Alert! Chickens heading to roost in McGuinty's Ontario
By John R. Bolton
McGuinty's record of incompetence must be a record in itself. Huge deficits, green energy boondoggles, E-health, OLG, eco-taxes and constant pandering to unions. Dubious and disgusting accomplishments for someone who controls the public purse. Dalton has been a one man wrecking crew.
Calgary - September 12, 2012 - Prior to the Ontario election last year I wrote a blog post about how it's the job of conservatives to come in and clean up the mess after party's on the left run Ontario into the ground. During that campaign Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak was setting himself up to be the next Mike Harris of Ontario. Harris' name has (wrongfully) been mud since he had to come to the rescue after former Premier Bob Rae turned Ontario finances bright red. Just think of the clean up job Hudak would have had in store if he had won the 2011 election. Just think of the resulting hatred and vitriol directed his way from the left when he had to do it for the good of Ontario taxpayers.
Ontario PC supporters felt awful when Dalton McGuinty got re-elected on October 6th last year and they were also perplexed. How could anyone vote for a man who runs up the tab like Dalton? McGuinty's record of incompetence must be a record in itself. Huge deficits, green energy boondoggles, E-health, OLG, eco-taxes and constant pandering to unions. Dubious and disgusting accomplishments for someone who controls the public purse. Add the recent ORNGE scandal and Oakville power plant cancellation and stomach acid begins to bubble down below. Dalton has been a one man wrecking crew and the Liberal voters of Ontario have been the tools of his destruction.
Now back to Tim. I’m sure he felt the loss in that election more than anyone. Many pundits, including me, thought he blew it. Maybe so, but remember McGuinty lost his first kick at the can too. I'm here to tell Tim and the people on the 'right' side of the political spectrum in Ontario losing that election was the best thing that could have happened to you and the province... The chickens are coming home to roost. McGuinty has made the mess, won the election and now he's got to clean it up. Good ole Dalton has told the teachers in the province he's freezing their wages, because the money has run dry. Naturally the unions and their members aren't happy with Dalton. After all, they spent millions on the guy to keep him in the big chair at Queen's Park. They're going to war with McGuinty and as much as I think they're dead wrong, I hope they take him down. For Dalton it's only the first round as more unions come to the table looking for him to repay them for their support. The word schadenfreude comes to mind. Tim Hudak will get another chance to be premier in the very near future and McGuinty will go where other premiers of Ontario go after they screw up Canada's biggest province... Ottawa. The same sheeple who voted for him in Ontario will support him there.
In conclusion and to sum things up. I've said for a long time that public sector employees should not be in unions and recent events in Europe, the United States and now in Ontario are proving me and many others right. Tim Hudak should rejoice in the union troubles of Dalton and look forward to a future at Queen's Park. He may be taking a hard line with the unions just like Dalton, but sensible voters know he didn't dig the hole and public sector costs have to be controlled. For those of you looking to Andrea Horwath and the NDP to come to the rescue... The dippers think Dalton is being too hard on the teachers. Hard to believe isn't it? That's why they're called the loony left.
