Premier Kathleen Wynne said through her finance minister Charles Sousa Thursday Ontario can tax and spend itself rich.
That’s her plan — increase taxes, increase spending and the deficit will fix itself.
It’s a nonsensical platform she’ll run on in the looming election, a blatant appeal to NDP voters rather than Conservative ones.
Thus it was odd NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, who has been propping up Wynne’s minority government for more than a year, gutlessly refused to take questions from the media in the budget lockup. She didn’t even show up, which is unprecedented.
As for Wynne, her financial plan is absurd.
