We need change in Ontario, and we need change in London North Centre!
The Liberals’ record raises key questions: Do Ontarians want the same reckless and politically corrupt government? After 14 years of waste, scandal and mismanagement of your tax dollars, how can anyone trust Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals every again?
Here are some of the highlights of the Liberal record over the last 14 years:
Ontarians to make a quick buck for the government
Five OPP investigations
Doubling the debt – forcing our kids and grandkids to pay for today’s Liberal excess
Deep cuts to health care at a time when more and more Ontarians are depending on it
The loss of hundreds of thousands of good-paying manufacturing jobs as job-creators flee
Ontario and make it harder for young and old to find good paying work
Billion dollar eHealth boondoggle
Kicking 3,500 children with autism off of the wait list for life-changing IBI therapy
Chaos in education – 600 schools closed or slated for closure
Millions spent on partisan, taxpayer funded vanity ads the Auditor General would have blocked.
All to convince Ontarians to re-elect a government that is hurting Ontario
Massive tax hikes including the vehicle and license fees and the health tax
The Cap-and-Trade cash grab which has helped spike our energy prices through the roof
TAXES, TAXES & MORE TAXES that are keeping families from getting ahead and strangling
job-creators from creating opportunities.
The collapse of supervision for felons on probation - llowing violent sex offenders on parole to
roam the streets unsupervised
Gas plants scandal that cost $1.1 billion and counting
Kathleen Wynne’s decisions, driven by what’s best for her and her insider friends, are making it harder for you and your family to get by, wasting your money, and threatening the things we value most like healthcare, education, and services for those in need.
