Ontario’s long-awaited election day is finally almost upon us. There is a unanimous view that the Liberals are finally going to be thrown out, bag and baggage, after four catastrophic terms, when the province was mortgaged to hare-brained alarm about climatology and electricity-generating facilities were shut down and solar energy
Cornwall Ontario – In what has been a very odd election campaign it appears that Doug Ford has kept his cool and will become Ontario’s next Premier on June 7th. Between the political assassination of former PC leader Patrick Brown to the early concession of Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne, it’s
Cornwall Ontario – The NDP released a video purporting to include a statement from Liberal Education Minister Mitzie Hunter in which the Minister clearly states that the Wynne Government would not use back to work legislation to CUPE. Of course the question is how this CUPE recording ended up in
