Don’t forget Wednesday, 24 April, 2013. That very day, the world got a profound lesson about unexpected consequences of globalization. It was collapse of a multi-storey building that housed several light-industries in Dhaka, Bangladesh. More than 900 workers were apprehensive about safety of the place. Then came sudden terror, fortunately brief, as they fell with all around them to their deaths. The lucky ones perished instantly. Three weeks later, many remain in the ruins, only as nauseous stench of rotting flesh. Many temporary survivors await their ends. The families and friends of all will be lifetime casualties. THE “PERPS” The expected accusations of greed, corruption, and revenge already begin to outnumber the cries of sympathy. Many of the latter might be only hollow tokens to be cast upon the altar of unwarranted self-justifications, possibly by some yet unidentified contributors to the disaster. THEIR EXPLOITATION (?) Casual attention to our news media might persuade us to suppose that those workers have been virtually slave-labour. What else would we think of 16 cents an hour? Among us here, how many see that to be a close match of our minimum wage of about $11 per hour? This insight was imparted by a Bangladeshi immigrant who says that $1 CDN buys in Dhaka what we would spend $70 CDN to buy in Canada. In Dhaka, about 25% of any daily wage is discretionary income, compared to about 16% here. Out of it, in Toronto we pay for telephone and T.T.C. to keep us in the loop of employment. In Dhaka, work is a walk away, and it is 12 hours a day, fulltime. Here, our shifts are eight hours in fulltime work. But, not all of our working-poor are fortunate enough to work fulltime. How much better-off are they than in Dhaka? Maybe this observation could purge some of us out of our belief that we are a superb example of equality, justice, and all the other “good stuff”.


OUR EXPLOITED At YWN we have, for years been pounding our heads on our proverbial Wailing Wall, about casual dismissal of our own working poor. Letters to our Editor do not indicate that we have been convincing. We recommend and appeal to our readers to urge our governments and their agencies to take initial steps in this matter. The need is for escalation of incomes and training into earned prosperity with sustainable Canadian careers. We think that citizenship should be a prosperously vigorous joy, far better than a dismal drudgery to be endured by momentary of mockery.

Passing the Joint with Trudeau by Bruce Ryan Hysterical media articles about medical cannabis "grow-ops" being over their approved numbers of plants paint a picture of 'illegal' activities. Oh my god, plants! Quick, someone call the cops before they run. I must say‌. with the disaster engineered by Health Canada, someone has to pick up the slack. Most medical patients won't buy the poor quality "marihuana" the government grows in that copper mine in Manitoba. At $5 per gram, this stuff is worse than outdoor Mexican biker weed. So, let me get this straight, indoors it costs about $1 per gram to grow commercially and the government can't make any money? As a result, in their infinite wisdom, they are cancelling the medical patients (and their growers) right to grow their own herb. A medical grower can produce a truly excellent product, a simple plant, for about 30 cents a gram. Outdoors it is cheaper yet. Who are the people the government giving the business to? We have no real idea. Sounds like large commercial growers. Someone with a whole lot of money. Someone with millions to invest. Maybe the same people who brought us Monsanto or Big Tobacco. Perhaps Molson's would like to convert another brewery? The stated reason is that it cost Health Canada too much money to run the mess of the program they have built (and defended in court) over the past 12 long years. How can the largest pot dealer in Canada not be making any money? Health Canada should be raking in huge amounts of money day after day. Considering a captive market of 26,000 patients, this works out to about $141,180,000 (141 MILLION) per year. They don't make any money: because they produce "medical grade" "marihuana" that is a complete fraud. Cancer patients return this stuff, refuse to pay the bill and switch to growing their own. Some people have invested lots of time and money to make sure that growing their garden is safe, clean, up to standards and secure. Yes, it is possible to get a little carried away. Plants are easy to grow if you have a green thumb. Seeds sprout quickly. Cannabis can be quite enthusiastic. That's one of the reasons we call it "weed". Quite often little cuttings are taken from one big plant to share with others. Certainly not a "plant" yet (no roots)‌. but we are to somehow believe the cops that this tiny 2" cutting is worth $1,000? Sounds impressive. Sounds like magical thinking. How much are you willing to pay for a little basil herb plant? Two bucks. The only polite term here is horsefeathers. The entire program, the entire war on drugs, is an expensive, abject failure. Our own Senate called this agenda a "failure of good governance" with serious Charter violations over ten years ago. We all know who pays for this disastrous "failure of good governance". We do. Through our taxes. Billions upon billions wasted year after year, decade after decade. The Auditor General reported that over $30 million was "un-accounted for" in the Medical Marihuana Access 'program'. All paid for - compliments of the citizens. Thanks! Certainly not at the expense of the politicians or the police. Far more to their benefit‌. for all the "results" achieved. Canada has wasted countless billions on this corrupt policy. Suckers! We are wasting more resources and taxes on an agenda that has proven not to work. Cannabis is still easy to find. Medical patients are still walking a minefield. We are still putting people in prison for a plant, a god-given herb. The only sanity I see is the Liberal's Policy Paper on Cannabis issued in January, 2013. I was relieved to see the new Liberal Leader adopt the official party policy and call for legalization. We all know that the Senate concluded in 2002 that "decriminalization" is just a further waste of money, resources and creates corruption at all levels of government. After the party passed the resolution in 2012 with a wide margin, it is obvious that the Liberals see a reduction in costs and an increase in revenues through an enlightened policy. At a Federal level, this policy would reduce a wide variety of costs and implies a re-direction of funds for various programs, research, education and other enlightened purposes. After all, I love hearing a politician call for "more studies" when the government has not approved any research licenses nor funded a single study during the past 10 years. Give it a try. Ask Health Canada for a research license to find out, for example, if criminal prosecutions for cannabis affect young people. Lets fund a study (again) regarding cannabis and driving. How about a study to find out if cannabis is actually "dangerous" according to toxicology indicators? We could conceive of a study to track the effects of prohibition on "a vulnerable segment of the population". The greatest study might be to prove that cannabis cures cancer, or epilepsy, or Alzheimer's. Sorry, was three studies or just one? There are over a thousand studies published over the past ten years. Just none of them done here. Smells a little fishy. The Liberal Legalization Policy Paper outlines a comprehensive legal production program with licensed producers and outlets across the country. Restrictions on sales to minors and cross-border trafficking are put in place. Savings in police, courts, jails and associated programs are realized. Resources are devoted to real crime, research & education instead of useless enforcement. Citizens working in the industry are able to come into the light, hire workers, build the economy and assist a "new growth industry". ALL without creating a new level of "sin taxes" or new levels of bureaucracy. The existing model proposed by Health Canada for production covers all the bases to provide clean, organic, high-grade cannabis with suitable controls for social consumption. In fact, Health Canada is transferring administration of the program to the "Office of Controlled Substances - Controlled Substances and Tobacco Directorate". How's that for a fancy 1984-like title? (psst, it gets better). The proposed model also calls for licenses to ship cannabis across borders. Which makes me wonder: do we get to supply Washington and Colorado now? After all, it is just a plant. We have a fine reputation in the industry. Kind of like grapes. In fact, with a little effort and a green thumb you can make fine wine. The government, of course, would like a cut of the deal if you want to sell wine to all your friends, people, admirer's and supporters. Kind of makes sense to regulate cannabis like grapes. It would be a fine Canadian tradition to engage in bootlegging as the insanity of prohibition finally winds down. PAGE 4 YOUR WARD NEWS MAY 2013


