canadian Provinces is the only hope  Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have to avoid the bad old days of cash shortages. It will be interesting to see just how long Westerners cling to the past and put their faith in the US oil cartel. I would suggest that they look at what has happened in other parts of the world when the US oil cartel pulled up stakes. Impoverished ghost towns. An abandon Calgary with silent towers. And Fort McMurray, a town full of derelict houses and desperate people.  The question is how do indentured servants become self reliant entrepreneurs? Therein lies the salvation of the West. In terms of the tar slurry spill in Kalamazoo that tale has been locked away in the attic by the media. But the truth is alive and well on the net. In a final gesture, to bully the 550 home owners which Enbridge is trying to buy at fire sale prices the Company has hired armed, private security people to patrol in the areas where owners are holding out. It is a form of intimidation. I find this, ” let business do as it wishes in the USA “, instructive. Enbridge want to pump liquified crude bitumen across Ontario and Quebec to the Atlantic shore in order to supply the refineries in Port Arthur Texas with cheap Alberta tar. In fact Enbridge pipe line No. 9 runs right along the north side of Finch Ave [ Hydro right-of-way ] across the entire City of Toronto. Can you imagine a DilBit spill at Bathurst St. and Finch Ave. There is no lake so the black tar would just cover the ground as far as the eye could see in all directions. Surrounding this pipe line are thousands of people in single family dwellings and high rise condos. With such a spill it release of a cloud of poisonous gas which can severly injure or kill in minutes depending on the benzene concentration. You can go on the net and look at the Kinder Morgan DilBit spill at Vancouver [ 2007 video / The Tyee - Vancouver's DilBit Dilemma ] where a column of liquid tar sprayed a subdivision for 45 minutes then it ran into the Burrard Inlet. 5 years later and Kinder Morgan has not cleaned up the mess completely. This story was not carried by the petro $ media. Access the net to look at the Enbridge Kalamazoo DilBit spill, the EXXON DilBit spill in Mayflower Ark and the recent oil barge fire on the Alabama coast. These stories were one day wonders then disappeared from the media. Squint a little and imagine this happening at Finch and Bathurst [ flowing tar slurry, a cloud of poisonous gas and then explosions as the benzene and tar burned ]. We are being led into this valley of death by everyone promoting [ and they number in the hundreds, just look around you ] Alberta liquified crude bitumen from the tar sands. Millions of dollars are being spread around by the US oil cartel in the name of profit, Canadians be damned. What Herr Harper, Joe Oiliver and Peter Kent are now doing is hurting Alberta and the west, Canadians and the planet. The only winners are the oil cartel and the pipe lines. So when DilBit starts flowing through a pipe along Finch who will you turn to for comfort and help if needed???   Harper *** no. Oiliver *** no. Kent *** no. National Energy Board *** no. Environment Canada *** no. Alberta Environmantal Board *** np. Kathleen Wynne *** no. Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli *** no.  So who???  Nobody in government or those connected with the oil business or those in the petro $ media can admit to the huge risk there is mto the public transporting DilBit. If the potential for a disaster in say Toronto is acknowledged then the tar sands story comes to an end. Shipping DilBit will be prohibited. Right now the US cartel and the pipe lines are in the game until the bodies begin to pile up. Such info will not be made available in the $ media. For the mounting toll you will have access the internet.  For Harper it is better to let a hundred or so residents of Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet suffer ill health and loss of property than prepare the Canadians for a DilBit catastrophe like a fire drill on a ship or in a school or in an arena??? According to Lyin Steve if Enbridge pipe No. 9 is converted to dilBit and blows you and your family are on your own. Tough shit, nobody promised you a rose garden Harper would say. As you know I am not the type to walk meekly to the cattle cars. In a Country now owned by the US oil cartel it is time to take back our Nation. This is what we do.

*********************************************************************************************************

All across Canada are municipalities through which TransNotCanada, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipes go. Every one of them is capable of carrying liquified crude bitumen. You must assume EACH pipe IS carrying DilBit. The above Companies and their executive lie continually. So it is a must that you prepare yourself for a spill and possible explosion. But leadership is required.  Each municipality must develop a Emergency Measures Plan to deal with the toxic tar slurry, the poison gas cloud and a possible raging inferno [ the tar lighter fluid only needs an ignition source to cause an exposion and fire]. The Enbridge OIL PIPE LINE No. 9 [ not built to take liquified crude bitument ] runs across Ontario from Sarnia to Montreal in parallel with hi tension electric lines. No. 9 has been around for about 40 years doing what it supposed to do, transport OIL. Enbridge is pulling a switcheroonie on us and is planning to move DilBit from Fort McMurray to Portland Maine USA. Of interest to Ontarians is the fact that if No. 9 carries DilBit it will endanger Sarnia, London, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, Toronto, Oshawa, Port Hope, Belleville, Kingston and all of the communities in between. As well as along the north shore of the St. Lawrence. The major rivers at risk are the Thames, Grand, Humber, Don, Trent and the Ganaraska and the like.  Mind you Enbridge has applied to the toothless National Energy Board for permission to transport upgraded oil to the Suncor refinery in Montreal. An out and out lie. Al Monaco of Enbridge is aiming to ship DilBit behind our backs. This kind of sneaky corporate behaviour is unacceptable in Canada. And couldn’t happen if the media was doing it job.  Of course the Globe and Post [ both papers are paid to write nice stuff about Monaco or Enbridge and never mention DilBit. Imagine having the nerve to submit a bogus plan to a Goverment agency. Harper and Oiliver already know about the DilBit angle and I would guess a secret agreement has already been struck with the oilies and pipies. Thus Herr Harper, the US oil cartel and the pipe line companies have set us a trap. Regulations on the surface will be followed publicly according to the $ media but in real terms ignored by all involved. We can be sure Harper and his Fascists will never put a stop to the shipment of toxic tar slurry even if it endangers thousands. So we must respond by taking measures to protect our communities and stock up on things like sand bags just in case. and plan escape routes. Since I have listed just some of the communities that will be at risk No.9 is clearly an Ontario problem. Therefore it requires leadership at Queen’s Park. At this time neither Kathleen Wynne nor Tim ” Mike Lite ”  Hudak are leading. In fact Hudak is poisoning the atmosphere in the legislature [ remember I am a PC and Tim is a Fascist ]. The two of them probably don’t know what political leadership is all about. Kath and Tim have always been followers.  Both the Libs and PCs are run by party machines which are not remotely connected to a democratic system. They are both connected to the corporations. In fact Hudak’s wife works for Russ Girling, CEO of TransNotCanada. How’s that for playing on the two ends?  That is why the Province is in such a mess financially. 15 years of Mike Harris and devious Dalt McGuinty is just about enough. The nukies have ruined Ontario’s economy. The NDP is the only party that will eliminate nuclear. If  Wynne or Hudak wins I suggest you take out your bank book, check the amount, write a cheque to the Government for same and go to your basemsnt apartment and jump out the window. Your call? More pain or increased prosperity, again your call?  I have listed in previous posts the initiatives we must take to solve, traffic gridlock , public transit, fix our broken electrical system [ first move, cut KW prices in half immediately ] and a dysfunctional City Council [ Mike Harris' doing ] are the most important. To that list we can add the threat of DilBit flowing through Enbridge No. 9 across the Province. It would seem that Enbridge has already got the nod from Queen’s Park. Is that why you vote for your MPP? So he or she can quickly accomodate the energy corporations?  I want a Select Committee struck at Queen’s Park to develop an emergency Measures Plan. Since Enbridge has already announced the construction of an upgraded line along the hydro right-of-way that runs e / w north of Finch Ave. it is clear the Liberal party machine is on board. That right-of-way is owned by Ontarians not the Liberals. The only way this kind of shady deal could go on behind your backs is the petrol $ media is paid to censor the news. So why don’t we specifically consider the stretch of pipe line along Finch between Dufferin and Bathurst. The pipes used are made from flat steel sheets and rolled into tubes. From pictures of the spills and Kalamazoo / Mayflower the pipes are apparently butt welded [ the weakest welded joint possible ]. I am a welder. The strength of such welds is dependent on the temperature and the wind conditions. If a weld cools too quickly it becomes embrittled, just like glass. Driving crude oil through such a pipe at low pressure and at low temp [ 70 F ] presents no problem. Most real oil pipe line spills are caused by natural events such as heaving frost. When liqified crude bitumen goes through the same pipe it is trouble in River City. DilBit is pumped at a higher pressure and a much higher temp [ 150 F ]. If the longitudinal welds are embrittled and poorly done [ bumpy ] the quartz sand in the DilBit will create even greater friction and heat caused by abrasion. I wonder how many other spills on Enbridge pipe lines [ 800 in 10 years ] were caused by the failure of longitudinal butt welds. Back when Kalamazoo happened I suggested that the Government set me up in a small workshop where the damaged pipes could be inspected. In less than a week I would be able to determine the cause. I heard nothing.  If Enbridge No. 9 blows north of Finch here is what could happen.

The hot liquid tar would flow out in all direction and may shoot into the air as in Vancouver [ Kinder Morgan ]. Under such condition everything within range will be coated then the tar will cool. Everything will be killed by the tar’s toxic elements [ plants / grass / trees ].  If there are low spots, water, streams and sewers the tar will fill them up and solidify. This is bad news for road sewers [ each has a catch basin like the trap under your sink ]. If the catch basin fills with tar it will require digging up the road to replace it. If the tar overtops the catch basin it will flow into the sewer itself and harden. Then the whole sewer system would have to be dug up and replaced. Between Dufferin and Bathurst this might be the scene. The mini lake in G. Ross Lord Park would fill up with toxic tar which flows like lava. The Park would be destroyed. Westminster and Beth Tzedec cemetaries would be obliterated. The tar would be much like the asphalt on our roads, not easy to remove. Northview Heights Sec. School would have to be abandoned. Likewise, Tor. Fire Station 112 would have to be surrendered to the tar. We would lose Maon Noan Synagogue and H. H. Carnegie Community Centre. All the homes around Henry Welsh Dr., Torresdale, Dollery Crt., Ailsa Craig Crt., Virgilwood Dr. would be rendered uninhabitable. Likewise all of the 25 story condos on Torresdale and Antibes Dr. The condos would be filled with the toxic smell coming up from the sewers and would be life threatening. Toronto people, Enbridge hasn’t told you any of this yet and probably never will? Wynne hasn’t told you that by going along with Enbridge she is putting thousands of Torononians at risk if not their lives at risk. When the cloud of poisonous benzene gas is released the critical factor would be the wind direction. We are in a north westerly wind area 75% of the time. If the wind was from the north west the North York General Hospital would be enveloped with poisonous gas. If the wind was blowing from the south east York University would have to be evacuated immediately. How could these evacuations take place in the present circumstances. Most residents, the police, Fire Department and City / Provincial Governments don’t even know the pipe line is there. Carrying oil like the pipe is now is no threat. Put liquified crude bitument in that old pipe and the fuse starts ticking.  Al Monaco of Enbridge has no concern for your life or the safety of your parents and or children. Al is employed by Wall St. which doesn’t give a shit about you and your family. Queen’s Park should give shit about you but doesn’t. The Star, Globe, Post, Sun and CTV should give a shit about you, their customers but they don’t. Oil money sweeps all before it. I believe we could get 55 MPPs in the Assembly to vote for a Standing Committee to prepare a  No. 9 Emergency Measure’s plan for the Province. I think we could count on Andrea Horwath. I think we could gather up some Liberal MPPs who would break with their machine to put you first. I am a PC and would bet we could poach some of Hudak’s MPPs to look after your interests instead of the pipe line companies. Toronto and all the other municipalities from Sarnia to the Ottawa River have Master Plans. Each of them knows exactly where No. 9 goes. So the emergency measures developed by the Legislature would apply all across the Province. If Enbridge and TransNotCanada with the help of the Libs / PCs and the petrol $ media are going to pull a fast one on you at least WE can come together and figure out which way to run?

**********************                                                                                                                                            **********************

The basis for developing safety measures could be to US Transportation Board report on the Enbridge DilBit spill in Kalamazoo. This report was buried by the petro $ media. Al Monaco and Pat Daniel paid them to keep you in the dark. We could also look back at the Kinder Morgan DilBit spill in Vancouver and the DilBit spill in Peace River Alberta. Few if any spills in the last ten years have been covered by the press. Newspapers are paid to say nothing. Nice work if you can get it? These spills could explain to us what things can happen. Then the question is how would we in Ontario would deal with this issue. How would one deal with hot tar spraying into the air. I think it is a matter of citizens being aware that they live on a poison gas pipe line. At the first sign of a leak there should be an emergency phone number in each local. DilBit ladden with quartz sand destroys the pressure monitoring system, So where DilBit is concerned Enbridge, TransNotCanada and Kinder Morgan are flying blind. It could take hours for them to respond. A booklet should be distributed to every residence / business within 3000 feet of a pipe line containing emergency procedures. Every school, hospital, nursing home, university within the danger zone should be required to develop an evacuation plan which would have to be coordinated by Queen’s Park, local governments, hospitals, police, fire dept. and the OPP. If North York General Hosp., local schools or York University had to be evacuated how would that be done and where would the people go. In Kalamazoo 155 homes and businesses [ schools / churches ??? ] are no longer habitable. Enbridge is now trying to force the resident to sell cheap so they will be just disappeared. The media is helping in this theft . How would Enbridge compensate us for the University or Hospital. Since the politicans like McGuinty and Hudak have already be bought off who would champion our cause? In the area of such a spill all traffic and public transit would come to an end. In Mayflower the smell of the poisonous cloud could be detected down wind, 50 miles away. So each citizen within the danger zone would have to be notified. Police, the Fire Departments, hospitals, all the bus companies, Boards of Health and temporary accomodations arranged [ like to Dome ]. Rail line affected would have to be closed and this might affect GO service. Hoarding of food stuff and supplies would have to be made illegal. Drinking water and sewers might be shut. How do the authorities deal with such a situation?  But it would be far better to have a plan in place than face the nightmares of Kalamazoo, Mayflower, Vancouver and Northern Alberta. Emergency sirens would have to be installed to warn people like the do with hurricanes and the Blitz. If a siren goes off it would be a matter of people going on the net to find out the spill location, drill and access to the authorites. The elderly would need to be considered immediately. Possibly TTC buses. Electricity in a spill area would have to be shut off.  Even the smallest spark would set off a confligration, after that you would be dealing with a pipe line containing 30% benzene [ go on the net and see what this stuff can do, scar you lungs and burn like hell. How would we cope with a mile wide swath without electricity, water, sewers, enveloped in a poisonous gas cloud and painted with molten tar? ? ? ? Everyone along No. 9  would be at risk for no compensation. The only winners would be the American oil monopoly, Enbridge, Wall St. and the Star, Globe, Post and Sun. Will they print this post???

Now this is a service that Queen’s Park could provide to all of Canada. Once our Emergency Measures plan gets formalized it could be posted on the internet and every city, town and municipality across the Country could down load it. They then could customize an escape plan to suit their own environment. Since it seems nobody is in our corner WE have to ACT to protect ourselves, the young and the elderly.

**********************                                                                                                                                          **********************

My question, why would we allow ourselves to be put in such a position of danger? Just to make TransNotCanada, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan shareholders even richer??? It is clear that the reason were are facing [ all Canadians ] such a series of catastrophes is that so many of our politicians have sold out like Harper, McGuinty and Hudak. It would be  far better to just replace such elected people all across the land. Taking money to destroy our civilization should mean long jail time. Lyin Steve gets big money from the US oil cartel as does Danielle Smith of the Wild Oil Party. Publicly we see Hudak is in the US oil bag too.  And you know what, No. 9  IS NOT EVEN NEEDED. It is a pipe line that comes from the US midwest and is meant to keep Ontario and Quebec in the cartel’s pocket. I have written extensively about the Twin Beaver Pipe Line that would carry CRUDE OIL [ not Dilbit ] and NATURAL GAS from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba [ upgraded [ to SCO ] in situ ] east, across the 55th parallel, up to the deep water port in Churchill Man. and them down to Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes The Twin Beaver would be owned by the Canadian Provincial Energy Corp. wherein all of the profits made from this Green System would accrue to the people. No more giveaways to the American with their filthy habits and disregard for Canadian lives. But in view of the fact that we are now saddled with so many corrupt politicians and media types on the oilie payroll developing evacution plans may be a baby step but it will allow us to start down the path of protecting our own interests. Call you MPP and demand action. What’s better?  Raising hell at Queen’s Park or you and your family being consummed in a tower inferno while choking for breath???

**********************************************************************************************************

The American oil monopoly was arranged in the 1920s by Pres. Calvin Coolidge and his Republican Congress. Monopolies are illegal in the USA and Canada but Republican politicians stateside seem to have the ability to bend the rules when they get paid enough. The other day 11 Republican Senators were paid millions to support the Keystone XL. The pipe line of death and destruction. Canada now finds itself in the grip of the oil monopoly, much thanks to Lyin Steve. But things of late have not been going well for the monopoly. In 1975 it owned or controlled 70% of the world’s oil. It also owned three quarter of the world’s refineries. Oil is no good unless you can refine it and turn it into gasoline, diesel and jet fuel etc. Now the US monopoly own or controls less than 10% of the world’s oil and their ownership of refinery capacity is well below 50% now. You can’t make a refinery pay unless you can feed it oil, the monopoly’s job gets tougher by the day. Those in charge of the monopoly like Rex Tillerson are something akin to milk cart horses. Operating a monopoly means having no master. The monopoly can do as it wishes. Arrogance has a tendency to creep in and the powers of creative thinking diminish as with the oil monopoly. They spend hundreds of millions trying to hold back the hands of time. North America is ten year behind in developing alternative energies. The monoploy spends huge amounts to ensure new ideas that have the ability to affect the oil business get killed. They have thousands of climate deniers filling the petro $ media with lies [ Peter Foster and Bjorn Lomborg are prime examples ]. Hydrogen and electric vehicles have both been under attack in the Wheels Sections of the papers. Efforts to promote conservation are undermined by oil money. Every effort is made by the oil monopoly to keep people from using water [ hydro ], wind and solar. The oilies do not want the citizenry to have access to cheap / clean / Green energy. Any energy source that doesn’t use fuel. Steady oil monopoly cheques keep the politicians and media owners on their side. Being blockheads like Tillerson the oilies do not respond well to setbacks. They are so used to running the world they arrange things to their liking to stay in control. EXXON’s business has dropped each of the last 7 quarters but profits are up. $ 9.5 billion in the last quarter alone. What the oil monopoly does is discard weaker partners by throwing them under the bus. That is Alberta’s present fate. The monopoly as in the days of John D. Rockefeller [ 1900 ] and his Standard Oil of New Jersey just crushes the competition financially. As business shrinks the oil monopoly just puts the squeeze on captive American and Canadian consumers. But the oil monopoly doesn’t have the muscle to push a determined country around as in the case of Venezuela.  In those days [ 1999 ] the US needed Venezuelan oil and some part of the monopoly played ball, EXXON didn’t. Now the monopoly doesn’t want Canada’s oil. It just wants cheap tar, no string attached. No responsibility for clean up and no risk for DilBit spills. The oil monopoly depends on the owners of the pipe lines to bear the costs of  DilBit spills. If the oil business changes yet again the Keystone XL, Gateway and the twinning of the Kinder Morgan line could be orphans with no product to transport. The pipe line shareholders will be forced to take a bath. Iam convinced that the shipment of liquified crude bitumen will be outlawed if Canadians can stir themselves to action. At this moment in time we can break the hold of the US oil monopoly on our Country. An opportuniy like this doesn’t present itself too often. If we act with resolve we have nothing to fear from the oil monopoly milk cart horses.

*********************************************************************************************************

FOOTNOTE   —   There is a move afoot for the Province to set up a Press Review Board like the one put in place in England. Over there the concerns were phone hacking and illegal payments to the police. In Ontario the problem relates to false and misleading information, regurgitated lies and State censorship by Ottawa. Papers here manufactured news, paid for by Harper, the movers and takers as well as oil corporate propaganda. A good example is the Enbridge push to reverse the pumps on pipe line No. 9 so the Company can transport liquified crude bitumen from Alberta to a port in Maine on the Atlantic. Mind you Al Monaco, CEO of Enbridge is not telling Ontarians about his plans to ship DilBit. He says everything but and the press is well paid to tell everything but. The conversion of No. 9, the Keystone XL, the Gateway and the new Kinder Morgan pipe are all based on the fact that no customer now exists for the petroleum products from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Alberta and Saskatchewan both have tar sands and the Provinces are getting desperate for funds. The American oil monopoly needs raw tar product to keep its’ refineries in Texas and California operating at full capacity. So cheap Alta. / Sask. looks very promising. But the conditions need to be right. With these Provinces pushed up against the wall they are prepared to make a deal, any deal will do, almost giving it away. The other provisos were and are that the oil monopoly is NOT responsible for the toxic environmental mess created by the mining of bitumen and that the DilBit be transported cheaply through pipe lines meant for oil. This behind the backs of the people. This with Harper’s agreement. There is nothing actually wrong with the tar sands. Alberta was set up in the oil business by Ontarians [ like me ] in the 1950s /60s. Alberta oil was given a monopoly position in this Province and we paid more than the world price for it. In terms of the tar sands, the industry was developed by the Federal Government and supported financially by Alberta  and once again Ontario. We in this Province have contributed mightily to the welfare of Alberta but have never seen a single thank you. It is all gimee, gimee. Once the oil / tar business was established by the Governments the American monopoly moved in [ 1960s ]. They had the market, Alberta had the oil. The Yanks ponied up the money for the oil infrastructure and paid the Province a minimum royalty. All Albertans had to do was nothing but count the money. Since the the mighty USA was going to grow forever and the world oil business was very unstable [ OPEC crisis ] it was a marriage made in heaven. This arrangement in Alberta was a little like that seen [ 1933 / 1945 ] in Nazi Germany. Wherein the people traded freedom / free speech for  jobs, housing, plentiful food, unemployment insurance, health care, pensions and low taxes. Albertans thought they were sitting pretty. The OPEC embargo on oil and the Iranian Revolution were clear signs that the party could not go on forever. There is no indication that anyone in Alberta did what all smart businessmen / women do. Develop a plan B to handle an eventual downturn. The US oil  monopoly thought they could control events by the weight of their money. If someone got in their way it was a matter of the oilies buying them out or crushing such opponents. In the second oil crisis in Iran the Trudeau Government became concerned about the supply of oil in Canada. The US oil monopoly was beholden to the Congress for its’ elevated position. This arrangement ensured Americans would get first dibs on all the oil in the monopoly inventory. Everyone else [ including Canada ] would come second best. Trudeau developed his National Energy Program to make sure this Country’s oil did not all go Stateside. You would think the PM would have been applauded for this initiative. However the NEP never went into action. During the Iranian uprising [ 1979 / 80 ] the price of oil skyocketed. Go on the net and check this out. Who would have imagined that Saudi Arabia would have a panic over the possibility of the US economy tanking. If your customers starve to death who will then buy your food in the future? So the Saudis flooded the oil market. At that very moment Russia saw an opening for its’ oil output. Iran was out of the oil business so Russia stepped in and put even more oil into the world market. This sudden increased oil supply killed the price per barrel in a matter of months. The graph on the net shows the price line going almost straight down.  Nobody could have forcast the Iran dustup nor the reaction of Saudia Arabia and Russia coming into the oil market out of the blue. During this interval Trudeau was finalizing his NEP. With the world suddenly awash in cheap oil the NEP had no reason for living, it was reduntant.  Albertans and Texans among others saw their take of oil revenues drop by 80%. The US oil monopoly did not like Trudeau / Ottawa messing in it’s business being that the oilies thought their elevated station trumped Canadian sovereignity [ in the monopoly's mind that is ]. The monopoly owned and still owns the petro $ press in Alberta. The Americans concocted a story that the NEP was the cause of the sudden economic downturn. That it was a cash grab by the Feds and an effort to take control of Alberta’s resources the oilies said.  None of that was true. As far as I know not a single Albertan had the balls to stand up for Canada. I am sure some people knew the truth but they like chickenshits chose to remain silent.  This myth stuck because it must have been repeated at least 10,000 times over the years [ Goebbels would have been proud ]. The story that the Chevy VOLT in an electric car may just give the lie about the NEP a run for its’ money. For 2 1/2 years GM has paid the petro $ media to turn a sow’ ass into a silk purse. Auto writers like David Booth [ Post ], Michael Vaughan [ Globe ] and perter Gorrie [ Star ] continue to claim the VOLT is an electric car. It is legally a hybrid.  Big advertising dollars trump the truth.  Desperate times call for desperate measures from Paul Godfrey of the Post. If you have got dough Paul will print anything you want no matter how untrue. For 30 years the media has been paid to repeat the NEP myth over and over. The all time champion in this regard must be Ezra Le Rant who probably gets an oil cheque every time he speaks / writes about the NEP myth. During the NEP controversy in the 1980s, Preston Manning, Steve Harper, William Gairdner and Conrad Black were members of the Northern Foundation which was a Neo-Nazi group with Fascist ideas. These aryan pure bloods believed white were superior and that the races that made up the mob were inferior and should be allowed to perish if necessary. Harper, a Sociopathic wimp of 24 willingly joined this warrior society along with the other wimps, Preston Manning and Conrad Black. Lyin Steve, a poser if there ever was one,  found a home amongst these white supremacists. He was a balding loner who had a shadowy existence. He dropped out of the U of T after 2 months and fled west and got a job in the mailing room at Imperial Oil where his dad worked. This small group of right wing nuts was going no place until the oil monopoly stepped in. The oilies needed people who would push the NEP myth because Big Oil never gets its’ hands dirty.  They always hire shills to act on their behalf. Manning took up the NEP cause and the monoploy gave him and his group money. Preston has been getting oil money ever since. Harper got $ 50,000 to run in Calgary and he has been getting unlimited oil money ever since. How much did Harper pay Ezra le Rant to withdraw from the race in Calgary?  Lyin Steve was able to cut the election subsidies to the other parties because his personal banker is the US oil monopoly. Danielle Smith got $ 250,000 from the oilies to jump start the Wild Oil Party. The Fraser Institute [ a supposed charity ] is maintained by Canadian taxpayers but the Inst. gets a big chunk of money from the monopoly. I would guess everyone gets tax receipts?  The subversive activities at the University of Calgary are oil funded. In fact the University launders oil cash and funnels it to a number of climate deniers. Oil money funds also the climate deniers at Carleton University as well as underwriting classes to teach young Fascists all about regime change.

EXXON DILBIT SPILL IN ARKANSAS / THE BIG KEYSTONE XL SWINDLE / THE PIPE LINE OF [] DEATH [] / IT MAY BE ALL FOR NOUGHT / TOO BAD FOR YOUNG STEVIE HARPER * HE BET ON THE WRONG HORSE CALLED OIL / IT DOESN’T ALWAYS WORK OUT WHEN YOU TRY TO CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY / A CHAVEZ MIGHT JUST COME ALONG AND RUIN EVERYTHING ALONG WITH A DILBIT DERAILMENT IN MINNESOTA 20/03/13

  • I am thinking of contacting the Guinness World Book of Records. I have in mind an internet E Book on all the Oil Lies that have come our way over the past two years from the petro $ media [ US oil cartel / Keystone ]. Our official award would be , ” The Order of Deceitfulness “, and it would be handed out in the Great Hall of Shame. Here is my take. In September 2011 the Keystone XL pipe line hit the news, big time. There was a large protest in Washington and one participant caught my eye, Daryl Hannah. My Granddaughter Hollie and I saw one of Daryl’s films, ” My Favourite Martian “. We both liked it. Since that time there have been endless lies told about oil and the the big pipe by politicians [ here and Stateside ], the US oil cartel and its’ many supporters, large corporations, the right wing, Repubs and the $ media. There is a quote, some attribute to George Orwell that fits the present situation, wherein the movers and takers are herding us like lemmings towards the sea. Those on the right, who are Sociopaths and suffer from UPC have no insight. But a ton of money. They can’t see the dire consequences that will enuse  as a result of their actions to-day. The Orwell saying goes, ” in this time of universal deceit telling the truth is a truly revolutionary act “. And a costly one I might add.  If you are a journalist, you must write for the right or you will starve. No other jobs are available.  Honest authors can’t even get contracts now from publishers because the truth has gone out of fashion. We have had a flood of books lately in praise of Harper in Canada. For publishers themselves, kissing Stevie’s ass pays big dividends.  I would add a couple of things. To TELL THE TRUTH NOWDAYS IS COURAGEOUS.  TELLING LIES PAYS WAY BETTER. This separates the men from the wimps. Stand up for Canada or on the other side take a cheque with your tail between your legs. Oil has been one of my interests going way back. In the 1950s / 60s every time I filled up my tank here in Ontario I was aware that I was paying extra for my gas in order to financially support Alberta getting into the oil business. It cost Ontarians like me half a billion dollars all tolled to prop Alberta up at that time. We Easterners never got a single thank you.  Gas for my motorcycle and Piper CUB was 25 cents per gallon. Half a billion was big money and in 1981 Albertans were turned against the east by the US oil cartel over the NEP. That Province gave Ont. not a single thought as Albertans marched obediently, without a whimper to the US oil cartel drumbeat [ even to-day Albertans march to the cartel drum ]. For them it was just gimee, gimee, gimme. Apparently still is.  Quebec was not forced into this monopoly arrangement by Ottawa for obvious reasons. Quebec at times, throughout the History of Canada has gotten the kid glove treatment and I am comfortable with that. If one understands the history of this Country we are richer for having Quebec, as a founding people inside the tent. Being generous at times is a small price to pay for national unity. I feel the same way about Alberta. In the 1950s / 60s Ontarians was paying a lot of money to support Alberta. When Saudi Arabia and Russia flooded the market with oil to combat the effects of the Iranian revolution [ 1979 ], the price per barrel plummeted. Alberta’s take depended on the smallest of oil / nat. gas royalties in the world and they took a huge financial hit. The US oil cartel mounted a massive campaign in the Western petro $ media to blame Trudeau’s NEP for the shortfall. It was NOT TRUE. But when has the truth ever been part of the cartel business model?  Just look at the tens of millions now being spent by the cartel to bury the truth, ably assisted by the $ media. The US cartel maintained its’ high level of profitability all during the 1980s. During which time it screwed its’ partners  Alberta and Texas among others. Yes, the Lone Star State suffered the exact same economic hit as Alberta so I guess Trudeau was far more powerful than we ever thought. Can you imagine, the NEP ruined the economy in Texas too. Wow. I’ll bet Ezra Le Rant doesn’t know that or he would be ranting even  louder. The cartel turned  Pierre’s name into a dirty word while the Americans emptied the safe. If we had all the money that has been spent on the $ media [ including le Rant's mindless rants ] by the cartel assailing  Trudeau we’d have been able to clean up the 175 or so toxic, tailing ponds in Alberta. Mind, that would create another problem. Joe Oliver wouldn’t be able to find a drink.  Two right wing expressions fit here, ” those with the money make the rules “. Sounds like Rex Tillerson /Conrad Black ?  And another favourite of the sociopaths on the right , ” if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying “. EXXON to a T. The 2011 election was stolen for Lyin Steve by the Republicans and oil monety.  Tens of millions has been spent by the cartel with the $ media pinning the blame for the financial chaos in Alberta in the early 1980s on Trudeau. As expected the Harper and his assembly of boy Fascists believe this myth to be gospel. And thus they repeat it over and over like saying the rosaries. This to show their loyalty to their Fuhrer Steve.  It is interesting now that Preem Redford is getting the same treatment from the US oil cartel as Trudeau did back then. In fact Reford and Chavez seem to be neck and neck in the devil of the day sweepstakes in the Harper press. She is being blamed for the downturn of royalties as the US finds internal suppliers of oil and nat. gas due to fracking. The disappearance of the American market for Alberta oil / nat. gas [ as well as  Saskatchewan / Manitoba ] has been looming for more than two years but the petro $ media was  instructed by the US cartel not to tell the true story to Albertans for a couple of reasons. In totalitarian regimes the population is always kept ignorant of happenings. That suited Harper coming up to the 2011 election.  In addition the stockholders involved in the tar sands  had to be kept in the dark as well. [ by the way, legally what is being mined in the tarsands is crude bitumen not oil ]. The use of the words oil sands is merely a marketing ploy like selling rotten fruit  and calling it fresh fruit . The Globe and Oil has been big on misleading investors about Alberta, for this Phil Crawley and the Thompsons have been generously paid. It would be interesting to see how much the Publisher and the owners of the Globe got to sell this Country out. Could the Thomsons have an offshore account in the Cook Islands too. If we totalled up all the bribes taken to sell this Nation out, then we would know its’ true value. The well heeled cartel and big investors have been taking us little guys / gals [ Lady Black's term ] to the woodshed for 30 years.  Nowdays in the $ media we are beginning to see the real story of the crash in the tar sands and just how bad the oil business really is there. The confidence of Albertans has dropped by 10% in the last month. They are staring ruin in the face but the petro $ media sees nothing.  But there has been enough time for the insiders to cash in their chips, unload worthless stocks and bugger off leaving the toxic waste..  Danielle Smith and the Wild Oil Party have played a big role in this subterfuge. Smith is on the cartel payroll as is Harper.  The regular holders of oil stocks have been left hanging by their thumbs. Why would they now invest in the Keystone XL or the Gateway? Too, too stupid perhaps? The $ media was deeply involved in hiding the true facts from these shareholders and Albertans / Canadians as well. As said, this is especially true of the Globe and Oil. Where for a cool $ 1/4 million Crawley will put an experienced journalist at the disposal of an advertiser to write corporate friendly news masquerading as real news. It is called newsadverts. The news is actually covered but it is spun in favour of the advertiser who pays the shot. The Globe will make every nasty bit disappear in return for cash. Crawley has got an UN campaign going on the net wherein people pay money to read false and misleading info. Another group of nincompoops. The Globe’s copy is UNhonest. The Tompsons who own the Globe are UNaware of the damage they are doing to Canada in exchange for money. And the 80,000 people who pay for this Globe UNinformed claptrap end up being UNintelligent. Why doesn’t Crawley just list all of his advertiser’s web sites on the net. Dumb Canadians can go there to get their daily dose of blarney. This would give Globe reader easy access to Harper’ La La Land.  For TransNotCanada / Keystone XL  to be able to brainwash a lot of Canadians into supporting the Keystone fraud at 1/4 million a pop spent with the Globe is a reasonable investment in a $ 7.5 billion scheme. Now the keystone [ the pipe line of death ] will be built using limited partnerships to protect the Wall Streeters. If one Tim’s has trouble the whole chain is not at risk. Every 50 miles of pipe or so will franchised out to stupid investors. A single section will run as a separate entity but Russ  Girling  / TNC will have ultimate control. Thus they will be able to create lots of mischief, syphon off lots of money but bear NO RESPONSIBILITIES FOR SCREWUPS.  The cost of insuring the pipe for a possible spill will be pegged at the minimum. Since the pipe will carry tar slurry [ a dangerous mineral / crude bitumen] mixed with lighter fluid it is not classed as oil [ no tax ] but insured as oil [ cheaper than insuring minerals ]. It is a matter of playing both sides of the street. Thus Girling / TNC will screw the general population [ both sides of the border ] out of taxes and screw the insurance companies too by having them cover what is supposed to be the more benign liquid [ oil ]. While the insurers are really responsible for crude bitumen which causes spills at 4 times the rate of synthetic crude oil and is impossible to clean up.  It is magical, now you see it, now you don’t. It is confusing but the Repub Congress made up these rules to facilitate the oil cartel not Americans. This kind of thing could not be pulled off without a dedicated petro $ media like the Globe and Oil.  Thus Girling / Wall St. are putting everyone within shooting distance of Keystone at risk. For one reason and one reason alone, pure greed.  Russ is telling  nothing but lies. At present Girling has as much power as God. Billions of dollars renders him untouchable. The transportation of crude bitumen increases the chance of a spill by 4 times and a tar spill costs 10 times more to clean up. Enbridge had more than 800 spills of DilBit from 2000 to 2010. Most of those spills and the havoc they created to the lives of the little people and their property never made it into the headlines. The Globe got big money to do nothing.  With a spill, once the insurance is used up the cost of a clean up has to be borne by local residents, Province / State and Ottawa or Washington. At Kalamazoo, the cost of the cleanup has gone beyond the insurance. The actual cost of the Kal. spill to the Government is being borne by the average American taxpayer. This arrangement was cooked up between the US oil cartel and the Republicans in Washington.  But that”s okay because the Congress did well, they were paid off by the cartel.  Pumping tar slurry through steel pipes is not taxable because it a mineral. Therefore Gov. agencies get no money to offset the cost of cleanups. See, when the Repubs pay bribes to the politicians and the $ media there is no limit to what they can do for the oilie payee and to what extent they will screw the little people [ that is what Lady Black calls us ].  If a particular section of the Keystone were to rupture Girling / TNC could walk away from it, leaving the limited partners on the hook with their investment wiped out. The dice are loaded but good. If the Keystone XL is ever built and there is a spill which effects that giant aquifer in Nebraska like you see at Mayflower Arka. [ pics on the net ] then Governor Heineman better have prearranged tickets to fly him and his family out of the State to some Pacific island hide away. His life wouldn’t be worth a plug nickel. Everyone in the USA now has a gun and the people who pick public pockets might get pumped full of lead. Especially Governors who destroy people’s livelyhoods, poison the air and the environment. In the USA what will come out of Canada’s tar sands via the Keystone XL  is called oil by the $ media [ it is not ].  This crude bitumen will supposedly give Americans energy security [ nope ].  Not a single gallon of gas from Port Arthur in Texas or San Francisco Calif. will make it into US drivers tanks [ anyone saying that is a liar ].  Alberta Crude Bitument could be pumped to Texas and this pipe will apparently create tens of thousands of jobs according to Joe Oliver, he’s the Minister of Lying in Herr Harper’s Cabinet. Others have exaggerated the number even more, take your pick, 20,000 jobs, 50,000 jobs, 100,000 jobs, 200,000 jobs or how about 400,000 jobs. The petrol $ media has printed them all without question.  According to Russ Girling, CEO, TransNotCanada, who appeared before Congress, the very real  job count was 4000, four years ago, most of them temporary.  That is ON THE CONGREESIONAL RECORD.  This jobs scam and all the other ridiculous  estimates have been published / broadcast by the $ media without any scrutiny whatsoever. With friends like these we don’t need enemies?  If you have the dough you can say anything you want now and the media will print it or put it over the air. Research has shown the the older / rich still read newspapers but they are dying out. Thus the media is dying too [ in ten years their advertising dollar take has dropped 50% ]. Daaaaaaa, how dumb can they be? Shooting bullets into their own brains [ doubtful if they have any ]?  The Fascists in the US and Canada are destroying the middle class, such that they and as well as the poor can’t afford newspapers. The young [ the number grows daily, many without work ] get their news off the net. Advertisers, who cater to the shrinking middle class, the poor and the young are abandoning the papers in favour of the net and the like. Thus we are watching the traditional $ media shrink but they are still collecting a lot of money for papers from a smaller number of readers. Prices for papers keeps going up while content disappears. What does the media think we are, stupid?  Sadly, they are partly right. This fact means that the media focus becomes ever narrower as they cater to the needs of the rich exclusively and ignoring the broader public. The content of papers used to be 47% pure news. That is down to 33% and much of that is newsadverts. Sanitized news for and paid for by Harper and the oil cartel are examples. This is a terrible time of media deceit,  because, because because telling lies pays much  better. Hard to believe, right?  Paid, for doing nothing. And we supply that money when we buy newspapers, magazines and watch TV. They withhold important information.  The advertisers who want us as customers are also the one’s who pay the $ media to influence public opinion in their favour by telling us their lies. In the last few days England has created a National Press Council to rein in the media there. No more hacking, no more lies, no more paying off police, no more playing footsie with the politicians and big business. Readers can complain and the UK Council can bring down the hammer. The press  there brought this on themselves. Instead of policing self they operated unrestrained. It was inevitable that at some stage the newspapers would go too far there and hit a brick wall. And they did. If you touch a ring on the stove too many times, eventually you’ll suffer a burn. Tough luck English press. Like big boys, suck it up. Mommy isn’t there to save you. The new UK Press Council will be like our CRTC, backed by laws with teeth. Our newspapers here have been railing against the new Brit Council. You know the dodge. Freedom of the press is all important the Star, Globe, Sun and Post say. Ya, right. Freedom of the press to sell out to the highest bidder is what they practise. Our resident light weight, John Honderich as per usual is a hypocrite. The Star, he says, ”  belongs to the Ontario Press Council which upholds high standards of accountability and accuracy “. My ass. For at least 8 years I have been sparring with the Star [ John Spears ] over false and misleading information, omissions and lies about nuclear power in Ontario. John should be aware that I have all such articles in my files. The Star has shielded the nukies and McGuinty for years and been paid off using ratepayer’s / taxpayer’s money to tell lies. The OPC has its’ code of conduct on the net. It is a laugh, the Star has just ignored this code. I could fill a whole blog with Honderich’s lies. I complained by letter to the OPC and  got no meaningful response. I also complained to Advertising Standards Canada about the lies in the nukie ads carried by the Star. But to no avail. Both OPC and ASC are fronts, paid for by industry to defect complains, not to deal with them. Ontarians have seen their economy ruined as a result of the OPC and ASC failing to do their promised duty.  Honderich got an award from the business mover and takers as an honoured citizen [ he is actually a propagandist for the nukies ]. These business leaders do hold true to their course of cheating, lying and stealing. In addition to lies about nuclear the Star carries pictures of the Pickering Nuclear Plant which have been photoshopped by Tom Mitchell. We pay this guy $ 1.7 million to shower us with doctored pictures. What?  Are we crazy?  Yup? They show families playing on the beach and swimming right in front of the plant. As well there are sailboats [ these pics are in my file ]. The only problem is that there is no beach in front of the plant and where the boats are is the intake to the turbines. The Star got paid a lot of your money by Mitchell to fool the owners of Pickering, us. Honderich is one of those in the $ media who helped McGuinty and his nukie friends destroy Ontario’s economy. Now the same nukie gang has destroyed our electrical system. Can Ontario, declaring bankruptcy be far behind??? I’d look up your pitchfork if I were you. Jailing some of these thieves, including McGuinty is our only option.

