Up for only an hour, my Progressive Conservative lawn sign was vandalized
It only went up at about 3 pm this afternoon, and by 4 pm, my lawn sign for Progressive Conservative candidate Justine Deluce was intentionally destroyed.
The riding where I live, St. Pauls', is dominated by Liberal cabinet Minister Eric Hoskins. Hoskins is a decent guy, but he's part of the most corrupt, incompetent government in Ontario's history. The backlash throughout the province is such that the predatory public service union bosses feel threatened by tomorrow's election in a way they haven't felt in years. Whatever the level of enthusiasm that Ontarians may or may not feel for PC leader Tim Hudak, the incompetent, corrupt and occasionally vile government of Kathleen Wynne has soured most of the public towards her. But the one segment that would like to see her reelected are the union bosses to whom she has made promises that would put Ontario in the poor house for decades.
So far, I have yet to meet anyone fooled by Wynne's "made-in-Ontario" pension proposal. Her scheme to have a provincial pension plan would drive taxes up by about a thousand dollars per year for each taxpayer. And most people expect that Wynne's completely inept government wouldn't be giving retirees more money, it would raid the fund to pay the interest on the massive, unprecedented Ontario government debt.
In tomorrow's election, the choices are either Andrea Horvath's socialist NDP, Kathleen Wynne's less competent NDP that calls itself "Liberals," and Tim Hudak's Progressive Conservatives. I'm ready to take a chance on the devil I don't know. Because the devil I know is far too destructive to give her any more time in power.
