The offer presented to CBC required an investment ranging from $10,000 for two tickets to $100,000 to sponsor the head table. CBC refused to release the amount they paid to the foundation but the contract shows they purchased a table of 10 plus two single tickets.

The agreement, costing taxpayers somewhere between the quoted prices of $35,000 and $110,000, also called for Suzuki to be granted interviews on CBC shows to profile his life and his film.

Miller’s annual report also slammed the Liberals for gutting the ministry through budget cuts and regulatory changes that weaken important safeguards for provincial parks, species at risk and hunting.

Cuts to regulations, staff and programs at the ministry are “short-sighted and regressive” and pose significant ecological risks, he said. It could have “disastrous results” for Ontario’s natural heritage and disrupt the way of life in the north.

“We’re talking about handing over this land to third parties over which we have no control,” Miller said. “So it’s profound change on the highest level.”

The good news here is that somebody walks away with a billion dollar windfall.

"When Mr. McGuinty pulled the plug on the Oakville plant in the fall of 2010, Auditor-General Bonnie Lysyk found, the Liberals did not take advantage of contract provisions that protected the province from having to compensate TransCanada Corp., the energy giant given the job of building it. Instead, Mr. McGuinty’s aides assured TransCanada it would receive the entire value of the contract."

"Under the contract, the government had no legal obligation to compensate TransCanada for lost profits in the event that the company could not complete the project."

“'It may well have been possible for the OPA to wait it out, with no penalty and at no cost,' Ms. Lysyk says in her report."
Couldn't have that, could we.

Airbrushing the Politburo

All that carefully crafted spin... surely you don't think any part of that is a happy accident...

Why would anyone enamored enough with an Obama administration they want to go work for do anything that might make a potential employer uncomfortable -- you know, like actually report on ObamaCare and the economy honestly, or dig into Benghazi and the IRS?

The media is left-wing and crusading enough without the potential of a cushy government job being held out as a carrot.

And don't think the Obama administration isn't doling out these jobs for a reason. What a wonderful message to send to the world of media: Don't go too far, don't burn a bridge, don't upset us too much and there just might be a lifeline off the sinking MSM ship.
Despite employing all the "media guerillas" to shape the message... Americans are starting to wise up...
"Americans' trust and confidence in the federal government's ability to solve problems internationally as well as domestically has fallen to historic lows this year."
Unfortunately, it's too late to do anything about the horrendous economic damage the Obamacrats have already wreaked on the land. You can only move forward... hopefully in a more responsible manner.

There is a message in here for Canadians. Will short memories and a craving for celebrity allow us to elect the son of the man who, over the course of his reign, increased the deficit by a factor of ten?


Sex, Lies and alleged Videotape

Okay, so there's no sex. You'll have to settle for a murder.

-- TORONTO -- A 62-year-old man was found slain in front of a home in a middle class North York neighbourhood Thursday [excerpting twaddle about locking down local high school].

Officers responded to 37 Francine Dr., near Leslie St. and McNicoll Ave., around 9 a.m. and located the mortally wounded victim on the front porch.

“He appeared to be suffering from stab wounds,” Const. Wendy Drummond said. Police immediately suspected the man had been murdered [striking more yip-yap about the school lockdown, including a hastily dispatched rent-a-cop].

Homicide detectives stopped by the scene for a brief look around and soon after officially deemed the man’s death a murder, the city’s 41st killing of the year.

The victim’s name was not released.
You want useful information, maybe he had a Facebook page. Alright, alright, there's a process here... we need to protect people's privacy.

Unless, of course, it's notorious drug lord Pablo Ford.

Police say an accident is what led to the murder of 62-year-old Anthony Koko Chang. 24-year-old Kimnarine Keshan Maharaj has been charged with second-degree-murder.

Det Kate Beveridge says the two got into an accident on Mount Pleasant Rd, near Roehampton Ave, last Tuesday.

"But given the high profile of the people involved, and how the rumours went viral, the decision to pound away on this speculative & destructive path for weeks on end made perfect business sense."
Sure, he's big and loud and nobody's idea of a leading man... a perfect reason to suspend due process and simple decency.

It was a turning point for the campaign. She was mocked as a lightweight. She lost.

COMPARE & CONTRAST:
Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind," written in 1962, hit No. 2 on the Billboard charts just before the crowd gathered in Washington. When the folk-music trio Peter, Paul and Mary sang the song for the 250,000 people in front of the Lincoln Memorial that day, it became an interracial anthem for change. The song itself drew inspiration from two others: The lyrics brought to mind Woody Guthrie's "Bound for Glory," which included an allegory about newspapers blowing down city streets, and its melody came from a slave protest song called "No More Auction Block."

Sam Cooke, the black gospel and rhythm-and-blues singer began performing the Dylan song immediately after the march. He had been working on a song about the hurt he felt as a black man living with racism yet also with hope for better times. In December 1963, Cooke recorded "A Change Is Gonna Come." The song became a hit on black radio, another anthem of yearning for a nation without racial rancor.

Now, half a century after the lyrical promise of that inspiring music and poetry, there is the inescapable and heartbreaking contrast with the malignant, self-aggrandizing rap songs that define today's most popular music.

In Jay-Z's current hit, "Holy Grail," he sings about "psycho bitches" and uses the n-word seven times while bragging that he is "Living the life . . . Illest [n-word] alive." Another top rapper, Lil Wayne, released a song in the spring with an obscenity in the title, using the n-word repeatedly and depicting himself as abusing "hoes" and "bitches."

Similar examples abound in the rap-music world and have persisted for years with scarcely any complaint from today's civil-rights leaders. Their failure to denounce these lyrics for the damage they do to poor and minority families—words celebrating tattooed thugs and sexually indiscriminate women as icons of "keeping it real"—is a sad reminder of how long it has been since the world heard the sweet music of the March on Washington.
Progress? Methinks not.
