Hi people of SooToday!

If you'd like to do a good deed today, I'd really appreciate it if you could help my friend out.

If you have Facebook, all it takes is a 'like' and a 'comment' to vote for her in the ugly Christmas sweater competition she's trying to win. And trust me, it's a prize winning ugly sweater she's sporting!

Here is the link if you're feeling extra helpful today :)

Good morning everyone, can't say I like the weather much but after Christmas spring will come again. (slowly) Mallet I'll try this again slowly so maybe you get it. I am disgusted with what the Provincial Liberals under McGuinty did. They ran up a pile of debt for little reason. Now we get to Harper who has run up a much bigger pile of debt in spite of his and Flaherty's predictions. The difference is you get in a snit when I tell the truth about Harper and make all sorts of B.S. excuses for him while I agree with your comments about the past Provincial Liberals. I get it you are one of those neo-cons that wear your blinders and hold your nose. I wasn't that kind of a Conservative and bailed when Mulroney kept finding those cash stuffed envelopes. Mulroney left a pile of debt but nothing compared to this "Economist" who still brags about being the "strong hand on the economy" after selling our children and grandchildren's heritage to China. Get another cloths pin for your nose, you will be O.K. Have a great day all. rw ,Harper knew long before he left for South Africa that the Post Office mess had to come out so my comments stand.

Soowat, that's a very informative article on one of the ways the government squanders our money, interfering with the free market system that has worked well during my lifetime but is now under threat by increasing big government socialistic tendencies.

When a business is not competitive it should be allowed to fail. Big government should not be picking winners and losers. In that particular case the company took the subsidy and then closed the plant in favour of another.

There are always unintended consequences when the government gets involved. You no longer live in a free country by allowing government to get so involved in people's lives.

Several Posters on this site yesterday said that the Post Office cannot deliver mail to homes because of the costs involved.

I mentioned that many Seniors are unable to get to a Community Mail Box, especially in Winter weather like yesterday and some posters called those Seniors a Minority.

Let me tell you that Canada spends billions of dollars protecting Minority Rights so why not continue to give support to many Seniors who will have difficulty with Community Mail Boxes.

Our City has decided to only plow I sidewalk on many streets making it even more difficult to walk to a Community Box.

By the way, Seniors make up 30 % of our population.

There are many ways Canada Post could save money than cutting off home deliveries to those who already have it.

Fed Ex, Purolator and other deliverers are going to make a fortune if Canada Post cuts back on Services----meaning Canada Post will lose even more business.

Private deliverers will even pick up your Mail and deliver your Mail to your home after Canada Post cuts back.

Anybody else see the absolute absurdity in this...


From QMI Agency.

A six-year-old boy in Colorado was suspended from school for kissing a girl on the hand, and the school is calling it sexual harassment.

Hunter Yelton, a Grade 1 student, told KRDO radio the kiss happened during reading group.

"I leaned over and kissed her on the hand," he said.

Yelton was suspended from his school near Colorado Springs and accused of sexual harassment.

Yelton's mom, Jennifer Saunders, told the station her son is now asking her "what is sex, mommy?"

A school board official told KRDO Yelton's actions fit the description of sexual harassment, which includes unwanted touching.

"Our main interest in this is having the behaviour stop because the story is not just about the student that was disciplined, it is also about the student receiving the unwanted advances," Robin Goodly told CNN.

Saunders said the girl was "fine with it" because the children consider themselves boyfriend and girlfriend.

Yelton says he's sorry for doing something wrong.
Oldie Goldie 12/12/2013 9:16:18 AM Report

gcubed--you might be right about Purolator but E.Z. express and other Contractors will pick up the slack.
E.Z Express already has a Contract with Canada Post but they are a Private Contractor and would love to expand---and the will when and if Canada Post cuts back.

In my opinion, cutting off home mail delivery is an attempt to destroy the Postal Workers Union but giving out new Contracts to fill and empty more Community Boxes will not save money.

Locations have to be secured and new Boxes built and Installed on Concrete pads---More money spent !

By the way, Most Postal Contractors are friends and supporters of a Political Party, in my opinion.

The Severances to Senior Postal deliverers will be in the Billions and Canada Post knows that.

Those eligible for Pensions will draw from an already established Canada Post Pension Fund but many more will get severances costing Billions.
Wild Turkey 12/12/2013 9:30:59 AM Report

I did little bit of checking on the history of mail service.It is interesting to note that people paid $5.oo per half ounce to use "The Pony Express" when they wanted to get their mail to California in a hurry.The service went out of business after only 18 months because of the completion of telegraph lines.
Urban mail delivery was impacted in1876 by the invention of the telephone.
Canada Post has been severely hurt with the overwhelming popularity of the internet.Every day, more and more households are "getting on line".
We simply cannot continue to subsidize this "corporation" to the tune of One Billion Dollars a year.
The need is still there for letter mail delivery,and it will continue, but the level of service will continue to drop, and the price of postage will continue to rise until This "drain on our resources" reaches a break- even point.
It is lamentable, but inevitable.

From what I've heard, there will be no severences... all reductions will be done through attrition.

