Wynne hires “business police” to enforce minimum wage hike

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


On January 1, the minimum wage jumped in Ontario and Alberta.

The Bank of Canada says there will be 60,000 job losses as a result.

As we've reported, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has called business owners who've objected to the minimum wage hike "bullies."

Here's today's news:

The Ontario Liberals are hiring 175 new business police to inspect and review how companies are coping.

Minimum wage? I guarantee you those 175 inspectors, and all their support staff, will be making high five figures, maybe six. So no more entry level jobs; no more entrepreneurs. But hundreds more tax-sucking jobs to bully the remaining entrepreneurs.

There's more:

"Businesses should consider raising prices to offset wage hike: Ontario labour minister"

Kevin Flynn has been a professional politician for over 30 years. He's spent his life on the public teat.

And now he’s giving advice to companies: Just raise your prices! Because that’s what they do in government — just take money from people, in the form of fees and taxes.

But fine: Let's say every company just jacked up their prices.

If the price of everything goes up — then what’s the point of a minimum wage hike?

This won’t end well. You can’t move your Tim Hortons from Toronto to Buffalo, but you can move a factory from Canada to the U.S. to can get away from Notley, Wynne and Trudeau.

At least the rich can.

Not the minimum wage poor...

NEXT: Joel Pollak of Breitbart.com comes on to discuss the speech everyone's talking about: Oprah Winfrey's speech at the Golden Globe Awards.

Now many are speculating that the billionaire talk show legend is contemplating a run for president in 2020. Could this be true?

THEN: One of our favourite guests, Dr. Jordan Peterson, joins me to talk about his forthcoming international tour promoting the message of his new book, 12 Rules for Life.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

A friend told me over Christmas that observing current events is like being trapped in a continuous loop of “The Twilight Zone”. I agree with him. Watching moron lefty politicians like Buzzard Wynne, Rachel Nutley and of course our very own PM Zoolander is like watching great unicorns leaping from rainbow to rainbow and back again over the beautiful fluffy white clouds all while singing Kumbaya and Michael Row the Boat Ashore…. I’m wondering how long this idiocy can go on before the country begins to decline irrevocably. I guess it won’t bother the lefties they will always have their gubmint jobs.

If we are going to talk about renting, lets be honest. There are crappy tenants as well as crappy landlords.

Very true, Liza. I also took care of places that I rented better than the owner did. Not that they were slobs, either. I was always concerned about the golden rule and my reputation. We never had a problem finding a place to rent. I now have very few problems with my tenants since I learned how to weed out the self-absorbed, demanding and entitled trouble-makers. I also learned that with the pathetically small damage deposits allowed in Manitoba that a bad tenant can cost me a lot more than an empty rental unit for a month. So, if need be it will stay empty until I find a renter who will show some respect. They are not all bad but they definitely exceed the good ones.

I also seldom have trouble finding tenants because I keep my place nice and I demand that they do the same.

opps sorry. I didn’t mean to post two comments on Oprah. I thought the first one didn’t post.

If we are going to talk about renting, lets be honest. There are crappy tenants as well as crappy landlords. When I rented I was a stellar tenant and the place always looked better when I left than when I moved in. At any inspections I always made sure it was immaculate and there were no neighbour complaints. All I wanted was to be left alone, and all the landlord wanted was to have tenants who respected his property and didn’t cause complaints in the neighbourhood. It worked well.

Nobody put the Donald on a pedestal which is why they can’t knock him off. I would be very surprised if Oprah’s didn’t get knocked over. Her Pope hat is already on crooked because of her Clinton and Weinstein affiliations.

In that painfully predictable speech, she absolved that room full of predators, pedophiles and apologists of all their sins and told them they were brave and a new day was coming. Really.

MILO Explains ‘Oprah 2020’, skip to 10:35 if you want to hear what Milo says about the new religion of the left, its new leader and her followers.

Oprah knew about Harvey. Does that mean she knew about the pedo’s? How could she not. Nobody talks about the pedos. It is more than a ’woman’s’ issue. I wonder what she will say about Corey Feldman because someone is going to ask her.

She is too snowflake, post modernist tainted. I don’t think America would put up with it after so many years of ‘winning’ with Trump.

MILO Explains ‘Oprah 2020’
Best explanation I’ve heard yet, of the Hollywood debacle and the power of Oprah’s cleansing forgiveness, highlight around 10:30.
So, she is on a pedestal. Should be easy enough to knock her off it. Her Pope hat is already on crooked for her ‘friendship?" with Weinstein and the Clintons’.

Oprah is one hell of a skilled manipulator. A veritable evangelist for the new religion of the heathen hoards. It’s gonna be a spectacle.
Stock up on your gravol. I am already feeling nauseous.

Get off your ass and fix/renovate shit. Maybe you should post less here and do your job. I don’t believe for one second that you have given your tenants a home to be proud of, but they have destroyed it. I am willing to bet money that the apartments are shit holes for the most part if I was to go look at them.

You have never seen my rental. Your arrogance and pretensions to divinity are showing. I keep my place better than any renter does. Even the best of them. I keep it like it is my own place because it is. Renters treat it like a outhouse and then bitch and demand. I have an interest in keeping g up its value. They don’t. They wreck it. Not me. There are no slum landlords only slum tenants.I guess there is reason why some people are renters forever. You truly are an arrogant half-wit.

- Socialists have no idea how business works. They implement their policies & then have to look for scapegoats when those policies fail because they can’t accept the fact that it’s the policies themselves that are failures. Wynne thinks she just created 175 jobs by hiring those inspectors. She’s going to convince herself that it’s those evil businesses that cause those 60,000 or so job losses, not her failed policies.

- It’s great to see Dr. Peterson again. I watched his Bible series & would recommend it. I have his book on order & am looking forward to it.

- The Golden Globe Awards – where a bunch of celebrities dressed in black to show their support for the #MeToo victims, who they forgot to actually invite or mention by name. As far as Oprah running for president, people will have to forget her “old white people need to die to end racism” comments, the fact that she ran to Europe & falsely accused Swiss shopkeepers of racism so she could promote her movie and, most damning to her own base, the fact that she practically acted as Harvey Weinsteins’ pimp. https://pagesix.com/2017/11/28/actress-harvey-used-oprah-and-naomi-to-seduce-me/ It’s going to be front & center in the campaign if she runs for office. Her fan base is large but the election involves the entire country.
