Left-wing talking points are getting tiresome

June 2022

Although it’s highly unlikely that Andrea Horwath, or even Steven Del Duca, will defeat Premier Doug Ford on Thursday, I still would like to make some points for future reference. 

When Horwath talks about Ford’s policies only benefitting “his buddies,” does she realize that “Ford’s buddies” would be her buddies too if she was to form government?  Those who aggressively lobby the government for contracts will lobby whichever party is in power, and usually donate something to all political parties to hedge their bets.  How many of “Ford’s buddies” have also donated to the NDP and the Liberals too? 

Also, while her fearmongering that Ford will cut things like healthcare may prove to be true, it’s also true that with our current debt levels at all levels of government, there will eventually have to be either cuts in spending or services in all areas, or drastic increases in taxes.  Sure, it’s great to receive “free” things healthcare, but that’s why we have such a high level of taxation in Canada.  Socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money.

Finally, can we all stop with the “Buck-a-Beer” talking point?  Although I don’t have any insider information, I interpreted Ford’s promise as a licence for brewers to charge a buck for a beer ONLY IF they wanted to, not that they were required by law to sell their beer for that cost.
