Who stole Mary-Margaret McMahon’s bicycle? For the record LeRoy St. Germaine only rides electric bikes, and was not present at city hall during the morning of the alleged theft. The bike, valued new at $500 gives renewed vigor to McMahon’s $1.2 million dollar scheme to build an absolutely ludicrous den of iniquity under Nathan Phillips Square. Stick it to the motorists!

“We have parking lots with attendants watching your cars” says McMahon “why not bikes?” Well Mary-Margaret, allow me to retort. You want to tax & waste so bums and prostitutes can shower in City Hall’s parking lot. Why not also offer beds and a sauna, or maybe a few tanning booths. Don’t worry about the profit loss by losing prime parking space, you can always tax some more when Toronto goes bankrupt!

Make busy / make money councillors like Mary-Margaret McMahon are using this “tragic incident” to continue demanding a bike station with showers and changing rooms under city hall. Despite Councillor Doug Ford defending the taxpayers that not only is it money down the drain, the utterly pointless project will mean a permanent loss of revenue.

The station will be in the underground garage, below City Hall. Meaning the city will, in the name of being green have to give up $70,000 a year in just lost parking fees alone! “We’re taking away parking space down here at City Hall that is creating $70,000 worth of revenue, and — ready for this, folks? — they are putting in showers for the bike riders to come down here, to a tune of $1.2 million” said Doug Ford. How could ANYONE think that having a changing room and showers in an underground parking lot at the hub of the downtown T.O. is a good idea?!?!? How many people have had to use the un-secured stairwells in downtown parking lots? You would be hard-pressed not to find heroin cooking paraphernalia, used syringes, broken crack pipes and semen filled condoms. In other words they are prime, but filthy locations for a quick hit, or a private screw.

Councillor Ford in his own words agrees, noting that this new waste of money would become a bathhouse. Why would it not? Nathan Phillips Square is already a 5-star homeless park, save when major events are held. The nanny-state of NDP councillors finds any criticism of their fellow lefty cronies to be homophobic. Any objections to this waste of taxpayer money is now met with public attacks designed to shut up any intelligent thought.

Indeed, bike theft happens all the time in every major city. Some bicyclists make it a mission to track down their stolen property personally, while others offer a monetary reward for their bike’s safe return. Mary-Margaret McMahon on the other hand went on a full out internet rant, demanding information on the whereabouts of her banana yellow bike, which she disturbingly calls the love of her life. Always one to make sure her constituents never get a wooden nickel of their tax dollars back, McMahon is only offering some stale muffins as a reward. Thank-you Mary!

By ROBERT JAMES Sheeple is a term that highlights the herd behavior of people by likening them to sheep, a herd animal. The term is used to describe those who voluntarily acquiesce to a suggestion without critical analysis or research. People unable to think for themselves. Followers. Lemmings. Those with no cognitive abilities of their own. The full information on Sammy Yatim’s death has yet to be released publicly. We do not have all the facts, yet for a city councilor to pander to the public’s misguided rage is sickening. While it is clear Sammy was mentally challenged, the police can not be faulted for not being social workers. When the life of yourself and fellow officers is on the line, a split second is all it takes. In this situation the police can not weigh the possibility of mental illness v.s. narcotic induced psychosis. It was very clear Vince Weiguang Li is severely deranged. The perpetrator survived a police takedown, found not criminally responsible for murder, and lives comfortably at the Selkirk mental health facility. Li is allowed to go for walks around the low-security grounds and there is talk of his release. Where is justice for Tim McLean? Garnet Caton, a 26-year-old seismic driller who sat one row ahead of McLean, described hearing “a blood-curdling scream” saying “I turned around and the guy sitting right behind me was standing up and stabbing another guy with a big Rambo knife…. right in the throat. Repeatedly!” While Sammy Yatim did not yet have the chance to cause harm, to the police they have only a brief moment in time to consider a clear and present danger to their lives. No mentally fit police officer ever wants to unholster their firearm in the line of duty, but as a requirement of the job they must be able to protect themselves and the public. The simple fact is mental illness is not an excuse to violently act out, nor is being under the influence of drugs; whether you are a peace officer or a civilian. We need to support both the family of Sammy and the police, while allowing the facts to become public. Janet Davis believes the police did nothing to save his life, yet that day the public was saved, as was the TTC driver and our police responders. For Janet Davis to immediately side with the highly emotional crowd for political advancement is just another in a long line of moves that proves she is unfit for office!

