Is On­tario re­ally that gullible?

RE: Pro­vin­cial budget

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

Sud­denly, it’s rain­ing money from Queen’s Park. Kath­leen Wynne is try­ing to con­vince the vot­ers in On­tario that things can be bet­ter and she, along with Charles Sousa, have found an­other pot of gold with which to buy an­other election.

Do they re­ally think that the public is re­ally that gullible? One has to be a Lib­eral syco­phant to believe that Wynne and Sousa will ac­tu­ally bal­ance the budget in this fis­cal year. When this prov­ince is over $311 bil­lion dol­lars in debt and count­ing, not even a fi­nan­cial wiz­ard would say that he or she would be able to bal­ance the budget, un­less you rob Peter to pay Paul.

Sousa prom­ises to give the health-care sys­tem an­other $7 bil­lion over the next three years. Where is this money com­ing from? Per­haps he should in­sist that the var­i­ous hos­pi­tals with bloated bu­reau­cra­cies and over­paid CEO’s not get any of that bor­rowed money.

Abra­ham Lin­coln said: “You can fool some of the peo­ple all of the time and all of the peo­ple some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the peo­ple all the time.” Words that Wynne and Sousa should keep in mind. Hans Sch­miede­berg, Burling­ton
