These Ontario Liberal ads look great (despite what Warren Kinsella says...)

I loved this pre-writ ad produced by Kathleen Wynne's team showcasing the kind of person and leader she is. It has over 500,000 views on YouTube and counting: This great ad below, also produced by the same Ontario Liberal team, puts Andrea Horwath's rejection of progressive values front and centre.

The folly of Hudakian Conservatives in the Ontario PC Party will cost them this election...

In 2003, Ontarians had fully experienced the impact of Mike Harris' neo-conservative policies in action: crowded schools, never-ending labour disruptions, demoralized teachers, growing health care wait times, closed hospitals, firedShow More Summary

Michael Sam becomes 1st openly gay athlete to be drafted into the NFL...

What a beautiful and sweet moment! It's so very nice to share in it on TV. Congrats to Mr. Sam! I'm not much of a football fan, but I'll have to find a way to catch a St. Louis Rams game when Sam starts to play for them.

Andrea Horwath pulls a "Jack Layton", but this time progressives will flock to Kathleen Wynne's Liberals to stop Conservatives...

I think Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath has made a major mistake inforcing an Ontario election for June. Apparently, NDP insiders think the time is rightto scoop up disaffected Liberal supporters and replace the Grits as the dominant party on the centre-left. Show More Summary

Prince Harry might "experiment with gay men" if his relationship doesn’t work out (which apparently it has not!)

What a lovely headline!: Prince Harry might experiment with gay men if my relationship doesn’t work out It certainly caught my eye, although Harry never has to try too hard to get my attention (or most gay men's). And of course, this story yesterday seems to confirm the handsome prince is back on the market. Show More Summary

Forget addiction issues; audio reveals window into Rob Ford's twisted mind and heart

It seems Toronto's crack mayor Rob Ford has been living up to that moniker, despite claiming his crack cocaine smoking caught on video last year was an "isolated incident." Clearly it wasn't.Ford was apparently filmed smoking crack cocaine again just this past weekend in his sister's house. Show More Summary

Congrats to Nancy Leblanc, the acclaimed Ontario Liberal candidate in Parkdale-High Park

I read this good news online this morning on Scott Tribe's site, as well as Big City Liberal, that my friend Nancy Leblanc will be acclaimed as the Ontario Liberal candidate in the Parkdale-High Park riding for the next provincial election. Show More Summary

Adam Vaughan's 'game changer' candidacy in Trinity-Spadina puts the downtown Toronto riding into Liberal reach...

The announcement yesterday that popular downtown city councillor Adam Vaughan is seeking the federal Liberal nomination in Trinity-Spadina is a "game changer" that puts the Grits back into major contention in the upcoming by-election.In...Show More Summary

Kick attention-seeking, mischief-making American bigot Peter LaBarbera out of the country, please!

It seems hatemonger Peter LaBarbera's temporary detention by Canada Customs at Regina's airport last week was quite justified, considering what the bigoted troublemaker got himself into on the University of Regina's campus today. LaBarbera,...Show More Summary

Ding dong, the wicked Rob Anders is politically dead!

What joyous news this Sunday morning! The insanity in Calgary West / Signal Hill is finally over! Rob Anders - the longtime homophobe, social conservative dork, with a penchant for falling asleep in Parliament (see pic on the right)Show More Summary

Personal agendas trump party loyalty in Trinity-Spadina

I've watched this week's events in Trinity-Spadina closely, mostly appalled at the hypocrisy on display. Let's briefly start with 22-year-old diva Zach Paikin, unqualified to be a MP due to a lack of life experience and a clear lack of judgment, who showed the world this week what he's made of.

Centrist Liberals will decide who becomes the next mayor of Toronto....

Now that Olivia Chow has officially entered the race for Toronto's next mayor, the stage is set for an epic battle. The field of candidates is crowded, but it will definitely begin to thin out over the next few months. I predict theShow More Summary

Great launch by John Tory into Toronto mayor's race...

I'm very pleased that John Tory has stepped forward to run for mayor of Toronto. This offers our city a clear chance of ridding itself of Rob Ford's reign of terror. Tory's an excellent candidate and would make an exceptional mayor! I'm definitely considering voting for him. Show More Summary

Hurray for Ellen Page!

Very glad to hear this news today. Plus she's cute. Makes me wish I were a lesbian ;-) "In a speech at the Time to Thrive conference Friday, actress Ellen Page came out as gay. “I’m here today because I am gay,” she told the audience of LGBT youth at the Bally’s Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

By-election results show Tim Hudak’s far-right agenda still tanking in Ontario…leaving an opening for Wynne’s Liberals to win again…

Kathleen Wynne’s Ontario Liberals got decisively whipped in yesterday’s provincial by-elections in Niagara Falls and Thornhill. Their result in Thornhill, which was slightly stronger than their 2011 result in the same seat, showed Liberal support in the GTA is, at least, hanging in there under Wynne’s leadership.

Time to boycott disgusting Russia's celebration of its bigoted self

I will not be watching Russia's disgusting celebration of itself tomorrow. The opening ceremonies for the Sochi Games will not be playing on my TV at work, nor at home on Friday night. I can't bear to watch a celebration of Russia'sShow More Summary

Sad news about Philip Seymour Hoffman...

"Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won the Oscar for best actor in 2006 for his portrayal of writer Truman Capote in “Capote” and created a gallery of other vivid characters...was found dead Sunday in his Greenwich Village apartment with what law enforcement officials said was a syringe in his arm.

Putin resembles Hitler as he suggests Russia needs to "cleanse" itself of homosexuality

How horrible it must be to be LGBT in Russia these days. My heart truly goes out to all LGBT people living in Russia and their allies.Next month's Sochi Olympics are shining a light on that country's despicable treatment of its gay people and rightly so. Show More Summary
