To Be or Not to Be?? That is the Question!

The MTO is in the business of providing a way for us to get from point A to point B. The problem is they think those points are the same for everyone!

They think we all live, work, shop and visit at either A or B. 

Try and get a permit to open a driveway for a business half way between A and B.

If you are one of the rare successful ones you better have money left over for a sign permit after you clear the message, illuminaqtion, location, size, font and color of the sign with the MTO. We can’t have signs distracting people getting from A to B.

 Try and get a permit for a driveway or to build a home half way between A and B.

Can’t have that! You might create a hazard with your mailbox or have kids that need the school bus to stop and that would slow down people getting from A to B.

 Now let’s consider Hepworth point A and you decide to build a home and live there.

Better not try and build on Elizabeth St. on a vacant lot! Even though it’s zoned residential and taxes are assessed as residential it’s really zoned “future development” and you can’t have a building permit.

Well why not – you are the future and your home is the development, right?

Actually no, since future development really means there is no development in the future unless you qualify by making some kind of change to the property.

OK, what change or changes are required? That’s where it gets complicated! 

The County says the property is residential and the Town says it’s future development but the County has to make the changes, but can’t even talk about it without researching why it’s future development for about 3 weeks, but “Try the Conservation Authority” in the meantime but don’t forget the property is within 1200 ft. of the highway and the MTO must be involved but you’ll probably have to go to Committee of Adjustments for change in lot size and do a Karst study and do a drainage plan and look for possible future sink holes but for God’s sake don’t mention the “Modular” parts of your new home that started life as shipping containers since the Town has a bylaw outlawing them!

Enough buts there to fill Jimmy’s ashtray! 

Oh, screw it! Let’s try and build at Wiarton as point B and drive unobstructed by school busses and mail delivery to work in Hepworth point A!

But…. There’s about five people in Wiarton who object to any new development there and they don’t even have infrastructure for a 4-plex in place yet and they object to new infrastructure and they don’t want anything to progress till they die and they’re not ready to die yet and there’s no work in Hepworth anyway and……..!

 Oh, screw it! I’m moving to Tuktoyaktuk and I’ll look for work building igloos or hunting seals until global warming turns my front yard into beachfront!

 It’s a world full of regulations people, but it’s for your own good don’t you know, to protect you from having to sue anyone later if anything should happen – and despite, or maybe because of all the permits and regulations, things happen! You already need a permit to piss and they’re working on a regulation to stop you from pissing into the wind!

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Seperation from the Province of Ontario is our only hope!

Yeah I said it out loud!

We as a community are being systematically raped and pillaged by the Province of Ontario!!

The Province has total control over every facet of our lives and we allow it!

The Province dictates what we can do with our land, lives and our future. This is not what our founding fathers planned with the British North American Act. It flies in the face of Confederation.

Think for a moment, Planning is dictated by Provincial Policy. Highways controlled by faceless bureaucrats in London.What we eat is controlled by people in Toronto.What we pay for electricity again controlled by people in Toronto. What is taught in schools controlled by Provincial Policy. We are regulated to death in this Province by dictators that create regulations that become law without ever seeing the floor of our legislators.

The Province is in the process of selling off our assets to fuel their addiction to spending and regulating. Bob Rae set the course by selling off our Real Estate and mortgaging our future to support his plan and it seems Katherine Wynne is planning the same with Ontario Hydro.

The Province forced the Municipalities to surrender their Crown Patented Rights as Municipal Corporations so they could control the very nature of our life styles.

They have seized control of our Schools, Planning, Parks and scared industry out of our province leaving us totally dependant on their programs for growth and development.

They have made things pro big city and so anti country that our youth must leave to earn a living. This has left us with a very shallow labour pool and little or no industry.

I don’t know about you but I don’t really give a rats ass about what is good for Toronto, I came to this part of the country to get away from city lifestyle.

The Province of Toronto , I mean Ontario, is a have not Province! Ontario was once the leader of this Country! Today we live to serve the paper gods of Toronto.

Our Lesbian Premier is nothing more than a socialist fascist. The Liberals have become the puppets for the freeloaders of this Province. The Simple serpents are driving the bus with her blessings.

Our roads are bad, our taxes too high and our services declining. The corruption is rampant the Gas affair, Ontario hydro billing fiasco, now the OPP Union is being investigated for Offshore Banking etc.