If you remember your history you remember that Hitler and his inner circle were all wimps. They all suffered from   Undeveloped Prefrontal Cortices [ UPC ]. This means they lacked the part of the brain which is the connection to any  society [ the societal nodule ]. One of the main characteristics of a UPC sufferer is they are unable to empathize with their fellow human beings. They are unable to understand that their actions bring pain to others. They are loners who don’t like working with others. Hitler sent those he didn’t like to the death camps. Harper is taking UI away from workers who are forced to pay into the fund but then on his own whim they are being denied benefits. This while Lyin Steve gives the US oil cartel $ 850 million for carbon capture [ a complete boondoggle ] and stacks the Senate with hacks. Mike Harris did the same thing, attacking those on welfare who could not defend themselves. Harris had 6 powerful men on Bay St. funding his operation in 1995. Who do you think Mike looked after?  I did not find out about this until well after I had abandon my Ont. PC Party. I quit  because it had been seized by the Canadian Fascists backed by the American right. Much as they did with my national PC Party. ENRON was a player in Mike’s inner circle. Yikes.  However, when the going got rough Harris ran away, like all wimps. Hitler ran away at the beginning and at the very end. Adolf ran from the bullets in the square in the 1920s and then hid in the bunker in 1945.  Mulroney ran away as did McGuinty. As will Harper when his time is up. Just watch.  All of them are wimps. Hudak has the same team in place that Mike had, the US Fascists. And the same right wing spiel that didn’t work back then and will never work now economically.  But they all have something in common, from Harper to Harris to Hudak. These masters of the universe always get others to do their dirty work. It is all part of the  Nietzsche Cult of self.  There always seems to be a large number of weak brained people who are prepared to follow orders in return for a pat on the head and a pay cheque. Hitler surrounded himself with morons and thugs.  The very strength of democratic societies is the willingness of most of the population to accept the will of the majority and continue working together. On many occasions I have disagreed with the directions taken by Ottawa or Queen’s Park or the Courts. But if most of the PEOPLE expressed themselves IN A FAIR VOTE or FAIR TESTIMONY then I am prepared to BOW TO THEIR WILL. Now I draw the line when there is cheating at election time as in the case of Ted Opitz or his lying to the Court. At least 200 other ridings were stolen by Harper in the 2011 contest. The Fascists [ right ] have never been able to attract more than 20% of the votes in the USA and less than 15% in Canada no matter what Preacher Manning and John Ibbitson say. In a democratic society those are NOT WINNING NUMBERS for the right. Now behind the mask of Harper, Manning, Flanagan, Conrad Black, John Ibbitson et al there is no love for democracy. They belong to the Nietzsche Cult of self.  They are parasitic in that they need the host society to continue so that their small group of exceptional people can suck the life $ blood out of it. But parasites have no governing mechanism to tell them when enough is enough. Rather, enough is never enough.  History has proven that time after time. On the tree line of the home I had in Pickering for almost 50 years there was a strain of parasitic vines which were relentless. The vines travelled under the ground to the base of a tree, then climbed into the tree. If I was not careful the leaves of the vines would spread out, over and above the canopy. These leaves were sort of neutral in shape and a beautiful green. The original tree would be shaded from the sunlight and the vines would suck up the moisture from the ground. Then the vine leaves would eventually turn brown and drop off revealing a dead tree in underneath. The vines on that tree would then die as well. Now the vine system travels farther along  and survived. It had already picked another victim. So too the Fascists. There are only two places in the world where the Nietzsche Cult of self took root. In Nazi Germany and the USA. The Nietzsche myth is the handiwork of about 6 people [ 1885 / 1910 ], two dead German philosophers [ Schopenhauer and Stirner ] and after 1910 in the USA,  H. L. Mencken and Ayn Rand. It is a fairy tale which appeals to wimp Fascists.  German soldiers in the First World War were given Nietzsche texts. We do not know if  Hitler actually read Nietzsche at that time but some of Fred’s supposed views were encorporated into Mein Kampf.  The 6 people were involved in collecting Nietzsche’s scattered writings / notes, putting them in readable form and adding their own ideas to the whole [ 1885 / 1900 /. One of these ghost writers was Nietzsche’s sister Elisabeth, the ring leader.  Schopenhauer and Stirner WERE PHILOSOPHERS who both died when Fred was about ten. Schopenhauer contributed the idea of  man’s WILL to the debate. Stirner wrote about the Ubermen [ Hitler / Harper / Manning / Black / Flanagan ] and the masses [ the mob / the rest of us ] [ we the little people according to Lady Black ]. Nietzsche stole both ideas [ will and Uberman ] and made them his own. Fred was NEVER a philosopher himself, at University HE STUDIED PHILOSOPHERS. Nietzsche was a sickly wimp who self elevated himself to the status of an exceptional person [ he thought himself a genius actually ]. Fred’s scribblings were turned into a  manual for wimps. This manual explained how a nobody can become a somebody in their own mind [ sound like Harper? ].  Many of the non men in Germany [ like Hitler ] and the USA took notice. One could escape from being a nobody by recognizing one’s own self importance. And proclaiming same. When you know you are important, you do important things. Right?  Like Conrad Black.  Then one could join the others in that exclusive club of exceptional men [ with no balls ] and eventually rule the world. Of course such a view runs in the exact opposite direction to a democracy. In a recent survey of the hard right the exalted men outnumber the exalted women 1600 t0 one. So for every Diane Finley MP, there are 1600 wimps who are bullies. For Danielle Smith MPP there are another 1600 weird guys with intolerant ideas. For every Jenni Byrne there are, oh well you know.  Hitler and company latched onto Nietzsche and made him a part of the Nazi religion. In the USA  Henry Lewis Mencken [ 1880 / 1956 ], a noted wimp, read about the Nietzsche Cult of the self in his early 20s. H. L. liked what he saw. It set him free. Of German background, he was a reporter for the Baltimore Morning Herald. H. L. got hold of one of those books then being distributed by Elisabeth Nietzsche and translated it into English. That would become his life long ticket to fame. Mencken’s books and articles particularly  appealed to young American wimps. H. L. had no use for democracy and thought the majority of the population in the USA was stupid. And called them such. Mencken, couldn’t get it up like so many on the right, phonies.  Danielle Smith feels the same about Albertans,  they are stupid she said.  Those who suffered from UPC and could / can cheat, lie and steal advanced within the Nietzsche religion. They have to be able to say one thing and do the opposite, to never admit to making a mistake and always blame others for any mistake like Harper. But the problem for such exalted sufferers of UPC they have no insight. They could not comprehend that their actions will  have catastophic consequences down the road. George Bush Jr., the US Supreme Court’s choice for President created his own reality and destroyed his Country. Hitler did the same.  His capital, Berlin was bombed to rubble and some Germans are still resentful. They WILL NOT ACCEPT BLAME FOR THEIR OWN ACTIONS. I have always be of the mind that if you challenge me to a duel, you can chose the weapons. If you want to play dirty I will play even dirtier. Whatever you are capable of I can do worse. I can’t abide bullies. Bullies always expect to win. Most Canadians bow to bullies, either the US or Harper. You exterminate them by making sure they lose big time.  When Wimps bully others and it doesn’t work out then they want leniency and cry for their mommies like Doug Findley. Tom Flanagan is a bully who misspoke [ Tom should go home and work with US aboriginals ]. Instead of having  the courage of his convictions and coming clean about his taste for boys, Flanagan asked for understanding. If  Tom likes little kids so beit. Wimps however will never stand up and be counted. Herr Harper it would seem learned lots from Flanagan and Manning. Himself is playing a dangerous game.  Stevie can’t see where he is taking Canada, into the valley of the shadow of death, that’s where. I am the Father of three and have 4 grandchildren. A caring father would not do, could not do what Steve is doing to his own children. UPC sufferers can be spotted a mile away because they have no feeling for others, even their own families. Harper is either devoid of his societal nodule [ UPC ] or the kids are not his. Maybe Lyin Steve’s family is a sort of rent a family [ not real ]. A prop for photo ops. Nothing about Herr Harper seems real. In any event Mencken became very popular among young men like our Harper, in the 1920s . Ayn Rand [ 1905 / 1982 ] was born in Russia, she supported the Communists. That was until they took her family’s possessions away. Ayn moved to the USA in 1924 to live with relatives and became aquainted with Mencken. She was a student of Nietzsche as was H. L. He promoted her writings, which were third rate at best. In quick order Rand switched from the Commie line to the hard right and began writing Nietzsche inspired texts. Yes you are right. Even back in the 1920s journalists got paid for right wing spin.  Thus Mencken was the high priest of Nietzsche in America and Rand its’ high priestess. Alan Greenspan and Paul Ryan worship her. Both wimps? Yes.  There were 3 other characters who were woven into the Sacred Book of the Right Wing Religion . All 3 were student of the Nietzsche myth. Ludwig von Mises [ 1881 / 1973 ] and Friedrich Hayek [ 1899 / 1992 ] worked together, Fred was Mises’ assistant. Mises had studied under a Carl Menger [ 1840 / 1921 ], a bean counter who worked for Crown Prince Rudolf von Hapsberg [ 1858 / 1889 /developing fiscal theories that applied to Austria [ only ] [ a monarchy ] at that time. Menger was educated as a LAWYER and he had no working knowledge of democratic  government. In 1889 his Prince, who was married, shot his 17 year old mistress, then himself. Menger was out of a job. He ended up at the University of Vienna, appointed by the Prince’s dad. Menger started teaching basic  economics based on his own experiences. Much like Terry Corcoron, a phony ].  German economists at that time opposed Menger as he had departed from mainstream theory by proposing a lot of mumbo jumbo. Carl even contested Adam Smith’s writings. The Germans called what Menger was teaching , ” the Austrian School “.  A group of ideas and theories which were never  formalized, never worked, nonsense related. Mises was as student of Menger in 1900. In 1923 Hayek [ an Austrian ] went to work for Mises as a LAWYER. In the late 1920s Mises and Hayek formed the Austrian School of Economics based on Menger’s [ died 1921 ] teachings. Of course dead men can’t complain about the theft of their thunder. Nietzsche stole ideas from others. Von Mises and Hayek did the same thing. Experts have looked at the Mises / Hayek  School and don’t know what it is or what it does but it sure had legs among the simple minded in the Republican party [ example Ronal Reagan ]. The hard right adopted Mises and Hayek economic theories and the Austrian School of Economics had a nice impressive ring to it. It sounded authentic.  But it was / is as phony as a 3 dollar bill. The Austrian School of Economics is anything you want to make of  it, like play dough.  Leo Strauss who also fled Hitler’s Germany studied political philosophy as related to Plato and Aristotle. He became a prof. at the University of Chicago, the center of right wing politics in the USA based on Nietzsche stance.  Again the American right seized upon yet another European intellectual to give their religion legitimacy. Strauss was another wimp who was freed by the Nietzsche Myth. Strauss was anti democratic and taught that perpetual deception of the people by those in power is critical because the masses need to be led. Leo thought that the citizenry needed strong leaders to tell what is good for them. Leo would have loved Herr Harper, a committed disciple. Strauss concocted the idea of the noble lie. If  Herr Harper [ a Straussian as is Tom Flanagan ] tells a lie, it is noble in that he remains true to the goal of regime change. It is a little like saying if the people around Hitler really believed in his actions in their heart of hearts, then lying and dirty deeds were okay. Our boy Harper tells at least a dozen noble lies a day. Strauss would be proud. So the hard right in the USA drew from the writings of H. L. Mencken and Ayn Rand to create the spirit of Nietzshe in their religion and Great Book without naming him. Fred, after all was associated with Hitler and the Nazis. For the righties Mises / Hayek and their stolen / phony Austrian School of Economics provided guidance for running US finances. Simply put, let the market and businesses do what they want and the good times will roll. Good times for the self appointed exceptional people will roll that is. Enough cash to stash offshore. Leaving no stone unturned Adam Smith’s Invisible Hand comment was picked up by the right and thoroughly mangled. Its’ use has been distorted by the right to argue against government regulations like the Glass / Stealy Act. And to put the finishing touches to the religion of the right they adopted Leo Strauss’s set of  political rules which in simplified form promotes cheating, lying and stealing. So the right / Republicans / Sociopathic  religion is made up almost entirely of UPC sufferers, mostly young men who outnumber young women 1600 to one. No wonder the wimps complain about there being so few right wing gals to chose from. Maybe Diane and Rona can take pity on their male trained seals MPs in Parliament and spread themselves around a little. But women want to be around real men. In terms of finance, greed dominates the right wing  who quest for money and power. A real democracy denies them both. In a democracy you have to earn your spurs.  Enough is never enough for the rightie insiders. In terms of the political rules of engagement anything goes, even Robo Calls.  Of course this right wing religion is now being imported into what has become punching bag Canada by Harper. Lyin Steve stole the 2011 election but you ain’t seem nothing yet. President Obama beat the pants off  that nitwit Romney by a much bigger margin than reported. The cheating Stateside inflated Romney’s losing numbers. Many journalists forecasted that the Republicans would move closer to the center to attract more votes. The opposite is happening. The Rebooblicans are miffed that their cheating didn’t work. They feel they were cheated out of a cheated vistory. So rather that become more civilized and show more respect for democracy, they are going to double down and step up their vote cheating. The Reboobs say , ” if we can’t have America to do with it as we please then nobody shall have America. Karl Rove [ another wimp ] [ the Tom Flanagan of the USA ] collected more than $ 300 million in order to defeat Obama. He says he is going to better that next time. Can you imagine that 300 million being spent on education or health???  Republican States are now rigging things to take away the voting rights of minorities to ensure a right wing victory next time. I believe this determination to cheat will spill over into Canada once again. What is dangerous about this prospect is the Herr Harper has cowed Elections Canada as he has done with the RCMP and Revenue Canada. And with our very sleepy, detatched  Elections Canada in charge the cheating by Harper and his Fascists next time round will be even more intense. We have to begin organizing The Election Vigilante League now to be ready for 2015 election, that is, if  Harper hasn’t turned this Country into a dictatorship by then.  As I have said many times Sociopaths suffer from UPC. They never admit to mistakes and therefore they keep doing the same things over and over like those with Autism. You can count on it. Harper holds his position based on under the able money from the US oil cartel. That is why he twists himself  into a pretzel, doing the cartel’s bidding. But the cartel’s interest in Canada is fast fading except for the cheap tar in Alberta. If a deal with Venzuela for heavy oil is made our boy Steve is finished. The religion of the right is incompatible with democracy. We can’t have it both ways. We can’t have a small group of self proclaimed superior people [ mental midgets ] claiming all the wealth of a nation and running around acting like bullies. And yet subscribe to the idea of the will [ a majority ] of the people. By nature the right is parasitic. If democracy dies, they die. But for the superior people in our midst [ Harper / Manning/ Flanagan etc ]  that fact has yet to sink in. And far too members of the mob [ us ] have yet to recognize the dangers of the Nietzsche Cult of self. These are the very same Ontarians who believed that the closing of the Legislature was no big deal because the $ media said very little about Prorogation. History is full of stories of people who did not realize their democratic rights had been taken away until they heard the clang of the concentration camp gate close behind them.  The solution to our coming problem is to jail all those who cheat at elections time. Ted Opitz MP, Arthur Hamilton, Dean del Mastro MP and Peter Penashue are good examples. They, Harper and the  the Fascists cheated in the 2011 Election. Opitz knows it, Harper knows it, Hamilton knows it, Mastro knows it, Penashue knows it.  But this is perfect timing, Harper is building new jails. They’ll all have a place. I would like to see the aforementioned be the first to try out the new cells. Peter Penashue, Minister, has just resigned, finally admitting he was lying, cheating and he broke the law. There will now be a by-election. Harper immediately announced Penashue would be his Fascist candidate. This is why democracy in Canada has been weakened under Harper. THERE ARE RIDING ASSOCIATIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHEREIN THE MEMBERSHIP CHOOSES THE CANDIDATE. EACH POLITICAL PARTY HAS SUCH ASSOCIATIONS. THUS THE LOCAL PEOPLE GET TO CHOSE WHO REPRESENTS THEM. If  Herr Harper can just sit in Ottawa and chose candidates for each riding, why go throught this phony election process? Simply put, this is tyranny. Canada sacrificed thousand of its’ young to stop the likes of the Kaiser and Hitler. Now we are in the process of just rolling over on Harper’s command. I have been calling Stevie FUHRER for at least 5 years now but too many Canadians continue to doze. Joe Oliver said we should be proud of our heritage, hewers of wood and drawers of water in Harperland. When you and your family are hauling buckets of water down the hill to be exported to the USA, remember your responsibility in allowing this to come to pass. Just think, when you were needed you sat on your ass.

Ah yes, the Keystone XL, the pipe line of death. Now we find out Girling’s folly has been Chavezed. Let’s look at this project through the eyes of a hard headed business man. I occupied such a position for 50 years. I produced top products or services, at affordable prices and gave good customer service. I never went broke, I adjusted to the times, had a roof / 3 squares for my family and didn’t do it on the backs of other, like Conrad Black. I didn’t steal my employee’s pension money.  Remember in North America there are boom / bust cycles every 7 years [ approx ]. So I survived at least 6 recessions. One of my strengths was keeping an ear to the ground to listen for the onrushing hoof beats of hard times. I knew that Ontario was going into the dumpster in 1989 almost a year in advance of the hit. The big tip off was the antics of David Peterson. A slow down was certainly coming but he made it much worse. This Province is still suffering from Peterson’s ineptitude. Oh, the $ media never told you that?  I knew that the subprime meltdown [ 2008 / 2009 ] was approaching in 2006 and began battening down the hatches. My family has never suffered in any of the recessions. We have had to be careful and trim our sails but we have escaped rather unscathed. Darwin was supposed to have promoted the idea of , ” survival of the fittest ” . He did not. This survival nonsense was coined by a British economist in 1866. His expression was picked up by the right wing in the USA as well as Hitler. The righties and the Nazis had / have been preaching that power and money win every time. Again, nonsense. What Darwin emphasized was that those who best adapted to the conditions were the ones who survived. Would it not follow that knowing the real facts  about our trials and tribulation would be of paramount importance to surviving? Shouldn’t investors know the real story of Keystone before forking over cash. The old sayng is true, ” a fool and his money are soon parted “. Russ Girling is in the hunt for fools. Living in Bush Jr.’s unreality as Herr harper is does not a long life guarantee.  The Republicans have as their foundation myths that are taught every day to young, impressionable  UPC [ Undeveloped Prefrontal Cortex ] sufferers. Preston Manning does that here with your tax dollars, in Calgary and Carleton University in Ottawa. To begin with there is the Nietzsche Cult of self, the details of which were totally made up by the right.  Then there is Friedrich Hayek, whose economic ideas were half baked and never had a chance of succeeding. The Repubs had fiction writers dream up a  theory based on Hayek’s babble. I have been calling himself  Herr Harper for at least 5 years. Steve is mentally ill. This was confirmed when he said he worships Hayek. Stevie is not all there. Leo Strauss of the University of Chicago was teaching the Noble Lie. Which says if you lie in the good cause of the right wing your lies are noble. So I guess that Harper is the noblest champ of all times. Or could that be chump? Strauss was a Jew who got out of Germany by the skin of his teeth in 1938. Leo loved what Hitler was doing but not the man himself and his extermination camps. Those the right honour are all crackpots. Strauss advocated that saying one thing and doing another is honourable, to never admit a mistake and always blame others was the way to power. Once in power, anything to keep you there was okay, even if illegal. And he said, what the general population [ Nietzsche's mob ] needed was a few strong men who could bully people about. Leo feared Nietzsche’s slothful mob [ us ] would  ruin everything for the wimps. Now teaching this subversive stuff  in Chicago, the centre of the right wing in the USA was actually paving the way for the overthrow of democracy in the USA. And it worked. As stated Harper hews to Hayek but he is also enthralled with Strauss.  Leo, with his Nietzsche upbringing appealed to the wimps on the right. Declare yourself exceptional, you can be in our club and be part of the group that rules the world. If you look up Sociopath on the net and investigate Strauss you can see that Lyin Steve follows the prescribed behaviours religiously. Tom Flanagan [ another Nietzsche adherent ] taught Steve well. I have been forecasting the collapse of the Alberta oil and natural gas economy for about 2 years. As soon as I got a handle on fracking I knew the jig was up for Western oil and nat. gas. In fact you can read my comments on earlier blogs. Raining on the parade of the politicians, oil cartel, the rich, the hedge funds and stock brokers is not a popular thing to do for a writer. You’ll [ I'll ] never get a job at the Globe and Oil, that’s for sure. The petro $ media would  / will certainly not broadcast / print negative stuff about oil. NEVER  EVER. And they are not printing honest stuff in the present crude bitumen  circumstances. All of those in the population who are influenced by the petro $ media and believe every word are going to be cut off at the knees financially. Suckered one more time.  But this time it could be far worse. Preem Redford is being blamed for the downturn in Alberta. That downturn has really been caused by the US oil cartel [ again ] and those on the right. Just like with Trudeau and the NEP. So in a sense you can say Redford is being Trudeaued by a well paid petro $ media in full cry. Their chorus is a slow boat to nowhere for Canada. It is interesting that at this very moment, before the Keystone, Hugo Chavez died. Amazingly the Harper media has been attacking Chavez as much as Redford. It is going to be a real contest to see which devil has the biggest horns. The assaults on the Premier are of course being paid for by the US oil cartel. The attacks on Chavez are being carried out by the media to impress the right and their oilie bosses. It is important for the shills to prove once again that they are true believers.  Mindless but what the hey? For years the mere mention of the NEP was enough to score brownies for the writers on the right. Ezra Le Rant [ above all ] mentions the NEP in almost ever column. The NEP has taken over Ezra’s pea size brain entirely.  Now Hugo Chavez can be added to their quiver. But being as stupid as they are the rightie journoshills are missing the significance of the death of Chavez. We may be watching the death of the Keystone XL, Gateway and the Kinder Morgan expansion  due to lack of investment money. Surely the pipe line cpmpanies have run out of investment suckers? Daaaaaaaaaa.  Successful businessmen and investors operate in the here and now, they look ahead and adapt.  They are not in La La Land with that noted economist ??? Stephen Harper ??? and his press pals. I would predict that the Keystone, Gateway and Kinder Morgan  projects will evaporate and that Alberta, Saskachewan and Manitoba are in for a very rough ride. Much like the US economy.  The 3 Premiers are very late to this game [ maybe too late ]. They are taking their cues from the petro $ media and ill informed advisors. An extremely bad move.  The hoof beats of history have been evident for some time for those who are prepared to pay attention and USE THEIR BRAINS.  Harper is the no brainer. When you add a number to the column the sum changes. The prospect of getting heavy oil from Venezuela when their new Government takes over is very real. Behind the scenes the passing of Hugo Chavez is already being factored in. At the very least it will cause smart investors to sit on their money and allow for a pause. This will force TransNotCanada, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan to put a hold on their plans. In the oil community there is uncertainty. This is so delicious. Harper has half of his wimpish trained seals down in Washington selling a pipe line that may now be just a pipe dream. To add to the comedic atmosphere. Joe ” Tailing Pond Charlie ” Oliver is traipsing the land promoting  something that is not here to-day and may well be gone bye bye tomorrow. At the worst the three pipelines will get the chop. If the idle refineries in Texas and California  begin receiving Venezuelan heavy oil again there is no need to buy dirty tar slurry from Alberta, end of story. Go on the net. That conversation is already taking place.  It would be my best guess that the 3 pipes are history. But Harper, Danielle Smith and the petro $ media will never tell you that because they are all in La La Land. Albertans who listen to the cartel, Lyin Steve and lying Danielle will realize that they have been had the day they are evicted and are packing their belongings in a Calgary U Haul.  I am reminded of a story about the Titanic. A family, father, mother and two kids are fast asleep in their stateroom, Dad is awakened by a bump. He puts on his robe and goes out in the hallway where he encounters a crew member. Dad is reassured there  is nothing wrong. He returns to his cabin and gets back in  bed. This bump in the night  doesn’t go down well however. Dad awakens his family, gets them dressed and goes out on the deck. Of course all hell has broken loose by then but the ship has not yet started to list. The order is given to abandon ship, our little family makes it into a lifeboat and they survived the ordeal. People in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba are being told by Harper, Joe Oliver, Danielle Smith and the petro $ media that nothing is wrong, just go back to sleep. The first trip to the food bank by the little people will inform them that they made a mistake not paying attention to events in the real world. And that placing their trust in the Fascists, oilies and the petrol $ media was a misstep.  There is a plan B for the Western Provinces which I have been writing about for some time but I know I am swimming against the current and oil money. It is against human nature to leave a swinging party early. So it would seem that the people in the West are going to have to hurt a little or maybe hurt a lot before they respond to this crisis. These same types would not leave the Florida islands in the face of Katrina. They now wear wings. Each day that is lost not implementing plan B [ NES / real jobs not imaginary ones ] puts a recovery further out of reach.  So Harper, Joe Oliver, a whole teams of spin doctors along with the help of the petro $ media will continue to sing the sirens’ sweet song that is way out of date. In Greek mythology the sirens inhabited the islands called Sirenum scopuli [ rock ]. Their songs lured sailors to their deaths on the rocky shore. The Harper team listed above is right now luring the Western Provinces to be dashed upon the rocks of ruin. By making the dreadful mistake of not reacting.  Seizing the moment is crucial. The death of Chavez is a game changer. Any business that only has one product and one customer is doomed in the long haul. As is the west if the people there don’t act. And pronto. The idea with the Keystone now is to reconnect with a single customer in Port Arthur Texas. Just think, that customer will have Alberta’s nackers in his hand and set the price. If Venezuela heavy oil is imported into Texas the Russ Girling will just trasport Bakken light oil.  The folks who live in the shadow of the Rockies are especially vulnerable when led by someone like Harper who lives in La La Land. America lives there too with George Bush Jr., both captives of  Big Oil. In the land of Harper and Bush the passing of Hugo Chavez’sis just that, a passing. In the real world it has changed the dynamics of the global oil industry. I think the chances of sending tar slurry to Texas / California are zero to none. I believe Kinder Morgan is going to get the chop too. The US oil cartel will discontinue the DilBit Kinder is now shipping through Vancouver and down the coast to California [ not Asia as Oliver would have us believe ]. The problem for the tar sands area is that when the oil cartel suddenly leaves, the toxic mess will be left  behind for us to clean up. You know that I do a lot of research on the net, the truth is there but you have to dig for it. I understand that those who write for the right are not allowed to check things out on the net. This allows journalists to remain stupid and to continue to tell you oilie lies. Go on the net and look for pictures of Azerbaijan / Baku /  [ edwardburtynsky.com / Socar Oil Fields ]. They show what happens when the oil companies leave. Also look for the pics of the CP derailment in Minnesota, the EXXON spill in Arkansas and the CP derailment in White River. The US oil cartel / TransNotCanada / Enbridge / Kinder Morgan are trying to cover up the dangers of  transporting Crude Bitumen through pipe designed to carry refined oil. The petro $ media is being paid millions to fool you. And if you allow yourself to be fooled more the fool you. Harper and Bush live in a fool’s paradise and the West is now visiting. It would be best to cut their vacation short and get back to reality.  The Alberta tar sands will be the next oilie orphan.  Just another Baku. The oil business doesn’t have to pollute this way and be this dirty. It is just the way the Americans do business. Profits are increased by them not cleaning up after themselves. Premier Redford has to implement her NES, rather  quickly. In the face of a hostile petro $ media that is trying to hound the Preem out of office before she frees Albertans. If she hesitates Alberta will be the home of  food banks and tailing ponds forever. Alberta doesn’t have enough money or credit to clean up this mess on its’ own. Shortly the Yankees  oil cartel will be long gone. And Oilie Joe Oliver will have to go into hiding. Is it possible that Albertans will want Ontario to come to their financial rescue yet AGAIN?  But this time maybe the Eastern bastards won’t wanna.

What is the Keystone XL you might ask? Let’s strip it down to the bare essentials. Our journey starts in Port Arthur Texas and San Francisco / Los Angeles California. The US oil cartel [ a monopoly granted by the Republicans in the 1920s ] occupied Venezuela in an oil sense much as they do in Alberta. The corrupt Government of that Country was paid off [ well paid off ], just like in the case of Herr Harper. Steve gets loads of oil money under the table but Revenue Canada is obsessed with David Suzuki [ on Harper's orders ]. As regards US oil cartel political funding Rev. Can. looks the other way. The bulk of the Venezuelan people lived in poverty [ 1980s ]. The cartel extracted huge amounts of oil from the Country and gave little back in return. But the royalties paid to Venzuela [ 17% ] were never as low as in the case of Alberta [ 8% ]. The leadership in the Province other than Peter Lougheed have had spines made from marshmallow. Ed Stelmach is a good example. The cartel barked in print through the petro $ media and poor Ed disintegrated into a new form of jelly and SURRENDERED. Venezuela has a huge reserve of various types of petroleum, one being heavy oil [ real oil that flows like HP Sauce ]. The management of the US oil cartel is made up of many company names, containing people who are supremely arrogant. They almost have enough money to run the world and in some cases do. The oilies, using many company names is the method by which the cartel fools the American people [ American people seem to be prone to being fooled over and over ]. The phony companies that make up the cartel collude with each other. Collusion [ price fixing ] itself is a crime but since Congress gets paid off it too looks the other way] [ Harper is paid off as well ]. Anyway, for the oilies it was all smooth sailing in Venezuela. A corrupt Government was in the bag and the general public was under the control of the Army. Who could ask for anything more? So the process of stripping Venezuela of its’ oil resources began. But what to do with  stuff that was like HP Sauce? The cartel built large refineries in Port Arthur in Texas and San Fran. / LA  California to handle the thicker oil. Something other refineries couldn’t do. In eastern Canada and the USA there are NO refineries that can handle thick oil or DilBit. The building of these specialty refineries in Texas and California shows the pure nerve of the US cartel. The Gulf refineries along the Texas / Louisiana coast supply about 50% of America’s gasoline. This location provides the oil cartel with two markets, domestic and global. In a sense they built a special infrastructure to process what amounts to stolen goods from Venezuela, secure in the knowledge that this arrangement would never end. Daaaaaaaaaaa. How many slaves ever escape their captors? So goes the story, so Sociopathic.  In 2010 CAPP estimated that the US oil cartel took $ 125 billion in petroleum out of Alberta and gave back a little over $ 10 billion [ about 8% ]. It is estimated that Albertans have lost $ 45 billion to the cartel in the last 10 years. The Venezuelans got more for their oil than we did. And we think of them as the third world? In fact all in, Canada gives its’ petroleum resources away for nothing. We sell raw cheap tar and buy back expensive refined products. Venezuela’s heavy oil came by tanker to the US. The ports in Texas and California are tax free areas. Another sweetheart deal cooked up for the cartel by Congress. This tax free status allows oil to be brought in from anywhere in the world, refined the shipped back out to the world market WITHOUT America collecting ANY TAXES. . Before Ronald Reagan was installed as  President  large corporations paid about 35% of American taxes. That tax rate is now 9%. The righties always promote lower taxes as a way to prosperity. The USA is now on its’ knees so they are wrong again. Harper started office with a Liberal surplus and he cut the GST. Now look at the mess.  Continuing on the theme of corporate / elite greed coupled with zero insight and no political supervision, I borrow from Thomas Hardy [ English poet ], ”  And as the sleek Titanic grew. In  stature, grace and hue. In the shadowy silent distance grew, a great iceberg too .” Those who create their own reality, sometimes pay a dreadful price. Harper is now facing a backbench revolt  and a plunging economy . Those in La la Land like Steve never cotton on to the possibility of an iceberg until it is too late.  As the US oil cartel plundered Venezuela of its’ oil  Hugo Chavez started his climb to power. Once in control he drove the oil cartel from the temple and nationalized their holdings [ we should do the same in Alberta ]. The US Government was not amused by Hugo, nor were those weak minded Americans who believe everything their petro $ media told / tells  them [ just like Albertans ]. The USA did everything in its’ power to bring Chavez down but he was loved by his people, too tough and too smart. Usually Washington deals with such leaders by paying to have them assassinated. But Chavez outsmarted Washington and the cartel. Hugo directed the billions that were going into the pockets of the US oil cartel be redirected towards his impoverished people [ as Alison Redford should be doing, using her Provinces's resources to the benefit of her people ]. Even to-day, with the death of Chavez the $ media here and Stateside still can’t deal with the truth. Can. media owners never saw a lie, accompanied by a fat cheque that they didn’t like. So the US oil cartel found itself with refineries in Texas and California that were not going to be supplied with  heavy Venezuelan oil. Crude bitumen mixed with lighter fluid was beginning to be transported by Enbridge through its’ refined oil pipe lines under the very noses of   US Government officials. The oilies were mad about Chavez but the collapse of the American economy [ 2008 / 2009 ]  cause by Wall St.’s orchestration of the subprime mortgage scandal diverted their attention for a while. Increasing numbers of Yanks could no longer afford to drive, those who could continue to drive bought smaller vehicles, then you add in the fracking of oil and nat. gas. All of this turned the energy business on its’ ear. It has taken time for the US oil cartel to chart a new course that will see its’ profits remain undiminished. The same pattern as in the 1980s has kicked in for the cartel. Like any greedy corporation, it’s first move is to lay off workers so to speak. For the US cartel this means jettisoning partners like Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, as well as all the junior oil and nat. gas businesses there and in Texas too. The cartel majors are now selling out their Western Canada assets for their depressed value to the Chinese and other foreigners. By the way Canadians get none of that money.  The Asians are flush with cash, have the long term view and are prepared to oil bank for the future. The assets they are now buying can only appreciate with time. The US oil cartel is interested in the next quarter and the management of same would sell their grandmothers’ gold teeth even while they are still alive. So the cartel is disappearing over the hill to the south now and leaving Canada to deal with a mess of a poisoned sky, land and water. As the cartel steals into the night so goes Herr Harper’s meal ticket as well as Danielle Smith’s. It all began with mixing tar with lighter fluid and sending it through a pipe  in Cold Lake. As the mining of tar moved away from the upgrader a way had to be found to move the mineral easily. Forcing diluted minerals through  pipes to the distant  processer is a well know practice in the world. Iron ore is moved that way.  In the beginning DilBit was moved by a short pipe [ the sand did not have time to heat up the pipe ] on company property. Any spill would not have affected the public interest nor damage the environment because of containment barriers. Like berms around oil storage tanks. Then the cartel got the idea that they could feed the Texas / California refineries with tar slurry after Chavez cut them off. Raw tar was different than the Venezuela heavy oil but still refineable. Of course this scheme would only work if certain conditions were met. The transporting of DilBit by Enbridge had to use the existing pipe line network designed for synthetic oil. A misuse of the system which endangered lives, the environment and the Company shareholders. It had to be done without informing government officials. Any spill / ruptures [ from thinning pipes made in India and China ] had to be covered up by buying the allegiance of the petro $ media. Which was instructed to use the term []  O I L []  not crude bitumen. Crude Bitumen is a legal terms that enables Enbridge to avoid taxes. Crude Bitumen does not become oil [ synthetic crude oil ] until it comes out of the other end of an upgrader which removes all the impurities like quartz sand and the toxic chemicals . The cartel had to be able to buy the tar real cheap which they could do because Alberta had no other customers. The cartel had to be able to avoid any responsibility for the poisons / mess being accumulated in the tar sands which would be left behind eventually. That Harper has already looked after.  The tar slurry had to be transported on the cheap, using pipe lines meant for refined oil and the environmental restrictions had to be as light as a feather. Controls, sensors and pumps meant for refined oil were used with DilBit but don’t work because of the damage from the sand. Harper has OKed that too. And the cartel wanted no penalties at all for destroying  the landscape. Harper accommodated them on that. The pipers are not responsible for DilBit spills. Congress let them off the hook.  So then the Keystone XL idea was born in order that the Texas  refineries belonging to the cartel could be spooled back up to full capacity [ that is the only reason  / pure corporate greed ]. As planned by the insiders, the Keystone, Gateway and Kinder Morgan pipelines will all rob Albertans, Canadians, Americans, small investors and endanger all those along the entire length of each pipe [ more than 2000 miles for the Keystone ] and the environment. The winners are all related, they live on Wall St. When you stand back and look at this scheme it really takes one hell of a lot of nerve to try and pull this kind of thing off.  This is arrogance born of a 90 year old monopoly. The US oil cartel has bought off Congress and Ottawa and paid the petro $ media in North America to heel. The cartel is secure of mind that nobody can stop them and they may well be right. The will of the people means nothing to the cartel, thus democracy means nothing to them. And democracy mean nothing to Harper, Manning or the secret Civitas Society that met in Ottawa March 9 /13. Manning explained to this Fascist gathering that it was important to carry the message of the faithful to all levels of government, municipal, provincial and Federal. Crucial to the cause is the indoctrination of our young both at Calgary U and Carleton University in Ottawa for starters. It is very much like the instructional process the Hitler youth went through.  Especially important is the rigging of elections as practiced in the USA by the Republicans. Ron Paul brought greeting to Preston Manning in Ottawa from his supporters on the far right [ one % of Americans ]. Everything the media writes or broadcasts about oil is lies. The story of DilBit is pure subterfuge. The tar that was being mined in Fort McMurray in the early 1990s had to go through an upgrader. What came out the other end was synthetic crude oil [ SCO ]. It was oil without any impurities whatsoever. SCO was the  raw oil that could be turned into gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, oils for foodstuffs, home heating oil, lubricants, naptha, lighter fluid, kerosene and waxes.  So a barrel of SCO can go anywhere and be turned into products required in that area by the local refinery. Before 2000 there were few oil spills.  SCO is the perfect form of oil to distribute across Canada to local refineries. I thas always had a good safety record. Enbridge’s 800 spills in the last 10 years has everything to do with Pat Daniel sneaking DilBit into his pipe lines and not telling anyone. As the tar sands grew the mining operations moved farther and farther away from the upgraders. What to do? What to do? Experiments were started as to how to transport the bitumen [ tar, about the consistency of peanut butter ] ] through a pipe line. It was found that if the tar was mixed with lighter fluid it could be pumped a short distance from A to B within the mine site. Instead of developing a new safe system to transport thinned bitumen by pipe and working with government officials in Can. and the US to get approval. The cartel in cahoots with Enbridge and TransNotCanada decided to just do it and not tell anyone. From 2000 to 2010 Enbridge had more than 800 spills, most of them involving DilBit. Former CEO Pat Daniel of Enbridge continually lied to Can. / US officials and said it was oil that had spilled in each case. With the Kalamazoo spill the beans got spilled. Enbridge DilBit has ruined part of the River. I mean detroyed it. It has caused people to get sick breathing the hydrogen sulfide gas created when you mix tar and lighter fluid, then heat it up. The increased temperature of a pipe carrying DilBit is caused by the abrasive sand. It is an accident waiting to happen every mile of the way. Residents and businesses along the Kalamazoo River have had to move away and their properties bought out from under them by that son of a bitch Pat Daniel for a song. Enbridge, worth billions has picked off the residents one by one on the cheap and they have had no one to take their side. Some of them are sick from the spill.  There is nobody to defend them. Congress and State politicians have all been bought off as has the media.  With these spills, the governments allows the pipe line Companies to investigate themselves. So the larger citizenry never finds out about all of these corporate abuses because the $ media is paid to keep their traps shut. It is interesting that Pat Daniel, who should be in prison right now was given a business leader of the year award. Then our Pat went into hiding and a new liar took over, Al Monaco. Can you imagine Air Canada being allowed to investigate its’ own accidents. After the Kalamazoo spill, the US Government has now decided to study the safety of sending tar laced with quartz sand and mixed with lighter fluid via inferior steel pipes?  This investigation is 10 years too late due mainly to George Bush Jr. and the Republican Congress. And 40% of americans are so stupid they vote for these guys continuously. Pay the Republicans enough $ and they will spit nickels. It may be that the US Government will ban DilBit from the pipe lines. But I suspect that if the Keystone XL is actually built before a decision comes down it will be grandfathered. That will mean even more payments to Congress / Parliament Hill and the $ media. Under such condition the XL will be closed after the first major DilBit spil occurs. Now Russ Girling has told investors, Congress members and Texans [ not Canadians ] of his default position. If the pipe line were to be closed, Russ would use it to bring Alberta / Rockies water to the panhandle.  Now here is the sticky wicket. Hugo Chavez, was a champion of the Venezuelan people. The principals at the top of the US oil cartel must be cringing as they watch Herr Harper and his press galley attacking the dead Chavez. Now Hugo is gone it opens the door to the US cartel reestablishing a business relationship with Venezuela. That Country has the heavy oil, the very reason the refineries were built in Texas and California in the first place. It would be a whole lot cheaper, safer and more dependable to ship heavy oil it to the USA rather than  bring that dangerous tar slurry mixed with lighter fluid 2000 miles from Alberta. One Kalamazoo type spill on the Keystone XL and the line would be closed, maybe indefinitely? Why take chances if Venezuelan heavy oil is now available?  The the US oil cartel would really be in the soup. But attacking Chavez Harper has made it much more difficult for the cartel to get back into Venzuela heavy oil again and the price and conditions have no doubt gone up. The Yankee oil carpetbaggers need that Country more than Venezuela needs them. Chavez has been selling his oil all over the world and that will not change. In fact I believe the Chinese were buying some and so is Canada. Young Steve, a so called economist is a clod of the first order. I think that Albertans who are forced to join the jobless line will turf this guy, but quick. And any investor thinking of investing in the Keystone XL should think about the Chavez factor and think twice. Russ Girling and Al Monaco are playing a dangerous game. Both Enbridge and TransNotCanada have a date with disaster. These pied pipers are sending DilBit all around their western pipe systems for free without government permission. They are now contemplating doing the same in the east. Heated tar slurry plus lighter fluid equals hydrogen sulfide. Disolved in water hydrogen sulfide turns into sulfhydric acid. The toxicity of  H2S compares with cyanide. Being exposed to H2S , which POOLS ON THE GROUND [ it doesn't rise ] can cause eye irritation, a sore throat, cough, nausea, shortness of breath, fluid in the lungs, fatigue, loss of appetite, headaches,  irritability, poor memory and dizziness. Many of these symptoms were present at the Kalamazoo spill as well as one in Alberta. In Mayflower Arka. the only people allowed into the spill area are wearing Hazmat Suits which are used when poisonous gas is present. The trigger that has caused 800 Enbridge spills in ten year is the quartz sand which can only be removed using an upgrader. This sand abrades the inside of the steel pipes [ this questionable steel comes from India and China by the way]. So much for the 46,000  jobs Girling and Monaco promised Joe Oliver. These pied pipers and the Can. Energy Pipe Line Association keep changing the channel and paying for tests done on corrosion inside the pipes. Again by insiders. And these tests the petro $ media obediently reports upon. The spills are being caused by the sand in the unprocessed tar, this causes ABRASION. Daaaaaaaaaaa. This friction ERODES  the cheap steel pipes on the inside, making them thinner until a rupture occurs. The weakening takes place at welded joints, at elbows and curves especially. Both Enbridge and TransNotCanada are being purposely evasive and obtuse.  It is not a matter of if DilBit spills will happen but when? And how many? Will a pipe let go in Alberta again? Saskatchewan? Manitoba? How about Windsor, Hamilton, Toronto or Montreal???  How many people will be gassed? How many children will die? But since the oil cartel and the pied pipers are treated hands off by the US and Canadian Governments the beat goes on. And the beat will go on until enough of the little people [ as Lady Black calls us ] are killed or maimed. If all hell breaks loose Girling, Monaco, Daniel and all the others responsible will quickly disappear into the ether. Just like the Wall Streeters did after the  2008 downturn.  To my Canadian and Americans friends on the far right I would say, this is why we need Governments. To enforce regulations / laws and put the wrong doers in jail. If there is such a major spill, I would hope that Harper, Joe Oliver, Peter Kent, John Baird, Preston Manning and their families et al will suffer first. It should be that these parents are forced to watch their children go first.

