Voters need to look at the facts on Wynne
Kathleen Wynne’s unexpected concession on Saturday suggests that the Liberals are expecting a very horrible result on election day. I was quite deflated. I think Wynne has been a very good premier. She certainly doesn’t deserve the scorn and hate that’s been heaped upon her. This dislike is not rational. Her government has many accomplishments.
But once a narrative sets in about you or your government, it’s often hard to shake it. No matter how false.
Hillary Clinton was never quite able to shake her image as somewhat corrupt and mean-spirited, none of which she was. Bob Rae, the favourite whipping boy of Ontario politics, will never shake the narrative that he led a failed government. Which, again, was not true. Voters need to look at the facts.
