With­out Wynne

The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - OPINION -

The short-mem­o­ries of On­tar­i­ans, es­pe­cially those in the GTA, is fright­en­ing. The last time they were ready to dump the scan­dal-rid­den Lib­er­als it sim­ply dumped Dal­ton McGuinty, the au­thor of this ill-fated deal and all was for­given. This led to On­tar­i­ans re­ward­ing Kath­leen Wynne with a ma­jor­ity al­low­ing her to run roughshod over this have-not prov­ince, now buried with a $12 bil­lion deficit and $300 bil­lion debt.

Wynne sim­ply con­tin­ued with McGuinty’s mis­man­age­ment of the hy­dro file, see­ing On­tar­i­ans pay­ing the high­est priced elec­tric­ity in North Amer­ica. Now she has added a costly car­bon tax. Cana­dian com­pa­nies have fled to more ‘busi­ness friendly places’ and thou­sands of jobs have been lost.

Our ail­ing health­care con­tin­ues on life sup­port and has got­ten even worse un­der Wynne.

Yet, the sim­ple idea many On­tar­i­ans could still ‘stom­ach’ one of the worst and most fis­cally ir­re­spon­si­ble gov­ern­ments in the his­tory of On­tario, sim­ply if Wynne is shown the door, is mind­bog­gling. This is not down to just the leader of the Lib­eral gov­ern­ment, but the in­com­pe­tence and ar­ro­gance per­me­ates the en­tire party.

Wake up On­tar­i­ans, enough is enough and give the Lib­er­als the boot be­fore it can fur­ther wreck On­tario. Larry Comeau Ot­tawa