As the US oil cartel quits Alberta it could prove be the a great opportunity for Canada. While big oil, our oppressor for so long, is regrouping in the face the oncoming  energy challenges we have a chance to reestablish our sovereignity and become energy self sufficient. We can make Canada whole once again and escape the Harper East / West  divide.  A situation imposed on us by the US oil cartel / Preston Manning / little Stevie Harper. The clouds now gathering over the West are easily discerned. 30 years ago the US oil cartel owned or controlled about 70% of the world’s oil supply. It owned about 75% of the worlds refineries. In North America said refineries were the eye of the needle. Lots of oil, a bit of oil, is of little consequence unless a refinery can be found to process the oil into gasoline, diesel, jet fuel etc. The US oil cartel [ monopoly ] has us by the short and curlies. The cartel is the only game in the USA / Canada and this illegal right to screw the population hereabouts was extended by the Republicans in the 1920s. Venezuela is free of the US cartel, Mexico is free, Norway is free, Iran is free, Saudi Arabia is free, Russian is free etc. But pantywaist Canada, acts the perfect submissive. Joe Oliver thinks we should be proud of our heritage. Joe likes to remind us, you know that stuff about hauling logs and buckets of water. 5 years ago the oil cartel still owned  about 3 / 4 of the refineries but less than 10% of the world oil supply. The cartel had to go flat out to keep its’ refineries humming. It was a seller’s market. Aberta could sell every barrel of tar it could dig up [ shades of the late 1970s all over again]. The heavy oil refineries in Texas [ where the Keystone XL would go ] and California  were built to handle Venezuela heavy oil. Chavez kicked the US cartel out and expropriated their oil infrastructure to get even for the years in which the resource wealth of the Country was stolen [ just like in Alberta ]. Chavez could do that because the world was hungry for oil of any description and he didn’t need the USA. In five short years everything has changed once again due to the popularity of fracking [ both natural gas and oil ]. Most of the fracking activity has been done by the junior petroleum companies, not the US oil cartel. But the majors have become the beneficiaries. With no restrictions or regulations governing fracking the American juniors did what Americans do best, they started yet another boom / bust cycle. Every guy and his uncle is into fracking. Now too much supply has cause a glut of natural gas with the result that the price has tanked. Nat. gas was selling for $ 16 a unit 4 years ago, it is to-day $ 3.85 a unit. The natural gas juniors can’t afford to drill for it below $ 6.50 a unit. Now TransNotCanada and Enbridge are making a killing in Ontario and Quebec. They are charging Alberta prices [ $ 16 a unit ] for nat. gas that is costing Girling / Monaco $ 3.85 a unit. Why? Because we are patsies and our governments know we are patsies. The oilies know we are patsies.  Now the juniors are fracking oil and the very same thing is happening. The price of oil is tanking too and who do you think is making a killing? R i g h t.  The US oil cartel. They own all the refineries here and no matter how low a barrel of oil goes the cartel can still charge whatever they want for gasoline / diesel / jet fuel. The US cartel has closed most of the refineries in Canada saying they are too expensive to maintain. Rather it is to make sure we can’t break out on our own and that we are forever chained to the cartel.  Paying whatever price THEY set for gasoline / diesel / jet fuel etc. Why?  You are right, because we are patsies. And Harper knows patsies when he sees us. The cartel can now buy any amount of crude oil [ real oil ] at the cheapest of prices. So that is why Alberta, in particiular is getting screwed. The Yanks, Alberta’s only customer [ a dreadful business model ], can decide their own price per barrel. Take it or leave it Premier Redford? So the only type of petroleum that the cartel now wants is tar slurry mixed with lighter fluid [ DilBit ] for its’ Texas and California heavy oil refineries. If there is no market for tar then Alberta HAS NO MARKET FOR ANY OF ITS’ RESOURCES . How does one pay the bills when there is no income? No point in asking Danielle Smith that question. She is too stupid to know what is going on, I have watched her on TV, what a swifty. Smith repeats right wing rhetoric is merely hurrying Albertans to the gallows.  Now let’s take a wee break. Where can you find this kind of information? Certainly not in the newspapers, magazines or TV. The insiders know all about this stuff. It is on the net. So in every which way you lose if you are not on the net. The game is rigged against you. And losers are the ones who don’t pay attention always pay. Now an update on the foregoing story of US oil cartel / government sponsored theft.  Hugo Chavez died on March 5 /13. and the Keystone XL takes another whirl. Every right winger who is still breathing is in full cry calling Hugo names. Most of this comment is not about his life and legacy. It is all about how the righties feel towards Chavez. Who was left leaning.  Horror of horrors, even I, a Progressive Conservative am now considered left leaning. The righties can’t keep their mouths shut. Danielle Smith had 3 of her men friends speak out of turn and get turfed. Two Wild Oil Party members misspoke. Then Tom Flanagan, my favourite American draft dodger revealed he is a perv. I have always said this kind of thing can’t come out unless it is in a person’s mind. Of course Flanagan is Lyin Steve’s best friend. There is no doubt in my mind that Harper’s credentials at the University of Oil in Calgary are a put up job. I think Tom gave Steve a free pass, a phony diploma. All kinds of our politicians are Stateside begging for the XL pipe to be built. Canadians are a proud people. When did we fall into this begging mode? It is so embarrassing, especially since the Keystone XL is probably now dead anyway. The environmental arguement against the Keystone no longer holds. The question comes down to economics now. TransNot Canada is now under stress by the market. Girling’s mangement is now being questioned. Will he be the next CEO to go?  The US heavy oil refineries in Texas and California, specifically built to take Venezuelan thick oil may well be reconnected with that Country. Hugo Chavez nationalized much of the oil industry in Venezuela much to the consternation of the US oil cartel, especially EXXON. The Company, one of the shadowy components of the oil monopoly only came away from the battle with Chavez  getting 10 cents on the dollar. That is pleasing to me. EXXON has refused to pay the real costs of cleaning up after the Valdez ran aground more than 20 years ago. The leaked oil [ real oil / before the age of tar ] despoiled the Alaskan coast which has never been put right. The Republicans have made sure EXXON, which brings in billions each quarter, doesn’t have to pay the full cleanup bill. Alaska continues to be screwed. This will happen in Arkansas too, EXXON with the help of the Republicans will again avoid the cleanup bill.  It shows what would happen to the BC coast if a tar laden ship, registered in some south sea island hit the rocks. Our grandchildren would be paying off the damages. When Joe Oliver was making another of his propaganda speechs in BC the other day an oil spill response boat meant to be part of the publicity stunt to back Oliver up ran aground in the Pacific. Not only did Chavez nationalize some of the US oil companies but he called Georgie Bush Jr. a devil when he addressed the UN. Let us just say that there was no way the Americans could openly do business with Chavez. Certainly not EXXON. Although various of the US oil cartel continued to pump oil out of Venezuela on the quiet. This is the kind of thing [ suppression of the news ] a monopoly can do especially when it owns the $ media. The North American press is paid big money not to look too hard and keep YOU IN THE DARK. As long as Hugo was President a gulf remained between him and America as a whole. It was a given that this gulf would remain for a long time. As late as Dec. 2012 Chavez was reported to be in good condition even though he had been operated on for cancer. As 2013 dawned it was clear that Hugo was more seriously ill than was being reported. Those who watch the oil industry very closely, the ones who make all the big money [ besides the cartel ] are always  ahead of the information curve. The leading stock jocks pay the $ media [ like the Globe and Oil ] to cook the news and leave us common folk behind to pay the bills. The insiders have started looking past Chavez in the past few days. It has been decided that in terms of the heavy oil refineries in Texas and California the opportunity for the complete restoration of operations now has to include the Venezuelan option. So at the moment it is a contest which will be, heavy oil coming from Venezuela  or the dangerous, poisonous, difficult tar which has the potential to destroy the environment coming from Alberta. The oil insiders all write in code. They include the real up to date news in their pamphlets to clients / important investors. The everyday holders of stock and the general public are kept in the dark, purposely so. What is happening now is an assessment of the future supplier of heavy oil [ Ven. ] or crude bitument [ Alta. ]. Venezuela is now shipping heavy oil around the world and some of is making its’ way to the USA through third parties. Heavy oil is being shipped to the USA as you read this. I think the new Venezuelan Government will be much more open to  American overtures. Rex Tillerson, CEO of EXXON could easily reconnect with Venezuela through third parties in the cartel. It is an accepted fact that heavy oil from Venzuela would be much easier, cheaper and less messy to refine than the tar slurry from Alberta.  The liability factor is a whole lot less. Why make a profit then pay the money out in fines?  Shell could have a tanker full of Ven. heavy oil in Port Arthur Texas in 4 days and few environmental problems. The system for loading and shipping  already exists and is in use every day. The CO2 footprint is small. Venezuela charges a 33% royalty on the oil taken out of the Country. Alberta gets just 8%. Poor Ed Stelmach tried to boost the royalties on the cartel a wee smidgen and got hammered mercilessly by the petro $ press hired by the cartel. Comparing Venezuela to Alberta the 25% lower royalty rate means that the Province has lost  billions a year for the last 10 years thanks to the strong arm of the US cartel, Preston Manning and Lyin Steve. Thanks too to the petro $ media in the West. Instead of keep harping on Trudeau’s NEP the TV / papers and journalists should have been pushing for an increase in royalties for Alberta. Daaaaaaaaaa. No wonder the cartel can hand out so much money under the table to Harper, Danielle Smith, Preston Manning and the University of Oil in Calgary. With the death of Chavez the money tap is going to be turned off to them [ Steve,Danielle and Preston ] no matter how many upbeat oil articles and propaganda are printed in Calgary petro media. All kinds of phony, good news oilie items are being highlighted  by the press right now to draw attention away for the coming ship wreck. Just the possibility of making a new deal with Venezuela will be enough to upset investors. Why would anyone invest in the Keystone XL when it could just evaporate. When tankers starts arriving in Port Arthur and California with Venezuelan heavy oil the Gateway project as well as the Kinder Morgan crude bitumen line to Vancouver will become old news.  I have long maintained that by the time Alberta gets a 8% royalty on a barrel of tar slurry discounted by 30% and then imports gasoline, diesel, jet fuel etc at full price the Province is actually giving its’ raw resources away for free. The answer again is that they are pure patsies. Preems Redford and Wall are Stateside boosting the Keystone XL. It is a waste of time. In my view the pipe line is dead as a doornail. Apparently the Preems get their information from those who are in the oil business. One such highly regarded specimen who is on a Provincial oil committee said that nobody saw this downturn coming. I would guess that this guy has been in a coma for 2 years. You could see the light of the locomotive moving towards us even earlier than that.  Redford and Wall need new advisors, ones who don’t have their heads in the sand. Bringing the Provinces together [ NES ]and pooling Canada’s resources is the best course of action. United we stand. Divided under an American yoke we all go broke. The deaths of Keystone, Gateway and the Kinder Morgan expansion will have died with Hugo Chavez.  The end of Keystone, Gateway and Kinder Morgan is not a downer but the opening of door that offers exciting prospects. Preem Redford had it right the first time. Since Alberta is giving away its’ oil resources for free any return is better than nothing. The Province may have to cut back synthetic oil production until the new system is set up. There are a number of shuttered upgraders and refineries across Canada which would give us a head start. They should be expropriated The railways have bought a lot of tank cars to use to transport DilBit, they will now be surplus. These could be used to get synthetic oil [ not crude bitumen ] to tide water at Churchill Man. and down Toronto, Montreal and the Maritimes. The Twin Beaver pipe line [ two pipes carrying natural gas and synthetic oil ] would cross above the 55 parallel to just south of Churchill, then head south east into Ontario. A Cross Canada grid would tie Newfoundland, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba  to Fort McMurray electricwise, bringing cheap, Green hydro electricity along the same corridor that carries the oil sands [ it would be real oil / value added jobs ], natural gas infrastructure east. Sending SCO out of Fort McMurray would mean the used of the term oil sands would be legit. This system would cut CO2 markedly. We  Ont. /Que. would get the oil and natural gas we need without having to deal with the sharks at TransNotCanada and Enbridge. The price of  these commodities would be set in Canada, no more give aways to the US. The West would get clean, cheap hydro. Those Americans in the electrical business in the west would be sent packing. The new Twin Beaver pipe line [ carrying oil only & natural gas in the dual pipe ] would be all plastic, much stronger, faster and easier to lay. The computer system to monitor the Beaver pipe would be firewalled. This independant system would repel Chinese hackers. T No foreigner would be able to disrupt the Twin Beaver. This home made system could be sold to all transportation and utilities across Canada to protect the Country’s operations. This equipment, pipes made for oil / nat. gas / the electrical grid, could all be made in this Country, jobs, jobs, jobs. At Churchill we could build a tank farm to hold synthetic oil and LNG for shipment to the world. This would mean two fuels and two markets [ domestic and foreign ] . All controlled by the Canadian Provinces. There is $ 600 billion residing in this Nation looking for good investments. This includes pension funds. Where better to invest than in Canadian prosperity? And jobs for our young people? I would send all the foreign workers home and begin training Canadians to build and maintain our new energy system. In particular I would employ the First Peoples [ and provide training ]. All the jobs in the Can. Provincial Energy Corp. would be unionized. Only essential services workers would be prohibited from striking [ ex. - keeping and upgrader operational ]. Each company participating in the Canadian energy system would have to be unionized. The Provinces are resource rich but each only holds only one puzzle piece. Until all the pieces are put together the puzzle remains incomplete. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. I am tired of being punched around by the Americans. How about you?  Harper is being paid by the oilies to see that our puzzle is never gets completed.  Time to stand up and throw Harper and his Fascists out. We should follow the lead of Premier Redford who is formulating the NES. Most of the other Preems are onside. It will just take a lot of guts on the part of the Premiers to do this. Look what Norway has done in terms of energy [ population 5 million in a difficult environment ]? The Yanks don’t want us to escape from the backwoods. Any chance to draw Canada closer together and prevent the theft of our resources by the Americans will be lost if YOU CONTINUE TO SIT ON YOUR  []   A  S  S   []. Polls show many young adults do not vote. That is a mistake. Turning their back on your own future is a dumb thing to do. Many under 30s complain about lack of good jobs. Well here is their chance. I am laying it all out for them.  Light a fire under this Nation and the jobs will come, simple as that. Support the Canadian Provincial Energy Corp. which will be the outcome of Premier Redford’s NES. I see  it as business which would be owned by the Provinces collectively to harvest this Country’s natural resources in a Green / sustainable way. Creating a different business model in the tar sands in which the resource is mined but the CO2 footprint is much reduced and manageable. If we don’t create  CO2 in the first place they are not a problem. All of the upgrading would have be done in situ at Fort McMurray. The only thing piped across Canada would be safe, synthetic oil and natural gas. No tar slurry would be allowed to be transported, period. Refineries in each Province [ owned by the CPEC ] would convert syn. oil into gasoline, diesel, home heating oil and jet fuel  etc to meet local needs. The US oil cartel would have ziltch imput and we would shut  the Chicago Petroleum Futures Market out of Canada. If Rex Tillerson crossed our border we would put him in jail with Harper.  All energy would be Canadian priced at half the world price and the supply would be secure, no surprises. I say this to our young. Isn’t gaining complete control of our energy [ good jobs ] worth casting your ballot. Stealing from Andre Laurendeau, Editor of Le Devoir [ in 1959 ] who said ,” Maitres chez nous “,  [ Masters in our own house ]. It is as valid a saying to-day as it was then. IT IS ABOUT  TIME. I expect your involvement. Don’t let the Republican Sociopaths and their errand boy Stevie Harper take your future away from you by default.

I watched the CEO of EXXON interviewed on TV. Rex Tillerson is smooth and a very devious man. This is an anti American who is very comfortable being part of an oil monopoly that owns the Republican part of the Congress. Since I started this blog I have used the expression US oil cartel. It is a US oil company monopoly created by Calvin Coolidge and the Republican Congress in 1924. To get around the fact that monopolies are illegal in the USA and Canada all of the companies kept their original names to make it look like there was still competition. EXXON can trace its roots back to Standard Oil of New Jersey which was forced to break up its’ corporate structure by the US Government in 1911. The COMPANY [ Sta.Oil of NJ ] WAS CONVICTED OF MONOPOLIZING THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY THROUGH A SERIES OF ABUSIVE AND ANTICOMPETITIVE ACTIONS. Same thing is happening to-day.  These shenanigans had been going on for over 40 years prior to 1900.  This was the work of John D. Rockefeller, he was fined, big deal for a multi millionaire. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil ran 41 shadow companies to hide the fact that he had a monopoly [ by 1900 ]. Breaking up Standard in 1911 was just a temporary set back for Rockefeller. With the help of the Republicans John stitched the monopoly back together in the 1920. But he would be more careful this time and Washington was there to back him up.  Just think, Congress has been in the pay of the US oil cartel for almost 90 years. Little wonder that America is no longer a democracy. Rockefeller founded the University of Chicago, the right wing centre of the universe where Nietzsche, Hayek and Strauss are considered gods. An anti American establishment if there ever was one. Our University of Oil in Calgary is an exact copy of the U of Chicago only much smaller [ having the same anti democracy stance ]. Work to undermine Canada’s democratic institutions gets its’ sustenance from that University. This Nation’s major problems can all be traced to the U of Calgary with its’ ties to Chicago and the oil cartel.  My point is easy to prove. Just think Herr Harper, Tom Flanagan, Preston Manning, Danielle Smith, Ezra LeRant and the Fraser Institute. Who’s more front and centre?  What you see to-day is the same oil monopoly, still in operation after 90 years. It has been around that long stealing from the American public as well as Canada and other countries. The cartel owns Congress and Ottawa as well as the $ media in the USA and Canada. Almost everyone who shills for the Keystone XL is in the pay of the cartel. I am old fashioned enough to think those in the public eye should declare their conflict of interest. But Leo Strauss said no. Never tell the truth and never give the mob [ us ] a break. That shows weakness and the wimps must never show a weak side. Since Vivian Krause, Peter Foster, Lawrence Solomon, Jack Mintz and Terry Corcoron et al are on the cartel payroll I think Paul Godfrey should declare his conflict of interest. Maybe Godfrey could get Peter Foster to write something nice about Canada once in a while, like a single column a month. Would that be asking too much? The National Post is owned by a Wall St. hedge fund, illegal.  But you know Harper, breaking Canada’s laws is his specialty. In fact Lyin Steve has surrounded himself with criminals, think Conrad Black. The Post is the propaganda bulletin board for big oil and central casting for the disruptive right wing  forces in this Country.  Godfrey’s Post is a true Fifth Column pamphlet. That is the reason the Yank hedge fund bought the bankrupt Post, it is a way to brainwash our population using the back door and having us pay for the takeover. Every time you buy the Post you drive another nail in Canada’s coffin. This clandestine maneuver, taking over the $ media is so well known to the Americans. For the same thing has been used by the Yanks on countries  in Central and South America. Equally subversive are the think tanks so often quoted in the National Post and others, like Fraser, C. D. Howe, Manning, Frontier, Canada West, Macdonald-Laurier, Montreal Economic, Atlantic and Historica-Dominion Institutes. We might include the Dorchester Review in the right wing fronts funded by taxpayers and which are big oil / Harper oriented. You can break these rightie  propaganda mills into two categories. Those whose job it is to destroy Canada’s very foundation by constant negative political nattering and misimformation. And in the case of Historica- Dominion and Dorchester, they are rewriting the Country’s history using tax money as are all. Nice work if you can get it. We have a problem, Revenue Canada is so fixated on David Suzuki on orders from Lyin Steve that they have no time to investigate the above right wing subversive fronts. But the Budget may have just saved the day. Rev. Can. has now been given extra money to hire additional investigators. Surely they will investigate Historica- Dominion and the Manning / Fraser Institutes for starters? It will be easy peasy for Rev. Can. to nail all of these right wing  fronts for political activity. Check the PMO / E-Mails  received  by Brian Crowley –  Macdonald-Laurier, Niels Veldhuis – Fraser and all the others. This will instantly show these think tanks directly connected to the PMO and are breaking the law. Apparently Rev. Can. donates $ 15,000 to  whistleblowers. I’ve just whistle blowed on at least a dozen Fascist think tanks and rightie  historical fronts. I’m going to be rich. I’ll donate my money to Sunnybrook when all the Rev. Can. cheques come in. In my heart of hearts I know Rev. Can. is lying about paying whistleblowers. They’ll never pay out a cent. Now that Rev. Can. is an arm of the PMO, the centre of lying in this Country. How could the tax collectors do anything other than lie???

If you take away the things that bind Canadians together, Medicare, education, history, the right of free assembly, the right to a fair trial, a honest media, unions and humane treatment by the police where are we? And wipe away our heritage at the same time, then Harper, his Fascists and the oilies will have had us. Central to the destructive power of the aforementioned institutions relate to tax dollars and money from the US oil cartel. Bolstering these clandestine efforts is the surrender of our weak $ media to the almighty oilie cheque.  Godfrey’s Post is one of the worst offenders. These right wing fronts are sparsely staffed, attract very unattractive people like Niels Veldhuis and Tom Flanagan of the Fraser Institute. Or the Manning Institute with its’ links to the Civitas [ secret ] Society and neo Nazis / white supremacists / racist members.  The Canadian Taxpayers Federation has a membership of exactly 5, that is right five. The CTF claims more than 50,000 members which is just another big lie from the right. Just think of it. Just 5 people get constant exposure in the petro $ media. This is a danger to our democracy, yet this subversive activity is paid for using our tax dollars. Talk about the Fifth Column.  If I had to describe the biggest threat to Canada’s future it is the petro $ media. Rex Tillerson, the EXXON boss can get coverage any time he wants and turn off the $ media any time he wants. The public sees and hears what EXXON wants them to see and hear. Tillerson said the other day that he didn’t know why crude bitumen slurry spilled in Mayflower Arka. the other day. Rex is a liar. He is an engineer. Surprising that such  stupid statement would come out of Rex’s mouth. Mining tar laced with sand and chemicals, mixing it with lighter fluid and then ramming it down a pipe at high pressure is a series of serious accidents looking for places to happen. The abrasive quartz sand causes friction and wear away the inside of the pipe. The steel pipe is thinned and it runs very hot tp boot. Not 70 deg F like an oil pipe line but at 150 deg F. About the temp of the ring on your stove when you cook soup. You can’t put your hand on it. This high heat causes the tar / lighter fluid to gas off and that gas is lethal. Much like Hitler used in his gas chambers. The workers at Mayflower are all wearing Hazmat suits and resperators. Otherwise the gas would take out their lungs or kill them. And Tillerson, head of the largest / richest corporation on earth tells lies for $ 25 million a year. And the petro $ media says absolutely nothing while everything is there on the net. Now we find that the Federal Aviation Agency has declared Mayflower  a No Fly Zone at the request of Tillerson so the American public [ the world ] won’t be able to see what is going on. So Washington is once again bowing to Big Oil. But there is more to this story. The FAA has turned the administration of the No Fly Zone over to EXXON. So a private Company has been put in charge of a little slice of American airspace. What happen to any nosy parker? Are US Airforce jets going to be scrambled to shoot down the intruder. Or maybe Tillerson has his own private armed airforce? Can you imagine an American pilot being charged by the FAA for flying over Mayflower because EXXON doesn’t want people snooping on its’ reckless behaviour.  This is totalitarionism and the petro $ media remains silent. Those who who want to tell the other side of the story to that now being told by the far right have been shut out and silenced in the main stream media like the Globe and Oil / National Post. Rex send them money through the Heartland Institute. With the voices of dissenters now stilled in the $ press the only avenue to find out the truth is the internet. Who will sound the trumpet on the next crude bitumen spill masquarading as oil?  Or the next? And the next? And the next? Judge Allen Dodson of Faulkner County praised EXXON’s efforts cleaning up the [] O I L []. I wonder how much it cost Rex Tillerson to bring the good Judge onside? Dodson’s probably set for life now. In what camp will you be? A reader / viewer who believes the propaganda in the petro $ media and doesn’t become aware that the pipe line that runs through your town could rupture. And ruin your way of life, destroy your environment, contaminate your drinking water and even kill you and your kids. In other words, the Harper / Bush Jr. La La Land. Or will you keep yourself informed by accessing the net and put a stop to people like Rex Tillerson, Russ Girling and Al Monaco?  If the Fascists succeed in their efforts to throttle the net then we do indeed have a problem. What I fear most is that there are still many people who will go quietly to the cattle cars. It is very important for the future of Canada to have a free exchange of ideas and to support innovative people. I have said before that this Country is the place where ideas are born to die. EXXON [ and the rest of the cartel ] and big business spend tens of millions maintaining the status quo and stifling innovation. They fear creative destruction wherein the new idea replaces the old methods. The auto replaced the horse and buggy. In 20 years [ 1900 /1920 ] most of the buggy makers were gone. In London England the number of horse drawn taxis went from about 4000 down to 180 or so during that same period. In the countryside thousands of acres of farmland were dedicated to growing horse feed. All of a sudden farmers had to change to another crop. This process can be upsetting. So too the oil companies and major businesses in this Country would need to make major changes if nature and new ideas were allowed to flourish. So that is why the movers and takers spend so much money trying to alter public opinion by use the ever compliant captive $ press. The main battle in the present is the attack on Global Warming by the oilies. The petro $ media is overflowing with demented Climate Deniers like Peter Foster and Universities like Calgary and Carleton which are funded by the US oil cartel through the Heartland Institute [ which lost its' charity status as the Fraser / Manning should ] . But this attack on Green is a phony one. Rex Tillerson of EXXON can’t actually say publicly he wants to stop the move to hydrogen [ the fuel of the future ], alternative energy, less CO2 / pollutants, cheaper energy and personal choice in this regard by the people. So the US oil cartel fights climate change as a cover and a way to turn back the hands of time. This relentless campaign by Big Oil against progress has had some success. Peter Foster has written the same anti innovation /anti climate change column for years under the cover of attacking Gobal Warming. And the money hungry Paul Godfrey keeps printing this crap because his American master demand it. The oilies have framed the debate and the $ media does the rest. Anything that falls outside this rigged debate goes unspoken or unprinted in the press or onCTV. And a lot of Canadians have fallen for this spin hook, line and sinker. These are the type of  morons who don’t realize what is going on until they are behind the wire fence,  the padlock snaps and they have to deal with Jenni Bryne, she of the Commandant’s  jack boots. The media owners [ Star, Globe, Sun, Post, CTV, CFMX etc ], have sold us out but like all sociopathic  parasites they have no insight and do not realize, if we go they go too.  Pierre Peladeau / Moses Znaimer, both free enteprisers can’t wait to get their hands on taxpayers dollars to bolster their sagging businesses. I just don’t get it. Kill your customers and you don’t have a business any more?  How about you and I hanging around for awhile and getting rid of these media pests on the right. Maybe jail might suit them??? I suggest you do not buy the paper or frequent their web sites. Protest right wing propaganda like on CTV to the CRTC.  Pick up the news on the net on the CBC, the only place you will find honest reporting these days. Even TVO has succumbed to the corporate buck. Further, don’t watch CTV, Vision TV or Sun TV nor listen to CFMX or CFMZ. Further still, avoid their advertisers if you can. Send a message to their advertisers that you are not prepared to see your Country undermined by lies.  That you prefer the truth with your morning coffee.  Even if you can’t crank yourself up over the incessant right wing messaging and lying by the $ media. At least do this for your grandchildren.

To the many readers who have taken the time to comment on my blog, my regards. To make it very clear, everyone who visits my site is free to use the information contained herein anyway they so desire.  It is said, ” If one has the flame of knowledge, let others light their candles by it “. Please light your candle if you wish. This is a solo effort, no helpers. I do not accept As I put this post to bed there is a story on the news that there is a tar slurry spill [ DilBit ] in Arkansas. Authorities won’t let the media near the spill. This is so EXXON can bullshit the public and make up their own stories about non existant oil . EXXON has bought the national media off.  But the local papers are not on the Company’s payroll. This means the reporters around Mayflower Ark. are being barred by Tillerson because they might tell the truth. Go on the net and see the subdivision that was flooded with raw, toxic tar. These pictures are being sneaked out under the noses of authorities all in the pay of EXXON. Last week there was a CP train derailment in Minnesota which spilled DilBit but again it was off limits to the curious. People in these areas have been just left to suffer in silence. The larger public is not to know about these spills lest they get ideas and get restless. It is interesting that in Arkansas, Rex Tillerson said it wasn’t a DilBit spill [ they lied, it was ]. In Minnesota, CP Rail said it wasn’t a DilBit spill [ they lied, it was ]. The Enbridge spill in Kalamazoo was claimed to be an oil spill. Pat Daniel, CEO of Enbridge swore up and down it was not DilBit [ Daniel lied again, it was DilBit ]. Where are we when the CEO of a billion dollar Company will lie like that? The oilies got the IRS to designate this poison tar non taxable. So Washingtone knows Tillerson / Daniel are lying when they call these happenings oil spills. And $ media didn’t called Rex /Pat on their lies?  Of particular concern to us should be is the UNcaring attitude of Phil Crawley, the publisher of the Globe and Oil. At the very same time as people’s lives are being adversely affected by a DilBit attack in Arkansas [ covered by the Globe ] our boy Phil runs an article entitled, ” What the Keystone will mean to your portfolio “, by Lauren Krugel.  How’s that for being empathetic???  To Crawley and the Thomsons, the oilie buck trumps all. It is a wonder they don’t go into business making lamp shade from human skin like the Nazis? 

