The Giveaway’s Continue: The Rich Get Richer & the Working Class Poorer

Published

The Corporate Lottery that all Big Business has been a part of, has been paying off for some. Donations with promises of future lucrative positions in Big Business have resulted in a firestorm of economic activity and financial jackpots for those in Big Pharma, the Electric Vehicle Sector and others. Between Premier Ford, Justin Trudeau and other Canadian Premiers the EV Industry has and will receive $57 Billion from the taxpayers. Perhaps there will come a day when EV Batteries will last more than a year or two, and the cost of these vehicles could match the overpriced gas models of the day, but this largess is seriously questionable at best, forked out to Corporations that will severely profit shortly and on the public dime too.

You don’t care about the various hidden agreements made by your Province with these Corporations, where there is no Transparency of the Agreements nor Accountability placed on the Government or Corporation? Corporate Welfare went wrong, worse than the Kathleen Wynne days when a photo shoot was needed, so they gave a $125 Million check to some Automotive Facility in Oshawa. Sure the Liberals were possibly guilty of undeclared fraud, allowing donations to sway their purchasing and Planning Departments, selling time with a Minister and wasting $Billions closing down operations that did not need to have been started, except for political gains. The Doug Ford Team has done some of these above-mentioned scams, and their ties to the Corporate World were never fully forthcoming. The Corporate Sector Controls The Conservatives of Ontario, and this has been a hidden truth for some time.

Victor Fedeli and Francois-Philippe Champagne invited Corporate Participation in their plans to create a new sector in Canada, the EV Panacea, and then the Corporate World took over. How else can you see the fact that all the agreements between the government and corporations are secret, unseen to the publics eye? All the Government offers is promises and propaganda/social media rushes “the future this, the futures that” but absolutely no real proven numbers for the public to consider.

With the total amount of money somewhat known, given and basically donated to rich corporations, the possible 3000 jobs created will cost $5 Million per job. Excessive don’t you think?

What cost to create jobs? Is it not the corporate Worlds responsibility to take care of its own employment needs? The Conservatives have become Socialistic Corporate Hacks, financially giving a windfall of cash to the Rich, while not paying our Essential Service Employee properly for years. Booooooooooooooooooo!

Maier throws for three touchdowns, leads Stampeders to 25-24 win over Lions

Published

 on

 

CALGARY – Clarke Barnes caught a five-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jake Maier in the fourth quarter and the Calgary Stampeders hung on for a 25-24 win over the B.C. Lions on Sunday at McMahon Stadium.

Maier also threw a pair of touchdown passes to Reggie Begelton and Jalen Philpot, while Rene Paredes kicked a field goal for the Stampeders (3-3), who snapped a two-game losing streak. The Stamps also scored two points on a safety.

Stanley Berryhill III and Justin McInnis caught TD passes from B.C. quarterback Vernon Adams Jr., while Sean Whyte kicked three field goals — including a 52-yarder — for the Lions (5-2), whose five-game winning streak came to an end.

Stefan Flintoft kicked an 84-yard single with 1:53 left in the game to pull the Lions within a point, but that was as close as they could get.

After the Lions failed to get anything going on their first two drives of the game, Adams engineered a seven-play, 83-yard drive that he finished off by tossing a 14-yard touchdown pass to Berryhill at 10:14 of the first quarter.

On the drive, Lions running back William Stanback had three carries for 33 yards, while Stampeders defensive back Tyler Richardson took a costly pass interference penalty that moved the Lions up to the Calgary 20-yard line.

Calgary’s Peyton Logan returned a punt 50 yards to the B.C. 30-yard line to start the second quarter. Three plays later, Maier threw a nine-yard TD pass to Begelton and after Paredes kicked the convert the Stamps tied the score at 7-7.

Later in the second quarter, Logan has another great runback of 31 yards to give the Stamps great field position, this time at the B.C. 34-yard line. Once again, it took Calgary just three plays to score as Philpot did a great job to haul in a 23-yard pass from Maier, while getting a foot down in the end zone to put Calgary up 14-7.

Whyte then booted an 18-yard field goal with 1:25 remaining in the first half to pull the Lions within four points.

Richardson atoned for his earlier penalty by picking off an errant pass by Adams to end a B.C. scoring threat with 24 seconds left on the clock before the intermission.

After Paredes kicked a 43-yard field goal early in the third quarter, Adams responded by putting together an impressive eight-play, 70-yard drive that McInnis finished off by hauling in a nine-yard TD pass to tie the score at 17-17.

Maier responded by leading the Stamps on an impressive drive of their own that came up short when B.C.’s T.J. Lee tackled Calgary receiver Marken Michel just short of the goal line for a turnover on downs as time expired in the third quarter.

On the first play of the fourth, Adams dropped back into his own end zone and attempted a pass to McInnis, but offensive lineman Tyler Packer was assessed a holding penalty which resulted in a safety for Calgary to give the Stamps a 19-17 lead.

Following a 23-yard field goal by Whyte to give the Lions their first lead of the game at 20-19, the Stamps answered right back as Barnes caught a five-yard TD pass from Maier to cap off a quick, three-play, 70-yard scoring drive. Calgary attempted a two-point convert, but Maier’s pass to Philpot in the end zone was incomplete.

After Whyte booted a 52-yard field to pull the Lions within two points, the Stamps went two-and-out on their next drive.

Calgary’s Kobe Williams then intercepted a pass thrown by Adams to end another scoring drive by the Lions.

Lions: Have a bye week, then visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2-5) on Thursday, Aug. 1.

Talkative Giants manager Bob Melvin ejected before first pitch at Colorado

Published

 on

 

DENVER (AP) — San Francisco Giants manager Bob Melvin wasn’t around for the finish Sunday as his team defeated the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.

He didn’t even make it to the start, for that matter.

In an unusual scene, Melvin was ejected before the first pitch after he and bench coach Ryan Christensen delivered the lineup card to home plate umpire Alex MacKay.

“I just talked too much,” Melvin said following the Giants’ 3-2 victory. “Umpiring’s a hard job, I’m aware of that, just probably said too much. I didn’t plan that, it wasn’t choreographed. I probably went too far.”

San Francisco was coming off a 4-3 loss to the Rockies on Saturday night and a 7-3 loss on Friday.

Moments after Melvin was tossed, Jorge Soler led off Sunday’s game for the Giants with a 478-foot homer to centre field, the longest in the majors this season.

LSU cornerback Javien Toviano arrested on accusation of video voyeurism, authorities say

Published

 on

 

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU sophomore cornerback Javien Toviano surrendered to authorities Sunday on charges of video voyeurism, the East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s office said.

Toviano, 19, of Arlington, Texas, is accused of recording himself having sex with a woman without her consent, according to an arrest warrant. The woman told detectives she found videos of the two on Toviano’s iPad that were recorded through a clock with a built-in camera placed near the bed, The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reported.

The woman told detectives that Toviano had recorded them having sex in the past without her consent and she told him she did not want to be recorded.

Toviano, in an interview with detectives, admitted using a hidden camera to record the sexual encounters, the arrest warrant states.

Bond information was not immediately available. It was unknown if Toviano has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Toviano “has been suspended from all team activities, in accordance with departmental policies,” LSU said in a statement.

“We will not have further comment out of respect for the legal process,” the university said.

Toviano signed with LSU last year. He appeared in every game as a freshman and made three starts over the last five games. He finished his freshman season with 33 tackles and one pass breakup.

LSU begins preseason practice on Aug. 1, and Toviano was expected to compete for playing time at cornerback.
