Ontario PCs vow to cut taxes, hydro rates, change name to Ontario New Democratic Liberal Party, in new ‘People’s Guarantee’ platform

Patrick Brown – hair lacks leadership quality.

This is the most heartening part of the manifesto… Brown said if he cannot implement his five main promises he will not seek a second term as premier.

    And he supports a carbon tax.

    • andycanuck

      And isn’t going to lower hydro bills by banning windmills and the like and launching an audit over corruption to get ratepayers’ money back.

    • moraywatson

      And he believes that islam is a race.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        That tells me all I need to know about him. I’m so glad not to be in Ontario, but to be in BC. Oh, wait …

        • Maggat

          Ya, it gets discouraging doesn’t it?

  • canminuteman

    I am not voting for this guy. And to the people who say I am handing the election to the Liberals if I don’t, I say so what? What difference, at this point does it make? They are no different than the Libs anyway. This is the way democracy dies. As soon as you let everyone vote people vote for the party that promises them the most free stuff and it will continue until we are like Venezuela. And besides, if the Liberals loose the election, and I am not convinced they will, they will loose to the NDP.

    This is exactly like Venezuela, the party that bankrupted the country was voted in, and the opposition doesn’t complain that the are bankrupted the country, they complain that they are not giving the people enough free stuff.

    This won’t end until we are bankrupt and starving, and when we are people will be complaining that they need more help from the government because they are staving in the streets.

    I have been thrifty all my life to save for my old age, and it will all evaporate before I get a chance to enjoy it, and I will be too old to do anything about it. It would be better if it all collapsed now when I am still young enough (sort of) to pick up my rifle and head to the hills.

    • Bla Bla

      Bravo, I feel the same way.

      BTW, how can you tell brown is lying? His lips are moving.

      As soon as he gets power, he’ll become mini-wynne and continue the madness that has brought Ontario to its knees. If Ontariowe is going to crash and burn, it might as well be under wynee-bags watch. Besides, I haven’t forgotten that brown-stain has told us conservatives to pound sand.

    • Bla Bla

      As per the ‘free stuff’ here it is –

      The plan would also introduce the Ontario Child Care Refund, a tax credit based on household income. Under the plan, a mother who earns $35,000 a year and has a child under six would be eligible for a refund of $6,750 in child care costs.

      Of course it’s just allotted to those who pay minimal taxes in the first place instead of being available to everyone. We must punish those who have made their lives better by dragging them back down into the ditches where they belong – says the socialists pigs.

      • canminuteman

        It’s nothing more than income redistribution. My wife stayed home to raise our kids, reducing our family income as a result. And I get to pay extra taxes so some woman can be employed in some fake government make work job and subcontract the raising of her kids to someone else. It really is a shitty system.

        • Bla Bla

          Correct once again!

        • Alain

          We had exactly the same situation while raising four children with the first one born in the late 70s. Single income families with children were blatantly discriminated against by the tax system. I have no regrets however, because sacrifices we had to make were well worth it.

        • LauraS

          Same here. I resent paying taxes that go to pay childcare for people who put their kids’ needs below their “need” for a new car, holidays abroad, etc.

          Like Alain (below), I also feel our sacrifice was worth it, and my kids are faring much better than their daycare peers.

        • Watchman

          I’d like to say that IMHO tax rebates are the better alternative to straight out child support payments. There needs to be more successful two parent families having children and far less unemployed single mothers doing so. The current government system provides little disincentive for an unwed single woman to have lots of children since the more children she has the more money the government will give her.

          Conversely, a high income, successful married couple who both work is disadvantaged if they have children, and this couple is exactly the type of family we need to be having more children as these children will be assets to the nation, not just their family. I think the best way to provide incentives is tax rebates: an unemployed single woman with no taxable income will get get no tax rebate as she pays no tax, and she will get no more money on every extra child as she still pays no tax.

          A successful married couple on the other hand loses if the wife stops working to have a child, but a tax rebate would help ameliorate this. A second and successive child should give further tax rebates to this couple. The government doesn’t give them other taxpayers money with these tax rebates, the family just get to keep their money which the government otherwise would take (and then likely hand it to single mothers for them having babies).

          We need to stop the dysgenics that the Government is so keen on encouraging and stop single mothers having the most babies and being paid to do so.

    • NO difference whatsoever.

      • DMB

        It will be like rearranging the deck chairs of the Titanic.

  • Millie_Woods

    I wouldn’t vote for him either, not only does he talk like a weasel but he looks like one too. I feel sorry for normal people in Ontario. They really are phucked.

    • Ontario is toast.

      • Bla Bla

        toast is tasty – so I would put my money on absolutely carbonized.

      • Clausewitz

        I really miss Mike Harris.

        • canminuteman

          He was our once in a life time decent government.

    • Waffle

      A squeaky weasel!

  • pettifog

    Assuming he does get elected, when he doesn’t keep his promises, how much do you want to bet he does run again?

  • ontario john

    Don’t worry downtown Toronto, polls show a tightening race, as public sector unions, muslim immigrants, and various other groups that rely on kick backs from the Liberals, are rallying to save the gravy train.

  • CodexCoder

    And yet, like most politicians, there is no detailed plan as to how these objectives will be realistically reached (without incurring further debt). Marry in haste, repent in leisure.

    And yes, I see Patrick Brown as Wynne Lite.

    • LauraS

      I agree. Watched the news reports about all the “goodies” in the Patrick Brown budget. All I could think was, “Where on earth is all this money coming from?” (Answer: Taxpayers.)

      • Waffle

        They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. His father was a Dipper.

        • LauraS

          That explains a lot, Waffle!

          It is disgusting and disheartening that so many Ontario voters are casting ballots based on what the government can “give” them instead of getting big government out of everyone’s lives so we can take care of ourselves.

  • simus1

    Casting a ballot for a different party also controlled top down by
    a bunch of vote whoring weasels accomplishes what, exactly?

  • ECM

    Brown said if he cannot implement his five main promises he will not seek a second term as premier.

    If I had a debt-riddled, collapsing nation-state for every time I’ve seen that promise unfulfilled…

    • FivePointSpurgeonist

      Why not? Mugabe just this week resigned from seeking his second term!

  • ontario john

    EVERYTHING IS FREE IN ONTARIO!!(unless your a tax payer)

  • Watchman

    “This is the most heartening part of the manifesto…”
    You do realise this is a ‘promise’ by a politician, and has the value of any promise by any politician yet to be elected?

  • Felix_Culpa

    QUOTE: “Brown said if he cannot implement his five main promises he will not seek a second term as premier.”

    Really? Wow. Maybe I’ll vote for him, then. Seems like the best way to get rid of him.
