    Doug Ford - leader of Ontario PCs

    The US has enough checks and balances in its system to guard against a President taking actions against the best interests of their country. You may now get out from under the bed, no harm will come to you.

    And I'm reminded again that some Canadians can't debate Canadian politics without resorting to comparisons with the US.

    Maybe. And if the NDP does win a majority, it will be fun watching them try to clean up the financial mess that the Liberals left behind. I mean, Horwath will have a tough time finding a competent Cabinet with the bunch of inexperienced radicals that end up in the Legislature. As Horwath said it will be necessary to hold training courses to prepare them for the business of governance.

    Other factors are that disenchanted Liberal voters decide to move to the NDP, or simply stay home.
  5. Amazon to open massive distribution centre in Ottawa. Are they nuts? Six months of an NDP government and hydro rates will chase them out of Ontario.

      Amazon didn't confirm.  Why? I think they're waiting to see who'll win the election. 

      If Horwath wins - I bet it'll be bye-bye Amazon.

      In a statement, Amazon did not confirm its plans.

      “Amazon is constantly investigating new locations to support the growth and increase the flexibility of its North American network to address customers’ needs,” spokeswoman Shevaun Brown said in an email.

      “Amazon is not yet commenting on any specific plans in Ottawa.”

  6. Horwath looking into accusations made against a NDP candidate by the PCs. Betting she won't remove the candidate cause candidate nominations closed on the 18th.

      Another crackpot she stand behind - like - what part of Hitler does Horvath not understand...   now two NDPers want NDP to change their policy on Israel.

    Actually, it was not right before the election, but two and a half years ago, before Ford was PC leader. Nevertheless the allegation by the Liberals are serious and should be looked into by the authorities. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/doug-ford-pc-memberships-audio-recording-kinga-surma-1.4675893

    Ford said he will release a costed platform before the election. This could work in the PCs favour. Releasing the platform closer to the election will result in quite a bit of media attention. Also, Libs and NDP final campaign moves risk losing the spotlight to Ford's policies. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-doug-ford-says-hell-release-fully-costed-platform-before-ontario/
  9. Poll shows NDP in the lead in Ontario 2 weeks before election. Oh boy. Somebody give Horwath a calculator.

      Horwath will be worse than Wynne (spend-wise).  With the way it is right now, Ontario is sinking.

      If Horwath wins.......we must've been cursed.

      If Ford wants to run as being fiscally prudent, he should cost his plan, and he should refrain from blaming the media if there are crackheads in his cabinet.

  10. Hey JETS, thanks for the ride. It was good while it lasted. :)

      Uh-Ho, don't tell Justin. He would likely condemn the lack of diversity.

      In terms of entertaining hockey to watch the NHL is as good as it has ever been. In this fast paced, entertaining era, the Jets are among the most exciting teams to watch. Great season! 

      Now I'd love to see the Knights pull it off.  They've already accomplished in one season, something the Leafs haven't in 50. What a story!

      Yes the Jets impressed. Yet, if there was ever a Cinderella team Vegas is it.

  11. Here a Trump, there a Trump, everywhere a Trump. :rolleyes:

    Doug Ford - leader of Ontario PCs

    You've got the wrong country. Trump isn't running in this provincial election.
  13. So what. All three parties are in a bidding war to bribe voters for their support. Why would PCs not play the game that has been so profitable for the Liberals?
  14. Could it be true? Could the JETS win the Stanley Cup? A win tonight would bring the dream closer to reality. GO JETS

      Yuk, Vegas just scored. Don't rain on my parade you guys.
