Why the Environment should be a minor issue in Ontario

People can’t turn on a TV without seeing David Suzuki’s commercials, asking Millennials to tell their parents that we need to protect the environment, with media outlets saying we need to pay carbon taxes to ensure we do protect the planet. Afterall, humanity is a plague on the Earth, and we need to be more mindful of our impact. I’ve always thought, it can’t be as bad as people who are pushing this narrative. It’s important to get our facts straight when we tackle these issues. Today, I was reminded about the ‘carbongeddon’ again, in an article from the Globe and Mail, because Ontario has the second highest carbon usage in Canada. So, I want to go through the numbers with the world, to bring context that the article so clearly lacked.

From – Ontario election guide: What you need to know before you vote

Background: Ontario emits more greenhouse gases than any province except oil-producing Alberta, and under Ms. Wynne’s government, the province took major steps to change that. In 2015, the province committed to a cap-and-trade system with Quebec and California and vowed to cut emissions to 37 per cent below 1990 levels by 2030. Months later, the newly elected Trudeau government signed on to ambitious reduction targets at the Paris climate conference, but getting provincial premiers to sign on to a national carbon-pricing plan was difficult: Saskatchewan, in particular, was strongly opposed to new taxes on carbon. After years of political deadlock, the federal government announced a national framework last year and legislation this past January, essentially vowing that any province without its suitable carbon-pricing scheme would have one imposed on it in 2019.

Let’s talk about this region to region, shall we?

The Atlantic provinces have about 2.3 million people living in them, and they produce 43.5 megatonnes of Carbon Dioxide every single year. Every million people in the Atlantic provinces produces about 18 megatonnes of carbon per year. In Ontario, every million people produce about 11 megatonnes of carbon per year, which is about 60 percent of what they use.

Let’s compare Saskatchewan and Manitoba, now. They produce 97.2 million tonnes of carbon every single year, for 2.43 million population, or precisely 40 megatonnes per million people. In comparison, Ontario produces about 28 percent of what those two provinces produce per million people.

This article says that Ontario is the biggest offender when it comes to Carbon, only falling short of Alberta, which is entirely unfair. They produce 262.9 megatonnes of carbon dioxide with 4.3 million people, which is 61.1 megatonnes per million people. Ontario, in comparison, would be 18 percent of what Alberta produces.

Ontario is one of the three strongest provinces in the reductions of Carbon Dioxide. Quebec is the best province, producing only 9.17 megatonnes per million people, Ontario being 11.33 megatonnes per million people, and BC being 12.41 megatonnes per million people.

We’re doing fantastic. In every way, Ontario finds new and innovative ways to reduce our carbon footprint. But both Kathleen Wynne and Justin Trudeau wants to raise our already high energy rates in high gasoline prices and high hydro prices with a Carbon Tax. IMO because of the math, I think Ontario shouldn’t be forced to implement a Carbon Tax at all; we’re doing our part. Put the Carbon Tax on the Atlantic provinces and the Prairie provinces, but not on Ontario, or Quebec and BC.

With that, who has put forth an idea that best fits my opinion and the Math.

  • Liberals: In April, the Liberals announced $1.7-billion over three years to give Ontarians rebates and programs to retrofit their homes for energy efficiency.
  • NDP: An NDP government would use at least 25 per cent of the cap-and-trade system’s revenue to help northern, rural and low-income Ontarians adapt to a lower-carbon lifestyle, and use $50-million to a home-efficiency retrofit program.
  • PCs: Mr. Ford wants to repeal cap-and-trade and oppose the federally mandated minimum price on emissions.

I love this, Kathleen Wynne would spend Tax Payer’s money to reduce electricity and carbon footprint. But Ontario already uses 25% less electricity now than we did in the 1990s, and we produce about 10% less carbon dioxide than we in the 1990s, at least according to Environment Canada. With how much far we are ahead, shouldn’t we get a break?

