…The Liberals’ big red political machine is formidable after 15 years in power.
It has allies in the corporate sector ranging from the auto insurance industry to so-called “green energy” companies that rely on favourable provincial legislation and/or subsidies to boost their profits.
Of Ontario’s six million workers, 1.1 million — 18% — are in the public sector, paid directly or indirectly by Queen’s Park.
Add in the the civil servants employed at the federal level and that total is nearly 2 million, that’s a huge head start for Wynne, a base of motivated rent-seekers who will turn out at the polls. This is what makes Ontario a kleptocracy, we are governed by a ruling class of predators who anoint the likes of Wynne their puppet to remain assured of direct access to your wallet.
