Labour Day in Lamoureux Parc in Cornwall Ontario – VIDEO – September 5, 2010

Cornwall ON – Federal NDP candidate Darlene Jalbert looks like she’s doing her rendition of Pee Wee Herman dancing to “Tequila”!  A good time was had in Lamoureux Park Labour Day Monday.  You can tell it’s election time as politicians from the usual NDP labour supporters were joined by Mayor Bob Kilger, and city councilors Bernadette Clement, Mark MacDonald who’s also running for mayor, and Syd Gardiner.

Over 500 people visited, and had a super time.  There was entertainment, kite flying, and the coolest little train circling the park for kids of all ages!  It shows that people do really care about having better jobs in the community, and the community spirit in general in the park was electric.

Mayorality candidate Nicole Spahich also was present along with Gary Samler, Maurice Dupelle, and Jason Setnyk, all running for council.

Today’s Cornwall Labour Day celebrations at the park was great! I had the opportunity to shake hands with over 200 Cornwall residents and talked a bit about municipal politics. I met with union reps, firefighters, school teachers, health care workers, and factory workers; families, working class, and seniors. It was a productive day and I learned a lot. I enjoyed the live music, entertainment, and the BBQ. I marched proudly in solidarity with the workers of Cornwall Ontario. It was a fantastic day, and kudos to everyone who helped organize it! Well done!

I hope this helps smee. Letter to the Editor by Darlene Jalbert – A Stronger Canada Pension Plan A Stronger Canada Pension Plan For your entire career you work hard and build a good life for your family. Every Pay cheque, your deductions include a small amount that is tucked away in your public pension plan. When retirement comes, you expect to be able to live in dignity with some measure of financial security. Yet this recession has shown that things might not be as secure as you have been led to believe. Your RRSP has been decimated by the… Read more »

I read about that willie The concerns here are where we are going to get the money to increase the CPP/QPP, when people seem to have enough problems just buying groceries.. And why do we differentiate from CPP and QPP? If we look at the more lucrative pension plans and yea let’s look at the politicians, the pay or sorry we pay I think %10 of their earnings. Teachers pension plans have teachers paying if memory serves 18% plus 1.5% indexing and people of Ontario contribute the rest to a cost exceeding 800 million, at that rate 1 billion sounds… Read more »

HAHAHAHA!!! Guy ran away during mention of better pensions for Canadians??? what an awesome MP people voted in… and this guy is about to get a golden handshake…

smee
Guest

yep grim a golden handshake with a pension to boot
.
There is another thing about pensions, why do we pay for a civil servants like Lauzon or Brownell. If any one of us provided the results for our employers as those two did for their constituents not only would we be out of a pension but a job as well.

I would like to hear Darlene or the Green Party incumbent comment on that concern. Taxation with out representation I think it would be referred to.

Politicians line their pockets first, giving us peasants just a pittance. And we accept it, shrug our shoulders and say, there is nothing I can do about. No use in voting. I hear it often. BTW, Darlene didn’t run away.

Yeah, Guy has to go… talk about one of the most useless politicians I have ever known…

Smee, an incumbent is an elected politician who is holding office. I don’t think the Green Party has ever had an incumbent.

Furtz, you can’t take Smee seriously, because, after all, he’s proved time and again in these posts that he’s only semi-literate, and has a hard time dealing with facts. As for the Green Party never having had an incumbent, technically, you’re wrong. Unfortunately I can’t remember the gentleman’s name, but the full details are in Elizateth May’s book, Losing Confidence. I don’t remember if it was in the 2006 or 2008 election, but Harper and Layton were fighting desperately not to include the Green Party leader in the TV candidates’ debate, although the party fully qualified in terms of number… Read more »

I am aware of what an incumbent is Furtz, The Greens were never elected in our area but they did earn status in the previous election. That is how they were able to attend the debate. Jamie I doubt the main streams are threatened by the Greens. It is more concern for loosing potential votes to a party with no main idealism or focus for Canada. The Green party takes it’s Ten Key Values based on the United States Green Party. Talk about a party selling out th the US. Watcher, I am not sure what you are watching but… Read more »

Smee, your semi-literacy continues to amaze everyone. Did you actually read my post? But congratulations on getting someone to explain the word incumbent to you. And no, Smee, the reason the Greens were not invited to the debate is because Harper and Layton felt threatened. Because of their number of candidates, and their previous percentages of the vote, they had every right to be there. As for the party taking its ten key points from the US Greens, is there something wrong with that, if they happen to be correct and fair? And by the way, most of these points… Read more »

Nope watcher I do not read all your posts. They are usually incorrect and poorly written. They are opinion based and lack facts.
Case in point
“the reason the Greens were not invited to the debate is because Harper and Layton felt threatened. Because of their number of candidates, and their previous percentages of the vote, they had every right to be there”

Once again you let media rule your poor decisions. Remember Chicken Little *lol*

Smee, you don’t have a clue, do you? Why don’t you let someone who actually can read and write explain all these posts to you.
And anyone who writes that the Americans entered WW2 on Sept 11, 1944, in a “supporting role” simply cannot be taken seriously as a historical commentator.

And Smee, everyone knows you can’t read all of my posts. Why don’t you get someone to read them to you, and explain them?
Or perhaps you could enroll yourself in Tri-County Literacy.

SMEE’S REAL IDENTITY!

Yes, I’ve finally figured it out. Judging by the style, the nonsense, the constant denials of reality, and the prohibition of using his real name in dealing with the media SMEE is really GUY LAUZON.

BWAHAHAHAH!!! Unfortunately, even smee has more of a personal opinion than Guy can probably ever put out..

Stan

Who is Guy Lauzon? Does he do anything in this area?

Wow watcher three consecutive posts lacking proper grammar and intellectual content.
We can also mention your desire to only quote portions of discussions that suit your purpose. I corrected myself on the date the US entered the war. If you can read that far back I commented on how they became the pawns for the British after landing in Ireland.

But then again I believe you will have issues with that information as it was neither on discovery nor the military channel.
