Until late March of 2016, Ontario’s Amber Alert system notified television watchers of child abductions without interrupting programming. That changed in late March 2016. CRTC approval was given to a system that interrupts TV and radio programming, forcing the consumer of TV/radio programming to miss the content they have paid to watch. On April 27, 2016, Dan Brown of the London Free Press wrote a report concerning his interview of Paul McKeever, leader, Freedom Party of Ontario, regarding the changes to the Amber Alert system.

August 6, 2011 – Columnist Ian McCallum at the St. Thomas Times-Journal’s (SunMedia/Canoe), in his Saturday, August 6, 2011 City Scope column, has selected his quote of the week. Excerpt:


“We want to have schools where the focus of education is reading, writing and arithmetic . . . we think we should leave divine revelation to the churches, the synagogues and the mosques.”

Freedom Party leader and Elgin-Middlesex-London candidate Paul McKeever in an interview this week with the T-J to unveil the party’s final plank for the fall provincial vote.

Be sure to bookmark and read the St. Thomas Times-Journal which, so far, appears more committed to local coverage of the Ontario election than most other newspapers in the province. Paul McKeever is Freedom Party of Ontario’s candidate in the riding of Elgin-Middlesex-London, which includes St. Thomas, so the St. Thomas Times-Journal may also prove to be a valuable news source about province-wide issues discussed by Ontario’s political party leaders as election day (October 6, 2011) approaches.

On November 16, 1992, an Ontario Human Rights Commission Board of Inquiry commenced a 10 day hearing in the matter of Chippheng Hon v. Elijah Elieff (COM. No. 20-1775). Hon was a tenant of Elieff’s apartment buildings. Hon was originally from Cambodia, and Elieff was originally from Macedonia. Each had difficulties with the English language. In her complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Commission, Hon alleged that Elieff had subjected her to harassment due to her “ethnic origin”. Although her complaint was initiated in 1989 – three years before the hearing began – counsel for the commission was allowed to add “race” as a basis of harassment on day 1 of the hearings. She was also permitted to add as a respondent the owner of the apartment buildings, which was not Elieff, but a corporation in which Elieff was a shareholder. Freedom Party president Robert Metz took an interest in the hearings, which were being held in London, Ontario, so he attended them. He quickly grew concerned by what he witnessed.

Freedom Party’s Jack Plant (later to be party leader) researched the press coverage of Elieff and his Cheyenne Apartments at London’s public library, and made photocopies of the London Free Press articles that he there found about the subject. The articles would assist Metz in his successful defence of Elieff. These are the articles that Plant copied, and upon which Metz relied. A number of post-hearing articles are included below, also, having been added to Freedom Party’s newspaper clippings file for the Elieff matter. Continue reading »
