Today is writ day
On October 6th, Ontarians will get to decide who they want to govern Ontario over the next four years.
The fact is, however, many Ontario voters are not even aware that an election is in the air (Ottawans barely aware of election). Even though a number of candidates have been campaigning for months, many people are just not tuned in. At least they don’t realize that they are.
Every time I fill up with gas, I am reminded that the Dalton McGuinty government is responsible for around ten cents of every litre. Others around me say the same thing.
When I go to Future Shop and buy a new computer, t.v. or speakers, I pay an additional disposal fee for something that I hope will last me a very long time. This taxable fee also reminds me of why I should not vote for the Dalton McGuinty government again. Others around me say the same thing.
I spend a lot of time with seniors and they complain about the long wait time to see doctors and specialists. Didn’t Dalton vouch to shorten wait times as justification for bringing the health tax? Others around me think the same thing.
I think people in Ontario know what they are not going to vote for in the next election; they just don’t know when they will get a chance to vote. But after today, and for the next 29 days, Ontario voters will learn that they have a chance to bring much needed change to Ontario by voting in a new government.
