Ask your local MPP

We suggested earlier that it might be interesting to ask London-Fanshawe MPP Khalil Ramal about his role as Parliamentary Assistant to Mike Colle, the former Ontario Minister of Citizenship and Immigration who resigned after his ministry was caught awarding $32.5 million in grants to various ethnic and cultural associations in a process that Auditor General Jim McCarter found "was not open, transparent or accountable."

Well, John Wilson did just that on his Focus 980 radio program last Friday:

… Ramal admitted he had himself directed grants to organizations. When pressed on where the money came from for such obviously non-critical projects, he said it was "extra" money, "left over" from other departments.

Under Wilson’s prodding he went on to confess the funds were so poorly managed because his department was new to the grant process and "we didn’t know how to spend the money".
But no politician or bureaucrat will ever let ignorance get in the way of their obligation to spend the money, come paltry excuse or high water! Besides, knowing how to spend it is purely a secondary consideration after knowing how to get it.

They are never going to ask for that money back. The liberals are just going to find a more creative way to steal taxpayer money to buy votes.

Taliban tv is in hot water again.I was reading the national post this morning. There is an article in there on how after an apology from the head honcho's of Vision tv for airing a jihadist preacher, calling up the faithful to kill Jews/infidels, they go and put on a Turkish muslim author Mr. Oktar, with the same views.

I think Vision tv is going to be hard pressed to find a muslim in a position of power who does not wish the Jews, and we infidels dead.

Vision tv gives me the creeps, no matter whose god they are markerting on their weekly series. There is big money in selling gods, but ewwwwwwww to think there are people out there that take it seriously.
