Appointed by her position of Premier by her Ontario Liberal Party colleagues, but dodging a general election the way O.J. Simpson used to dodge defensive backs, Kathleen Wynne evidently identifies with unelected leaders. So much so that even though the province's City of Toronto Act lists the mayor as the city's head in interjurisdictional matters, Wynne refuses to meet with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, and will only deal with Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly.
Following her refusal to meet with Ford to discuss Provincial relief for expenses arising from last month's ice storm, Ford released a letter reminding the Premier that while Council stripped him of some duties, she is circumventing the Provincial Act by avoiding dealing with him.
It may come as a shock to learn that Kathleen Wynne, who was out buying votes with her embarrassing, ineptly handled grocery gift card hand-out to the wealthy, is unfamiliar with her obligations. She was in on the billion dollar vote buying scheme to cancel a pair of Gas Plants as a means of capturing a couple of by-elections the Liberals needed to stay in power.
The funny thing is for someone who has spent more than any other politician in Canadian history to buy votes, she is still afraid of facing the people she's been attempting to pay off. Could it be that the public realizes that in the end, the money Wynne has spent to buy votes will cost all of us for decades to come?
