Doug Ford & OPC clinches majority government...

Recommended Posts

I would love to be able to say but since there isn't actually any platform provided yet.......

I suspect on some level even the PC party doesn't know what they are going to do next - they just went through a rapid leadership change, immediately went into an election cycle, and really haven't had time to figure all of it out. The next few months will be very interesting indeed.

Ontario just elected a person without a costed platform, that ran on empty platitudes. So who knows. I doubt if, even, Doug Ford can tell you. Atleaset, we get 1 dollar beer. 

Goes to show you just how poorly Wynne and her government performed. Not only did they lose to a guy without a costed platform, they lost official party status as well lmao.

Not to express any sort of partisan opinion but this essay (and comments underneath) were interesting food for thought.

Sure, ideally not having a costed platform can make you more flexible and may lead to better solutions. However, this is only applicable if Doug Ford had made 0 promises. As of right now, the Ontario government will eliminate multiple sources of income via cutting taxes (i.e. scrapping carbon taxes). The conservatives, also, promised to balance the budget by the end of their first year. Furthermore, their plan wants to increase spending by 10 billion.

Now if Doug Ford wants to keep these promises, he is going to have to cut a lot from somewhere. We have no idea were the cuts are going to come from without a costed platform. Knowing the numbers might have impacted how people voted.

 

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. The PCs won. Hopefully, they know what they are doing.

Unbelievable that Ontario voted for someone who literally did not have a financial platform.. or much of a platform at all. We decided our own fate, regardless of how stupid it is.

 

Dollar beers, I guess...

 

Pathetic.

I wouldn't expect more funding for the ministry of health in the next 4 years? 

LHINs should disappear. Cuts at the admin level to the MOH should absolutely be made. Both of these are extreme positives. 

Do expect an increase to physician services as well as beds which is largely what matter for healthcare. 

The big question is whether they take a pro-NP/PA stance or not.

Because the alternative (NDP) was so abysmal that a loottt of people preferred Ford's trashcan over it. 

You don't become an economic engine by taxing job creators and bowing down to unions.
