ALL THAT FUSS

All of this huffing and puffing over price hikes due to wage hikes is nothing short of socialist thinking. Why haven’t these people complained about the cost of their car going up after a wage hike for the auto workers? Why are items made in the West more expensive that the same items made in the Far East? The reason is the wage difference. I do not hear much complaining from the left when taxes go up to pay for the politicians’ self-granted wage hikes. Therefore, I have to ask why all the uproar over food servers’ wage hikes? It takes a lot of money to obtain, for example, a Tim Hortons franchise, and the training they provide. Certainly a lot more than the effort to figure out which button to push on the register for a doughnut and coffee. It is socialism to demand that I take my hard-earned money out of my pocket and turn it into not-so-hard-earned largesse for unskilled workers. The provincial Liberals keep leaning farther into NDP socialism with every regulation they enact. Of course, the hardcore lefties eat this up, but the rest of us are holding the bag.

FIX TCHC

Instead of wasting $51 million or more on a silly idea like bike lanes on Yonge St. between Sheppard and Finch, why doesn’t Toronto city council put that money towards the horrible backlog of repairs at TCHC. That would make more sense to me. Or fixing the roads in Toronto. I hope voters, especially in Willowdale, are paying attention and will make themselves heard at election time.

SHOW SOME RESPONSIBILITY

I am ashamed and disgusted at the incompetence and insensitivity of the PMO on the so-called relationship-building trip to India. Inviting a convicted terrorist to hobnob with has done exactly the opposite and made all decent people in both countries shake their heads. No wonder former B.C. premier Ujjal Dosanjh, who was assaulted by terrorist thugs, feels that relationships with India have dipped to an all-time low. Rescinding the invitation and an apology on Twitter is not enough. The PM has to demonstrate strength by firing the people responsible for this serious gaffe. Start by removing MP Sarai from the Liberal party. Jagmeet Singh’s failure to denounce the glorification of Air India bombing suspects and his remarks now about Indian politicians trying to interfere with Canadian Sikh community are a laughable attempt at playing politics himself. He is unsuitable to lead a major political party. I hope NDP members agree.

WAS IT WORTH IT?

I hope that the butter chicken Mr. Trudeau ate was well worth it. That’s the least I can hope for. In a country of more than a billion, a country where it was invented, apparently not one chef can make adequate Indian food. I find bringing Vikram Vij, a celebrity chef, halfway across the world to make food preposterous. However, the most dreadful part of this all is that we paid for it. We paid for the PM of Canada, Mr. Justin Trudeau, to invite a celebrity chef from Canada to India to make Indian food. However, this is nothing new to Mr. Trudeau, he has done this in the past, and if nothing changes, he will do it again.
