PITY POOR Tecumsehbonesforbrains!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!


Why dont you go look up the old National Geographic magazines DETAILING exactly how "forest management" made wild fires in Yellowstone Park MUCH WORSE in the 1980`s !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Small, regular, controlled burbs are required to limit the size of wild fires!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And considering that the size of California wild fires has been GROWING in each of the past few years - just as the wild fires in Yellowstone grew year after year due to sloppy management - one has to wonder if Trump is ON TO THE TRUTH HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess you are one of the Senior Cadets then Doug?


And a lot of Cdns would be grateful if LIE-berals did ANYTHING about national security- EXCEPT IGNORE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Better border security so guns can not so easily be smuggled in would be nice!!!!!!!!!!!!


Some major efforts to track and punish fentanyl vendors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Some serious efforts to EVICT drug dealers, drug addled hookers and the assorted gang banger and criminals that infest our not so "affordable" and very definitely CRUMBLING housing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Even something simple like tracking the illegals that are swarming to our country would be nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





ANYTHING that would make us a little safer would be nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But LIE-berals SCORN such things!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Here is an article illustrating that LIE-berals are giving us utterly FAKE NEWS about our economy. With some comments of my own in brackets):

Toronto food bank usage at recession levels.

THE CANADIAN PRESS. FIRST POSTED: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2017 09:55 AM EDT | UPDATED: MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2017 04:28 PM EDT

TORONTO - Food bank visits in Canada’s most populous city are back up to levels seen after the last recession hit the country, with a spike in the number of seniors accessing their services in the last year, according to a report released Monday.

The Daily Bread Food Bank’s annual report shows that there were nearly one million food bank visits in Toronto between April last year and March this year. The figure is the highest number in the city since 2010, which is when the organization says the effects of the 2008 recession hit residents the hardest.

It also says people are relying on food banks longer than before with the average length increasing to 24 months in 2017, up from 12 months in 2010.

The numbers suggest a state of affairs that is not being captured by standard economic indicators, the food bank said.

(LIE-beral calculations on a host of things are deliberately skewed! For instance it was LIE-beral Jean Chretien who changed how full time work was measured- previously you were working `full time` if you had 40 hours per week- but to make the unemployment numbers look better LIE-berals decided you would be `fully employed` if you had 28 hours of work- and too bad if you cannot live on that! LIE-beral Chretien also monkeyed with rules for access to unemployment insurance thus allowing some people to fall off the govt radar and not be counted. LIE-beral claims regarding our economy are as suspect as their assurances that our massive debt is not a problem!)

“While we’re having this on-paper economic prosperity, we’re seeing many people who are falling out of the labour market due to age or disability or people who are struggling within the labour market because of the instability of the work that they’re getting,” said Richard Matern, Daily Bread’s director of research and communications.

(LIE-berals do Not want to discuss the fact that of those who retire voluntarily before age 65- two thirds are civil service Hogs with those fabulous pensions that are breaking our economy! Private sector simply cannot afford to retire in the luxury that Hogs wallow in! With the added bonus that LIE-berals INSIST that you retired voluntarily if you took the buy out from your collapsing industry because the buy out was better than staying on the job for another 6 months and then being thrown out with NOTHING!)

(LIE-berals completely ignore the tens of thousands of Cdns wh could anc would and quite often NEED to work- if only they could find a job in our debauched and over taxed economy! In an effort to handle their gross debts, LIE-berals have reduced interest rates to record lows and thus screwed millions of Cdns who are trying to live on meagre little pensions with utterly inadequate returns on investment that simply do NOT cover massive LIE-beral tax increases on EVERYTHING! It is the LIE-beral Carbon crap and trade scam that is behind much of the fiscal trouble and it is LIE-beral desire to cling to power at any price by buying Hog votes that is the other major economy killer!)

Though people 65 and over make up a relatively small proportion of food bank users, they have become the fastest-rising age group of clients, the report says. The number of seniors accessing food banks has gone up nearly 27 per cent since last year, compared with other age groups which have shown an increase between 14 and 18 per cent, it says.

(Greedy LIE-berals are willing to sneer at and dismiss poverty stricken seniors because LIE-berals regard them as sloppy and careless as they should have saved more for their old age- that LIE-berals have taxed Cdns so heavily that its not possible to save any significant pile of pennies is not understood by greedy LIE-berals! Nor do LIE-berals wish to discuss the massive flood of Hog pension money- all of it borrowed- and which ordinary people MUST pay back for entitled Hogs- that is gobbling up all decent investments! Hog pension fund managers with billions of dollars under their control have shoved aside ordinary Cdns trying to invest their pennies!)