The NDP says it would use less money to help retrofit homes than the Liberals, because how much is $50 million when you compare it to millions of households. Oh, I can buy a cocking gun to reduce heating costs in the winter!

Doug Ford is the only person I can think of that is talking my language. Ontario is doing its part as of right now. So we shouldn’t be punished more for being one of the best provinces in Canada for both electricity use and carbon dioxide production.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Making Canada Great Again

Recently, I’ve been really evaluating my life, as any INTJ usually does. Is how I am living my life work? I’ve been thinking, meditating and praying about this lately, and I’ve decided there are many things that I need to change in my life right now. One, I never felt like I was making a difference in the world with the job I was working at. Yes, packaging meat and shipping it off does help people, but when you are not using your God given gifts to help people, you feel like you’re not doing what you can.

So, I kept on thinking about what I am good at. On a daily basis, I’m reading news, evaluating and analyzing it, and I share it as memes or blogs with the entire world. That’s pretty much my life, and I love doing it and I’m good at it as well.

I wanted to think about how to gain enough exposure that I can make a real difference in Canada, my home country. It started with Turn Right Toronto One of the things I started to think about is joining an online community. While there are some fantastic online communities for right-winged individuals, like the New Right Network, these communities are not Canadian centric.

So, I decided I needed to create something, and make my voice known. I may love my anonymity, being Trolly McPatriarchy, but it’s time to take a bold step forward, and while I love blogging, I want to reach a larger audience, so I’ve decided to create a new YouTube Channel, and Make Canada Great Again.

https://youtu.be/oH5kzbFLqao

You can follow me on Twitter at Make Canada Great Again.

I’m going to build up a network for the silent majority in Canada, who don’t want the leftist policies divide Canada more and more. Yes, I am still going to work on Trolly stuff, and my book, but It’s time for me to come out from the shadows and fight for Canada.

The silent majority in Canada

In the final days of the 2016 American Presidential election, Michael Moore gave a speech, telling his audience, Donald Trump will win the election. He talked about Joe Blow, Steve Blow and every other blow will walk up to the voting booth and blow up the system that has hurt them for the past few decades. They were throwing a human Molotov cocktail into the mainstream media and political elites world that would bring their world down, and help the average everyday American. Michael Moore saw the silent majority who wanted a hand grenade to destroy everything that was keeping them down – he was right, to his dismay. There were a silent majority that wanted to put America first. Today, in Ontario, we have a similar legacy. A legacy that has been dragging our province down, the liberal legacy. I could go on about hydro prices, making protests around abortion clinics illegal, putting my province into massive debt and so many things, but I don’t want to.

We all know the reasons why Wynne needs to go. In my first story after the leadership debate, I was worried about something. According to a City News story, 44.7 percent of Millennials who watched the debate said they wanted to vote for the Liberals. Doug Ford only had 17.8 percent of their votes. That’s a significant hurdle when I thought about it. How do you convince an entire generation to change their minds, when they don’t seem to want to see the other side. Then I learned something on the Agenda with Steve Paikin. Erin Kelly, the president of Advanced Symbolics inc who designed an AI named Poli that goes out and survey’s the online world to predict how people will vote in the coming elections. Poli was accurate enough to predict President’s Trump’s victory in the 2016 election, as well as the Brexit outcome. That should give you pause, because it is an accurate measure of tracking politics, kind of like a modern day Harry Seldon, viewing patterns in behaviour to predict what will happen during specific events or time periods. Poli is saying that the Millennial vote is going to Doug Ford, which surprised Steve Paikin.

So, how could the polls that were taken just after the City News debate be so wrong, that young people are supporting Kathleen Wynne and so few would be willing to back Doug Ford? My first thought, having watched City News for the longest time now, it’s social justice on steroids news. Anything with a social justice cause in it, they were covering it. They’ve even had Chanty “Big Red” Binks on a broadcast once. . .

