Wow, didn’t expect that. I guess he can’t handle the $700 million Hydro scandal, or the teacher’s union pressure, or the E-Health scandal, or his Green Energy scandal. Won’t miss ya, Dalton McGuinty. Who will run the LIEbral ship?
And for that reason, I will not be supporting you. As the closest government MPP to Caledonia, and representing a riding that is also in sight of the illegal native occupations, have you done ANYTHING for the rule of law in Ontario? No, you have done nothing. Did you help Caledonians who were traumatized, arrested without lawful reasons by the Ontario Provincial Police, intimidated by native terrorists for years, other than to hand them a cheque right before the writ was dropped? No.
Did you vote to increase my taxes? Yes. Many times. Did my health care tax help out when I had to wait with my girlfriend in the Brantford General Hospital for nearly 12 hours, before she was admitted? That same day, another gentleman had to wait til the next morning after already waiting 12 hours. Disgraceful.
How many jobs have LEFT Brantford and Brant since you’ve been in office? Where are all the factories that once flourished in this city? Where are all these green jobs, how come none of them came to Brantford? Why am I paying an extra 10 – 15 cents a litre for gas? An extra tax on my electricity bill? Where have you been for us on that one?
Sorry, Dave, I will not be supporting another four years of meandering, wasteful, government spending. I will not be supporting a green energy initiative that is keeping major employers from coming here, for fear their hydro bills are going to go through the roof. I will not be supporting McGuinty’s continued need to balloon our deficit so my kids will have to pay it for me.
It’s more than politics for me, Dave Levac. And that means you do not get this vote. Michael St Amant and Tim Hudak’s Conservatives can clean the government up, and I can trust them to keep taxes low, and actually enforce the rule of law.
McGuinty has a plank in his platform that says if you hire a newly landed immigrant, you get a $10,000 check from the province. Hire Someone born and raised in Canada? Get a “Thanks for coming out.” It’s complete pandering to immigrants. Not only is that social engineering, is of the lowest kind. It’s left-wing racism.
“It reminded me a little bit of the potential blow back that we could see by positioning it from the opposition as an affirmative action program,” said Liberal insider Andrew Steele.”
c/o Blazing Cat Fur: McGuinty’s Labour Day Pledge: I’m gonna use your money to buy your job and give it to some immigrant stupid enough to vote for me.
Dalton McGunity is NOT interested in helping out Ontarians, unless you are in the Liberal fold. Time to lose YOUR job, Dalton.
The Dalton McChicken government is so low in the polls, that apparently everyone is Mike Harris. I think it would be worse to be called the next Dalton McGuinty.
It’s good to see Dalton McGuinty is ruining healthcare yet again in Ontario. I’m paying an extra $300 a year for this? Now Dalton McGuinty is trying to blame his health care debacle on your local pharmacist. It’s their fault that health care can’t maintain a budget. It’s the pharmacies fault that you are waiting in line for a hip replacement today. What?
In fact, the only place where you dont have to wait in line nowadays is in your pharmacy. Convenient, easy access, and hours that suit your needs, the community pharmacy has been the one bright spot in our health care scenario. But Dalton is about to change that.
McGuinty and his lap dog, Deb Matthews, a London area MPP to boot, have decided to unilaterally cut the price they want to pay for drugs, and completely change the funding model on how pharmacists deliver their services to you. What does that mean to you?
Well, the government will tell you that they are going to save you money on drugs. But wait…. anyone on the Ontario Provincial Drug Plan already only pays a slight $2 co payment, so they aren’t saving. Those on an employer benefit plan aren’t going to save. And those who pay out of pocket are already paying the lowest price, so they arne’t going to save. Who is saving?
Dalton’s budget saves, thats what. In oder to keep his promises to balance the books, he needs $1 billion. So he’s hoping pharmacies can just do without a billion a year. Here’s what Dalton and Deb’s $1 billion means to you:
- At least 400 pharmacies in rural areas will close. This funding is used by the pharmacists to deliver services to you. So know, you’ll have to drive and extra 10 to 45 minutes to get to your essential drugs.
- Extra services, like pharmacies in walk in clinics, etc. will be gone, since many pharmacies piggyback the cost of operating smaller pharmacies on the revenue they generate from the main pharmacies. Expect those to close.
- Hours will be drastically reduced. That script you receive from your doctor after 6? hope you dont need it til tomorrow.
- Lineups galore. With less pharmacies, more people will crowd into the ones that are left in their community, clogging service, and adding wait times to pick up your prescription. Bring a novel!
Dalton and Deb want to make sure the standard of pharmacy delivery is that of the rest of the healthcare system. Which frankly, sucks.
Good job, Dalton. Excellent job Deb. You are truly showing us what you really think of health care in this province.
I noticed this week a big jump in the comments on my post from before, about how Dr. Eric Hoskins would snub Norfolk if elected MP. Sure enough, he ran to Dalton Mc Chicken, for a seat in the riding of St. Paul’s.
Now, he jumped ship from the fed Libs to the provincial Libs. He jumped out of Norfolk (whom he obvious had no care about or he’d actually LIVE here) to Toronto, where he hopes his Dr. designation will get him a seat in the provincial legislature.
Here’s the thing, Eric. You want to enter public service. you cannot snub people in that service. From what I am reading, you are nothing more than a carpetbagger! An overqualified, looking down on others, Carpetbagger. Dalton has given you a “safe” seat to run in.
It’s a shame too. I remember him strolling through Norfolk, basically telling us that he deserves the seat and we were fools for not handing it to him. The same thing is happening in St. Pauls. I mean, check out his website! You need a strong experienced voice in Queen’s Park. not someone who’s actually lived in Toronto, like ex-Sun reporter Sue Levy or Lawyer Julian Heller.
At any rate, best of luck to those in St.Paul’s, and vote wisely. Remember, the promises made to you were made to us, not a few months before.
It was reported this morning that up to 400 people from Nanticoke’s Lake Erie Steel received their layoff notices, as parent company US Steel continues to weather the economic downturn. The company said last week that it will be temporarily idling most of its operations at its Hamilton and Lake Erie Works facilities and laying off 15 hundred workers.
Representatives of US Steel are assuring they will honour their pension obligations amidst layoffs at two area plants. The comment came after a lengthy meeting with Hamilton’s mayor earlier this week. The company also assured the mayor they were very much invested in the area and will return when the market picks back up.
Layoffs Hit Lake Erie Steel
Up to 100 people worked their last shift for the forseeable future this week. An employee with US Steel at Lake Erie says about 100 employees will be off work as of Monday. The company is looking at cutting back to 12 shifts per week from 21, and possibly closing one of its plants. It would be the first layoffs at the plant in 29 years of operation.
So when will McGuinty start making sure jobs aren’t shrinking in Ontario? I don’t see any plans for Auto and steel workers; the heart and soul of the manufacturing in this country.
