After 20 years, its time to say goodbye

There are some who are going to read this and be honestly shocked by what I’m about to write. This week I cancelled my memberships and monthly donations to the federal and provincial Libéral parties.

Last Night was Great!

As you may remember from the last few days, myself and my colleague at The 905er, were invited on as panelists with the Community Climate Council‘s webinar on the province’s proposed Highway 413.

What struck us most was the wide attendance of people from across the 905 who would be impacted by the highway’s development. Opposition to this project comes from a wide swath of Ontario. The provincial government would be wise to pay attention to the criticism it is hearing.

The webinar was recorded, when I have a copy I’ll make sure to link to it!

Please join us on Tuesday Feb 23rd

However, it is still highly inconsistent on a global level.

I’m really proud of this. Give it a listen please.

If you have 40 minutes today give a listen to this week’s episode of The 905er. I’m really proud of this episode and is what we hoped to accomplish with this medium and format.

When have the doctors been wrong?

As the latest lockdown measures are about to be lifted here in Ontario, once again we are hearing from scientists and doctors that if we let our guard down, the new variant could drive us into a third lockdown this spring.

Bell, Bell, Bell…

It’s amazing how quickly Bell has undone years of good will built up with their #bellletstalk Day. For years, Bell appeared to be the giant conglomerate who cared about your well being. This year started off no different. Until the day ended.

Let’s Try This Again, Shall We?

The big news of the week is of course, the province is going to emerge from lockdown this month. At first glance, these protocols the province is describing seems to be fairly reasonable. The Premier wanted to project a sense of hope, by saying there is light coming through the clouds.