So, that’s number one reason. The people watching are more likely going to be Big Red, and they’ve already made up their minds that Ford is an evil scumbag that doesn’t deserve people’s votes. Hence, why some people who were watching the debate wondered how Doug Ford got so many votes in the CityNews polls. They’ve got a considerable bias because CityNews is very left winged.

Second, let’s talk about what Erin spoke about in her interview. People will lie to pollsters. In the American Election, you didn’t want to say you were a Trump supporter, because of all the backlash it caused. So people stayed silent and waited for the voting day to ensure they got the president they wanted. We might have a millennial vote who wishes to remain anonymous, who will vote for the change they want. When they look at Wynne and Horwath, they only see the same party, one just slightly more left-winged than the other, and see left-winged politics turning sour all the time. They know that left-leaning governments are arresting and convicting people of ‘hate crimes’ for putting a joke on the Internet. So, they want to change the status quo, because they know the status quo has become a form of tyranny. It’s time for Ontario residents of all ages to throw our human Molotov Cocktail and destroy the bullshit that is happening across the globe. We can think globally, destroying these authoritarians all across the world, and act locally by voting for the best person to bring down these elites.

When I heard Erin say that young people have chosen change over bribes, oops I mean social programs, I was delighted. They want to raise a little hell.

Thanks for reading and have a great day guys!

Andrea Horwath a change for the worse in Ontario

While most of the of the media coverage in Ontario for the provincial election centres on Doug Ford, the front-runner, and Kathleen Wynne, a politician who has been described as the living dead by pundits, I have found very little regarding Andrea Horwath, which I find interesting. Most people don’t understand this is a three-party race, and ignoring Horwath can provide her with the opportunity to convince left-leaning people to vote strategically, voting for her government, because it is ‘change for the better’. Today, I’m going to go over their platform and dissect it for my fellow conservatives.

The first platform piece I want to comment on is the NDP’s ideas regarding mental health and addictions. Andrea Horwath must be channelling the little conservative in her because she says she wants to make one ministry that will focus on mental health and addiction issues in Ontario. Instead of 11 departments mismanaging this significant portfolio, almost everybody, in my estimation, is affected by mental health and addictions issues, whether it is directly or through a loved one. I can’t help applaud her, because she found an inefficiency that Doug Ford can use to save money for Ontario taxpayers. Can you imagine all the government waste on Mental Health when that many ministries are involved in it? How many millions are being misspent because the left hand doesn’t know what right hand is doing? I really recommend that Doug Ford steal this idea, because it is fantastic.

The prominent promise on the NDP website is repurchasing Hydro One to lower hydro prices, a quaint fairy tale. First, it would cost the Ontario Tax Payer $10s Billion. Ontario is already in debt due to Hydro One, thanks to Wynne’s attempt to lower prices, to the price tag of $39.4 billion. That means Ontario residents can expect their Hydro Bills to go up to an estimated $215/m by 2028, which is about double what I pay right now. What we pay right now is double what people spent in the 1990s, lol. And you’d figure we’re using twice as much in energy this year, compared to 1990s for those high prices. We’re using 25% less now than in the 1990s, so we’re not paying twice the amount, we’re paying 250 percent more than in the 1990s. But we need to protect the environment, amirite guys? So, how can Andrea Horwath do what she plans, repurchasing Hydro One to lower prices, when increasing the debt of Hydro One will only raise prices down the road?

I asked Andrea that on twitter, but she and her staff have not responded. Way to go, respect for the media. I guess she doesn’t respect freedom of the press.

Of course, there is her very socialist efforts of bringing universal pharmacare and dental coverage for all Canadians. In this effort, Andrea’s NDP will make 125 essential drugs covered for all Ontario residents, and she will expand that to universal pharmacare at a later date. Well, this sounds good, let me tell you the reality. As a person who has never been covered by anything but my Fiancee’s dental and drug coverage through ODSP, this isn’t talking about much. There are lists of approved drugs that she can get, and procedures we can get. For instance, the birth control that ODSP passed her for sent her hormones into such unbalance, she was having her period every other week. Yes, every other week. I guess that will ensure she doesn’t get pregnant! The one she finds works well for her costs us out of pocket by the total of $83 every three months. I’d expect that the people under the 125 system will probably also find this won’t help them as much as the NDP is saying.

