Our illustrious leaders

Well I received this email today and it made me think about our leaders?

  Dalton McGuinty – Liberal
Please Distribute To All Ontarians…
Now that we’ve seen what can happen in B.C. (with the recent resignation of former Premier Campbell), it’s time to address Ontario ‘s situation. Here’s a historical reminder of what our Government has done for us in recent years.
Have a read and let’s do some ‘cogitating’ . . . .

Just so you don’t forget…

Here is what our Premier has done for Ontario in the past seven years.
Remember…he had a no tax increase election message/campaign.
Errors & Omissions Excepted
1. He has increased all the licensing fees from your car to your boat including fishing and hunting.

2. He introduced the health care premium (not called a tax) and some couples pay as much as $1,500.00 a year.

3. He has put an ECO tax on many containers such as paint cans and window washer fluid and most people still don’t realize it until they see the bill – he kept that one real quiet.

4. He put a disposal tax on all electronics.

5. He put the disposal tax back on tires.

6. And now he has passed the HST tax – the largest tax on the province ever and the only other tax in Ontario that ever came close to this in the past was the health care premium. He passed this bill even though 76% of the people in Ontario were against it. This HST will provide the Province with an additional THREE BILLION dollars a year.

7. Soon, July 15th, we will all have our S.M.A.R.T. Meters on which we will have to pay perpetual rent and will end up doing our laundry in the middle of the night. We are also going to pay big time for air conditioning from now on because when we need it the most it will be in the prime time of usage.

8. Let us not forget the E-health scandal with 1.2 billion dollars wasted and paid out to friends and relatives.
What was Mr. McGuinty’ s answer to this? Well, if the people of Ontario don’t like it, they can show it in the next election. Nice attitude.But let’s remember as that day approaches.
This after he fired the CEO and then gave her a severance package of $300,000 – not bad for only being on the job for seven months.

9. And what about the SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS windmill power plant contract that he awarded to KOREA ? One would think there was some place in Canada or North America that could have built these.

10. He also closed the emergency rooms in Port Colburne and Fort Erie because there is not enough money. There have been two deaths since then because by the time they got to St. Catharine’s it was too late. But he then awards a hospital in Toronto three million dollars. Of course, that was in the riding where there just happens to be a by-election to replace George Smitherman!

11. He has taken the richest most prosperous province in Canada down to one of the ‘Have-Nots’.And, over the past six & one half years, has increased the budget deficit from $5.6 Billion dollars to TWENTY SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS and he still has  a half year to go.

12. And don’t forget his nice little salary increase of $40,000.00 a year – millions of people in the province don’t earn even half of that.

13. Have we forgotten all the MPP’S who also got a 14% increase? And now that they’ve had their increases he comes out with a new budget to freeze all provincial employees wages for two years. A bit late don’t you think?

14. He increased the hydro tax by 10% in April of 2010.

15. He has increased the tax on liquor and wine by 10% in May of 2010.

16. He continues to permanently ‘Blight’ landscapes across the province with unsightly wind turbines.

17. But, Mr. McGuinty will retire with his nice comfortable pension and all his benefits paid.
18. No, or minimal, indexing for WSIB recipients.

I hope this gets passed around the province of Ontario and everybody remembers the way we got screwed by Mr. McGuinty and the Liberal party.
Remember – not one Liberal MPP had enough guts to vote against any of the above.
Wake up Ontario …!
And all pensioners got no raise at all over the past 18 months!

Whew that was a mouthful, wasn’t it?  Now I don’t claim to be much of a political expert, they are all crooks if you ask me.  I just don’t understand some things.  I am old enough to remember when Lotario first came into being.  It was a chance to win a bit of money, and we were told that all the money earned as profits would go to our Roads, Hospitals and schools.  Well we don’t have gold lined roads, our Hospitals are being closed and cut back so we have to wait for care for long periods of time and our schools, well let’s just not go there.  

What bothers me is where have all the millions and millions of dollars gone.  Whose pockets are full, is it yours, ’cause mine is still empty and getting emptier.  We always seem to have money from Our Taxes to help others in distress.  We have many generous people in this country who have the means to give money to disaster funds, we could all spare a dollar for this also, that should be our way of helping.  We cannot afford to dole out money like we are rich.  Our leaders all make “good” salaries and their pensions, well let’s just not talk about that.  I have had many jobs in my lifetime and none of them gave me a large payout or a lifetime pension.  Do those who serve in the Armed Forces, get the same pension as those members of parliament after only one term of service?????   

Well I guess I have made a point, not sure how much good it will do, but well that is just how I really  feel.
