McGuinty’s Men – Voter Beware
In two of the most prominent Ontario cities, Toronto and Ottawa, the McGuinty Liberals are trying to get their men in. In Ottawa it looks like a done deal for Jim Watson, a testimony to the short memories and fiscal imprudence of Ottawa voters. In Toronto, it is a tight race, with Ontario Minister of Health, George Smitherman battling it out with business man Rob Ford. Grab hold of your wallets, Ontarians, we are in deep trouble. Smitherman has overseen a flurry of scandals in the Minstry of Health, at a time when patients, not bureaucrats, could really have used the money. Instead it is gone – gone to consultants and used to pay ludicrous severances. Let us hope that at least in Toronto the McGuinty’s are foiled. Cities in debt, the province in debt, all that money is going to come out of our pockets eventually. Thank goodness provincial governments can’t print money.
Vote Today – even if you cannot prevent a Watson Mayoral victory, you can send a message. If you don’t vote, you lose your voice.
