Are The Wheels Falling Off Already?

What a horrible holiday weekend it's turning out to be for Dalton. Now he's releasing sex offenders into your neighbourhood!
Parents are planning a protest Tuesday - the first day of classes - against a convicted sex offender who continues to reside in a Leamington group home next to St. Louis elementary school.

Catholic board director Paul Picard expressed frustration Friday that there have been no changes to Sarah Dahle's living arrangements and no updates provided to him about her status from the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.

"This whole process has been an exercise in frustration to the board and parents," he said.

Provincial police issued a warning in June there is a "public safety issue" in Leamington after Dahle, 25, was released from prison and moved to the Seniors Alternative Care Home on Talbot Street East.

Police described her as a "high risk" to reoffend.

And he's making brutal, ideologically motivated cuts to health care that hurt women and babies!

New mothers having trouble breastfeeding or suffering from postpartum depression could fall through the cracks because of planned cuts to a provincial program guaranteeing calls and visits from public health nurses, Ontario nurses warn.

Cutting the Healthy Babies Healthy Children program will place more mothers and children at risk, says a letter to Premier Dalton McGuinty from Ontario Nurses’ Association president Linda Haslam-Stroud.

“I would urge the government to revisit these decisions and stand up for our most vulnerable citizens,” said the letter, sent late last month.

Under the program, introduced in 1998, new mothers are offered a phone call from a public health nurse within 48 hours of discharge from hospital and a subsequent home visit.

Public health nurses have been told that as of next January, they will no longer be required to make contact with new mothers deemed “low risk.”

What next? Is Dalton going to kneecap former Liberal Premier David Peterson? Oh wait, he did that already.....


  1. This is what's next... his MPP's are posting "Space for Rent" signs on their constituancy offices, cause they know they're gonna LOSE...

  2. Great catch. Next time Dalton has a campaign stop in a school, teachers & reporters should ask him about these issues.

    Of course the teachers won't if they're worried about union pressure. But at least the reporters should do their job.
