Ontario's Government Should Not Be For Sale

But it certainly appears that Premier Wynne has put out a big for sale sign by hosting high-priced private dinners for deep-pocketed insiders. Sadly, the premier has defended the indefensible by saying that corporate fundraising is part of the political process. She has attempted to justify her high-priced private dinners by claiming that everyday citizens have the same access as those ponying up $6,000 a plate. If this true, then for that price people must be getting some extra fine food. The premier and the political establishment dismiss critics of corporate fundraising by hiding behind the rules. Well, I say the rules stink.

Desperation Is Setting In For The Ontario Liberals

Rather than show real leadership and work with physicians, the Liberals, desperate to increase their popularity and to cover up their mismanagement of the health-care system, have chosen to vilify the one group of people that could reasonably have helped not only them, but the people of Ontario, in improving the health-care system.

Ontario's Hocus Pocus Budget

There's nothing magical about the ninth consecutive deficit, or the $296 billion in debt the province will have as of March 31. Nor in the nearly one billion per month in interest payments our government has us paying. But Wynne and Sousa's commitment that the budget will be balanced next year requires faith in the supernatural.

Free Tuition For Low-Income Students Is An Investment In Our People And Ontario

Hearing directly from students about issues they care deeply about was a great experience. As a Premier whose top priority is to ensure everyone can get a good job, it's my job to fix these problems. It's my job to erase any worries people have that a college or university education is out of reach. And it's my job to make it easier for more young people to continue learning and pursuing their passions after high school. That's why, as announced in last week's Ontario 2016 Budget, we are making the single-largest modernization of student financial assistance in the history of our province.

It's Time To Eliminate Ontario's Costly And Ineffective LHINs

In times of restraint like these, Health Minister Hoskins and Premier Wynne need to stop spending money on organizations like LHINs that have served no useful purpose for the general public in over 10 years of existence. The funds need to be re-dedicated to front-line health care so that we can address the growing needs of the populace.