“What we saw is what happens when there’s a group that’s on a fixed income and is particularly vulnerable to rising costs like we saw in Toronto in the areas of housing and in food, in certain cases,” Matern said.

“Many seniors, the most common reason that they’ve had to skip food for, they say, is rent and also prescription drugs,” he said.

(LIE-berals do not understand why stupid old folks do not move out of the city to some small town where its cheaper to live. LIE-berals forget that there is NO public transit in most towns in Canada and often no hospital either thanks to LIE-beral `economies` in health care either so as soon as a senior becomes ill an extended and costly trip BACK to the city and its health services is required! With the added bonus that moving away from the city means leaving behind friends and family to go into relative isolation out in the woods!)

“So many seniors who are of course less likely to be getting support from other sources or who are less likely to be able to get outside sources of income such as employment and also have greater health-care needs are more vulnerable to these types of changes in the economy around inflation.”

Wanda Morris, vice-president of advocacy for CARP, formerly known as the Canadian Association for Retired Persons, said the rise in food bank use among seniors is “a huge concern.”

One factor may be that seniors aren’t getting all the support they are entitled to, she said, particularly through the Guaranteed Income Supplement program.

Low-income seniors are eligible for the program if they receive Old Age Security, have an annual income below a specific threshold and have lived in Canada at least 10 years. But research shows thousands of seniors who qualify aren’t claiming it, Morris said.

“Part of the problem isn’t that there isn’t a program, it’s how do we get our most vulnerable seniors to take advantage of what is available for them,” she said, noting that many seniors don’t have internet access.

(OH GREAT! Who thinks it is a good idea for some senior to try to use a highly complex computer access system to access govt money- when they barely know how to turn the gizmo ON? Seniors are ALREADY prime target for scammers and hackers- and who wants to bet that there will be an explosion of fraud if seniors are encouraged to get on the net often with their banking and pension information? And there is ANOTHER REASON not to move to a small town- all govt service offices are in the big city- meaning you have to come back to the city to deal with them! AS seniors get more frail- small town life looks increasingly like a trap they cannot escape from without losing their shirts!)

(Seniors are also less than enthusiastic about selling their long time home and moving into cheaper rental accommodation as they are more likely to be exposed there to crime and violence, to bed bugs and cock roaches, to be badly in-convenienced when elevators fail and trap them without food or medication on the eight floor, to be stuck in the cold when heating systems or power fail for what may be weeks on end. In short, seniors figure they are better off to stay in their homes- the ones that fuzzy minded LIE-berals such as Mel Lastman WANT THEM OUT OF- for HIS convenience!)

She said housing costs are also an issue for people on a fixed income.

Daily Bread said its findings “reinforce the observation that the current system of income support is inadequate to deal with the labour market, economic realities and an aging population.”

(Hydro prices up 10- 20 percent per year, water rates up 5- 9 percent per year, food up 20 percent per year, property taxes up 2-3 percent per year- and with old age pension and supplements virtually FROZEN- and LIE-berals find it hard to understand why `stupid` seniors are having a difficult time!)

Two government initiatives — one provincial, one federal — may help alleviate the strain on low-income residents, Matern said.

Ontario’s basic income pilot project is being rolled out in several municipalities, including Hamilton and Thunder Bay, Ont., in an effort to reduce poverty. The federal government, meanwhile, is working on a national housing strategy meant to increase access to affordable homes.

(OH LIE-berals DO SO ENJOY making grand announcements that do not pan out- its just LIE-berals re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic! Its all bait and switch- money in one pocket and back out the other- a game LIE-berals long ago perfected!)

Matern said the food bank is asking Ottawa to ensure the strategy includes a portable housing benefit that would be given to tenants to help cover their rent.

(OH- a portable housing benefit? NO GOOD! That would mean NEW money for old folks- something LIE-berals will NOT offer as they will need ALL their gravy for Hog raises and for their new illegal friends flooding across our borders!)

“If that’s implemented, it would have a huge impact on helping to address the need,” he said.

The report is based on in-person surveys of more than 1,400 food bank clients and visit data from food banks across the city.

