Ontario Liberals Win Again

October 7th, 2011 ernie Posted in Ontario Election No Comments »

The incumbent Ontario Liberals received a slap on the wrist from voters, being reduced from a majority to a minority government with voter turnout at only 47.6%, the lowest in history. This is the 3rd term for the Ontario liberals and it is unfortunate that the Ontario voters allowed this to occur, however the conservatives can only blame themselves.

Ontario Liberals – Ready to Make a Change

The Ontario electors were ready to make a change, however with a lackluster campaign by Mr. Hudak and his party, the voting public decided they wanted to vote for the party they knew even with the lies of Premier McGuinty! But they did not give him a majority! At least we got that right so that the liberals will not be able to increases our taxes easily. With the NDP and Conservatives controlling the votes, we should actually get some good governing from this next Ontario provincial  government.

Ontario Election – Another Liberal Government

October 4th, 2011 ernie Posted in Ontario Election No Comments »

It is increasingly looking like it will be another Liberal government after the Ontario Election. Many people just cannot believe this is going to happen. It is not because they like the current incumbent, McGuinty! The majority of people know he lies and will do and say whatever he needs to in order to stay in power. The problem is that the competition from the conservatives is just not enough to convince voters they should vote conservative. What a shame! We are updating this post several years later. Although McGuinty has resigned amid shame and controversy, it looks like the liberals are still going to be voted in again . What is wrong with Ontario?

Post Ontario Election

And what a squandered opportunity. After the election is over and we have the final results , chances are that the conservatives will sit back and assess the situation. They need to decide if they should have been harder hitting with their policy and their positions. But it will be too late by that time. In fact 3 days before voting day it is already to late. Barring some major mistake by either party, it is pretty much a done deal as far as the pollsters are concerned.

Liberals in a Panic in Ontario

September 30th, 2011 ernie Posted in Ontario Election 1 Comment »

Liberals in a Panic in OntarioIf you can believe some of the news reports, the Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Premier Dalton McGuinty is in a panic that not only will he lose the election, he could lose to the conservatives in a big way giving them a majority. With the liberals in a panic in Ontario, the big guns come out. It is too bad for Ontario if he wins! He is busy promising more jobs and more spending to try and trying to buy votes in Ontario’s election. Does this sound familiar? I think that it does and it is typical of the liberals and the party in power to realize at the last minute that they could be kicked out in favor of a new party.

There is another reason that every one should consider which way they vote in this election. We know that the liberals have lied to us over the past years. They have promised us all kinds of things and then reneged on the promises. They have raised taxes significantly over the past 8 years and driven business out of the province. The reality is though that all politicians are really no better, so it is quite likely that I would be saying the same thing had the conservatives been in power for the past 8 years. So why not just leave the liberals in power?

Ontario’s Budget Increases

September 29th, 2011 ernie Posted in Ontario Election 1 Comment »

It appears to be common knowledge that the Liberals have more than doubled spending over the past 8 years that they have been in power. Even in this election they are talking about Ontario’s Budget Increases and increasing our taxes even more than they already are. Does anyone have concrete figures that support these commonly held notions about the increases. I tend to believe them but would like to see some facts on this particular subject. Hopefully the Ontario electorate will not put up with this and vote them out of office.

Knowing that the liberals as a rule tend to spend money a lot more than the conservatives, I am not surprised. They dole it out to supporters and they have had a number of really bad errors in the past 8 years. One of the most notable was the health systems squandering of over a million dollars for computer systems that still do not work.

McGuinty’s tax Increases for Ontario

September 23rd, 2011 ernie Posted in Ontario Election 1 Comment »

McGuinty's tax Increases for OntarioMcGuinty’s tax increases for Ontario have increase a lot. Wondering about the tax increases over the past seven year. Here is what our Premier has done for Ontario in the past seven years. and there is more coming ; the smart meter tax and the Ontario Carbon tax! It is time to wake up Ontario! More tax Increases for Ontario are coming.

Note: we did not write this, it was passed on as part of an email campaign to us. We thought it was too good to not pass along to our readers. If you were the writer please let us know and we will add your name to this post.

Of course the liberals will say that the conservatives would have and will do the same thing. After all someone has to pay for the increasing costs. This is true, but then if you control your costs like the average household perhaps you would not have to add all of these taxes!

Smart Meters for Electrical Usage – Another tax

September 22nd, 2011 ernie Posted in Ontario Election 1 Comment »

Smart Meters for Electrical UsageWell the folks in the province of Ontario, are going to be hit with another tax! It seems that the province has spent $850 m to install Smart Meters for Electrical Usage around the province. Now they want to charge 75 cents a month for two years to recover some of these costs. It was not enough to raise the rates, install smart meters and force us into doing laundry at night and on weekends. We now have to pay for these meters which we did not want in the first place.

There is an election in Ontario right now and we vote on Oct 2nd. Surely we can send a message to the liberals in power at the moment. Either give them a minority or send them packing! It is just disgusting the way they have raised our taxes to an unbelievable level in this province. We are one of the highest taxed governments in north America.  No wonder we are losing jobs, business does not want to move here and many are moving out of the province.

Ontario Carbon Tax

September 21st, 2011 ernie Posted in Ontario Election 1 Comment »

Were there is smoke there is usually a fire and that is exactly what we think about a Liberal comment by Brant MPP Dave Levac who told a Brantford newspaper that a new Ontario carbon tax was being reviewed by the Liberal Government. He claims he made a mistake and confused another program with this proposal.

Do you believe him? We do not and we think that it was intentionally a foot in the mouth moment.  The Ontario liberals have a habit of increasing taxes for people who live in Ontario and this is one more that the liberals will add if they get re-elected.  All you need to do is take a look at some of the conservative advertising to see how many taxes they have added in the past 8 years. Of course we all know that you cannot trust Dalton to say anything that is true. He is probably the worst leader we have had in some time and we actually voted him in for two terms!

Ontario Carbon Tax – Watch out

So we think that Ontario had better look out. If the population votes another liberal government into power in this election, there is going to be a new Ontario Carbon tax for us to pay. It is pretty much guaranteed.  Of course some people will say that the conservatives will do the same and we should go for experience by voting the liberals back into power.
