The Liberal riding association in Guelph has been issued a $4,900 penalty by the federal broadcast regulator for sending out unsolicited robo-calls during the 2011 election campaign.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission announced the finding and penalty Friday.

It describes its notice of violation as being against the Guelph Federal Liberal Association on behalf of Frank Valeriote, who was the Liberal candidate who won the election and is currently an MP.
Oh... my... gawd... stand by for weeks of outraged media coverage as we get an actual conviction on the opposition's robo-calling accusations.

Ah, wait a minute... that's a secret...
The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to black out sections of the document, including the number of bullets being purchased, is likely to be related to a massive controversy which has snowballed over the last few weeks pertaining to concerns as to why the federal agency has purchased well over a billion rounds of bullets over the last 6 months alone.

The Forum Research poll released exclusively to the Toronto Sun found the recent spat of summer gun violence has left its mark on the city as 61% of Torontonians agree there has been more gun violence this year than in previous years and that 34% feel their personal safety is at risk in Toronto.
But, hey... screw opinions. Let's stick with digging up actual facts. Like, say... how many people in a city like Toronto are murdered with a legal, registered firearm... and should that number affect a patently laughable proposition to ban any and all guns within city limits?
“While we know statistics tell us violent crime is decreasing, that’s not the story the public tells us, and their anecdotal evidence just solidifies their fears,” Forum president Lorne Bozinoff said in a statement Saturday. “This may be behind the controversial desire to see race-based crime statistics.”
C'mon Lorne... aren't the numbers already age & gender based? I mean...are you saying it's okay to single out seniors or women? Isn't that agism AND sexism?

Why aren't we simply calling this "data-based" crime stats? Would that still be "controversial?" And if it turns out that suburban Lutheran soccer moms are responsible for the carnage... let's start staking out amateur sports venues and grocery stores.

If there is a way to identify a demographic responsible for a significant part of the mayhem and murder, and yes... much of the dying... and mount a response, that'd be a good thing... right? Whatever happened to serve & protect?

Thank gawd it's over

I've gotta confess... by the second day of the Olympics, I was watching the CTV coverage with the sound turned off. I'm afraid the last straw for me was when one of the networks self-styled experts started prattling on about the "ten event" Decathlon (as opposed to, I suppose, the five event version?)

Funny, though... didn't see any coverage of skeet, or any other shooting sport for that matter. I guess that falls outside of the politically correct world-view of our television overlords.

Also had a bit of a problem working up much enthusiasm for their over-the-top "social engineering" segments... like shamelessly trotting out wheelchair-bound Rick Hansen to be the resident "takes a village" shaman... or the endless enumeration of the various obstacles everyone apparently had to overcome to be an Olympic athlete.

Then there was the whole manufactured ecstasy about the Islamic woman competing in her make-shift burka... which conveniently skipped over the fact that she was, one... so obviously unqualified to even be there and two... had her brother glued to her substantial person to do all of the talking for her.

It was also CTV that trotted out the fact that Canada had started up a funding initiative for Olympic athletes that funnelled an additional 60 million dollars to training athletes who had the best medal prospects.

Hey, why not just go all in... and start scooping up talented toddlers and shipping them off to Olympic factories like the Chinese? Or recruiting athletes from less well-off countries with financial inducements?

I know I won't be wasting any more of my time watching this nonsense in another four years.