A WHATEVER HAPPENED TO??? BY ROBERT JAMES The Toronto Mental Health Housing and Support Network is requesting assistance from the public to locate escaped involuntary patient Sandra Bussin, please use caution as Bussin is considered crafty and manipulative. On April 30, 2013 it is alleged that Bussin used a realtor’s master key to unlock her straitjacket, and sign a motion to be released unsupervised into the community. We are not sure if it’s the medication she is on, or the medication she needs to be on; but something is not right! Bussin suffers from an inflated sense of ego and is manifesting symptoms of grand delusions, including a staunch belief that holding a undergraduate bachelor of arts is the only prerequisite for municipal office. Although in her defense, a BA degree is a required prerequisite to manage the night shift drive-thru in most fast food joints. During psychiatric treatment Bussin volunteered that she had an unhealthy obsession with former mayor and NDP poster boy David Miller. Miller, a San Francisco, California native raised near Cambridge, England was about the most Canadian mayor our city has seen since... well Mel Lastman before him. Bussin on several occasions would go into a short-term detachment from reality daydreaming about Miller’s considerable “position”. Her mental breaking point occurred during the 2010 Toronto election. After Ward 32 residents had enough of her immoral selling out of our Beaches to the Boardwalk Café, condo developers, and other campaign “donors” a grassroots movement was launched by citizens suggesting voters put their “X” down for ANYBODY BUT BUSSIN! The effects of the Anybody But Bussin campaign were staggering, yet it would be prudent to mention she had no chance in the nine circles of Hell of convincing anyone she needed a fifth term. The surprise was not that Bussin lost the election, but that she lost by a factor of 2.5 to a candidate with no political experience, no education besides reading books written in French, no background, and no record. Not only did Bussin lose to an absolute nobody, she lost to a nobody in one of the most overwhelming landslides our city has seen yet. Since her coup d'état as councilor - shattering any psychedelic induced notion of becoming more then a blindingly, boring, busted, buffoon she retired to Forest Hills. Forest Hill Real Estate that is, where Sandra Bussin: officially licensed über-realtor continues to feed off the generous hands of developers; with listings as varied as condos still under construction, condos where construction has not yet even started, and vacant land we can only assume may one day be the spot of another condo. One concern of interest to the psychiatric staff is her continued assertion that she is a reporter for some type of newsletter. With no noticeable journalist credentials we could find for her, Bussin’s continuing claims that she writes for something called the “Town Crier” can not be verified. Since I never personally even seen a copy of the Town Crier in my mailbox or anywhere else, I simply can not confirm her statements. Although Bussin does enjoy ranting on her twitter account; which as I look at it right now, has exactly 666 followers to the digit on the edge of their seats waiting to see what crazy stunt crazy Bussin has planed next... ... ...

SAVE QUEEN STREET Hi LeRoy: Regarding the article by J.J. in the recent issue under the subtitled “Purpose: To protect the views of the Fire Hal and pretend that it matters. I am a little disappointed that your publication does not seem to think that views of the Fire Hall matter – it is one of the most beautiful buildings in the Beach. I also hope that you do not consider me to be one of the “helpful citizens” that are sarcastically mentioned. Unfortunately, the matter before Council was only the “guidelines” dealing with the shape and appearance of future buildings, and putting some of those guidelines into the zoning bylaw. So, issues about flooding, or even traffic and parking, have been left out. This is because the whole “Visioning Study” process that the Councillor launched didn’t include a full study of ALL the issues that relate to development on Queen Street . We could have had proper study of geology, hydrology and everything else, if McMahon had done the right thing: pass an Interim Control Bylaw and have the City pay independent consultants to do either a full Avenue Study or Secondary Plan Study with full input from the community. Judging from the submissions made last fall to the study facilitator and Council, most people feel that the guidelines go too far. Yet, the GBNA says that these guidelines are the result of a “community consensus” which was clearly not true. Even worse, the guidelines do not offer the full protection of a “Secondary Plan” or an “Area Specific Policy” (both of which go right into the Official Plan itself). The latter is what Mike Layton is getting for Ossington. I fought for improvements to be made to the guidelines – to ensure that it is harder for Council or the Committee of adjustment to ignore the partly changes that we are getting. Council did not even stop to ask one question about the specific changes or problems shown in my presentation. You are not the only “lone voice” out there – but what is an issue is that some of the so-called “neighbourhood” groups out there that pretend to speak for the community but unwilling to challenge McMahon and other members of Council to do far better than what the sloppy work that the Planning Department feeds them. Brian Graff

