"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Soon we will know what the people decide

Responses to the previous post demonstrate the mood of the people in this election.

It does not bode well for office holders in general and Liberals in particular.

I  am not soliciting sympathy. I share the outrage  and frustration that the options are not palatable.

On one fleeting occasions,  the Premier claimed the opposition supported the decision to
cancel the contracts for the gas-fired hydro generation plants.

There were  no denials.

The cancellation was done on the eve of the last election and by The Honourable  Dalton Mcguinty

Just  as closures of coal-fired generation plants  in the same location were done on the eve of the previous election.

Both decisions were  a significant benefit to  incumbent  municipal politicians at the time.

Hazel's persuasion  was no doubt substantial . Hence the eagerness to dismiss the significance of
$2.1 billion waste of  public resources.

"The people didn't want it" she said.

"It's water under the bridge" she said.

"Let's look to the future" she said.

Well, no.... not yet.  Looking to the future is fine when the past is in order.

When the past is a scandalous mess that cannot be glossed over, elections are payback time.

Except election year once in four
When  people  decide ,not one day more
