He's going to cut taxes though! He's like the Oprah of Ontario. YOU GET A TAX CUT! AND YOU GET A TAX CUT! AND YOU GET A TAX CUT! EVERYBODY GETS A TAX CUT!

Sounds great until you realize that the provincial government runs the hospitals, paves the roads, runs a provincial police force, runs the schools, licenses bars/shops, maintains jails, runs courts, and has a staff to administer all of these functions.

But sure. LET'S ALL GET TAX CUTS!

The Ontario Liberals have increased taxes steadily for fifteen years, and increased spending even more, to more than double the debt.
Few in Ontario can honestly say this has led in any way to an improvement in society or in government services. It has instead led to the most highly paid government employees in the world. Just over 10% of the province's population is now a public sector employee. And of those, roughly 10% make over $100,000 a year, with generous benefits and pensions. It's an untenable situation.