Hi Brian, I understand you ran in to my ace investigative reporter J.J. at Tuesday evening’s meeting regarding the Carmelina Condominiums. He reported that he met you before at City Hall and says you are quite amiable. Of course you are… You’re a Beacher! I guess some residents aren’t thrilled at having a huge crane swinging over their properties and occasionally dropping concrete. That crane is mammoth! About your letter: We also love the view of the fire hall tower as it is part of the backdrop that VISUALLY greets visitors to the Beach. I do believe that it “over-shadowed” some issues regarding the safety of Beach denizens and your e-mail strongly indicates that you also have concerns about the lack of geological/hydrological information. We at Ward 32 News have concentrated on the issues that can’t be seen by the human eye. No one else seemed to care at all. That is why J.J. referred to us as the “lone voice” when it comes to the safety of our fellow Beachers. I think we can both agree that our local councilor has been less than adequate on all issues regarding construction in our beloved Beach. We certainly appreciate your involvement in the Queen Street issue as you fought for improvements to the guidelines. As you stated in your e-mail, Council didn’t stop to ask you one question about your presentation. Upon returning to the office after the City Hall meeting, J.J. said he was stunned at the lack of interest shown by the councilors. I can assure you that we appreciate your involvement because apathy in general has seemed to taken hold of the public. As far as publishing some of your articles, we thought your opinions were worthy of exposure to the public. After all, I have taken a more radical position and kept attacking like a pit bull. Your ‘take’ on the subject helped ‘tone down’ our publication. As far as I am concerned, the fight to save Queen Street is far from over as it is not in my personality to give in when I know I’m right. We are now trying to think of a way to FORCE a complete hydrological study. If you have any ideas that will help us do that, please share them with us as your input will be taken more seriously by us than it was by our local politicians. LeRoy

Mayor Ford, cleaning up the city’s filth. By Robert James On Saturday, April 20th Mayor Rob Ford organized a city wide Community Clean-up Day encouraging fellow citizens to help clean up the garbage and debris left by those who just can’t ever seem to find the nearby waste bin, often a few feet in front of their very nose. Your Ward News reporter Michelle L. Erstikaitis took the initiative for our team and signed up both her and myself to pitch in, yet instead of cleaning up here in our Beaches we decided to see just how well Moss Park is being taken care off. Moss Park is not only home to a large Canadian Forces facility, it also hosts one of the most dense groupings of taxpayer funded homeless shelters, drop-in centres, social agencies, outreach groups, and rehab clinics. Thankfully in our Beaches we only have a few community housing initiatives forced down our pharynx by make busy/make money councilors, so we do not have to put up with the same amount of riffraff as in the inner city. Michelle, concerned why in an area created for children to enjoy baseball, climb on the play structure or have fun on the swing set – vagrants feel they can have the run of the place; partnered up with myself to support Ford’s request for volunteers. Packed with only a few garbage bags and some gloves we took one look around and realized just how disgusting some local residents were. The park, originally planned for the use of families, children and amateur athletes has become a dirty eyesore of filth, disease, drug use, prostitution and cheap booze. We spent the windy, cold day picking up not only trash left by litterbugs but a wide variety of sickening paraphernalia left over from a welfare cheque financed party. Empty beer cans, used crack pipes, hypodermic syringes both with and without rusty used needles, and semen filled condoms greeted us at every turn. Along with that the standard homeless trash faced by us included, flat cardboard boxes, soiled underwear, worn out socks, blood stained blankets, heavily expired food containers from drop-in centres, and the ever present smell of human urine and feces. These people refuse to look after themselves, respect our communities, find a job, or even spend a few minutes cleaning up after themselves. Much like a vermin - gorging on the pockets of taxpayer handouts - will by their very nature only leave a trail of destruction and contamination behind them. Two days later, just two days after Michelle Erstikaitis and I stood up with Mayor Ford to pitch in we were shocked to discover the municipal hobo convention dirtied Moss Park yet again. There are several signs stating that no adults are allowed on the playground area without children, and several CCTV cameras are in place, yet the police are too boggled down by the socialist agenda to actually enforce common decency and arrest these blood sucking insects. Should the government ever decide that our Beaches would be a socially appropriate area to create more “services” for those suffering from vagrancy, mental health issues and drug abuse; we need to stand tall! Do you want this to happen to Ashbridge's Bay Park or Kew Gardens? I know the kids don’t. PAGE 7 YOUR WARD NEWS MAY 2013

Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, Crazy Leeches by Robert James The Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) is a morally criminal group in our city who teach others how to manipulate the welfare system, and make a living off the backs of taxpayers. The group originally started by anarchists and members of other communist organizations first called themselves the “Toronto Union of Unemployed Workers” even though their unemployment was mostly voluntary. In recent years even the real unions, including CAW and CUPE has withdrawn support for such “poverty crusaders” due to OCAP’s fair game policy directed against working poor. Following the Marxist-Leninist tactics of direct action, the OCAP has illegally blockaded major streets, burglarized building to use as squat houses, aggressively verbally attacked several people living in their private residences, crashed political events and are extremely confrontational with neighbourhood associations trying to keep crime and vagrancy out of their communities. On June 15, 2000, OCAP started a riot at Queen's Park where their socialist revolution was to take place. Police officers, police horses and security guards were victims of physical violence by the OCAP leaders and their cronies, leading to over forty arrests. One look at OCAP’s website proves they have no interest in the concerns of those working several jobs just to make ends meet. Demanding that the government raise the rates for welfare junkies to more then what people working 40 hours a week for $15 an hour make after tax is beyond belief. Yet until then the website lists every scam in the book so leeches can collect even more tax dollars; including how to claim a special diet allowance, get a transportation bonus, and how to grab extra start-up cash if you just got out of jail. Not only is the application process for OW and ODSP given step by step, they even provide advice on how to lie to your social worker, collect under the table income and avoid required visits. Since OW pays less then ODSP the coalition recommends everybody immediately apply for it, even those that are not genuinely disabled. In their own words: “We encourage people to apply for ODSP because you will get more money then (OW) and because you are less likely to be hassled.” This is legally considered disability fraud! Why is the OCAP not in jail? PAGE 8 YOUR WARD NEWS MAY 2013


Mary-Margaret McMahon, serving you effectively??? By Robert James It always brings a smile to our gleaming eyed faces as we excitedly await for another one of McMahon’s taxpayer funded newsletters. Taking the opportunity to disseminate the word of our Lord McMahon, is always an enjoyable pastime for us fervently loyal Beachers. This time Ward 32’s current councilor does not disappoint, as her hilarious propaganda once again shows the level of malicious plans for our community, hidden under the shadow of “good” intentions... it truly is the road to hell. Of course McMahon can not go less then two paragraphs on the first article on her front page without attacking Mayor Ford; questioning his tenure, and reminding us of all the slanderous balderdash continuously regurgitated by the left. The fact that Ford coaches a student football team for at-risk-kids, saves taxpayer money by driving his own vehicle, wants an investigation into the corrupt Bussin/Foulidis deal, and the lies Sarah Thomson makes up is the pathetic fodder everlastingly dished out by the socialist agenda. Sarah Thomson’s repulsive allegations, even when proven to be false by witnesses is being armed by left-wing feminists specifically for the 2014 Toronto Mayoral Election. McMahon also wants her Ward to ignorantly ignore her selling out of our Beaches to the blood sucking developers of condominiums and big box stores, as local small business and community churches are forced out for demolition. Mary-Margaret mentions how firmly she stands behind the Queen Street Urban Design Guidelines, and actually expects us to believe community input was considered before the annihilation of our east end. She also warns us about the construction and noise disturbance we will have to suffer under her self-serving rulership. Her map of the Beaches printed in her newsletter shows construction efforts in roads and parks, while totally ignoring the real systematic damage being inflicted by major developments... instead pointing out locations of what BIA is running the “protection racket” in the area. Finally in the back page of McMahon’s newest propaganda, funded with your money a list of municipal and provincial contact numbers make it easy to reach government services. Yet the Toronto Police, the Fire Department, Transit Commission, Hydro and Employment Hotlines all take a back seat. The very first contact number, topping the list is for the Ontario Disability Support Program. Do we really need a councilor who sells out our community for profit, who wastes our money printing Orwellian blackwhite, who supports attacks against the mayor for her own political/financial ends, and who proudly displays ODSP as the number one governmental contact??? The only reason this inexperienced nobody got elected was to get Bussin out. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss! PAGE 9 YOUR WARD NEWS MAY 2013

Participatory Citizenship, a democratic Love story.

By Robert James When I heard of the trials and tribulations one Canadian citizen has, and continues to face for writing non-violent, non-threatening letters I was aghast. Most people have never taken the opportunity to question their government’s policies, or rebut their agenda; others have hidden their personal opinions from the clearly biased reporting of major media. Yet what can happen when a private individual, via personal correspondences with politicians and newspapers decides to take a stand and debate the facts? In the traditional form of democracy barely still memorable; it was not only the Average Joe’s right to engage his elected officials, it was a sacred duty of every active Canadian citizen. Brad Love at 54 years of age is an old school family man, always an upbeat neighbour to everyone and shows a strong work ethic, regrettably not instilled in the post-Trudeau era. At one time a construction worker and bricklayer in Etobicoke, Brad found (as most reliable blue collar blokes do) the real work and pay is in Alberta’s industry rich promised land. After leaving the GTA Brad without delay found work in Fort McMurray – Canada’s heart for black gold, next door to the Athabasca Oil Sands. Often getting up to 84 hours of work in some weeks, Bard makes it clear he does not pay half of his wages in taxes... the government just takes what they want before the ink is dry on his well earned paycheque. You think more then anyone Brad should have the freedom to write letters to members of parliament or newspapers during his lunch break about how his... not the government’s, his money is being used. Well our Canadian government seems not to think so and have harassed, imprisoned, tried to bankrupt, confiscated private property, and even illegally revoked his charter rights. What murderous act of savage terrorism did Brad Love commit to become an enemy of the state? Honestly, he used an old fashioned typewriter to write non-violent, non-threatening letters... THAT’S IT! As any Canadian should be, Brad Love is highly critical of half his pay being used to fund a varied number of social programs including immigration, restorative justice and foreign aid. For such “crimes” he is having his life and finances broken apart for simply using his democratic rights to privately contact his elected officials and the media. If that does not get our readers upset, maybe the fact Canada runs their own internal kangaroo court system (spending millions per year to prosecute people like Brad) should. What is more we need to be ever vigilant of the growing police state following orders form the quasi-official, self-elected nanny state who now uses our own police force to intimidate and provoke what it considers to be political dissidents. Someone in the government did not like what he read, and stripped Brad of most of his fundamental freedoms under the Canadian Charter. Does that mean fundamental freedoms do not apply to a citizen when the government says so? “The average crack dealer would get legal aid for free, spend 20 minutes in court and get maybe 60 days in prison” Brad commented. In his case Mr. Love has spent the past four years flying back and forth from his small town in Alberta to Toronto, spending a countless fortune to battle the so-called “criminal justice system”. Brad has also spent six months behind bars after being encouraged to plead guilty by his own lawyer who quickly took his payment and has since abandoned his client. Unconstitutionally Brad was ordered by the courts not to write to ANYONE without expressed consent. That means Brad can not dispute any discrepancies on a bill, can not plead his case with the court of public opinion, or even send out birthday wishes and Christmas cards. Yet what's more even with express consent, the kangaroo courts - agreeing that Brad did not break his probation by calling before hand; still found him guilty of breach of probation... So you are technically innocent, but paradoxically guilty by Canadian legal standards?!?! Inciting subversion of state power is still a crime under the law of the Communist State of China, used against human rights campaigners, democracy supporters, and political reformists. Most of those convicted did nothing more then write letters or make statements that were critical of their government. How could we, as a free people allow the Canadian government to let our legal system take advice from Mao Tse-tung's evil little red book? PAGE 11 YOUR WARD NEWS MAY 2013

