Liberals running truth, fiscal deficit

On power, Duncan took a grid with 130 per cent power generation from affordable and abundant for industry and residents to one of rationing and exorbitant rates.

Election season is here and Dwight Duncan knows what this election is about. He claims it’s about health care, energy and jobs.   On health care waste, $1 billion e-health scandal, $250 million spent on the health care bureaucracy and local health integration networks.

The Ontario health premium, tax, fee or donation depending on the phrase of the day -this money grab goes to the general fund.

On power, Duncan took a grid with 130 per cent power generation from affordable and abundant for industry and residents to one of rationing and exorbitant rates.

Duncan claims had he not intervened, that we’d have rolling blackouts.

Had he travelled to Ohio where the 2003 power outage originated, he would have learned it was from a software bug, known as a race condition which existed in energy management system.

The power outage wasn’t caused because of an absence of Liberal solar and wind projects. Duncan would have you believe otherwise.

He claims he’ll phase out coal yet again, and coal use is up 29 per cent. Duncan admits there will be a 70 per cent rise on electrical rates over 20 years, a best-case scenario.

What he fails to calculate is how much industry will vacate Ontario over the coming years when his energy plans come to fruition, or how his government would have to spread that revenue loss over existing customers.

Better than any tax cut to individuals or industry is affordable and abundant electricity. Duncan has pursued the opposite and the result is a stagnant economy.

We now learn that his promised 50,000 green jobs by 2012 are nothing more than 1,500 heavily taxpayer-subsidized jobs.

This government isn’t only running one of Ontario’s largest fiscal deficits but they are running a truth deficit as well. The recession began when many Ontarians lost their jobs.

The recovery begins when the Liberals lose theirs.

  1. Amen to that! Liberals can`t loose their jobs soon enough!
    And it`s up to all of us, to spread the word, speak out/up,
    around all of our families,friends,co-workers,and everyone we encounter, who will listen & learn. There has never been a more
    important election in Ontario.For the future prosperity of ourselves,& our children, & theirs!!!

  2. The “leaders” of this Province like every other leader in the World should take notice of Egypt’s struggles and the outcome that eventually will “out” the false claims and spin that is being forced on honest and and hard working people!

    Quit LYING!

  3. “The recession began when many Ontarians lost their jobs.
    The recovery begins when the Liberals lose theirs.”

    Truer words were never spoken!

    This should be the campaign slogan for the opposition!

    B.B.W.

  4. Good thinking, B.B.W.! It`d make an excellent slogan.Bang on!!

  5. ““The recession began when many Ontarians lost their jobs. The recovery begins when the Liberals lose theirs.”

    Great Protest sign or bumper sticker. You could make a few bucks off this one if you rush to print. 🙂