*********************************************************************************************************

And so to our WORLD RECORD BOOK OF OILIE LIES / THE HALL OF SHAME / THE ORDER OF DECEITFULNESS   —   I hope I can interest the Guinness people in this project. I got the idea for this book of lies looking at my stack of Keystone XL related newspaper clippings [ about 6 in high ].  About 95% of them are pro Keystone XL / pro Big Oil which shows a distinct bias in the $ media in favour of those with money. This US oil cartel media campaign does not follow the North American Fairness Doctrine which requires that both sides of any story be equally portrayed. What is going on in Canada in this regard approximates a police state. Many of these Keystone articles are reports by ancilliary oil businesses and associated firms like oil industry flacks, bankers, stock brokers, consultants, think tanks, lobbyists, propagandists and the like. For newspapers which survive based on PUBLIC circulation I find these circumstances very strange. The coverage in my file clippings is not fair comment, in fact there is absolutely no attempt to be balanced. It is as if the paper owners are schizophrenic [ the coexistence of incompatible elements within the same brain ]. It would seem that those promoting the Keystone can say just about anything they want. And it stands And it gets printed or broadcast. Most of these clippings contain lies both big and small as well as omissions. In many cases the facts are reassembled to give the opposite impression. Even the timelines are altered. Everyone bit of such misinformation has the potential to affect 90% of the population adversely economicwise. This is precisely the case in the high cost of gasoline which remains the same as when oil was $ 130 a barrel. The petro $ media says nothing.  The US oil cartel is screwing Canadians but good but who is interested in our financial pain. Ottawa? Ya right. Queen’s Park? Ya right.  But in some cases a spill can destroy the very way of life  for those who fall victim to the DilBit scourge. As in Arkansas [ EXXON   / liquified crude bitument mixed with lighter fluid ]. Newspapers need readers, to recklessly endanger their wellbeing by chasing away customers for the almighty oil buck strikes me a tad short sighted. As the internet takes over, newspapers are in sharp decline. The net and a disregard for their loyal readers has seal the fate of the press as we have known it. That loyal readership is bailing out on an individual basis and that is a good thing. And not as moment too soon. That $ media is in the process of destroying democracy in North America. The USA has already succumbed. Canada is following suit. In my view it is this low regard and abuse of the very customers they are supposed to serve that is hastening their demise? It has got to be on the part of the press, the,  ” get it while you can ” , approach by the newsies. It has certainly been a great payday for the newspaper particulary since September 2011 when the Keystone XL project first made the headlines. In terms of the lies, there are tons. My background is that of a mechanic and a techie. One of my sayings over the years has been if man can invent it, I can fix it. I respect the right of an individual to be pro Keystone but don’t tell me lies and make things up to take money out of my pockets and put it in yours. Joe Oliver made the famous statement about drinking out of a tailing pond. It is the kind of thing a kid of 8 would say. It is so stupid it is stupid. The $ media said nothing. Tailing ponds are the result of toxic waste that comes from the tar sands being parked in a convenient hole in the ground. We did away with outdoor privies 75 years ago. Why are they back. The answer is the US oil cartel and lots of money being spread around to a lot of brainless people like those at the University of Calgary who are into oil money laundering. The water, laden with chemicals, poisons and heavy metals is put into temporary holes in the ground which are carelessly constructed. Little regard is given to the possiblity of this toxic brew escaping into the environment. The idea is that over time the heavier materials sink to the bottom and then the water can be siphoned off. The one reason tailing ponds exist is to boost EXXON’s profits. It is like stacking up bags of garbage  inside your rented house full in the knowledge you will not be staying long. The idea the US oil cartel has is that when they move out [ which is right about now ] somebody else will have to pay to clean up the tailing ponds and the rest of the mess The cleaner uppers, probably YOU AND THE OTHER TAXPAYERS IN NORTH AMERICA? It is interesting that these tailing ponds are not allowed by law in the USA. A small tar sands operation in the central States uses centrifuges [ like an automatic washer ]. The toxic mix is spun at hi speed, the water is thrown off and the solids captured. The water is then filtered and used again. The solids contain heavy metals. These metals are of such value that they pay for the centrifuges and  their operation. I have been writing for years that the Alberta tar sands could be cleaned up, put on a sustainable path and be made even more profitable, legally. But the US oil cartel has a dirty way of doing everything and they will continue on that path till the Government puts a stop to it. Or we put a stop to this Government.  Oliver is some Minister of the Crown. An 8 year old in a man’s suit but dangerous to Canada. He said the other day that California’s bitumen creates more pollution than our’s. That is true, but the refinery in San Francisco gets that Canadian bitumen from the Kinder Morgan pipe line that endangers BC’s Burrard Inlet every day.  Joe doesn’t know what the hell he is talking about. The trick now that the cartel is leaving, is to assess the cost of cleaning up all the tailing ponds using centrifuges. Against such a process we should seize the assets of the major oil players in Canada to ensure they pay to get rid of  THEIR toxic brew. If you have been reading me on this subject of the rape of the environment by the US oil cartel I have highlighted any number of lies besides Oliver’s offer to drink from a tailing  pond. I will highlight two more big fibs that are more recent. TVO, Ontario’s public station that I have been attacking for years is once again in the news. The main reason is that the station is the official Devious Dalt / Liberal Party bulletin board. When Ontarians needed the straight goods TVO / Steve Paikin delivered McGuinty spin. In the last couple of days it has come to light that TVO is featuring a video game app called Pipe Trouble directed at the brain washing the kids. This app apparently takes a hard look at the pipeline business and all of the possibilities. There can be spills [ true, way too many ], people can be made sick or die [ true ], a pipe can be sabotaged [ true ] and the need for the pipe company to find the most economical route and screw the environment / the neighbours [ true ]. But whatever the video cost it was a waste of money and the TVO’s approach was appalling.  This video tried to score cheap points when there is a real story here and there are solutions.These are the thing we should be discussing with the kids. I want Lisa de Wilde head, she must should resign. It just proves that those who are at the extremes of the  pro / anti Keystone control the agenda and neither position will solve the problems. Cooler heads and voices that promote the intelligent / middle way are shut out of the debate. We will be heard. Most of the population is in the middle too but they are very much limited to the yes / no extremes by a compliant petro $ media. However the net is changing that. The petro $ media, being totally subscribed by the oil cartel / pipe lines is now in full voice condemning TVO and the video. One Brenda Kenny, Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Energy Pipe Line Association has gone ballistic over TVO’s Pipe Trouble video. Some weeks back I saw Brenda interviewed on TV. She either lied or was evasive on every question asked. There was much in the news then about the billion dollar Enbridge spill in Kalamazoo Mich. and the 800 previous spills that the Company was responsible for over the past 10 years. Brenda was sent to cover up and showed no concern for the people affected by liquified crude bitumen in Mich.  Kenny’s appearance was all about bullshiting Canadians on behalf of the oilies, not about enlightening us. Since that time Brenda has written in the same vein [ one piece was in the Post ], to purposely confuse and misinform yet again. I was puzzled by Kenny’s violent response to this silly video, the petro $ media has also gone insane on cue. I have decided that they have become so used to being the only team on the ice and able to shoot pucks into our empty net that to have someone with the audacity to skate onto the ice and take a shot at their net has unhinged the oilies, the pipies and the $ media. I can understand their displeasure. After all the cartel have paid tens of millions to buy every segment of the petro $ media in order to hog the spotlight and tell their tale of fantasy  exclusively. Of particular interest to me is Brenda Kenny’s half page CEPA ad in the Globe and Oil on March 15 /13. It purports to provide us with a thumbnail sketch of the history of pipe lines in Canada. It is a sanitized view of the 3 pipe line Companies, TransNotCanada, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan. This history relates to BDB [ Before Diluted Bitument ] and is no longer relevant. We now live in the age of After Diluted Bitumen [ ADB ] which is the reason for all of the toxic spills and clouds of poisous gas. The 3 Companies above are all now transporting tar slurry mixed with lighter fluid behind the backs of the  brain dead or paid off authorities [ take your pick? ]. Isn’t it interesting that there is no other place in the world having the proliferation of spills that we are having in Canada and the USA. No place else would allow the pumping of raw tar through pipelines meant for refined oil. In the last few days the American Senate vote to support the Keystone XL. The ten Republican Senators who sponsored said Bill were paid $ 31 million by the oil cartel. Coming back to Brenda Kenny’s ad in the Globe, it had a map of Canada. Shown were the 3 major pipe lines of TC, En. and K-M, all in this Country. The problem is that the Enbridge pipe drops down into the US in Saskatchewan and skirts south of Chicago on its’ way to Sarnia. Most of their line is in America. And the 3 Companies are owned by Wall St.  That is where the Kalamazoo Mich. spill took place. Kenny doesn’t want you to find out the real story Brenda’s picture was doctored to fool the readers of the Globe, nothing new for Phil Crawley. They call it Photoshopping. Enbridge used the same technique to show the shoreline at Kitimat BC. Al Monaco remove all of the rocky islands. This nothing new. The Ontario nukies have produced many pictures of the Pickering Nuclear Plant with swimmers, sunbathers and boaters on beaches that don’t exist. The worldwide nuclear industry does the same thing. Creating photoshopped activities around nuclear plants that never happened and would not be allowed is a danger to our society.  Tom Mitchell, CEO, OPG, who gets $ 1.7 million a year from Ontarians is responsible for these doctored pictures. I was a Pickering Councillor when that nuclear plant was built. Mitchell can’t fool me.  I know these phantom beaches around the plant do not exist. What next, people who disagree being taken in the middle of the night by the OPP. Mitchell gets away with this nonsense  because the Star prints the pics without comment. Oh yes, our dear devious Dalt McGuinty got his house free from the nukies. The energy sector is just rotten to the core. Hold your MP’s / MPP’s feet to the fire. YOU either regain control of Parliament and Queen’s Park or we lose Canada by default.  The last of my trio who have been spreading lies about the Keystone is Gary Doer, Can. Ambassador to the USA. Gary, from the west should know better. He has been spreading critical stories about Venezuela. My guess is that there is now a realization by Herr Harper that the death of Hugo Chavez has changed the oil game. If the oil pump is turned on again in Venezuela that Country’s heavy crude [ OIL ] is just 4 days away from Port Arthur Texas and 10 days away from the California refineries. This supply would eliminate the need for the Keystone XL, the Gateway and the Kinder Morgan TransMountain pipe through BC. There is a lot of scrambling on the part of the Harperites. Placing all our eggs in one basket as Lyin Steve has done has puts Canada’s economy at risk. And our economy IS FAILING.  Gary has been bad mouthing Venezuela, not realizing 80% of the oil that is imported into Eastern Canada comes from Venezuela. I guess that Doer, a one time NDPer has gone to live with Harper in his La La Land too? How much money did Doer get?  Joe Oliver, Brenda Kenny, David Collyer, Russ Girling, Pat Daniel, Al Monaco and now Gary Doer are all of a piece. The are all liars who seem to think they can say anything and not get caught. And they all think that taking a few bob here and there will in no way damage the Country as a whole?  The petro $ media is paid to print or broadcast their lies without question. Mind you Herr Harper lies every day so why shouldn’t his hirlings and the simple minded around him?  Now if the above want to know a little bit about the truth, all they have to do is read my blog.  I am sure some have already been informed of the existence of the Geeman. What you are reading now will  no doubt be placed in my dossier by Harper’s Gestopo Chief, Tim Powers. Now let’s get to the inductees who will enter into the Media Hall of Shame. The 60 journoshill [ approx ] and media outlets named put money ahead of their Country and duty. They have carried the dissemination of false and misleading information in a democracy to new heights. Every one of them piling on like wild animals tearing at a carcass. The level of misinformation clearly equals that seen in Nazi Germany.  Our media, in so many cases omitted critical material from stories they write. And I must say their lies pushed the limits far beyond anything Canadians have experienced before. Those listed, who engaged in this mountain of lies were motivated by the almighty oilie buck, one way or the other. And from another angle the offenders obviously never thought they would get caught. Much like the Wall St. insiders. I’ve got a ton of clippings going back to Sept. /11 which bear witness to their lies about the Keystone. Liquified crude bitumen has been the story from day one, sand laced tar slurry being put through oil pipes that can’t take it. Much like trying to carry gravel in a plastic shopping bag.  If I can get the cooperation of the Guinness people I have about another 250 names of writers who have sold Canada out on the Keystone. They too qualify for the Order of Media Deceitfulness.

**********************                                                                                                                                           **********************

This list is taken from a handful of clippings and interviews on TV on the tar sands / Keystone / Gateway which occured since Xmas. More than a year’s worth of such clipping / interviews have yet to be scrutinized in this regard. If the Guinness people respond favourably a couple hundred more names could be added to the E-Book of Shame. Those listed below can be divided into two groups. Some of those involved in furthering these oilie lies are just, well stupid. A simple trip to the net would reveal the truth to them. But it is trip they refuse to take. Just afraid to leave home I guess. Or warned by their employers / masters to stay away from the net. The other bunch are experienced journalist / commentators  who know exactly what they are doing. Telling lies in return for a cheque from the US oil cartel. These are the despicable ones. Selling out their Country for a mess of pottage. One interesting fact is that the internet will outlive all of those on this list. Even the media listed will disappear shortly. Telling lies is not a product that has much of a future. North American democracy will disappear or it will regain its’ former glory. In either case the media will no longer be needed. Having helped in the destruction of this society or having been discarded as irrelevant to a new beginning. Unless Ottawa and Washington seizes the net and imposes censorship like the Nazis my posts will live on. In either case those who come after the names below will be able to read that their forebearers had a hand in destroying democracy in return for an oilie cheque. Or that they were on the wrong side when Canada regained its’ economic  footing. I have read each article from which these names are taken and circled the lies. For TV interviews I made notes.  With each name I have tried to establish who they are and their qualifications for commenting on the tar sands / Keystone. I especially look for Americans [ they are welcome to visit but they should keep their bloody traps shut. I am glad to seen my favourite Yankee draft dodger and perv Tom Flanagan finally silenced ]. I did a background check on each one listed to ascertain their qualifications to speak out in this tar sands / Keystone debate [ not one listed below has any expertise on the subject ]. Some of those who I have named are unknowns. I suspect they are interns working for the media free or for minimal pay because they are offered a chance to establish their writer credentials. The petro $ media is still raking in billions. What the media moguls are doing is akin to the mine owners in England [ 1800s ] who sent children down into the mines. The $ media hires the best sports / auto writer. But hires certifiable dummies to cover the most important story of our times. For the young,  jobs are tough to find right now mainly due to the right wing economics being pushed by Herr Harper. Big business is taking advantage of the plight of novice journalists. Imagine a 20 year old writing lies for the US oil cartel for free when said cartel stole more than $ 100 billion from the people of Alberta in 2010. So what we are left with is the Canadian $ media which is totally committed [ paid huge sums ] to the cause of the oil cartel. Balanced reporting has vanished and the Harper Government has done nothing but encourage the press to mislead us. My investigations into background will continue. Finding Americans among the writer and commentators is of great interest.  Lyin Steve is busy dismantling our democracy with the help of the following  jouroshills and commentators.  Here is my Shame List, with many more to come.

Each of the afformentioned writer has produced more than one article, I am sure. How many might that be/ double their number, say 125 or more? IS THIS THE CANADIAN WAY? FOR OUR NEWSPAPERS, TO TELL THE ONE SIDED STORY OF THE TAR SANDS AND THE KEYSTONE IN THIS MANNER.  125 TO NOTHING IN FAVOUR OF TRANSPORTING  DILBIT / SAND LACED, TOXIC GAS, TAR SLURRY BY PIPE LINE?  This from the quartet that threatens our democracy, our freedom, our prosperity and most important of all, the future of our children and grandkids.  Those who endanger our very life are the Harper Government, the US oil cartel, the Wall St. owned pipe line companies and our own petro $ media. Of particular interest  to me is Paul Godfrey’s National Post which is illegally owned by a New York hedge fund. This Paper produced most of the false and misleading articles in my survey. I would think this domination of the media by the oil cartel easily matches the control of the press seen in Nazi Germany [ 125 to zip ].  Geobbels said if you repeat a lie often enough the people come to believe it is the truth. On the subject of Keystone all we see and hear are lies.  Godfrey is having considerable success with his publishing of oilie lies. On climate change Peter Foster write about 3 columns a week, all the same, attacking Green. Only the names are changed to smear as many left leaning critters as Peter possiblycan.  The citizenry shows signs that this brainwashing is having an effect.  Canadians who oppose the tar sands and the Keystone project are branded as eco terrorists by Herr Harper, Joe Oliver and his press hirlings. Since Premier Redford was elected the above howling mob has never let up on her. They along with that right wing robot Danielle Smith blame the Preem for every ache and pain experienced in Alberta. When there are no news stories they just make things up like Ezra Le Rant does. There is no level playing field for news in this Country because Harper has stolen the field entirely. The only place Premier Redford receives respect and fair treatment is on the CBC. Little wonder that Harper wants to destroy the CBC. The first thing that totalitarian states do is close down the TV / radio stations and smash the printing presses. Hitler burned books. The fly in the ointment for Lyin Steve is the net. The question, is will Harper be able to make us disappear before we break him. Stay tuned. Premier Redford is actually the key to Canada’s future. I think this is why Harper’s minions and the US oil cartel are attempting in every which way to discredit Redford. Just think how much money it costs the US oil cartel to pay for these 60 people [ plus media outlets ] [ and possible 250 more ] to sing exclusively from the oilie song book. It just shows how much money the Americans make out of our Western Provinces? Canada gives it resources away for free. Bright people we.  And to ad insult to injury we are willingly  paying to craft the very  noose they will be use to snuff us out. Lemmings. Maybe?

*********************************************************************************************************

END NOTES   —   The Pew Institute [ a right wing think tank masquarading as a  neutral charity just like the Fraser Int. in Canada]  has just produced a massive study on the Keystone XL project. Pew said 66% of Americans want Russ Girling’s Keystone pipe line of death. I would ask 3 questions about this smelly poll. What questions were asked? Who was called [ right wingers and Repubs only? ] .  And was this polling done since the big EXXON crude bitumen spill in Mayflower Arkansas? It is interesting that in the Canadian newspaper listed above all kinds of good news oil stories / propaganda have suddenly appeared after Mayflower?  Could it be to divert our attention???  The areas around Fort McMurry are called tar sands, always have, always will be. The US oil cartel marketing people have renamed them the oil sands [ illegal ]. Crude bitumen whether mixed with lighter fluid or not can’t be called oil. The US Congress pressured the IRS to exempt crude bitumen being sent through an oil pipe from taxes. So the Government in Washington knows what is in those pipes and what is going to be in any new pipe lines like Keystone XL. The IRS would need to monitor the contents of the pipe lines to levy oil taxes. In the present bitumen spill in Mayflower Arka. EXXON is not reponsible under law. They are not pumping oil under the law.  But EXXON, the local authorities and the petro $ media are all calling what was spilled  [] O I L []. It is the Chevy VOLT syndrome. It is a hybrid but advertised by the $ media as an electric car. It proves my point. Pay the $ media enough money and you can say anything.  All of the insiders in Arkansas who are being paid off are perpetrating a lie just like those listed above. The only way you can protect yourself from a lethal toxic gas cloud that comes from hot bitumen is for Ottawa to pass legislation that requires all crude bitumen be processed in an upgrader no farther than 25 miles from the mine site. Bitumen diluted with lighter fluid pumped through a pipe that run 150 deg F  [ caused by the sand abraiding the steel pipe on the inside ] can create a lethal gas if it escapes. This gas can kill just like that used by the Nazis to exterminate PEOPLE in the shower stalls. North America to-day can be compared with Hitler’s Germany. Freedom of the press [ which no longer exists here ] really relates to the owners being free to sell out to the highest bidder. And the gas that can kill is being transported all over the continent for one reason, and one reason only, money. This, to enrich EXXON, the rest of the US oil cartel and Wall St., which owns the pipe lines. I have to mention something else that should be of concern. Herr Harper, his Fascists and the petro $ media are also benefiting for the toxic tar wealth. Such under the table oil cash allows Tim Powers, Harper’s Gestapo Chief to begin an attack campaign on Justin Trudeau. Although he has yet to win anything . When those ads start you can thank the US oil cartel. The FAA has declared a No Fly Zone over Mayflower Arka. to ensure that the common folk do not  get a bird’s eye view the toxic / oilie mess EXXON has created [ go on the net ]. But as said the FAA has put EXXON in charge of the No Fly Zone which is a violation of public airspace. Giving a private company jurisdiction over everybody’s skies is outrageous. Rex Tillerson said he doesn’t know why the spill happened, that is clearly a lie. So the CEO of the biggest corporation in the world stoops to the level of a common dissembler. Being an engineer Rex knows exactly what is going on. The crude bitumen is being mined in northern Alberta in the dirtiest manner possible with little consideration for the environment and the people of the Province. These resources are in a sense being stolen. The Alberta Government seems powerless to stop the thefts because Herr Harper is facilitating the cartel’s actions. The crude bitumen is liquified by mixing it with lighter fluid so that it can be pumped through an OIL PIPE LINE. The quartz sand in the tar abraides the inside of the steel pipe as it flows at high pressure. This friction cause the pipes to heat up [ a normal pipe containing oil runs at 70 deg F ] [ liquified crude bitumen runs at 150 deg F ]. The quartz sand destroys the spill sensors and warning system so there is no alarm if a rupture takes place. TransNot Canada, Enbridge and Kinder Morgan are all lying about spill protection and  response time. There isn’t any. The Companies are fooling the public and fooling the investors. The only way a spill will be noticed is if the molten tar begins running down your street or the kids are marooned in the play house in the back yard and begin screaming.  Tillerson knows all this. He knew that there was lethal gas in those pipes of his running through that subdivision Arkansas and so lie after lie. Rex knows the numbers and the risk to life and limb, putting dilBit in oil pipe lines will increase the likelyhood of a rupture by at least 4 time. He knows the any tar cleanup will cost 10 times what an oil spill costs. When Tillerson talks about an oil spill he knows it is tar because he doesn’t pay any taxes on transporting liquified crude bitumen. Rex know when the tar slurry arrives in the  tax free zone inTexas it will be refine, turned into gasoline, jet fuel or diesel and shipped out, exported. Americans will not see a drop of gas. From the tar sands down to Texas the Republican Congress has ensured that EXXON will pay no  taxes. So the USA gets no financial benefit from the EXXON tar, only problems. Neither does Canada. Since this hazardous material being sent through oil pipe lines is sure to cause ruptures everyone along the lies is at risk, dollarwise and healthwise. Albertans who supply the crude bitumen only get 8% of the take. Having only one customer, the cartel it will set the price on a take it or leave it basis. In the past the US oil cartel has cheated Alberta out of royalties. What room is there to complain? Hewers of wood and drawers of water in the Province should thank their lucky start they can put food on the table. What is most gslling about Rex Tillerson, who got pay of $ 25 million in 2011, is that he would put the average citizen and his Country at serious risk just to make money.  Rex has cheated his Nation out of hard to come by taxes. Paying the Republicans off can bring with it huge benefits. EXXON made $ 40 billion in 2011 cheating widows, orphans and working people. Tillerson got a 17% raise and his management team voted themselves hefty bonuses. All on the backs of the little people who have no defenders, Congress, the White House, the State’s Houses and the US Supreme Court. So Nietzsche. The masters and the little people. For the self proclaimed exceptional people the oil momnopoly comes in very handy.  I have been a mechanic / builder all my life. Whether it is an aeroplane or a house there are rules that protect the citizenry. And penalties if the rules are not followed. The Republicans say, ” we have the money so we make the rules “. With Rex and EXXON there are no rules. If there are, Tillerson makes them up. I would give Rex a bit of a break is he was just another dumb executive. But he is an engineer and knows exactly what the dangers are. Rex calls us illiterate but he is the illiterate one. Tillerson is knowingly putting his country men / women and their children a grave risk. Monopolies come to an end, sometimes violently. Tillerson is playing with other people’s lives, their credit cards and there is no future in such activities. Washington should have put a stop to EXXON long ago,when the Valdez went aground.  By the way, the full bill for the Alaskan oil [ not DilBit ] spill has never been paid. The reason EXXON is allowed to trample all over the American Countryside is that the company has bought off Congress and many States politicians.  One of two things is going to happen. If this abuse is allowed to continue, it will only get worse. There will be lives lost, property damage and the environment will affected. The Americans will have to confront EXXON, the Yanks will get the Company or the Company will get them. As I have said Ottawa has to ban the transportation of liquified crude bitumen. It is responsible for at least a thousand spill over ten years. Time to prove it safe. On the other hand we have an opportunity to break free of the US oil cartel and create a made in Canada energy system. Namely Premier Redford’s NES, pooling the Province’s resources. Put simply each Province has an Ace. Together they have ten Aces. By joining forces each of those Aces doubles in value [ at least ]. The first order of business is to get  Harper and his gang  out of Ottawa. Then we can begin to rebuild Canada minus American exploitation and interference. Or do we continue to bow to the likes of Rex Tillerson??? And see our society wither?

*********************************************************************************************************

FINAL THOUGHT   —   The Globe and Oil is faring better then the other newspapers in the Toronto area. In the last half dozen years the circulation of the Star is down about 40% and the Post and Sun down about 30%. The Globe is down about 8%. It is a business paper and ignores about two thirds of the population which is seen and treated like cannon fodder. News stories are slanted toward business and many such pieces contain stock quotes. I remember an interview with a stock broker in New York City. He and 6 pals were in a building just down the street from the Twin Towers which were hit by air liners and collapsed. Their conversation centred around whether the stock market would go up or down. Yes Virginia there are such people and many of them are featured in the Globe. It is the Nietzsche Cult of self. The market is overflowing with wimps who have self declared themselves exceptional people [ like Herr Harper ]. Therefore they are elevated above the mob [ us ]. If you look at the pictures of many of those making comment about the stock market in the Globe, they can’t be over 30. They are green horns who just spout the usual right wing nonsense that is now taught at business schools. I read the odd column and I find it sad that so many of them are on the wrong track, probably marked for life. There is within the Globe a sense of the never, never Land which can only operate when there are plenty of  UNinformed suckers at hand. Whose ranks the paper works hard to maintain. So I am going to put my stock broker hat on. Now I have never bought a stock. I always operated businesses and said over the years to people, if I have any spare cash I invest it in my own enterprises. So my ignorance about the market puts me on a par with with the Globe stock writers. This post is about the Keystone project, the oil and natural gas business and Global Warming. I think it is appropriate to give you a couple of stock tips. Russ Girling, CEO of TransNotCanada Pipe Lines [ who lies almost as much as Harper ] will finance the Keystone on the backs of suckers. I truly believe that some suckers have brains. The Keystone will carry liquified crude bitumen, the same hazardous material involved in Mayflower Arka., Minnesota, Alberta and Kalamazoo Mich. What you see is what will come from the Keystone at some stage. Now the spilled tar is bad enough for the environment but it is the poisonous gas released when a pipe ruptures. For citizens caught close it will be like entering a Nazi gas chamber. The authorities in Canada and the US  should have put a stop to the transporting of this very dangerous tar slurry. There have been more than enough spills to understand the threat to humans [ especially the old / young ] . My count would be more than 1000 spills over ten years, 99% of them go unreported in the petro $ media. This under reporting for oil money is the main reason this matter is not now in hand. Ottawa and Washington will not move to challenge people like Rex Tillerson until their feet are held to the fire. But the mob can’t raise hell if they are UNinformed. So if the petro $ media is able to keep a tight lid on spill stories [ in return for cash ] and the internet observers are banned from each accident site like EXXON has done at Mayflower then enough suckers might be found to invest in the Keystone. But here is my warning. If liquified crude bitumen continues to be transported by pipe line the ruptures will occur again and again. Eventually innocent people will be killed and there will be citizen uprisings which the petro $ media will be unable to stop with their weasel words. All shipping of tar slurry will be stopped and the Keystone will become a ghost pipe. The stock of which will be worthless. And there will be no point going after Russ Girling, he’ll be long gone, to the Cook Islands. maybe? So buy Keystone stock at your peril? In terms of the tar sands. Now that is the legal name since tar doesn’t become oil until it goes through an upgrader [ an IRS ruling ]. Anyone who invests in the oil business in Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba think Hugo Chavez. His death has changed the dynamics of the oil business. There is much discussion about this on the net but none in the Globe. Phil Crawley wants you to remain stupid so you are easy pickings. Venezuela has huge reserves of oil from light to heavy to crude bitumen.  I have not found anyone on the net who is predicting where we are going with this. The new Venezuelan Government needs good relations with the US. The American oil cartel needs access to Venezuelan oil fields. The major impediment to a deal in the last 12 years has been Chavez. Venezuela is only 4 days from Texas and there is no poisonous gas / spill problem. The US already buys a large amount of Ven. oil through third parties so cranking up exports to Texas / California would be fairly easy. If the Americans reestablish oil relations with Venezuela then the market for Canadian oil and crude bitumen will be no more. I am sorry for western natural gas interests. They have been double crossed by Enbridge and TransNotCanada. Both Companies are now getting natural gas from Michigan and Pennsylvania and selling it to Ontario and Quebec as if the gas was coming from Alberta [ at Alberta prices ]. The Ontario Energy Board is letting them get away with this cheating. I would suggest that investors stay away from Western oil and natural gas stocks, particularly Enbridge and TransNotCanada. Now the present market is based on carpetbaggers showing up in Canada to rape the countryside. Investors who shell out money to them hope that there is a quick killing to be made. The news to-day covers many fast buck artists who get caught with their hands in the cookie jar. Not too many though. Just enough to convince the larger public that the loaded dice [ stocks ] are not loaded. Martha Stewart was thrown under the bus by Wall St.[ she after all is a woman ] to make the NY Stock Exchange look honest [ which it is not ]. Flaherty’s budget is in shambles due to the loss of oil / nat. gas markets in the west. Harper’s fixation with Hayek is leading us to ruin. The more he pushes, the more it doesn’t work. Now if the Provinces get their heads together [ Premier redford's NES ] and pool their resources this would allow public / private cooperation. I believe a steady return on investment in the west would be welcomed by the private sector. A secure business environment and no surprises would be a big change. By controlling all of Canada’s resources the Province’s will be able to establish a development schedule on a grander scale than that possible with private companies. Provincial control would also allow the elimination of cheaters like Enbridge and TransNotCanada. This supply management approach would level the playing field and permit honest businessmen and women a fighting chance. So there is my advice. Avoid oil and natural gas stocks until the Province’s clean up the act. And hold Lyin Steve’s feet to the fire. Better yet throw him in.

GRIDLOCK NO. ONE / ONTARIO LEGISLATIVE REPORT / KATHLEEN WYNNE’S WIN / FINALLY A RAY OF HOPE / A TINY SPECK OF LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL FOR OUR PROVINCE 12/02/13

  • GOODBYE LIBERAL INSIDERS   —   Kathleen Wynne’s victory has put the blocks to the Liberal Party machine. Devious Dalt’s friend’s, who have grown fat feeding off taxpayer’s wallets were confident that the leadership structure would keep them firmly ensconsed. 25% of the leadership delegates were ex officio, appointed by the Party [ the fix was in ]. What this ex officio nonsense did was give the Liberal  insiders the ability to eliminate any candidate who proved to be too much of an outsider and who posed a threat to THEIR control. This is the same system used by Tim Hudak’s Fascists [ remember I am a Progressive Conservative, not a Harper or Hudak Fascist ].  Those who surrounded McGuinty had never been elected to anything, not even a fence viewer. And yet collectively, with Dalt’s help they ruled the Province for PERSONAL GAIN. In due course they should be singled out and punished. Sandra Pupatello was the machine candidate. The Iron Lady said the Prorogation was inconsequencial and she would bring the MPPs back when she was damn good and ready. Of course she isn’t describing what a democracy is meant to be.  But then again what did Dalt and his spineless friend, David Onley, L. G. care about our  democracy???  Did you know that Pupatello would have become Ontario’s first Fuhrer? The Liberal machine knew that if an election was held tomorrow they would get wumped. Having Sandra delay the recall of the Legislature as long as she possibly could would have given Dalt and his Junta time to engineer some kind of scheme to retain power [ in other words short changing the electorate in some fashion ]. With David Onley in office, any assault on our society was and is okay by him. The matter of Prorogation was the major fly-in-the-ointment for Ontario. In the right wing $ media the closing of the Legislature hardly got a mention.  In fact there was one call to do away with the House altogether.  McGuinty didn’t level with Onley. Our poor L. G. was not told of Dalt’s resignation before Prorogation was obtained. Onley true to his character or lack there of,  let out not a bleep when he found he had been misled. Dalt announced Prorogation to a Liberal Party machine meeting of about 30 people. Even his own Liberal MPPs were left out of the loop. The rules of the House require Prorogation TO BE ANNOUNCED IN THE ASSEMBLY BY THE GOVERNMENT HOUSE LEADER AT WHICH TIME AN APPROX DATE FOR RECALL HAS TO BE GIVEN. Them’s the rules.  McGuinty ignored the Rules of the Assembly, David Onley again said nothing. Devious Dalt then publicly spilled the details of his private conversation with Onley and put his own spin on their exchange. That is a no, no. But you know our David Onley? As usual, he remained silent. Then King Dalt went to Onley a couple of days ago to OFFICIALLY RESIGN AS PREMIER. You thought the ex Preem had bailed 4 months ago didn’t you? Not. The $ media stated as much, they were paid with our money by Dalt to play a part in the flim flam. But no, McGuinty continued to reign as Premier [  illegitimately ] without having to deal with the pesky Legislature [ our elected members ]. Including his own Liberal sheep [ MPPs ].  Onley just smiled and bowed. Queen Elizabeth might as well have given Dalt a rubber stamp. While the $ media which had been bought off by McGuinty remained mum, the Prorogation issue turned into a fire storm on the net. In terms of the importance of the internet in to-day’s world, devious D. and the Liberal Party machine are totally ignorant. Since coming to power McGuinty has spent tens of millions [ of your money ]  with the $ media on buying nonsense ads [ saying things like breathing is important etc ]. These are the advertisements you see on TV and in the papers which are mostly white space, meaningless text and with the Ont. logo [  Trillium ]. Such ads even appear in small town newspapers. The nukies and the OPP do the same thing with OUR MONEY. Now if you own a media outlet you know that if you write or broadcast anything that is critical of McGuinty your name comes off the advertiser’s  list. The question is, are you as a hard pressed business owner going to risk the loss of tens of thousands of ad dollars by being critical of Dalt, the Prov. Liberals, the gas plants, Ornge, payoff to transNotcanada or telling the truth. Lying pays much better, so of course you are going to lie to your readers / viewers in return for a Government cheque drawn on the taxpayer’s account. Hitler controlled the press by force. McGuinty and his pals control the $ media with advertising paid for on the people’s nickel. If you read a newspaper / Mclean’s or watch TV on the important matters then you are being lied to [ CBC not included ].  In terms of McGuinty, he was absolutely spot on and made the right move. The $ media did just what he paid them to do, they ignored Prorogation and the public outcry. Those who depend on the $ media for their info must have concluded that other Ontarians had little interest in the matter, even though Dalt /Dave extinguished democracy in this Province. On the net however the protest raged. Finally David Onley became aware that the citizens were out for his blood and he realized that those with pitchforks were assembling.  Having bought up or neutered the press, McGuinty had not purchased the hiding place for himself or his sidekick Onley, as he had planned.  Prorogation was a big deal with the voters on the internet but no deal at all in the $ media. It shows the existing divide between the old [ 1970s ] and the new [ 2013 ]. Politicians on the right, big business, pipe lines, the US oil cartel, the nukies and the $ media are oblivious to the net. They still live in the past when the $ media was the only info game in town.  In any event, chickenshit Onley was afraid to face the internet protesters. David did however grant a creampuff interview with Martin Regg Cohn of the Toronto Star.  Cohn joined the Star before the last Provincial election to polish McGuinty’s apples for him. Martin was the perfect pick to spin the Onley story and help him avoid the slings and arrows being directed at him by the majority of Ontarians on the net. Being interviewed by and hiding behind the Star was pure genius. This attack on Prorogation, that was taking place on the net was strangely answered in a Newspaper, the Star. Although  Honderich / Star along with the other papers had remained silent on Prorogation. But the Tor. Star is being paid extra by the Liberals to whitewash Onley. Because so goes Onley, so goes devious Dalt.  Democracy only counts with the $ media when they can make money out of it. Quite something. This, the press being paid using our tax dollars by McGuinty to NOT DO OR SAY ANYTHING.  Who pray tell stands on guard for we???  It shows that Dalt and the Liberal Machine don’t understand the internet and would prefer to see us bellyachers just go away. Now we come to Wynne’s win which was NOT supposed to happen. Pupatello was the choice of the Machine, the old boy’s club had everything fixed with the ex officio officials or so they thought. Cock sure of  THEIR CHOICE, SANDRA WAS NOT THE DULY ELECTED DELEGATE’S CHOICE.  But a lot of the ex officio were themselves plugged into the citizen uprising on the outside and on the net. These smart Liberals said to themselves,  holy shit, are we ever in big trouble. McGuinty and his Junta just kept on adaydreaming. The convention, though supposedly rigged by the machine gave Kathleen the victory. Since that time Pupatello has shown her true colours, by being loud as usual, mouthing it up and being very divisive.  Wynne and the Liberals are now sitting under 30% support.  If Pupatello had triumphed the Libs would be at 10%  but with no House or an election in sight. I think the fear of the loss of democracy / Prorogation boosted Kathleen over the top. It was she who promised to recall the Legislature quickly. Her delegates responded in a desperate move to stave off  their complete annihilation. Wynne saved Onley from a fate worse than death also. I have a suggestion for her. Kath, RESPOND TO THE NEEDS of Ontarians NOW [] NOW [] NOW or become but a footnote in the history books. Right now the three Parties are about equal in Ontario [ 33% ] in the polls. An election at huge cost would leave things just about where they are now. So the better bet is to form a unity Government wherein all of the major problems we face can be dealt without political posturing. Give politics a reast in the House. The people’s concerns should be paramount.

             WHEN THE WHEELS CAME OFF CANADA’S DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY   —    In this post I have used the words Liberal Party machine / PC Party machine   —   I see no evidence that the NDP [ Fed / Ont./] has a Party machine but I have no inside info on the NDP to make a definitive statement.  However, in terms of the Ont. Libs / PCs I am acutely  aware that our democracy has been severely weakened. Harper IS the Fascist Party’s machine. The Federal Liberal Party has two machines. The Chretien Team and the Martin Team which have been involved in a civil war for 6 years. This contest has wasted money and sap the strength of the Fed. Libs. Their current leadership contest is a dreadful mistake. To overcome the battle of insiders the Liberals are now allowing just anyone to vote. This is a slap in the face to an already weakened riding association network. Why spend 4 years working for a party only to have someone walk in off the street and be given the same rank?

At its’ core a machine needs to have all MPs /MPPs neutered. A riding association board organizes a nomination process wherein a person can be asked to run for office or offer themself. All the candidate are interviewed by  nomination committee.  There is a cutoff off  time of potential voters for the candidate selection at say 6 month. This is to stop the sale of party memberships at the last minute so the voting is stacked. It is possible for a candidate to spend thousands of dollars for memberships at the last minute for $ 10 a pop where only a name is required. Once the candidate is picked the next hurdle is the election. Well not quite. With the Libs Federally and in Ontario, Harper’s Fascists and the PCs in Ont. the leader has to okay a candidate’s nomination papers. Now by this time a candidate has spend a considerable amount of money and dedicated countless hours to gain the nomination. Not to mention the work on the part of the riding association members. During this process the party headquarters has plenty of time to scrutinize the prospective candidates and report back to the ridng associations. Individuals might have a record, be in the Country illegally and so on. Under the present rules the party leaders can nix a candidate at the last minute and replace him or her with one of their friends. That is where our democracy goes off the rails. The people in a riding can pick a candidate through a long, drawn out process and on the whim of a leader it all goes poof.  Having a candidate bowing to this affront to our democracy means he / she is under the spell of the leader and the voters are relegated to being squat. If all of the Progressive Conservatives in Harper’s Party had not sworn allegiance to Lyin Steve there would have been a lot fewer trained seals on the Government benches. Harper would not have been able to steal the 2011 election. And he would not have been able to dismantle Canada. In Ontario the Tories would have responded to the electrical system crisis. And the Liberals would have stopped handing the Nukies the ratepayer’s hard earned  cash. MPs / MPPs would have been able to speak their minds [ something they pledge to do ] without fear of the leader and his machine. I have read about Jenni Byrne, a young nobody who works closely with Steve calling MPs into her office and dressing them down. Now a MP is voted into office and is sovereign. Jenni came out of the Young Fascists with a chip on her shoulder and no understanding of our democratic system. Apparently Byrne kept a Hakapik on her desk to show the MPs who was boss. In an earlier post I recommended that Jennie take over the gas chambers at Herr Harper’s new concentration camps. I hear while she is waiting to fill that job Byrne is running the Robo Calls show in Saskatchewan. In 2007 I decided to seek the PC nomination for Prince Edward – Hastings. I became involved in the process. At some point one of the Riding officials told me that my nomination would have to be confirmed by John Tory, a twit if there ever was one. There are people who think they are important so they therefore think what they do is important. There are people who do important things and as a result they are truly important. Tory THINKS HE IS IMPORTANT. I walked away from the nomination process, it is non democratic and this leadership scrutiny has weakened democracy in Ontario and Canada. So I bailed on Mike Harris in 2000 and bailed on John Tory in 2007. I had worked for the PCs since 1960 [ Frost / Robarts / Davis ]. Now I wouldn’t  touch Tim Hudak with a twelve foot poll. Ontario will have another election in 2 1/2 years I hope. Canada will have an election in 2015  if  Herr Harper is not successful in taking away our voting rights like the Republicans are trying to do in the USA. The far right in the next Federal election will attempt to steal it once again. In the next Ontario election Hudak and his pals will try and steal it too. After all Richard Ciano, Pres. Ont. PCs is the partner of Nick Kovalis who was involved with Herr Harper and Mike Meier [ RackNine ] in the Robo Call scandal of 2011. You remember the Robo Calls caper, now conveniently forgotten by the $ media and Elections Canada. Just remember if we do have elections in Ontario and Federal be wary of cheating. And buttonhole you candidate, simply ask him or her, did your leader have to sign your nomination papers for them to be valid. If the answer is yes, run like hell. If elected that MP will be a trained seal, the MPP will be a sheep. And your concerns will be forgotten, just like they are now. We have been warned over the years to be eternally vigilant. Our democratic system can be snatched away in an instant. Democracy in Germany vanished in a year once Hitler came to power. For Lyin Steve it is taking a bit longer.

I have great interest in seeing David Onley sacked. As McGuinty, the thief who stole Ontario’s democracy and turned the Legislature into a Liberal toy did his dirty business Onley became a deaf mute unable to move.  Lieutenant Governors are supposed to be watch dogs and protect our hard won freedoms. Rather Onley is a lap dog who’s only interest is getting a pat on the head for good behaviour. I want Onley’s head on a platter. I want to see Onley disgraced and dismissed.

**********************

I want to see McGuinty in jail for illegal activities and self enrichment. I also want Chris Bentley behind bars. Way back the nukies gave devious Dalt a free house worth more than a million bucks. He should give the house back. I wrote many letters to the Star and other media outlets about this freeby place before I ever started this blog. I copied those letters to McGuinty himself  but I was ignored by Dalt as well as the press. In the old days the papers controlled the flow of information. They didn’t have to respond. Well not anymore.  I wanted the Standing Committee on Finance in the Assembly to restart the hearings into the gas plant closures. One of the players in this theft of public funds is Russ Girling’s TransCanada pipe lines. Of interest is the fact that Tim Hudak’s wife works for Girling. TransCanada  is just covering all its’  bases. Russ is obviously quite confident that either the Libs or PCs will dominate Ontario so both Parties get to share the bribes. The nukies gave Dalt a free house. Girling gave Hudak’s wife money for, what?  Was it really a payoff to Hudak himself?  How much work did Mrs. Hudak actually do for Girling payments?  I’ll bet she hasn’t raise a finger? Was payment made to Tim’s wee wifey just to get around the rules? Isn’t it interesting, that on Ottawa and Queen’s Park there are so many Fascists on the take, the laws of the land mean nothing to them.

***********************

I WANT ALL OF McGUINTY’S DEALS WITH HIS FRIENDS INVESTIGATED, nukies and Murray Elston,  E Health, Ornge, Metrolinx, OPG, Hydro One, gas plant infrastructure and Bruce Power. I want every contract reviewed and I have even offered to help in this regard. I was in successful businesses for 50 years and a Pickering councilor to boot. I can smell a rat a mile away. I said in an earlier post I am all for a witch hunt. The more witches we snare the better. The meaner the better. Let’s act mean like Iceland. They are jailing politicians and bankers there. I am not asking anyone to do anything I am not prepared to do myself. I will pitch in to find the skeletons in the closet. I want the ill gotten gains paid back with interest. If necessary I want to see expropriations of businesses, assets and even McGuinty’s house. This must be an option. I also see jail as a consideration for those who helped themselves to our money. Four of my targets  are Dr. Mazza,  Rob Prichard, Russ Girling and Laura Formusa. Theft from the public treasury by the friends of the Government must be stopped cold. Putting those above in the slammer would certainly get the attention of the other movers and takers. The elites would be forced to realize that we don’t take kindly to seeing them parade criminals like Conrad Black, Garth Drabinsky and Brian Mulroney around at galas and stuffing them up our noses. The elites MUST LEARN that the laws of the land apply to everyone, even their own. Although the rich and famous never seem to learn. Go on the net and read all about the French Revolution. The King / Queen and nobles lost their heads over the abuse of the peasantry. That’ll larn em.