Perhaps Harper can pay for my slip at the community mail box.

I've been using the rural community box for over 20 years. We were told that we had to shovel the snow in front of the box because the person who puts the mail in the box will NOT be doing it.
With all the cold weather we get, I have replaced my lock 4-5 times as the tumblers get frozen and thawed numerous times causing damage. If you have no lock they will not deliver to your box.
Parcels have to be picked up at the postal outlet.
I fully understand that Canada Post is losing money; funny how Harper's Helpers announced this maneuver the day after the House rose for Christmas Break.

Grump...

Thank you for that very lucid answer, that Liberals are bad in the Province, but good at the Federal level. I am at a loss, though as to how to you separate the two, how do I tell a good Liberal from a bad one, does one have "P" stamped on their forehead and the other an "F". Would I not be a little hypercritical if I vote Conservative for the province and Liberal for the Country. How can I be sure that if I voted Liberal federally that they would not do the same as they have for the Province. Harper does not get a free ride with me, I have written many letters when I think he is doing something wrong, and not many saying he is doing right.. Quite simply put Liberalism does not work very well and falls over backwards to try and please everyone and that cannot be done, should the Liberals federally win the next election just watch your taxes go through the roof. I have watched this happen in two countries, the idea should be to "level up" not "level down", although that is so much easier to do. I would ask you one thing, how does raising the price of hydro, but then giving people 10% off make sense, I may be one of the swamp people, but at least I am not in the loony bin..

Hunter101: Don't know about Prouse staff. One time I did ask their parts department for a price on a replacement, small, plastic interior door handle part. They quoted me $80 (for one). I got two for $14 each from an American auto parts place, and delivered to Weirs for pick up.

Recently I asked the parts counter at another dealership for the price of a replacement radiator ($423.50). Installed it would be 3 hours @ $112 = another $336 ($759.50).

Went back online to my USA parts dealer and got 7 choices ranging from $86.68 to $224.89, all in Canadian dollars. All of these rads are made by parts manufacturers for the auto industry. And my mechanic installs for $99/hr.

And to whomever mentioned nice "trick" by Harper to announce cuts to postal service just before Christmas break. Not a trick. Standard government practice. Same as putting out a bad news news release late Friday afternoon, especially just before a long weekend.

OPG....and I'm so pissed after reading news accounts that compound the already pathetic and dismal announcements from that incompetent dolt Chiarelli, minister of energy. Here's a summary of life at OPG:

CEO is Tom Mitchell ($1.7 million/year + bonuses)
Chairman of the Board is Jake Epp ($150,000/year for a parttime job chairing a few meeting a year). You remember Jake. Federal PC cabinet minister. He once chaired a review committee of the old Ontario Hydro which concluded they were billions in debt because of "mismanagement".

OPG has 40 vice-presidents, who don't even have job titles, and a slew of 'senior' vice-presidents who do. Three VP's were fired yesterday by the premier, that leaves only 36 more to go (gotta keep one).

The accounting manager is paid $240,000 per year (about $100,000 more than for the same job in the private sector)

OPG has 8,000 employees on the sunshine list ($100,000+ per year).

OPG chips in $5 toward an employee's pension for every $1 paid by the employee. (It's 1-1 anywhere else in the public service).

Union staff at nuclear facilities get a minimum of $47/hour, including the janitorial staff who mop floors and empty wastebaskets.

One employee paid $80,000 to move 10 km from Toronto to Pickering, even though the job is in Toronto. Another employee was paid a $392,000 housing allowance and moving expense.

Don't think that OPG honchos or even a dipstick like Chiarelli are too concerned. Afterall, what kind of backlash ever comes from Canadians? They know we'll whine and complain, like I'm doing right now and that'll be the end of it, and we'll just keep paying for overpriced power generated by overpaid bureaucrats who so dutifully underperform in so capably incompetent fashion!!

Okay I understand the nightime and weekends but the use of peak in the winter period between the 7am to 11am and the 5pm to 7pm has me puzzled. Was the a bureaucratic slip or was it deliberate.

Why in the world - during an event like that - would this be important?
It's not.

The best yet.
The signing person for the deaf seen next to all of the dignitaries at the Mandela send off was found to be a fraud.
He got Obama's correct though...he was seen doing the bullshit sign.

Sorry Fly but Obama just showed the world how much class he has. I hear it's pretty frosty in his bedroom.
flyhawk25 12/12/2013 8:58:13 PM Report

steelhead...bullshit.
'I heard'...is just so stupid.Stick with what you know best. Whatever that is.
This is not newsworthy and just proves again how desperate you and the other gill breathers are to make a silly issue out of nothing.
You lack knowledge, wit and wisdom.
Now finish your cereal, wipe your chin and brush your tooth and go back to your video games.
Leave the commentary to the grownups.
steelworker 12/12/2013 9:02:53 PM Report

Sorry you feel like that. I guess nobody can stick it to the Great and Powerful O without risking the wrath of some lefty freak. I repeat-no class.

Shhh...just get your teddy bear and let the adults chat.
In the morning after your mum makes your gruel and you have bathy time you can have her read the news to you.
Sleep tight little moron.
