“I’m fearless”: Tanya Granic Allen wins Mississauga Centre PC nomination race

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

I caught up with Tanya Granic Allen after she was elected to represent the PC Party for Mississauga Centre in the upcoming Ontario provincial election.

We talked about the smear campaign against her, and her "diverse" supporters and team.

She said the next step was to "defeat the 15 years of Liberal tyranny that has ruled this province."

" I’ve proven wrong you every time we’ve engaged but you are so stupid ( again not name-calling ) that either you refuse to see it or you refuse to acknowledge the truth or moral high road for stupid sake"

You’ve proven me wrong every time? Hmmm. Maybe I missed it in the middle of the big monolithic block of text (let’’s be honest, stream-of-consciousness ranting isn’t fun to read) but I don’t see where you’ve done so in this particular case.

Why don’t you go ahead and restate your argument about power prices (after all, it’s every time so you must therefore have proven that one wrong too) in terms suitable for a target audience at the intellectual level you feel worthy of calling "stupid’ eleven times in one post.

Make sure you provide some sources, though, such that more enlightened individuals can verify for themselves.

“Your twisted ideas of right and wrong is self evident of that and needs no further explaining.. when you try to bring twisted beliefs into this world don’t cry when somebody points out how ridiculous your ideas are and possibly dangerous and immoral don’t be surprised if they shame you to put you on the right track but don’t cry and call it name calling”

This is a strange thing to say, considering it’s in response to an EIA report about the costs of generating electricity, about as far from a moral issue as one can get -that’s pretty much cold, hard economics, and put out by a rather reliable source at that.

What ideas are dangerous? My perspective is largely consistent with the law and general social attitudes in which personal freedoms are inviolable, but material ones can be regulated when it’s in our broader interest to do so.

Andrew Stephenson i would hope those Muslims are not as single minded and bigoted as you.

Do you actually work at being stupid.?? Now when I call you stupid I’m actually asking an honest question. I’m not calling you stupid for stupid sake I am asking if you’re stupid. Now don’t confuse the two. If somebody asks you if you’re stupid that’s not the same as name calling you stupid. I’ve proven wrong you every time we’ve engaged but you are so stupid ( again not name-calling ) that either you refuse to see it or you refuse to acknowledge the truth or moral high road for stupid sake. And by the way stupid not that you win many debates but to win a debate doesn’t mean you are correct in what you believe or what you debated. I’ve heard people present arguments and humour about day should be called night and night should be called day and actually made sense but it wasn’t correct at all. Now if somebody calls you names like stupid that’s only because you make claims against intelligent people… Like you have a PhD .. hahahahahahahah Good night Annie. Now it was my greatest effort you not to construe this as name calling you while explaining to you your acts of stupidity and is my greatest hope that you don’t take this personally as I am trying to add to your vast knowledge and intellect. I’m not insulting you when I tell you you have no earthly value because you have no idea what it means to be moral you can justify anything in your own little mind and in the world and whatever goes goes. You are the fringe. Your twisted ideas of right and wrong is self evident of that and needs no further explaining.. when you try to bring twisted beliefs into this world don’t cry when somebody points out how ridiculous your ideas are and possibly dangerous and immoral don’t be surprised if they shame you to put you on the right track but don’t cry and call it name calling. I hope you feel much better now that we have this straightened out.

Shania caved pretty fast. I guess her career matters more than her honesty.
commented 2018-04-23 14:19:41 -0400
Shania apologized for answering without giving more “context”.
commented 2018-04-23 14:07:10 -0400
Shania gave an honest answer about voting for Trump and liberal heads popped across the continent, bless her heart.

Yes Andrew, I know she apologized for answering the question, but you do know that is how she really feels right?

And our healthcare doesn’t work so well either when is overwhelmed by looking after the entire world but you would blame that on the seniors instead of on the millions of welfare migrants that come to this country to breed instead of work…”

And, again, good luck to Ms. Granic Allen calling 2/3 of her potential constituents “welfare migrants”.
commented 2018-04-23 12:38:23 -0400
Flat, you’ve never once proven me wrong. Youv’e called me a lot of names, but that’s about the extent of it.

“Coal is so cheap even at its most expensive applications compared to wind and solar technology for the wattage produced that’s not even in the same league. "

Luckily, the EIA calculates this out for US projects, which are reasonably comparable to ours.
You have to go back to 2015 to find lifecycle costs for coal to compare, since nobody’s actually built any new conventional coal plants in the US since then. Back then, the total levelized cost (LCOE) was 95 dollars per MWh for conventional coal (9.5c/kwh), vs 75 for combined cycle gas, 74 for wind, or 83 for hydro.
https://www.eia.gov/outlooks/archive/aeo15/electricity_generation.cfm

No coal plants were started in the comparison period in the latest 2018 report, so again the costs can’t be directly compared but the prices for non-coal sources are even lower, below $50/MW for gas turbines or photovoltaic solar. Wind’s down to 37, half what it was in the 2015 linked above.
https://www.eia.gov/outlooks/aeo/pdf/electricity_generation.pdf

Nice chart here re German coal use. https://www.cleanenergywire.org/factsheets/germanys-energy-consumption-and-power-mix-charts . 240 twh of lignite and hard coal combined in 2017, vs 272 in 2015. So, I was correct in claiming that their use of coal to generate power has declined.