But to universally cover all drugs, it would cost Ontario over $7 billion ($2.5 in the medicines not already included, and $4.7 billion for the drugs being covered by the province already). According to the NDP, full coverage would be just under 7 percent of the yearly budget, while the severely limited coverage would be only $475 million, a ‘band-aid’ fix which is why it is better for the free market to find a better solution than the one she is advising. I’ve stated before; most people don’t know that they can go to Ontario Works and ask them for help, if they are working, but cannot afford coverage. Ontario works would put them on their system, until such day they get coverage from work, because they don’t want people to quit their jobs to get coverage. Problem solved, I guess. This also includes dental as well, so the ‘uninsured’ people in Ontario should learn how the system works and use it to get the best supports available to them.

Looking at the rest of her proposals, it seems she wants to send Ontario up shits creek without a paddle. Converting student loans into grants instead – with the over 800,000 Ontario students, and the average OSAP loan being around $9,000 for individuals, that is $7.2 billion per year. Yes, you heard me right, $7.2 billion or more, because I’m sure there are plenty of people who are in relationships who get OSAP loans as well – and couples get more money, especially if there are children involved. So we could see a $10 billion price tag on this, and who pays for that, you guessed it, the Ontario taxpayer. Nothing is free. And what if everybody wanted to go to post-secondary school, wouldn’t that make it even more of a burden.

Horwath’s dedication to socialism is almost commendable. At least she lays it all out of the table. She wants to help all of Ontario, but in the game of negotiation, you might want to start with these proposals, but inevitably reality must set in. Nobody would want to spend the $10s of billions of dollars for each one of her recommendations when each program will eventually cost the taxpayers billions when fully implemented. Where is Andrea Horwath going to raise this money for these initiatives?

Andrea’s solution, being the little socialist she is, tax the rich. It’s funny; she states the reason why she’s putting up the universal pharmacare and dental care stuff is jobs giving benefits are getting hard to come by in today’s Ontario. Part of that is forcing companies to pay a $14/h minimum wage and not giving them tax breaks to pay for that wage. It isn’t like paying people more will lead to more taxes anyway, so give a little room for the top to give the bottom more. Oh, btw, if you thought I’m advocating taxing the poor more, I am not – if you are paying people $3 thousand more per year (average increase) than you are going to get more in taxes. The best way to help the little guy is to give tax breaks to the rich.

While I never really discuss the NDP here in Ontario, because they are an outlier, they’re more of a problem in BC and other places, Horwath was either first or second in the leadership polls after the first debate. The leftist media is really behind her. She might just sneak in to win the election by allowing Doug Ford and Kathleen Wynne to duke it out while she stays visible and offering her ‘change for the better’ platform which will harm Ontario in the long run.

I’m putting this out to centralist liberals. Andrea Horwath is not going to help Ontario. Her well-meaning platform promises would cripple Ontario’s economy and put us in several billion dollars more in debt, and she would tax the top 1 percent more to ‘enact’ things, making it harder to operate a business in Ontario. When I think of the ongoing promises, like universal pharmacare (about $7 billion), Universal Dental Care (lets match pharmacare – $7 billion), and the $10 billion for post-secondary schools in grants per year, it would cost a minimum $24 billion/year. To pay for that, you can’t just tax the rich and corporations just one or two percent, it is more like 10 percent, and then how are they going to pay for the $15/h minimum wage in 2019, which Horwath will implement? It’s ludicrous, so I invite you to come over to vote for Doug Ford.

