Catherine Swift, Linda Leatherdale and Michelle Simson join Roy for the weekly beauties and the beast segment. Topics up for discussion today include:
Veterans Affairs issues a news release committing to CAF veterans having the inside track on federal public service jobs. Only thing is, fedgov has cut 26,000 such jobs in 2011 and another 8000 will be gone by 2017.
Vancouver voters by referendum decided on whether to accept increased taxes and build more mass transit. 62% voted ‘no.’ Michelle accuses politicians in this case of being too timid to make the tough decisions and hiding behind a referendum.
Greece votes in its national referendum on the European bailout conditions for Greece. Polls have ‘yes’ and ‘no’ sides almost dead even. If it’s ‘no’ ….then what? Greek PM says the country will be at an advantage. European leaders say “think again.”
The Pan Am Games are about to begin in Ontario and hotel rooms bookings are lower than last year at this time. A huge flop coming (huge and hugely expensive) and the B&B panel’s thoughts on Paul Bernardo.
