Roy Green: Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is wrongly in attack mode

The premier now speaks of Ontario’s unemployment being at a 17-year low and the province’s real GDP growing faster than in the rest of Canada. She doesn’t speak of onerous taxation and regulation directed at small business owners, who are often close to the margins of survival after dealing with Queens Park’s interference.

    Yes the wicked witch of the north has declared war against small business. The media is reporting that her government will shame in public any small business that tries to penalize employees because of her new minimum wage. And she will be sending civil servants to inspect businesses around the province. Well, we certainly have enough civil servants in the province to do that. No word on whether these inspectors will wear brown shirts and smash windows.

    • Let’s not forget that the people of Ontario ALSO declared war on small businesses.

      They voted for all of this to happen, after all.

    Ontario’s Labour Minister Kevin Flynn stated today that if small businesses that can’t afford to pay their employee’s the new minimum wage that they should just raise their prices. So now the Liberals feel that they know better how to run businesses than the business owners themselves. What next will they legislate prices for the businesses. Raising prices is not always an option for certain businesses considering some are very price competitive and with labour as being the most expensive fixed cost some have no choice but to cut labour expenses through a reduction in benefits, hours. Flynn also announced that he plans to hire 175 more employment standard officers to inspect businesses to ensure they are in compliance with labour legislation. That’s right folks once again the government will just increase the size of the public sector to pay for their high taxation this time to small businesses.

    Kathleen Wynne, you are one ugly man. And my personal pronouns for you are ‘cunt’, ‘bitch’ and ‘asshole’.

    And to think the Progressives of the world are harping on about Trump being insane when this delusional broad has experienced a complete and total break with reality.

      Yeah when Trump remain a very successful self-made businessman, Wynne has never lived off the public teat in her life.
