DEMISE OF A 'FAT CAT'

It wasn’t supposed to be this way when the New Democrats swept to power in Ontario in September, 1990. They took over the traditional “fat cat” of Confederation, the economic engine of the nation, and they had plans to dole out benefits to the workers of their land.

Big Brother made respectable

On a Friday afternoon, a guy goes into one of those big chain video stores. His goals are limited. He doesn’t want to rent the newest Hollywood blockbuster. He wants to rent The Naked Gun 21/2 (not for himself). This isn’t his neighborhood store, but it is on the way home from work, and it is so big that it must have at least half a dozen copies of The Naked Gun 21/2 (not for himself), so he fights his way into the congested parking lot and goes inside, where he quickly finds the movie and takes it to the counter.
