My thoughts on the First Leadership Debate in Ontario

It was a few days ago when I wrote a blog about my thoughts on the next Ontario election, and while I focused on Doug Ford and Kathleen Wynne, the people of the hour. I didn’t go into everything I could have because I never even mentioned Andrea Horwath, the leader of the NDP, or Mike Schreiner, the leader of the Green Party. Last night, the first debate was taking place between the leaders of the political leaders in Ontario, so I tuned in to CityNews around 5:30, who was hosting the match. The first thing I saw was a bunch of ‘green’ fanatics with tape on their mouths, protesting the fact Mr. Schreiner wasn’t allowed a place in the debate. Rules are rules, so if your party doesn’t have a delegate in every single riding in Ontario, you can’t say you represent Ontario. At 6:10, the debate started. If you want to see my thoughts on it, as I was watching, you can go here.

The debate was fascinating to watch. Mainly, we had the fear mongering from both Andrea Horwath and Kathleen Wynne, raising the spectre of ‘Doug Ford is going to fire people’ to save the $6 billion, when Doug Ford says he’s going to find efficiencies to lower the taxpayer burden. I’ve never been one to respond to fear tactics. I’d rather take a step back, learn and come up with a strategy to deal with things. I don’t buy any of the fear mongering of Andrea Horwath or Kathleen Wynne, who want to create a narrative in which we have the choice between ‘care or cut’. I went over many of the reasons why Kathleen Wynne can’t be trusted. Unfortunately, it doesn’t mean anything for Doug Ford, because the votes will switch from Wynne to Horwath.

As one pundit said, Kathleen Wynne looked like the living dead.

So, we now know this contest for who will lead Ontario will be between Doug Ford and Andrea Horwath. Even City News considers Doug Ford the winner, but Millennials couldn’t care less. It shows that an entire generation doesn’t want to listen to what the other side says. Kinda like this person. They couldn’t even believe people were voting for Doug Ford in the poll. The same generation who probably bought that Hillary Clinton had a 98% of winning and Trump is colluding with the Russians, though not one piece of evidence has been seen in over a year and a half. It means that Andrea Horwath will have a dedicated voting block who will vote for her, even if her policies are complete and utter nonsense. Has nobody told her that socialism doesn’t work yet?

She promises all kinds of free things, from free prescriptions for everybody, buying back Ontario Hydro to lower prices, giving free dental care and so many other things. This sounds ‘good’ doesn’t it, but here’s the reality. First, if you make prescriptions and dental care for free, people will lose their jobs. Not the pharmacists or the dentists, but extended coverage companies that help people pay for those expenses, like Manulife financial. Second, as I was going through the job program that got me my last job, a representative from Ontario Works said they would pay for benefits for anybody who was working who didn’t have benefits. They didn’t want people to quit their jobs to get the services for drugs and other benefits, so anybody in Ontario who has a job who doesn’t have benefits, you can go to your local Ontario Works office and ask for benefits there, to cover these things that Andrea Horwath is promising to everybody. I don’t like the idea of promising the world that would eventually lead to people losing their jobs.

On the buying back of Hydro One to make it public. While I do usually extol the virtues of privatisation because competition lowers prices, how do you do that with hydro? The Ontario government already owns all the plants, not some private company. So, no real competition is going to happen. But it would take billions of dollars to buy back Hydro One. It’s not like Ontario residents are going to foot a $39.4 billion bill for what Wynne has done to ‘reduce electricity prices’, Horwath is going to add onto it by trying to repurchase Hydro One. How much debt needs to be added to us to ‘make Ontario right’. This kind of oxymoron shit doesn’t make sense. For Ontario residents, who use less electricity now than in 1990, to pay less for electricity the government has to pack on the debt that Ontario residents will have to pay back. Andrea, that doesn’t make sense, and if it doesn’t make sense than it can’t be the truth.

