If you are a job-seeker (like myself) looking for work in Ontario, to quote a line from “Star Trek III: The Search For Spock”, I hope pain is something you enjoy. Don’t expect to find gainful steady work in Ontario for the next 4 years.
The people of Ontario had an opportunity to remove a scandal-ridden spendthrift Liberal government that has lost touch with reality, and has turned a province once the economic engine of Canada into the biggest welfare recipient ever. Our economy is stagnant, creating low-wage part-time jobs that hundreds of thousands of people across generations fight over like cats over a fish. Many families are without family doctors and endure lengthy wait times to see a specialist. Companies are downsizing and moving jobs either out west to Alberta or farming them overseas to India and Singapore.
With all of this in mind, what do the voters of Ontario do? We not only vote them back in, we give them a majority government. We won’t be able to, to use the election expression, “throw da bumz out” for the next 4 years.
Ontarians will now be forced to join a mandatory pension plan that is in essence a new tax on both the employee and employer, so expect more jobs to go bye-bye. Continued investments in the all-day kindergarten program will sap desperately-needed revenue from other services that are falling apart, such as the electrical system, sanitation, hospitals, and roads. Public sector workers will continue to receive generous wage increases while private sector workers will continue to labour and toll to the beat of that hit song “Do more with less! Downsize! Downsize!” sung by businesses. That is, those businesses that still are crazy enough to want to stay here.
Ontario is headed for a social and economic collision course, but Ontarians still have a chance to demand change for the better. I urge Ontarians to write their elected MPP and tell them that they have a lot of work ahead of them to make Ontario live up to the slogan “Good things grow in Ontario”. If the MPPs do not, then we will “throw da bumz out” in 2018.
Ontario is yours to recover, but only if you don’t let a majority Liberal government rife with scandal destroy this province. It’s up to us.
Thanks for reading.