Open Letter to Rob Ford

September 13, 2013

Friday, September 6, 2013 Dear Mayor Ford, We would like to thank you very much for taking the time to resolve a three month “by law gridlock confusion” with a Trillium Garden here in Scarborough. You graciously and firmly established the content of the problem, and with incredible quickness of spirit and resolve, understood the significance of the improvements, and the need to preserve these. You also immediately grasped and resolved other facets of the community’s concerns. We are very grateful. As you know, many people in Guildwood have an interest in this garden, and in gardening in general, and we are happily reporting now to those asking for the results of a long complicated “discussion” with City directives. As you know, there are literally hundreds who wish the survival of this design of the garden who are now quite relieved. We would love to see you at the Awards at the Scarborough Civic Centre, October 3rd, 6:30, if you have time. We can appreciate that this garden owes its very life to you. The focal piece is the corner. It is also significant that our perception of being treated unfairly, undemocratically, was righted by your intervention and solutions. People know they have a champion of fairness in your good Office. Thank you from all of us here in Guildwood, and beyond, because the interesting story of this garden’s evolution, and ultimate protection by yourself, has reached people downtown, the Beach, and Etobicoke. You are the People’s Mayor, and it is clear that you will be Mayor for as long as you yourself will choose. We pray and know it will be, a long tenure. Warm wishes, and with respect, Sherri Lange and Michael Spencley Toynbee Trail, Scarborough, Ontario. PS: Kindly express our thanks for your staff also, who attended the site visit on a Friday afternoon.

Wind Turbine Wildlife Hell

September 13, 2013

By: Sherri Lange, CEO NA-PAW, North American Platform Against Wind Power A new website, focused on the damages of industrial wind turbines to wildlife, farm animals, pets, people, birds and bats is making waves. New incredibly damaging information has emerged showing the fallacies and dangers of having wind producers do their own environmental assessments, reviews, and counts of dead birds and bats. The numbers are MUCH higher than anyone could have imagined! (www.windturbinewildlifehell.org) Jim Wiegand, a noted wildlife biologist and turbine bird and bat mortality specialist shared several documents and diagrams showing the circumference of what is being counted, and the actual areas where kills take place. Also noted by Jim, are the scant times of counting, not nearly frequent enough, not timely enough, and the mysterious disappearing carcasses, people obviously paid to not discover and to hide. Reported bird and bat kills are the tip of the iceberg! Thanks, Jim, for your diligence, and for showing us what a nasty brutish industry this really is. Of course, net zero power is collected from the killing fields, as well. “No matter how anyone feels about wind turbines, no one should condone the corruption, the silent fraud, and bogus studies supporting this industry.” —Jim Wiegand, Wildlife Biologist I cannot stress this enough. From what I have seen from looking at wind industry bird & bat mortality studies, this industry and our wildlife agencies are so corrupt they might as well all be selling used cars with their odometers turned back at least 90%— because this is how bad it really is. Across the nation official bird and bat-kill estimates have been derived from studies rigged to hide mortality. The real numbers are at least 10 times the amount being reported and sometimes far more. Altamont Pass has reported less than a hundred dead bats in 30 years of service, although thousands have been killed there. This industry is “set up” to hide mortality and the latest “incidental take” or “kill permits” for a few endangered bats could end up being 5000. A single permit for an eagle could easily end up with dozens being killed. One wind turbine in Delaware was reported to be killing about 82 birds and bats per year. This may sound like a lot, but after looking over the study I believe they covered up over 95% of the mortality. With their tiny searches on the gravel area around the turbine, all the data collected using flawed search intervals, flawed searcher efficiency trials, and flawed scavenger removal rates—rendering the mortality figures completely meaningless. Even two gulls that were seen killed by this turbine were not counted because they fell outside the “designated” little search area. The distance carcasses travel is one of the primary ways the industry uses to rig their mortality studies. Industry studies are designed to look in an area that goes out no more than 50 meters and AWAY from the direction of carcasses throw. The blades on most of the larger turbines are 50 meters or longer. One study that slipped through the cracks on midsized turbines showed approximately 45% of fatalities being found at 50 meters or more. On the newer 2-3 MW turbines, it is likely to be 80% or more. Goodhue County, Minnesota, put up a several-year battle and defeated this industry. The community was unified in the effort to save their eagles and other species from these turbines. I believe the project developers knew a court battle was inevitable and, since it meant the industry’s hidden mortality would be publicly disclosed, they left town. When you think about it, no matter what experts or representatives from conservation groups the developers called in for testimony—what could they really say? They would all look like idiots trying to defend the industry’s bogus mortality data. Then think of all the new information that would be revealed from subpoenas compelling this industry and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to produce documents. (I keep an entire list handy, awaiting that glorious day.) Big Wind knows their data will not hold up. This is why every community should be dragging these people into court. A generation ago these were the people we incarcerated or ran out of our neighborhoods. Now these same people are fleecing us of our tax dollars while putting us on the path of massive industrial blight and extinction of species. ~ MORE NEWS THAT WIND CREATES HAVOC: MORE C02, MORE ghg EMISSIONS ~ From a letter to the editor “Manitoulin Expositor” week of September 3, 2013: Proponents of wind turbines argue that wind power is better than other harmful forms of energy such as burning fossil fuels or even nuclear power. But as we discovered, there has to be a backup, and that involves the burning of fossil fuels. The extraction of natural gas particularly by fracking can produce significant amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas about 20x more powerful than CO2. Some studies, including those using data from Colorado and Texas, show that as the level of wind capacity increases, the CO2 emissions actually increase, and in the best case, CO2 reductions are either so small as to be insignificant or too expensive to be practical. Europe has been building wind turbines for several decades and over 20,000 are installed in Germany alone. CO2 and pollutant production has actually increased in Germany and new coal plants have had to be built as a result of the intermittent supply from wind turbines. A report by the Irish National Grid showed that as the level of wind capacity increased, the CO2 emissions also rose. Denmark produces about 20 percent of its electricity from wind and has subsidized the wind industry for decades, however this wind power has not made a major difference in the country’s carbon dioxide emissions, coal consumption, or oil use. * Reliance on wind power may increase greenhouse gas production overall! *