Paul Murton’s QUEEN STREET NEWSLETTER - Back from the Dead??? Paul, long time no read! It’s been a while since you last printed your piddle, and we kind of missed your desperate, meandering ranting. You haven’t had anything out since your last November edition, and we were a little worried you declared financial insolvency again. This time though LeRoy is not going to bail you out and pay your rent... but he will make sure that the Salvation Army keeps a bed at their Maxwell Meighen Center cold for you. We see you must have lost your “contract” with the printer of those nice glossy covers, or at least they got tired of you wasting their ink. Either way it’s kind of hard to con anyone into thinking you actually have different magazines since you can’t swap covers anymore. At least you save some money personally delivering them, not too many to print anyway! How is it going with Robin? Must be under some severe withdrawal symptoms, what with not being able to pull in some quick crack money anymore. So much for Robin’s... I’m sorry, Peter Moore’s bait & scam pitch. Is he still telling advertisers that you publish bi-monthly? It’s been almost seven months now... guess there are a lot of ticked off businesses who got swindled by you and Robin. By the way, everyone noticed you at John Long’s birthday party. Looking a little dirty and left out Paul. I know you don’t have the spare change to pay for laundry, but please at least try to look a little respectable if that word is in your vocabulary. Also that scruffy unshaven look does not work well on you, but at least it keeps the women a safe distance away from your general vicinity. Creep factor alert!!! Now you finally admit that LeRoy is the owner of Ward 32 News, and owner of the websites. Took you a while! Since you now admit to LeRoy’s ownership you have illegally accessed the web server and defaced the website. Another violation of the Criminal Code of Canada on your part. First perpetrating corporate identity theft, then defrauding both LeRoy and his clients, and now computer hacking. Get this through your head you NEVER ran this paper, you only did LeRoy’s graphics and web design. You were horrible at it and fired! You scammed LeRoy just like you do with everyone else, and now you can do nothing but bitch. Glad your being a big boy and “sucking it up”... yet trust me – we *ARE* being NICE to you, Paulie Boy. Now go away now. Shoo! - Robert James PAGE 14 YOUR WARD NEWS MAY 2013


Robert Spencer, Ward 36 Candidate General Manager of the Bluffs Advocate. Not to mention treasurer CFO at Beach Community Energy Co-operative and member of the Toronto District School Board’s Environmental Advisory Committee... Is it a conflict of interest? Dear Bluffs Advocate, I received your paper in my mailbox last week and since you appear not to have announced that your paper has strong NDP leanings, I thought you might be willing to print a letter pointing this out to your readers. Your front page lead story is about Gus Harris who you describe as having “socialist leanings”. On your second page there is a letter from Ed Treadway, who has been fighting plans for the Quarry Lands by the Conservatory Group. We here in Guildwood applaud Mr. Treadway’s efforts. We also notice that in his reply to his letter, your General Manager, Mr. Spencer, did not answer his question about who funds your newspaper. The public does have a right to know how it is funded, and like Mr. Treadway, we here in Guildwood would appreciate a public response to that question. Throughout the rest of your paper you cover labor issues, take a veiled shot at Mr. Ford, Toronto ’s Mayor, with respect to the Guild Inn, pointing out that “public space is not gravy”. You also mention the Artscape proposal for the Guild Inn being put aside for Centennial’s proposal, again a veiled form of disapproval of Mr. Ainslie’s handling of this issue. You may not be aware of this, but this community has stated its opinion often about wanting The Guild to be redeveloped as a space for artists but also for a decent restaurant and wedding and conference facilities. Unfortunately city bureaucrats have, in the past, prevented the community's wishes from being addressed. Page 6 takes another shot at Mr. Ainslie and other Scarborough Councillors for supporting Mr. Ford’s budget, and celebrates the win of community groups for a 1.4 million increase in community grants. Throughout, all of your articles, from the economy to the environment have a distinct NDP bias, yet you do not state this anywhere in your paper, claiming instead to simply be a group of “progressives”. Does this mean that you consider anyone who does not support these positions to be “regressive”? It has been said that truth is the first casualty of war. Given that the truth of your paper’s political leanings appears to be being hidden, one wonders if this is simply the opening salvo of a PR war in this community. And given your position with respect to alternative energy, could this PR war possibly be, once again, about wind turbines in Lake Ontario, and an attempt to elect an NDP Councillor here or perhaps an NDP MPP? This community has already said no to wind turbines, for many well researched reasons. Kindly do not begin another PR “war” on this topic now. It would not end well. And if you are attempting to gain the election of NDP Councillors or MPP’s, perhaps you should be more honest and up front about your intentions, and let the public know that your paper is a political advertisement, not, as it claims to be, an “advocate” for the Bluffs or Scarborough.

