Hey Bob Rae! It’s the Kettle Calling!!

Bob Rae, former, and disastrous, premier of Ontario, has recently been criticizing the proroguing of parliament by Stephen Harper.

Well, Bob Rae is the right person to be criticizing on proroguing! (now, where did I put that sarcasm point???)

When Bob decided to flush Ontario down the toilet during his tenure, he prorogued the Ontario legislature a whopping three times!

Dec 19, 1991 he prorogued the house, and they didn’t return until April 6, 1992.

Dec 10, 1992, and they returned April 13, 1993.

By 1994, his government was running out of steam (and running double-digit deficits, and had doubled the debt) so the house was prorogued again Dec 9, 1994, and the house did not sit again until the legislature was dissolved April 28, 1995 (the year he did not even bring a budget)

So Bob Rae, I have a question?

In your Canada, is it do as I say, not as I do?

As you can tell, I’m not a big fan of Bob Rae. I graduated in 1991, with a lot of good intentions. I was looking at working for the Office of the Ombudsman. But, in Bob Rae’s government of Ontario, it was not the best person for the job, but the best minority for the job.

On actual job postings, it was stated quite clearly, “healthy white males need not apply”.

Glad I just spent $40,000 on a degree in a province where the best person for the job is the person who fills a quota.

FYI, this is the same quota system that limited enrollment in medical school, to cut costs. And with the doctor shortage now, we are reaping what Bob has sown.

Thanks Bob!
