Daily now we are subjected to abuse and insulting statements from the non elected mouth of the Liberal leader in Queen’s Park!
Discussing what taxes and tolls are to be forced on Ontario citizen’s to pay for Toronto’s transit woes is like putting the cart before the horse, but that doesn’t stop Andrea Horwath and Kathleen Wynne from quacking off ridiculous platitudes to accommodate their “backers and lobbyists” who support these failures with $$$$$ for their own foul agendas that give them a pecking order at the tax payers trough!
Maybe we should end this charade and get an election on the table?
But then that might be an end to their pay cheques from the poor buggers, the tax payers!

Premier Kathleen Wynne seems to have forgotten something in her rush to impose new taxes and tolls on Ontarians to pay for the Liberals’ $50-billion, 25-year Big Move transit scheme.
What she’s forgotten is the voters.
Voters who must have the final say on this issue, the majority of whom, polls show, aren’t in favour of what Wynne’s proposing.
But there’s a simple solution.
Wynne needs to end her tiresome dance of the seven veils before friendly crowds of elites, hinting at which taxes and tolls she’s thinking of imposing, and start coming clean with the public.
Especially so, since she has no electoral mandate to implement any new taxes or tolls, given that she was chosen as premier by Liberal partisans, not democratically confirmed in a general election.
The honest thing for Wynne to do would be to tell the public now what taxes and tolls she’s prepared to implement to fund the Big Move and then to run on them in the next election.
So far, the only people the public is hearing from on that issue are special interest groups like the Toronto Region Board of Trade and unelected bureaucrats at City Hall.
In June, unelected bureaucrats at Metrolinx, the province’s regional transportation agency, will chime in, again, on which new taxes and tolls they favour.
Clearly, this is all part of a co-ordinated plan by like-minded elites to wear down the public into thinking they have no choice but to meekly accept higher taxes and tolls to pay for transit.
