“Hey kiddo
I appreciate you reading the story. maybe when you grow up and meet an intelligent well rounded women (such as my wife or many who responded to the story) you'll have a little more depth and life experience. Keep on trying and you'll get there.
By the way, next time you respond to a comment or story, have your Mom check the spelling and ensure you put capital on the right letters.

“someone has deep seated repressed emotions.. like their wife.

Look when other young men talk about them having a baby, i dont get mad. (like their wife hearing the carer oriented women) because i have no regrets, intentions, unfulfilled goals ect

Your wife clearly does have this deep seated anger from an unfulfiled life. I was laughing mostly thought because you wrote ""feminist" moms who, bring the lids to day care, go to work, the salon, drinks with the girls etc. "

believe it or not most working ladies arent self identified "feminists". what i got from that was "my wife gets mad when she sees other women with a strong self and career, take time for themselves, and have a normal social life with other women". How dare she!!!

You may have 2 well raised children but you have 1 pretty confused and unfulfilled wife. I will learn how to spell, you learn how to ave your marriage, deal?”

“Here's an opinion from the "y" chromosome.
That was the funniest article I've read for some time.
When my wife and I started our family, my wife who originally did not want children, decided the best thing for our kids, was to follow a long and proud tradition of being a Mom. This difficult choice has come with hardship on both of us, but that is what being a parent is about. one of her greatest compliments comes from teachers who comment on how rounded and secure my two children are knowing that Mom is home when needed and dedicates herself as her full time job to ensuring when all is said and done, we have raised two wonderful human beings to send out into the world.
The only time she ever feels anger with what she has choosen as her present "career" path is when the "feminist" moms who, bring the lids to day care, go to work, the salon, drinks with the girls etc. ask her what she does with all her free time.
There seems to be an unspoken competition that everything outside of the hardest job you'll ever have is more important and to belittle what generations of women have naturally done. I think in two very large ways (my son and daughter) my wife is changing the world for the good.
let's get behind moms, instead of degrading the most important job the world has”

“Let's review what a great premier Dalton was.
For Sale: 1 Skydome
1 Ontario Place
Go transit refurbishment contract that went to a Quebec firm instead of Ontario, the huge Power Plant oops, using the Teachers to win an election and then stabbing them in the back, giving himself and all other MPP's a big raise when he took office and yes let's not forget the HST initiated as the largest tax increase to Ontarians during the beginning of the largest recession of our generation.
Yes how great he was...”

“Well thought out and written article. More people should understand the hardship and eloquence of our Canadian military, and realize the amount of work they accomplish world wide from such a relatively small county.”

“I'm glad to see that while the people of Elliot Lake are going through the worst tragedy in recent memory you are sitting in Toronto worrying about some traffic on the Gardiner. As a member of a mine rescue team at a remote mine in Northern Ontario the rescuers made absolutely the right decision to stop the rescue and find a safer way. It is easy to sit a your desk and type how this was " Not a very commendable moment." well lets stick you under tonnes of unstable iron and concrete with the country watching hopefully and see how well your next story comes out!
The rescue team made a very difficult decision to wait and get proper equipment and continue without further loss of life. No it wasn't the prodding of the Premier it was experience and diligence.”

“Totally agree F&F. Got into emergency response almost 40 years ago with a vol FD and eventually switched into emergency and public safety work full time. One of the basics of incident management is developing strategies and tactics that are reasonably likely to be successful with the resources available - and at the very least not be killing off your troops simply to create the illusion of doing something that simply can't be done with what you have to work with. Anybody with half a century in urban media like Mr Worthington has probably attended or been exposed to numerous emergency events over the decades and those handling them. He really should know better.”

“Thank you for so clearly and eloquently stating what I was thinking and feeling as I read Worthington's opinions.”

“It is an honour to be the first to fan you. Just being a member of a mine rescue team would justify that fanning, but your comment would have earned you a fanning anyway. I do wonder if Peter (or any of the others so critical of the decision) have even taken a first aid course, because one of the things they stress in those courses is that the FIRST thing you do is evaluate the dangers, and find a way to mitigate them before you try and help, to avoid giving the next person trying to help another victim to rescue.”
