    …LPS seems to have “gotten away like bandits” once again with yet another rich supplement to an already fabulously rich overall compensation package inclusive of high wages, unparalleled benefits, gold plated pension and early retirement options. As usual, LFS will no doubt quickly follow suit and just keep getting ever richer as well. …The timing of the highly self serving (and manipulative in terms of its carefully crafted questions) “LPS public satisfaction poll results” have been completely lost on both the public and the media – both of which seem to have largely simply bought into “the poll”, and resumed their traditional “love-in” borne out of their blind hero worship of both services. …Alas, a predictable return (following “all the dust having settled”) to the “same ol, same ol” standard gushing, maudlin sentimentality (…which usually starts with such hyperbole as, “…They put their lives on the line every day so deserve every penny they get”). …Indeed, all seems to have been “forgotten and forgiven” …i.e. notwithstanding that the “demands ” of their heroes (backed up with decidedly unheroic threats to go to arbitration and/or pull support for Block Parent and Crossing Guard programs), as once again caved into by our stalwart City “leaders”, came at the expense of the most vulnerable in our community – including the loss of wading pools for 3 year olds, and homes for the destitute. …Ho hum, as we approach “Family Day”, it appears to be just a return to “business as usual” for the most “entitled of entitled” members of the extended City of London “Family” …and for the “ever caring and wise” (…and hmmm, ever political) “leaders” of that family. …Ya, Happy Family Day indeed…for the luck few so annointed.

    Dan….I ended my week on a high note when I read Justin Trudeau would defend Canada to his death..given his father amazing track record of defending Canada during WW2 I can only hope the enemy is held off the shores by sight of Justin riding up and down the beach on his electric motorcycle

    As well I also read about the farm workers protest and was somewhat confused as to all the groups looking out for the workers. why there was Justice for Immigrant Workers not to be confused with Justice for Migrant Workers along with the regualr lot of professional protesters aka downtown Toronto residents.

    I sure hope Dalton can figure out how to solve all our challenges when he sits with his wife and asks her how much she can afford to cut from her teachers salary. Of course he can seek advice from his MP brother about how to figure out a way to make pension plans more economical. Hopefully by not operating in a vaccum like he always seems to do will help find the solutions,,,,besides if all else goes wrong he can blame Drummond because he is a former ‘evil banker” who took milliions from old widows through bank service charges.

    If Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, and probably every holiday weekend, birthday and every statutory and quasi legal day off runs basically as time spent with family isn’t it a bit redundant to have a Family Day.

    What if people despise and/or are seperated from their families….should they celebrate un-Family Day?
