Just like the thick Trump swamp, the Ford swamp is filling in.

Wynne spent billions of taxpayer money on her re-election campaigns and you fell all over yourself making up excuses every single time.

Oh right. Twelve years after PC's left office you were still frantically making excuses for the Liberals by blaming Mike Harris.

Never heard of it. Nobody has posted any cites so I have no information to go by. It's pretty petty stuff anyway compared to a party spending billions of taxpayer dollars to win an election. And nobody who defends the latter has any business criticizing the  former.

I blame Harris for what Harris did, you are blaming Wynne for what Ford did. Anyone can see the difference.

Care to point out the many times people asked me for cites and I couldn't provide one? Even once?
Your source points out that Ford fired a number of Liberals from patronage appointments. Care to poitn out the number of times you complained about Liberal patronage appointments, by the way? Then it hired a lawyer known and trusted by the Fords to some position or other. But it doesn't say much about whether this is new or a replacement, or what the responsibilities are. That makes it hard to figure out if the salary is remotely proper. Offhand I'd say it was far too much. But then, I also think we should cut the salaries of Hospital and University CEOs in half (or more). They make salaries like this.

You blame Harris for what Wynn and McGuinty did, and blame Ford for what Wynne did, and if ever a time comes when you can't find a tory to blame for what your beloved Liberals have wrought you keep your mouth shut or make up some party hack defense.

Care to point that out? I would like a cite, as you claim to always provide.

March 1 2017  No they shouldn't. We need a real government that is not afraid to rip up the Mike Harris Electricity Act of 1998 and go back to public utilities instead of vectoring profit to crony friends in private industry.
b.t.w. it sounds like the deals are renegotiated for lower cost over longer term. That is like having your $40/month 2-year contract with bell extended into a $33/month 3-year contract.

jan 24, 2017
 I am blaming Harris of the Electricity Act that lead to privatization. Yes the feed in tariffs have increased prices, but they are a very minor part of the hydro rates (around 6%). Pretending they are the reason we have high hydro costs is misleading.

jan 23, 2017
I agree that privatizing hydro was a big mistake, but let us not forget that is the Mike Harris policy. Wynne failed big time in not reversing that, but continuing a failed policy is different than creating one.

sept 11, 2016
As I have said countless times, the Liberals failed miserably because they didn't spend the hundreds of billions required to fix Mike Harris's destruction of our public utility.

All examples of blaming Harris for what Harris did. You might even notice that I blamed Wynne for her failings also. What I didn't do was excuse Wynne failure by saying Harris did it as well.

Now, are you going to accept that Ford filled up the swamp or are you going to continue to deflect?
