S&P downgrade predictable result of three year trend

Marissa SemkiwRebel Commentator

I sit down with Christine VanGeyn of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation to discuss Ontario's recent credit rating downgrade by Standard & Poor's.

We discuss how we got here and what the downgrade will mean for the average Ontarian and for all Canadians.

I am expecting to see Wynne with arms outstretched (is she trying to part the Red Sea?), get up on her pulpit (no offence meant to religious leaders) and pontificate that it really is the fault of Harper and his Conservative government! And it is a “red” sea of debt in which Ontario is swimming!

Well Jason – I would say it this way – Ontario has a large amount of fkg stupid idiots that ignore their wallets and choose communist pigs like WYNNE – putting lipstick on a pig does not change the species. Ontario is full of stupid idiots who love the nazi’s in queen’s park – and what happens to the stupids from Ontario? Well their taxes go up and they lose their houses.

Should be fun to watch – get the Orville Redenbacher – when stupid Ontarians wake up to the reality that they are responsible for PIG WYNNE, then we might see change.

Ontario is full of complete fkg socialist pig idiots – it’s just that simple.

Well said Vlad… I think. But not all the voters voted for that trash. Unfortunately, Ontario has an overwhelming amount of Liberal supporters. Many have become so complacent in the government running everything that they would be lost if they had to do things for themselves. I for one don’t have that problem. I tried to get people to go for Hudak instead of Wynne, but my warnings fell on deaf ears.

When those socialists come banging at my “gates” for handouts, I’ll be laughing. You know what they say about karma? Guess what? That’s EXACTLY what’s happening.

Hudak said 100,000 big fat blotus goobermint jobs would be gone. The truth hurts. So like a bunch of dumb asses, Ontario voters ran toward PIG WYNNE who had a nice fluffier message.

In short, if Ontario voters weren`t so fkg naive and fkg stupid, PIG WYNNE would have been out.

Now fkg stupid and fkg naive Ontario voters are complaining about Patrick Brown (change that name from PC to Conservative Patrick) as the next premier.

PIG WYNNE is adolf hitler with bewbs – and Ontario voters chose this. Look in the mirror Ontario – this is the problem with Queen`s Park.

If we had a Liberal government federally for the past decade also. Would we not start to look like Greece? I still have trouble understanding how Wynne won. And a majority.

I moved out of Ontario 22 years ago, both my wife and I are from Toronto and all 3 of our kids were also born there. I’m so glad I/we moved. I get the heaves every time I hear or see Wynne, if I was still living there I would be throwing up every day.
My home province used to be a beautiful, healthy, vibrant, prosperous place to live and grow up and get married and raise a family, now it is on a fast track to ruin.
What a shameful state of affairs this homosexual premier has turned Ontario into. I use the term ‘homosexual’ because that is the agenda she/he (I don’t know which one Wynne is) is pushing on all of Ontario, especially with the education agenda.
I hope there are enough people in Ontario that are mad enough to storm Queens park and tar and feather this disgrace of a leader………………One can only hope!

Interesting……if you happen to hold interest in this debt…..:-)

My suggestion is to sell your interest to ANY supporter of Ms Winn….assuming they might be INTERESTED

Grip Pipe Wynn is to busy teaching School Kids the correct way to put a Condom on a Cucumber, to care about Ontario’s Debt. She is a useless ‘Waste of Space’.

Not only does Ontario now suck, it is a mere shadow of what it once was. Ruined!
commented 2015-07-07 21:12:26 -0400
Alberta won’t be able to pay more to Ontario and the other have nots for long. That will be interesting. Sask.. will probably be picking up the slack. I hope they can carry it alone. I suppose if Christie gets some mining and LNG going , BC may be able to help. It won’t be pretty. Ontario sucks. I was born there, I can say that.

Since this lie-beral government was elected in 2003 we have seen our electric bills rise three fold. We have seen these useless wind mills that are polluting our land scape with outrageous subsidies. Property taxes are on the rise fuel taxes have gone up. They have done everything to chaise businesses out of the province. Ontario’s has a single A+ credit rating, does any one know what Quebec’s rating is? Are we in Ontario in competition with Quebec to see who goes bankrupt first. Toronto loonies you elected this government now cough up your $23,028 each. We are in financial ruin it’s time we cut government spending. How about some Wynne Days just like that other commie had Ray Days
