Subject: Subject: MTO careless with photo ID mailout

Dear Daily Digest:

In May 2017 I went to the local ServiceOntario offices to renew my Ontario driver's license. No change of address was involved.  After paying the fee, they gave me a 3-month temporary MTO license in the form of a paper document to keep in my wallet.  The actual photo license was to be mailed to me by MTO. 

After the three months had expired, I realized I had not yet received the plastic photo Driver's License ID card. Returning to the ServiceOntario office, I was told that it's my problem, not theirs and so I must pay $32 for a replacement.  The ServiceOntario officer phoned MTO to check that the undelivered item was mailed.  However, he said his hands are tied: it's policy that I pay again to replace the card I never received. 

I explained that, since I had already paid for my Driver's License, it was MTO's responsibility to deliver it.  Why don't they use postal tracking? Or, for better security, they could courier batches of licenses to their ServiceOntario office and have license applicants come in to pick them up and sign off.  In an age of terrorism, MTO's current system of untracked mail-outs leaves citizens vulnerable to identity card theft, and the nonsense that we could pay twice, since they don't track delivery.

Just a thought, but  if one is a consultant, paid for their opinion, could there be pay involved in such a letter, by  John Felstead?

Reason for asking, If we let the corporations rule the world, as in the book of the same name, by David Korten, would this be an  example of  monetizing  public opinion,  since corporations were invented to do money and profit maximization and would take over governance of the world  to
make profits,  not help mankind, eh?

For an example, consider Don Mackinnon of the Power Workers Union, formerly the head man there, writes copious letters for the expensive Nuclear Industry in favour of their  being the power source of choice! Who pays for his efforts, the Union members?

Might be a good thing to check, eh?

Subject: Protest, protests, protests.

I am tired of �protestors� who gather in our towns and cities to whine abut some issue or another. It is irrelevant what issue has their shorts in a knot today. Most are self-centred, hedonists with some idiotic cause or hurt they want considered. It is amazing how so many people can gather for a protest while most people are working for a living and paying taxes on their earnings.

It is incomprehensible why any group of people claiming to be protestors are given so much media and political attention. They are not elected and speak only for themselves. They demand that we change our governance and society to conform to their ideology of the day. Another group will form with an opposing ideology to protest the first group. The kindergarten wars are underway!

We have groups demanding that our aboriginal people be allowed to live in the way that their ancestors did � fishing, hunting and living off the land. Then they protest that no one should wear animal furs or hides while others claim that anyone who is not a strict vegan is an abominable meat-eating Neanderthal.

Other groups demand that we all give up all forms of fossil fuels to �save the environment�. They are wearing eye glasses with plastic frames, wearing synthetic shoes, belts and clothing while they surf social media sites on cell phones, tablets and laptops that could not exist without petroleum based components. Their electric cars are junk without petroleum lubricants and petroleum by-products used in the on-board computers and insulation for the wiring. The same is true of wind-driven generators and solar panels.

The hypocrisy of their conflicting positions is hilarious. They are walking oxymorons. They never consider the fallout from or ramifications of their proposals.

Tearing down statues of historical figures or changing the names on streets and buildings accomplishes nothing. History remains, as much as some want to bury our less than stellar past. Societies evolve over time as we strive to become better than our grandfathers. The notion that all people are created equal is nonsense; we are created with equal opportunity. What we do with our lives is up to us � we can wallow in past hurts as an excuse for poverty or gain an education through experience and better ourselves. We can be schooled, but without experience, we remain uneducated.

Many protest groups are infiltrated by provocateurs who teach them to engage in unlawful practices such as trespass (occupation of property) and passive resistance if the police enforce the law. We should ignore protestors if they are peaceful and prosecute the participants if they engage in unlawful activities. If they riot or engage in assaults or property damage, they must be arrested and charged.

As long as we look on from the sidelines, the tactics will continue and people will get hurt or killed. If protestors are arrested and wind up with a criminal record, it will be much more difficult for provocateurs to convince others to engage in unlawful acts. Our freedom of expression is important, but has limits. In Canada, promoting discrimination based on race is prohibited under the Human Rights Act and advocating or promoting hate is prohibited under the Criminal Code. We need to make it clear we will not allow or condone discrimination or hatred by enforcing those laws.

We need to require people who announce they are going to hold a protest to post a peace bond to offset the costs of policing if the protest turns violent. That will deter many rag-tag groups from taking to the streets.
