Cornwall - Jun. 15, 2011 - What is wrong with Tim Hudak anyway? Doesn’t he know that his name should be McHudak. Elaine MacDonald and Jim McDonell will work hard see that Dalton McGuinty is defeated in the McElection, while Mark MacDonald will also work hard to return McGuinty to Queen’s Park. It will be a very confusing ballot locally with MacDonald, MacDonald and McDonell. What are the odds that the Greens locally will run a Mc or a Mac candidate?
Tonight is the stuff that every hockey player in Canada dreams of. Game seven of the Stanley Cup final – winner take all! I am not a big fan of either the Vancouver Canucks or the Boston Bruins, but it has been a very entertaining series to watch. Lots of hitting, lots of animosity and plenty of story lines. So far, it has been the “Tale of Two Cities” with the home team winning all six games thus far. The big question going into game seven is “Which Roberto Luongo will show up?”
Predictions are like noses, in that everybody has one. So, here goes. First goal wins – Vancouver will win 3-2 in single overtime.
Interesting that the Harper government is considering passing legislation that will put an end to the Air Canada strike - if union negotiators and airline management can’t reach a deal. Labour Minister Lisa Raitt said Tuesday, “We are concerned by the effect that this strike will have on our economic recovery, which is still fragile, and on Canadians in general.”
Out of 100 Canadians, how many of them were likely to board an airplane today? Out of those same 100 Canadians, how many of them would have looked in their mailbox at some point today?
Only today after Canada Post has shut down its entire operation, has Minister Raitt stated that she may also consider bringing in legislation to end the Postal strike. Her reasoning for waiting almost two weeks before suggesting any action was that she was waiting for it to be a national work stoppage. “Yes. The trigger is it’s a national work stoppage so I am going to look at it seriously,” she said. “I want to see what the effect is still on the Canadian public and the economy.”
Makes you wonder what former United States President Ronald Reagan might have done…
