Wynne Union Expense Payments Beg Question from William Hopkinson of Cornwall – LTE Oct 29, 2015
Union expenses??
 
Seriously?? The government has been paying the various teachers unions “expenses” during contract negotiations?  How long has this been going on?  If my reading is correct it has been since at least 2008.  And to top it off this is being done with no accountability!!  When is the government going to realize that the money they are playing with is not theirs?  This is taxpayer’s money and MUST be used with prudence.  The taxpayers are not an ATM that can be tapped whenever a government or political party has a pet project that they want completed and don’t feel like paying for it out of their own pocket.
 
The government paying the various teachers unions “expenses” during contract negotiations is akin to me buying a house and asking the seller to pay my house inspection fees and lawyer’s fees.  The government does not cover other unions “expenses” during contract negotiations.  Why are the teachers unions special?  Was the government trying to buy the unions endorsements during election campaigns?
 
There are so many questions that remain unanswered about the government paying the various teachers unions “expenses” during contract negotiations.  Will we ever get answers?  I seriously doubt it.  Liz Sandals and Kathleen Wynne seem very good at putting the spin on this they want.  Hopefully the media can keep the pressure up until we get the answers we need and deserve.

If anyone needs further proof that the teacher’s unions and the government are in bed with each other all they need to do is read today’s Ottawa Sun. Apparently the Wynne government is going to fund a a benefits trust to pay for teacher perks, called the Employee Life and Health Trust with the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF). This “benefit” will cost us taxpayers $5 million dollars plus $300 per full-time employee will be provided in addition to that amount. Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod brought a motion that was passed in the legislature this week asking for Auditor… Read more »

William Hopkinson the question is not so much when will the Liberal government of Ontario realize that it is taxpayers money but rather when will the taxpayer realize that the Ontario Liberals, for over a decade, have absolutely no respect for the taxpayer? McGuinty was excellent at delivering sound bits, telling us what most wanted to hear. Wynne, his understudy, has taken his style of politics to a new level and literally laughs at the taxpayer and was rewarded for her deception and disgusting arrogance with a majority government. Bottom line for me is that the government is not the… Read more »

Yes, the electorate is ultimately responsible for the mess we are in in Ontario. The Cons in Ontario might have won if Tim Hudak wasn’t their leader at the time and hadn’t spouted the million jobs plan.

Hugger, the Cons didn’t want to win the last two Ontario elections. Who’s gonna vote for a party that clearly doesn’t want the job of governing?
David, you keep threatening to leave this horrible country. What’s holding you back?

Wait until you all see what the liberal/fiberals are going to do and the taxes that all the sheeple will be forking out to pay for all that has to be done and paying for teachers who hardly even work. My God Almighty we have a mighty brainless society today – mighty brainless. Just wait you all haven’t seen anything yet and it is coming and that is so true.

Here we go again. Don’t forget Jules you are one of the sheeple as the Ontario liberals will screw us all, not just a select few. I think Jules would have a good career as a fortune teller. So many of her predictions are so on. ROLF LOL

Hugger my predictions have already started to come true and you will see more and more as time goes on. You are the one who burries his head in the sand and doesn’t want to see it for what it really is – you cannot handle the truth. I for one am not stranded with household debt and I have the means to buy what I want and I am not tossing bills up in the air wondering what to pay first. I am one who does not follow the herd over the cliff at all – I am very… Read more »

Yeap, okay Jules. Your “predictions” have started to come true? I haven’t seen the New World Order yet. That is one you have been trumpeting the last few years, amongst others. As I’ve said before we can’t get parts of countries to agree how to do things. You actually think the whole world is going to follow one single way of doing things? Good luck with that one!! I haven’t seen one of your so called “predictions” come true or come anywhere near being true. I do NOT have my head buried in the sand. And I don’t want to… Read more »

Hugger all the wars in the Middle East is all the beginning of the New World Order and you are living in it. The TPP is also part of the New World Order. The Mexican invasion into the US is also part of the NWO. There is a great deal more as well. There is the World Bank being formed, the IMF, the United Nations is already part of the NWO and so many other things as well. Hugger hang on to your shorts because this is only the beginning of things to come.

Okay Jules. You can believe that if you want. But don’t say I have my head buried in the sand because I don’t think it’ll happen.
