More “to-be-broken” promises from Liberals
“Ontario’s Green Energy Act will create 50,000 new jobs” says the Ontario Liberal government. And if you believe that, I know some land in Florida you can buy very cheaply.
I don’t know why they stopped at promising only 50,000. They should have said 75,000 or 100,000. These predictions and promises are worth as much as Liberal promises not to raise taxes. You know a carbon tax or ECO type tax is coming if they win again in October.
Listen, the only tactic the Liberal government has against Tim Hudak and the PC party is to try to scare Ontario voters by saying that the PC’s will cut funding to education and healthcare. That Ontario residents will be attending bad schools and have longer waits for operations and long term care if Hudak wins. But the PC’s have promised not to do this. In fact, they have gone out of their way to say that they will keep increasing investments in these two areas. According to Tim Hudak, healthcare and education will be improved under PC governance. Do you believe that?
There are people who will vote for the Liberals knowing that Dalton McGuinty will not follow through on his commitments but they just like him. I am cool with that. Who I want to address this post to are the voters who say they don’t believe Hudak’s pledge but live everyday with McGuinty’s broken promises. I hear many say that both leaders are not truthful and neither will keep their promises. If that’s the case, why re-elect a Liberal government? It’s not working for the economy as proven by our notional standing in economic performance. Our taxes and hydro rates keep going up with no improvement of any tangible measure to show for it. And this is the current record of the Liberal government – not one of eight and twelve years ago.
It seems to me that this election the Ontario Liberals have adopted a policy to promise the moon and to promise big. They hope people would buy it and if they get re-elected, they will do whatever they want to do regardless. And why not? It worked in the last election for them.
So I come back to the green energy job growth pledge. Why are the Liberals only promising 50,000 jobs and not more? But does it really matter? They won’t feel compelled to deliver on it. The onus comes down to the Ontario voters elect a government with a least the hope that they would deliver on their promises. McGuinty has proven he can’t do that.
