Jack Layton, NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and Ontario Election 2011
Sadly, the Ontario 2011 shows that NDP Ontario Leader Andrea Horwath has the same hypocrisy of the late Jack Layton, NDP Canada Leader. Judging from Jack’s machinations during the infamous 2009 Parliament Prorogue, Jack was on the search for glory and power. He so wanted to be King. Andrea Horwath in her present search for power has taken two positions that taint her sincerity and commitment to “the people, ” to the people of Ontario.
Sadly, Jack Layton and Andrea Horwath, and their NDP political party, both say they are the “defenders” of th people. Yet, Horwath has committed to reducing the HST tax, across the board, sucking up to the upper middle class and the rich! And Horwath’s position to move to centralizing future energy and green efforts in Ontario is likely sucking up to the unions; hurting “the people,” again; by stifling the key, entrepreneur, decentralized, localized efforts of “the people,” to take control of their energy resources and potentials.
We shall have to see if Andrea Horwath, NDP Ontario Leader is going to be just another hypocrite like Jack Layton and Olivia Chow; doing whatever it takes to get into power.
Horwath recently said she did not want to be the kingmaker in the Ontario election 2011, for Tim Hudak or Premier McGuinty. Hopefully, NDP Leader Horwath shall not become the expense king and queen that Jack Layton and Olivia Chow were — expensing some $1.16 Million to the Canadian taxpayers…. That $1.16 Million could have done a lot of good for a lot of Canadians trying to make ends meet in these troubled economic times!
Sadly, Jack Layton and Olivia Chow showed their hypocrisy of defending “the People,” when they voted AGAINST open transparency of M.P. expenses. The recent opening of M.P. expenses in Britain showed outrageous expense abuses; and arguably contributed to the fall of the British Government of the day! Taxpayers got a little angry as they discovered M.P.’s expensing such as porn, moats, and ineligible mortgages! Yet, Jack Layton and Olivia Chow and the NDP did not stand up for “the People” of Canada, to increase accountability by Canadian government leaders and M.P.’s!
Sadly, Andrea Horwath is showing her own hypocrisy in also NOT standing up for “the People.” It would have been interesting if Jack Layton had not passed away (may he rest in peace); to see him defend his inconsistencies, his expense account, his policies, his new Quebec M.P.’s.
Most sad is this Ontario election 2011. Premier McGuinty is on the verge of a majority government, after two terms where he has openly lied about his positions, and broken promise after promise to voters and citizens of the wonderful province of Ontario and Canada. Yet, now, Premier McGuinty stands on a possible record third majority government on October 6, 2011 election.
Partly, because Andrea Horwath, and the Ontario NDP, are hypocrites like Jack Layton, Olivia Chow and the federal NDP.
The good decent, hardworking voters, citizens of Ontario and Canada deserve so much better. Generations of their effort, precious wealth, energy, spirit is being stolen, wasted, squandered by politicians, bureaucrats and their elite rich friends in business and industry…
This Ontario 2011 election on October 6th, just shows how badly democracy and goodness has fallen amongst the mainstream political parties and government. Voters and people of Ontario, please wake up. Ths is the real fraud cheating you!
Governments taxing you, more and more; while giving you fewer and fewer services.
While the Ontario Securities Commission is investigating people like Weizhen Tang for fraud of millions, billions are given by Ontario government leaders, polticians and bureaucrats to their friends and supporters! What is the real ponzi scheme? Which is the real fraud, by Weizhen Tang or politicians?
Giving grants –your tax money– to their friends and supporters. Remember, as you go to vote that the McGuinty Government gave the biggest alternative energy deal worth billions of dollars to KOREAN company, Samsung! Fraud, corruption?!
