Another reason to fire Wynne? “Secret payments” to teachers’ unions, not secret any more

Brian LilleyArchive

We’ve long known that Kathleen Wynne, a former school board trustee, has been in the bag for her friends in the Teacher’s unions but now we have a better idea of how much this cushy relationship is costing Ontario taxpayers. 

The Globe & Mail broke a story a while ago about secret payments of $2.5M to the top three teacher’s unions.

Now the government has released the audited expense reports of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation and we know that the money was for a bit more than hotel rooms and pizzas as they claimed at the time.

I have the details of where the money went and can say, this is not the normal way unions and governments negotiate.

But then again, this isn’t a normal relationship because Wynne is an activist and these are the people she can count on to help her get elected.

This is what you call political pay-back and now it’s time for the voters of Ontario to pay Wynne back by FIRING her.

If you haven’t signed our petition yet, please do that now at and don’t forget to share with others.

Just wanted to point out that the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) refused to take any money for expenses. Regardless of your opinion of teacher salaries, benefits, etc, I know from personal experience that there is a lot of integrity in this particular union. I can’t speak for the others.

“Net zero” only applies to the unions, not the taxpayers of Ontario.

Kathleen Wynne will completely destroy what’s left of Ontario. Allison Redford started and now Rachel Notley is the cleanup hitter ,well on her way to destroying Alberta. Angela Merkel has done a fine job in Germany ,hasn’t she. Women’s rights in Germany? Cripes they can’t even go out alone without fear of being molested ! And speaking of great women of our time, lets not forget Nancy Pelosi , the mother to tens of millions of illegal aliens and Obama Care.
But the Mother Superior of this group of misfit nuns of course is none other than Hillary, Lady Macbeth, with the blood of the four Bengazi victims on her hands “out damn’d spot”. The first female President ?? Leader of the Free World ??

The Problem is, as long as Whyee is paying Teacher and Police big cash, our cash, they will vote Liberal, because it means bucks in their pockets. That is the problem, Its corruption. The ONLY way conservatives can beat this is to beat it by promising to hire more teachers, and more police than what the Liberals promise, to give them something more juicy than what the Liberals will promise. Then what you do is you raise the minimum wage enough to offset the gains, so there is more equality. You know that is what is going on. So? lets not be naive. Liberal corruption needs to stop. After elected, you can make wages something independent or download the process to distance the Gov’t from setting wages etc.

You don’t “fire” a criminal, . You indict a criminal !

Anything less is just asking for more criminality

Funny, recently a judge told the senators (the pigs at the trough, not the hockey players) that they had to pay back only 50% of the money they had bilked the Canadian tax payers and, they could continue “serving” the citizens of Canada by being allowed to stay in thei cushy offices.
I know of some people who stole smaller amounts from their employers and were ordered to pay everything back and they also lost their jobs.
We still have at least two sets of laws in this country if not more.
Only in Canada can crime be punished without punishment. Weird or what?

By the time everyone comes to the realization that “these” fine people runnig our goverment(s) are severely oppressing the tax payers life situation – there will be no money left to correct any of these fraudulent deals being pulled off – just a big hole of debt – and maybe even less for one to buy bullets with.
Pretty damn sad – that it’s gotta take a hell of a lot of blood to fix – if it ever will be.
Just glad I’m ol’ & grumpy!

As long as Wynne can keep borrowing the money to pay off her supporters the geedy little piggies will keep supporting her.

She does not care and either does Toronto.
