  1. Sadly like our friends to the south, it looks like too many in Ontario doesn’t understand that politicians to “tell it like it is” really means “tell us what we want to hear.”

    Won’t it be great when the gas tax is lowered, but the oil companies increase the price to make up for the gap? We’ll be paying the same amount for gas, but the province will get less tax revenue to pay for education, health care, etc. and the oil companies will make even more profits.

    Won’t it be great when Ford doesn’t find as much “waste” as he hoped, and ends up cutting essential services instead?

    Won’t it be great when other countries lead in innovation in clean energy, clean emissions, making billions from their investment in such technology? And we’ll get nothing because we decided that “it wasn’t Ontarians’ fault” and decided to prop up the already rich fossil fuel industry and do nothing about carbon emissions.

    Great job Ontario. Looks like we’ll get what we deserve.

    Sadly, we’ll get what we voted for.