***********************

As much as it would do my heart good to recover OUR money, prosecute wrong doers, dismiss people like David Onley such efforts will not give Ontario the boost it need at this very moment. Wynne must form a UNITY GOVERNMENT like Winston Churchill did in 1940  wherein all the parties come together and take bold actions. Tim Hudak and Andrea Horwath would be Deputy Premiers and the Cabinet would be drawn from the Libs /PCs / NDP  in a ratio related to present seat count. We have almost 3 years in which to bring about change before another election is due.  I am, as you know a dissatisfied PC armed with working experience [ from 1960 / 2000 ] with Leslie Frost, John Robarts and Bill Davis. I am aware of the secret sauce that kept out PCs in power for 42 years. I worked for Mike Harris until he announced the sale of Ontario Hydro. At the time, I knew of  Tim Hudak who has never had a real job in his life. By 2000 I had had quite enough of the hard right wing of our Party. They are perpetual losers and now [ 2013 ] are 6.5 million in debt. so much for good fiscal managers. The Fascists took hold of the PCs in Frank Miller’s day and promptly lost power. Daaaaaaaaaa. We had a chance to revive the PCs under Mike Harris but he was under control of Bay St. and the Fascists too.  As were John Tory and  Tim Hudak is now. Mike engineered the defeat of the PCs and the Party has been on the outside of the Assembly and looking in ever since then. Do we as interested citizen work hard within a party stucture to consistently see defeat snatched from the jaws of victory???  The hard right / Fascists never learn, look at the USA. Quite some accomplishment. John Tory went nowhere and Hudak himself dwells in the land of nowhere too. In terms of a UNITY Government I can’t really see Hudak agreeing to be a Deputy Premier. Tim is a purpetual loser and the Republicans / right have him on a very tight leash. But the right wing ideology is easy to learn. About 45 words to repeat over and over [ first heard uttered by Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s ]. I am positive Hudak’s keepers won’t let him be Deputy Preem. The right wing vote is really only about 15% forever in Can. and you can add to that some progressives who get fooled.  However I can see the team of Kathleen and Andrea drafting individual PC MPPs to be part of a Unity Government and even having some of  them serve in Cabinet. PC  MPPs would have to break with the Tory Party machine to serve their constituents. My God what am I saying, PC  / MPPs serving the voters?  People, am I going mad???  As stated, Ontario DOESN’T NEED AN ELECTION, it would be  PURE FOLLY AT GREAT EXPENSE.  What we need is for the MPPs [ any stripe ] to take their work seriously and begin exercising their sovereignty without reference to the Lib. /  PC machines [ the Lib machine is now apparently gone ].  A MPP is not required to kneel to anyone, not a McGuinty nor a Hudak.  Collectively 107 MPPs govern Ontario and hold that power for more than 2.5 years. let us see them pick up the ball and run with it.  If 55 MPPs join together [ any stripe ], they are supreme. If all of the Liberal MPPs, all of the NDP  MPPs and the independant PC  MPPs join together it would be a Unity Government [ no official opposition would mean no reason to question unanimous postions ]. This would not be a coalition. [ where two parties join forces against the remaining party ].   WE CAN SOLVE ONTARIO’S PROBLEMS. DO YOU GET WHAT I AM SAYING???  This would mean almost 3 years without partisan politicing, just hard /dedicated work. All involved in this endeavour could tell their grandchildren that they were there when the light appeared at the end of the tunnel. Wynne has to realize that IF SHE DOESN’T FORM A UNITY GOVERNMENT INVOLVING ALL THREE PARTIES she will be toast. However, if an election is called I would suggest to Ontarians that they vote for Andrea Horwath / the NDP and give them A MAJORITY. My advice to Horwath continues to be, OFFER TO FIX THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. Cut KW rates by half her first day in Office.  Then Andrea can enlist what remains of Libs / PCs after such a vote to be part of said Unity Government. Each and every MPP who becomes involved in this Ontario turn around will have his or her status elevated. I would even strike a medal to be given to all of them in recognition of selfless service to the Province to put the Ontario on the road to prosperity.  Watching over such a Legislature I would look to having a new Lieutenant Governor. One who understands his / her role in protecting our rights. Rather than trying to be nice in order to get a pat on the head.

*********************************************************************************************************

Following are the issues that can make a difference in this Province if addressed in a timely fashion. Time is not on our side. We do not want to slide into the black hole like California has done.  Nor do I want Toronto to mimic Detroit, shut up shop for lack of cash, let the police go, close the fire stations and turn off the street lights.

********************************************************************************************************

While I do want my pound of flesh, the importance of getting Ontario back on the tracks is paramount. The David Onley matter will be solved in short order. His term ends in 2013. I would prefer to see him resign once the Unity Government is formed. I’d like to hang Onley high but he has to look at himself in the mirror each day and face alone his cowardice.  When called to do his duty and defend Ontarians David hightailed it and went into hiding. When democracy had to be defended Onley was AWOL.  Let’s not waste any more time on him. However, this time round we want someone more like Queen Elizabeth 11, tough but fair.

******************************

In terms of the gas plant cancellations and jailing McGuinty and Bentley I would suggest a step sideways. Andrea Horwath has suggested some kind of 3rd party commission to look into matter and take it off the Legislative table at this time. There are other more serious issues that have to be addressed immediatley. Wynne has already made her first mistake. By not removing the gas plant cancellations from the House for now Kathleen condems the Assembly to a constant negative barrage from Hudak and his keepers. They want an election which they can’t win. When does the hard right DO ANYTHING RIGHT? An election will cost at least $ 300 million and the $ media would love it. Let’s cut Hudak and the media off at the knees. Wynne says an inquiry will cost millions, bullshit. I was a Pickering Councillor, we ran a corporation which encompassed 28,000 people.  But we didn’t have Metro Toronto’s budget. Our Council used a lot of imagination to save  bucks. Here’s the fix. Appoint 12, just plain citizens to produce a report on the gas plants without laying blame. Pick 3 MPPs to be the revolving Chairperson [ Lib. / PC / NDP ]. Give them 6 chartered accountants and 3 lawyers as assistants. I am sure the accountant’s association and the the law Society of Upper Canada would supply same pro bono. I would enlist secretaries and assistants from OPA and the Energy Ministry etc to do the paper work. I can see all of the 50,000 gas plant  documents being parcelled out to the 12 man / woman jury for review. The jury members would have access to the support staff for clarification. This work could be done at home and at intervals there could be a meeting of the Whole. When the said report is complete it would be presented to the Standing Finance Committee of the House. In due course a review of the report would take place IN PUBLIC with the MPPs and the jury in attendence.  Ontarians would be able to rely on the report seeing as it was complied by their own fellow citizens. If criminal activities were suspected then it would be a matter for the OPP. I would clear out the top management of TVO. Those who are responsible for turning our TVO station into a McGuinty propaganda bulletin board. Coverage of the report and review would be broadcast on TV and on the net. From time to time a summary would be produced and posted on the net. The $ media would be barred officially from these proceedings and be in the same postion as the average citizen. What I am wanting is to remove media spin and filtration from the process. In the end the MPPs on the Standing Committee would submit their finding to the House and the Unity Government would then deal with the matter.  This would take time and remove the issue from the radar screen for a while. It would cost peanuts, be trustworthy and allow us to deal with the  fiscal cliff that awaits. In other words, the important issues first.

NOTE   —   Why do we have gas plants? Well I will tell you. Nuclear power has always been an iffy thing. They nukies have been doing experiments in Ontario since the beginning in 1960. Each CANDU [ proper name CAN'tDU ] is a one off. Mistake piled upon mistake as long as the nukies had our money to spend. The nukies used funds from the taxpayers of Canada, the taxpayers of Ontario, the ratepayers of Ontario and they sold off of the assets of the Old Ontario Hydro plus emptied the Utility’s bank account. This whole nuclear enterprise could not have been created without some kind of backup. Of course our 27,000 MWs of hydro electricity [ installed / potential ] could have played that roll but the nukies were always afraid of water. If the truth came out that a water KW was half a cent per and nuclear was 8.5 cents per water would have won out. So the nukies with the help of the Ontario Government and the $ media buried hydro electricity as an option. This censorship has probably cost Ontarians $ 50 billion or more. So the nukies turned to coal. A number of coal plants were built and from time to time they covered for the shuttered nuclear plants. Then McGuinty got the idea he could dress himself up as the Jolly Green Preem and score political points by closing the coal plants. The nukies were mortified. If one of their nukes failed their names would be mud. The Enbridge and TransNotCanada came up with a scheme. Cheap fracked natural gas was coming on stream which the pipers could sell to Ontario at Alberta prices. And to sweeten the pot the pipers would contribute to the Liberal Party’s bank account the way the nukies had been doing for years. The only problem was what excuse could be used to install of these natural gas plants?  Laura Formusa of Hydro One came up with the answer. Areas of high growth were going to run short of electricity and putting more hi tension lines in was suggested. Laura , the million dollar CEO of Hydro One, knew full well that the affected residents would scream, which they did. McGuinty called them NIMBYS. Of course the needed electricity could have been brought into the City by underground cables. Ontarians were never told that. So a number of natural gas plants were planned in the areas where KW shortages were forecast. Good for the pipe lines, even more cheap, fracked gas. I don’t imagine selling cheap Michigan / Pennsylvania fracked natural gas at Alberta prices was the only scam. I think the taxpayers safe was raided by McGuinty, Enbridge and TransNot Canada and an agreement was made to siphon off more tax dollars in the future. Hudak got paid off too, to hedge the bet. The gas plants were not needed so they were put where supply was very handy. Underground cables would have done the job. The whole gas plant idea has to be looked at from its’ inception. When I get finished with Toronto’s Gridlock I would love to unearth the real gas plant scandal, the starting, not so much the closing.

**********************************************************************************************************

In terms of all of the contracts signed by McGuinty and friends and Harris and friends I want a complete review. This review could be done along the lines of the above proposal, over a period of time. I won’t go into all the details. I have written before that after being in business for 50 years contracts are a quick study for me. It is not too difficult to pick out the smelly ones. I would see companies / individuals repay overpayments with interest. In some cases I can see expropriation of assets where cheating has taken place. And in addition I think jail might be the answer. Herr Harper / devious Dalt were /are  running police states on behalf of the insiders and the privileged. I would see us running a police state backed by our democratic system, by the will of the people for the people. If  Harris and McGuinty have had their people shread documents as in the case of the gas plant cancellations I would just follow the cheques. If Russ Girling of  Tran / Can is getting cheques I’d demand that he produce a copy of the contracts before we pay another dime. That is if McGuinty has destroyed the originals. I have worked out how this contract review should proceed and in the beginning it would be off the screen and out of the political arena. No party, Government people or consutltants would be involved. Again I would see accountants and lawyers supplied pro bono. Surely these segments of society would rather live in a prosperous / lawful Ontario than a Province that is bankrupt and run by crooks??? Everyone must put their shoulder to the wheel. While this review process is ongoing I would declare a year long grace period for repayment of overpayments. Anyone who has taken advantage of Ontario like [ Russ Girling ]could come forward, repay the overpayments without interest. But would be on the understanding that contacts within the Government [ staff or politicians ] who were involved in illegal activities would have to  be named. Such contrite businesses would retain prefered status and be able to continue doing business with Queen’s Park. I was a businessman and I am a free enterpriser. In some areas the activity should be owned by the citizens. In other sectors private / public partnerships are best. In most cases private companies are best suited for the job. MPPs must set the rules not party insiders. It is possible to meet the needs of the voters and have the businesses so engaged be profitable. Such businesses, have to be honest, legit and well run. Most big ones are not. The managements of same would have to be competent and civic minded. Looking past personal greed and at the bigger picture can actually mean higher profits for enterprises. Crooks in business sometimes don’t realize being honest can have bigger returns. Only those who are grossly incompetent like Conrad Black / Garth Drabinsky have to steal. If a government permits private firms to steal by virture of lax rules [ like Dr. Mazza ], that is exactly what they will do. Separating the taxpayer’s and their cash becomes the central focus as it did with one very crooked D. McGuinty and the Liberals who encouraged Mazza. We will find out how much Dalt and the Party got under the table from Ornge. It will take time and of course the interest clock keeps on ticking. I want those who have been raiding the public treasury to be publicly humiliated and if warranted jailed. If McGuinty is found to have taken public money / bribes I want all of his assets seized. Let he and his family visit the food bank.

********************************************************************************************************

What I am saying is that there is some tidying up to do of past sins but addressing them will not revive the Ontario economy, create jobs and lighten the financial load of the 13.5 million people in this Province. It is obscene that such a blessed place has been run into the ground by greedy politicians and their hangers-on. Both the Libs [ no longer ] and the PCs [ still ] are under the control of Party machines that disconnected from the people more than 15 years ago. We, since that time have been electing sheep [ MPPs ] under the two major Party banners. These machines have gone on their own merry way without regard for our interests. In the meantime we go through elections which produced no benficial effects other that to Harris / friends and McGuinty / friends. It will be interesting to find out how much of our money devious Dalt shovelled out the back door in the 4 months he was the again / off again Preem [ during Prorogation ] . This behind the MPPs backs? So let’s boo David Onley and leave him to his fate. Having to live out his life as someone, who when called upon to respond to a public crisis hightailed it lickety split.

********************************************************************************************************

As sort of warm up to tackling the toughies I want to touch on Steve Paikin and his Liberal Agenda programs following Wynne’s win. Steve did his usual cream puff interview with Kathleen and carefully avoided the questions Ontarians are asking [ I will outline the serious matters below that Steve avoided ]. This was old fashion media [ 1970s ]. Info from the top down. Never going for the throat and upsetting governments or the advertisers. Allowing people to make vague comments only masks the fact that the public has zilch imput. One Agenda featured representatives of 4 political parties [ Libs / PCs / NDP  / Grns ]  plus the ever Liberal friendly Martin Regg Cohn. No interrogators from other papers / TV / net. There was Tim Murphy, a former Liberal MPP who is a rabid Dalt / Party supporter. Howard Hampton, former NDP Leader, a Tim Hudak yes man who so impressed me that I have forgotten his name already. And a young woman from the Greens who was out of the loop. Of course Martin Cohn from the Toronto Star was there to put the necessary Liberal spin on any and all comments. And he did. It was like the old NHL  Hot Stove League, all about the game of politics and how each party has fared and what changes are necesary. A whole hour went by and Ontarians never made it to the table.  In a sense it was all about what  will required to fool the voter. Tim Murphy and Martin Cohn were on the blue line for the Liberals.  I don’t think McGuinty was even mentioned. Daaaaaaaaaaaa. Howard Hampton did try to talk issues in an oblique way, not wanting to crowd his NDP Party. The woman representing the Grns never got into the game. Tim Hudak’s flake was so yesterday. One thing you can bank on is that the hard right never admits to making a mistake. There is an old saying that if you keep on doing the same thing over and over the result will always be the same, complete failure. This PC shill was identified on the screen as a Mike Harris advisor. That’s why I remembered all this old stuff he was pushing. I too worked for Harris and abandon his Fascists when they threatened to sell Ont. Hydro. Hudak is a little like the wolf hiding in grandma’s bed dressed in her nightgown awaiting the advantage. Looking kind but just waiting to bite. I took it from the PC flake that Hudak is mired in the 1990s. What happened then, Tim plans to make happen again.  Hudak speaks with a forked tongue. The next night the second Paikin Agenda had a group of teachers who were responding to the heavy handed treatment by ex Preem McGuinty. Devious Dalt was so frightened about the prospect of going to jail with Chris Bentley that he quit the Premiership in slow motion. Now you see him, now you don’t. His media friends played along in return for money letting Ontarians believe he was gone but he wasn’t really. In pure panic McGuinty illegally Prorogued the Legislature. The papers of course defended his actions. Then like a guy coming out of his tree McGuinty picked a fight with the teachers to divert attention for his other mistakes. He even leaked that he might run for the Fed. Liberal leadership, just another diversionary ploy which the $ media fell for.  Paikin had an hour long conversation with the embattled teachers.  Steve’s line was McGuinty has framed this devious deal thusly and just how WERE THE TEACHERS GOING TO DEAL WITH IT. If I had been one of the teachers my response to Paikin would have been,  McGuinty can stick this agenda up his keester. We’re NOT PLAYING BY HIS /LIBERAL JUNTA RULES.  Steve kept saying that the Province was out of money. That is a lie and Steve knows it. Ontario has billions of dollars in unused hydro electrity both installed and potential. Enough KWs to power the Province with the nuclear  / coal plants gone. Dalt and his nukie friends would never let us have access to all of our water power. Captializing on water would have killed nuclear in Ont. in a moment.  The price of power would have been cut in half and we could never have that could we? Half priced KWs would have cost McGuinty’s friends too much money.  Paikin saw the teachers giving in as the only option. No they don’t have to give in. I have communicated with Steve  many times as to the nukies destroying this Provinces economy. Poor Paikin, he never responded, never understood.  The teachers did not create the $ billions shortfall, McGuinty and his nukie friends did that. Nuclear power is the most expensive / dangerous way to boil water to make steam ever conceived by man. Dalt and the Liberals were bribed by the nukies early in his first term with the  ratepayer’s money. I wrote to Steve / TVO  more than 6 years ago when there was still time and told Paikin that  for McGuinty all roads led to nuclear. Being a techie, I could see that every time Dalt made a move as regard to our electrical system he gave preferential treatment to the nukies. I have often wondered how much of our money was given to the nuclear industry by the Liberals? And how much came back to Dalt’s office in brown envelopes on the Q T?  Back then Paikin was inviting viewers to submit new ideas and subject matter for programs, as he still does to-day. But it was /is pure bullshit. The only things that made / makes it onto TVO were / are friends of McGuinty and his Liberal machine. Around 2000 I was urging Mike Harris not to sell Ontario Hydro but urging him to promise to fix it. I concluded our second PC mandate showed weakness and the sharp elbows of Mike and some of his MPPs like John Baird did not help. All the things that Hudak is now proposing sank us back then [ teachers / welfare / unions / pay cuts etc ]. I decided that unless we pulled off something big like fixing Hydro we were toast. Harris’ PCs had cut ties with the grassroots including me and they were flying blind. Hudak to-day is flying blind, he’s not plugged in to the people. Of course Mike ran away when it became clear he was going to be defeated, just like Brian Mulroney. Harris left Ernie Eves hanging out there by his thumbs. And the PCs have been OUT OF POWER EVER SINCE. You would think that the hard right would eventually get the message. Hello Hudak.  Ontarians are mostly in the middle politically. Republican / right hand-me-down ideas are unacceptable in Ontario. So as far as I am concerned Hudak and his American handlers can stay out in the wilderness forever. After my exit from the PCs I began to study this Province’s electrical system and started to trouble-shoot with a view to coming up with a fix. More than 3 years later McGuinty / Liberals were elected. My PCs were reduced to 25 seats as I had predicited. About 4 months later [ 2004 ] I wrote to devious Dalt offering my services. My KW research was based mostly on the library and the inter library loan system. Initially I got material from the Toronto Star but as I became more knowledgeable about our KW system and nuclear it became apparent that the Star was printing false and misleading information and lies about the nukes. And Honderich still is.  Being of a technical nature I know that the nuclear story doesn’t lend itself to spin. But spin it the Star did as did the Ont. Energy Ministry. I had warned Harris that if he didn’t fix the electrical system the PCs would be finished. That came true. I warned McGuinty of the same problem. Let the electrical system remain on its’ present destructive course and you will suffer the same fate as Harris. Dalt didn’t fix the system and he has now pulled a Mike Harris and run away. And the Liberals are going to follow him if  Wynne continues to follow McGuinty’s lead. I have baited the Preem ever since. I sent letter after letter about the problems with the KW system and sometimes including technical material to prove what was being made public was lies. I almost knew Dalt, Dwight Duncan and the $ media would ignore me. and they did. I saw guests on Paikin’s Agenda who lied about nuclear. Steve was always  encouraging viewers to suggest  program material. I tried a number of times to get the real nuclear story on TVO. I came to the conclusion that McGuinty was pulling the strings of  TVO and was controlling the output. I baited Paikin too, sending letters and technical back up to prove his guests were lying, material which I knew he would never use. We had a chance to  arrest the free fall of Ontario’s electrical system back  in 2004. But McGuinty wouldn’t listen. 6 years ago when I communicated with Steve Paikin about programs on nuclear, I was prepared to supply all of the material. Saving our electrical system was then still a possiblity. But Steve was more interested in his Government pay cheque. I keep saying to Ontarians that there is no money in telling the truth. The money’s in telling lies or printing them or broadcasting them. So McGuinty and his nukie friends have destroyed Ontario’s economy and Steve Paikin helped in the doing.  Instead of sitting across from the teachers telling them they have to tighten their belts Steve should have said. I helped devious Dalt and his nukie friends turn this Ontario of our’s into a have-not-province and you dear teachers are blameless. There is money but Dalt has given it all to his friends like Mazza, Girling and Prichard. Unless this Province is fixed fast there will be no TVO. California was ruined by the Republicans and McGuinty has acted just the same way. That State is now bankrupt and ungovernable. Teachers, police and fire fighters are being laid off. Roving gangs are dragging people out of their cars and robbing them. These mobs are setting fires. Right wing ideology doesn’t work. This nonsense could roll our society back to the stone age. We have bad politicians like McGuinty and always will have. But it’s people like Steve Paikin, Martin Reg Cohn and CEO Lisa de Wilde who facilitate tyrants like Dalt. Evil blossoms in a  society when good people fail to act. Good people stood by as the Nazis came to power. And where did it get the good people? They died with the rest . Paikin kept his pay cheque by bowing to McGuinty. If Ontario goes so will TVO,  Steve will still be out on his ass like the rest of us.  Daaaaaaaaaa It is a case of short term gain for an eternity of excruciating pain.  If Paikin had levelled with Ontarians 6 years ago and been sacked for it at least he could have held his head high knowing he had not surrender to evil. Now he has to face the facts. Money was more important than the welfare of his audience, kids and all. TVO talks a good game when it comes to the young. But behind the scenes doing the political two step is more important the securing of the futures of the very children Wilde claims to serve. Youth unemployment is now around 15%,  thanks in part to TVO and Steve Paikin playing the McGuinty stooges

********************************************************************************************************

Now I will lay out the issues I feel should be quickly addressed by the Unity Government. There is not a moment to lose playing political games. There is a fix in every case at a rock bottom cost. For that reason the political insiders, the Queen’s Park hangers-on, businesses that do government work, Bay St. and the $ media will not support any of these measures. They do not want the following problems to be solved. They just want ongoing access to your wallets. So we have a fight on our hands. Their continued lives of leisure or our escape from servitude.

*********************************************************************************************************

This is my things-to-do immediately list. It is time to carpe diem [ seize the day ]. This latin expression is part of a longer sentence. Horace coined the phrase, ” Seize the day, putting as little trust as possible in tomorrow “. The Jews had a different take on this same sentiment, ” If not now, then when? “. This is my wrinkle. Seize the day, for our very future depends upon. As does the future of our children. If we do lose the battle for the planet I want Lyin Steve’s kids taken first.

THIS IS OUR LIST OF OF JOB ONES   ————————————————————————————————-   Our electrical system   []   []   Our educational system and the plight of the teachers   []   []   Toronto gridlock   []   []  The Toronto public transit system   []   []   Natural gas / gasoline / oil   []   []   Highway # 407   []   []   Hydrogen /electric vehicles. What follows is an outline of the present problems and my fixes.                                                                   PLEASE  NOTE   —    Many of these fixes are not new. I have been making suggestions [ almost forever ] about upgrading  technical / mechanical SYSTEMS  [ Gridlock / public transit /energy / nuclear / hydrogen et al ]  in Canadian society. But politicians, big business, the movers and takers and the $ media found they could not collect bribes nor make any money based on my outlook. Since my letter writing started 15 years ago [ at least ] Canada has gone downhill both in terms of our democratic institutions and the Country’s wealth. Almost everything that has happen here has come as no surprise. But this week we reached rock bottom. Herr Harper [ who is mentally ill ]  surrounded himself with cheats, liars and thieves but has now added a new category. Namely pervert, in the person of Tom Flanagan, an American draft dodger with a mouth that is far too big, attached to a mind that is far too small. Tom is close in with Harper, Preston Manning, Danielle Smith, the Wild Oil Party, the University of Oil in Calgary, the Fraser Institute and the petro media. Although each one of them is now disowning Flanagan it will not be that easy. He is a big chunk of each entity. They collectively and individually have given Flanagan far too much stage time. Many of them were warned of his weird ideas and thoughts but chose to ignore the dangers he posed to the hard right wing movement in total. Now the evil genie is out of the bottle and I think it will be the moment we have been waiting for. It is time to depose Steve Harper and put him in jail. The crime?  Selling Canada to the US oil cartel. Of course all of those above are liars, with every breath they assault our ears. But I would like to single our U of Calgary’s President, Elizabeth Cannon for a big, fat lie. Liz said Flanagan had been let go  January but the University had not informed anyone. Not. The hard right wing can not function without telling lies to Canadians and themselves.  The reputation of Cannon and the University had reached the  untrustworthy state. Having thrown Tom under the bus and then back dating his leaving confirms the dark place the  University of Calgary inhabits. Of oil, by oil, for oil. There are already right wing vermin coming out of the wood work defending Tom Flanagan in the Harper media, claiming free speech. Paul Godfrey’s National Post is one. You remember the Post?  It is the newspaper that provides a weekly platform for Conrad Black, that infamous British criminal who in now in Canada illegally. It must be mentioned that the Conman is in Canada as Lyin Steve’s personal guest only. Harper did an end run around Canada’s regulations.  Both of them abide by THEIR OWN LAWS and live IN THEIR VERY OWN REALITIES. Godfey’s Post is filled with right wing claptrap based mostly on activities and opinions from the USA. It is the most unbalanced newspaper I have ever seen in Canada. It is a sort of watered down version of  Pravda. There are the regular right wing journoshills like Andrew Coyne, John Ivison and Claudia Cattaneo. Most of the rest of the copy is written by low paid / no paid interns who do what they are told. It is right / oilie propaganda badly done, sort of high school journalism 101. The rest of the contents is American stuff by Charler Krauthammer, George F. Will and others. Both Chuck and George work for the Washington Post, a Paper which has been instrumental in the destruction of the USA. If you remember Will was on the Board of Hollinger and attended one meeting a year for which Conrad Black paid him $ 25,000 for the use of George’s name. Will wrote a glowing article about the Conman without telling anyone he was a hired hand. Sounds like Conrad doesn’t it? Presently our newspapers are printing glowing tributes to Black who cheats, lies and steals. The question is, how much is Connie paying for such favourable publicity in Canada?? Phil Crawley could tell us.

THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM   —   I have been involved with this file for at least a dozen years. I was really awakened to the issue by Mike Harris when he announced the sale of Ontario Hydro. This was the height of stupidity. I heard rumbling within the Party of a big payoff for some insiders. It was clear to me by that time that the PC machine had abandoned the grassroots, me included. I protest the sale, met with my MPP, Janet Ecker and wrote to Harris, who I had met. Mike persisted and so did I. In my area, the northern part of Pickering Township where I had served as a Councillor the PC rank and file were not amused. There were many small irritants caused by the hard right wing stance OUR Party was taking. My neighbours were more in tune with Bill Davis. The prospect of the sale of Ont. Hydro was a huge negative on top of a whole pile of  little negatives. I voiced the opinion to Harris and Ecker that Ont. Hydro was a giant opportunity or a curse. Offer to fix the mess and reclaim the support of Party members. Go ahead with the sale, ignore the interests of Ontarians and suffer the curse of defeat. Fixing Ontario Hydro could have propelled the PCs towards another 42 years of power.  A Judge ruled Mike’s sale invalid and so it never happened. Harris suffered from his sales initiative but never did deliver the KW prize to his Bay St. friends and ENRON.  This is just another example of a politician having no sense of politics. To make matters worse Mike split Hydro into 5 bits [ Hydro One / OPG etc ] in anticipation of a sale. 5 bits would have brought in more money to cover Harris’ hidden $ 3.5 billion debt. 5 bits would give no one private company the ability to control this Province’s  electrical system. I only found out later that ENRON was involved with Harris. Ontario was being sold out by the PCs to the Yankees just as Herr Harper is now selling  out Canada to the Mericans oilies.  5 bits meant that new configuration in terms of a business rendered it unmanageable.  In both cases the $ media was there to support the thefts. Dollars you know. We are fortunate that Ont. Hydro was not sold off in its’ entirety. McGuinty sold off little bits on the Q T.  Talking about devious Dalt, when he was elected I was concerned for Ontario. The creation of 5 separate entities by Harris only made the problems worse. Your present electricity bill proves that I was right 10 years ago. I wrote to the McGuinty and offered my expertise. Dalt ignored me. There was only one way for electrical system to go and that was downhill at an increasingly alarming rate. This fall was  created by devious Dalt’s constant meddling and his need to use the system as a public relations tool. He said he would close the coal plants. Using coal generates cheap electricity and if such a plant is equipped with clean-coal technology its’ waste and emissions are not that much greater than nuclear [ mine to KWs ]. By the way the coal plants were built by the nukies as a backup for possible breakdowns or accidents with our nuclear plants. Going flat out with both coal plants and the nukes we had too much KW capacity. So Ontarians paid extra to have coal stand by if one of the nukes failed. The truth be told Ontario has more than enough hydro electricity both installed and potential to power the whole Province with 2000 MWs spare. That means we do not need either the coal plants or the nuclear plants. But McGuinty and his nukie friends were deathy afraid of revealling our hydro resources. Would you like to see $ 60 billion spent on new nuclear plants and the refurbishment of the older one that generates a charge of 8.5 cents per KW wholesale, when a  water KW is 1.5 cents per KW wholesale? A massive campaign was waged over the years, especially in the Toronto Star to keep our hydro birthright under raps. And it worked. McGuinty, the nukies gave enough of our money to the $ media to ensure we never heard about the cheap / clean KWs that were and still are available. John Honderich of the Star was recently given an award by the Advertising Club of  Toronto at their annual Newspaper Day luncheon. Honderich served / serves the  advertisers well. He carried their propaganda to the readers faithfully and never ever considered the truth and the interest of Ontarians. McGuinty gave us a Conservation Program which was long on talk and short on action. There were loads spent on 5 colour brochures by Dalt.  His nukie friends did not really want KW useage to be reduced. Lower demand would take the heat off building new nukes. Dwight Duncan even staged phony black / brown out in 2005 / 2006 to stampede us into okaying new nukes but the crash of the subprime market south of the border starting in 2006 scuppered new nukes. Ever increasing KW rates drove / drives businesses out of Ontario.  Quebec, Manitoba and Michigan have 6 cent KWs. You and I now pay 20 cents per KW all in to cover the cost of graft for the nukies and bribes to McGuinty’s friends. Devious Dalt gave us smart meters, another boondoggle to hand out money to his friends. If you want a peek at how it is done just look at the Ornge affair. I have watched all this KW abuse unfold since 2003. I wrote maybe 200 letters to the provincial leaders, MPPs, reporters, journalists, papers and TV stations to no avail. This was before I started my blog,  now over 3 years old. The Geeman has been saying the same things since 2009 and again to no avail. I gave McGuinty the same advice in 2004 that I gave to Mike Harris in 2000. Fix the electrical system or be defeated. Harris realized he was going to lose and ran away, leaving poor Ernie Eves hanging by this thumbs. Finally the electrical system has claimed Dalton McGuinty and he has now run away leaving Kathleen Wynne hanging by her thumbs. Both the Liberals and Hudak’s machine fully support the nukies. If that is not changed Ontario’s days are numbered.  Allowing this abuse to continue will take us beyond the point of recall. I will not go into any more detail on Ontario’s electrical system as I have already covered the issue at least a half dozen times. It is now crunch time. So far I have itemized many of the KW problems we face, done in the exact same way as the newspapers do. Long on observation but short on remedies. In fact the $ media never offers any fixes. Let’s change that. So here goes.

********************                                                                                                                                             ********************

[ 1 ]   Cut KW prices in half immediately. There are a multitude of ways to shrink the costs of running the electrical system. Right away Ontarians would see their bill reduced by 50% and this would spur Queen’s Park to go after the savings quickly. Overpayments and fraudulent dealings could be reclaimed.

[ 2 ]   Glue the old Ontario Hydro back together but leave out OPG. Having 5 bits as we have now makes no business sense and any executive with any brains at all would not abide being involved in such an insane system. Hydro One, OPA and the others would become the new Ontario Hydro with the motto, Living  Better With Affordable Electricity “.

[ 3 ]   Sack all of the management teams of the 5 bits. They have made a mess and continue to make a mess due to the fact that they are parasites. They are interested in in a pay cheque and never think of creating a payoff for the ratepayers. With the leadership of OPG cleared out we could install a shut down team to do away with the nuclear plants. Mothballing the plants will be costly but it is better to stop the bleeding of money now. In terms of the $ 22 billion in nuclear waste lying around that is Herr Harper’s. Ontario never accepted responsiblility for this toxic waste. That ball was always in  Atomic Energy of Canada’s court. [ I have a copy of the original agreement between Ontario, the Federal Government and AEC ]. The Province was left in the dark over the radioactive waste.

[ 4 ]   Open up for inspection ALL OF THE CONTRACT NEGOTIATED BY MIKE HARRIS / DALTON McGUINTY WITH PRIVATE OPERATORS. I suspect we will find much the same as has been revealed by the investigation at Ornge. I would see cancellations of contracts, repayment of funds obtained illegally [ with interest, expropriation of businesses and assets and the possibility of jail for those involved].

NOTE   —   I suggested to Mike Harris in 2000, fix Ontario Hydro don’t sell it. I suggested to Dalton McGuinty fix the electrical system or it will ruin you. Neither one of them listened. I have already suggested to Andrea Horwath, promise to fix the electrical system and you will be the next Premier of Ontario with a healthy majority. Then you can implement your agenda with the money to do it..

*********************************************************************************************************

TEACHER /EDUCATION   —   This whole attack on our teachers was a diversionary tactic to aid devious Dalt in escaping imprisionment. McGuinty picked a fight to cover his Government corruption. He been funnelling money to the nukies as well as his friends and Liberal insiders. I would investigate the activities of the Premier’s office from 2003 to 2012 with a view to recovering illegal payments, bribes, graft and gifts like Dalt’s free house. I would go back to the contract that the teacher’s were comfortable with, the one that left them with their negotiated benefits like sick days. The teachers already agreed to hold the line on wages and that is good enough for now. Let’s get Ontario humming again, then we can discuss dividing up the spoils. One problem we may face is that Dalt has shreaded all of his files. If that is the case then we can jail him right away.

********************************************************************************************************

TORONTO GRIDLOCK   —   Ah, one of my favourite peeves. For more than 30 years the City has had a car hating Council,  ever since that pest Jane Jacobs blew into town. She was escaping criminal police charges in NY City and looking for a place to hide her 2 sons from the Vietnam draft. So much for being interested in Toronto’s problems. She hooked up with about 40 people [ elites or self appointed elites from the Annex ], who saw their own interests as being paramount. A couple of these civic minded folk were writers. They cozied up to Jacob’s, Jane was seen as someone could open doors to them. And she did.  All of this me, me, me trumped  the interests of the other 2 million residents. The $ media loved the contest and never took Toronto’s side. Jacob’s was a master of manipulating the press and our papers surrendered to her spell and environmental claptrap.  The  ” Kill the Spadina ” movement had the effect of destroying all of the planning for roads and transit that had been going on for 25 years, since WW 11. To-day we are paying the price for these activities of  Jacobs [ the curse that keep on giving ] and the gang of 40. Right now the Toronto elites and the movers and takers are once again interfering with the life of our City. The $ media again loves it, plenty of advertising dollars, screw the City once again.  The, ” screw the City crowd ”  [ John Tory / Mitzie Hunter / Sun / Star / Civic Action Alliance / elites are pushing to collect even more money from the citizenry to overcome the problems they themselves have created. It is sort of solving one’s problems using somebody else’s credit card. Kathleen Wynne, John Tory, Carol Wilding  and the above, are all calling for road tolls and new taxes to solve Gridlock in the GTA. They have no understanding of the problems and have no real plan to fix the problems. Before another column is written, the $ media editors have to ask John Tory. How did we get into this mess? What is your plan to fix the situation? Tory should have his trap shut with a sock until he answers. Gridlock is being allowed to fester. And thusly it is the perfect tool to extract more money from Torontonians without reducing gridlock. DON’T GIVE THESE PEOPLE, INCLUDING TORY A BLOODY CENT. At least 25% of the gidlock is purposely caused by Toronto Traffic Services at the urging of City Council. Every traffic impediment know to man can be seen in Toronto.  When I was a Pickering Councillor our population was 28,000 people. Each of us wore many hats because we could not afford departments for every activity. We did have Works and Planning but that was about it. Subdivisions were being built and we had to come to grips with all the details. I got a good education on the roads and traffic file. People should be aware of Toronto’s dirty little secret [ The Kill the Car Campaign lasing over 30 years ] The City breaks every rule in the book, its’ little wonder that YOU are sitting bumper to bumper. The Council has inflict this pain on you the drivers [ purposely ]. If you give the elites extra money, what you see now will continue on into the future. They don’t understand the problem so they can’t fix it.  When Rob Ford became Mayor I communicated with him about gridlock. Someone at City Hall was commenting on gridlock and said it would cost $ 328 million for a consultant’s report to outline a plan. I thought to myself, that is preposterous. From my Pickering Council days my hatred of consultants has lingered. The one thing consultants have in common is nerve. They know very little but fake it big.  And charge big. So I put my thinking cap on. I offered to give the Mayor a bird’s eye view of Gridlock for $ 50,000 plus expenses. I proposed we two [ or the Mayor's designate ] driving around the City with a driver and a planner with a map and mobile computer. I was prepared to identify all the choke points and expand on my ideas.  I figured it would take 6 months to prepare a report. Once the plan was excepted I expected to be paid. So Toronto was risking absolutely  nothing hiring me other than expenses and the wages of a couple of employees and gas money. I distribute this information to the $ media including the papers, leaders and MPPs at Queen’s Park, City Councillors and others. Nary a reply. Gridlock just got worse and gets worse. I figured, eventually the citizens would rise up but that has not been the case so far. Since my offer to Mayor Ford I have continued to work on the gridlock question. I have come up with one solution.  There must be others out there like me who are shut out of this debate. The movers and takers can’t make any graft for plans  I have developed. Look at the streetcar mess on St. Clair. That’s what the insiders like to do. Of course with having lots of tax money they can buy up the $ media. So the city is slowly being squeezed and you a footing the bill for the squeezing.  The press would never dare publicize plans like mine. Advertsing dollars would be withheld by the rich and powerful. What has changed in the past few weeks is the elites are now trying to extract more money from Torontonians to solve gridlock. A problem that doesn’t  really exist [ it is Toronto made ]. This is something that has been inflicted on the City by a Council deep into social engineering. They don’t like cars and are bent on driving you out of your’s. The only ray of sunshine  is that Kathleen Wynne has taken ownership of Toronto’s gridlock. That is where the problem of gridlock will be solved, Queen’s Park. However Wynne can’t have her tolls and more money. 25% of gridlock can be solved quickly, on the cheap and I have the plan to do just that. After 2 years I have completed the preliminary plan which can be accessed immediately the Legislature is in session. I will only work with the Government at Queen’s Park. I want $ 250,000 for 5 year contract [ $ 50,000 per year ] plus expenses. I will oversee the plan’s implementation. I want the management teams of Toronto Transportations Services [ masters in creative constriction ] and the Toronto Parking authority sacked. I can’t see the mess we are in getting any worse with these incompetent people sitting at home. I won’t outline my plan here it is too complicated. I suggest that the Legislature strike a Standing Committee on Toronto Gridlock under the new Unity Government. Unity Gov. is when all parties recognize the gravity of the situation and they move to address the problems sans politics. In otherwords a total commitment to the citizens. I would be happy to meet with such a Committee. To give you an idea as to where I am headed here is a brief preview.

