Liberal, union expense deal stinks

If Ontario’s Liberal government secretly gave some teacher unions millions of taxpayer dollars so these unions could use that money at election time to buy advertising attacking the Liberals’ main political opponents, everyone would know it was wrong.

The Ontario Liberals and the teacher unions involved insist that isn’t what they’ve been doing.

That there is no “quid pro quo” between what they claim are two unrelated events.


 

Wynne is a congenital liar, the Liberal Party-Public Service Union alliance is a corruption of democracy that has rendered Ontario a kleptocracy.

    We need to bring back hangings for these sorts of crimes.

    • Clink9

      And sell tickets to help pay down the debt.

      • WalterBannon

        I would happily be a revenue tool for that event…

  • hirsutetoboot

    I’m not sure that any scandal/lie/tax will change the mind of the average Ontario voter. Sad but true

    • Ed Ellison

      It is baffling to be sure.
      Only a major depression, and/or the dismantling of the leftist media and school curriculum will change the status quo in the short term.
      Longer term, the Muslims when they gain ascendancy will deal with the leftists in their own way.

    • David Murrell

      Because the national media cartel refuse to hold her into account. They simply look the other way.

      Blaze, I can’t access the link.

    • WalterBannon

      That’s because most Ontario voters do not have a mind.

  • Maurixio Garciasanchez

    She is a big liar Yes she doesn’t know anything about the economy Yes but the mayority of people elected her Y e s .

    • Waffle

      Maurixio, I really wish you’d educate yourself. Yes, she got a majority but the “majority of people” did not elect her. First of all, less than half the eligible voters went to the polls. Secondly, of those who did, less than half of those actually voted Liberal. So please disabuse yourself of your illusions and learn a little basic math while you’re at it.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        Tim Hudak couldn’t make it , during his campaign he mentioned too many racist comments , people wanted a change but his idiology didn’t help .

        • Richard_Romano

          You’re obviously brainwashed. You can’t think for yourself. You’re just repeating liberal bromides. I actually feel sorry for you.

    • David Murrell

      …and it’s “majority”, not “mayority”, doofus.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        I was listening the radio at work and many callers were mencioning race and color of people in a negative way , well that chased the voters away from him .

        • Exile1981

          Those are callers not Tim Hudak, and how many times have we seen the idiots with racists signs at tea party events all turning out to be members of the DNC or actual paid staff of some far left group?

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            OK they were fake callers or paid by the corrupt parties , my point of view was his answers or opinions that he had .

      • Waffle

        LOL!! I’m of two minds as to whether he should first learn arithmetic or English pronunciation.

    • Clink9

      I’m reporting your comment to Aunt Kathleen. She will probably kick you off her Christmas card list.

  • People will vote for her tomorrow.

    Thank Liberal voters for their idiocy next time you encounter them.

  • Billy Bob Thornton

    My problem with Ontario’s government is not so much the debt but the lack of choice when Ontarians clearly could have voted for the None of the Above Party, the Socialist party, the Freedom party, the New Reform party or others. The truth is Hudak’s 1 million jobs plan was pie in the sky and the Liberals are just trying to get as many jobs in government as possible. That mainly has to do with the loss of jobs during the financial crisis and Ontario being a province that is forced to spend. I say this often to people whether outside the mainstream or inside the mainstream and that is Ontario is bankrupt and manufacturing was what Ontario was about. No matter how much you lower Ontario’s business tax rates that cannot provide as many jobs as manufacturing would have. In fact tariffs are really the only way and government designating certain industries to be under such a model to be manufacturing jobs. The same goes with local businesses being under special designation. The fact is Ontario gave away that and even after 1988 Canada was to be losing 1000 jobs a month and the chickens have come home to roost. People simply believed the economists under their chosen party. I have been saying this since 2009. I feel the only way to get Ontario good again is to nationalize the railways, power, utilities and to have its own tariff model. I also think Ontario needs to do what John Turmel suggests which is having local currencies and bond currencies that are debt free to have wealth pay down Ontario’s massive debt and deficit.

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      The fact is debt means nothing to the big 3 parties. They campaign about it but they all don’t care about the debt or future generations. The same organizations telling us to pay our debts couldn’t even see the financial crisis back in 2006 with the warnings there. The S&P and Moody’s organizations clearly are not reliable.

    • Maurixio Garciasanchez

      The free trade took many jobs away , that’s to Brian Mulruney for that and his GST .

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        Thanks to Brian Mulruney that’s what I meant.

      • Billy Bob Thornton

        Liberals, Conservatives and NDP all believe in free trade now. We do not have in Canada anti-globalist parties that want free trade renegotiated and us rebuilding capitalism. I am a state capitalist much like Putin’s Russia and China’s president, but we should never trust all our decision-making in soulless politicians that care more about power, prestige and having their money on dollar bills. We need to worry about Canada’s future!

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          The anti-globalist parties are fringe and Canadians are too stupid to want change and lack the education to do their own research.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            We are living in the 21st century and whenever any party or leader starts promoting hate and division , those things chase people away .

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Well definitely when things are so politically charged as they are now people will not pay attention to the minor parties. That I can agree with!

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            We’ll see the new PM I can’t have an opinion on , he is not on his sit yet .

        • Billy Bob Thornton

          I meant their faces on dollar bills*

        • Maurixio Garciasanchez

          I agree with free trade as long as is going be many benefits for the country and it’s population.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Canada should have in my mind direct democracy, recall and referendum on many issues and we need proportional representation to get the debates going to bring about real change and so new parties can enter the House of Commons. Canadians do not know traditionalist economics because modern economics is interest rates near zero and we are in uncharted territory. Canadians believe everything the political class tells them and they are pathological liars.

          • Maurixio Garciasanchez

            You are right we need new parties with smart open minded leaders .

          • Clink9

            Are you guys just about done?

          • andycanuck

            Or this movie instead, Clink9:
            http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0245574/

          • Clink9

            Heh, looks like that movie brought in more money than the new Dan Rather one.

    Wynne is now demanding that the unions provide receipts for the tax dollars that she may not have given them and they may not have received.

    ” The union said it has donated to all three parties and while it participated in third-party ads during last year’s Ontario election, they weren’t intended to be partisan.”

    http://www.canada.com/news/ontario+liberals+teachers+unions+receive+million+payment+want/11474615/story.html

    Sounds believable, and would Justin hug someone who helped him win if she was corrupt ???

    • Maurixio Garciasanchez

      Bad news now for the Libs.

    • andycanuck

      It’s okay. The teachers found their receipts…

      Wynne is now demanding that the unions MAKE UP receipts for the tax dollars that she may not have given them and they may not have received.

    And now an unrelated musical interlude that has nothing to do with the Liberal family

    • Reader

      Here is another unrelated song, though I will admit from the name of the performers I thought it was sung by the Premier, the Prime Minister Designate and their educational consultant, but I should have read this was from 1927

    The Greeks kept on voting for free stuff right up to the collapse. Then they voted foe more free stuff. I don’t expect Ontario to be any different.

    • unalien
