    Lots of assumptions.

    Was their accumulated sick leave embedded in their collective agreement or within legislation (i.e. Education Act, Public Service Act, etc.). I can't see how an Act of the Legislature can override or render null a collection agreement. Honest question.

    I read somewhere that the government is not only going to cancel cap-and-trade but is going to pass legislation that prevents any future government from resurrecting it. I think the courts might have a problem with that - a government cannot bind its successor.

    What consent rules are these? Are you talking about something from the sex-ed curriculum?

    Well now.....this is interesting!

    Hydro One boss is out the door, apparently without his 10M + severance package, instead taking 'retirement' with a $400,000 payout.

    The Board is also sacked.

    There is definitely something we're missing here. I'm entirely curious what it is (why did someone walk away from 10M?) Not to suggest that that number was ever remotely reasonable, but they knew that when they negotiated it. Hmmm.

    This government is literally taking us back two decades.

    Children really need the content the new curriculum provides.

    OK, ok, I'm impressed.....unless that 10M is a pension component of said 'retirement'.

    Like generally? If they bring back Electric Circus, car park raves, and Mats Sundin, I'm all for it.

    I think a lot of adults really need the content the new curriculum provides and therein lies the problem.

    It's not just about the wind turbines. He's also cancelled the Green Energy fund and the rebate for electric cars.

    Let's fire up the old coal plants while we're at it.
