Imagine What It Would Be Like Without M&M's


Not the candy. I'm talking about McGuinty and Miller. While either an Ontario or Toronto election are in the distant future, signs in the last few weeks seem to indicate that both the people of Ontario and Toronto are finally starting to pay attention to how poorly mismanaged both the Premier and Mayor have done their respectful jobs.

In McGuinty's case, Ontario has seen a steady decline since he first came to office. OLC scandals, the ongoing eHealth debacle, and the loss of jobs at a pace never seen before in the province all have McGuinty's fingerprints all over them. And Ontario has done the unthinkable, falling in to have-not status. That alone should be enough to make voters take notice. But McGuinty has gained and remained in office due to a weak opposition party and leader. With the election of Tim Hudak as new leader of the PC that should change. While John Tory is a decent man and excellent businessman, provincial politics just didn't seem to be the appropriate role for him.

Which takes us to mayor David Miller. Toronto has been on a greater downward spiral than the province thanks to Miller's socialist ideas, which consist mostly of overtaxing residents of the city, and then blowing that tax revenue on policies that bring no bang for the buck. And Miller now has a Pandora's box opened with the trash strike (name seems appropriate). Miller has been successful in getting both elected and re-elected by kowtowing to the unions, and is now caught in the position of doing what's best for him or the city. Toronto has far worse problems than a garbage strike, but it has just magnified the city's problems under Miller's leadership. The fact Miller just cost the people of Toronto federal stimulus funds by making only one application that didn't meet guidelines shows his ignorance of doing things properly.Ironically enough, polls show John Tory would beat Miller in an election for mayor. Is it possible voters now realize the made a boo-boo by not voting for Tory when he ran for mayor before? I think Tory would run the city in a way similar to Mel Lastman. Say what you will about Mel, but he always put the city first, and the residents of Toronto reaped the rewards of his time in office.

Imagine a time with no McGuinty or Miller. We can all dream of those days ahead.

The Country isn't too well off either. Blame Harper for this and Ontario, for making
Ontario pay for half of everything.

Well Mouse:
The country is doing just fine, thank you. Blame the Toronto Red Star for making you feel differently. Or blame the Montreal Socialist Liberals and their diaspora for making you so blind. You cannot think for yourself or analyze facts can you. The old Historical Ontario Grits had something going for them but the Montreal diaspora mocked them and debased the poor souls.

Lately these old style Grits, such as me, have moved over to the new centrist party. The Conservative Party will continue to grow stronger over the coming years. During the occasional Liberal election win the people will gradually learn where their bread is buttered. The place for continued prosperity and freedom for the individual is within the Conservative party.

Toronto is so screwed that the rest of Canada is actually starting to feel sorry for you.

Haven't heard a Toronto joke in hours . . .

I thought that Dalton did an excellent job on toronto for toronto by bringing it to its knees-the MSM thinks nothing of it- Ontario that is. In fact, the MSM has helped Dalton to create Ontario to where it is today. A HAVE-NOT PROVINCE.

Not dream Paul, ir will happen plus no G/M, T/S. CBC-CTV LIBERAL CRAP.

Imagine when canadians awake to the findings that they were stolen from by the liberal party of canada and the LPOC refusal to return the missing money back to the public and the liberal media refusal to ask the liberals for the return of our money.

The newspaper says that David Miller lives close to and passes High Park subway station every day on his way into work.

I would suggest leaving your garbage there at High Park subway station but at the Quebec Avenue entrance just north of Bloor Street West so you don't block the buses leaving from the High Park Avenue exit.

Please spread this around.
