"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Truth and Consequences

Paul Godfrey is out as Chairman of Ontario Lottery and  Gaming, Government confirms.

 That was Kathleen Wynne's first blooper.

Ottawa's Mayor  demanded equality in hosting fees between  cities .  Without waiting to see how things work  the brand spanking  new premier  assured Hottawa  there would be.equality. 

As f the two cities are the same. 

Right there ,  ignorance and recklessness sounded a warning knell. 

Even with Toronto Mayor's support ,the vote for a casino  was not a slam dunk.  

The deal had to appeal  With a good deal ,the Fords could easily persuade the  people of  the merits of a casino outweigh the negatives. 

Jobs and revenue  and  jobs are  always good persuaders. 

The government is refusing to release the formula forhosting fees. Of course they are.  It would  certainly show wrong the Premier was, when she  charged into the discussion without  first consulting with the agency in charge. 

Chairman Godfrey out  on the eve of a strike at the LCBO   cannot be seen as a plus. 

An election now   would  mean  the Liberals  tossed for certain sure.  

No business can take confidence from this performance.  

All the elaborate planning for McGuinty to  step aside to escape  consequences for a political decision that cost  Ontario's taxpayers and hydro users  millions  of wasted resources. 

I heard ion Focus Ontario, most of the money  squandered  for an extra seat to keep the Liberals in power must be recovered in higher hydro costs,

The consumer pays.  Of course we wll. Don't we always?

If Andrea Horvath votes to keep them in  power in the  face of cmplete incompetence , the NDP will carry the  overflowing can.  .

Kathleen's winning smile will not  help Ontario's voters  to forget  their  troubles. 

The entire OLG board has resigned with the ouster of Paul Godfrey. 

Oh dearie me .

This is what you get from "politicians" who do not believe in anything, except for their own vainglorious selves.

Can you imagine what was once the engine of Canada's economy being run like the Mickey Mouse Club?

And grade 5 kids in Ottawa have written Harper to ease up on Trudeau. These kids are smarter than most adults.

How goofy of them to all resign. It just make it easier if the decision is made to replace them. Much better to have a clean slate upon which to write.
