Liberals exiting off sinking ship

Kathleen Wynne – liar, thief, incompetent, dangerous ideologue

When populist and highly-respected veteran Ontario MPP Peter Kormos decided to retire in 2011 after 23 years in the legislature, I asked him why now. He answered that MPPs have no pension and that he needed to find a “real job” with pension benefits before he grew too old. He tragically died a few years later.

Undoubtedly, some of the MPPs who’ll pull the plug between now and the next June 2018 provincial election will do so for the same reasons as Kormos.

But when it comes to Liberals, don’t buy this excuse or the platitudinous of “spend(ing) more time with the family.” A stream of polls shows the Liberals are in big trouble. The latest one by Mainstream Research indicated that 49% of voters in the traditionally-rich Liberal territory of the city of Toronto support the Tories while 31% cheer on the Liberals and 19% back the NDP. Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne is even less popular.

Appealing as the premise may be it’s entirely possible we will not rid ourselves of the thieving Liberal party next election. Ontario is I believe near hopelessly compromised, a province of serfs, dependent on the whims of our kleptocrat class for crumbs.

    If they are jumping ship I don’t want them on mine. Thought or swim …

    Good op-ed by Mr. Marin, worth reading. The only problem is that this is another anti-Liberal piece from the Toronto Sun, the only real anti-Liberal medium out there. One might see a critical piece in the National Post, but that’s about it.

    Virtually all of the other media support Kathleen Wynne, given her far-left identity politics and her other left-wing policies. And don’t forget the well-financed public service unions and other powerful NGOS. The corrupt Wynne government has already paid them off, leading into the 2018 election, and one can be sure there will be an onslaught of anti-Tory ads next year.

    The fix is in.

    • Our political class is firmly ensconced, God forbid they should lose their place at the trough.

    • DMB

      They all want to be taxpayer subsidzed like the CBC so they too can receive the perks and benefits the CBC has!

      Seriously, David? This column — by our former ombudsman yet!!!! — is truly a case of ‘drinking your own bathwater’. Way too early to be breaking out the bubbly or the toxic stew. Nothing will change. But it’s kind of fun watching Phake Conservatives work themselves into a steamy lather. Makes you wonder if Mr. Marin ever had the kind of objectivity required for his former position, doesn’t it?

      • David Murrell

        I guess I look though the lens which sees society as politically corrupt. In particular, President Obama fashioned a powerful, corrupt machine — and this machine was used as a model to drive the corruption of Premier Wynne and Prime Minister Trudeau. Yes, Wynne is behind in the polls, which Mr. Marin quotes at length, but her corrupt machine will buy votes from various constituencies, including the profoundly corrupt media. This is my main point.

          “All the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players . . .”

          The personalities (choke, choke) that you refer to are not only players in the Shakespearean sense but malleable puppets manipulated by some truly evil creatures with very deep pockets. And we, silly, mortal fools are mesmerized by the transitory trinkets they dangle in front of us. Dig deeper.

    And they will be replaced by the NDP. Look at Venezuela, that is our future.

    • Not much difference under Brown either.

      • DMB

        Just look at John Tory former P.C. leader now Toronto mayor. Toronto needs to ask itself if they are better off under John Tory as mayor than under Rob Ford.

        • A Hamilton Guy

          Why did you mention John Tory? You just made me ill.

        Maybe a little less corruption (not hard to accomplish) and a little less debt (again, that’s not saying much). On social issues, there are absolutely no differences, and in regard to general beliefs and ideology, again, few if any differences: both parties believe in large, fat, unwieldy State/government and limited freedom and importance for the individual. Globalism, multiculturalism, climate change – all the progressives positions on these issues are held by both Parties, not just the Libs.

      Ours will be an islamic flavoured Venezuela.

        I just got home from a bike ride along the waterfront trail between Oshawa and Whitby, Ontario, and the number of people in Burkas and headscarves is shocking. t is getting a lot worse at a really rapid pace.

          Ssshhh… Your’re supposed to consume islam and conform, in imam trudeau’s ( Grand Mufti and Muktar of Ottawa & Toronto) new post nation state caliphate.

  • ontario john

    As we get closer to the election, expect the Liberal Party controlled media to give us lots of stories about homophobia and white racist bastards in rural Ontario.

    • shasta

      In other words there will be no change.

  • DMB

    Here is one that is has announced he WILL ruin for re election again during the next election.

  • andycanuck

    Tragically? But he didn’t need a pension after all then.

  • WalterBannon

    Humbug. Will believe it when the idiocracy of Wyntario votes this crook out of office
