Newmarket's biggest liar
|Posted on May 9, 2017 at 4:55 PM|
I never had any intention to write an in-depth account about the events surrounding my choice to drop out as a candidate for the nomination of the Newmarket-Aurora Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario a few months ago. At the time, I felt I owed people an explanation and wanted to move on to other things I am involved with.

Town of Newmarket defends entering your property without permission
|Posted on March 28, 2017 at 2:05 PM|
Four months ago, I met a friend at the Town of Newmarket municipal bylaw office. She was scheduled for a meeting with the town’s bylaws director, Leslie Long – a meeting she had requested.

During a radio interview earlier today, CPC leadership hopeful Kellie Leitch said she wanted to start a discussion on the topic of Canadian values.

Although we often talk about ...Read Full Post »
Wynne's Climate Change plan has great consequences of another kind
|Posted on June 8, 2016 at 5:45 PM|
Living in a northern climate, Ontarians are quite sensitive to the costs of heating our homes in the winter months. Each year, we hear dreadful stories of seniors and low income families having to choose between home heating and food.