ATTENTION!!! Sociopaths! Megalomaniacs! Deliberate Misinformers! Wanna-Be Empire-Builders! WANTED: To run for City Council… By Mr. David Nesbitt We wish that our experiences and alerted observations had not aroused our suspicions that our municipal elections seem to put into power too many people who could qualify as specified above. SOCIOPATHIC? You know right from wrong. You choose wrong, if it gets you what you want. No regrets; no shame; ever. In fact you’re proud of it. It frames your charming smiles, and gracious praise of the suckers who pay you, even eventually out-of-Office, from their endless contributions of taxes. MEGALOMANIACAL? No praise, honour, pay, or token of respect ever will quell your desperate quest for eminence within any gathering of any people. Think of the thrill you get from sitting at the Head table, with people who really are important (which you really are not!). You want always to have something to say, so you love chaos that keeps issues on the table. DECEIVER? You know you won’t keep your promises. They are just devices in the mechanics of campaigning for office. You know not to speak lies, but you also know how to omit important truths, and how to induce false conclusions. Silence is one of your most effective tools, if maintained long enough, at the right time. Answer despairing challenges by suggesting that other people are not “working together” to help all of us to “move forward”, leaving “nobody falling behind”. EMPIRE-BUILDER? If you are any or all of the above, then you will attract sycophantic cronies, within and outside of government. You might become a macro-ruler within and outside of government. Businesses will negotiate with you, before dealing with Council or its agencies. If you leave Council, you might retire into a pre-built career, that you were paid from taxes to develop. GREEDY? Not all ambition is greedy. Not all greed is for money only. See other forms, above. But, someone we know only as “Anonymous” said, “Men want more, less than they want more than other men.”