If I’m playing with the numbers, I’m going to ask you to point out, specifically, what is wrong. And, I mean, provide actual data instead of your usual litany of ad-hominems.

And our healthcare doesn’t work so well either when is overwhelmed by looking after the entire world but you would blame that on the seniors instead of on the millions of welfare migrants that come to this country to breed instead of work… emergency rooms are jammed full of people from various ethnicities that don’t need to be there for runny nose is and Band-Aid fixes.. You’ve reached an all time low even for yourself blaming this on the seniors. You have no earthly value to the people of this country and I don’t know what that would feel like but your autism apparently doesn’t allow you feel anything, Your sociopathic tendencies to “produce” a narrative as opposed to an accurate overview based on ethical standards to reflect accurately a situation where it is important to support the truth, with your view there’s usually an inversion of it ( the truth ).

$13 billion for a retrofit for a reactor that supplied power to 13 million people for 25 years and more is nothing.. it has been paid for many many many times over. Clearly your math skills are lacking.. The residents of Ontario know how cheap their power used to be and how expensive it is now… Fruit fly PhD math.. hahahahahahah

Pull your skirt down stupid nobody likes with the they see.!!

You have your opinion Andrew … But it has been proven wrong so many times that I don’t even bother to take you seriously anymore. Coal is so cheap even at its most expensive applications compared to wind and solar technology for the wattage produced that’s not even in the same league. As usual you’re becoming exhausting with your ridiculous replies that it’s hard not to ridicule you. And yes… Germany is burning more cool now than two years ago.. I Watched how you played the numbers.. you make a point of half truths and hidden information to try and support your statements.. You really have becoming a tire some thing. Autism must be quite a curse.!

Andrew Stephenson so what if it’s highly immigrant?”
A lot of them are Muslims. Does she play to them, or does she play the Islamophobe card to go after the angry-old-white-guy demo?

“This was one of the best places to live in the world with our Medicare system before it was overwhelmed and it has been since the time of Joe Clark.!!
Once upon a time ( and not that long ago ) taxes in this country were reasonable as well and there was a great deal more of disposable income”
A lot of that’s just demographics. I’ve pointed out this before… but between 2006-16, Ontario’s gained 3 seniors for every working age individual, and the youth population hasn’t changed in a decade. Those seniors are expensive since they need healthcare. That, on its own, is our biggest concern going forwards. What works when everyone’s 45 and prime working age doesn’t when everyones’ 65 and retired.

“I’m not a big fan of nukes but the Can-do reactors are among the safest, most efficient as well as profitable in the world.. but clean burning coal will deliver the cheapest power for hundreds of years… "

The nukes are one of the reasons why hydro rates are so high. Darlington refurbishment is going to be roughly 13 billion dollars, one of the most expensive projects in Ontario history.

“Clean burning coal” isn’t cheap. You can have cheap coal, or you can have clean coal. Not both. That’s why natural gas has largely displaced coal – cheaper to start with clean fuel than to burn filthy fuel and try to clean it up after. Sask spent 1.5 billion dollars to try and make a closed-loop coal plant, and it still doesn’t work right.

Drew.. you have made a powerful point with your last statement… I know a lot of people who immigrated to this country and they are not trying to usurp us as the sons and daughters of the pioneers and settlers who carved a nation from the wilderness here they are here to assimilate and they are doing a damn good job of it.They are not fond of the new immigration policies not only because they had to jump through many hoops but they also know it’s reckless and dangerous..
This was one of the best places to live in the world with our Medicare system before it was overwhelmed and it has been since the time of Joe Clark.!!
Once upon a time ( and not that long ago ) taxes in this country were reasonable as well and there was a great deal more of disposable income and there wasn’t three fast food outlets on every block with the majority of new jobs being created in the service/food industry. I am only aware of one family that I knew personally that never did come off the welfare system and received very nice money for every man woman and child in the family… So nice in fact that in 1996 they bought a $525,000 house in Mill Woods and after that I lost touch with them.
It is the norm now to stay on the dole forever and ever because why work when you can stay at home and breed and be further compensated for every child you produce.

Doug Ford had better be a strong leader because there are some people who want to make changes and clean up the mess that the Liberals have made for 15 years… I will be very disappointed if Mr. Ford does not only repeal the carbon tax but if he leaves Ontario at the mercy of wind and solar technology.. I’m not a big fan of nukes but the Can-do reactors are among the safest, most efficient as well as profitable in the world.. but clean burning coal will deliver the cheapest power for hundreds of years… The globalists all all writhe and squirm at the thought of the bourgeois living comfortably while using the natural resources of the world to live well and to prosper. I read somewhere that the powerful people whom we never hear mentioned by name or any other way believe that the wealth of the world belongs to them and we have no business using it for ourselves or have any right to it… It must be true because our leaders (joke) are making sure that our resources stay in the ground and do not benefit the people of this country.

A great candidate, for 1954.

Today, a risky candidate indeed, especially in an urban riding that’s 70% immigrants.