Wynne ruined Ontario, and voting Andrea Horwath is even worst. She’s change alright, change for the worse.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

My thoughts on the First Leadership Debate in Ontario

It was a few days ago when I wrote a blog about my thoughts on the next Ontario election, and while I focused on Doug Ford and Kathleen Wynne, the people of the hour. I didn’t go into everything I could have because I never even mentioned Andrea Horwath, the leader of the NDP, or Mike Schreiner, the leader of the Green Party. Last night, the first debate was taking place between the leaders of the political leaders in Ontario, so I tuned in to CityNews around 5:30, who was hosting the match. The first thing I saw was a bunch of ‘green’ fanatics with tape on their mouths, protesting the fact Mr. Schreiner wasn’t allowed a place in the debate. Rules are rules, so if your party doesn’t have a delegate in every single riding in Ontario, you can’t say you represent Ontario. At 6:10, the debate started. If you want to see my thoughts on it, as I was watching, you can go here.

The debate was fascinating to watch. Mainly, we had the fear mongering from both Andrea Horwath and Kathleen Wynne, raising the spectre of ‘Doug Ford is going to fire people’ to save the $6 billion, when Doug Ford says he’s going to find efficiencies to lower the taxpayer burden. I’ve never been one to respond to fear tactics. I’d rather take a step back, learn and come up with a strategy to deal with things. I don’t buy any of the fear mongering of Andrea Horwath or Kathleen Wynne, who want to create a narrative in which we have the choice between ‘care or cut’. I went over many of the reasons why Kathleen Wynne can’t be trusted. Unfortunately, it doesn’t mean anything for Doug Ford, because the votes will switch from Wynne to Horwath.

As one pundit said, Kathleen Wynne looked like the living dead.

So, we now know this contest for who will lead Ontario will be between Doug Ford and Andrea Horwath. Even City News considers Doug Ford the winner, but Millennials couldn’t care less. It shows that an entire generation doesn’t want to listen to what the other side says. Kinda like this person. They couldn’t even believe people were voting for Doug Ford in the poll. The same generation who probably bought that Hillary Clinton had a 98% of winning and Trump is colluding with the Russians, though not one piece of evidence has been seen in over a year and a half. It means that Andrea Horwath will have a dedicated voting block who will vote for her, even if her policies are complete and utter nonsense. Has nobody told her that socialism doesn’t work yet?

She promises all kinds of free things, from free prescriptions for everybody, buying back Ontario Hydro to lower prices, giving free dental care and so many other things. This sounds ‘good’ doesn’t it, but here’s the reality. First, if you make prescriptions and dental care for free, people will lose their jobs. Not the pharmacists or the dentists, but extended coverage companies that help people pay for those expenses, like Manulife financial. Second, as I was going through the job program that got me my last job, a representative from Ontario Works said they would pay for benefits for anybody who was working who didn’t have benefits. They didn’t want people to quit their jobs to get the services for drugs and other benefits, so anybody in Ontario who has a job who doesn’t have benefits, you can go to your local Ontario Works office and ask for benefits there, to cover these things that Andrea Horwath is promising to everybody. I don’t like the idea of promising the world that would eventually lead to people losing their jobs.

On the buying back of Hydro One to make it public. While I do usually extol the virtues of privatisation because competition lowers prices, how do you do that with hydro? The Ontario government already owns all the plants, not some private company. So, no real competition is going to happen. But it would take billions of dollars to buy back Hydro One. It’s not like Ontario residents are going to foot a $39.4 billion bill for what Wynne has done to ‘reduce electricity prices’, Horwath is going to add onto it by trying to repurchase Hydro One. How much debt needs to be added to us to ‘make Ontario right’. This kind of oxymoron shit doesn’t make sense. For Ontario residents, who use less electricity now than in 1990, to pay less for electricity the government has to pack on the debt that Ontario residents will have to pay back. Andrea, that doesn’t make sense, and if it doesn’t make sense than it can’t be the truth.

