Ontario Voter Power Spring Uprising.








  Prorogation: An all party condoned procedure and legacy used by this liberal government for purely political reason to high-jack democracy through pompous unwritten principles, non binding conventions and traditions according to the liberal parties anointed lieutenant governor and Queens representative  as opposed to the peoples or voters representative.

Wynne’s promise to her liberal party to recall the legislature in itself does not resolve or solve her political parties or that of others future potential abuse of arrogantly using prorogation for political purposes.

Unless the throne speech introduces measures that effectively would prohibit and make it impossible for governing political parties from introducing prorogation, unless Canada is in a declared state of war, this liberal government should be immediately defeated on a no confidence vote by the opposition parties forthwith.

  Education:  A liberal party legacy that has allowed public education to be controlled, managed and bullied around by teachers through their union leaders and associations at the direct expense of students and taxpayers.

As a profession  teachers supposedly entered this work environment NOT for the money as it has become for wages, benefits, sick days, time off and pensions but rather to teach. Labour through it unions must be controlled by governments, the people, the same way corporations not dictated to by unelected members of the legislature.

Taxpayers, students and parents all have had enough of collateral damage directly caused to the public education system by the labour movements. The facts are clear 40,000 children do not graduate annually and a great number of those who do cannot realistically read, write or due math, let alone spell or carry on a conversation. 

Teachers and their unauthorized indoctrination of children and students, unlike those making cars, defending the innocent and guilty, doctors and the likes, as a profession are unaccountable for the consequences of their actions to the children, students, parents, taxpayers or society.      

The public wants a word with these teachers and that is if you do not wish to teach then get out of the profession now and find another career through a union and leave the teaching to teachers who are dedicated to same and not monetary gains at the expense of students and others. 

What about cutting the fat out of education @ http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/malkin-dare/ontario-education-budget_b_2629624.html


  Energy: Another economic disaster directly caused by this liberal government. The cancellation of gas plants demands a RCMP investigation and a subsequent judicial inquiry that has an outcome resulting in jail time and restitution by MPP’s, bureaucrats, technocrats and political parties found responsible and thus liable for wasteful spending, fiscal mismanagement of programs and services that for me legally was a breach of trust on or within government by a lack of fiduciary duties or oversight and mismanagement of public funds.     

There has been no track of transparency by Wynne previously and as such simply asking the auditor general to check the books is in my humble opinion a political attempt at a further cover-up by this liberal party.

  Economics: The liberal party of Ontario for the past ten years has clearly demonstrated no transparent political decency and honesty relating to Social justice.

As such for this liberal government is the effective implementation of the above three measures.

  Transit and Transportation:  Wynne has been a Toronto member of the legislature for a decade and has never concerned herself or her party or led the way on transit issues for either the city or the GTHA.

A 1% transit tax on banks, unions and all corporate taxpayers as opposed to a new direct 1% sales tax on individuals or parking fee increases, road tolls or additional gas taxes is the one measure immediately required for transit subway funding. 

Presently and for far too long individual income tax payers contribute $24.2 Billion annually in taxes while banks, corporations contribute a mere $9.4 Billion in taxes.

Any new revenues for transit funding must come from a 1% transit tax on banks, unions and all corporation doing business in Ontario and NOT a sales tax on individual taxpayers.

  1. Why should a business in Parry Sound pay an additional 1% tax to fund transit in Toronto. Rural Ontario people already fund transit through their gas taxes. Transit funding must come from the people who use it.

  2. Thanks for your thought and comments Peggy and let's not be too parochial here!

    All drivers in Ontario, including those throughout Toronto and the GTHA pay a gas tax when they fill up at the pumps.
    The one exception is the first nations people, I believe. So let's not be too Parochial.

    I want all business, banks, unions and corporations be they in Tim buck two or elsewhere in Ontario and Canada to pay a transit tax as opposed to a 1% sales tax.

    A portion of the tax fund, based on ridership, of course would also be used to help fund your present transit system in Parry Sound.

    Take care and keep smiling!

  3. Margaret Thatcher took on the unions. Kathleen Wynne is part of the unions. Teachers' and civil servant unions in Ontario hold the public hostage, and that is not going to change with Wynne. The Hamilton incident shows just how egregious the unions are. As long as the liberals are in power, nothing will change. And to be honest, not sure Hudak would make a difference.

  4. Thanks Elke for your thoughts and comment.

    Personnaly I strongly believe that political parties, all of them provincially and federally, in reality with there less than a percentage point of all registered voters DO NOT honestly represent the voters per say and rather their own individual political parties ideologies and policies that they seek our votes under at election time as opposed to to those of the voters.

    Do Political Parties Represent Honesty and Transparency or are an Asset or a Ruse to Democracy and Elections?
