Firstly, the non-mobile link

Empire Co. Ltd.'s president and chief executive Michael Medline said it aims to “turbocharge” the Ottawa-based chain - which it values at $800-million - and double its business and footprint from its current base of 26 stores across the province over the next five years.

Oooh boy. I'm not sure this bodes well for Farm Boy.

Medline also assured the Ontario-based chain's customers Monday that they “would not see any changes in their Farm Boy shopping experience.”

“We do not want to ruin the magic of Farm Boy by trying to integrate them,” he said on the conference call.

I'm skeptical, but I hope this remains true.

It must take some real mental gymnastics for you to come to the conclusion you did.

Heres the thing. Not everyone is in some shit position they hate. Some people actually do like their jobs. Unfortunately, upper management changes and with it comes policy change. You sound like a person who spends 90% of their time and energy finding every and any reason to "fight the man". Your attitude is reactionary and short sighted.

Also, I did say that OP could go both ways. If your in a shit job, you are in a shit job, no amount of crying will save you in a shit job. Your best option is to find a better job. If you hate your job so much you are looking to fight your manager, your job must be real shit?

You know what the solution is when you have a shit job? Find a job that isnt shit.

No amount of government regulation will ever fix bad employers. However, OP might love their job and might just be extremely annoyed that this new Sunday meeting has just started and yeah, you can rock the boat. But you burn your bridges. Maybe you wait out the manager or supervisor, but you start fighting them here they find legal ways to make your life shit at work. You can enact all the laws you want to try and regulate it out, it will never happen.

What I am trying to say to OP, if the job is good and this is a one time inconvenience, maybe its worth the sacrifice to keep a good job.

If its a shit job, maybe its time to find a new one.

Your reply makes absolutely no sense to the context of my post. Ill take the downvotes, that reply is a sheer amount of mental gymnastic stupidity.

Your premise is flawed from the start. A good job doesn't make you come in for two hours of unpaid work.

I like how every one of your responses is just re-affirming that you are right without ever providing supporting evidence.

Its called basic human decency man. doesn't need to be taught in schools. Its showed by parents through example, plus there are people who don't agree with homosexuality. And guess what? That is completely okay in a truly free society. Shock for you I know. I fail to see how same sex relationships are different from hetero ones, except for the ovbious. People will continue to bully and its up to the victim to toughen the fuck up. Some of that shit you list is common sense if you have to be taught that the internet isnt really anonymous and anything you do can come back to haunt you. Is quite frankly an idiot.

Same reason most people don't buy alcohol online. People aren't that prepared. There will be a select few who buy in bulk in advance, but most people just want to stop at the store on their way home from work on a Friday afternoon.

If you drink 2 bottles of wine a week at $20 a bottle you're looking at $2,000 per year, and that's like 2 a glass or two a day. Hardly alcoholism. A decent botle of rye ever week is about the same and that's only about 2 drinks a day.

I would personally classify both of those scenarios as alcoholism. A 26oz bottle of rye a week is 3.7 oz a day. That's almost 4 drinks a day.

But then again I've still got vodka in my liquor cabinet from 2010 so I'm probably not the correct demographic here.

40oz. I think he was comparing it to two $20 bottles of wine per week, putting it at the $40 price point, or $2000/yr. That means you're looking at a 40 oz bottle and 5.7oz per day.

See below.

I was using a 26 Oz, but of a little better quality (which is probably more like $30 per week, but the point stands that it isn't unheard of to get $750 per year).

Do you think that the 90,000 job lost last months had anything to do with the mere months the PCs have spent in office? Or more to do with the last ditch efforts of the Wynne government to claw back from the 18% approval rating she was sporting last year?

And how about the disgusting decision to put off our hydro costs to a later generation to foot the bill for? Hoping the PCs can take the blame for that as well eh?

Oh and did we forget the attorney general calling her out on the illegal accounting practices that will almost surely beome the problem of a future government as well.

What mess? Seriously???

I do not, but it's also important to put those figures in context. We're up a few hundred thousand jobs since this time last year. It's important to figure out why we lost those 90,000 jobs, especially all at once, but as a whole our employment rate is still net positive. We've gained jobs this year.

And how about the disgusting decision to put off our hydro costs to a later generation to foot the bill for? Hoping the PCs can take the blame for that as well eh?

Governments finance things all the time. Debt is somewhat normal and expected. The issue I do have with hydro is the sheer amount that we've financed over 30 years. I take some issue with the Wynn governments green contract incentives insofar as I believe we kept giving them out longer than we should have. That is a problem that should have been addressed, but I don't think it qualifies as a "disaster". Nationally, Ontarians pay the most for hydro, but when compared internationally, our rates aren't actually that bad.

Oh and did we forget the attorney general calling her out on the illegal accounting practices that will almost surely beome the problem of a future government as well.

No contest here. Wynn should have listened to the AG.

All in all, our province is in pretty decent shape.

Everyone jumped all over Ford when he did that exactly thing regarding development in Toronto. The hypocrisy is real.

Voting is one of many ways to express your political beliefs.

As a citizen of this country, she has every right to express her political beliefs. Voting may currently not be an option, due to a blanket decision over the maturity and political grasp of minors and having to draw the line somewhere, but she can always make her voice heard in other ways. Every citizen of this country has the right to affect change.

Very mature to protest school. There are so many bigger issues with our education system but everyone choose to be up in arms over a few classes worth of sex-ed. If she was mature and not seeking attention she would look at opening up her own ways to educate youth.

Agreed.

but everyone choose to be up in arms over a few classes worth of sex-ed

It's a subset of conservatives who have chosen to be up in arms about the curriculum. Everybody else was fine with it as it was. Conservatives got up in arms about it, and now you're trying to shift the blame.

If she was mature and not seeking attention she would look at opening up her own ways to educate youth.

That is exactly what she's fucking doing. She's in grade 12. She's done with highschool. This has very little affect on her. Her stand is to ensure that the youth that come after her get the education they deserve.

We were already doing it. Why would everybody/anybody else do exactly the same thing at the same time?

The most reasonable course of action for any other country would be to wait and see the results of our study, an build upon the results of that. Change things that may need to be changed, and keep things that worked.

Finland just finished a version of basic income trial in their country. Why wouldn’t we just asked nicely for their data instead of running the same scheme in Ontario?

You won't find me arguing that we shouldn't have waited for the results of their study and expanded upon it (accounting for expected differences between cultures), but we didn't and that's no reason to throw the already spent $100M in a pile and set it up in flames.

Rickrolling stopped being a thing many years ago, nowadays people only do it ironically. It doesn't matter if the references are current, it matters if people know what they mean. I think people will look at this decades ago and say "wow, that was a weird thing people laughed about in the early 2000s".

Anyone tracking this government’s campaign promises that are now not honoured? Or the pull-out-of-my-hat extremely controversial measures that were never even mentioned on the campaign trail and that are now ‘will of the people’? It is very worrying that more politicians feel that once elected they owe more to themselves and their ‘values’ that to honour the program they were elected on. For goodness sake we’re electing representatives not kings and queens.

If you voted for him, if you’re his base, you must keep him accountable. He owes you that, if this needs be said.

PS: most politicians these days only care about their base, as in optics and perception, not to confuse with substance and genuine care.