On the other hand, we have Doug Ford who did win the debate. He remained calm, cool and collected. His message was loud and clear; I want to work with communities and agencies so that we can come up with the best possible services available. He said he was going to find efficiencies to lower government spending without sacrificing jobs, probably looking to modernising many different services to make it work. Like, why do agencies like Ontario Works and ODSP income forms have to be on paper, when putting them online would be more accessible with everything from those offices to MacDonald having free Wi-fi or Internet. Imagine the millions that could be saved in inefficiencies through buying paper and sending things through the mail if we did that – setup forms and accounts online to make things easier for Ontario residents to inform those agencies of their income.

Or how about the $650,000 Marijuana logo, which is so plain looking, a high school student could have designed it for free. $1 Billion of waste by cancelling gas plants. Why we’re even doing anything like building plants when we’re using 25% less electricity today than we did in the 1990s. I’d just work on maintaining what we already have, but not building new power plants at all.

And sorry, Andrea Horwath said she is going to tax people who flip properties when they are providing an essential service for the community by improving properties, which is stupid. Most likely, the reason the property prices in Toronto and other places in Canada like Vancouver are going up so quickly is the foreign buyers like the Chinese buying up property here. They don’t live here, but buy property here, increasing the demand and the prices. It has nothing to do with people improving properties and helping their communities.

I’m still saying Doug Ford is the man to lead Ontario. We can’t fall for the fear mongering of Andrea Horwath and Kathleen Wynne, saying ‘Thousands of jobs will be cut’. Where’s the evidence of this? I see a lot of conjecture, but nothing concrete. Like I said about Trump, I will renounce him once he starts rounding up Mexicans into death camps – which hasn’t materialised yet. I’ll renounce Doug Ford when he starts cutting jobs. If I don’t see it, I will not acknowledge their hissy fit rants.

Which is something they probably knew already? There is a solid block of people who will vote Doug Ford because they see him as someone who will get things done. So, the the attacks on Doug Ford for supporting Tanya Granic Allan is already coming. Condemning her for saying she wished her native Croatia would not implement the very same Soviet Union ideas they dropped when the iron curtain fell – calling them Homophobic. I was talking to one of the breeders of my families new dog, and I made a statement. People thought the Cold War stopped in the 1990s when a wall fell, but now we are still fighting against the communist menace again. It’s like in the 1990s, the communists faked their death, making us relax, so they could infect a whole generation of youth who are so socialist, they’re ready to revolt at a moment’s notice. Like I said, 80% of millennials would vote for Kathleen Wynne or Andrea Horwath.

Yuri Bezemenov warned us, and we didn’t listen. Our nation, every nation has to tip-toe around these issues now. Hell, I watched Steve Paikin apologise for laughing at an indigenous man’s joke about ‘colonialism’, asking if it were okay, only for Bob Joseph to say, this is a ‘safe space’. Why does Steve or anybody else have to be so careful with our language? Here’s the reason – if we don’t, we get shouted down as racist, sexist and homophobic. Take Doug Ford little lapse in saying Kathleen Wynne had a nice smile, just before he asked her when she lost her way?

To many, it was a sexist example of patriarchy. Take this fine young gentleman.

Which brings me to the next smear campaign against Doug Ford, Doug Ford must be evil because white supremacists say they’re voting Doug Ford. Nobody controls who votes for them. If Kathleen Wynne did her job, there wouldn’t be any White Nationalists, as she worked to make Ontario the best province in Canada, which it indeed hasn’t been. If people were happy with your performance than nobody would listen to white supremacists, and you would keep your job. You messed up, and we’re not going to take it anymore.

It’s time to realize, we are seriously in a culture war and we need people to stand up against it and fight back. Every blog counts. Every meme counts. Every video counts. We need to help people realise the conditioning they have had to always side with ‘leftism’ so they can open the door and walk right through and think independently, and the debate last night shows that more than ever.

Thanks for reading and have an excellent day guys.