Regent Park revitalization $107 million in the hole

By Sue-Ann Levy, Toronto Sun. First posted: Sunday, January 29, 2017 01:22 PM EST . Updated: Sunday, January 29, 2017 01:35 PM EST

(With some comments of my own in brackets):

TORONTO - The $1-billion and counting 15-year Regent Park revitalization project is not even half done and already $107 million in the hole, the city’s budget committee heard last week.

According to a report to the Jan. 24 budget committee, the $107-million city bailout required to finish Phase 3 is only the start with another $182-million funding shortfall predicted (on a preliminary basis) for Phases 4 and 5 and $100 million-plus for another revitalization of Lawrence Heights.

The budget committee approved — with barely a whimper — a plan concocted by city finance staff to increase the annual capital subsidy to Toronto Community Housing Corp. (TCHC) by $6 million to help pay for the 339 social housing units that have yet to be built in Phase 3.

They also agreed to guarantee another $101.7 million in new debt that must be taken out to finance the Regent Park project.

TCHC spokesman Sara Goldvine confirmed Friday that the total amount spent and committed by the city and TCHC on Regent Park to date is $512.7 million, which includes the current bailout and offsite housing on Adelaide St. E.

The report to budget committee says quite clearly that the original vision for Regent Park — first approved in 2003 — was that proceeds from sales of market housing developed by the Daniels Corp., along with operating and capital maintenance savings and the city’s contribution to infrastructure, were supposed to pay for the revitalization.

I can’t say I’m the least bit surprised that this socialist utopia — which was to replace 2,000 units of decrepit social housing and place them alongside 2,800 market units — is in financial difficulties. As I revealed in a 2012 expose, the exact details of the 50-50 joint venture company between Daniels and TCHC created to build Phase 1 and the details of who paid what were murky even to the city’s auditor-deneral at the time.

(This stupidity on the part of Silly Hall staffers illustrates the standard result when civil service Hogs try to outsmart private sector! Hogs just don’t have what it takes NOT TO BE TAKEN! Silly Hall staff could not run a hamburger stand at a profit I if you gave them the beef for free!)

In 2012, TCHC officials repeatedly refused to respond to questions about whether the prime downtown land was handed over to Daniels Corp. for a nominal fee of $2, claiming it could “harm the interests” of TCHC and the city on future such developments.

(Oh right! WE would not want all developers to discover how easy it is to sucker govt! And we would not want the public to figure out that it would be more effective for Silly Hall to simply hand out housing aid directly to those in need and to SKIP the costly and muddled “affordable housing’ messes run by grossly lazy and greedy civil service Hogs that Toronto so often gets into! Metro Toronto Housing is the biggest slum lord in the country! Get Silly Hall OUT of the housing business and let it go bac k to private hands-with income CASH supplements offered DIRECTLY to those who really need them-that way if your building is a thug infested pig-pen you CAN MOVE AWAY! And greedy unions don’t get the opportunity to bleed us dry!)

The best I was able to ascertain at the time was that $86 million had been given to Regent Park in 2009 and 2010 — raised through debt — to help pay for the construction and the city had waived $7.8 million in in development fees and property taxes, at least in the early days.

City spokesman Wynna Brown claimed Friday that the development charges are being paid by the condo owners -she didn’t specify whether that was indeed the developer.

(Should we ask: if Brown doesn’t know or doesn’t WANT to know”? Because knowing might make her feel bad?)

Councillor Shelley Carroll — while contending that it wasn’t “unusual” to have to top up funding for a revitalization — did try to ask interim CEO Greg Spearn on Jan. 24 whether there’s been an accounting of what’s been delivered by the private partner (Daniels Corp.) on its financial promises and the exact amount the city has put into the project.

(The city is replacing older structures previously built by the city with brand new structures also built by the city-just HOW MANY SURPRISES can there be in such a situation?)

Spearn responded that 109 reports have been provided to the board on Regent Park since 2003 and a consolidated “roll-up” to date was just relayed to city CFO Rob Rossini and will be given to their board.

He offered no figures in response to Carroll’s questions.

Instead Spearn blamed the increased accessibility requirements needed in their units and rising construction costs due to a “robust real estate market.”

(The price of housing is rising-SO WHAT? The city OWNS the land ALREADY! What new costs can they encountering?)

“There was always an anticipation in council reports that Regent Park would have a ‘hole’ but now the chickens are coming to roost so to speak,” he told budget committee.

