Christmas Dreaming

Christmas Eve seemed endless
as I lay awake in bed
listening for the reindeer
and the bells on Santa’s sled,
Christmas is a magic time
when hearts are young and gay.
Oh, To be a child again for one
more Christmas Day

Christmas Hearts

Christmas bustle everywhere
glittering tinsel in the malls
carolers strolling in the dusk
holly-wreaths bedeck the halls.
Yuletide smells and jingle bells
Hark! The herald angels sing
and little children wondering
what jolly old St. Nick will bring.
We love the season of good cheer
and sadly watch when it departs
but yuletide joy can last all year
by keeping Christmas in our hearts.

Why not visit the enlarged Regional Building? It is indeed special!! Even the cafeteria is too large; tables only occupy part of this huge room.

We need a majority Conservative government to survive

While GM, Ford and Chrysler are reeling from the recession,and laying off hundreds of their employees,  European, and Asian auto manufacturers are looking at Canada and the U.S to open new auto plants. The big three American auto builders cannot possibly compete with the foreign auto makers.

What Crisis?

There’s so much feigned fury being displayed by all our political leaders, and so much hand-wringing by so many “ordinary” citizens over the shenanigans in Ottawa that foreigners must think that Canada has suddenly turned into one of those hapless failed states where the military is about to oust the whole sorry crew that imagine themselves as leaders of this great Dominion.

Verily a Cabal of Quebeckers against a lone Ontarian

The plot by the Liberal Party under Stephane Dion, the Bloc Quebecois under Gilles Duceppe and the New Democratic Party under Jack Layton TO DFEAT THE Conservative government of Stephen Harper has proven to Canadians that their first loyalty is NOT to CANADA, but to their personal advancement and that alone. Because today these three parties have made it abundantly clear that it was the removal of political subsidy by the Conservative government that made them very angry enough to unite and plot to bring down the Conservative government, everything else took a second place to the loss of their subsidy.

Toronto Maple Leafs Win Stanley Cup

imageSent in by a reader….

Canada was stunned Monday when it was announced that The Stanley Cup will be awarded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, possibly as early as December 6th. The cup will be stripped from from 2008 playoff champions the Detroit Red Wings and be awarded to the Leafs, who didn’t even make the playoffs.

How is this possible, Canadians ask? Well, the Leafs have formed a coalition with eastern conference semi-finalists the Montreal Canadians, and conference quarter finalists the Ottawa Senators, now outnumbering the Red Wings. According to current Leaf coach Ron Wilson “the Red Wings have lost the confidence of the league and should hand the cup over immediately to our coalition”.

We thank you Governor General

After consulting with the best constitutional experts and no doubt receiving an avalanche of email by concerned Canadians over the naive, hastily conceived and potentially disastrous coalition government of Liberals, NDP and the Bloc Governor General Michaelle Jean followed the Prime Minister’s advice and made a decision that may well have saved this nation.

Do we really want ‘banana republic"status?

Just when Canadians thought they were through yet another federal election and had democratically elected the government of their choice an irresponsible and power mad opposition (a good description would be Junta) come up with a suprise Christmas present to oust the Conservatives and undemocratically seize power.

How did it happen and what now?

As the magnitude of the current crisis in Ottawa continues to sink in with Canadians two main questions must be answered. How is it that a democratically elected Prime Minister and government given a significant increase in seats (127 to 143) less than two months after being voted in by the people could be replaced with an unelected, ill-conceived and potentially disastrous coalition headed up by Stephen Dion the man rejected by the Canadian people, his own province and his own party? Astonishing is far to weak a word to describe this development.

Do not be naïve enough to still believe that our elected representatives actually represent the will of the people.  This latest political fiasco is nothing more than a smoke screen, a shell game, to cover up what is really going on in Ottawa, or maybe what is not going on, and it’s not in your or my best interests.

Not my country anymore

My country is no longer mine.  A political party that I can’t even vote for HOLDS THE BALANCE OF POWER for my country. A political party that does not want to be in my country HOLDS THE BALANCE OF POWER.
