Updated articles and news

We have started Ontario Times as an online newspaper. The version we are using, connects to current stories and articles, but is simply intended to collect where the data comes from so we can embed that into the finished online newspaper version in the future.
Some of our own articles, like those below can be found on Central Ontario and we will, at a snails pace no doubt, fill in as we go along. It is itended to be more of a response site to news circulating in the area. Too much news in just a few hands can be as bad as no news at all!
Both of the above sites use the side slider for a menu so it is always available as are the 4 links on the bottom left corner of the slider clicking to each of the four major political parties.

"Why Doug Ford's attack on student press is an attack on journalism as a whole "

"The original story is here .." Read more. OUR OPINION: Where we come from that is called freedom of choice! Just like in real life, whether you buy a newspaper or not is your decision, not the Governments. Doug Ford is correct in making it a choice, these student newspapers now will serve the students, not the institution. If they have value to the students they will survive and if they don't they were a waste of time and money before.

English Language Debate

"We are of the opinion there was only one Prime Minister on that stage and it is Andrew Scheer, he won hands down!

9/17/19 - Quotes from The Rebel Media Click here to view the story and video.

"CBC or Liberal war room?
Comparing Trudeau and Scheer coverage from the state broadcaster"

"On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, we didn't have to look very far to find outrageous comparisons between how the CBC is covering Justin Trudeau's campaign trail compared to Andrew Scheer's".
"From choosing only the most flattering photos and reprinting word-for-word policy for the Liberals to spinning Andrew Scheer's reasonable statements until they're unrecognizable, the state broadcaster is doing everything in their power to make sure their party stays in power."
Our opninion: One has to wonder where the Governor General of Canada or the Senate stand on this disgraceful waste of public funds.

Fake News and Elections!

Contrary to what some might say the largest publishers of fake news are the news networks, not just newspapers. In most cases "eye, ear or click bait" headlines are used to pass on fake news. A simple sentence containing the fake message they want you to remember. Even if you read further the first part is usually loaded with innuendo instead of facts.
News Networks make these short statements with almost every story they report, so it's much easier for them to put out fake news.
Newsprint or social media, Both have a shelf life and can be easily fact checked. News networks simply move on and unless you record them or write down immediately what is said they are gone and the bait is in your thoughts.
Another "tell" is when stories start out positive about a person or party but end up giving more negative type statements as you read on or watch or listen. You can find this simple method of spreading fake news, almost, in all sources.

9/13/19 - According to taxpayer.com:

Did Trudeau keep his bugger promises?

"In the last election, Trudeau made a crystal clear promise:
"I am looking straight at Canadians and being honest the way I always have," said Trudeau during the 2015 election. "We've said we are committed to balanced budgets and we are. We will balance that budget in 2019."
Trudeau's 2019 budget has a $20-billion deficit."

9/11/19 - opinion

Should non-profit agencies be political?

You see more and more companies going political as the Federal Liberals are out their giving away hundreds of millions, of your money, to the news industry. The current group in Ottawa are running deficits beyond imagination or understanding into the billions of dollars.
Lots of non-profits, with massive executive cores and overheads, are jumping on the bandwagon to get involved. Many suffer from two tier overheads as they are supported by other non-profits, each of course with their own executives and overheads. It's become an industry gone wild and now getting political.

About Us:

We are NOT: kawartha411, kawarthacu, kawarthadairy, kawarthadowns, kawarthagolf, kawarthalakes, kawarthanow, mykawartha, or thekawarthas (never realized there was more than one Kawartha Region). What we are is KAWARTHA.com.

We registered KAWARTHA on March 8, 1997 with the .com, commercial use extension. That's well over 22 years ago - time flies but honesty and integrity are constants.

D.B. Sutherland, Sir Sandford Fleming College's first President, challenged us, in 1968, with the following suggestion, in the College's first yearbook:
"All of us who are members of Sir Sandford Fleming - governors, students and faculty - have a responsibility here. If we constantly choose the timid, the safe and the known, we will no doubt win the approval of the good, grey majority who never look much beyond the day's sunset.
But the deed will show, and posterity will know. Let us hope their verdict will not be that we drove off into the future with our eyes resolutely fixed on the rear view mirror."

After working five years at CGE we decided to attend the new College, Sir Sandford Fleming, SSFC, as a mature student with a grade ll eduation and 5 years of factory work. We graduated with two diplomas from full time courses, the first to do so, and started a lengthy 20-year career in our chosen field.
Upon completion we decided to work with computers in a retail environment and ended up being the first internet provider in the Peterborough and Lindsay Region and were also the first to offer the full WWW suite; DNS, design and hosting.
To follow the explored road is always easy, to venture into the unknown is the challenge he requested of us, having others follow makes the journey worthwhile.
We Let The Deed Show!
