Maybe it takes some organizations and public figures to state the obvious but WE, the PEOPLE have known for quite some time how literally bankrupt and dysfunctional this once great Province has become under the failed leadership of Dalton and Gang!

Maybe WE are like the Leafs Fans who KNOW how bad the season will be yet still support a losing effort no matter what!

Here is a couple of damming reports on really how bad this Province has become and lays the blame exactly where it should…at the feet of this “Governing Gang of Losers”!

Recent social and economic reports paint grim picture for province of Ontario

 By  | Canada Politics

Things are going from bad to worse in the province of Ontario.

In the last two days, two separate reports have painted a dire picture of Canada’s most populous province.

On Wednesday, the Ontario Common Front released a report — called “Falling Behind: Ontario’s Backslide into Widening Inequality, Growing Poverty and Cuts to Social Programs” — claiming Ontario sits in last place in Canada when it comes to every major social indicator including health care, education and social justice.

And it doesn’t mince words about who’s to blame.

“Most people would be shocked to know that Ontario has seen the largest increase in income inequality and the second largest jump in poverty rates in all of Canada,” says Ontario Federation of Labour President Sid Ryan in the organization’s press release.

“By cutting vital programs instead of reversing a decade of corporate tax cuts, the [Dalton McGuinty] government is handing our wealth over to bankers and CEOs. It is exacerbating inequality.”

The report pulled together national research suggesting Ontario funds all of its social programs at the lowest rate in Canada, has the second highest increase in poverty rates and the highest tuition rates in the country.

The second report, a Fraser Institute study, decries Ontario for its economic stagnation.

It claims that Ontario lags behind most provinces in terms of total employment growth (eighth among the provinces) and private-sector employment growth (seventh among the provinces).

Ontario also has the lengthiest durations of unemployment.

“Ontario may be Canada’s largest economy, but right now its labour market is slightly more attractive than that of only three Canadian provinces: Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick,” Amela Karabegović, one of the co-authors of the report said.

Things look bleak in the province once dubbed Canada’s economic engine, and the future doesn’t look much brighter.
