Who’s Running this Province? by Tom Black

Published May 1, 2015

Tom BlackHello Folks,

Many people today don’t take time to inform themselves about who is running their province or country and in many cases, do not think it is worthwhile to go to the polls and vote on Election Day. History has taught us over and over, that when people don’t participate and stay informed, that the resulting government often takes that country or province in disastrous directions.

Ontario has been in the throes of voter apathy now for the last four elections, driven by two opposition parties that couldn’t come up with anything in their platforms to attract voters in numbers large enough to take down an extremely corrupt government. Despite the E-Health scandal, the gas plant relocation fiasco and the Green Energy Act that wasted billions of taxpayers money, the Liberal government sailed through with a majority win.

Even when Premier Wynne admitted on live TV, a few minutes into the June 3, 2014 election debate -–
“I know that people are still angry, you have a right to be angry because – because – there was – there was a breach of trust between the government and the people of the province…”, that for political gain, during the gas plant debacle, public money was used, nobody stepped up to charge her and her government with this serious crime. In Ottawa, this week, a police officer is on trial for ‘criminal breach of trust’, proving the seriousness of this crime, but NO media has ever put any pressure on the premier for her admission of guilt. You can go online and listen for yourself to that part of the debate http://tvo.org/video/204510/2014-ontario-leaders-debate

The landowners would like to point you to our letters that we are sending to the OPP, the RCMP, and the Lieutenant Governor and hope that you will take part by printing these form letters and if you agree with us, then fill in your name and put it in an envelope with a stamp and send your demand that the police do their job and charge all the people who were involved in this ‘breach of trust’.

Thank you.
Tom Black

    I think you’re right — we need to vote to elect the government we want.
    But I think the problem is much larger than that. Both Provincially and Federally our MPs, of all parties, are in election mode from the moment they get elected until the moment they have to face the electorate again. Amid all this posturing and spin, nobody is minding the store!
    Nobody in cabinet sees a problem — like property rights or bureaucrats abusing their powers — and delegates an MP to look into the problem and propose a solution. Similarly, no back-bencher takes it upon him/herself to fix a problem. With a few notable exceptions, they are all too busy polishing their images and mindlessly spouting the party line.
    Meanwhile, the bureaucrats run wild — they are the people really running the province and no politician is keeping them in check.

    The lack of transparency that stems from the ongoing conniving antics of politicians and bureaucrats is the main reason for the growing public skepticism and distrust of the political system at large. Indeed, the electorate is getting fed up with the incessant manipulation of the truth and tyrannous strong-arm dictates that fail to respect the integral rights of individual taxpayers, and parents.

    You are absolutely right, they should be charged as any private lay citizen would be charged, and there would be no hesitation. These are Criminal Code Charges and if the OPP, won’t honour their sworn oath, the Federal Justice Minister has a responsibility here.
    But good luck, the Provinces of Ontario , Alberta and B.C. are openly discriminating against senior drivers, and in a Conflict of Interest, and I cannot get the Provinces or the Federal Government to do their sworn duty. So much for democracy.