**********************                                                                                                                                              **********************

Toronto has 10,000 streets. I have picked about 20 to be designated Thru Streets and all the rest would be People Streets. Examples of  Thru Streets Jane St., Eglinton Ave. and Kingston Rd. They would have 4 unobstructed traffic lanes their entire lengths. Most of the traffic lights would be removed and there would be no left hand turns onto side streets [ 7 am to 8 pm ]. Left hand turns would only be allowed at traffic lights. THERE WOULD BE NO STANDING ON THRU STREETS [ NO EXCEPTIONS ]. Those who park on a Thru Street will be towed and ticketed, this includes couriers / shred-it-trucks etc. The intersections at Thru Streets will be computer controlled, increasing / decreasing the green light intervals depending on traffic flows. East / west advance greens will go on for left and right turns going each way. Then the green for through traffic. Through traffic intervals will be longer than at present. Then north /south, advance greens left / right then the through greens. After this cycle is completed reds will come on for all traffic. Pedestrians will use the entire intersection designated as a X walk, straight across or diagonally. No  bicycles will be permitted on Thru streets. The speed limit will be kept low. What I am after is traffic that keeps moving steadily and doesn’t fill the sky with CO2 and the air with poisonous carbon monoxide. This grid system of Toronto Thru Sts. will take cars off the Don Valley Pkwy., # 401, #  427 and the Gardiner Ex. If I am at Leslie and Eglinton nowdays I would never think of driving through the City to Islington Ave. I’d go up to # 401, then back down into the City. Going along Eglinton, it would be 10 miles and take an hour, mostly with a idling engine spewing lots of pollution. An idling engine is very inefficient. Going # 401 the journey would be 16 miles, I’d use a little more gas, cause less pollution and be there in a 1/2 hour if the traffic was normal. If it was busy this # 401 route would be no quicker, I would use even more gas and cause more pollution. This is pure craziness. People Streets would be Yonge St., Bloor St., The Danforth and St. Clair which the Council has already destroyed as the thoroughfare. Faster traffic would be removed for the other 9980 streets and the Council could play all the games they wanted [ like bike lanes etc ] and take out all those $ 3000 speed bumps. I’d rebuild the Gardner Ex. There are ways to deal with falling chunks of concrete, much cheaper than what is quoted in the papers. Again the bill is being padded.  Over the last 10 years the Councillors have buried $ 40 million slated for the maintenance the Gardiner with the intention of pushing it beyond repair. This is irresponsible. If you lose 3 shingle from the roof of your house and wait ten years you will suffer thousands of $s in water damage. Like maybe $ 10,000. This to avoid a $ 100 roof repair. This is our City Council. By the way the Gardiner can be repaired for a lot less than is being quoted. Queen’s Park has to expropriate the 20 Thru Streets and get this grid system out of the hands of Toronto Council. If YOU want we can start on Gridlock  as soon as the Legislature reconvenes. Call your MPP. The problem is there are too many pigs with their noses in the trough to just monkey with bandaids. We have to take away the trough. This fix requires cutting deeply into the flesh to remove the cancer. Will this be done??? I borrow an old saying. You can lead a people to prosperity but you can’t make them seize it.

Note   —   I have created a map of Toronto [  66 in x 30 in ] onto which I have transfered the entire Thru Street Grid . You can’t buy a map like this. It is the springboard to immediate implementation and the defeat of Gridlock, affordably. Stepping back, it would seem to me to be quite a bargain, spending $ 250,000 to do something right away as opposed to forking out $328 million plus for yakers to solve the problem in 5 years? Ten years? Never? Who knows?

********************************************************************************************************

TORONTO PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEM   —   My file on this subject is about 6 inches thick, mostly containing newspaper clippings. They sport tens of thousands of words, this gibberish goes from nowhere to nowhere.  What we have is the citizenry who are paying big dollars for something they are not getting.  Bluntly they are being shortchanged on transit. And they have no way to express their displeasure. They can’t get at Metrolinx, a McGuinty creation nor the TTC which is a step away from the City Council. A small number of people make a lot of money from this dysfunctional two headed monster. My file contains the efforts by the $ media to ensure that the only solutions put forth are the ones which provide the monsters with the biggest payday. The streetcar fiasco on St. Clair is the perfect example, estimated at $ 60 million, the eventual bill being $ 140 million. Those are hard earned tax dollars but the movers and takers show no respect for the 2.5 million Torontonians who pay the bills. In terms of St. Clair no one has been brought to account and now we are beginning all over again, another heist. The elites think if a $ 160 million theft can be forced down the throats of Torontonians why not billions?  About 6 years ago my son James and I were invited to make a proposal to cool the subways in London England. We were supplied with their proprietary information as requested. As we addressed the overheating in the tube specific technical information was required by us.  James flew over to London twice for onsite inspections. Engineers with the Underground had been trying to unlock the secret of overheating for more than 2 years with no success. We found that they were searching in the wrong place. They did not determine the problem so it was obvious that the engineers could not find the solution. James and I did some trouble shootings. A Bakerloo Line advertisement from 1905 invited Londoners to come use the Tube during the summers when the temp was 90 deg F up top, while it was 60 deg F. down in the subway. When James and I were engaged the reg. temp down below had passed 72 deg F. It increased from there once the trains started running and all the bodies arrived. When we came on the scene the temp on occasion was over 90 deg F on the platforms. People were throwing up, fainting and the tracks were becoming distorted. Internal documents showed a one deg F rise in the Tube each 10 years starting in 1905. The solution to cooling the Tube lies right there. Why was the temp climbing each year? What do you think?  Once the continual rise in temp is understood a reversal of that trend can begin. James and I found the answer and develop an inexpensive fix. But we found we were up against an entrenched bureaucracy which had spent hundreds of thousands of pounds over 2 years on wild goose chases. They were not about to let a couple of colonials  fish in their waters. We were faced with hostility from the engineers. The politicians wanted  a fix and still do. The overheating problem was only going to be solved by the engineers even if they had to steal the fix. If they could not steal ideas there would be no fix and there hasn’t been one to date. Londoners have no inkling that they are paying big money to be inconvenienced by a small group of selfish individuals.  The engineers wanted the recipe to our secret sauce WITHOUT SIGNING A CONTRACT. As the fall of that year arrived the plight of the passengers evaporated. Everyone is concerned when the roof leaks. When it stops raining the repairs still have to be made. But some people forget the leaks until the next downpour. Too many politicans forget the needed repairs when the pressure is off. So too the Tube saga. The Underground engineers had time on their side, things had cooled off and an election for Mayor was in the offing. I would guess that said engineers thought James and I could be talked into spilling the beans. We had expended our own money. However they did not know the Spratleys. Our name goes back to Yorkshire and the time of the Viking raids in 900 AD. It takes a stubborn Englisman to deal with a stubborn Englishman.I have been an inventor / idea man all my life. I have encountered many snakes who prowl the landscape preying on inventors and looking to steal ideas. This was happening 60 years ago and is happening in to-day’s world. I realized the game that the Underground was playing, I closed the file and James and I have gone on to other things. It is interesting that the Tube overheating problem still exists. Those responsible have never determined the problem and thus can’t arrive at the fix. I must admit that there has not been a repeat of the hot spell encountered when James and I were involved. The EU has regulations about the max temp allowed in subways. Interestingly, you can not ship cattle on a train at the temp set by the EU. However, due to Global Warming there will be more hot summers. Sometimes a scorcher can last for a week or longer. In that case, if the temp goes through the roof watch for the London Underground to be shuttered. Can you imagine that City without their Tube. If  it happens the problem can be laid squarely at the doorstep of a few engineers who put the presevation of their egos / reputations above the interests of the larger community. The very ridership they were paid to serve. In one short year I got a crash course on public transportation. I have many readers in the UK. I wonder if a rider who uses the Tube will pick up on this story and speak up. I became aware of the problems in this City’s public transportation system with various incidents involving the TTC and the proposal for a badly needed, direct, hi speed link between Union Station and Pearson. The Link idea has been bouncing around for a long time. Devious Dalt then put Rob Prichard in charge of Metrolinx and the red flag went up. Rob was a two time loser at that moment.  Prichard had been the President of the University of  Toronto from 1990 to 2000. His term was a rocky one, there were conflict of interest issues. Prichard and his friends decimated the U of  T professor’s pension fund by reducing its’ value to half. In 2001 Prichard took of the Toronto Star as CEO and proceeded to ruin the Paper. Rob and his friends [ another give away ]  loaded the Star with more than $ 500 million in debt. it is interesting that David Olive of the Star writes about business BUT ALWAYS AFTER THE FACT. THAT IS SAFE GROUND. Olive recently wrote about the demise of  newspapers  in North America. One of the main reasons for the failures according to Olive is the owners loaded the papers up with debt and the interest payments killed them. David in fear for his paycheque never mentioned that Prichard did exactly the same thing. He along with his buddies piled up the debt at the Star so much so the 100 year old Paper is doomed. Rob was asked to leave the Star by the Paper and was given $ 9 million to go away. That nine mill came right out of the pockets of Star employees. It shows  Prichard’s regard for Lady Black’s little people [ us ]. It has now come to light that Prichard is a behind the scenes lobbist for the MGM / Cadillac Fairview Casino bid. Rob can’t seem to keep his hand out of the cookie jar. Prichard plays both sides of the street and then some. He wants to eat his cake and have it three. I have said many time that McGuinty got a free house worth more than a million dollars. It would seem normal that devious Dalt shelled out money to his friends via Prichard. We should ask for Rob’s head on a platter. Toronto bid for the 2015 Pan Am and was successful. One of the conditions was a link from the airport to the City proper. VIPs and athletes were not about to spend an hour or so on # 401 getting back and forth. Metrolinx is a paper agency set up by McGuinty to handle the larger task of providing public transit across the GTA and to built the airport link. Our very own Rob Prichard reappeared as head of Metrolinx. This Liberal transport agency [ front ] swallowed GO Transit and has made a mess of that too. Ride GO lately?  Metrolinx Link maps appeared which made no technical sense to me. Statements made by Prichard in regards to the Link made no technical sense either. I communicated my concerns to Queen’s Park, Metrolinx and the $ media . There was as usual no acknowledgement.  Because of Rob’s background I concluded that McGuinty had set the Agency up as a money sewer to funnel funds to his friends just like Ornge. The Airport Link was yet another excuse, another way to siphon off funds and it  provides for great cover. The Link will not serve 90% of the population, the little people as Lady Black likes to call us. This is discrimination Toronto style.  Prichard was certainly the right guy for the job of Liberal Party bag man. A real uppity guy. Metrolinx has spent a ton of money and accomplished exactly zero. More recently McGuinty added Bruce McCuaig as CEO of Metrolinx. He’s a 20 year veteran Queen’s Park bureaucrat. Just the kind of visionary needed to solve Ontario’s public transportation problems. Not.  Bruce is a McGuinty stooge. McCuaig became CEO in July 2010 and on occasion just to prove he is indeed grossly incompetent has made various stupid statements. The $ media duly prints them, making no comment. The most recent utterance from McCuaig is that he is going to charge for GO parking. We need an affordable / fast / convenient transportation system to get people out of their cars. Soaking the shit out of them is not the way to go. But then McCuaig is just a puppet on strings, there to facilitate McGuinty and friends skimming off taxpayer’s cash and the use of Metrolinx for Liberal political gain. If you go on the net there are a number of maps of the Metrolinx Airport Link. The Link will use 50 year old diesel locomotives and refurbished cars. It will use the existing rail right of way now used by GO and freight trains. There will only be a couple of stops between the airport and Union Station and the service won’t be available to the public. In a sense the Link is a private diesel rail taxi service for the Pan Am Games created at public expense. Prichard said it will only be needed for two weeks but will serve generations. Bullshit. Mind, the Link will be cheaper than closing # 401 for the 2 week duration of the Games. If you look at the map of the Link you will see a 200 deg hook at the top end which is 2 km long. The existing rail track goes right by the race track toward the N / W. That hook seems to make use of a phantom industrial spur line that was there 50 years ago. The Link route goes right through the middle of an industrial park filled with giant warehouses etc. This last 2 kms of the Link is shown trespassing on property not owned by Metrolinx. Ontarians are being lied to one more time. I bought this matter up 2 years ago with the Government, Metrolinx and included the $ media but I was ignored. The papers can’t make any money telling the truth, lies pay much better. At that time I forecast this scenerio. Without being told, Pan Am visitors would be bused the 2 kms from the airport to the main rail line after which they would be wisked away to Union Station aboard 50 year old refurbished diesel locomotives / cars. And for this we are going to pay more than$ 400 million. Can you imagine world travellers returning home and reliving their ride on such ancient trains. This will surely be a feather in the cap of Canadians, we are fast becoming a third rate power. Caused by a small number of people helping themselves to the wealth of the nation. The Air Rail Link [ a separated company ] is headed by the usual know nothing McGuinty appointee. Kathy Haley, is Pres. of the Link and has absolutely no mechanical / transportation experience. In the past, Kathy [ the coffee lady ]  set up On The Go coffee  shops in service stations. Just what we need, the head of brain surgery, someone who has never even been in a hospital parking lot. In fact if you go on the net you can see the number of suits who run Metrolinx. 3 men have technical experience. A yank, who comes from the public transportation sector in California. he would really understand Toronto’s needs, right? One Englishman who really knows what Torontonians need, right? The third is a Canadian with experience at CN / CP. Another knowledgeable  public transit person. Little wonder the Province’s public transit is in such disarray. Not one person in management or on the Board at Metrolinx has any first hand Canadian / Toronto public transit experience. A huge expensive boondoggle. It is a rerun of the blind leading the blind and costing us a fortune. Metrolinx was a public relations front for devious Dalt. Announcements and initiatives were timed to buy votes for the Liberals. I would suggest that behind the scenes Rob Prichard runs the same kind of operation that we are seeing at Ornge. McGuinty’s pals making a killing. In any event we will find out the level of bribes and graft once the rebuilding of the GTA public transit system begins, then we can have a much closer look.  Union Station has great potential to be this great City’s centre. It is now a dismal place, badly operated. The people involved in this mismanagement should be lined up along the front of the Royal York and shot. The Station is like a sewer. Everyone coming into the centre of the City is dumped into it. So crawl out and then proceed to their real destination. Union Station is actually a transportation choked point, ignored and unloved. By putting an elevated, electrified SkyLiner system all around the outer boundry of Toronto rider could go where they want to go, in a timely fashion and stay out of the downtown. The bonus here is getting drivers out of their cars. The SyLiner would be cheaper, faster and have a much smaller environmental footprint. Union Station could be developed into a destination spot  rather than a choke point. All the residents of the GTA could could come into the City see a show, catch hockey, dine and sight see. Then be wisked home in quick grand style without have to drive. Sound to be too good to be true. It is within our reach. We just have to stop electing to politicians who are dullards, who have no vision, who act like sheep and subscribe to a set ideology and whose main aim is not filling their pockets at the expense of the people.

Public transit WILL NOT BE IMPROVED UNTIL GRIDLOCK, CYCLISTS AND PEDESTRIANS ARE FACTORED INTO THE MIX. A new Provincial agency must be formed to take over Metrolinx, GO and the TTC. Maybe People Transit might be a good name, with two aims. Providing services the residents of the GTA to the max and at the lowest possible cost. Right now public transit serves the interests of politicians and those who operate the system. As far as the cost is concerned it amounts to whatever they decide THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH, the cost benefit rule is never applied. To create the public transit the City dwellers desire and deserve we need to know what the problems are. This has yet to be done. Read on.

**********************                                                                                                                                              **********************

Toronto as a City grew like an inverted T. Settlement spread along the lakeshore and up Yonge St. The longest road in the world, laid by John Graves Simcoe, in 1793. The topgraphy of Toronto determined its’ growth pattern. Going from east to west is the old shore of Lake Iroquois, a remnant of the ice age. Just below St. Clair there is a steep hill going across Bayview Ave., Yonge St., Avenue Rd., Bathurst St., Dufferin St. and so on. In the early days of the City one could only gain access to the heights by using Yonge St. So growth took place to the north and either side of Yonge St. And this thinking has dominated development and public transit ever since. Mel Lastman’s expensive Sheppard Ave. subway shows this Neanderthal approach. But once the leadership is taken over by those who always do things the way they have always done things, look out. Decay sets in. Grow or die is forgotten. There was an attempt to use Bathurst St. to get to the heights. Horse drawn wagons climbed the hill starting at Davenport Ave. near Castle Loma up, over to Bathurst. Bathurst only went north of St. Clair about 1/4 mile and hit a ravine. So a log road was put in from Bathurst and St. Clair to Dufferin and Eglinton [ Fairbank ] to take advantage of the fact that Dufferin St. from there on north was level / dry and gave access to all of the farms. The plank road was put in to overcome the swampy ground, we know it as Vaughan Rd.  I went to Vaughan Rd. Public and Vaughan Rd. High Schools. The first area on the heights to be considered for development other than the Yonge St. corridor was between Bathurst / Caledonia and Eglinton / Lawrence. To facilitate this development the beltline railway was built in 1890. These far seeing people did the right thing at the wrong time. A recession in the early 1890s killed the project. It was a circular rail line that could transport people / goods all around the outside of the then City to home base at Union Station. The value of  this orbital approach to a public transportation system is completely lost on the planners at Metrolinx to-day. This is not a surprise because nobody in the management of Metrolinx has Canadian public transit experience and few of them know the GTA itself. What are we going to get out of this lot? Hefty bills, that’s about all. Downtown was the centre of the universe in Toronto early on but then things began to change. We changed from a lay out using an inverted T to an inverted Xmas tree.  Public transit lines went off in all directions but they required the riders to come back to the centre before going out in another direction. If you lived in Rexdale there was no easy way to get to Scarborough. If you lived in Scarborough and didn’t have a car, forget about getting a job at Pearson. Even as we contemplate spending $ 50 billion over 25 years on the Metrolinx, ” BIG MOVE ” [ I call it the BIG THEFT ] we are still tied to the inverted Xmas tree. Rob Prichard and his team are like milk cart horses, they have basic skills but never progress any further. They keep on doing the same stupid things over and over. This was bad news for the riders seeing as Metrolinx has had McGuinty’s full support to spend the $ 50 billion. And others with better ideas haven’t been able to get a word in edgewise but that is about to change. Devious Dalt has run away in disgrace hoping he can avoid criminal charges. People are not prepared to pay additional taxes and road tolls to stay in the same place, Gridlock and lousy public transit.  Toronto got itself into this mess with the arrival of Jane Jacobs, an American fleeing the law and having little understanding of the City’s problems. Jane had been involved with a group in NY City who wanted to stop an expressway from cutting through an area of older buildings, low rent housing and an artist colony. Jacobs was part of that leadership but left before the mission was completed to make sure her two sons were not caught in the Vietnam draft. But in these parts Jane gets all the credit for the N Y protest campaign. Others actually finshed the job, no thanks to Jacobs. Another interesting part about Jane is she wanted to stop cars going through her neighbourhood in NY but she gave no thought as to what to do with those vehicles. When she was asked about cars Jacobs said it was not her problem. Jane had a pie-in-the-sky view of life. The interest of other never entered her mind, nor did it for her FEW SUPPORTERS in Toronto. Her motto cities are for people was simplistic and attractive and wrongheaded. The 70% of  Torontonians who own cars are people too. But they didn’t count with the Stop Spadina crowd. The S. S.  little enclave was to be saved from being despoiled by other citizens exercising their right to go anywhere on Toronto streets. I can drive on your road but you can’t come on mine. Toronto papers loved this scrap and the public was never given the other side of the story. Traffic / public transit planning started after WW 11 and by 1960 it had become integrated. The two were to be developed together. The Spadina Expressway as a 4 lane thru road with public transit in between the lanes. And entire City plan had been developed, new road and transit lines. Jane’s and her small band of shit disturbers treated the the Spadina Ex. as if it was the super highway in New York City. The papers, like puppies wagging their tails went along for the ride never think of thinking for themselves as to the value of the traffic / transit plan to the whole City. Candidates for City Council jumped on the bandwagon, ” cities are for people “, was mindless but sounded good. With only 30% of the voters turning out for municipal elections Jacob’s pitch resonated with enough people to elect car hating Councillors. That attitude lasted till David Miller quit in 2010 [ about 35 years ].   Bill Davis became the Leader of the PCs in the spring of 1971, he faced an election in the fall of 71.  The Stop Spadina movement got press way beyond their numbers and having Jane Jacobs involved carried extra weight. Davis was concerned that the Spadina question would cost him votes, so he cancelled funding. That and the funding for Catholic high schools was badly handled by Davis. I worked for him but was not pleased on these two fronts. When the Spadina Ex. unravelled the whole Toronto Traffic / Transit plan fell apart.  Council did not revist the plan and instituted a war on cars. Drive people out of their vehicles and they will be forced to take the TTC. With a steady stream of new riders promised the TTC could coast on its’ reputation and no attention had to be paid to customer service. Just sit there and count the money. So we have had 35 years of purposely impeding vehicles by Toronto Traffic Services. Cars were supposed to disappear and the TTC could bolster service as it saw fit, the new riders had no recourse. Gridlock was not supposed to happen. Drivers said to Council, screw you I will continue to drive my car. Councillors said to Toronto Traffic create even more barriers and so it went. Now Toronto is in one king size mess thanks to Jane Jacobs, Councillors who got voted in on a ticket of banning vehicles, Toronto Traffic Services with its’ anti car management and the $ media which loves a good controversy even if the end result is the destruction of  the City. Now the movers and takers, along with the insiders want YOU TO PAY FOR 35 YEARS OF MISMANAGEMENT. Knowing how we got to this point will allow us to reverse the process. Torontonian are now faced with a possible soaking if Kathleen Wynne, John Tory, Carol Wilding et al get their way with the help of the ever ready $ media. The rich and powerful are now pushing a discussion as to how you will pay to clean up this mess. They have decided THAT YOU WILL PAY THE BILL. But you will be free to decide how to pay the bill. Nice, the decision makers have decided you will drink poison and are giving you a choice of what brand of poison you prefer. I say don’t pay a bloody cent. John Tory and Mitzie Hunter co authored a piece in the Sun onFeb. 7 /13 about Gridlock / transit. These two are fronts for the movers and takers. The Sun just printed this crap. I would say to Tory and Hunter, your next article must contain a detailed plan and cost for its’ implementation. No excuses. I don’t think they have one.  There is an affordable way to proceed with Gridlock and  Transit but the problem is those on the inside, the backers of John and Mitzie will not be able to profit from the fixes I am proposing. That’s your choice. Are you interested in your interests or are you going to accomodate the elites?  Gridlock I have already tackled, let’s do public transit. Call your MPP.

The Big Theft is supposed to cost $ 50 billion. I can just see the insiders, they are already licking their chops and figuring out how to spend YOUR MONEY.  We already have an inverted Xmas tree, subways, streetcars, buses and GO transit system. The expansion of the transportation system with Rob Prichard at the head of Metrolinx. While the world electrifies he plays around with 50 year old diesel technology. Toronto is suffering from gun violence. When all of this activity is plotted on a map it is clear most of it happen in working class areas. And yet Prichard’s transit plans relate to the affluent parts of the city. The GTA is being asked to contribute to provide services to the rich. Mel Lastman’s ill fated Sheppard Subway goes from nowhere to nowhere within an affluent area. Those in Rexdale and Scarborough are locked in for lack of public transit. Their job opportunities are limited and the tough life breed violence. Metrolinx should be put down. This great City is so poorly managed, it is enough to make on weep. It is time the Legislature put its’ ass in gear. The trick is to take everything in this mix and give it a role to play. The subways, streetcars and GO are on fix rails. The subways traverse the densely populated area of the City just like London UK.  But if you are at the west end of the Bloor subway and wanted to go to Finch and Yonge you would have to go into the City before going north. What if we had a orbital Elevated Electric People Mover that would take you around the outside of Toronto. You could go from the end of Bloor Street to Finch across to Yonge then down into the City. You can imagine being anywhere in the City and going around the outside then into your destination, maybe a trip of 20 minutes. I’ll bet you would leave the car at home. London now has 3 orbital subway systems and another coming on stream. They are called inner [ going back 100 years ], middle, outer and the super outer. Toronto doesn’t even have one although the 1960s City traffic / transit plan had an orbital line. Vancouver has an orbital line.  No, we are mired in the past, 50 year old refurbished diesel trains for our Airport Link at  just $ 400 million a pop. This, thanks to retarded thinkers like McGuinty and his errand boy, Rob Prichard. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaa Some of London’s subways run at grade or are elevated, depending on the terrain [ go on the net, look up Orbirail and see what we are missing ]. Each line runs on a dedicated track and never encounters vehicular traffic. Our streetcars are located in the older parts of the Toronto. The GO lines all come in to Union Station from outside with no stops in the city proper. Bus routes try to fill in the voids and of course have to fight cars for road space, the service is miserable as Gridlock get worse. More than three years ago I proposed an Orbital elevated electric system called the Skyliner. I made drawing and circulated the proposal to devious Dalt, Queen’s Park, Metrolinx and of course the $ media. I never got a bite. When I first started blogging I wrote about my Orbiral plan, again no response. Now 3 years later things, are much worse and yet the people responsible can only think of soaking you even more. Picking your pocket makes it look like they are doing something useful. With the hot Tube problem in London the engineers were spending tens of thousands of Pounds chasing wild geese. They refused to let anyone else into the game. The politicians didn’t demand results and the overheating has never solved. Mayor Ken Livingstone offered a prize of $ 250,000 to cool the tube. James and I did just that but the Mayor wouldn’t pay off. Livinstone was running a scam. His engineers were involved in the contest, they were looking for ideas to purloin which they could claim as their own. David Waboso and Isabel Dedring [ assistants to Mayor Johnson should look up the Spratley file ]. The same elite process is taking place here in Toronto. The public is being invited to become involved but this too is a scam. The Liberal machine and Prichard have their own agenda. and don’t care what the citizens think or say. Those in charge are incompetent and intent on thievery. And up to now they have been protected by McGuinty. Fortunately for us Dalt is no more, he is actually in hiding. The Liberals are toast if  Wynne doesn’t address Gridlock / public transit. But she’ll get no extra taxes and of course no road tolls either. Here is the plan.

**********************                                                                                                                                               **********************

The Electronic Elevated People Mover [ EEPM ] [ Skyliner ] made by Bombardier is the key to the new system. It is clear we can’t add any more traffic to the roads. Better still would be to take some traffic off the roads. If 50 miles of Skyliner track eliminates 15% of the Gidlock and we can reduce Gridlock another 25% by reversing the traffic impediments installed by anti car Councils over the past 30 years we’d be getting close to a 50% reduction. The actual reduction of Gridlock alone might cost to $ 1.5 million including my fee of $ 250,000 [ plus costs ]. The main cost would be creating the grid of thru streets. The price for 50 miles of skyliner track, trains and hardware would probably be about $ 10 Billion spread over the 5 years of implementation. The BIG THEFT [ 25 years ] [ $ 50 billion ], is a plan put forward by Rob Prichard / Metrolinx, being promoted by John Tory and the Toronto Board of Trade and fully endorsed by the $ media [ because they are being paid to promote Liberal propaganda ]. This Big Theft is like buying a 19 in TV from the 1950s instead of buying a Blackberry. The important factor now in play is for the $ media to only let you see the options put forward  by the Liberal machine. This what Hitler’s book burning was all about, keep the population ignorant. A Skyliner has an aluminum fuselage like  a Boeing / Airbus. It is wide bodied as to VIA trains [ 6 abreast with 2 aisles ]. Each car is self propelled with electric motors in the bogies. The bogies are rubber tired for quiet operation. Individual trains can have one to 6 cars depending on traffic. Each train will have a steward / stewardess. Trains will be automated, no driver. On a 6 car train you will be able to walk from end to end. There will be provision for cycles, strollers and luggage. The Skyliners will be climate controlled. What it is is a modern, wide bodied train on legs. The Blu Line will run from Malvern, west across the City above Finch and down to Pearson Airport [ maybe 12 stops ]. All of the northern GO lines [ green ] will intersect with the Blu line. People in the GTA will be able to travel by GO, to the Blu Line, transfer over and be whisked into the airport terminal. The Red line will run from Union Station and meet the Blu line at the Etobicoke North GO Station. Travellers from the City will transfer to the Blu Line for the trip to the airport [ maybe 5 stops ]. The Purple Line will go from the Bloor Subway, up the Don Valley, intersect with the easterly end of the Sheppard subway and then on up to the Blu Line at # 404. The Silver Line will go from the end of the Bloor Subway at Kennedy and Eglinton, through the Scarborough Town Centre to Malvern. This technology is being used in many advanced cities around the world with great success. It is time to say bye, bye to Prichard’s 50 year old diesels. Rob’s Airport Link has been set up as a separate company so it can be sold to the private sector the minute the Pan Am Games are over. As envisaged the Link will always be a money loser so the sale will be a deal to subsidize operation with tax dollars to guarantee a profit. I’ll bet Prichard and McGuinty’s pals have already worked out the deal. This is the same thing that happened with Bruce Power and Highway # 407. The PC Party machine had its’ nose in the # 407 trough too. Neither of those give aways would stand close scrutiny. I wrote to devious Dalt offering to go through the # 407 contract, everyone knows it was flawed and said flaws would void the contract. And probably send some of the PC insiders to jail let alone the bandits who lease # 407. I would see the cars being built in Toronto by Bombardier, the tracways and pylons [ made from alloy steel tube ] could be prefabricated in the abandon GM plant in Oshawa. In every spot for a pylon all that would be needed is poured concrete footing. The actual system would be bolted together on site like a Meccano set. In Kingston the carbon fiber cladding could be made for the tracways, pylons and stations / car barns etc. The prefabricated / modular stations and bogies could be manufactured in Windsor to take advantage of their heavy industry capabilities. All of the electronics, controls, monitoring equipment, third rails, motors etc could be made in North Bay. In terms of North Bay there are a couple of considerations. China is selling this type of product to the Tar Sands, pipelines, municipal transit authorities and city water systems. China doesn’t have to invade Canada. Once they have a toe in the door with buying tar sands properties as part of their oil banking they can withhold parts from Canadian businesses and operators. Worse still they could then easily hack our systems and shut whole cities and industries down. The Greater Toronto Transit Corp. should be totally self sufficient. Everything made in Ontario and all the jobs kept here in  this Province [ unions welcome ]. Since so much of this sysyem is new technology, universities and colleges would be needed to train people for the new tasks. Two special groups should be tapped for their skills. Canada’s Veterans and First Peoples. Once the Skyliners are up and running, within 5 years I can see the TTC having to rearrange the bus routes to take advantage of the thru street grid and to connect to the Skyliner tracways. This concept means you will be able to go anywhere in the City to anywhere in the City, quickly. Those in the GTA will be able to drive to a GO station at a distance, park, travel to a Skyliner station and go anywhere in the City quickly. The hydro electric capacity / potential in Northern Ontario is soon going to come back on stream. There are more than 100 hydro plants which have been mothballed by McGuinty and the nukies. The nuclear industry is scared shitless of water. They have no presence in Manitoba nor do they now in Quebec. AEC built 2 nukes in that Province at a cost of over $ 3 billion. The nukies could never get Gentilly One operational. It did not produce a single commercial KW in its’ entire life. Gentilly Two has just been closed for good by Quebec. It is in urgent need of costly repairs. But Quebec has watched the nukies make a mess of the single nuke in New Brunswick. Two years behind the repair schedule and almost a $ billion overun. Quebec said no thanks and has gone back to relying on hydro. McGuinty and his nukie friends [ who gave the Dalt a free million dollar house ] have kept Ontario’s water under raps for years.  Demand for electricity has dropped because people can’t pay 20 cents a KW. So the nukies have been closing hydro plants where the cost of a KW is 1/2 a cent behind the dam. If we finally smarten up and go all water the nukes and the coal plants will be toast. And the nukies will become extinct. With cheap / clean KWs  available we can have Dedicated Deliver of electricity to the Skyliner control centre. New water turbines are on the drawing board which would improve the efficiency of Ontario’s hydro plants by about 25%. I see North Bay as the place to design and build those new turbines. Moving into these new areas gives us an opportunity to involve the First Peoples. Rob Prichard should be sent packing, he is a disgrace. This time he doesn’t get a dime for doing badly. If I get a chance I will want to go through all his deals with McGuinty’s friends. We should be able to get some dough back and maybe even a jail term or three. In terms of John Tory, he doesn’t get it, people want rid of him. His best-before-date is way passed. I would suggest to John, just go away and find something useful to do with yourself. Stop bothering Ontarians.

HIGHWAY #407 EXPROPRIATION   —   I have been writing about this subject for years. Hwy # 401 was being built as a Toronto Bypass when I was a kid. Immediately it opened it was obsolete as Torontonians used it to get from Kennedy Rd. to Dufferin. It became a thru Hwy for internal traffic. Since # 401 was designed for 8 lanes the centre 4 became the Express and the outer lanes became the Collectors. Get on the Express and you have a very limited number of interchanges. But along the way traffic continued to increase especially trucks going around the City. So a new Toronto Bypass was planned, # 407. Develoment was bobbing along quite nicely when a thoroughly dishonest politician came along. No silly, I don’t mean McGuinty. No, the dishonest one before him, Mike Harris. Our boy Mike [ and to think I worked for this guy ], was running a hidden deficit of $ 3.5 billion. I didn’t know and I believe most rank and file PCers didn’t know either. Those who did know, John Baird,  Jim Flaherty, Tony Clement, John Snobelen and Tim Hudak among others. Mike came up with an angle to raise funds, lease # 407 to the private sector and sell Ontario Hydro to private companies. The sale of our electrical system blew me and my friends in Pickering away. I walked away from the PCs and have never looked back. They have moved too far right for my taste. I am a student of history I view Hudak and his little band of Canadian Republicans as Fascists just like Herr Harper. # 407 got leased to a band of  bandits who are holding Ontarians for ransom. They act like the mob. People who use # 407 pay high rates to go from nowhere to nowhere, it was designed as a Toronto Bypass and isn’t being used for that purpose now. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.  The leasees of  # 407 were given a licence to extort money from us by Harris. He didn’t suceed in selling Ontario Hydro, Mike was stopped by the Courts. But he did screwed things up royally by splitting it into 5 bits. But as you know we will begin fixing the electrical system shortly. Either the Legislature will get its’ act in gear or you will force the fix by picking up a pitchfork. Harris could see his defeat in the crystal ball and ran away. Just like McGuinty. Probably both of them were motivated by the same fear, the fear of jail time. I always thought the # 407 deal smelled. Then I found out that agreement was flawed in a way that would void it. I offered to review the document for McGuinty to see if we could nulify the lease. As per usual devious Dalt ignored me. # 401 is pumping far too much carbon monoxide into Toronto’s air. Other cities have tested for levels of this killer. People are dying from Carbon Monoxide poisoning sitting in traffic jams in the USA. We have a grandstander and headline hunter in our City Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David McKeown. I have written to him about testing for Carbon Monoxide but he apparently unmoved, obviously too busy polishing his image. Besides Big Oil would not like people to know about the dangers.  A kid died here while sitting in a car that had been backed into snow drift after the last storm. Carbon Monoxide lurks around our many streets especialy those that are low lying or in hollows. I recommend tests be done particularly  along # 401, this is important. The Legislature must be mindful of the health of the people and when we have the documentation that traffic must be cut on # 401 we have the legal right to expropriate # 407. I would suggest that we offer to buy # 407  at the going rate, a fair offer. If not, we should go through the # 407 lease to find out  just what hanky panky Mike Harris and the PC Party machine were up to. I think it will look a lot like Ornge. And when we get to look at Metrolinx we will find the same result, insiders self dealing. And political payoffs. So we begin by reducing Toronto’s Gridlock by 25%. During that exercise we begin building 50 miles of Skyliner tracways. And we start the process of taking back # 407. Toronto is a great City being run into the ground by the greed of  right wing which amounts to no more tha 15% of the population. So Nietzsche. Rule by the elites. You know that small group of exceptional people who decided themselves that they were exceptional. The other 85% has to get its’ act together and take action. The votes of  each exceptional person count the same as our votes. Mike Harris and Conrad Black only think they are more important than the rest of us. This we have to make them understand. You owe that to your grandchildren to fight back against exceptionalism. For some time I have been doing research on carbon monoxide [ a killer ] and other polutants from the exhaust pipes of vehicles. This problem is being studied around the world but little us being done in North America. First of all the US oil cartel doesn’t like this kind of thing and like climate change spends tens of million to squelch such studies. And where do you think the tens of millions goes to. Right, the $ media which is paid to censor the news, spin the news and feature news full of lies. It would seem that the people who live within 500 ft of the south side of # 401 are at risk healthwise. Especially children. Those under 2 could end up with restricted lung capacity or asthma. Older folk can be affected by a steady diet of carbon monoxide. Hwy 401 is used by through truck traffic when it was always meant to be on # 407. Truckers won’t pay the tolls the bandits are charging. So # 407 is a highway that goes from nowhere to nowhere in the big picture but is used by the elites as a private expressway. Of course the important people can take the charge off their company taxes. WE GET SCREWED AGAIN. Harris made an under the table deal with the bandits for # 407. Let’s undo that deal [ expropriate it ]. Make it a free highway. And finish the thing to join up with with # 401 at Hwy # 35.  This whole # 407 caper is stomach turning. Harris leased our highway to the private sector so he could cover his ass. Now Mike’s folly is maiming our young and killing the elderly. Tim Hudak [ Mike Light ] wants to double down on the Harris misadventures. No thanks. Hudak has never had a job in his life. He is just a mouthpiece for the PC Party machine [ not my PC Party ]. Tim was around when I was working for Harris. I was not impressed then and I am not impressed now. In fact I am leaning to putting Mike Harris in jail along with devious Dalt McGuinty.

