Ontario Throws Public Sector Workers Under the Deficit Bus. AGAIN!

leave a comment »

“All of us who are paid with public tax dollars have a role to play here,” Finance Minister Dwight Duncan said in a speech to the legislature. “We’re all in this together.”

Taxpayers have little or nothing to do with the administration and management of the services we pay taxes for. Politicians are quick to blame users for problems of their own making and taxpayers need to push back.

What’s more, Mr Duncun and every single MPP sitting in Queen’s Park have received wage increases totalling 28% since 2007! That’s right folks. The very politicians that claim you and I are the cause of their own management nightmares (eHealth, LHINs) and have returned to using that classic old school tactic of blame run away deficit spending on greedy public sector workers while they enjoyed an average annual wage increase of 9.5% every year since 2007!

Their total pay hike since December now stands at 28 percent, an amount sure to infuriate those who already foot their bills – including the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation.

Even during the so-call financial apocalypse they continues to rack in nearly double digital wage hikes while pouring BILLION$ taxpayer dollars down the gullets of the automotive and similarly broken and unsustainable business models yet it is the Ontario taxpayer and more importantly the public sector workers who bare the brunt of Dah!cun’s dull budget axe.

The failures on virtually every level of government in Canada are just too obvious to ignore anymore. Yet even as these failures grow in size and cost, governments continue to spin new ways to blame the taxpayer and public sector workers for their self-inflicted spending deficits woes.

Applying Mr. Duh!can’s gifted management approach why didn’t freeze the wages of medical professionals to help control healthcare costs or freeze the wages of HydroOne executive packages to help control the ballooning costs of electricity in Ontario? Why?  Because his like all the other politicans of today are spineless little weasels who only care about lasting the required terms to collect their guilded TAXPAYER funded pensions after just 8 years at Queen’s Park!

This most recent act of budget buffoonery simply shines a very bright light on a spectacularly simple and stupid idea that freeze wages  will solve the many and large structural deficits the Ontario government has refused to address over the last three DECADES!. Of course, when all else fails blame the public sector workers.

McGuinty and his merry band of deficit spending idiots had better be polishing up their resumes and VCs before the next provincial election because heaven knows they surely can’t be expecting to win an election by freezing wages and taxing the very sector on Ontario’s economy that is most likely to contribute the MOST to Ontario’s future growth.

A despicable act of self-preservation akin to eating your offspring.
