Because Of Her Debt Binge, Kathleen Wynne Is The Enemy Of Ontario’s Social Programs

Unless Wynne is defeated, Ontario faces a future of social programs being slashed to the bone because of her decision to keep increasing the already immense burden of debt for her own selfish political benefit.

Kathleen Wynne is using her predictable pre-election tactic of announcing huge debt increases, while saying her opponent is dangerous because they oppose her newly announced spending.

It’s not a new tactic, but it has often been successful for radical leftists like Wynne.

It lets her position herself as the “defender of social programs.”

However, the reality is far different. Kathleen Wynne is actually the enemy of Ontario’s social programs, and here’s why:

Her massive debt binge = massive future cuts to social programs.

The more debt Ontario takes on because of Wynne’s Liberal budget deficits, the more money in the budget gets eaten up every year by debt servicing costs.

Ontario is already paying about a billion every month to service the debt, and that billion is money that is taken from potential investment in healthcare, infrastructure, support for parents, support for students, support for seniors, and other programs.

The Ontario Liberals have tripled the debt, and with interest rates having been increased lately, those debt servicing costs are becoming more and more burdensome. And Wynne wants to make it even worse.

As a result, Ontario – now the most heavily-indebted sub-sovereign jurisdiction on earth – faces an escalating debt problem, made all the worse by Kathleen Wynne’s policies.

This means that unless Wynne is defeated and some sanity is returned to Ontario’s finances, the province faces a future of tax hikes and incredibly painful social program cuts.

It would be disastrous for growth, and it would hurt the very people Wynne ‘claims’ to care about. This fact shows that Wynne’s policies are all about her own selfish political motives, as she must know that if the province continues on the path she has laid out it will mean severe suffering when the price for her endless debt binge is paid.

This is a point the Ontario PCs must make repeatedly. They cannot allow themselves to be put on the defensive as Wynne tries to claim the mantle of “social program defender.” The reality is that because of her debt binge policies, Kathleen Wynne is the enemy of Ontario’s social programs, and that truth must be heard far and wide.

Nutley wants to lead Alberta down that same road.

Grandma Wynne likes to portray herself as the nice grandma type who will save Ontarians from the big bad wolf Doug Ford. She knows she will have to walk back her promised goodies, implement austerity measures and raise taxes. She will call the BEFORE the election promises, “stretch goals” a term she used in the past when failed goodies failed to materialize. She is no social program defender. The traitor appears not a traitor. She is familiar to her victims.

We will all lose if Wynne is re-elected.

Spencer, you are so correct! Even her cabinet knows she has gone beyond the borders of reason with her promises- How do you get to the point where fourteen (14!) of your Liberal ministers say they won’t stand in the upcoming election???? Talk about a “vote of no confidence” from within! And why isn’t the mainstream media reporting this??Hmmmm…..


Who said that; the socialist/communist type parties such as the Lieberals, have over half of the controlled, bought out, crippled population on their high wage government payroll. This government also has tentacles elsewhere and through out the small dwindling private sector. These people will all vote for Lieberals as they are scared of losing their life support even when the few thinking people left, know it has to collapse financially, and everyone will be without, they keep listening to how great our government controlled economy is doing. Our school system needs to be schooled badly, way to expensive, and it… Read more »

Wynne is merely acting as a true Liberal — everything she does, says, or wants to do, is based on that Liberal philosophy that: “What’s yours is mine and what’s mine is my own.” Saves a lot of honest thinking.

Exactly and this needs to be emphasized. Although perhaps the Liberals have figured their chances of winning this June are not very high so this is more about trying to save as many seats as they can and if they do win, it will almost certainly be a minority followed by a loss once the PCs have a new leader so the chances of the Liberals being in power long enough to see the negative impacts is nil. Instead it will be the PCs who have to clean up the mess and get blamed for it and then the Liberals… Read more »

Absolutely right. Unfortunately Ford will not do any better for Ontario’s disabled, seniors and other vulnerable citizens. We deserve more from our public officials, and if we truly want this we cannot settle for the slightly lesser of two evils.

To say that Wynne can claim the title of social program defender is like saying that a fox would be a great guard for the hen house. Remember that socialism , liberalism and communism all have the same goal in mind when they are in power, that is to make everyone including businesses a slave and being dependent upon the government for everything. McGuinty and Wynne have been doing just that to Ontarians for the last 15 years. Starting by raising taxes, that crippled business and eventually lead to them being dependent upon government grants. loans and subsidies of as… Read more »

Maybe Canadians should re-think transfer payments to the Provinces!

How about suspending payments to provinces that run deficits recklessly?

In 2019 Canadians must consider the election of a Non-Partisan Canadian Government!