Yours truly, Sherri Lange PAGE 15 YOUR WARD NEWS MAY 2013


www.na-paw.org A Full Load of Hot Air By Sherri Lange, CEO Founding Director, Toronto Wind Action Executive Director, Canada, Great Lakes Wind Truth VP Canada, Save the Eagles International

Vestas in hospital, trying to recover.

The word is in: wind is out. Even the CEO of Vestas recently admitted that the wind industry currently is suffering from “credibility issues.” But the new “kid” on the block, Bluffs Advocate and it’s G.M. Robert Spencer, is still a wind pusher it seems... The Advocate’s second edition has caused a few raised eyebrows and curled a few tongues with a feature article: “Windpower and Nuclear Power Compete for Our Energy Future.” Distributed to Bluffs and Beaches, this is especially quixotic and whimsical, given the hard won offshore moratorium, and the obvious furor of shore line folks who lined up at meetings and went door to door with flyers, and generally shared their knowledge about wind power in the Lakes, successfully. (This article is a bit like visiting your grandma’s house, when she’s been gone a year already.) The mere puff of the idea that wind can compete with any baseload power such as nuclear, coal, gas, or hydro, is simply grandstanding of a true wind pusher who has not been reading the papers lately. How valid are the environmental claims against wind in the Great Lakes, this author asks? Jane Rogers has done hundreds of hours of research and once reading her material, you would never again even think of the ridiculousness of industrializing the Lakes, 20% of the world’s remaining fresh water reserves.

Her points: don’t disturb the heavily contaminated lakebed; migration routes, and some anseriformes nesting during winter 3-4 km out; habitat fragmentation; shipping lanes; infrasound and LFN that hits the jet stream and bounces off the water attenuated about 1% over a mile….hence virtually not at all; mechanical failure and chemical discharges; mixing of contaminants (92 billion tons of raw sewage still find their way into the Lakes each year); and every chemical known to man continues to plague the health of the Lakes, i.e., don’t stir this up on the lakebed; “Adverse effects on embryo development due to electro-magnetic changes, air pressure changes and general 'soundscape' or infrasound level changes for both ‘animals’ and ‘humans’ (Pierpont, 2009) (that) has only recently become known or studied. Due diligence is extremely necessary in further study in this important animal/human, health-related areas. Electro-magnetic changes within surrounding waters could also affect the overall ‘micro health’ of the surrounding water near offshore IWTs”; but most importantly, the Great Lakes is not a massive resource grab. The author goes on to cite cancer rates, purportedly, near nuclear stations. (In fairness, he does mention that these clusters of cancers do not appear to be necessarily related to nuclear stations.) We must assume he believes that this argument has some validity in his comparison with wind power. We assume he understands that one of these power sources works, and the other doesn’t. He must know that nuclear continues to provide baseload power, while wind turbines provide intermittent and ultimately useless power, and that many countries have to export excess power during the peaks when wind IS performing a wee bit, only to have other neighboring countries building energy damns to protect from power disruptions and unenviable surges. He must know that Germany is now building 26 more coal fired plants, because wind and solar didn’t cut the mustard. WHAT IS UP IN FRANCE WITH 4,500 TURBINES? A note from France yesterday: news release from EPAW (European Platform Against Wind Power): At noon yesterday, May 7th, France with 4,500 wind turbines, produced .5% of its power. The cost to build and maintain and subsidize those turbines, 11 BILLION EUROS. The author went on to explain that in order for wind to provide meaningful power to France yesterday at noon, it would be requiring 900,000 wind turbines. This is the lunacy we are presenting when we promote wind power.

PAGE 16 YOUR WARD NEWS MAY 2013


WIND POWER CANNOT COMPETE WHATSOEVER WHENEVER: In the long run, the main theme of the article in the Advocate, a lovely leftie rag masquerading as reasonableness, is that wind power can compete with baseload power: we assure you, it cannot, it will not, and it never will. Not in this generation, nor the next few. Much like pushing buggy whips for the modern age. Yes, buggy whip or two to compete with baseload power. The problem with all this industrial junk that doesn’t do anything meaningful is it takes up our useful resources, clogs our garbage dumps, and inhibits meaningful conservation and enjoyment. Just try to get rid of those rare earth elements from China and the carbon fibre blades that can’t be recycled. Premier McWynnty promises now to be more collegial with Ontario and let us choose where we want those nasty turbines that make people ill, destroy prime farm land, wetlands, recreation areas, important bird areas, and reduce property values to nilch…new word. Over 92 communities have told the Premier in no uncertain terms that they are NOT willing hosts. I wonder where she will put the new ones then. There’s a new phrase now: Community consultation and Community vibrancy funds. That means that they will make the paper work look like they are listening, and then offer you a new baseball diamond, or $25,000 per year for community projects that are bribes, and decided upon by a small group, who will control the funds. My bet: if you don’t like turbines, you are not getting that vibrancy thing! Once more for those who missed it: 1 Wind power doesn’t work. With 140,000 turbines worldwide, we only receive less than ½ of one percent, net zero of our power. 2 Wind power is not green. It is comprised of hundreds of moving parts, up to and more than 1,000 gallons of oil and lubricants, which leak, and must be replaced, is transported using oil and gas, again, and mired in tons of cement. It also contains rare earth elements from China in the magnets, and uses massive amounts of water in the mining. 3 Wind turbines do not translate to jobs. Most jobs are overseas, and a few job teams during construction, preferred workers, are temporarily employed; for every so called green job, jobs are lost due to the high cost of power. Spain has lost 2.2 jobs, UK FOUR. 4 Turbines do not contribute to saving the planet. The hockey stick graph got us all confused for a bit, but we are over that now. Clearly debunked. And CO2 actually increases with turbines because of the life cycle costs and strains on the environment (if this is your measure). 5 Turbines are devastating for birds, bats and wildlife: there are massive cover-ups about the actual numbers, but we know that some species will, WILL become extinct. Habitat fragmentation also ensures that species have trouble finding homes, mating, and otherwise surviving. BIG PROBLEM. For every turbine, six acres of land are cleared, and another 3540 are cleared, consumed if you will, for transmission, and substations. A network of destruction: energy sprawl. DENMARK: PROTOTYPE FOR NATURAL DESTRUCTION Here’s a little thought for you: fresh from today’s world news: this time from Denmark: home to Vestas, and your favorite turbine builder. Remember how they sold us the bill of goods? Turns out Denmark has 186 anti-wind groups and one hell of a corrupt mess, too. Please contact the Premier’s office and tell her we are done with wind power. MORATORIUM NOW. Ontario has already lost 300,000 jobs in the last eight years. Much of that due to the green debacle:

