Here’s a New Years Resolution for this lame duck Liberal leadership at Queen’s Park: Shut your pie holes and stay physically away from all Ontario Citizens until an election has been called!
Has Kathleen Wynne and company lost their collective minds and hired an over-medicated Strategy Company to make them “appear” they are functional and worth electing by scripting some of the dumbest and perverse antics ever witnessed by Government?
“Use the Ice Storm to your advantage to appear pro-active in helping folks out of a tough spot” is probably their directive but in practice the methods of this so-called activism is almost laughable, if it wasn’t so serious!
Hand out Food Gift Cards to those who lost their food supplies with loss of electricity is a rather nice gesture, but it only works if the ones directing this effort really KNOW how many people are affected!
Obviously this backfired big time. In fact what has taken place is more of an insult than a nice gesture!
What else can one expect from a group of politicians who are so corrupted in their own visions of Ontario that they can’t even count the number of folks who have suffered through one of the worst disasters ever to hit Southern Ontario!

TORONTO – Several hundred people who lost power during the ice storm lined up for food gift cards Tuesday at a Scarborough government office but were turned away.
Dan Carthew was one of them. He arrived at the Golden Mile Employment and Social Services office at Eglinton and Pharmacy Aves. at 10:30 a.m. — two hours after doors opened —and was given a business card for the centre and told to come back Thursday because they had run out of the 100 cards they had.
“I was surprised they ran out so fast,” said Carthew, 52. “There’s no guarantee. There’s nothing to be happy about – it wasn’t a pleasant drive here. I don’t think I’m going to get any money.”
Another man, who is on disability and identified himself as Ron, said he walked 45 minutes from Dawes Rd. and Danforth Ave. to get to the centre only to find out there was no cards available.
“It was packed here, people were screaming and they had to call the police,” he said. “It went crazy. If I would’ve know it was this bad, I wouldn’t have come up here.”
Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly said the provincial program was quickly rolled out and in doing this, “you don’t dot all the Is and cross all the Ts.”
