LIE-berals DO NOT wish to discuss the fact that job creation in Ontari-owe HAS BEEN CENTRED on Toronto/GTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Rural areas HAVE NOT recovered from the 2008 mortgage melt down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !



Nor do LIE-berals wish to admit the economic impact of their insane debts on our economy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals now tell us that people working 28 hours per week should be considered as "full time" employees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This in spite of the fact you cannot live on 28 hours work at a McJob in Canada!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Here is yet another article illustrating how much contempt our LIE-beral overlords have for us all. With some comments of my own in brackets):

New $10.2-M women's shelter panned by residents

By Sue-Ann Levy

Published: April 28, 2019. Updated: April 28, 2019 4:00 PM EDT

Filed Under: Toronto SUN/ News/ Toronto & GTA

Two women who’ve been staying in the new Davenport Rd. shelter claim it’s nothing more than a “warehouse” where women are shoved together dormitory-style with no privacy, no supports, no television or radio, poor airflow, under-cooked food and apathetic shelter workers.

(This of course is the LIE-beral reality- that there is an growing army of people who fit the Ebenezzer Scrooge definition of “surplus population”! And LIE-berals are now building “work houses” to contain the “surplus”!! Its like a Sci-Fi movie script- how long before Ontari-owe Works moves from cooperating with volunteers over to another model where “clients” are COMPELLED to take work as required by the overlords????????????????????)

The $10.2 million it cost to purchase and renovate the shelter - rivaling the $11.5-million Shelter and Assessment Centre on Peter St. — or the equivalent of $185,000 per client.

That doesn’t include operating costs of $105 per bed per night for the 59 women — four over capacity — at the shelter.

(At $105 per night- that is over $38 grand per year- would we not be better off just FIRING all the poverty pimps and simply paying “clients” that $38 grand and letting them fend for themselves????????????????????????????)

(The numbers are staggering- and illustrate how costly is it to involve our civil service union HOGS in ANYTHING!!For a $185,000 grant and ongoing expenses of $105 per night- adjusted for inflation each year- a person could move to Chatham or Eliot Lake and BUY a nice little cond and live very nicely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Yet the women say the YWCA-operated shelter — open since late January — has no kitchen, requiring managers to bring in food, which some residents complain is often under cooked and inedible.

Residents at the Davenport Rd. shelter have complained about under-cooked food and the amount of time it takes for repairs to be done.

Greg Seraganian, spokesman for the city’s shelter, support and housing division, says a full kitchen and dining area will be added during Phase 2 of the renovations planned for the shelter, which will also increase capacity to 78 beds.

(So how come they didnt do the kitchen reno at the same time as the other work? Was it civil service union HOG desire to split up the bills to make the job LOOK less costly??????????????????)

Those renovations are targeted to commence this summer.

Heather, who didn’t want her last name used because she hopes to go back to teaching, says there is very little privacy — with small barriers between every two dorm beds.

The wheelchair-bound woman says the accessible washroom went 18 days without a light bulb before it was fixed -forcing her to shower every two days at a friend’s place- and the toilet on the fourth floor was only repaired after 51 days.

(Ah- she is a teacher in a wheel chair- and unemployed- this is how tight our economy has become as LIE-berals spend us into bankruptcy!! There is simply NO economic ROOM for us all and anybody with a flaw or weakness is disposable!! Roughly 15,000 people graduate each year from Teachers College- but only about 5,000 can find teacher jobs- the rest are out of luck!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Residents at the Davenport Rd. shelter have complained about under-cooked food and the amount of time it takes for repairs to be done.

(One has to wonder if people would not be better off if they were simply handed out housing vouchers and allowed to sort out their own accommodation? Certainly there are landlords and hotel owners who would welcome that govt money?? Or maybe not as too many homeless and welfare clients are drugged, drunk or insane- meaning they are NOT acceptable to most landlords- and the crazies ruin it all for everybody else!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(However it is an ugly reality that too many ordinary people are finding themselves squeezed out of work and home!! LIE-berals boast that our economy is growing at 1.5 percent and ignore the reality that our population is growing at closer to 3 percent!! In proportion to the population- our economy is actually SHRINKING!! So much for our “booming” economy!!!!!!!!!)