FRAUD ALERT

There are three major types of economic systems in society today; Capitalism, Communism and Murtonism. Capitalism stands for the standard of living for the largest number of nations in the BUYER BEWARE greatest free world. Communism stands for the socioeconomic slavery of the CAVEAT EMPTOR vast majority of it’s people to further then ends of a select few bureaucrats. Murtonism is the intentional deception against abused In this edition of our Fraud column we victims for the sole financial gain of one single person, in this case present our very own Beach resident Paul Murton treats everybody else as a personal ATM machine.

PAULIE BOY MURTON

Beady Malicious Eyes

Dirty & scruffy in appearance.

BY ROBERT JAMES

Paul, a failure as an entrepreneur; suffering from severe bouts of financial insolvency does more then just name-drop successful business owners and a way to inflate his own sense of importance... he goes as far as stealing the identity of the entire corporation! Case in point, Kriminal Records. A local record label and talent promoting agency attracting talent here in East Toronto and the GTA. Kriminal Records (as a sister organization to the Beaches Blues & Danforth Music Festival) was created to offer exposure and guidance to musicians and bands for their future success. Paul Murton was hired for a brief time to duplicate audio CDs as he owned a small, cheep, over-the-counter CD duplicator and offered his overpriced services. When it was discovered that one artist had a crowd of upset music lovers due to most of the CDs Murton *claimed* to have duplicated were blank, just after grabbing hundreds of dollars for the job... suffice to say his services were no longer required.

Not only was this artist defrauded with blank CDs that could literally be purchased for a few pennies, Murton used illegal bait-and-switch tactics before closing the sale. Murton’s company “DBSduplication” advertises pressed CDs, with full colour inserts, a tray card and jewel case for $1.30 per CD. This was the expectation of his customers, yet this is flagrant false advertising as the true cost is closer to $3 - $4 per CD... assuming Paul Murton is even bothered to actually *duplicate* anything rather then rip people off. No wonder DBSduplication has an “F-” rating with the Better Business Bureau, the LOWEST rating even the most corrupt scammer can get! The “F-” rating stands for FRAUD! When Paul Murton realized his days with Kriminal Records were finished, he did not take any mind. You see from day one Murton cultivated a cunning plan to steal Kriminal Records’ identity. Just as he did with countless corporations before, and as he is doing to this vary day – he claims ownership of almost any organization that uses his so called services. A look on DBSduplication’s website shows Paul Murton as the owner of the Danforth Music Festival, the Beaches Blues Fest and Kriminal Records, even though he was only employed minimally by these organizations and fired over one year ago! No, you can not contact the real owner of Kriminal Records on Paul Murton’s sites... you can ONLY call Paul or email Paul, so Paul can convince you he is more then the proverbial ex-janitor as a way to royally rip you off and milk you dry. Do not be fooled by his little beady eyes and deviously malicious gleam! Section 380(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada states "everyone who, by deceit, falsehood or other fraudulent means defrauds the public or any person, of any property, money or valuable security is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to a term of imprisonment not exceeding fourteen years".

Local business owners may recall being called for advertising space in several magazines by a character calling himself “Pete or Peter Moore”. These magazines in question are the Bloor News, Queen Street News, Danforth Magazine, St Clair Magazine, Harbour Front News, and St Jamestown News. These magazine were published by a local Jack-Of-No-Trades named Paul Murton who currently holds an ‘F-‘ rating with the Canadian Better Business Bureau.

THESE MAGAZINES ARE IN NO WAY RELATED TO THIS NEWSPAPER IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM! If you paid for advertising space in these magazines, you need to look on their archive where you will notice nothing has been published since their last November 2012 edition... http://issuu.com/paulmurton - THAT WAS ALMOST SEVEN MONTHS AGO!!! The rare time these publications are released are in EXTREAMLY small numbers for the sole purpose of maintaining and generating ad revenue. In other words the only people who can get a copy are advertisers. If you paid to be in these magazines, that are not related to this newspaper you need to call the publisher, Paul Murton at (416) 693-8530 and demand answers to why you did not get the service you paid for! Why has he taken your money and done NOTHING since last November? While you are at it, request a refund – don’t stand for any bartering for a free upgraded ad size in a magazine that is never circulated – don’t stand for a freebee online coupon for your business on a deserted webpage - don’t stand for anything less then a full refund for the amount you were ripped off. You should also call the pitchman, a person you may know as Peter Moore, whose real name is Robin Jenkins. You can reach “Peter” on his cell at (416) 333-7161 if he is conscious and sober. You need to let Peter Moore know you will no longer be taken advantage of when his drug addiction makes him needy for some quick cash.