(Again I : WHAT can this `hole` be from? Other than fiscal mismanagement?)

It would appear Regent Park’s latest “affordable” units aren’t that affordable to build either. According to the city report, the costs for the outstanding Phase 3 units range from $294,853 to $301,049 per unit.

REGENT PARK AND ITS FISCAL WOES

Revitalization, a partnership between TCHC, city and Daniels Group
Supposed to take 15 years
Supposed to be six phases
Original cost was $1-B
City has put $512.7-M into project to date
Cash injection includes $107.7 ($101.7 in new debt) approved at budget committee last week
City predicts at least a $182-M shortfall on Phases 4 and 5

(No doubt that $182 -M shortfall is as wrong as every other off by at least 25 percent Silly Hall GUESS-timate! How is it that Silly Hall is ALWAYS at least 25 percent OFF with All its budgets fo building anything?)

Will house 2,083 replacement rent-geared-to-income units- 1,817 on-site and 266 in east downtown.
Will house 5,000 private market condominium units- original concept was 3,000 units.

(Hold it-Silly Hall gets a total of 2400 units and the private sector gets FIVE THOUSAND units? And Silly Hall STILL comes up hundreds of millions SHORT? And the private sector makes a profit while Silly Hall runs around looking for MORE MONEY? Is this not proof positive that Silly Hall should NOT be in the housing business?)

Includes new parks, aquatic centre, arts and culture centre, retail space.

(OH that`s nice- a swimming pool and a place to hang crap modern art the city has bought. Or maybe they will simply re-assemble Cloaca since it’s a leftover from that other fiasco Harbourfront- Cloaca is the larger than life size model of a human digestive system complete with fully functioning asshole!)

Phase 1 done
Phase 2 is nearing completion and includes Paintbox, One Park Place (two towers) with 1,062 market condo units
Phase 3 currently in progress and will include Regent Park Athletic Grounds, 2,000 market condos and 600 social housing units
As of September 2016, a total of 1,271 TCHC households have been relocated in Phases 1, 2, and 3.

(I guess we can assume the city will be paying for re-location of Regents Park residents-certainly the developers don’t seem to have needed to dig to deep to pay THEIR WAY!)

Hey STB why is Toronto putting any money in this project it should have been done as a P3 project with a hard bottom line with clear objectives. A percentage of the for profit condos returned to pay for the affordable ones with the P3 recouping their costs through rent on the affordable housing. Easily been negotiated with a $2 land sale. Unbelievable

I also didn't realize why are we discussing this in the military thread Lol

================================================== ================================================== ====


Why are we discussing housing in this military discussion?


it is simple- LIE-berals keep changing the subject to try and fail to escape from points they cannot refute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Our national security issues are wrapped up in LIE-beral spending policy and social priorities- which is LIE-beral speak for BUYING



VOTES so they can cling to power at any price!


LIE-berals consider not so "affordable housing" to be an essential need- because they wish to fill that housing with illegals and assorted other organized crime figures and future terrorists!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



The more money LIE-berals waste on stupid stuff- the less money there is for other items- like the military!


As for the Regents Park money pit- IT IS A PPP- with the developer making most of the money and the city picking up the short falls!!!!!!!!!!!


It is a replay of the Bombardier TTC streetcar contract which is filled with weasel clauses that allow Bombardier to basically produce the Toronto street cars whenever they feel like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It is the usual crap that occurs when LIE-berals do deals with private sector- LIE-berals get educated in how much they do not know



or understand about business- and the contractor makes A LOT OF MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And the pace Bombardier is working at indicates they are saving the street car work for whenever they run out of other work for private biz- none of which would be stupid enough to sign the kind of contract that Toronto has with Bombardier!


Let me point out yet again- that LIE-berals could not run a chip truck at a profit- not even if you gave them the potatoes for free!!!!!!



So the city of Toronto got hold of many of the TCHC buildings in the 1980`s by DELIBERATE THEFT of private property!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It is surprising how quickly and easily LIE-berals can trample on our civil rights when the need suits them!!!!!!!!!



Does the name Bill Player mean anything to people these days????????????


Player was a financier who put together a package of rental properties- containing 11,000 apartment units in Toronto- for a Saudi



Arabian consortium who wanted to diversify Saudi economic holdings by investing in something besides oil- and Toronto rental



properties looked good -if only a way around rent controls could be found- since ALL the rental buildings needed major repairs! And



doesnt THAT SOUND FAMILIAR?????????????



