The polite way of saying the Ontario Liberals are corrupt or ethically challenged is to repeat what ONPC (Progressive Conservative) Leader Patrick Brown said this week in the Ontario Legislature just before Ontario Liberal Finance Minister Charles Sousa presented the Liberal budget — that as the government’s chef, he was “cooking the books.”
Well, in my opinion, it is past time for being polite. The Ontario Liberals have been corrupt for quite some time. They are ruled by ideology at all cost, in this case, a green philosophy that only benefits environmental activists and those with 20 year contracts in the Feed-in-Tariff — FIT program.
In fact, the Liberals will say anything or do anything to get elected or re-elected. A particularly favourable approach for Liberals to win Ontario elections (and federally as well, I might add) is to scare voters into voting Liberal. Ah, those scary Conservatives. Blah, blah, blah. Which, unfortunately, worked federally in 2015 and in Ontario in 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2014!!
For example, back during the Ontario election in 2003, then opposition Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty made a very public “written” pledge that, if elected with a majority government, his Liberals would not raise taxes.
Except that pledge was an outright lie.
