Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne made a key announcement today. Media expected she would comment on Brits voting to pull out European country club. Nope! Some thought she would react to Tiger Cats besting Argo’s last night in first game of the new CFL season. Nope!
Would she review why she recently tweaked her cabinet? No way Jose! Ah, thought the press, she would comment on OPP probes of her government or the province’s ballooning billions in Canuck bucks deficit. Wrong again.
Surprise surprise after announcing months ago 12 packs of beer would be sold in some Ontario grocery stores…….she did it again. Are you ready?
CIDER will be sold in yes you guessed it, in some grocery stores. In making the shell game announcement, we imagine, it was designed to turn attention away from her government’s plight to something more happier especially if Ontarians love to sip cider. While Grassy Narrows First Nations suffer from Mercury contaminants in their drinking water, they can now sip on cider. Kinda the let them eat cake syndrome, eh?
Meanwhile, we are pacified with float-festivals, movies downtown and other local distractions while the real work of unravelling our local economy continues at Town hall, selling our profitable MPUC and the outsourcing of local policing to the OPP and then we’ve yet to see what plans they have for our fire-fighters… but hey, we can go swim in Little Lake and forget about the real troubles and trust our good politicians to do right by us.
