Wouldn’t you know it, no sooner had I finished a commentary ripping Ontario’s new sex-ed curriculum, Premier McGuinty pulls the plug on it. So here I go, take two. But don’t think for a second I’m going to praise the premier. Not a chance. That’s because his sudden about-face is more about politics than policy. Speaking of politics, I had to laugh when Conservative MP Chris Warkentin said former MP Rahim Jaffer was giving politicians a bad name. Sorry Mr. Warkentin, for never hearing of you before, but you must be seriously out of touch because it’s not possible to give politicians a worse name than they already have. And don’t you love the way the Conservatives have turned their back on Jaffer. Rahim. Rahim who? Never heard of him. You’ve heard of John Baird, of course. And Bob Chiarelli. I think it’s fair to say they’re not good friends. How uncomfortable they must be attending all those events together. It seems like every time I turn on the t-v news there they are, side-by-side, at this sod-turning or that. What do you say to someone you clearly can’t stand? What about Larry O’Brien? Is he going to run or what? Now he’s vowing to block the expansion of the Carp Road dump. What’s that all about? I don’t know. I also don’t know about that proposed bus deal the city has signed with New Flyer whose chairman is Captain Canada, Brian Tobin. Why the big hurry to sign the deal? And how do we know these new buses won’t be ‘ lemons ‘ too? I have my doubts, I really do.
