"It was a mistake also to expect a single generation to pay for infrastructure neglected for decades and designed to serve future generations.
There is to be a 25% cut in rates."
But it is okay for this generation and the next 2 to play for the debt. All she has done is lowered the rates now by re-mortgaging the debt. So that debt will be paid over the next 30 years! How much will that cost your grandchildren's grand-children? Think about that!
The government has not responded positively. They have responded in such a way to buy your vote at the next election and it appears that she has yours now. On the backs of our future.
This is utter BS from a crooked government trying to hoodwink the public.

I am not a fan of Kathleen Wynne. Anyone in the habit of reading this blog would know that.
I would have been pleased to supportChristine Elliott had she been chosen leader of the P.Cs.
I frankly and fulsomely do not appreciate Patrick Brown's method of winning the leadership. He
gave no thought to the party's chances.
Andrea Horvath is a prisoner of organized labour and their stance to save post office jobs in the last election was not in the general public interest. Times change. When it's called for, public policy has
to change with the times.
I see nothing wrong with children,grandchildren and great-grand -children sharing in the cost of
Infrastructure to supply their homes and business with electricity. It is and always has been the basic principle of debenture debt for public amenities .
The argument thatchildren will be be burdened by taxation is maudlin. They cannot expect to be free of debt any more than past generations.
Of course my choice is influenced by decisions made by government. How else would I decide?
It's not easy to admit mistakes in politics . This week Kathleen Wynne in a single statement admitted to three in hydro decisions. That takes courage.
I like courage. It's a scarce commodity in politics .
I don't like my intelligence being insulted.
I have an aversion to being swept along with the crowd.
