Critics of Ontario premier erroneously assume she’s trying to do the right thing

Not only is Kathleen Wynne unpopular in the province she governs but she has the lowest approval ratings of any premier in Canada. In a poll late last month, while 70 percent of Ontarians disapprove of her performance, almost half of all Canadians (48 percent) disapprove of her job performance.

Back in March, an Angus Reid poll gave her a record low; only 12 percent of Ontarians polled approved of Wynne’s performance. As the late Finance Minister Jim Flaherty might have put it, she reached Elvis territory; the percentage of people who like the job she is doing is about the same as those who think the singer is still alive.