OIL AND NATURAL GAS / THE GREAT PIPELINE SWINDLE / WALL ST. GETS READY TO TAKE ANOTHER BITE / AND THE $ MEDIA CAN’T WAIT FOR ITS’ POUND OF FLESH  —   Ontarians have to take some of the responsibility for this Province’s ruined economy. Since 1985 we have moved away from the winning Governmental formula of the previous 42 years of the PCs [ Frost, Robarts and Davis ]. Ontarians thought the good time would roll on for ever and stopped minding the store. My PCs were taken over by the hard right wing in 1985 when we chose Frank Miller, Leader, he was a puppet and a disaster. Frank called an election too quickly and was gone in 7 months. I myself didn’t catch on to the right shift right away.  This opened the door to David Peterson, one of Ontario’s worst Premiers ever. Peterson was supported by Bob Rae for a short time until the public saw David as he was, a small minded / vindictive man. Peterson got the heave ho and Rae took the brass ring by default. Ontarians were sick of the Liberals  and my PCs. The NDP had no governing experience and took over just as a major recession hit. I have said before that there was not a single person in Provincial politics who could have handled well the economic slump. 1990 – 1996 was a period of financial nightmares made far worse by David Peterson’s bungling. A slow down was certainly on its’ way but Peterson supplied extra gasoline and matches to make the confligration even more intense. David, ” The Stupid ” , owes Ontarians an apology. Rae was defeated by my pal Mike Harris. I worked for him on the assumption that we would pick up where Bill Davis left off.  Wrong. The Fascists who now inhabited the PCs, under Harris dispensed with the PC grassroots, the strength of our Party. Rather, a PC party machine came into being and Mike lost touch with the voters. In 1999 Harris won with a much reduced majority and that should have been a red flag but it wasn’t. The PC back room boys / girls felt that the citizenry was so sick of the NDP and the Liberals that the right could get away with anything. In 2003 McGuinty came to office with what I though would be a strong grassroots. It is only through the events at the Federal level that I discovered that the Liberals  both in Ottawa and Queen’s Park had jettisoned their grassroots just like the Tories. So what we had up to the time of Kathleen Wynne’s election as Party Leader is the Liberals and the PCs being manipulated by political machines, little people [ as lady Black calls us ] involvement was ziltch. Without citizen imput we have had lousy Government for the last 15 years which has seen the Province go bankrupt. Some people have stopped voting which just plays into the hands of the Liberal / PC Party machine’s hands. Things can only get worse if YOU go AWOL. According to the plan, the Prov. Liberal machine would continue to hold power. Sandra Pupatello [ the Iron Lady ] was not going to recall the House and the Libs would carry on with their agenda of picking the bones of the Province clean. During the lull while OUR MPPs were in the wilderness, the Grits would find another way of thwarting democracy. Wynne’s election was a surprise to devious Dalt and and his machine. But the fireworks at the Legislature in the last couple of days confirms the Liberal insiders’ worst fears. They are still in the minority. And the hunt for scalps is back on. We may well see McGuinty / Bentley in jail.. Other than that little has changed. Both the Liberals and the PCs here are in bed with the US oil cartel. Devious Dalt has made big hidden payments to TransNotCanada pipe in terms of the gas plants and Bruce Power. TransNotCanada [ it is owned by Wall St. ] also pays Tim Hudak’s wife to act as a consultant. I’ll tell you what folks, if YOU don’t lift a finger over this, guess what. When  the PCs come back again, drop your pants, bend over and just smile if you can. Like with Herr Harper both Mike Harris and Dalt McGuinty welcomed the oil / nat. gas companies as well as the pipeline people. Talk about Alberta being oil landlocked poor Ontario is in the sights of the energy interests with nobody to protect us either. We have high gasoline and natural gas price that border on usuary. Under Canadian law it is a criminal act to charge immoral / unethical interest rates. It is only a small step to charging energy rates based on lies and price rigging. Why do we keep electing politicians who take bribes. Is Hudak [ now with a fat banks account ] really going to go after TransNotCanada???  When oil was first found in Alberta, Ontario was singled out by the Feds and forced to buy oil and gas from that Western Province. This at an inflated price. So Ontarians like me were forced to pay extra for our gasoline to put Albertans into the oil business. They had no MONEY, no OIL INFRASTRUCTURE, no ROAD SYSTEM and no MARKET FOR THEIR OIL. Most Ontarians felt like me. It was a small price to pay to be Canadian. Once the oil industry matured the Yanks took over and develped the market for oil in the USA.  Alberta gets a royalty of  about 8%.  Jobs were created and the money flowed in, no sweat. The only problem early on in Calgary / Edmonton was how to spend the money? Mind, putting all your eggs in one economic basket is a dangerous game. even if you are rolling in dough. But what goes up can come down. The Albertans are more right wing than the rest of Canada. This is understandable due to the influx of Republicans. I think at times the Americans in the Province think they have grabbed part of the West that eluded them in the War of 1812. It has been said many ways but here is Prime Minister Anthony Eden’s take on it in 1954, ” In peace and war action is determined by events not a fixed ideology “. He was speaking of Communism but this applies equally to the Fascists / right wing ideology. For Republicans from Calvin Coolidge to Ronald Reagan to George Bush Jr. to Herr Harper this in fact has been the fatal flaw. Everything that happened / happens was / is filtered by them through their Nietzsche inspired right wing ideas. It won’t work and has never worked. Look at the USA these day, destitute and ungovernable [ thanks to the right ]. And look where Canada is being taken by Harper, ruination awaits us too. In 1973 the US oil cartel precipitated a crisis by attempting to muscle the Arabs into lowering their oil prices. Countries in the middle east banded together [ OPEC ] and shut off the tap to the US and other select countries. The cartel blundered and caused great hardship to Americans but the oilies successfully avoided being held responsible with the help of the $ media. Just like the 2008 / 2009 crash. Wall St.  never accepted responsiblility and nobody on the Street has ever gone to jail. Again the perpetrators had the help of the $ media [ lots of money changed hands ]. During the early 1970s Alberta suffered the $ shorts but as time went along oil prices rose to ridiculous heights. Albertans got 8% of a much higher barrel price and for about 6years the party rocked. Then came the Iranian revolution [ 1979 ] which again shocked the petroleum world. Those involved, including the oil cartel / Alberta anticipated even higher prices for oil. Trudeau was concerned that in a crunch the US oil cartel would look after American demands first and Canada might be left up shit crick. The cartel was obligated to supply the US first under the Coolidge / Republican deal that granted them an illegal oil monopoly in the 1920s. Although this Country had / has vast oil supplies there was every indication we could be brought to our knee with this America First attitude. So Trudeau developed the National Energy Program that would impell our Yankee visitors to SHARE OUR WEALTH, with us that is. But Trudeau’s Program never had time to bite. Seeing the possible outcome of the fighting in Iran, notably adversely affecting the US economy the Saudis flooded the market with cheap oil. Russia with new found oil decided to join in, take Iran’s market and put even more oil on the world market. You can go on the net and see a graph of oil prices going way down. The cheaper oil was already battering the price even before Trudeau got into the act. The selfish US oil cartel driven by naked greed had made a mess of things all over again. As a result of the actions of the cartel, Albertans were hard hit financially. The Americans are past masters at shifting the responsibilities for problems onto someone else’s shoulders. The US cartel never takes blame ever for its’ mistakes and starting in 1981 the oilies began blaming Trudeau and the NEP. Something we still hear about, even to-day. To be true to the right wing t0-day every new journalist who wants to guarantee his / her pay cheque must include mention of the NEP at least 3 times in each piece. Tens of millions have been spent by the oilies on promoting this lie. How many times does Ezra Le Rant write / say NEP. He gets paid for every mention I am sure. The NEP gave the young wimp from Toronto [ Stevie Harper ], a phony cause to fight for. The cartel owned / owns the petrol press [ 1970 / 2000 ] [ now it owns all of the Canadian press ].  The true story of the economic downturn in Alberta in the 80s was /is never told. A wedge was driven between that Province and Eastern Canada by the oilies [ with the help of Manning, Harper and Conrad Black ], which remains to this day. The US oil cartel has again made a mess of things [ 2013 ] due to a lack of foresight. US demand for oil and nat. gas has dropped, we now have fracking and the world oil situation has changed dramatically [ there is a greater supply ]. The US cartel has fumbled the ball again and Alberta is expendable yet again. The Province has been cut adrift yet again. All the oilies want is their tar / cheap without environmental restraints.  Again blame has to be directed elsewhere and that elsewhere is Premier Redford. There hasn’t been a day since she was elected that the Premier hasn’t been attacked by the petrol media / Harper press. The oilies are spending big money on framing Redford.  The press’s covering for the cartel is there for everyone to see. The $ media is harvesting lots of nonsense oil ads [ at least $ 100,000 a pop ] which are meant to repay the media mogals for telling oilie lies. I especially like the one’s from CAPP, [ Can. Assoc. Petroleum Producers ]. They must be spending tens of millions buying up the media to brain wash YOU. Just like the Robo Calls.  That money would be far better spent on cleaning up the tar sands and tailing ponds. You remember, the tailing ponds that Joe Oliver drinks from. I saw Danielle Smith of the Wild Oil Party being interviewed on TV. As usual she sits there telling nothing but lies but that is understandable. Smith grew up under the wing of Tom Flanagan [ an American draft dodger ]. The US oil cartel pays her salary. So our very own Alison Redford is being Trudeaued. Exactly the same process in taking place as happened in the 1980s with the NEP. Albertan and Canadians are being lied to every day and the $ media is being well rewarded for fooling us. So now we come to the oil / nat gas swindle taking place in Ontario. In the NAFTA negotiations during which Mulroney gave away the Country, Western Canada was prohibited from sending OIL to the east. All of the oil in the West was earmarked for sale in the USA and gradually our refineries have been shut down by the cartel. Cheap oil goes out for which an 8% royalty is paid to Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. And expensive gasoline, diesel and petroleum products are shipped back into the West. I would suggest that the West actually gives its’ oil away for nothing. Harper gets big oil money under the table from the oilies but Elections Canada dozes on. This is a story the $ media will not touch. The Suzuki Foundation protecting the environment, now that is worth endless coverage. Lyin Steve taking cartel bribes, not a word. Ottawa gets taxes on the oil shipped to the US but THAT COST is actually being borne in fact by Westerners themselves. They are paying the cartel to take their oil away.  Harper is picking the pockets of his very own supporters. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Danielle Smith after the last election called Albertans stupid.  But forgive her. Flanagan has been saying such dumb things for years. Maybe Danielle is right, if they are actually giving away their oil?

*********************                                                                                                                                               *** *******************

The Gateway pipe is stalled. While Lyin Steve says the crude bitumen will go to Asia, that is a lie. Asia is up to its’ neck in oil and nat. gas. They don’t want our stuff. A couple of things must be understood. The US oil cartel can’t EXPORT OIL FROM AMERICA AND THERE IS NOW A GLUT. It’s a bitch, way too much oil and the cartel can’t peddle it. Crude bitumen / DilBit / tar slurry is not legally oil so it can be refined in the USA and exported. In the industry it is called mineral slurry  [  a mined mineral concentrate thinned to allow it to be transported by pipe to a processing plant ]. Such a slurry it is NOT TAXED.  The cartel and the pipe line companies have conspired to use their myriad of REFINED OIL PIPE LINES TO CARRY TAR SLURRY. In the mining industry a special hi strength plastic is used to transport mineral slurry because steel pipe won’t stand up to the grit. That is why DilBit spills now outnumber oil spills 4 to one. When lighter fluid is added the tar slurry it produces an explosive / toxic gas due to the overheating of the steel pipe. The friction comes from scouring by the quartz sand in the bitumen. It thus constitutes a hazardous material and should fall under special rules. But the US oil cartel pays politicians in the US and Canada so much money they look the other way. The $ media gets paid to look the other way too. Only when people get killed will this matter be addressed. Joe Oliver, Minister is supposed to look after the interests of Canadians. Instead, whenever the oilies show up in Ottawa our Joe waves the white flag and learns to tell new lies. In terms of the Gateway is really intended to take tar slurry to the heavy refineries in California. The 50 year old Morgan  Kinder oil line, recently purchased,  is already transporting tar slurry to California through Burnaby BC.  A  M – K spill of tar recently occurred in a residential area and ran into  Burrard Inlet. The Company claimed that it was oil that spilled, another lie. The national $ media did not cover this spill, they were paid not to. If there is news on a spill the $ media always says oil or crude , said to mislead YOU. Officially there is oil [ refined in some way ], there is crude oil [ it goes through an upgrader to remove all impurities and is the raw stock used to make petroleum products, it can be safely put through a steel pipe. ] and then there is crude bitumen [  tar in its' natural state, too thick to force through a pipe line without mixing it with lighter fluid ] [ this is called diluted bitumen, DilBit ]. DilBit IS NOT OIL. Oil pipeline are supposed to run at a temperature of about 75 deg F. DilBit being forced through a steel pipe runs at 150 deg F and then the mixture gets hotter as it travels further. Weak welds, the sandpapering of the interior of steel pipelines, restrictions [ bends / elbows ] and extra high pressure are pipe killers. So the Gateway tar will go to heavy refineries in California but Herr Harper and Joe Oliver won’t tell you that, neither will the $ media. We now come to Keystone XL. The last thing it does is excel. The same story applies here. It is all double talk without saying what is acually to be transported through the pipes. Since tar slurry is not considered oil there is no tax. Oil transmission is taxable. DilBit is 4 times more likely to spill and is ten times more costly to clean up. Since no tax is collected US / Can. governments do not have the funding to deal with DilBit spills. So our peoples are being sold a bill of goods by the $ media who get paid to lie and print oilie propaganda. The Keystone will travel from Alberta to Port Arthur Texas [ a tax free port ]. That means the US and Can. collect no taxes on the transportion of the tar slurry and that America get no taxes from Port Arthur. TranNotCanada builds pipe lines using limited partnerships and capped insurance. If there is a big spill the Company can just walk away from it. The Republicans keep telling their Country men / women how beneficial the Keystone will be. Not. Just more lies. As well the output of Port Arthur will be exported to the world market. Not a single gallon of gasoline will make it to an American service station. Keystone will provide at most 4000 temporary jobs. Not the tens of thousands of jobs Joe Oliver claims. Kinder Morgan, Gateway and Keystone pipe here and in the USA will be hidden limited partnerships and limited liability. Insurance companies are getting leary of DilBit and coverage is being capped. If there is another spill of DilBit like Kalamazoo / Enbridge the local community will have foot the bill for clean up. The Republicans in the US and Harper’s Fascists back limiting spill liability for firms. Harper is dragging his feet on tough enviromental regulations to facilitate a quick exit of the US oil cartel if necessary. Something that is coming. The Alberta is as good as out of the oil / nat. gas business. The Province will be left to clean up the toxic mess. But Danielle Smith of the Wild Oil Party will somehow find a way to blame Premier Reford for that too. In fact Redford is being blamed for high gasoline prices. So tar slurry is what the heavy refineries in California and Texas need — very— badly. You see these heavy refineries were built to refine cheap CRUDE OIL from Venezuela. The US oil cartel was stealing their resources as the cartel is now doing in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. There was a revolution in Venezuela and the Yanks were kicked out. The property of the US oil cartel was confiscated. The heavy refineries [ Texas / California ] were left sitting there with no product to refine. Someone came up with the idea of DilBit but the oilies didn’t tell the authorities what they were doing. Enbridge and TransNotCanada decided to start pumping DilBit though refined oil pipelines and we are gradually finding out the folly of such a dishonest move. It is not surprising. The aim of Wall St. and most big American businesses is to cheat, lie and steal. The environmental effects of DilBit and sand therein have never been studied. The cartel delays, delays, delays. Regulators in the US and Can. delay, delay, delay. The $ media is paid to lie, lie, lie. Now all the cartel wants is cheap tar slurry with no strings attached to make up for the lack of Venezuela crude oil. The Kinder Morgan pipe is likely to blow again any day. It is a 50 year old pipe line which will soon seccumb to the Quart sand in the tar. I hope it doesn’t happen in Vancouver harbour. If K M has another DilBit spill their application to twin the line is toast. The Gateway will probably never be built. The Keystone is more iffy. Even if Obama approves the line it will be tied up in the Courts for years. Can the heavy refineries in Texas and California hang on for another couple of years. I think not. The world oil business is changing on the fly. With Hugo Chavez now gone crude oil from Venezuela may begin to flow again. Then there would be no need for Girling’s Keystone XL. That would be a real joke on TransNot Canada investors and Albertans. What was fiction a month ago is now fact. I don’t think the US oil cartel has the smart people to get out of this bind. They are milk cart horses CEOs, used to doing the same thing day after day. Such CEOs find it difficult to change. Mainly because they are all right wing. The righties believe like George Bush Jr. and Steve Harper that one can create his own reality. However there is a real world out here where real problems have to be solved. Dwelling in La La Land ain’t the solution. Now we come to the present.

The scene.  Alberta. A Province of Canada whose recent history has been fabricated by the US oil cartel. It has oil, bitumen and natural gas in abundance. For 40 years there has aways been someone who came along to buy these commodities [ USA ]. Albertans were paid about 8% for the resourses, plenty of  jobs were created and economic activity created lots of spinoffs. But in the end the US oil cartel netted 90% of the value of what was taken out of the ground. In the last 6 years Alberta has lost $ 400 billion.  The Albertans chose to live a life where that very life was in someone elses hands and where that someone else profited most. Dependent entirely on the good will of that someone else [ the US oil cartel ]. Said cartel doesn’t have a good world track record when it comes to playing fair. During the OPEC / Iran revolution the cartel always maintained its’ profitability even if partners and associates had to be thrown under the bus. In 1981 the cartel threw Alberta under the bus and blamed Trudeau for the mishap. It cost the oilies a ton of money to buy up the $ media at that time to fool the public and blame the NEP for all ills.  But it was cheaper than paying Albertans what was owed to them. People in the Province fell for the oilie line.  Interestingly during the 1981 downturn in Alberta, Texas went through the exact same financial wringer, banks went broke, there were foreclosures, jobs were lost and businesses were closed. You can look at this one of two ways. Either Trudeau was so powerful he could alter the economy of  Texas with his NEP. Or Trudeau had no affect on Texas or Alberta with his NEP.  The latter is true. But when someone owns the press, as Herr Harper does now all kinds of silly ideas can be put into people’s heads. alberta would have been better off under Trudeau’s NEP. Tom Flanagan’s precipitous fall in recent days only occurred because he should not have been in such an exalted position. The Harper press has banished all counter opinion on orders of the PMO. Therefore those on the right now win every race. A gold medal won under such circumstances is no win at all. Flanagan was held aloft not by quality but by oil money. Since the takeover of Alberta by the cartel I don’t think there was any way the Province could have broken its’ oil chains.The people in there believed the oilie NEP myth and firewalled themselves off from the rest of Canada in their minds.  Now with the oil / nat. gas business going south. Albertans are being deserted by the US oil cartel. The question is, who will they turn to now??? Those Eastern bastards who gave them the first stake to get into the oil business? Like the Germans under Hitler, the people in Alberta had jobs, a roof, 3 squares, heat in the winter / cool in the summer, low taxes, pensions and health care. The only thing they didn’t have was freedom.  Alberta now has complete freedom but no business.  Herr Harper / Danielle Smith are in denial and will not acknowlege the market destruction. The oil / nat. gas business has been turned on its’ ear because of fracking. In typical Yankee style there was an unrestricted dash to get into fracking [ oil / nat. gas ]. Americans don’t like our supply management systems but I much prefer our systems to their’s. The everyone for himself provides little comfort for the general population. Really the fracking boom is all about sellling stock to suckers, egged on by the thought of an EXXON buyout of  their company.  There is a glut of nat. gas stateside and nobody can make any money extracting it.  To add to the pain there is now a glut of oil and the bad 1981 dream is reoccurring. But with a difference. Nat. gas can be retrieved and used immediatley. Oil, no matter where it comes from has to be refined [ 2 or 3 stages ] to be used. It is the guys with the refineries who control the game to-day, the US oil cartel. They have closed most of Canada’s refineries in anticipation of falling demand for oil. By taking away our refineries they have left this Country naked and vulnerable. We can’t take the economic advantage our oil, never mind no market. We can’t even turn OUR oil into useful products for OUR OWN use. Talk about patsies?  About 5 years ago Congress gave the cartel in excess of $ 7 billion to aid in building new refineries to cut the price, ho ho. The oilies took the jack, pocketed it and kept on doing what they are best at, screwing North American drivers with the help of politicians [ like Harper / McGuinty ] on the take. And the $ media is ever there to share in the spoils. Being paid to distribute false and misleading copy. Did you know that the Globe and Oil will orchestrate a campaign of writing corporate friendly NEWS for $ 250,000 a pop. So the news Phil Crawley publishes goes through the board room first. In the US now there are many oil independents who are fracking tight oil. This is real oil, not crude bitumen. The oil cartel is buying real oil on the cheap as well as some DilBit for peanuts from Alberta. The cartel can control the supply of gasoline and charge what they want. This is why they are hoarding crude oil. They can store a ton of it, because it is cheap to store in Cushing, Oaklahoma, out in the boonies. Buy low by rigging the game, then sell high. The stuff of scoundrels. In fact an analyst is Chicago was bragging the other day about cartel refinery profits which border on usuary. But if you have a monopoly like the cartel why not flaunt it. The oilies think they are untouchable. And they are if Canadians continue to act like rag dolls under Herr Harper’s directives. But if we can muster a little back bone and show a little spunk we can beat these snakes at their own game. With Morgan Kinder, Gateway and Keystone projects in limbo there is a cry to go east, a chorus that is gaining in strength each day. The siren’s song is appealing. Remember, in the West, among companies it is now every man for himself in the oil / nat. gas business. Each company is trying to find a way to survive at someone else’s expense. This stampede towards the exits is typical of the Yankee boom / bust cycles. Screw the governments, the people,  competitors and the environment. None of these oil / pipe line people can be believed. Enbridge was headed by Pat Daniel, now Al Monaco has taken his place CEO. They are both liars. The TransNotCanada CEO is Russ Girling, another liar. Enbridge wants to bring Alberta crude bitumen down to Sarnia and ship it to Quebec and then on to the US Atlantic coast. Cities like Toronto and Montreal are right to be concerned about sand holing a pipe or 3. Enbridge owns a 40 year old pipeline [ No 9 ] here which connects to the US pipe system in the midwest. Originally oil came out of Alberta, crossed into the US, through Chicago, made its’ way to Sarnia, then into Ontario and on the Montreal [  That's when I had to buy expensive gasoline, forced by the Feds to support Alberta ].  As gasoline use went up, more and more Alberta oil was consumed in the mid west and the supply of gasoline to Eastern Canada began coming from offshore. The US oil cartel DECIDED that Easten Canada should be served with imported oil from God knows where. But the price was stable.  But lately we here have been subjected to volatile world oil prices even though as a Country we have enough oil to satisfy our own needs. The cartel has been closing refineries in Canada. In my view this is to take away the opportunity for this Country to become self sufficient, we have become a forever punching bag. Now fracking in the USA has changed the game for oil and nat. gas. There is an excess of natural gas stateside due to fracking and this excess has killed the price. Further drilling is no longer profitable. The Yanks don’t want nat. gas from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and particularly Alberta. Premier Redford’s Province used to get 60% of its’ royalties from nat. gas, now that amount has dropped to 10%. The Wild Oil Party says this is Redford’s fault. The oil story is the same. Fracking has caused a glut of oil in the midwest, nobody is buying it. Alberta’s oil and crude bitumen is not really needed so Alberta’s royalty take is going down even faster. According to Danielle Smith, this too is Alison’s fault. All of the pipe lines in the 3 Western Provinces now go in the wrong direction, mainly to Cushing, Oklahoma. Oil stored there amounted to 15 mil barrels in 2008.  Jan. 2013 that number has gone up to 52 mil barrels and it will be 60 mil barrels by the end of  2013. Various countries around the world have cut back oil production, there is just too much of the stuff around no matter what Harper and Oliver say. Oil is dirt cheap but gasoline is through the roof. This because the oil cartel controls the refineries. The glut of oil grows and Alberta’s prospects get darker and darker. In term of oil quality the tar sands crude bitumen is way down the list. Lighter oil now in abundance. It can be refined more cheaply and more cleanly. So Enbridge is selling the reversal of No – 9 as a proposal that will get Alberta crude bitument to market. They say, crude bit would be mixed with lighter fluid and loaded in the tar sands by Enbridge. It would be transported across the border, passing south of Chicago to Sarnia [ refineries ]. Aboard, some crude bit would cross Ontario to Montreal [ refineries ], on down to the Atlanic in the US.  Enbridge is seeking Fed. Government approval to reverse No – 9 to accomplish this noble deed. My take. Being so patriotic will win Enbridge points among the politicians, plus a little palm greasing.  This may well get N0 – 9 reversed. Say crude bitumen does get loaded in Alberta and it goes all the way to the Atlantic. It will be transported free of tax because it is not oil. Therefore Enbridge cheats Canadians / Americans out of taxes. The tar slurry mixed with lighter fluid will be lethal [ a spill could cause environmental damage to the ground and water ] [ the interior gas is poisonous ] [ and tar burns like crazy ]. But there are other posibilities. Once the shipping of crude bitumen from Alberta  is established Enbridge could cut back and add in some of that illegal US light oil from the glut without reporting its’ export to the US Government. Pipe line companies don’t have to report what they a shipping. The US Government is turning a blind eye to the transportation of crude bitumen through a refined oil pipe line system. The public will learn about this when there is a big spill and loss of life. By then the politicians will have plenty money squirrelled away to enjoy in their gated communities. Being approved under the table as a crude bitumen line no taxes will be paid on the shipments of light oil. Canadian refineries would be buying a combination of oil grades and avoid the extra cost of processing the crude bitumen. Oil firms can’t export oil from the US proper. It is against the law. This No – 9 scheme get around this law is ingenious. So how much crude bitumen would actually be shipped out of Alberta is questionable. I myself prefer not to be a feather floating around on a pond at the whim of the wind. So Enbridge’s proposal on No – 9, which is being promoted by Joe Oliver is a whole lot of take and little if any give. In terms of TransNotCanada, they are up to bringing crude bit down east just like Enbridge. T C has the old natural gas pipe line that sparked the Great Pipe Line debate and saw Diefenbaker come to power in 1956. The volume of nat. gas shipped on the Mainline to the east from Alberta has been dropping of late and the pipe is now less than 50% full. The is a reason and it is not Alberta friendly. TransNotCanada wanted to increase the transportion costs of Nat. gas to its’ remaining customer to maintain their profit margin. Nice work if you can get it. Russ Girling, CEO of T C,  backed by a $ media blackout hasn’t told us why business is down. T C is bring in cheap fracked nat. gas from Michigan into Ontario, selling it at Alberta prices and cutting the throats of Premier Redford and that Province’s natural gas companies. And this ploy is cutting the throats of Ontarians who are paying big money for cheap American nat. gas.  Now Girling has come up with a new scheme. Russ like Enbridge wants to turn his nat. gas Mainline into an oil line and ship crude bitument from Alberta to the east. Gee whiz, another saviour rides to Canada’s rescue. These pipeliners are being so good to us. I just could not get my head around this TransNotCanada proposal. Why create a system to ship crude bit out of Alberta when the Keystone XL is awaiting approval, it makes no sense. I kept digging and found the answer. The Mainline has a spur that goes south of the border at Winnipeg. Like the skunk said when the wind changed, it all comes back to me now. Girling is going to play the same game as Al Monaco at Enbridge. Make a big deal out of shipping Alberta crude bit to the east. Pump in light oil from the glut south of the border and ship it east. There will be no taxes and T C will be able to illegally export American oil out of the Country without Washington being any the wiser. In terms of natural gas Ontario and Quebec are paying Alberta prices for cheap fracked nat. gas out of Michigan and Pennsylvania. So Ontario is being ripped off with high gasoline prices when oil is dirt cheap. The reason is both McGuinty and Hudak have dealings with TransNot Canada. They are both profiting from keeping us in servitude. We are paying high prices for nat. gas because the Ontario Energy Board is full of McGuinty appointees and is asleep at the switch or on the take too. I am wondering how much the Board gets paid by Trans Not Canada to remain  asleep? It is time that the Legislature created a Standing Committee on oil, gasoline and natural gas pricing and security of supply. Canada has no reserves of either oil / nat. gas anywhere. With the volitile world energy situation any interruption could bring Ontario / Canada to its’ knees. Why do we need governments? We can screw things up like this all on our own and do it much cheaper.  Another consideration is the Chinese hacking into Canadian computer systems, pipe lines, electrical systems, water systems and transit. Energy is under Provincial jurisdiction. Harper is not minding the store. If we don’t begin to control our own future when do we do that? After the house gets cold, the service stations are closed, the taps run dry and the subways aren’t operating?  These are the kinds of things that the Legislature should be dealing with. The oilies are closing service stations in rural Ontario because they can’t make enough money. Who needs them. We elect MPPs to do this kind of job, not just sit back mum and take bribes. We don’t need an election in Ontario. The gas plant scandal can be passed off to a committee of regular citizens to study. It will not cost $ 30 million as Kathleen Wynne has said. She is toying with us as McGuinty did. Progress toward finding answers to devious Dalt’s scandal will allow the MPPs to get on with more serious business like Gridlock, Public Transit and high priced energy. Strangely, the voters at this time have increased powers, not seen in 15 years. You yourself can determine whether the major issues get tackled or fwe just continue to playing political games like Hudak is proposing. As I keep saying I am a PC going back to 1960. I abandon Mike Harris during his second mandate. He was such a dishonest man. Harris is now in hiding most of the time due to the fact that he is reviled by most Ontarians. And Hudak is proposing to bring back all of Mike discredited programs. Poor Tim has gone loonie.  McGuinty is going to be in the same boat as Harris, reviled. And as we see Enbridge and TransNotCanada are once again up to their old tricks. Supported by the $ media. Especially the Globe and Oil. It is interesting seeing the outcome of a new run-of-the-river hydro system being installed in BC. This is the same system used at Niagara Falls which was built on both sides of the border more than 100 years ago. The turbines are still humming away producing KW at a cost of 1.5 cents per. Ontarians now pay 20 cents per. You know we are so stupid. Nobody pays $ 200 for $ 15 hotdogs. Ontario has about 1000 run-of-the-river sites [ installed or potential ]. But we build expensive natural gas plants in the wrong places and enrich Enbridge and TransNotCanada. I get approval BC Hydro had to agree to about 30 environmental requirements. A couple involve a river monitoring system 24/7 and the constant output of the plant. Such information must be on a web site for the people of BC to see. Compare this thorough scrutiny to that which the tar sands is subjected. With the oilies it is hands off and let her rip. [ crude bitumen in not legally oil no matter what the US oil cartel and Joe Oliver say ].

*********************************************************************************************************

HYBRIDS / HYDROGEN VEHICLES /ELECTRIC CARS   —  I  have been on this file for at least 6 years in a serious way. I trained as a aeroplane mechanic, branched out into trucks /cars, tractors [ gas / diesel ] and golf carts [ some electric ]. I became convinced some years ago that hydrogen is the fuel of the future. I went way beyond reading newspapers and magazines. I turned to the library and the inter-library-loan-service. I had access to every book in Canada [ almost ].  Hydrogen became big news back then, remember Ballard Fuel Cells? There was a lot of hype to sell stock in hydrogen startups. There were some good stories and write ups, some foreign automoble companies responded with test vehicles. The US oil cartel and the Big Three took notice. Then I became aware of  articles with a certain sameness written by auto writers in the Wheels Sections of the papers. Every time there was a hydrogen news splash separate negative pieces would appear. Not one of them was really critical of hydrogen but each and every one of these articles created doubts and spread misinformation. Each piece began by creating a big buildup for hydrogen and all it could do then the punching of holes would begin in the last two paragraphs. I have been writing for publications for years and have seen this approach to journalism before. Write as if you are going in one direction while you are actually going 180 degrees opposite It is thoroughly  dishonest. Martin Regg Cohn of the Star is at present a practitioner of this kind of double cross. Martin came to the Paper before the last Provincial election to fudge for Dalt McGuinty. His year and a half wasn’t very successful though. Devious D. has quit and is now in hiding while the process that will put him in jail grinds on. I had / have no use for McGuinty but did read many of Cohn’s Liberal booster columns just to sample his ability to say one thing and mean the other. In terms of the attack on hydrogen vehicles, it was relentless and must have cost the Big Three / Big Oil a fortune. It worked, people were fooled again. This campaign had its’ intended effect and interest in hydrogen cars has subsided. One way I could tell that an auto writer was getting an oilie cheque was the mention of the Hindenberg and how the  hydrogen blew up. Hydrogen in a car would be just as dangerous they would say. But repeat this over and over in all the papers at the same time had the desired affect as Goebbels said. Tell a lie often enough and the lie becomes the truth. Harper finds this approach very successful.  Trudeau’s NEP is another lie which has been hammered home hundreds of time by the oil cartel journoshills. A lot of people believe that one too. Hydrogen cars were pounded into the ground then the assault on climate change took over. Thousand of forked tongue writer were employed by the cartel to be deniers, that campaign continues to this day. Peter Foster [ who doesn't know what he is talking about ], Lawrence Solomon and Lorrie Goldstein are good examples of people who are paid to deny Global Warming. The cartel has spent ten of millions knocking the climate crisis. All of the large papers in Canada now are Harper / oil cartel boosters, those attack / oilie ads are very lucrative. They are habit forming and the $ media can’t live without such tainted money. The climate change bashing has gone on so long, little wonder some of the population are having doubts. There is no counter comment, the $ media won’t broadcast / print it.  This is the very result the cartel wanted. They pay to plant seeds of doubt in people’s minds. The deniers are now claiming victory. Since nothing on Global Warming is in the news these days other than what the deniers are saying the cartel is claiming the threat has come to an end. Since the $ media now serves Herr Harper and the oil cartel exclusively it is little wonder that the climate isn’t in the news. Daaaaaaaaaaaaaa. But the $ media, particularly the press is not popular. Only 17% of viewers / readers believe what they see / hear. On the surface the concern about Global Warming has been doused according to the press, of the press, by the press, for the press. But the truth is that among the citizenry concern over the climate crisis is growing and the fear is deeply imbedded in the young. A new crop of young believers moves into the ranks each year. It is a battle Peter Foster, Paul Godfrey and the National American Post can’t win. Now a new target has appeared in the auto sections, the electric car. Many articles are being written by forked tongue reporters. The same  approach is being taken as with hydrogen itself, hyrogen vehicles and climate change. Write a glowing report and then at the end punch the boat full of holes. In terms of these pieces I always read the last paragraph first. All the negatives are piled up at the end. With hydrogen cars the scare phrase was the, ” Hindenberg “. With electric cars it is, ” range anxiety “. The auto writers are now forcasting the death of the electric car, something the oilies would love to see. In the last few weeks an attack on hybrids has started by David Booth of the Post and Peter Gorrie of the Star and the like. Both work for GM, the VOLT is mentioned by them way too often, it is a lousy hybrid [ the VOLT IS NOT AN ELECTRIC CAR / IT IS JUST GM TELLING MORE LIES ].  The knock on hybrids is that the mileage claims are falsified. Of course if a hybrid is driven on # 401 all the time the electrical drive system will not be engaged. I have most of the articles written by Dave and Peter over the years and they are full of lies. What else in new in papers these days? Lies of course, who would have thunk it?  Here is my pitch. With the constant attacks on hydrogen, hydrogen vehicles, climate change, electric cars and hybrids the US oil cartel hopes to hold back the hands of time. There is much grumbling by the politicians, movers and takers that there is little if any innovation in North America. That is absolutely true because they themselves spend so much money killing off new ideas. The rich and powerful are deathly afraid of change.  Allowing new ideas to flourish could sweep them away in an instant and it should. It is a terrible thing to look upon a withered United States brought low by the small Cult of Nietzsche [ Republican Sociopaths ]. Canada is now being dragged down by a member of that Cult, Lyin Steve. Whether in New York, LA or Toronto the story is the same. The $ media is being paid to maintain the status quo. Politicians like Harper, McGuinty and Hudak have been bought off. But in this bleak and dark time I see opportunity. Governments across North America have and are responding to the wealthiest private concerns by allowing them first dibs on the people’s holdings. The politicians are taking money in return for delivering communities over into slavery. The tools to combat Global Warming will finally be assembled but not here in North America. Hydrogen will come to the fore, but not here. Hydrogen vehicles will be perfected but not here. Same goes for electric cars and hybrid but not in North America. Here is the light at the end of the tunnel. Ontario has critical mass [ 13,000,000 population / 2012  ]. The population of Denmark is only 5,5000,000 and yet that Country has developed a huge wind turbine business and other technical breakthroughs. These activities are supported by the Danish Government. Governments can go where private enterprise will not. Governments can prime the pumps. We can do the same. Washington funded the super highway system, the development of the 1st US jet liner [ Boeing 707 ].  The US military / space program funded the silicon chip. The US gov. funded the computer, the internet and the GPS system. And the list goes on. I am a PC, businessman and free enterpriser. In some areas of commerce it takes government money and muscle to do the pioneering work because private enterprise won’t. Did you know that Vancouver’s elevated, electric transit system [ Sky Train ] was Bill Davis’ doing. The first application of this Queen’s Park initiative was the Scarborough RT line going from the end of the Bloor subway line to the Scarborough Town Centre. This was a daring technolgy which the TTC thoroughly mishandled. The Province should have taken over the project and installed the system. Davis’ Intermediate Capacity Transit System [ ICTS ] had legs  and the proof lies resides in Vancouver.  Bombardier finally ended up with this technology and sells trains all over the world.  And Company builts trains all over the world, only not here. David Peterson, a man without an ounce of vision sold off  ICTS at a fire sale price. The PC Government [ Frost, Robarts and Davis ] was in place for 42 years. Why you might ask? The PCs [ I was there ] had a strong grassroots riding association system. And Queen’s Park was deeply involved in promoting new ideas and innovation. Technological breakthroughs were a common occurance. The PCs were always priming the pump. It wasn’t all luck that Ontario was the  economic engine of Canada. This activity came about under the wing of the Industry & Trade Ministry at Queen’s Park. There were a lot of ideas in the pipe when Frank Miller was defeated. David Peterson became Preem and abolished the whole Ministry. Many businesses involved with  Davis programs were forced into bankruptcy. Peterson feared a steady stream of  Tory business successes would keep popping up to embarass him so he resorted to a scorched earth policy. It would be impossible to estimate the cost to Ontarians of this vindictive action by Peterson, pure nasty politics. This and other failings saw Peterson turfed out in 3 years. Thank God for small mercies. I have noticed in the last few weeks a resurgence of interest in hydrogen. Nobody mentions hyrogen in North America. The oilie journoshills succeeded in hammering hydrogen into the ground and scaring the shit out of 375 million people in North America. It show the power of the evil $ media. No, the interest in hydrogen is blossoming in Europe. Hydrogen is actually safer than gasoline. If hydrogen escapes it instantly goes skyward. When gas leaks it pools, turns to a vapour and if ignited will form a fireball which could be the size of a house. Many people using gas to start a bonfire have not survived to try it again. Well it would seem that the US oil cartel is up to its’ usual tricks. Interest in hydrogen must be stamped out immediately and the cartel is on the march with pocketbook in hand. A documentary about the Hindenburg has been made by a university group in England which claims to have discovered the cause. The doc will appear on Britain’s TV Channel 4 and boy are they being made fools of. It is full of nonsense and misinformation. It connects the Hindenburg to hydrogen once again. I have every clipping of hydrogen articles that appeared in the local papers for at least the last 6 years. Other than industrial / academic  pieces each one contains a warning about the Hindenburg. Sometimes the same basic copy would appear in various papers in the same week. Obviously on orders from the US oil cartel. The whole idea is to scare the public off hydrogen as an alternative fuel. The cartel’s anti  hydrogen campaign has worked in North America and now the oilies want to scare Europeans. The cause of the Hindenburg crash was solve a number of years ago. The only problem was that the $ media was making too much oil  money scaring the beejeebers out of people to tell the truth. I wonder how much the English college group got from the oilies to produce this propaganda documentary?  It really a scandal that advances in society which will create a more prosperous, more affordable, cleaner, more convenient world can be snuffed out by the US oil cartel money. And it is sad to see so many people prostitute themselves if furthering the goals of the evil oil cartel. Oh yes, the Hindenburg. It was covered with fabric afixed to 20 ft square frames. The fabric was doped using nitrocellulose lacquer containing aluminum powder. This powder is a light blanket and reflects the sunlight. It stops the fabric from rotting. Nitrocellulose is related to gun powder. The dope is explosive and aeroplanes covered with fabric [ cotton / linen ] used to be called flying coffins during WW 1. Any kind of spark could set them off. If you fly airlines these days you are familiar with the short lengths of cord that trail from the trailing edges of the wings and tailplanes. These cord dissipate static electricity. The type of shock you get walking across a rug and touching a light switch. All aircraft have their parts bonded [ connected by wires or metal straps ]. Then any static electricity can be dumped via the trailing cords. This especially during thunderstorms. On the Hindenburg the large fabric panels were not bonded together. Lightning struck the upper tail and one of the fabric panels caught fire. It was all downhill from there. Nitrocellulose burns like crazy. Aluminum powder burns like crazy. Together they burn even crazier. Once the fire started is quickly travelled across the skin. Newsreel  pictures show one panel after another catching fire. Once the outside cover burned through the hydrogen gas bags went up too. Hitler claimed the ship was sabotaged by a bomb. And the US was not able to carry out a complete investigation. When hydrogen vehicles began to be touted the US oil cartel around 2000 they came up with a slick campaign, ” remember the Hindenburg ” . We got a steady diet of this myth, over and over and over again. Hydrogen vehicles went into the dumpster. Next climate change got dumped. Electric cars are in the process of being dumped by the cartel and now there is an attack on hybrids. Any automobile that cuts into the sale of gasoline is on the cartel hit list and its’ army of 5th rate journalists.  And the $ media is never far behind, eagerly awaiting the arrival of an oilie cheque. Oh yes, Canada’s so called Trudeau NEP got the same treatment. Tens of millions of dollars given to ther petro press to tell lies. Right now Premier Redford is under attack by the US oil cartel. This has been happening almost every day since she was elected by democratic means. Two days ago Redford was blamed for the high price of gasoline. The cartel is running of of things to hang on the Preem. There is one happening the cartel has yet to use. Premier Redford could be blamed for the black plague. Keep an eye for it. American campaigns to smear others and rewrite history goes back to the Revolutionary War. The Boston Massacre, the Alamo and Custer’s Last stand are myths which bear little resemblence to the actual facts. George Bush Jr. said it all. ” We are an empire now and we can create our own reality “. And the Yanks do just that. That is why the Americans are in such trouble. Living in La La Land doesn’t equip one to maneuver through real life. Canadians should be made aware that Lyin Steve is escorting us to La La Land too.

We can reclaim the Davis approach by having the Government provide the foundation for all of these new technologies which are nowhere present in North America. Queen’s Park could install the next generation of elevated, electric rapid transit in Toronto. This system could eventually replace the GO rail cars. The new Ontario Hydro [  a rejoining of the various elements of the old Ontario Hydro that were pulled apart by Mike harris for quick sale ]. Hydro One would become the host of all the bits. The new Ontario Hydro would do pioneering work with the hydrogen infrastructure. The  nOH would take over the management of oil, gasoline, diesel and natural gas in Ontario. Expropriations might be neccesary. GM built a new research centre east of Oshawa with the help of Ontario taxpayers. GM never fulfilled its’ promise to design a hydrogen car. Just another of this Corporation’s lies and broken promises. I met with officials of the CAW about 4 years ago when the truck plant was closed. I urged the Union to push for the manufacture of hydrogen cars / pickups in the abandon plant and make use of the research centre. I got no meaningful response. If  Ontario provides the environment for hydrogen vehicles and electric cars / hybrids. I think we could attract a Company like Nissan to build such vehicles in Oshawa and but it would be important to protect the Company against constant attack from the US oil cartel and the $ media. If we got involved with such a venture all information and news about car design and manufacturing would be on the net and broadcast through TVO after a management shakeup, ousting all of the McGuinty poodles from Channel 2. Ontario would be the portal through which all the best technologies of the world could be studied and adapted for use here. And exported to all of North America.  Canada has a population of 34 million and the USA 340 million. We would have a whole slew of advanced technologies and systems tailor made for North America. This is what the Legislature should be zeroing in on. Not Hudak’s ravings. Ontario could once again become the economic engine of the Country. All it will take is a shoulder to the wheel and some Queen’s Park pump priming. We did it before, we can do it again. It is impossible to estimate what could be accomplished if Ontarians were inspired.

