Wynne drowns us in debt and taxes

Since Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government has yet to balance a budget, Finance Minister Charles Sousa told taxpayers Thursday it’s done the next best thing — beat its deficit projections.

This is an old trick used by governments that can’t control their spending.

    Perhaps she could bring in a bit of money by selling the hydro transmission towers at Caledonia for scrap metal. Although the indians there have probably already sold the metal off, as they were seen cutting them up with torches.

      I won’t be shocked if pressure cooker bombs go off .
      Remember, we are the problem and Provoke those peaceful muslims to go jihad and kill us so watch for the CBC and STAR to blame gays for knowing they offended islam but held the parade to provoke them.

        pressure cooker bombs go off… the mind reels

    Yeah, I heard that announcement the other day. I horked up a couple of furballs to celebrate.

  • Government should not be able to go into a deficit spending mode.

    If the voters saw their taxes go up as spending increased, they might vote differently.

      Maybe Governments need to be told what to do by the electorate. Maybe they cannot be trusted to do the right thing, just because they say all the right things (at least in someone’s mind) to get elected. Maybe all Provinces and the
      federal Gov. need to exist under a civic actuated recall clause. It would make them think twice before doing what they claim they were “mandated” to do.
      Like, in order to raise taxes or send 2.5 billion somewhere out of the country for …..(?) it would have to be agreed to through some mechanism…
      I don’t believe the cost of doing so would be more than the cost of not, either.

    My beloved Alberta is being laid desolate by the Progressive hoards. I hear about the devastation piled upon Ontario by successive Governments. (I guess if Toronto will never win the Stanley cup, what does it matter anyhow?)
    BC always stood for Bring Cash.
    Quebec? that’s a whole other Country, which unfortunately is……….
    I live only 20 Minutes from Saskatchewan, where it seems the last Premier with any sense remains.
    I Was wondering if there were any other provinces, besides Saskatchewan, with a Premier/Government that was still operating anywhere near sensible.

      NFLD, maybe? I don’t know much about their government but I believe that it is one of the few remaining *have* provinces.

        The east coast provinces voted en-masse for the Liberals federally…but as far as being a “have Province” I think it was a short lived experience. They may be neutral or slightly better now. NFLD is “land locked”. If they want to transport anything by land it has to go through the fantastically wonderful “La Belle Province”.
        All they got out of their massive Labrador electrical generation was the bill….
        (I may be a little to sarcastic right now, I just had my coffee…lol)

      If you want to know why Toronto will never win the Stanley Cup you simply have to look at their salary cap versus the tax structure.
      No, it’s not an exact science, but if you look at pro sports, the pendulum is starting to swing towards teams that have lower tax rates.
      If you could sign a contract with any team for ten million a year would you go to a state or province that let you keep eight million or five million?
      The Dallas Stars are in first place in their conference.

    It all makes sense if the eventual desired outcome is hyperinflation and societal collapse.