The RCMP is alleging top brass of the Ontario Provincial Police union participated in a sophisticated financial scheme involving a travel company, a consulting firm and high-risk offshore investments, “to profit and deceive” their members, putting their union in peril.

Among the alleged investments: two backside condos in the Bahamas, one valued at $1.5 million, and $100,000 in union money wired to an income fund in the Cayman Islands.

Just one example of many showing your tax dollars ar work.

The Province used deceit to create the municipal amalgamation scheme. In doing so the Province forced amalgamation on all communities creating new Provincial Corporations which are totally controlled by the Province versus what we had, that being Crown Patent Corporations having equal power with the Province. The end result being that Municipal Corporations are totally subject to Provincial Policy not local need.

The Province implemented the Master Zoning Plan for the Province by refusing to pay out Federal transfer Payments to the municipalities, if the Municipality did not conform to the Provincial planning Policy.

 I is abundantly clear that the Province through the infamous Green Energy Act is committed to Agenda 21 mandate as proclaimed by the United Nations. This is a path that is fatal to rural lifestyle.
The actions of the Province circumvent British Common Law and creates Provincial supremacy via regulation, which flies in the face of the BNA Act Section 109.

Viva Rural Ontario Liberal!!!

Indecision May or May not Be Our Problem!

Wow!! Yet again we send a message to the Investment world that this town is not open for business!

Have you been to Foodland lately if not take a canoe! The roof is leaking so bad that you play dodge the bucket when trying to navigate the rapids in the freezer section!

Foodland has been trying for the last five years to build a new store next to Tim Hortons only to be met with objections and red tape! What is the matter with you people!!!

A thirty thousand square foot store would create jobs, tax revenue and oh yeah variety!! The new store is being cited as the cause for reduced property values as one of the major complaints! Wow there is a thought!!

The area the proposed store is in features a bunch of old houses that have long outlived their economic life in the first place. There is no value there! Your position in that regard does more to devalue property in all of the town as you are killing new investment in the community and telling the world that you are in fact a bunch of hillbillies that doesn’t give a damn about the future of this community let alone the needs of the community! It proves that your only concern is your pocket-book as you may or may not be able to sell you worn out shack to some sucker that cannot afford anything else!!

The other issue proclaimed is traffic problems!! Oh Gee I guess you have never been outside your shack in the summer. We already have traffic problems beating down the lineup at Timmy’s every morning let alone in the summer when the citiots arrive. Have you never tried to shop at Foodland in the summer? Oh wait I bet you go to Owen Sound to shop at NoFrills to save 15 cents on a loaf of bread!!!

When you succeed in pissing away yet another opportunity for growth and investment in our community and you find that you now have to go to Owen Sound for groceries you will be whining that there is no growth here.

When you see other businesses leave town because of the NYBY attitude and there are no services available because of a declining tax base which will really reduce property value who will you blame then!!

No Job, no Airport, no grocery store, no future!!! Get a grip you bunch of Hicks!!!

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

As Forest Gump would say “Stupid is as Stupid does”

The blind leading the blind in the Town of South Bruce Peninsula maintains their incredible display of incompetence making this community look absolutely stupid in the eyes of the investment community!

The town has yet again insulted yet another investor looking to develop the Airport with a 100 million dollar investment creating over 1,000 jobs.The offer was made and the town didn’t respond!

With unemployment in this area at its highest point in history, real estate prices dropping like a stone, businesses leaving one right after the other you think they might give some thought to responding to an interested party??

 Six years ago the town failed to respond to an offer for the airport for $2,000,000 cash, six years later they don’t respond to a million dollar offer! I have a hard time believing that the elected ones are that irresponsible.

They are now seeking a new manager for the airport. The old one will not continue at $80,000.00 per year plus expenses. HMMMMM! Seems like a fair pay cheque to plow snow and pump gas.

Let me think 800 acres of prime real estate with an airport licence and you are loosing 200 grand a year on it.If we ignore everybody maybe it will go away!!! NOT!

The average house price n Toronto is 1 million dollars, maybe we could trade the airport for two houses What a score!!!

But not to worry Janice has got paid parking back!!! That will save us!! At the very least it otta scare away any tourists that were thinking of coming up this summer!!!

Just think install new ticket dispensers for parking ($18,000 each) at Sauble then hand them over to the Natives when they win the land claim!! There is vision!!!

Would the last one leaving this area please turn out the lights!!!!

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
