Murton Ripoff

You may recall being sold advertising space in several magazines by a character calling himself “Pete or Peter Moore”. These magazines in question are the Bloor News, Queen Street News, Danforth Magazine, St Clair Magazine, Harbour Front News, and St Jamestown News. These magazine were published by a local Jack-Of-No-Trades named Paul Murton who currently holds an ‘F-‘ rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Since you paid for advertising space in these magazines, you need to look on their archive where you will notice nothing has been published since their last November 2012 edition… http://issuu.com/paulmurton – THAT WAS ALMOST SEVEN MONTHS AGO!!!

You paid to be in six magazines, yet all six are the exact same magazine with a different cover. You paid to have your ad published bimonthly, but Pete Moore sold you a lie… seems they publish more like biyearly. You paid to have the public notice your ad, yet these magazines have practically no circulation. The rare time these publications are released are in EXTREAMLY small numbers for the sole purpose of maintaining and generating ad revenue. In other words the only people who can get a copy are advertisers like yourself.

You need to call the publisher, Paul Murton at (416) 693-8530 and demand answers to why you did not get the service you paid for! Why has he taken your money and done NOTHING since last November? While you are at it, request a refund – don’t stand for any bartering for a free upgraded ad size in a magazine that is never circulated – don’t stand for a freebee online coupon for your business on a deserted webpage – don’t stand for anything less then a full refund for the amount you were ripped off.

You should also call the pitchman, a person you know as Peter Moore, whose real name is Robin Jenkins better known on the street as CRACKHEAD BOB due to his unrepentant abuse of people stemming from a severe addiction to narcotics. You can reach “Peter” on his cell at (416) 333-7161 if he is conscious and sober. You need to let Peter Moore know you will no longer be taken advantage of when CRACKHEAD BOB needs some quick cash.

Sincerely,

Your Ward News

Well played, developers! Your angular planes, penthouse shadows, optical illusions and other visual distractions worked marvelously.

With the help of local politicians and several “helpful” citizens’ organizations, Beachers face a dangerous future highlighted by floods, sink-holes and even worse geological disasters. Your Ward 32 News has devoted several years researching the underground rivers, ponds and tributaries subterranean to our beautiful Beach neighborhood.

Few paid us any mind, but we don’t wish the inevitable hydrological nightmare on Beachers whose lives are too busy to have shared our concerns. You are our neighbors! The public meeting at City Hall addressed the building guidelines for Queen Street East from Coxwell Avenue to Nursewood Road. Squeezed from the notorious “visioning study”, the councilors all predictably voted ‘YES’ to the guidelines.

Dubbed by our Ward 32 councilor as the Beach Bible, Your Ward News has predicted an apocalyptic conclusion of biblical proportions to our little piece of heaven. Our extensive study focused on the hydrological mayhem that will occur in the Beach should another rain event like Hurricane Hazel strike Toronto again. Several people, including yours truly, were allowed to speak their minds before the vote as per the rules governing municipal meetings of this nature.

This included a rep from the Riedel Group who claimed that the Beach ended at the North-East corner of Queen and Woodbine. This feeble attempt at gerrymandering (reshaping geographical boundaries for political advantage) was done because their building proposal is at the North-West corner of Queen and Woodbine. Nice try, but painfully transparent.

Known as the Gateway to the Beach, the former gas station at the NE corner has already wreaked havoc on the apartment building directly to the north of that toxic property. A speaker that represented the tenants revealed that their building was already cracking in places. Considering that not a single brick has yet been laid, a disaster is GUARANTEED at this location.

Despite that fact, only the view of the Fire Hall Clock seemed important to our pro-development councilor. Upon completion of the Q and A segment of this hearing, our ward 32 councilor excitedly proclaimed, “THIS IS TERRIFIC!!! I’D LIKE TO RECORD A VOTE!!!” After the ‘YES’ vote, she actually yelled, “I’d like to give a SHOUT-OUT to the Planning Staff and the City Staff for all they have done!!!” (A shout-out??? Is she in grade nine???)

The public meeting was conducted under the banner of the Toronto and East York Community Council. Your Ward 32 News was present from 10:00 AM until 2:30 PM when the issue-at-hand was finally heard. The entire day could have easily been called Development-Fest, as one builder or lawyer after another laid out the details of the proposal that they represented. The councilors that were present loved every project or modification that was presented to them.

They openly praised the existence of the OMB (Ontario Municipal Board) who are also ‘team players’ who don’t care about environmental hazards in the Beach or anywhere else in this province. The two proposals at the North-East and North-West corners of Queen and Woodbine are the only developments that must still be rubber-stamped by the Ontario Municipal Board. This is because the developers there have asked for MUCH MORE than they actually want, knowing that any limitations put forth by the OMB will leave the developers with what they REALLY want (Shoot for an eagle, hope for a crow).

