Voter beware the Liberal minority

TORONTO – My fearless prediction if Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne wins another minority government with New Democrats and Andrea Horwath holding the balance of power?

This province will see a credit downgrade. The cost of borrowing will increase. As it is, it’s the third biggest spending item in the provincial government after health and education.

Wynne’s May 1 budget gave not a nod to restraint and Horwath’s platform released Thursday simply plays into that wanton spending.
