    Simply brilliant.

    Print and post to have on hand for all those people in your office who simply don’t get it.

    I love the way Tim Hudak aspires to make Ontario a low-tax haven, like such wonderful states as Alabama and Wisconsin… World class destinations… Now excuse me while I go self-immolate…

    Hey Hudak! The 80s called to say they were wrong.

      Didn’t Canada dodge the recession? I don’t know anyone who lost their job or a home because of it.

        I know a people who lost their jobs in cuts and layoffs. Canada’s problems seem to simmer rather than full boil.

        I know a bunch who were given the choice between a massive pay cut and being let go.

        Foot traffic in the downtown core was down 20%.

        Many many many people laid off.

      • torontothegreat

        We were highly affected by it. I had a really hard time securing investment from angel’s that were throwing money around 3 months prior. The banks were affected (to some degree) and a lot of company’s (especially in the goods and manufacturing segments) laid off people and made moves to shrink operating costs by moving or consolidating services.

      1. And who pays for that? I don’t want to pay for no student tuition!
      2. Not so dependent on America.

      • OgtheDim

        Ur already paying for some student tuition.

        “I don’t want to pay for no student tuition!”

        Er…

      • torontothegreat

        Shhh… The grown ups are talking…

  • Sharon Stock Feren

    Do any of these politicians talk or listen to real people?

    • tyrannosaurus_rek

      Real People? Are they listed on the TSX?

    When I tilt my head to the right I think I see the face of Jesus in that pile of cash! Or perhaps its the face of Rob Ford, Harris, or Harper, so hard to tell.

    • dsmithhfx

      I see the face of insane, planet-destroying greed. These idiots are begging to be protected from their own, worst impulses.
