Grits made On­tario have-not prov­ince

North Bay Nugget - - OPINION -

the fol­low­ing is in re­sponse to the let­ter en­ergy min­is­ter fires back which ap­peared July 30. to the ed­i­tor: sud­bury MPP and en­ergy Min­is­ter glenn thibeault is blow­ing smoke on clean air. our smog comes from the ohio val­ley. the five coal-fired stacks the Lib­er­als elim­i­nated didn’t mean any­thing to on­tario air, it only raised our hy­dro rates.

he’s gloat­ing over re­duced hy­dro rates, but all he did was kick the can down the road.

Lib­er­als have made on­tario a have-not prov­ince. they dec­i­mated the eco­nomic en­gine of Canada, put us $300 bil­lion in the hole and are sell­ing as­sets be­cause they have run out of things to tax. We are pay­ing $1 bil­lion a month to ser­vice debt.

the Lib­er­als wasted bil­lions on smart me­ters, gas plant can­cel­la­tions for self-serv­ing pur­poses and use­less ornge he­li­copters.

It goes on and on, the out­ra­geous spend­ing and no plan to pay it back.

health care sucks, doc­tors are not paid prop­erly, nurses are get­ting laid off and hos­pi­tals are cut­ting back (such as sud­bury’s hos­pi­tal laun­dry be­ing sent to hamil­ton and pa­tients be­ing put in clos­ets and hall­ways).

the four-lan­ing of high­way 69 is not done and is cost­ing bil­lions, when it was sup­posed to cost $1 bil­lion.

the piper hasn’t come to knock on the door yet, but he will and it will be bru­tal.

any­way, hy­dro can­not be made af­ford­able. all the Lib­er­als did was go to one-month billing to fool the un­in­formed and naive. only dis­as­ter looms. I can’t be­lieve Post­media even printed this hog­wash. some will be­lieve it, but you can’t be­lieve any­thing a Lib­eral says. Fred Lammi Capreol
