The Ontario election – Last chance to restore fiscal sanity

The third and final leaders’ debate is over. It is the only one that I bothered to watch, as it was by far the most important, and I wanted to see how the leaders performed in view of their relative standings going into the final stretch.

My primary reaction was annoyance at socialist (NDP) leader Andrea Horwath’s incessant interruption of her opponents, particularly conservative (PC Ontario) leader Doug Ford, while they were taking their turns to speak. She came dead last. Incumbent Premier Kathleen Wynne (Liberal) was polished and articulate, but with hundreds of billions of dollars in debt and one billion per month just in interest payments, she is beyond redemption.

The trials and tribulations of Wynne’s health-care cutbacks

As we are all too aware in Ontario, the provincial government, led by lesbian Premier Kathleen Wynne, has been spending money and piling up deficits literally by the billions. What might be somewhat less known, is that Wynne has been cutting back on funding for the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) at the same time. Prescribed medications and other services are being de-listed (i.e. no longer paid for by OHIP), and there have already been accusations that Wynne is budgeting on the backs of the elderly and sick.

Liberal priorities versus human life – death by waiting list

“Hello. I’m Laura Hillier: I’m in the ICU . . . I can’t breathe. Soon, a tube will be stuck down my throat again. And for feeding as well. And I won’t be able to talk. They said I may not wake up but I really hope I do. But if I don’t, I hope this never happens to anyone ever again. And that the government sees that there needs to be funding. Because people are dying when we can save them. We can save these people. Please help. Thank you.”

These words are taken from the Toronto Star news item “Plea from dying teen: Please help” (1), and were recorded by Laura Hillier several months before her death at the age of 18 from acute myeloid leukemia.

Trudeau’s “melting pot” of collectivist totalitarianism

“Up to this point in our political evolution, it was understood that a primary role for a Canadian prime minister was one of nation-building. As a prototype, we can look to the founding of our country, whereby the fathers of confederation envisioned a federalist nation united coast-to-coast by the Canadian Pacific Railway… At present, however, we find our current prime minister desirous of negating the foundations of our national heritage. It is prudent to keep in mind that when a decision is made to eradicate a nation’s historical identity, something concrete will be required to serve as a replacement.”

Premier Wynne “budgeting on the backs of the elderly and sick”

“…we are always told that we need more immigrants to pay for our pensions and health costs as we get older. But the fact remains that all the people we import to pay for “us” will soon need more imports to pay for “them”, and this will go on and on until the system undergoes a catastrophic collapse.”

Socialism is Blind

Re “Higher taxes answer to closing wealth gap: Broadbent Institute” (David Akin, Dec 16): Once again, the socialists are too blinded by altruism and ideology to see the damage that can be caused by their flawed thinking. Taxing the rich and giving to the poor will destroy the incentive to work hard and create wealth, thus reducing the amount of wealth available for distribution…