*********************************************************************************************************

FINIS   —   I fear that the Ont. House will now be turned into a zoo over past Liberal indisgressions. But this should not be allowed to deflect the MPPs from their tasks at hand. There is a lot of work to do and the quicker it is gotten to the better. The Ornge / Mazza affair should be in the hands of the police. The gas plant fiasco should be placed in the hands of a citizen’s committee to sort through. Having MPPs looking into financial skullduggery which involves both the Liberal and PC Party machines taking money under the table will not take us to a place of truth. Premier Wynne understandably doesn’t want a Judge and expensive lawyers [ $ 400 an hour ] in suits delving into the gas plant affair. Such an inquiry would be totally independent [ beyond Liberal control ], cost a bundle and hang the Liberals out to dry if the truth is revealed. Such an inquiry would take forever and in the end many citizens would have no confidence in the outcome. The so called elites investigating the so called elites. But if a citizen’s committee was struck it could do quick work, at an affordable price and the results would be acceptable  to most. Plus these proceedings under citizen control would take the affair out of the Legislature and allow the important business of the people to be addressed. All it will take to advance on this basis is 55 MPPs [ any stripe ] who are prepared to put the public interests above partisan politics. I can see some Liberals and PC MPPs joining with the NDP to set up a citizen’s inquiry into the gas plants. This would NOT trigger an election. There is almost 3 years left on this minority’s mandate. Ontarians have told the 3 parties, work together. Polls show if an election was held to-day, it would be a 3 way split. What is the point? Some in the legislature are no listening to that message, especially Hudak. I have listed in the Report some of my concerns and included fixes. I am sure there are others whose thoughts have been ignored also. I think it would be helpful to test this new minority approach of working together by seizing on one outstanding matter. The first chance to try its’ wings, so to speak.  This would give MPPs the opportunity to work together in an environment where partisan politics has no place. I would suggest Gridlock in Toronto as the target for tonight. Kathleen Wynne has taken ownership of Gridlock and public transport in Toronto. I think that is a great thing. Queen’s Park owes the City one. Mike Harris arranged the new Toronto in such a way as to give it a dysfunctional Council. It doesn’t have the tools to do the Gridlock / transit job. There has always been the fear at Queen’s Park that the City would become rich and powerful.  And  become the tail that wags the Ontario dog.  There have been efforts over the years  for the Legislature  to ensure that Toronto remains a poor cousin, this forever.  Harris also downloaded services onto the City along with other municipalities in order to cover the cost of  HIS HIDDEN $ 3.5 billion deficit. By the Legislature actually solving Gridlock on behalf of the GTA its’ stature would be immeasurably improved. Since Gridlock has been caused in the main by City Council’s meddling and social engineering. This by putting thousand of barriers in the way of traffic, it seems to me we can reduce Gridlock by at least 25%   just removing impediments on the cheap. How much will it cost to take traffic lights down, maybe 40 lag screws and then Mar off the exposed wiring. Take down hundreds of stop signs and remove speed bumps. We could have a garage sale online and sell signs to the public in North America to commemerate the day the traffic started to roll again in the Big T O.

That is where the MPPs can move into the spotlight in the present circumstances. I can just imagine their grandkid’s reaction to having someone in the family who made life better for coming generations rather than making things worse and more expensive. I have put in this report an outline of my plan to eliminate 25% of Toronto’s gridlock on the cheap. This report has been years in the making. I was riding the streets of this City 70 years ago on my 2nd hand bike with no fenders. For almost 30 years I ran an appliance service business here. We covered the whole City repairing washers and dryers. I would be happy to meet with any MPP or a group of MPPs, free of charge, without obligation and on a confidential basis [ MPs only ]  [ www.kenspratleyhie@yahoo.ca ]. I feel the time for photo ops as being after the job gets done to the satisfaction of people in the GTA. I am not prepared to make myself available to the $ private mainstream media. They spin and distort everything they lay hands on. The Globe and Oil particularly prints corporate friendly news. It only costs $ 250,000 a pop. Why?  Because it is company propaganda all tarted up to look like by the journoshills at the Globe. With billions at stake it is dirt cheap for Russ Girling of  TransNotCanada to pay Phil Crawley 250 thou to fool YOU. I have nothing but contempt for all those so involved. For years I have been writing letters to the papers particularly, on a variety of matters without there ever being any meaningful response. Those issues in which I am interested have been closed debates by and for the benefit of the elites. However the internet has shifted the balance in our OUR favour. It has tipped the info  pyramid upside down. Instead of information coming from on high it is now bubbling upward from the masses. We, the LITTLE PEOPLE [ as Lady Black refers to us ] can now bypass the $ media, find out the truth and live more meaningful / prosperous lives. and have a few bucks to spare. The $ media is paid to keep us confined in la La Land. While we are La Laing the rich get richer and the future of our children becomes dicier. I am now using the net as a means of outlining the war on Gridlock. This does not speak to reform. Rather it shouts revolution. I specifically went back 5 years looking at all of the pronouncements / plans / articles about Gridlock. There has NEVER been a concrete plan to eliminate stalled traffic, not one. It has been nothing but platitudes from the talking heads as they keep picking up their taxpayer paid cheques. What we hear from the elites without any plans is the need for more taxes and tolls. Bullshit. How long can people engage in just apple polishing? With never a solution. FOREVER it would seem. Gridlock and public transit are being left to fester. It is being used by the elites to extract more money from your wallet, it is a  sort of blackmail. Five years of chit chat is a long enough wait. Let’s end the free ride. Let’s tackle Gridlock for starters. The way is clear. For the first time in history there exists a plan to curtail Gridlock. It is contained herein, I have it. Our politicians, movers and takers and $ media are having a tough time embracing the internet. The Americans are way ahead in this regard. Many important  stories are now being broken on the net in the US and the papers are trying to catch up. Many truths including details are found on the net. The press here operates as if  we are still in 1970. News and information that is dead wrong or false gets published in the press every day here with no concern about their lies. Yet a click of the mouse can reveal the extent of the misleading copy in print. Is the Canadian $ media just in denial or are they just plain stupid? President Obama has won 2 elections, he used the net and social media. The Republicans just stood around with their bare faces hanging out. The Repubs / right apparently spent $ 1.5 billion on newspaper / TV ads and lost the last vote. 4 years ago, the same story.  But the right wing never admits mistakes and therefore never corrects such mistakes. The Obama win was acomplished outside the $ media. The recent Prorogation scandal was on fire, all on the net. The papers ignored it. Democracy was unimportant to the Canadian media moguls.  Now the Legislature is back and democracy has been restored let’s use its’ clout. Is the $ media paying any attention to the pressing matters that need to be addressed? Actually no. It is all coverage that one might see after a Habs / Leafs game. Our democracy is looked upon as a sort of sport and of little consequence. It is too late when the gates of the concentration camp clang behind you. In the past a report like I have prepared herein would have been thrown in the garbage by the papers in this Country. In Nazi Germany I would have felt the noose. Now the fixes above will go out to almost 50,000 viewers who now follow the Geeman.  Will Torontonians pay higher taxes and agree to tolls as the papers forecast. Or will the voter replace the representatives who only offer expensive solutions to reward their friends and in the end produce zero results?  I suggest that the Legislature strike a Standing Committee on Toronto Gridlock, which will only require the support of 55 MPPs [ any stripe ]. The day after that we can begin the work to reduce Gridlock in the City. On that very day Toronto can bank $ 328 million. That is JUST THE COST OF A STUDY OF CITY TRAFFIC that was to be done by consultants, delivery in 2 years. The my plan is now formulated, it’s waiting to be put into action. I think we can reach the 25% reduction for less than $ 1.5 million. If that  goal is met those in the Legislature  and the Council Chambers would be declared heroes of the realm.

I want to give the politicians who still live in the 1970s a fighting chance. They will be included in  my regular mailing via Canada Post of this report. I am going to include the $ media in my mailing although my proposals will probably be pitched in the garbage, as usual. The movers and takers can’t make any graft from my suggestions. I have concluded that my proposals are beyond the intelligence of the press whose only desire is corporate dollars. Once Torontonian come to realize that Gridlock is a curse placed on them by 30 years of car hating Councils we can begin to remove that curse. A letter follows this post which explains the summary.

THE NOBODIES IN THE NEWS TO-DAY / DEVIOUS DALT McGUINTY / PETER FOSTER / MIKE STROBEL / STEVE PAIKIN / DON DRUMMOND / NIELS VELDHUIS / CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER / GWYN MORGAN / BJORN LOMBORG / LAWRENCE MARTIN / HOLMAN W. JENKINS JR. / DR. SANKARA PAPAVINASAM / MARTIN REGG COHN / TIM HUDAK 20/01/13

DEVIOUS DALT    —   McGuinty appeared out of hiding and made  speech the other afternoon about the proposed teachers day of protest. The ex Preem said about the strike / protest that the teachers can’t have it both ways. But wait a minute, apparently Dalt can. One minute Premier and the next moment NOT PREMIER.  McGuinty stood at a news conference and declare the job action was illegal. Dalt’s being at the news conference was illegal. There is no democratic government at the moment in Ontario. The King has been sent to the Tower by the court jester.  The PC / NDP – MPPs elected by the people are sovereign. We gave them the power to rule and they now hold the majority of seats in the Assembly. But they are sitting at home, sent there by the Liberal party machine with David Onley’s permission. And to think the Ontario labour Relations Board sat there and listen to the opinions of this imposter. Societies are destroyed when such evil appears and good  men / women remain silent and sit on their hands. I keep talking about the cattle cars being next. I am not being funny. The OPP now runs its’ own show and applies the law as it sees fit. Devious Dalt has handed the Provincial Police a free pass to enforce the law in some communities and not in others. If you protest and you are not of the right background and the OPP picks you up, to whom do you complain?  The peoples representatives  are on a forced vacation. Ontario has followed California. Democracy has been taken away there by the Republicans and the $ media. And we like they live in a very large community that is now ungovernable and bankrupt. Little wonder that McGuinty was going to be put in jail by the PCs / NDP. Contribution to Ontario [ CtoOnt. ]   —   Zero out of 4 Stars

PETER FOSTER   —   Pete is all over the American National Oil Post now and his good friend Terry Corcoron is seldom seen. Paul Godfrey can’t really be paying for Pete’s output of outrageous claptrap, maybe Foster is just independently wealthy and can indulge himself in right wing retoric and flights of fancy? Foster knows a few things [ very few ] in general, follows the oilie line religiously and makes all the rest up to fill in the blank spots. The reason those who write on the right get away with this nonsense is that there is no critical comment allowed. Those on the other side of the debate have been shut out entirely. Let’s face up to the fact that GODFREY CAN’T MAKE MONEY TELLING THE TRUTH.  The Can. $ media is paid big money by the US oil cartel  /CAPP etc to tell their tar sands story exclusively. And that is what you get, a 100% oilie slant. I am a PC and a 50 year businessman. As far as I can tell in backgrounding Peter as much as one can, he hides his origins but he has obviuosly never had to make payroll. Pete’s a pure phony. He is a climate denier because he is paid by the cartel to be a climate denier. Did you know that Paul Godfrey’s Post is the centre of climate denial in this Country. As if it isn’t enough to read Foster everyday doing an anti Global Warming rant Godfrey allows a never ending chorus of climate deniers from around the world all in some way connected to the oil cartel or the Heartland Institute. With all of his fellow climate deniers in the Post getting money from Big Oil can Pete be writing dribble just for the fun of it? Godfrey is such a rabid dog supporter of the US oil cartel it is for sure that Paul will inducted into the Oilie Hall of Fame. Contribution to Canada [ CtoCan. ]   —   Zero out of 4 Stars

MIKE STROBEL   —   Our Mike writes froth. Canada is beset by many difficulties and yet the Sun still gives Mike a page of print to promote Pablum. Why is that the commentators and journalists of  to-day don’t know anything. Mind, I do know the answer. The rich right who own the $ media don’t want their employees to have any brains. Strobel’s piece on Jan. 13 / 13 was about the lack of new ideas and innovation, he then proceeds to convince one and all by what he wrote that he doesn’t have a clue. It’ is elementary my dear Strobel. The entity with the largest cache of cash in North America is the US oil cartel. If ideas began to blossom there would be uncertainty and the cartel would be the first to suffer financially. They are extremely vulnerable.  So the oilies don’t want any change period. The cartel holds an oil monopoly you know, so it is free to charge whatever it please. The politicians have been paid off and the $ media is in their hire. Mike’s own Sun is paid to join in the killing of any innovations that threaten the US oil cartel. I have said it before, Canada is a place where ideas are born to die. Any good idea that pops its’ head above the rim of the trench gets picked off.  Stroble’s article was a totally stupid one and I hope he doesn’t have children. His ignorance is helping steal away their futures. CtoCan.   —   1/2 a Star

STEVE PAIKIN   —   Steve is on TVO suggesting that on the agenda, ” No issue is too complex “, to tackle. It is a crock. He / they won’t deal with substantive issues. They just want your money without delivering the goods.  Back about 5 years ago I tried to communicate with Steve on the nuclear question. He did a number of shows on the nukes and his guests spouted one lie after another. I wrote a few letters and some included technical details outlining the fact that Ontarians were being misled, as was he. I did get a letter that said, ” thanks for writing, we’ll be in touch “. But NO IN TOUCHING TOOK PLACE. In the ensuing few years the Province has gone bankrupt due to the abuses of nuclear and Steve joins the many who were more interested in a pay cheque than the welfare of the people. I find that strange for a TV network owned by the citizens. Full attention was given to the slavemasters [ nukies ] and no attention was paid to the enslaved [ us ]. I am going to tell you this is not a good strategy. When a one percent / 99% situation falls apart the one percent ALWAYS LOSES. I see TVO being totally revamped when a new Government is finally recalled either by legitimate means or by revolution. Channel Two will be bent to the service of the people as it should have been all along. The citizenry needed / needs straight answers not babble from the Liberal Party machine  to facilitate its’ continual thefts from the Queen’s Park treasury. My time on the nuclear / energy files goes back at least a 30 years. I was a Pickering Councillor 1973 / 76. I actually have a clear plastic paperweight in the shape of a hockey puck with a buried medallion in it which commemorates the sod turning of the Pickering nuclear plant.  Nuke power has destroyed the Ontario economy. Paikin and others did nothing and said nothing [ particularly the Toronto Star ]. I would guess shortly  Steve and his friends will have to meet at the food bank. CtoOnt.   —    3/4 of a Star

DON DRUMMOND   —    I have been writing to our Don for years telling him he is still playing on the same old checker board. Apparently there were books written 30 or so years ago which are considered bibles by Don, Jeff Ruben and Doug Porter et al. What these books said is that all the information in the world was now in the hands of man. There would never be anything new. Now that suited the banks and the movers and takers. Nothing was going to come along to make them feel uncomfortable and cut into their wealth. Everything Don says is mired in the past. Along with the $ media Don and his fellow economists base everything they do and say on the financial foundation from yesteryear. The elites love it. Innovation will never be allowed to darken their sunny skies. The USA is frozen in time like us. North America used to lead in ideas and innovation. We have been left sitting on the platform at the station. The progress train pulled out a long time ago. The only problem is that Don, Jeff, Doug and the 4 media don’t know innovation was banned years ago. Mind you, Drummond and his pals are not paid to use their brains. They get their reward from holding back the hands of time. CtoCan.   —   10 years ago maybe – 2 Stars / 1212 – Zero Stars

NIELS VELDHUIS   —   Niels writes political right wing propaganda for the Fraser Institute [ an extention of the the Fraser Inst. in the USA / both on the payroll of the US oil cartel ]. Now our own Fraser operates as a Canadian Charity which so far has eluded Rev. Can. Now I can understand this oversight because Rev. Can. now operates as an arm of the PMO. And the CRA is mostly engaged in witch hunt audits of the First Peoples and all those terrible environmental groups. Such groups are now making it hard for Herr Harper to ram through the Enbridge Gateway project that will carry raw tar slurry / poisonous gas to the BC coast from Alberta. I have a collection of Velhuis’ articles and it is interesting that although he calls himself President of the Fraser he changes hats frequently for his pieces. I can only assume that all these other entities are also charities being operated on the Canadian Taxpayer’s nickel? Just another way for Lyin Steve to siphon off tax dollars.  But if Rev. Can. does gets a handle on the Fraser, Harper will make sure they get off .  Herr harper is into law breaking bigtime and the CRA is also beyond the law.  As per usual I look behind the names like Veldhuis who toil for Lyin Steve. I am interested in 3 things, their ages. Are they old enough to hold a pencil? Where are they from? 20 something right wingers from the US or England should not be given space in OUR PRESS. And finally, what are their qualifications for writing or commenting on Canadian affairs? In most cases such histories is not available. I just assume they are not Canadians and want to hide that fact from us. Why are we inundated with foreigners whose job it is to indoctrinate us in ways Republican? That was the sort of thing that went on in Nazi Germany. Hitler installed ringers in countries he was about to invade and they dominated the press. And he led his people to a state of ruination.  55 of Germany’s biggest cities were bombed to rubble. The Fuhrer suffered from UPC and had no insight. He should have asked, ” what if we lose? ]. In Canada our unique freedoms require of us that we be eternally vigilant.  Guard it or lose it. Right now we seem the be losing it thanks to those like Niels Veldhuis and the quasi Fraser Institute [ the real Fraser is in the USA ]. Probably Niels is not a Canadian, so why should he care? To the right mercenaries all that counts is a US oil cartel pay cheque.  CtoCan.   —   Zero Stars

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER   —   Dear Paul Godfrey, why do we have to see a never ending series of columns from Charlie? He has written the very same column for at least 20 years. Krauthammer is a hard right wingnut who sees life from that perspective. But he’s an American like David Frum, a Canadian sellout. Everything has to fit Charlies’ ideology. If it doesn’t fit the rightie doctrine then he opposes it. The Kraut would consider me [ a Progrtessive Conservative ] a socialist. I used to see this character on TV years ago and concluded that he was full of shit, had nothing to say of importance and a grandstander to boot. Spouting right wing nonsense assures one of a steady pay cheque.  H. L. Mencken did the same thing 100 years ago, he wrote copy that appealed to American wimps on the right.  Krauthammer is one of the central architects of the destruction of America, he was around all during the long fiscal slide. But being sociopaths, Charlie and his rightie friends have never admitted to their reponsibility in deep sixing the USA. Of course, people like Kraut never learn from their mistakes. And keep on repeating them. Just look at the Republicans in Conress. They are prepared to obliterate America rather than let anyoe else rule it. In Canada, we must start building a new nation. They say that good luck has a lot to do with recognizing when an opportunity comes along. Having the Americans decide they no longer need Alberta / Saskatchewan / Manitoba oil and naturasl gas is such an opportunity.  Having Godfrey waste space on Krauthammer’s dribble is unhelpful. The sooner the American owned [ illegal ]  National Post bites the dust the better. Maybe the final edition will carry news of Steven Harper being sentenced to jail and Conrad Black being deported to his homeshore.  CtoCan.    —   Zero Stars

GWYN MORGAN   — I used to see this guy on the Business Channel and took a strong dislike to him. Gwyn and his wife live in a 7.5 million dollar house on an island off the BC coast. Morgan sure like to preach right wing prattle from up on the hill.  He is certainly not one of us and seems to get his jollies spout right wing nonsense [ I mean for slow learners like Morgan and Harper, Hayek doesn't work ]. Gwyn’s sorry business career is available on the net. It shows that he has been involved with some questionable dealings. Right now Morgan is attending to a bribery scandal at SNC Lavalin [ he is Chair of the Board ], he should know all about bribery. Interestingly Phil Crawley of the Globe and Oil is impressed with Gwyn as he is with that other crook Conrad Black. Crawley gives Gwyn regular space with which to mislead Canadians. What Morgan writes is directed to the One Percent to assure them that he is still true right. And adding his voice to those who feel the need to provide guidance to the great unwashed 99%. Self proclaimed exceptional people [ the Nietzsche Cult ] like Gwyn fear that the mob can do damage to THEIR Canadian society if we are given too much rope. It is so Nietzsche, isn’t it?   CtoCan.   —   Zero Stars

BJORN LOMBORG   —  This no talent / no knowledge foreigner certainly gets a lot of press and coverage in Canada. He seems to be everywhere spreading confusion about Global Warming. Years ago I looked into Bjorn’s background and found he had absolutely no qualifications to speak out about the climate crisis. Then he wrote a book which the right wing press publicized. No doubt financed by the US oil cartel like those of Ezra LeRant and Mary Janigan. I concluded he was indeed backed by the US oil cartel mainly because of his half baked ideas [ standard oilie propaganda ]. I remember reading about an interview done by a woman reporter in Toronto on Lomborg’s book. She said he was either a liar or stupid. I can accept the liar part. Bjorn is a example of 3 rate academics who sell themselves to the oil cartel to write propaganda.  The oilies are all about spreading confusion. The management of cartel won’t come out of the shadows and fight this battle with facts. They hire people like Lomborg, Vivian Krause, Mary Janigan and Ezra Le Rant to do their dirty work for them. I doubt if any off these shills have families. Taking money to destroy the enviroment shows a certain level of selfishness that doesn’t fit parenthood. I wonder if Paul Godfrey has children. If he does he’ll have to put some thought into what he will say when they ask, ” where were you when the planet went to hell in a handbasket “? Godfrey’s reply could be, making money.  CtoCan.   —   Zero Stars

LAWRENCE MARTIN   —     Lawrence has been a journalist for some time, mostly writing books about politics. So I would expect him to know his apples. But presently I would think that Martin is ignoring the apples in his life and paying attention to getting a Fascist pay cheque. Lawrence wrote a book back in 2010 that got him in big trouble with Himself the Harper. It was reviewed in the papers and I didn’t see what Steve’s people were so upset about. But they were. Then Lawrence seem to disappear from the Harper press. In recent months Martin has reappeared and I was interested in what stance he might take. It is clear that Lawrence has made it known that he is ready to place his lips on Harper’s ass in order to get back in the club. Martin now write in praise of Caesar.  On Jan. 13 / 13 he wrote a nicey nicey piece about Lying Steve. That’s all fine and dandy, if gilding the lily scores Martin some brownie points so beit. But in one segment  Lawrence talks about Harper substantially increasing his seat count over 3 elections [ 06 / 08 / 11 ]. I’m for looking at the big picture and I must say my thinking is coloured by the claims on the right after the 2011 contest was stolen.  A huge majority, an impressive majority, an overwhelming majority, a substantial majority and so on by the right wing jounoshills. Each trying to outdo the other in praise of the Chief.  Ten seats is really a slim majority and gives no mandate to take any major measures. In 2006 Harper’s percentage was 36.27 [ 124 seats ]. In 2008 it was 37.65% [ 143 seats ]. This was against a disorganized Liberal party and the votes were split on the left. Raising his percentage by 1.5% against a comatose opposition does not impress. In 2011 the percentage was 39.62 [ 166 seats ]. So with an unlimited amount of US oil cartel money, with complete control over the $ media and a huge campaign to suppress votes Steve only managed an increase of less than 2%. Under the circumstances, not run away numbers. But to Martin this was a wow???  Hyperbole has always been one of Herr Harper’s weak spots, finishing 6th has always been turned into a gold medal by the Fascists. Champions take the measure of a performance, make adjustments and build on it. Lyin Steve has barely budged 3% in half a dozen years, most of that if not all is the result of cheating. and Lawrence Martin knows it. CtoCan.   —   Zero Stars

HOLMAN  W. JENKINS JR.   —   Is a junior writer for the Wall St. Journal whose piece was lifted from that right wing  Paperwhich is owned by Murdoch.  It was reprinted by Paul Godfrey, no doubt cheap copy. As you might guess it was anti Global Warming. Peter Foster must be steaming at someone else stealing his thunder. The Post keeps up a steady drum beat of attacks on the climate crisis using its’ own scribes as well as foreigners like Jankins.. Do we really need another layer of American second stringers adding to the chorus about climate change? As usual, I looked into Holman’s history to see where he is coming from and whether he has the qualifications to write on the subject of Global Warming. Jenkins graduated from University about 20 years ago with a degree in journalism. That’s it. He certainly has his right wing patter down pat and that is the key in to-day’s newspaper world. Make nice with the righties, act like a wimp, flash your Nietzsche Membership card around and you can get a job making peanuts writing propaganda for the one percent. America is awash in a sea of Holman Jenkin Jrs. who by dint of purpose have collectively led the USA into the fiscal quicksand. Why the Wall Street Journal would allow its’ pages to display such juvenile claptrap as that which Jenkins brews up is beyond me. But it is typical of the Sociopaths on the right, they have no insight. The Journal is now owned by Rupert Murdoch and is into cheating on copy, inflating circulation and misinforming the public so the Jenkin’s situationin the end makes some sense. But when you operate a business within a society you do not seek to pull the structure down around your own ears. That is parasitic and not a good long term goal. But this is a perfect description of the newspaper business in North America now, the industry is in rapid decline. Providing false and misleading copy and lies to bolster the right wing cause has and is turning off and turning away readers. Oh, another thing about Sociopaths [ UPC ], they never learn from their mistakes. They keep beating their heads against a brick wall in lost causes. Look at the state of the Republicans to-day, pure Sociopathic behaviours. But I doubt that Paul Godfrey even read Holman Jenkins piece. I think its’ attractions are it is right leaning wing in the extreme, real cheap and fills up blank white pages. How this kind of Wall St. Journal garbage will keep the National Oil Post alive financially is beyond me.  CtoCan.   —   Zero Stars

DR. SANKARA PAPAVINASAM, WORKS FOR JOE OLIVER AT NATURAL RESOURCES CANADA   —   If there was ever a square peg in a round hole it is Joe Oliver. He is now in hospital having heart bypass surgery. I didn’t know that anyone working for Herr Harper had a heart. Some wag opined that Joe should not have drunk for a tailing pond. In any event Sankara makes our nobody’s list because of her letter which was published in the Godfrey Oilie Post. It is just another example of misinformation published by Harper’s Fascist Government in support of the US oil cartel. Sankara, is a corrosion scientist [ whatever that mean ] and acting pipeline program manager [ now that is scary ]. It would seem he /she is new to Canada, doesn’t understand to oil business and doesn’t know what the hell is going on politically. With incompetent employees Sankara, there is little wonderthat Joe Oliver says so many stupid things. The pipe line crisis began when Enbridge, TransNotCanada, Kinder – Morgan and others started cheating by pumping raw tar slurry mixed with lighter fluid through pipes meant to carry light oil. This allowed the US oil cartel to make more money refining our tar in the USA. And that is when the building of upgraders and refineries stopped in Canada. That means a number of year back the cartel decided [ please note /they decided / not Canadians ] to take this Country out of the refining business. The fallout from this is we now have to import gasoline. The cartel decided to push US back to the stone age without our permission.  This is the American free market at work and it is bloody ridiculous that we put up with such crap?  Canada has enough oil and natural gas to be totally self sufficient. So what happens?  We send our raw tar out and get roughly an 8% royalty, then we buy back finished oil products [gas / jet fuel / diesel / oils ] at inflated prices. It is like selling apples for pennies and buying back apple cider for gold bricks. This is insane. No wonder the cartel gives Herr Harper so much money.  Nice chaps. We need to have our asses kicked all around the farmyard for being this dumb. We act like birds that have been confined to a cage all their lives. When the door is left ope they don’t know what to do.  The other advantage to the cartel is that our stolen tar is not considered oil so there is no tax paid on its’ transportation. The American people, who are paying outrageous prices for gasoline [ like us ] get no benefit from the movement of the tar through the pipe. This is the Republican’s doing. The oil cartel has every exit blocked and it is take, take, take, nothing but take. Mind there is some give back to some. The US Congress and Harper have been bought off as has the $ media. That is why Godfrey printed Sankara’s piece entitled, “Oil sands crude [ raw tar ] is fine for pipe lines “. It isn’t. These observations were based a report done for the US oil cartel by the oil cartel comparing DilBit to light oil. The report only dealt with one small question. Is DilBit more corrosive than light oil. The plain answer is maybe yes maybe no, BUT THAT IS NOT THE PROBLEM. This letter by Sankara is like discussing the features of a boat that is sinking. The number of spills has gone up because more and more tar is being piped behind our backs and government officials. This activity brings in big money for the US oil cartel and as usual it is driven by a Republican / Hayek theory. That of taking risks with other people’s money and of the threat to life and limb the innocents are unaware. This is the job of the $ media, spin, spin, spin. The cartel just can’t back up now, start telling the truth and eliminate the transportation of DilBit. Nor can they tell the Canadian people the real story about piping raw tar. Tens of millions is being given to the $ media to NOT tell you about raw tar being transported and why it is so dangerous. Raw tar contains sand [ mostly quartz ] and chemicals. To get the tar to move in the pipe it has to be thinned like you do your household paint. Lighter fluid is what is used to thin the tar and constitutes about 35% of the total mixture. This slurry is driven through the pipes by pumps installed at regular intervals [ about every 50 miles ].  The quartz scours the inside of the steel pipes continuously and is especially hard on welded joints, elbow where there is a change of direction, spill sensors, shut of valves and pumps. They all get sandpapered away. The sand causes friction so the steel pipe and other parts heat up to 150 deg F. This heat causes the lighter fluid to become gaseous and mix with the chemicals. What you then have is an explosive mixture which can asphyxiate people and animals if released and permanently damage the environment. As you can see the DilBit and poisonous / explosive gas is exactly like light oil. So says Sankara, one of  Joe Oliver’s little helpers. Now to add to the fun, Alberta has very little lighter fluid with which to thin the bitumen so it has to be brought from the USA. Now it is trucked into Canada  [ Alberta ].  But for the Gateway / Kinder – Morgan an auxiliary pipe will be installed going in the other direction  to pump lighter fluid from Vancouver back to the tar sands. Can you imagine a whole convoy of tankers filled with lighter fluid / tar slurry sitting in Vancouver harbour. You know Halifax was partially destroyed in 1917 when a Norwegian ship clipped the SS Mont-Blanc carrying wartime munitions. It was the biggest explosion ever until the atomic bomb. A coal carrier knocked the end off a dock in Roberts Bank near Vancouver a few days ago. So it is possible we could have repeat blowup 100 years later? You can bet no media outlet will repeat what I have just written. They’d be off the US oil cartel / Harper Fascist Party advertising list in a blink. So Dr. Sankara, who obviously doesn’t know any better is lying for Joe Oliver [ who lies and Paul Godfrey [ who prints lies ] published this Nat. Resources letter for his masters. The oilies who send him cheques. Andrew Coyne wrote a letter about Lance Armstrong lying. Just to flesh out this article Andrew included Brian Mulroney and Bill Clinton as serial liars. Interestingly Coyne didn’t mention Lyin Steve who has been telling big fibs for 20 years. Nor did Andy talk about Conrad Black, who has nerve up to his you-know-what. The Conman lies in Court. Last but not least, the Post prints lies on every page, including articles written by Andrew Coyne  A thought just struck me. Before they let Oliver out of the hospital they should give him a lie detector test. I know for sure Joe won’t pass it. Joe Oliver and crew.  CtoCan.   —   Zero Star

MARTIN REGG COHN   —   We have a love / hate relationship, he and I. I think he is a real good writer. However he has a special skill which I do not appreciate but something that’s all in vogue these days. Martin often writes about something but means the exact opposite. While claiming to clear up issues Cohn just creates more confusion. While appearing to favour something he is actually against. This is done via a piece that promotes something but in the last couple of paragraphs all the negatives are trotted out. In his Star piece on the L. G., the disgraced L. G. David Onley, Cohn acted like a PR person. On the level of Oprah acting as a filter for Lance Armstrong. Such an opportunity allowed David to avoid being asked the difficult questions. Onley it would seem was in service to the Liberal Party machine and not the people of this Province. So how does Cohn justify such a piece in the Paper when the attacks on Onley are all coming from the net. The $ media hasn’t touched Prorogation. Too many advertising dollars come from devious Dalt and the Liberal Party machine. Why bite the hand that feeds you money. Onley has made no defense on the net that I know of. The Toronto Star provided a stress free environment in which Onley faced creampuff questioning but there was never a mention about the loss of democracy in the Province. The elected representatives are sitting in the penalty box, sent there by a small group of unelected Liberal insiders. What gives here?  John Honderich needs to have Ontarians buy his newspapers. You would think John would take up their cause? But no, truth doesn’t pay well.  He’s trying to pull the wool over your eyes and rake in the advertising dollars at the same time. Sort of having your cake and eating it too. This is not a good business plan. Enterprises do not do well under anarchical circumstances. We have lost the protection of the Legislature against the Liberal thugs. Is Honderich any safer than we?  Before the Rebellion of 1837 young toughs in the employ of the Family Compact broke into the print shop of William Lyon Mackenzie, smashed the presses and threw the type in the Toronto Bay. This lit a fuse among citizenry on the outside looking in. The movers and the takers in the Compact regularly ignored the laws of Ontario. After all this time, approx 180 years we are faced with the same problem. An elite [ devious Dalt ] that doesn’t respect the rule of law. I can clearly see Honderich’s position. He’s going to stick close by the Liberal Party machine and sure cash. Sandra Pupatello is apparently the front runner in the race to be the front man / woman of the Liberal machine. With 25% of the ballots [ ex officio ] at the leadership convention in machine hands THEY WILL SELECT THE PREMIER THEY WANT. Sandra is saying the right things and nothing else. She is not answering any of the tough questions but she is adamant that there will be no new election. The only way Pupatello can guarantee that is if she leaves YOUR elected representatives, sitting in the penalty box with no voice for some time to come. Voila, tyranny. So John and the Star will be on the right side of the money. Me, I’d [ if I was the PCs / NDP ] notify the Liberals that I would have no truck with them. I wouldn’t play ball. For an elected MPP to admit they he or she is willing bow to the orders of an illegitimate Junta is to become a willing accomplice in the destruction of our House of Assembly. Nothing McGuinty says or does falls within the law. What you are watching is a McGuinty who is desperately trying to avoid going to jail. And he is prepared to sacrifice OUR FREEDOM to save his skin. Whatever the outcome, a new L. G. and a recall of the Legislature or revolution remember when YOU WERE IN NEED THE TORONTO STAR STOOD WITH THE OPPRESSORS, AS DID DAVID ONLEY. Canada and Ontario have had their share of quitters in politics. Mulroney bailed when he faced certain defeat. As did Mike Harris. McGuinty has pulled the same stunt with the threat of jail cell hanging over his head. David Onley, when faced with his responsibilities to Ontarian turned tail and took off. They used to shoot soldiers who went AWOL. We have to make better choices after we restore order. One way to do that is to disregard the $ media, they speak with a forked tongue. And we have to shake the elites out of the notion that they occupy special status. Even though they may consider themselves exceptional persons, they still only have one vote.Isn’t it insteresting that in these troubled time when our Legislature is dark not one of the elites has spoken out?  Honderich / Star  CtoOnt.   —   Zero Stars

TIM HUDAK  * STARRING IN A RETURN OF THE MIKE HARRIS WELFARE FOLLIES   —   I am a PC. I was a minor Party worker in Pickering from 1959 to 1985 when the far right seized the PC banner with Frank Miller as their front man. Poor Miller didn’t know what hit him after he made a series of disasterous decisions. We lost power after 42 years but the hard right NEVER ACCEPTED RESPONSIBILITY FOR THAT LOSS [ they still haven't to this day ]. When Mike Harris came on the scene in the early 1990s I felt sure the executive of my Party would have learned their lesson and I again became a minor PC functionary in Pickering. I was in business so didn’t have a lot of time to spare but I knew my neighbours, having been a Councillor. Harris / the PCs won in 1995 with 82 seats in a 130 seat House. That was a majority of 16 seats in a House about a third the size of Parliament in Ottawa. Harper’s Fascist journalists claimed his ten seat majority in the great election theft of 2011 was huge / ginormous etc.  Mike got almost 45% of the vote. Now, them’s numbers. I figured the PCs were back. Not. Within a short period of time all of this right wing nonsense began to appear again , like taking on unions, clamping down on teachers and targeting those on welfare. Plus down loading services onto the minicipalities. My Pickering people became very restless, they didn’t like it. The mistake Harris and his insiders made was that he / they believed that they were given a mandate to implement their right wing ideology. Not. They held that Ontarians were sick of the Bob Rae and hated the Liberals, blaming them for David Peterson’s dismal performance. My PCs thought it was full steam ahead. It wasn’t.  Ontarians began to tire of Mike’s confrontational attitude [ see Steve Harper ]. In 1999 his seat count dropped to 59 in a smaller House of 103 seats [ 52 needed for a majority ]. Things were much tighter and Harris and his Junta should have recognized the warning signs to slow up on the right wing stuff. I had soon recognized that Harris, after getting elected, paid no attention to the grassroots. Workers like me had no place in the PC Party. No input from us was sought by the PC machine. Harris was flying blind. When Mike announced the sale of Ontario Hydro I like to say I blew a fuse. To me it was either a death sentence or a huge opportunity? We as a Party were mired in the deep do do. Voters were sick of the constant battling. If nothing was done the PCs were dead. If we had promised  TO FIX THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM NOT SELL IT, we’d have grabbed the brass ring.  Harris would have wiped away all the little irritants and grabbed the attention of the electorate in a positive way with such a bold move. As a grassroots PC outsider I pushed for a fix. I wrote to Harris and met Janet Ecker, my MPP. I was ignored.  Harris was more chickenshit than bold.  He realized his days were numbered and he bailed. Some leader. We had the opportunity to start building a new PC dynasty. But the right wingers who stole my Party and still own it were too wedded to their ideology. The PCs dropped from 59 seats to 24 in 2003.  I wanted to scream, ” I told you so “. But one thing about the hard right they are deaf, dumb and stupid. In 2007 the Tories were not listening to the rank and file PCers. John Tory blew it. I wish John would just go away but like a bad dream he just keeps reappearing. The PCs got 26 seats in 2007, whoopee. So from Harris to Tory the Ontario right learned nothing.  Now our boy Tim Hudak is going after unions, teachers and welfare. Our Party has been there, done that. It is so yesterday. Time to jettison the Republican baggage and turn the clock back to Leslie Frost, John Robarts abd Bill Davis. Right of centre, pro business, anti business crime, the elites only have a single vote and a series of  basic programs which are directed to the middle and lower classes. They pay most of the freight. Make it before you spend it is my attitude. And put something away for a rainy day. Very Keynesian. Work very closely with business and cover areas where private capital will not go.  Hudak / the PC body snatchers represent a small number of insiders and constitute a Party machine that has been in place since 1985. Many people like myself who always supported the PCs take a pass and have for years. The Liberals under devious Dalt have developed a party machine on a par with Hudak. The Liberal MPPs and grassroots are ignored. McGuinty has been flying blind for at least a half a dozen years and this has brought on bankruptcy. Mike Harris left office with a $ 3.5 billion hidden deficit. McGuinty is now at about a $ 14 billion deficit and I would expect some more is hidden. Party machines, PC / Fascist / Liberal are destroying democracy in this Country. The obvious choices in Ontario and and Ottawa is to consider the NDP. The main reason, THEY ARE CLOSEST TO THE PEOPLE  and are not under the control of party machines. You can remove this cancer by defeating the Liberals, both in Ontario and in Ottawa. And defeating the PCs in this Province and the Fascists Federally. The power to govern should flow from the people, through MPPs selected in each riding. Our system of parliamentary democracy demands COMPROMISE. Elected representatives working together. Corporate funding must be kept out of the governing process. This would mean that in the present circumstances we would jail the management of the US oil cartel or deport them. Tim Hudak / PC Party   CtoOnt.   —   Zero Stars

To think the people listed above are in our faces almost everyday and yet they contribute almost nothing to the whole. Two things come into play here. The above and their friends are parasites. And you know the drill. Parasites eventually kill the host and then they too die. Every society that has crashed throughout history featured an elite that took much and contributed little. An example of which is the USA that lies just south of the border. We should consider as well the curse of the common. Every family can graze so many sheep on the common. Overseers are hired to make sure everyone plays by the rules. If the overseers are bought off and certain exceptional people are allowed to graze additional sheep then the system is doomed. As time progresses with no price to pay, the elites cross the hands of the overseers with even more money and the abuse worsens. Eventually all the grass is gone, all the sheep die and all of the common folk / elites persish too. We can learn from such a tale. The common folk must be eternally vigilant to make sure there is alway enough grass to feed the sheep. Are you playing your part in standing guard FOR WE?
