“Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent; selected from the rest of mankind their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity of knowing its true interests, and when they succeed to the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any throughout the dominions.”
― Thomas Paine, Common Sense
The least number of sitting days of any legislative assembly in Canada, the PEI Province House shut down for Holidays. Its blatant patronage in the house combined with role playing, spin and posing, really its a house of shame. Avoiding contractual obligations and removing any legal recourse for abused unions was pushed into law in record time. Policy is stuffed like a festive turkey, nobody knows whats in it.
The PEI Legislature is manipulated by the Liberal team in the most pompous manner without care of any democratic bulldozing in the “party” interests. The Legislature is ample example of everything wrong in the Westminster Parliamentary rules. Parties in majority like Ghiz in PEI and Harper in Ottawa have disgusted process and Canadians.
Olive Crane did suggest they strike a committee to evaluate the numbers of MLA’s in PEI, which was quickly shot down by the room full of freeloaders. The PEI Leader of the NDP has made some great suggestions about trimming the number of representatives to 15.
Serious changes must be made in PEI and the new NDP Leader, Mike Redmond has ideas, something we have not seen since Dynamite Dick Brown got unceremoniously booted into the street, by his old buddy, Robert Ghiz.
In an insulting and hollow statement, Finance Minister Wes Sheridan of PEI claimed he will help single parents, seniors and low income Islanders next, but only when and if he balances the budget. Sheridan has never done anything on, in or under budget, nor has any Ghiz project or legal bill. Sheridan and Ghiz have increased every tax and fee while doubling the debt.Failing to raise the annual personal income tax deduction in PEI amounts to a “net” and “gross” raise in taxes. This annual tax increase hits the poor the worst. Shame on the media in PEI to let Sheridan make such a statement betraying the poor whom he has never helped.
Sheridan has tried to redefine all words related to debt, they all add up to Loser with a capital L. Ghiz and Sheridan have more than doubled the PEI debt, they never helped the poor with a lousy dime. The PNP rip off of 500 million tax free dollars was for the elite Liberals and Torys’s again without a dime to the poor. There is nothing more disgusting than an elected official on the take smiling at the public with murder in his heart, that is Sheridan and Ghiz.
Ghiz closed the Legislature with a bunch of very hollow claims of what a great session it was. In this week alone the following issues occured
1. Crowbush Sale collapsed and is expected to be millions in legal fees.
2. PEI came out as the worst in North America in Grade nine level standardized testing.
3. UPEI admitted they are in a tailspin of economic losses.
4. PEI Property Development is at a standstill.
5. Official Unemployment jumped a full point.
Still Liberal polls show the Liberals will win power as the Opposition becomes further distressed, itself full of political appointees of Harpers who made personal fortunes on PNP.
Elected officials in PEI act in their party and personal interest, exclusively. Sheridan featured smiling about helping the poor can “go in the hell”, as they say in Quebec. The majority liberals operate like thugs and it is disgusting.
The terrible effects of pension reform by Robert Ghiz are little understood because of an ineffective opposition and Media watch. The Guardian newspaper, a Liberal rag is not expected to ever be critical or unflattering toward Ghiz and his gang. The poor pensioners have been alerted by the unions and they are all being trampled. Ghiz and his failed economic policies coupled with expensive gambling losses has no care in the world as he shoves through policy and tramples on democracy.
The pension reform legislation includes clauses to escape legal obligations, clauses unlikely to survive Constitutional law challenge. There are no lawyers or Judges in PEI who have any understanding of the Canadian Constitution so they all carry on role playing in blissful ignorance. The people are asleep?
It is such a lovely island, in the summer and all the people are so nice.
Wes Sheridan, another disgraced Minister of Robert Ghiz’ Liberal Cabinet went on CBC to spin a new definition of debt. Sheridan, as if he was in his right mind, offered a very confusing and illogical spin on what he calls “net debt”.
Premier Ghiz is currently tearing up all obligations the Province has to pensions and ramming through legislation as the pensioners watch in horror. Ghiz has been an absolute failure, particularly his house of cards financings. Sheridan has been the Minister of Finance for only 7 years and he has doubled the Provincial Debt to over 2 billion dollars.
Sheridan blames all the debt on his unseen economic stimulus spending to keep PEI safe from the 2008 World Financial collapse. In fact Ghiz distributed 500 million dollars to friends and party faithful in a corrupted immigration scam. The Ghiz team continues to lend millions out to party parasites like Kevin Murphy and Timmy Banks.