(And the real issue here is how many of the new arrivals to Canada are coming in either as illegals or on the “family reunification” policy- meaning easily two thirds of the new arrivals LACK the ability to survive here without govt aid!! These illegals and unsuitable ones are eating into our savings!! We should be saving for our kids education and for our old age - NOT BLINDLY borrowing to pay for the illegals that LIE-berals hope will vote for them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Shelter housing manager of business intelligence Heath Priston says the delays are “somewhat accurate” and blamed the challenges on converting the building from its former commercial use to a residence. He said water pressure in the building has been “the most significant issue.”

Debi Okane and her two service dogs ended up there after a fire in her apartment on March 1. She left the fire in just slippers and a nightgown and says she’s gotten little help with donations of new clothes. When Okane asked for help with housing, she says she was handed a posting from the internet for co-ops for rent.

(Two service dogs? What is the deal with this woman?? As for finding her a new place to live- we all know there isnt much for those with NO MONEY!!!!!!!!!!)

Seraganian said the city’s new shelter standards require staff to provide support services upon admission (or within 24 hours) and to work with clients to document a service plan (within seven days of admission).

(The plan remains the same- stack `em up in the govt run warehouse!!!!!!!!!!!!)

But personal support worker Rita DiBiasi, who has advocated for many homeless women, says she had to buy and collect underwear, pants and t-shirts for Okane after the shelter gave her only a pair of oversized pajamas — even though they are supposed to have a donation room.

Okane says the population of women consists of those from 80-plus years (who should be in nursing homes) to youth who have come out of the criminal justice system.

(Not only is govt rationing our health care- it is also rationing access to old folks homes too!! One has to wonder how much new health care cash would become available - and how many existing problems could be cured if only our civil service union HOGS were finally COMPELLED to pay the health levy just like the rest of us????)

“There’s nothing for people to do (except for WiFi on the first floor) … no social activities,” she said. “So people learn to do the jailhouse shuffle or sleep.”

(Keeping busy is a serious problem for surplus population! Which is why HOGS will eventually harden their hearts and put the surplus to some work- in the best Sci-Fi Brave New World fashion!! It is not acceptable to HOGS that surplus people syphon off so much HOG GRAVY for nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

She says they’re being warehoused. She was appalled that $3 million was spent on the first phase of renovations and says she can smell mold coming up from the basement.

Heather, who writes short stories to help keep sane, says she’s witnessed sex between residents right in the open. She’s found needles on the floor a couple of times and people have done drugs in the accessible washroom, she adds.

But Nina Gorka, director of shelters, girls and family programs at the YWCA, insists that if sex was occurring between any residents, it would be addressed in a “timely manner” by shelter staff.

(Uh huh- and has staff decided that clients having sex are better for HOGS than clients standing around bitching about food and jobs and broken stuff?????????)

Gorka added in an e-mail response that the shelter is part of a harm reduction program. Nevertheless, residents are not permitted to use drugs in common spaces. If they do, staff would address that immediately, she says.

“It is an accessible space for everyone … safer (drug) use and safer (needle) disposal are important for everyone in the community,” Gorka said.

COMPLAINTS FALL ON DEAF EARS

Shelter users Heather, who does not want her last name used, and Debi Okane say many of the workers at the new YWCA-operated Davenport Rd. shelter are “bullies” who threaten to kick out those who speak up or lodge complaints.

It’s a theme I’ve heard on a recurring basis from residents of other Toronto shelters.

(One can appreciate the HOG position- they know well what will happen to them if HOG jobs are killed off!! And Hogs know that NOTHING is going to change so long as LIE-berlas are in charge- so they are covering their own backsides and shuffling through the day in a haze of boredom and frustration- Hogs are serving a penance of their own doing these useless jobs that carry the contempt of the public even as the jobs supply grand gravy to Hogs and the conflicting feelings of getting their greed satisfied while also carrying public contempt make them CRANKY!!!!!)

