Ontarians implicate Wynne in gas-plant scandal: poll

But they’ll still vote for it.

The survey was not all doom and gloom for Premier Wynne, however. Her Liberals remained in a statistical tie with the Tories when it comes to Ontarians’ voting intentions. Just over one-third, or 34 per cent, said they were leaning toward or would definitely vote for the Conservatives if an election were held today, while 31 per cent supported the Liberals. The NDP placed third with 26 per cent.

    I was working with a guy recently who worked on one of the gas plants (we electricians stick together). Anyway, he was saying that they were told to build as much as they could as fast as they could, and it didn’t matter if it ever worked because it was going to be torn down before it was finished anyway, and the contractors were going to get paid based on how much they built. It seems it was a bit of an open secret what was going to happen well before it happened.

    The only people who can stop Wynne is the bond rating agencies by stop loaning her money which she will only use to get us even more in debt. But why loan money to someone they are almost certain who can’t or won’t pay it off? I believe in order to acquire as much assets from the government as possible during a declared insolvency or bankruptcy. For example Wynne is turning all HOV lanes into TOL which in my opinion is the first step to the privatization of our highways at discounted rates. Also we have the majority stack of Hydro One being privatized to a private sector monopoly with little to no competition. Eventually our Hospitals, Schools, non essentially policing (security), firefighters and much of everything else will be handled by the private sector leaving taxpayers paying taxes not for services but to pay of the debt left by Liberals while paying enormous amount of user fees to pay for our services.

      Bond rating agencies are homophobic

      When the election of Wynne’s downfall comes around the opposition should stand down and refuse to run for election.

    No mystery in the poll results — they indicate the strength of the unions. We’re screwed.

        My doctor has advised me not to read that rag.

    Sure will. Just like all those parents protesting the new sex education will still vote for it. Every time.