All of us at Your Ward News have tried our best to save the future of our beloved Beach. We may be a lone voice in the wilderness, but we are a voice that will never be silent when it comes to the most important local issues. We promise, fellow Beachers!

The Toronto Star, Well “Red”

The Toronto Star continues in it’s attempt to assassinate Mayor Rob Ford. Targeted for political destruction, our mayor has been hounded, stocked and libeled by this notoriously Marxist fish-wrap. From the grassy knoll adjacent to Rob’s property to the sports gridiron where he helps to coach at-risk youth, the Star is determined to destroy our elected mayor. The Toronto Star was first published in 1892 and was originally known as the Evening Star and then the Toronto Daily Star. The newspaper has long been referred to as the ‘Red Star’ due to the evil Marxist ideology it has consistently promoted by way of ‘yellow’ journalism. Another interesting characteristic of this propaganda-sheet is the paper’s complete lack of shame when caught lying red-handed. They are also masters of the ‘big lie’, knowing that they work better than ‘little lies’. (Your sense of fairness won’t allow you to believe that anyone would have the audacity to knowingly advance such monstrous untruths). When Mayor Ford was accused by mayoral hopeful Sarah Thomson of sexually assaulting her, his political detractors attempted to characterize the allegation as a “he said-she said” when it was clearly a “voices-in-her-head-said”. But the Toronto Star did its best to portray Mayor Ford as a drunk who routinely attacks women. They were also happy to allow Sarah Thomson to insinuate he may be a cocaine user. Media-watchers and news-junkies have long been aware of the disturbing nature of the ultra-left Star and for years Your Ward News has tried to expose this evil rag to the general public. The people of Toronto elected Rob Ford. The people believe in Rob Ford. Educated citizens must write, fax, phone and e-mail the Toronto Star and inform them that you now know the truth about them. Astrologers say that the stars don’t lie, but we’re aware of one that does little else!

Our current Ward 30 counselor Paula Fletcher began her political career not in Toronto, but in Manitoba. Her first attempt to hold public office was running for the Winnipeg School Board in Ward 2 of that city. After a failed undertaking to shape the young and fragile minds of youth, one year latter Fletcher ran for and was successfully elected leader of the Communist Party of Canada, for the province of Manitoba. Fletcher held the position of Manitoba Chairwoman of Communist “Workers” for five years, running twice in the provincial elections. Although her home riding in Winnipeg was the lower class, fiercely NDP electoral division of Burrows; Fletcher on both occasions held less than 2% of the popular vote with 144 and 131 votes respectively. After her abysmal failure in Manitoba she left her comrades in Winnipeg and the Manitoba Communist Party for greener pastures. Shortly thereafter Fletcher made the trip to Toronto without a visa stamp on her internal passport and subverted her way into Toronto City Hall as an executive assistant. Always believing that children are our future, Fletcher’s first grasp of power in her life of ‘social progress’ was that of school trustee for the Toronto District School Board in Ward 15. Today as counselor for Ward 30 she continues to fight for the values and goals of the Communist people. The hammer and sickle, the symbol of the “collapsed” Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is the banner under which at least 20,000,000 people were murdered, and countless others imprisoned. This state had no respect for any of the freedoms we take for granted in our country today. Freedom of thought, freedom of association, freedom of movement, freedom of religion, just to mention a few, all these were banned “for the common good” in Communist Russia. Soviet Russia is alive and well. The “reforms” in the Russian Federation are merely a deception. The old guard is still in charge. As quickly as freedom is allowed, it can be taken away. Just because the cage is opened and the bird allowed to fly, as long as a rope is tied to it’s feet it can be quickly yanked back in. Not until the Communist Leaders are made to stand trial for their crimes against the world, will the working people be truly free. Many people outside Russia still subscribe to the “ideals” of Soviet communism. How many millions more people will die or be enslaved before this evil system is eradicated? Anyone who denies that this system represents the greatest evil the world has ever seen is either a Communist or a Communist dupe. We challenge any commie to give us an instance of any political organization that has caused more death and misery than Communists in Russia and China. Imagine the universal uproar and outrage that would occur if a political organization decided to use the swastika today for its symbol. Far more people died under the Communist banner, yet it is still used world wide. Don’t these people know what the hammer and sickle stands for, don’t they care; or are they just hoping to pick up where Stalin left off? Many organizations continue to use this evil symbol of death and destruction. These groups don’t deserve a place in decent society. All these groups unashamedly parrot the same dogma that led the Soviet Leaders to commit their atrocities. How many more mass murders must the world endure under the banner of International communism?