Wes Sheridan has heard consultant speak, but he cannot explain it or speak it. Consultant speak would allow one to claim “they are having a short term liquidity crisis”, which is just a way to admit you are broke. PEI is broke and Sheridan is a broken man under a heap of a mess in debt the Province will never see the end of. Funny eh?
Programme of International Student Assessment (PISA) scores demonstrate again PEI has the worst education program in Canada. PEI scores are the lowest in Canada and the only area in Canada to be under the International average scores. PEI has an education department on par with Botswana.
Since being elected the PEI Liberal Ghiz team have meddled with Education at every level and with little Public support.
These are the areas where a smaller have not province must excel and be an example for Canada. The disgraced Robert Ghiz Liberal team have doubled the debt, increased the taxes while health care and education erode further. Canada must be careful electing famous sons and Ghiz is the worst.
The federal Reform Harper Government is spending eight million dollars in advertising to disgrace the cell phone wireless providers while turning a blind eye to the excessive banking fees burden on Canadians. Harper is a pitch man now selling snake oil as what he refers to as “Consumers First Agenda” .
In the midst of total corruption in the Senate where the Prime Ministers Office is being dragged into the light, peddling influence through Senator Irving Gerstein. Harper spending this kind of money on targeted propaganda seems a bit much, indeed.
Harper will be travelling to Israel soon where they are naming a bird sanctuary after Harper, apparently Israel is very appreciative of Harper and his love of birds. Harper loves birds? To funny, no comment.
Canadian Banks are continuing record profits and fees are being continually heaped onto any accounts with less than a fortune in them. Harpers Cabinet is uniform in that they all want jobs from the banks and nobody wants to work as a telephone man. Consumers are not first with Harper feeding us pablum.
The PEI government in an attempt to sell Crowbush golf resort have seemingly deliberately misled the public on the land deals involved, although it appears any deal is about to cave in and buyers are very hesitant to complete the sale.
The sale has been terribly managed and details are leaking out everywhere. Red Like Me has learned directly from one of the parties involved and the particulars clearly evidence that Minister Henderson has stated misinformation to the Press. The Native Confederacy has also risen to seek fair treatment on the Crown lands involved.
Any land having been purchased by the Province would become Crown lands and Native Claims would have to be addressed, this has not been done at all. The buyers are very disturbed about huge due diligence fees and the continuing stumbling blocks rising up. The deal may be lost and it appears to be a messy deal thrown together by the Ghiz team, so naturally the fifth floor situation room is ignoring and denying any difficulty. The circumstances may give rise to several law suits against the Province.
It is the essential piece of a puzzle from Robert Ghiz and his corrupted PEI government, irresponsible fiduciary mismanagement has almost entirely bankrupted the province. Ghiz intends to pass legislation which will save the government from any liability in its “made in PEI pension reforms”, from Wes Sheridan. No grievances will be allowed from the Unions who have had the pensions gutted by Sheridan while the changes are being stuffed down their throats by Ghiz.
Absconding, leaving hurriedly and secretly to escape custody or arrest or accountability, the proposed measures betray the entire concept of Democracy and Law in Canada. This is the work of half wit lawyers in Charlottetown providing legislative advice on Ghiz, an arts student. The legislation is not expected to ever stand in court but that is how law is practiced in PEI, in irrelevance. “Go ahead and sue me and I will drag it out forever, it wlll cost you a fortune”, is the prevailing modus in Charlottetown.
Islanders should really be woken up. Ghiz has made a disaster of finances and now holds a law to allow him to abscond after Breach of Trust.
As the free world continues to be bullied to death in the name of 9 11 security requirements imposed in the name of homeland security, Harper plays the puppet for USA at G20 in Toronto. Sure, set up shop in your Ottawa fortress and spy on all the world leaders private conversations while we host the World Economic Summit, Harper may have offered.
The extent of carte blanche powers of the US to look through all Canadian banks was just invoked by Harper Reform. Sure, here is all our private records, see what you can find? Are we a colony of USA?
Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs, the bankers who made billions in the economic collapse, just paid a fine of billions without any charges or admitted fault, stated today Canadian currency will crash to eighty eight cents in the next few weeks. Goldman are of course a very due diligence intensive bunch of hucksters. Funny eh?