So Player created a series of holding companies who each bought and then sold the apartments to each other so the value of the



buildings would be artificially inflated- a higher mortgage allowed for higher rent increases of course!


And all the buildings NEEDED MAINTENANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


New windows, new doors, new heating systems, new roofs etc!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So an artificial increase in value with resulting higher rents would allow for that necessary work to be done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AS a kid- I recall living briefly in a Toronto low rise apartment and being morbidly fascinated by the boiling hot wall -right beside the



kitchen light switch! Some of the pipes feeding hot water from the boilers to the radiators had rusted out and let boiling water leak



down through four floors of the building!



Things got so bad that all the ground floor ceilings had to be replaced- and they simply diverted the leaking water into drains in the basement........replacing the heating system was a major cost that rent controls did not allow for!!!!


And I recall exploring a 26 story high rise building on nearby Redpath Ave around 1990- and the ENTIRE TOP FLOOR WAS EMPTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


No renters, no furniture, nothing but fallen plaster, empty rooms filled with mildew and mould, puddles everywhere and most of the electrical outlets and lights shorted out- from the ROTTEN OLD ROOF!



A very creepy, post apocalyptic vision of a world after humanity is gone!!!



This was apparently the standard condition of a lot of Toronto rental stock!!!!!!!!!!!!



Anyway- govt smelled a rat on the Player deal and the deal fell through when Player was arrested!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And city of Toronto basically CONFISCATED the buildings from former owners by putting so many work orders onto the buildings and freezing their rents that they became basically worthless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The buildings never did get any real maintenance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Just a series of licks and promises!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



For a number of decades afterwards some Toronto rental properties went through a revolving door process- with a holding company



buying the building cheap because it was run down- and then letting all the bills pile up while they kept the all the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Eventually once the company had milked the situation thoroughly- the company would declare "bankruptcy" and walk away with its



pocket full of cash- leaving property taxes and emergency repair bills and bills for heating and lighting unpaid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The city would take over the building for back taxes owing and auction it off- to a new holding company started by the same old



owners of the previous holding company and the process of stripping assets and leaving debts would begin again!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But our civil service union Hogs are grossly greedy -but not stupid- so they cottoned on and began making their own bids on the buildings and so Toronto Housing Authority was born - amidst LIE-beral LIES and deception!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals have been filling the buildings with their bad immigration choices and with illegals and fakes and frauds and drug dealers and addicts and hookers ever since!



So in related news- why will LIE-berals not allow foreigners into the military?


Because NATO would not accept such people serving with them- for fear of being stabbed in the back or having major plans betrayed



to enemies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But LIE-berals can break the bank importing people who hate the west and want to see it destroyed or at least humiliated - and



planting them in TCHC SLUMSl!!!!!!!!!!


Can you imagine the political MESS if some "Cdn" soldier sold off a couple of Cdn anti aircraft missiles to terrorists???????????


And yes- I KNOW Cdn military equipment is obsolete and would not worry the latest generation of Russian fighters- but a civilian air



liner is NOT so well protected and picture the carnage if a missile brought down a fully fueled 747 into a residential area shortly after takeoff!


So there WILL NOT be any Cdn Foreign Legion!


The French CAN get away with it because they are prepared to instantly EXECUTE anybody who steps out of line!!!!!!!!!!!!!


IF a French Legionaire steps out of line its hard labour or a bullet in the head!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Our LIE-berals just make foreigners live in St Jamestown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

is a replay of the Bombardier TTC streetcar contract which is filled with weasel clauses that allow Bombardier to basically produce the Toronto street cars whenever they feel like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It sounds like that purchasing process is run by retired DND procurement people. They are like the proprietors of Monty Python's Cheese Shop. After employing every possible excuse, we find that, in fact, there is no cheese.

They had zero and didn't need no steenkin military GPS. It's nice to know there is a back up system for when they screw up the civvy navigation systems, which they will do certainly in time of war.

Geez, what do you think X (the cross) Caliber (.00 ) means? Why do we say to CROSS THE OCEAN?

Not to mention the time I save cutting a roof when I am framing a building. Laying out footings and courses are easy with this item.


Any how I say let non nationals join the military then make them fight their home country.

So we aren't being racist.
