Mike Harris did nothing wrong.

Recommended Posts

If Mike Harris didn't retird, would he have won a third striaght majority against Dalton McGuinty? It could have happened.

He could also have been mugged by the legions of pissed off people in Ontario. It could have happened.

I don't think there's enough teachers in Ontario to be considered "legions".

The "Legions " that voted for Harris twice to give him majority governments were the 905 ers. The same "Legions" that it looks like will give Harper a majority.Watch for it !

Legions of hard working tax paying middle class families.

Only Conservative die-hards work hard and pay taxes, of course.

The same inarticulate nonsense that won George Bush his place in history. "It's hard work."

Harris was nothing more than a control freak douchebag.

Hopefully he will fall down into a sewer and never be heard from again.

What.. he hasnt been heard from ?

Don't you worry , I'll post lots of paritsan leftist remarks, to upset all the righties. In this case, I was trying for a little humour, ahh alas.. seems I've stumbled onto one of those forums that is all pseudo-serious..

Despite what teachers say mike harris was a great premiere, way better then Dalton McGuinty who we can all agree has to be the worst premiere in history. Mike harris stood up to the teachers union at the time I was in public school and I remember the student council president and the principal bad mouthing Mike harris in front of the entire school and union posters lined the hallways. He cut taxs and ran surpluses most of the time despite the fact that most premiers before and after him could never achieve a surplus. One of the best things about mike harris is that he did what he said he was going to do and talked from one side of his mouth not two which more then we can say for McGuinty or Martin

Generalize more? The reason they were bad mouthing him is because whether they were right or wrong, they felt he was damaging the education system, so they were trying to protect their jobs and the futures of the children they taught.

And even tho I'm left wing, look at who was before Mike Harris..Bob Rae, and who would have thought a NDP party would spend alot? Even during an economic slump?

And then.. an Conservative government takes power during an economic upswing, cuts spending all over the place, and now they have a surplus?? Not surprising at all. Then they cut more and more taxes, and Mr.Harris decided to leave. The inept Ernie Eves takes over for a bit, then loses an election.

In comes Dalton McGuinty, not the most flamboyant politician ever, and hmm.. his government has to deal with some deficit that has suddenly occured... OMG YOU ARE AWFUL DALTON.

Mr.Harris was far from a great premier, using the OPP has his own little play thing was not an encouraging sign, and I can only hope he will stay out of federal politics.

O and here's a tip, all politicians talk out of multiple sides of their mouths, all of them. From Harris to McGuinty to Chretien to Martin to Harper to Layton to Duceppe, every last one of them does it.

The reason why dalton is the worst premier in history is because of his constant lies, obvious corruption and lack of understanding. For instance the only promise he is for filling is to close a coal-fired power generation plants that supply approximately 20% of Ontario's electricity needs. Now your bill has not increased but that rate the business has to pay is astronomical in the summertime, so dalton knows he will have to buy power from new york at $.50 a kilowatt hour when Ontario residential users are paying about seven cents a kilowatt hour. Instead of trying to be diplomatic in purchasing power from Qu├ębec the premier continues to buy power from New York at astronomical rates in the summertime, pushing Ontario power generation Corp further into debt every day and placing jobs at risk by charging businesses astronomical power rates.

Dalton is not awful just because he has to deal with a "defecit," he is awful on so many other levels as well; how many promises has he made, and then broken? Why are tuition fees increasing in Ontario? Why are we paying MORE in taxes (excuse me, "premiums?") The answer is simple: Dalton McGuinty. I think it's time to bring back Ontario's natural ruling party.

This happens every time you have an NDP government. They leave the finances in such a sorry state that the new government has no choice but to make the required corrections. This happened in Ontario where it cost the taxpayers of the province $12 billion to educate Bob Rae. Then it happened in BC after 2 terms of NDP government.

All the NDP is capable of doing is to disrupt the government finances to the point where it takes a generation or more to straighten out the books. And who becomes the "bad guy"? You said it -- the premiers that replace them such as Mike Harris and Gordon Campbell .. Go figure!!!

The death of the NDP forever would be the best thing that could happen for Canada. They survive only by catering to special interest groups.

When the NDP had Ontario we had the worst recession since the 1930tys Bob Rea saved jobs with the days off.Harris was Lucky things got a lot better in the economy

I am no fan of Harris but his far right ilk is necessary after a far left government.

The Greeks said it best "everything in moderation."

Just as often as conservative governments except the devastating left by conservatives extends beyond just finances.
