  • OFL had their convention this week ……. shocking news ( NOT )

    Meow everyone, by now most of you all know what i think of the OFL, unions and of course slippery Sid Ryan. While I have not written about the slippery one for a while now, I thought that it was time to bring back into the spot light yet again .


    This past week, the Ontario Federation of labor held its annual general convention at their favorite downtown hotel. This hotel should be well known to them and their loyal supporters for this is the same hotel that good ol’ slippery Sid spent thousand of their member dollars housing occupy Toronto organizers while those organizers where busy committing crimes in our city at the park where the occupation was being held. i wonder what the membership would say if they knew what their money was really being used for.


    However, this convention served not only to bring together like minded neanderthals looking for any excuse not to actually have to work for a living, it also served another purpose this year.This year, the top three officers of this cult were up for re-election . I use the word election loosely here but more on that later.


    The first person i want to showcase of Nancy Hutchinson re-elected  as the Treasurer. What good cult would be complete without her smiling face and perfectly  styled hair . Clearly, she exemplifies the average worker with perfect hair .



    ( click onto the images to see them in full sized versions )



    Next we move onto the number two person at the OFL, our simple friend Irwin Nanda . Irwin really reaches out to the average Joe who has to struggle to make ends meet,  with his designer cloths, , thousand dollar shirts and creepy smile.




    Of course, what good election would be complete without our good buddy slippery Sid Ryan not being in the picture. Sid is the poster boy for the average  Joe, with his three hundred and fifty thousand dollar a year salary, something I am sure every simple worker can relate to  his ability to dress himself in designer cloths by labels most doubt he ( Sid )  can even pronounce, let alone spell, and of course his shrill  squeak .  When Sid speaks, there is no mistaking him for anyone intellectual.  Here is Sid in all his plastic glory :




    With these three ” re-elected ” for yet another term, there is no question that we are in for some more great if not utterly useless sound bites consisting of drivel laden clap trap, more fist pumping of course because that’s really all they know how to do well.  We will see Sid tell us how he hates the so called one percent  while he is in the bank line cashing his three hundred and fifty thousand dollar a year pay check . We will see Irwin tell us how the working people of Ontario are so badly off financially, while he  flips through the latest  fashion brochures looking for designer shirts at a grand a piece. We will also get to see  the smiling face of Nancy for another term and will forever wonder  how she keeps her hair so perfect.  ( pssst, my guess, NON-union made hair spray )


    However, One persons who i left out until now is my old nemesis Joel ” the pole ” Duff. Duff, as many may recall was with the CFS until he went over to the OFL. Under Duff’s  dictatorship, NO CFS slate ever lost a student union election. So, it makes  perfect sense that good ol’ Duff was on  hand at these elections as well, I am sure  that they went smoothly and  that all the ballots where counted and tabulated even before the election process was started. ( in the name of making good use of one time  of course ) Hey, Duff, do you have a picture of Sid in your new house yet? If not, may I suggest getting one, and placing in your washroom?  ( would make a great toilet seat )  Here is what the duffer looks like for those who really need a good scarey wake up picture to motivate them :




    So, to the three re-elected members of the OFL, congratulations. You have given me a few more years of priceless materials and sound bites. Oh and Duff, the next time you wish to go around telling your cronies that it is me taking your pictures, and calling me an asshole, just remember, I am older than you ( and far  smarter than you can ever hope to be ) so , that’s MR. ASSHOLE to you .

  • What the Ontario Federation of Labor REALLY thinks of persons with disabilities

    Meow everyone, very recently there was a memorial unveiling at the Toronto ferry terminal to re-name the facility and to unveil a statue of Jack Layton. Layton was the  federal leader of the NDP party here in Canada  and  while his party is well known for their ultra radical left wing agendas, Layton had a somewhat storied political career . He was a city counsilor for many years before he made the jump to federal politics. He was intellectually a very smart person holding a PHD, but as he became more and more involved in the political ring, I think he lost sight of what he was really there for and ended up cow towing  tro the radical ultra left. However, this is not a story about Layton . rather this is a story about how the Ontario Federation of Labor has once again decided that their collective, over inflated ego and  grandiose delusions of self importance are of greater value to them than  persons with disabilities.  Here is a screen shot from the OFL website on their claimed position as related to persons with disabilities. Please read the text very carefully as this statement and the subsequent images and video will show a vastly different picture:





    So, from the4 above image we see that the OFL claims to fight for the ” rights and dignity ” an dto ” remove barriers ” , they wanrt to make our society and ” all inclusive one “. These, on the surface sound like highly commendable words that we should embrace with open arms. HOWEVER, as wee will see, their actions tell a far different story, a story of EXCLUSION ,a story of CREATING deliberate BARRIERS, while placing themselves above everyone else, literally.  Have a look at these images I shot from the event as proof . You will notice that the OFL has their seating directly in FRONT and on elevated ground, while the accessible seating is behind them and on lower ground:



    It appears that Sid Ryan, Irwin Nanda and Nancy Hutchinson seem to think that they are clearly better than the people they claim to want to remove barriers from, but hey, egos are egos, and of course their delusions of self importance are clearly a higher priority than the people they CLAIM to want to support. For those who need a reminder of who these people are, lets have a closer look, and remember people, elections are coming up so what better way to remind them that they are nothing more than a bunch of phony leaders:









    What? Where you hoping to see an image of Sid Ryan?  Well, fear not, he’s in the video. Top image is Nancy Hutchinson followed by Irwin Nanda and below him is Joel Duff. Many will recall some months ago when  Ryan and Nanda  spent a night on the streets to support the OCAP protest for  persons without homes. Ryan and Nanda dressed down for the event wearing their two week old designer clothes, as opposed to brand new ones. Hey, they really got to understand the homeless situation from that.  They even brought along their own sleeping chairs, something that clearly, every person who lives on the streets has.  So, let me end this by showing you the video where the OFL  puts themselves in FRONT. BUT WAIT, there is  more to this video There are two parts to it. One part shows the event as it was getting ready to accept the crowd and clearly shows the location of the seating. The second part shows the same area , now filled in  and clearly you can see that  the so called accessible seating was anything but accessible. Here is the video:
