I have been following and ...

News from the Park – Supporting local business

This week MPPs found themselves back in their home ridings for a constituency week.  I’d rather be home in the North, away from the humidity and stickiness of Toronto.  I love hearing the call of the loon on CBC Morning North in the summer, although there is nothing like hearing the real thing wafting over our lakes at home in ...

Cette semaine, les députés sont rentrés dans leur circonscription pour la semaine. Je préfère être chez moi dans le Nord, loin de l’humidité et de la chaleur de Toronto.

News from the Park – It goes on

Readers will undoubtedly know that the Ontario Legislature has begun to resume operation, meaning that once again I find myself in Queen’s Park for the bulk of the week. Heading back to The City at first was rather disconcerting. The very streets themselves looked and sounded different. Not quiet but more empty than usual.  Seeing so many people walking around ...
