SaultOnline.com is one of the most read sites in the Sault and naturally, we receive a lot of comments and opinions about some of the stories we’ve published as well as other media. Here’s a few from this past week.
Shoemaker should get the Darwin Award
Councillor Shoemaker made a resolution, Councillor Niro seconded it, to look at the city selling advertising on garbage cans as a way to make up the TWENTY SIX MILLION DOLLARS that Essar owes, YES, advertising on garbage cans!
For this he should be awarded the Darwin award, made to sit on the sidewalk in front of city hall for the summer and shine shoes, free of charge, Councillor Niro should be given honorable mention for seconding such a ridiculous idea.
We can only hope the rest of the Councillors will think long and hard before opening their mouth and suggesting anything as ridiculous as this and turning the town into the laughing stock of Ontario.
City Hall needs to get out the axe and start chopping, now, this is only going to get worse and it will be some time before it ever gets any better.
Batten down the hatches, we’re in for a rough ride.
Energy minister accuses Sault PC and NDP candidate of Mistruth
Wouldn’t the mistruth be the statement rate reduction? All’s it is is a remortgage that our kids and grandkids will pay. Green energy? Does this include the fact that Ontario residents pay for Hydro produced by green energy at way above market rates to companies that got MW contracts by donating to the liberal party? Not to mention we don’t need the power. All the excess power being produced is sold to outside of Ontario grids, mainly New York State at cut rate prices that Ontario residents also pay the difference for. OPG cutting back Hydro production because we produce to much and Ontario residents paying for the power NOT being produced. So when he talks about fair Hydro what the hell is he talking about? A Disney movie?

It’s time to Stand up Northern Ontario
The one hundred year record of voting at the ballot box for the same political Parties for economic development has made no changes to develop our natural resources in Northern Ontario.
The people of Northern Ontario need to think about how they will for the first time vote for the new, Northern Ontario Party. The registered political Party for Northern Ontario.
The people of Northern Ontario have the power at the ballot box to stand up and elect 11 Northern Ontario Party members to the Ontario Legislature in the next election that will change northern Ontario forever and will make your vote count, and makes your vote create the changes to Northern Ontario that we need so badly.
A loud northern Ontario voice in the Ontario legislature, every day.
To stand up, proud and bold that we will never be treated like a colony, be neglected, be ignored or that our natural resources valued at more than a trillion dollars in the manufactured form be blatantly mismanaged by exporting our natural resources somewhere else to be manufactured and with it the loss of many good jobs.
I ask you to support the principles with your vote at the ballot box in the next Ontario general election.
Let’s get started, I would like to see line ups to get your membership of support to elect 11 northern Ontario members to Ontario Legislature. Line ups at the 11 Northern Ontario riding associations.
Why—we love Northern Ontario, we support a manufacturing policy that our natural resources be manufactured to finished products in Northern Ontario— to create new jobs that are needed so badly in Northern Ontario.