SPRING IS IN THE AIR BY Linda Pinizzotto, Sales Representative

LindaPinizzotto.com Sunshine at last and the Toronto Maple Leafs made it to the playoffs. A few days back I was showing downtown Toronto condos and what a madhouse, the energy was fantastic, I loved it! I have to admit I am a Vancouver Canuck Fan because my youngest son, Steve Pinizzotto plays for the Vancouver Canucks so all you hockey fans please keep an eye on him on your big screen TV and if you want a great tip, the NHL app is fabulous. Getting back to my thoughts…. The world of technology has taken over our lives. I can’t even comprehend not having cell phones, iPads, computers etc. Think back when we had to pick up a book to read, sit back without an interruption or just watch a movie. It’s well over a decade ago. In fact, I think we would all hyperventilate if we were to leave home without out cell phones, I know I would but then again it’s my business lifeline. I am not complaining, I can’t imagine not having my cell phone but I just want to reflect on how different we now think. We use to take time to stroll the malls to shop and look at the stores with the big SALE signs. Now we go online and look for time limited discount coupons. A client sent me the name of a website for designer clothing. Talk about shocking, aside from the fact that you better know what size you wear and can shop without trying the clothing on, the discounts are unbelievable and it doesn’t stop there. This site has jewellery, watches, shoes and bedding plus household needs. My client swears by it and literally doesn’t enter a department store anymore and has been hitting this site for over a year now. She says the quality is great and the sizing is perfect. These two things seem to make me shake my head because I think quality is very hard to determine when you only look at something on a website even though it may have a designer label but her theory is that if the price is cheap enough it is worth the gamble. I use to think grocery shopping was such a pain and of course so are the newspaper flyers that come out religiously every Friday because their new sale starts for the week and ends on Thursday night. Do you ever look through No Frills, Food Basic, Sobeys, Metro and Price Chopper even IDA and Shoppers? Well along comes Wal-Mart and their grocery area. Flash Bulletin!! You can do all your shopping at Walmart: drugs, groceries, clothing and the kitchen sink and you can use the discount coupons from all of these stores I mentioned. Did you know that Walmart honours competitive coupons! Now that’s shopping! At the price of gas that last thing you need to do is drive around from Store to Store trying to save some cash when your gas is going to burn it all up. Realistically speaking, doesn’t it feel great when you saved some money although you most likely will just buy something else with your savings? On the other side, sometimes we will just do something because it feels good. Maybe it’s not the best choice or the right answer. Every now and then we just want to treat ourselves and we should because we deserve to be happy and of course between discounts, sale signs and internet shopping we have all sorts of choices. Just don’t put buying real estate in that category. Real estate decisions and properties need expert advice, understanding and important knowledge. They say that when the tulips go up, so do the For Sale signs and whoever started that say is absolutely correct! Everyone seems to be commenting about the market, the interest rates, the economy and the budget. Let’s not forget about the condo market which seems to be the ongoing hot topic in real estate. I have a Radio Show called the “Condo Xpert” but I also talk a lot about real estate and mortgages. You can go into my website www.LindaPinizzotto.com and my radio show link is at the top. My clients know they can always call me for advice no matter what they need to know and that’s very important! I have been representing buyers and sellers for over 33 years and there has been a tremendous amount of fantastic changes. In today’s market you can shop for a home on line, through newspaper ads and on TV. You can see photos, room size measurements, lot size and a full description of the property and of course address and general location. How many of you just call the Real Estate Agent whose name appears on the listing or maybe an advertisement? Did you know that in some way you are also shopping for a Real Estate Agent? A lot of people figure they can buy a home cheaper if they deal with the Real Estate Agent who has the house listed for sale but what the public doesn’t realize is that Real Estate Agents can advertise houses that other Real Estate Agents have listed for sale. We all try to work together so many times when we list a house we click off the box that allows other agents to advertise. Choosing a Realtor to work with is very important because it is about trust and good service. No matter how strong technology becomes and no matter how many websites are out there with listings of detached homes, semi-detach homes, townhomes or condominiums you will still need to see the home and that means you should be contacting me. Life is all about opportunities. I always figure we meet or cross paths with one another for a reason. When I began my real estate career in 1979, it was important for me to have a flexible career. I loved real estate, negotiations and helping family’s so the fit was perfect. I met people through my 3 son’s hockey teams, baseball, church, school functions and word of mouth referrals spread like wildfire. It was fantastic and the beginning of lifelong friendships not just clients. At times I would bring my sons and they played with my clients children. Today I am selling homes to their children and their children’s friends. Strangers became clients – clients became friends – friends are like family and that is how I have continued to be a successful Real Estate Agent for over 33 years. If you are thinking about buying or selling your home I would love to hear from you Linda@LindaPinizzotto.com Direct 416-561-7373

Toronto Star’s track record speaks for itself. Many citizens, including bright people like your self, cannot recognize the socially Marxist character due to the fact that our society has been immersed in this insidious ideology. What you may recognize as ‘political correctness’ is an evolved form of this evil. Due to incrementalism it has consumed us slowly but surely. But as you stated, you are not defending the Star anyway.

It’s time for the people in our ward to wake up and smell the coffee while it’s still fresh. For over five years we have been printing the truth, since then more and more people like yourself have got the point we are getting across.