Jay Jay the Wonder Dog

September 13, 2013

By ROBERT JAMES. The team at Your Ward News are proud owners and lovers of a 12-year old bull terrier whom well over three years ago was diagnosed with a large cancerous tumor on his head with only six months at the most to live. Without surgery or chemo he is still alive and happy today, enjoying life well past the expectations of even healthy bull terriers. When veterinarians encountered Jay Jay’s case of canine cancer, our refusal to provide chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery lead to an immediate diagnosis of a painful death. In a last ditch effort to profit, veterinarians offered a more affordable solution for our dog, something they inadequately called “euthanasia”. The answer is to enhance the quality of life for our best friends, not their veterinarians. Cancer is the leading cause of death among dogs, with 45% of dogs that reach 10 years of age or older dying of cancer. Veterinary oncology deals with cancer “research” and “treatment options” of animals. There is no profitable cure for cancer. The costly techniques used to “treat” canine cancer have several adverse effects that lower the quality of life and in-effect poison our pets. Chemotherapeutic and radioactive techniques destroy the immune system to critically low levels, which can result in fatal infections. The life energy is literally sucked out due to these “treatments”, leaving our dogs in an almost catatonic fatigue. Not to mention bleeding, gastrointestinal distress, hair loss, organ failure, swelling, and cognitive decline are also common long-term effects. Yet Jay Jay has always been a fighter, even when it came to the Ontario Provincial Government. As a friendly bull terrier that has never harmed any person or another dog, moronic bureaucrats have been trying to murder him since day one. Under Bill 132 Jay Jay is automatically considered a violently aggressive spawn of Satan, with an unquenchable lust for human blood. The onus of proof that a dog is not a pit bull lies with the owner of the dog. So even with a grandfather clause all it takes is one look from the needle happy “humane society” to order his death. This is ethnic cleansing, canine style! To add vinegar to the wound, owners of any dog that even resembles a pit bull will have to face a $10,000 fine and six months in jail after their loved one is barbarically slaughtered by extermination camp cronies. Just over a month ago Jay Jay had another good fight left in him. His health considerably degraded, and we were forced to once again consider putting him down. Jay Jay lost most of his muscle mass, bone structure, and developed a major infection leading to a massive bloating of his stomach. He was unable to walk, move, urinate or defecate. What is more his brain cancer spread to all over his body, leading to squamous-cell carcinoma. After contacting several local veterinarians to inquire about the dirty dead, they were more then happy to finally get the opportunity profiteer on Jay Jay’s medical condition. The quote came back as $350.00 to “euthanize” our poor friend. That did not include cremation, which they upsold for an additional $350.00. Yet the disgusting slime bucket vets did not stop there. Once they thought they had a sale the bastards demanded an additional $400.00 just to get the ashes back. That was a deal breaker. We decided to let mother nature take it’s course, and we are glad of that decision because Jay Jay also decided to tell the Reaper to bugger off! With the same love, care, compassion and herbal remedies that kept Jay Jay fighting for this long gave him the courage and fortitude for this battle. Just two weeks after we said NO to the veterinary industry, Jay Jay came back to life – and now has no problems going for walks, getting up the stairs, doing his business and raising a little hell.

CRY ME A RIVER!

September 13, 2013

CRY ME A RIVER! By ROBERT JAMES Cry baby Shelley Carroll cried baby tears after losing a debate with Councillor Mike del Grande. The tears poured out like rain as council was forced to consider a motion by Shelley Carroll’s bosom buddy Councillor Janet Davis on ways to waste over $60-million in your tax dollar surpluses. Shelley Carroll ranted in defense of Janet Davis, when you have the money – spend; when you don’t – tax. Always sing the Blues! Mr. del Grande knows that it is the job of the budget chief, Councillor Frank di Giorgio and his committee, to decide council’s priorities, not the job of individual members of City Council. Shelley Carroll, whose sits beside Mr. del Grande was ordered to “sit down.” Shelley Carroll and the other NDPers frequently interrupt the intelligent councillors who have the floor. Knowing she would never win in a fair debate, Shelley Carroll begged to get the morning off without a note from mommy or daddy. “I just want to get out of here. I want to find my bag so I can leave” she said, crying. The speaker then banged her gavel and adjourned the council meeting. Any other job when an employee leaves early, that’s time off their paycheque. With the NDP we are still paying their salaries for an extra long lunch break. “They pull that kind of shit all the time.” Councillor Frank di Giorgio noted in reference to the NDP’s tactic of rambling over any dissenting members of City Council. “You too, Councillor Vaughan, you’re one of the other ones” Mr. del Grande mentioned by name. Our local socialist councillors take tips from Piers Morgan, not to win an argument – but to silence dissent.
