Arbitration Award for Cornwall Firefighters  Obscene LTE William Hopkinson NOV 28, 2015

Obscene is one way to put it.  The way arbitrators treat taxpayers is what I’m referring to.  The latest labour contract arbitration award for Cornwall firefighters is nothing short of obscene and short-sighted.  In brief the firefighters received 1.5% for Jan. 1, 2013, 1% for July 1, 2013, 1.5% for Jan. 1, 2014, 1% for […]

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 […]

  Commentary on the 2015 elections in Canada by Pastor Tom Newton – Prime Minister Harper was not defeated because his opponent was a better man.

Dear Electors,   RE: Strategic Voting and the Fear of Wasting a Vote   With all due respect to Tim Hortons, there are some institutions that are held even dearer by Canadians: the old age pension, unemployment insurance, and universal medical care among them. And it will be news to many that not one of […]

Re: Federal parties start to play their economic cards, Jason Fekete, May 5, 2015 http://ottawacitizen.com/news/politics/federal-parties-start-to-play-their-economic-cards The conventional wisdom is that whichever party forms government will not have much financial breathing room, especially with the collapse of world oil prices. In fact, while there are ideological and eventual real resource restraints, there is no financial constraint […]

Letter to the Editor by Pastor Tom Newton : Municipalities will obey ban on prayers APRIL 23, 2015

  Yes, the High Court of the Land has spoken, and many gladly obey. Another nail in the coffin of religious freedom and expression! I am not surprised at the High Court’s decision here, seeing its track record on past ungodly actions: abortion, same sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, and many others. The trend is more […]

Queen’s Park is at it again in its support of sexual diversity. It is Bill 77 this time.