Since February 18th, former employees have been picketing at 90 Shuter Street, outside of the Homes First administration office. Over 70 employees lost their jobs when their contracts expired, and Homes First has been hiring temp agencies to fill the vacant positions. Instead of updating their résumés, the former employees have been showing up bright and early at 8am, and leaving at lunchtime. The employees of Homes First work on behalf of homeless people by claiming to help the homeless get homes, as well as providing support and assistance. In a telephone interview with Emily Visser, an OPSEU communications administrator, I asked her if she thought that the budget cuts were responsible for the employee contracts not being renewed. “It’s not about money at all” she said. “They’re trying to push the union out of the workplace.” So what? Whether this is true or not, the striking former employees have been a disruptive presence outside of the Homes First administrative office for over four weeks now. When I spoke with a Homes First administrator named Kim, she said that Homes First have called the police on the protestors several times. “I don’t know what they’re trying to accomplish” she remarked. I happen to personally live in the neighborhood where the strike takes place each morning, and I telephoned the police myself one afternoon, during the second week of the protest, because picketers were protesting in the streets, making a traffic accident a strong possibility. I also called the office of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, to report the disruptive group. He telephoned me back several days later and spoke with me about the matter for nearly fifteen minutes. “They shouldn’t be disrupting people” he commented. “I’ll call the police myself and find out what’s going on.” The Mayor is clearly a busy man, because he hasn’t seemed to notice that for the past four weeks, the former employees of Homes First have been protesting outside of City Hall each Friday, from 12 noon until 2pm. I attended one of the protests, and heard such ridiculous slogans as “union busting is disgusting” and “we don’t hate, we just want to negotiate”. Now, having attended several of these protests in person rather than simply view them from my bedroom window, and having spoken with most of the people involved, I must say realistically, if their contracts have expired, then what obligation does Homes First have to these people? Apparently, Homes First feels an obligation. Two days after I became officially involved in investigating the strike and the reasons for it, personally speaking with our Mayor Rob Ford and attending the Homes First workers protest at City hall, a new three year contract was ratified. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the protest was about the homeless, because clearly it was about the workers losing their jobs. With the administrative costs to taxpayers in welfare payments, shelters, drop-in centers and medical services covering the needs of the homeless, what right does the Ontario Public Service Employees Union have to funds that are allegedly budgeted to the homeless? If temp agencies can cut the red tape and the tax trough, while still offering a bunk and meal to the truly legitimate… then so be it! But at least the protests have finally ended, and I can get some peace and quiet in my neighborhood.

Your Ward News continues to be active in attempting to save the beautiful dogs that are being used as props to extort money from Beach residents. Cruelty to animals is contrary to the values of most of our family and friends. Is it fair for a dog to be forced to freeze all day for the soul purpose of raising monies for a “street-person”? Or to cook every day through a broiling heat wave? Should ANY person have a pet if they are too poor to support themselves? Poverty is a serious problem, but it’s a human problem in which innocent animals need not participate. Your Ward News has also learned that many of Queen Street’s panhandlers are not homeless at all. Along with the dog, homelessness is just part of the pitch. So, what to do? We could snatch one of these dogs while another animal-liberator creates a distraction, but that’s a bit sketchy and they would just nab another dog. Your Ward News could make a lump-sum offer for one of these beautiful animals, but again, another furry fund-raiser would quickly take its place. Dog is man’s best friend. But is man dog’s best friend? We can prove that we are by ending this barbaric practice that assures the unethical treatment of animals. Our hearts go out to the less fortunate and disabled in our society, but we will not allow innocent animals to be sacrificed on the altar of human social justice. If readers have any suggestions as to how we might resolve this issue, please call us @ 416-693-6325 immediately and share your idea. Dog Justice Delayed is Dog Justice Denied!

You probably think that the Toronto – East York Community Council brings local Metro affairs right to your doorstep. Not so! Not so in any way! FUHGEDDABOUDIT!!! Meetings of this sub-Council are scheduled to keep most of us out. They are managed to squelch our voices. “Community” Meetings are at city Hall, more than a half-hour from Main Street; either by T.T.C. and walking, or by car and parking. They are held only during business-hours, when most people with jobs cannot attend. For no more than five minutes, you can have only one chance to express your views or ask your questions. Don’t expect any interaction with any of the grand government gurus at the Head Table. Their main aim is discovering how to counter any objections to the decisions that already have been made. By their steady silence, they portray dignified wisdom and fairness. Is it just a rehearsal for the next election? The much more democratic procedure would be several meetings in different evenings of any week or more, each in several different local meeting-halls. Beachers and East Yorkers have attended, in the hundreds for these local meeting in recent years. There was “Save-Our-Shoreline” (from windmill farming). We now continue with “Save Queen Street” (from invasion by condo-creep). We welcomed these occasions to meet neighbours and exchange ideas in order, out-of-order, and in casual groups. The only people inconvenienced by this arrangement would be Councillors, and/or their Executive Assistants. They prefer to be paid and fed for no more than regular hours of artful yapping, to no noticeably useful ends.