Heather says the Davenport Rd. workers have no empathy for her health issues, which come from three rare diseases, and insisted on assigning a woman who’d verbally and physically abused her at the Adelaide Women’s drop-in to a bed right beside her.

(Sounds like a certain sentiment operating- that of “don’t go away mad, just GO AWAY”! Surplus people can disappear like that and “whiners” are not welcome in HOG run facilities because Hogs have the right to work in an environment “free of hostility”!! Too bad there is public hostility all around them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“The associate manager said that if I didn’t like it, I could just go elsewhere,” says Heather, who has written several e-mails to all city councillors and the mayor about her concerns, in addition to filing complaints.

Nina Gorka, director of shelters, girls and family programs at the YWCA, did not get back to the Toronto Sun on the bullying issue; however, from Shelter housing manager of business intelligence Heath Priston, of the city’s shelter and housing division, said his department asks those with “feedback” to contact them directly if the service provider does not resolve their concerns.

Rita DeBiasi, an advocate for homeless women, says DeBiasi and Okane have gone to Mayor John Tory’s office on more than one occasion to lodge their complaints — which were supposed to be passed on to the city’s shelter housing division.

“Nothing got resolved,” said DeBiasi.

(And what is there to do? The clients need a job and a life and an affordable place to live- and these are all things LIE-berals are DESTROYING with their insane debts and frantic vote buying so they can cling to power at any price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

After all, why pay for a ft worker with benefits, when a part time or casual with none will do. And if they quit, another will replace them because people still need to work.
Least, that's my thoughts on the subject.
Jobs are jobs, sure, but in the end, it doesn't matter to the employer who is there, just so long as someone is.

Millenials would rather get 30 hours and have more personal time than go for the bennys.

The IMF cut Canada's growth outlook — but Deloitte says its forecast is still too optimistic

Canada’s growth prospects are bleaker than they were at the start of 2019, according to the International Monetary Fund’s latest outlook, which lands amid speculation over whether a global recession is coming.

The IMF cut its growth estimate for Canada to 1.5 per cent in 2019, down from its previous estimate of 1.9 per cent growth in January, according to the World Economic Outlook report published Tuesday.

Wow. I'm impressed. Someone else gets why we had the tarrifs put on Canada. Trump should have pushed harder against the devaluation of the CAD though.

Of course if certain Canadian companies had not been importing Chinese steel and selling it in the US as Canadian products we would never have been in this position.

I tried explaining that. I even went as far as posting Canadian tarrifs that were higher than those put up by Trump. The Liberal geniuses forgot to factor in our discounted dollar. All Trump did was close that gap.

Sorry bud but you shit the bed.

Check the CITT Canada website research when and against whom we hit with steel tarrifs and do some math taking the devalued CAD into consideration as well as the cheaper shipping to W. Canadian ports.

Even with Canadian tarrifs put in a few months before the US it wasn't enough.

It's all there on the CITT website if you look.

The good news is that there are no longer American socialist tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum which can only help what is already the best Canadian economy in 40 years.

It wasn't just price but quality of offshore steel.

But now LIE-berals tell us that we are "fully employed" if we have 28 hours of work per week - at some TRULY CRAP WAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AS usual- LIE-berals DO NOT RESPOND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



LIE-berals INSIST that crime in Canada is falling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


If that is true then why is Canada getting such an UGLY REPUTATION for money laundering and assorted investment fraud????????



If crime in Canada is falling as LIE-berals claim!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


Then why are Fraud artists beating down our doors and wearing out our telephones in a RELENTLESS EFFORT to sucker us?????????????



AS always - LIE-berals DO NOT RESPOND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


LIE-berals have reached such a state of bewildered stupidity that they have even stopped calling us Racists...........FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What could have been the best economy in 40 years if trudOWE haddn't fukked it up. Our dollar being about on par with the peso is the only reaon there is any manufacturing left in OntariOWE. Gas would still be under $1 a litre if not for trudOWE.
