From the equality of rights springs identity of our highest interests; you cannot subvert your neighbor's rights without striking a dangerous blow at your own. Carl Schurz

YAY! Team Lets Hammer Them Some More

I've found it extremely nauseating to engage in my favourite pastime of reading newspapers these past few days. Their cheerleading for Drummonds all too predictable evisceration of Ontario's civil society has been and continues to be relentless. Why given the amount of ink dedicated to this neoliberal blueprint for enriching those who already have too much at the expense of those who don't have enough one could suspect that much of what has been written was produced in advance much like they do with celebrity obits. Fitting since in the end that is exactly what the Drummond report is, an obituary for an Ontario where we cared  and looked out for each other. Mike Harris must be smiling today.
