The most disingenuous defence of the Tory numbers may come from Benjamin Zycher, hard-right U.S. economist, advocate of right-to-work laws and author of one of the consulting papers the Tories cite.
2014 ontario election
Rather than play coy about which party she would support in a minority setting, Andrea Horwath can and should state directly what program she would insist upon in any government.
There is no guarantee that any of the political parties in Ontario will bring forward new legislation banning for-profit plasma clinics should they win the election on June 12.
It's not a question of party democracy. It's about smarts and survival. NDP members should give Horwath a break and work to change leaders democratically instead of signing a mid-campaign letter.
Further to my post about numerical problems in Tim Hudak's jobs plan, some have asked me about precisely how the Conference Board report simulated the corporate tax reduction discussed.
The million jobs plan has a gaping 200,000 job hole in it, resulting from an obvious arithmetic error that throws into question the very competence of Tim Hudak's policy team.
A set of calculations show how Ontario Conservative leader Tim Hudak's promise to eliminate 100,000 public sector jobs will be felt at the local level, on cities and communities across the province.
When it comes to businesses in Ontario, there's one thing missing from the election platforms of Ontario's three main party leaders: an acknowledgement that tax cuts don't work.
It is impossible to say with certainty what the electoral outcome of Ontario's election will be. However, the political outcome is far easier to discern: after the election there will be shift right.
Hudak and Harper and Ford, oh my! Would Ontario really inflict such a neocon dystopia on themselves? In a province where Ford's re-election has not been laughed off, anything is possible.