On the other hand, we have Doug Ford who did win the debate. He remained calm, cool and collected. His message was loud and clear; I want to work with communities and agencies so that we can come up with the best possible services available. He said he was going to find efficiencies to lower government spending without sacrificing jobs, probably looking to modernising many different services to make it work. Like, why do agencies like Ontario Works and ODSP income forms have to be on paper, when putting them online would be more accessible with everything from those offices to MacDonald having free Wi-fi or Internet. Imagine the millions that could be saved in inefficiencies through buying paper and sending things through the mail if we did that – setup forms and accounts online to make things easier for Ontario residents to inform those agencies of their income.

Or how about the $650,000 Marijuana logo, which is so plain looking, a high school student could have designed it for free. $1 Billion of waste by cancelling gas plants. Why we’re even doing anything like building plants when we’re using 25% less electricity today than we did in the 1990s. I’d just work on maintaining what we already have, but not building new power plants at all.

And sorry, Andrea Horwath said she is going to tax people who flip properties when they are providing an essential service for the community by improving properties, which is stupid. Most likely, the reason the property prices in Toronto and other places in Canada like Vancouver are going up so quickly is the foreign buyers like the Chinese buying up property here. They don’t live here, but buy property here, increasing the demand and the prices. It has nothing to do with people improving properties and helping their communities.

I’m still saying Doug Ford is the man to lead Ontario. We can’t fall for the fear mongering of Andrea Horwath and Kathleen Wynne, saying ‘Thousands of jobs will be cut’. Where’s the evidence of this? I see a lot of conjecture, but nothing concrete. Like I said about Trump, I will renounce him once he starts rounding up Mexicans into death camps – which hasn’t materialised yet. I’ll renounce Doug Ford when he starts cutting jobs. If I don’t see it, I will not acknowledge their hissy fit rants.

Which is something they probably knew already? There is a solid block of people who will vote Doug Ford because they see him as someone who will get things done. So, the the attacks on Doug Ford for supporting Tanya Granic Allan is already coming. Condemning her for saying she wished her native Croatia would not implement the very same Soviet Union ideas they dropped when the iron curtain fell – calling them Homophobic. I was talking to one of the breeders of my families new dog, and I made a statement. People thought the Cold War stopped in the 1990s when a wall fell, but now we are still fighting against the communist menace again. It’s like in the 1990s, the communists faked their death, making us relax, so they could infect a whole generation of youth who are so socialist, they’re ready to revolt at a moment’s notice. Like I said, 80% of millennials would vote for Kathleen Wynne or Andrea Horwath.

Yuri Bezemenov warned us, and we didn’t listen. Our nation, every nation has to tip-toe around these issues now. Hell, I watched Steve Paikin apologise for laughing at an indigenous man’s joke about ‘colonialism’, asking if it were okay, only for Bob Joseph to say, this is a ‘safe space’. Why does Steve or anybody else have to be so careful with our language? Here’s the reason – if we don’t, we get shouted down as racist, sexist and homophobic. Take Doug Ford little lapse in saying Kathleen Wynne had a nice smile, just before he asked her when she lost her way?

To many, it was a sexist example of patriarchy. Take this fine young gentleman.

Which brings me to the next smear campaign against Doug Ford, Doug Ford must be evil because white supremacists say they’re voting Doug Ford. Nobody controls who votes for them. If Kathleen Wynne did her job, there wouldn’t be any White Nationalists, as she worked to make Ontario the best province in Canada, which it indeed hasn’t been. If people were happy with your performance than nobody would listen to white supremacists, and you would keep your job. You messed up, and we’re not going to take it anymore.

It’s time to realize, we are seriously in a culture war and we need people to stand up against it and fight back. Every blog counts. Every meme counts. Every video counts. We need to help people realise the conditioning they have had to always side with ‘leftism’ so they can open the door and walk right through and think independently, and the debate last night shows that more than ever.

Thanks for reading and have an excellent day guys.
