    'Morning Bret and everyone. Doug, I completely understand you as I wouldn't want the NDP to be running the show over here either. Doug, I have been considering the move to alpha-bravo, but it involved going during the 3rd year of my apprenticeship, so I can cut the process down by a year and go for the big bucks as a journeyman early on. The Mrs. isn't too keen on the idea of going now but didn't give a definite no either. Gonna take more yapping.

    Art the NDP here would make Obamanomics look right wing/tea party buddy......their manifesto is to take EVERYONE's wealth at death that would/could/should be willed to their heirs and direct it all to the state......I'd love to see that happen......might cure these BC flakey fruits and nuts once and for all.....

    Geeze MR.... you moved 1/2 way around the world once.....what's another 2400 miles...? When you start selling some of those guns for food......you'll be ready....
    BTW...do you know what union rate is in Alberta........................................... .................................................. ..............................................it's called minimum wage.....
    REALLY? Damn here we were thinking of hitting up the mainland in a few years. So now the decision is communism vs. Torontonians. Well.....when I put it that way, Id almost rather live in Great best of all Korea, North Korea!

    Oh Canada please stand on guard for me.

    Sorry for all the broken sarcasm detectors. The gruppyness is strong with this one.

    In other news passed my basic/block 2/first time you get laid off to go to school. Now I hear about it when I F up. One step forward...two steps back. And im expected to start passing my knowledge down to first years now. Joys of apprenticeship.

    Doug, do you see the great new institution that Ontario has brought in? A yearly rate to keep your license under the guise of actually doing stuff for you as an apprentice and journeyman.

    Thank god Ontario now has a system to review training ratios all the time when there is more workers than work.
    Get money, get paid.

    Yeah, but when you get your action from the government there's no dinner and a movie involved , it's just tax, tax, thank you man.

    'Morning Bret and everyone. Ray, since I'm not officially a part of the team and only deal with the TSSA for now, is the college of trades an actual government body or a "designated authority" like TSSA? Note to our friends from outside of Ontario: TSSA regulates gas fitters and some other trades, but it's not a government organization. It's a private organization to whom the government has just given regulatory authority.
