Toronto Star Lays Off Classified Department

TORONTO STAR BEGINS PROCESS OF DIVERTING JOBS TO BUFFALO, NEW YORK

According to the Communications,Energy And Paperworkers Union of Canada, The Toronto Star has contracted out its’ advertising department requirements to an AMERICAN FIRM that will now perform the duties of selling classified ads to Canadians instead of CANADIAN workers doing that job. Many longstanding employees will lose their positions and will be left in the cold as a result of the Toronto Star decision to axe their positions in favour of American workers.
A firm in Buffalo, New York was hired to replace more than 25 unionized workers in a bid to apparently save 1.5 million dollars annually. The union representing the workers disputes this claim stating that the employees collectively at best earn only 1.3 million per year.
The Star recently shed more than 35 full time long time advertising positions in an effort to shore up sagging advertising revenues.
Similar situations are spreading across the entire media industry as the global recession continues its melting down of all global economic activities.


And, The Final News Of The Day

WHAT DOES WOODSTOCK DO WITH ALL OF ITS’ RECYCLING AND WHERE DOES THIS END UP?
Well, there isn’t too much to say about this except for the headline.
I wonder what the city engineer has to say about Woodstocks’ recycling program?(I will assume nothing as it is near to impossible to get an answer from this guy for anything…perhaps he just has no clue)
From what I am told, the mass majority of our recycling is LANDFILLED just like Torontos’ is. I wonder if anyone can provide any details otherwise?

CONServatives Take Lead In Polls…Thanks To Your Tax Dollars

CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT USES YOUR TAX DOLLARS TO GAIN POLLING ADVANTAGE
The federal CONservative government is off on its’ annual summer barbecue tour handing out monstrous cheques to anyone who will promise to vote CONservative in the next election. with that comes news that as the spending increases, so does Stephen Harpers’ standing in the polls! CONServative pundits believe that if Mr Harper could only spend another $100 billion or so he may win his first majority government.
While many Canadians are using food banks to survive the Conservative MP’s of Stephen Harpers’ government are fanning out across the country eating barbequed beef, pork and chicken and carrying fat cheques emblazoned with CPC slogans that they can hand out at any opportunity if a vote is thought to be had.
Canadians lined up at one of Canadas’ many food banks may see the giant cheques roll by on tractor trailers while waiting for their daily bread and water.
Conservatives are spending tax resources on art galleries for the rich while poor unemployed people stand by staring at the processions of tuxedo clad hobknobbers on their way to another CONservative gala event, or barbeque.
Way to go Stevie! You’re doing an awesome job running the country.

As a result thousands of Han Chinese have taken to the streets with machetes, wood clubs and knives to exact revenge upon the Muslim population.
The western city of Urumqi is known as a Muslim majority region in northern China.

Ottawa Mayor "Doesn’t Make Sense"..Go Figure, He’s A CONservative

OTTAWA MAYORS’ TRIAL CONCLUDES TODAY
Ottawa Mayor Larry O’Briens criminal trial for influence peddling will conclude today after final arguments are made to the judge.
According to the crown prosecutor in the case Scott Hutchison, Larry O’Briens’ version of events just cannot possibly be believed when one considers all the facts in the case.
“Mr. O’Brien’s version he gave to police simply doesn’t make sense when you test its points of departure against the objective proof you have before you”, hutchison told the judge who is hearing the case.
O’Brien stated to police during their investigation that he did offer a National Parole Board position to his mayoral rival if his rival, Terry Kilrea agreed to step aside during the 2006 mayoral race. He also stated to the police that he dropped the matter after discovering “it may be illegal”.
Personally, I wonder why Mr O’Brien would have thought he had the clout and connections within the federal CONservative party to even offer the position in the first place?

Parliamentary Secretary says "Harper Underestimated The Seriousness Of Recession"

HARPER ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL…PARLIAMENTARY WATCHDOG
According to Kevin Page (the parliamentary watchdog), Prime Minister Harper “got it all wrong” when estimating the impact of the recession on Canada.
Page says that the Prime Minister failed to see the depth of the impact of the global recession on Canada when he and finance minister Flaherty released their January economic progress report and that Harpers’ guarantee that Canada would stoip running deficits in 5 years “was completely unbelievable”.
In his report that will be released later on this week, Page states that Canada wshould be prepared to lose more than 1.2 million jobs this year alone, more than double the predictions of the PM and Finance Minister.
For 2010 the Stephen Harpers’ conservative government has predicted a loss of perhaps 200,000 jobs at the most, while real economists predict that number to be in the realm of 700,000 jobs at the minimum.
The finance ministers’ parliamentary secretary acknowledges that the finance ministers’ predictions are wrong and that the government now acknowledges that things could get much worse for Canadians.

Ewwww…A Monica Lewinski Joke

OH C’MON…LAUGH, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO
Monica Lewinsky was walking on the beach when she found a lantern washed up on the shore. She started to rub it and out popped a genie.
“Oh goodie, now I will get three wishes!” she exclaims. “No,” said the genie, “You have been very bad in recent years, and because of this, I can only give you one wish.””Let’s see,” says Monica, “I don’t need fame, because I have plenty of that due to all of the media coverage. And I don’t need money, because after I write my book, My TV show, and do all my interviews, I’ll have all the money I could ever want. I would like to get rid of these love handles, though…Yes, that’s it, for my one wish, I would like my love handles removed.” POOF!!!! And just like that… her ears were gone!
