Mr. Sorbara does not want a cabinet post because he wants more time with his family. On the surface that sounds fair enough because he has dedicated a lot time to the party and the recent campaign. However, I find this a little hard to digest right after running for reelection. I could see this if he said he had not run again .
Could there be more to this? Maybe he was not going to get the nod for the finance portfolio and he is miffed. Maybe it is time for another conspiracy theory that Mr. Dion and Federal Liberals don’t need right now. We must remember that Mr. Sorbara was a big reason that Bob Rae became a Liberal and ran in the Liberal leadership race. Could Mr. Sorbara be eyeing a Federal seat and then promoting a draft Bob leadership movement?? We don’t need this but you heard it here first.

In a recent decision the Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal turned down a request by Aquafarms to remove nearly 12 billion litres of water from its property south west of Collingwood and to be keep to the 10 billion litres in the current 5 year term. This shows that maybe at last the amount being with drawn form the Georgian Bay water shed is being reviewed and we can stop the constant dropping of water levels in Georgian Bay. A future review may actually reduce the amount. We can only hope and keep up the pressure to protect our water..

Tory does a back track because the polls show religious funding is a non starter with the citizens of Ontario. He says he will allow a free vote in the legislature. The vote that really counts in Ontario is the one next Wednesday. The funding is a central plank in the Conservative agenda for Ontario. If the party is soundly defeated in the upcoming election then the people of Ontario will have given their answer to the idea of faith based funding.
