Brian Lilley: Wynne's "free tuition" scheme is a scam -- and non-Ontarians will have to pay for it

Brian LilleyArchive

On my last day guest hosting for Ezra Levant, I talk about one of the biggest features of the Ontario Liberals' new budget: The promise of free university tuition for students whose families earn less than $50,000 per year.

When you hear the Liberals' explanation, the idea actually sounds fairly reasonable, but I'll explain why this is just another Kathleen Wynne scam.

And because Ontario is now a have-not province, other Canadians will have to help pay for it!

THEN: Simon Kent, Managing Editor of Breitbart London, talks to me about "Brexit," the heated debate over Britain leaving the European Union.

NEXT: How the Liberals want to change Canada, and hide our history.

FINALLY: Your letters to me!

Thanks for tuning in all this week.

And remember to listen to my daily podcast here at TheRebel.media.

Free education, means free indoctrination!

What a shameful excuse for a leader. Wynnie’s a leader alright, leading people straight to hell. This is just more cash for Wynnie’s interest payments on the debt that she’s racked up in ON. Wynnie should be sitting in jail for misuse of public funds, and for bribing and falsifying reports.

Having our entire bureaucracy made up of anti-Canadian anti-democratic socialists is a huge problem.
It’s imperative for a Conservative Gov to write legislation for freedom from unions, then proceed to replace them all with pro-Canadian staff. One of the many things Harper coulda / shoulda done but didn’t. Conservatives aren’t bold enough. Lefty’s wouldn’t think twice about doing something like this (in reverse) once in power.
commented 2016-02-28 23:03:02 -0500
The “free” tuition will expand in the future, to buy more votes. Such programs always do. after all, if you’re $1 over the limit for help, wouldn’t you be screaming your head off? And what Lefty could refuse?

One wonders just how “free” it is. If we took the amount of additional tax each of these students will pay for decades after school til the day they die, and compare it to simply paying for their education, which would actually be more? Has any of them thought to “do the math”?

Re the UK exit——if it suceeds ,can you imagine Trump and Nigal Farage beating on Trudeau and the UN. Canada has some hope after all. It is so disappointing that we have to rely on other Countries and their voters to squash the dummies that we elect.

Hey, all you guys out West, remember that the people of rural Ontario have much in common with you. The bad news is Toronto is driving the bus!

Ontario’s spending decisions to not affect its transfer amounts, except insofar as spending contributes to higher GDP and REDUCES the transfer payments.

Writer: Think about it. The entire premise of the article is faulty. Your anti-Ontarionism and anti-Wynne sentiment is hardly unexpected, but at least you could find something legitimate to complain about.
commented 2016-02-27 22:33:17 -0500
We out west already pay for their hairbrain schemes in the form of transfer payments.
commented 2016-02-27 22:18:47 -0500
The percentage of families with kids that have combined incomes under $50,000 is very low so this is not going to cost the government a whole lot. It is a smoke screen for all the other taxes we will be all be paying. Also those families with incomes under $50,000 will be hit with the sames higher prices for gas, home heating fuel and everything else that will rise because of the carbon tax so they will be no farther ahead. We will all be paying big time for past and future Liberal spending. The next 3 yrs are going to be rough.

Wynne has stolen a leaf from socialist Bernie Sanders playbook of promises, sucking the young into voting for a socialist.

Well, apparently you are Sam – get past it.

Dear god, is Brian still fixated on the stupid portrait of the queen?

This was a great week by Mr. Lilley. I have asked before and will ask again. Can Mr. Lilley host a Sunday magasine show?

Wynne is at it again, distracting the populace from Ontario’s sorry state and buying popularity with other peoples money. Free university tuition is intended to prop up her 29% approval rating.
commented 2016-02-27 16:05:41 -0500
No way to run a country like Canada
commented 2016-02-27 16:01:27 -0500
We can easily afford free tuition for the students if we put all the professors , administrators and staff at the Colleges and Universities on salaries equivalent to social assistance. These professors all believe in this Marxist redistribution crap so let’s equalize their pay and hours with the custodians and gardeners.
The REVEREND Martin Luther King’s words have taken on a new meaning to the millennial generation.
Free at Last
Free at Last.
Thank God Almighty
Everythings free at last.

Note: These secularist shifty bastards now refer to King as "Doctor "King rather than The Reverend King or The Reverend (Doctor) Martin Luther King. This is their way of removing religion from Kings message.

Aside from the snit fit of undoing anything the Conservatives have done is the fact that Lieberals consider themselves to be the only true “Canadians”, hence the rush to solidify their hold on the country! As for the rest of us…..well we’re just the peasants who are paying for the travesty!

I guess the local muzzies don’t realize the deviance of wynnies sexuality yet. inform them and watch her popularity disappear , perhaps even a short drop with a sudden stop…

Andrew – MOVE – and really fk Wynns plunder stream. Industry is doing that – just follow the jobs

Since Ontario became a kleptocratic hell hole, there will be a large economic refugee diaspora from this hollowed out province – the debt is so large now that your great grand children will be slaves to it and the only answer these klepto-commies have is to import more 3rd world labor to pay tax on the minimum wage jobs which proliferate a hollowed out economy.

Things will become critical soon when debt servicing charges go beyond their means and they start to raid investment assets, retirement funds and inheritance anything to float the debt – it will never be paid down. That debt (Largest of any political jurisdiction in North America) is like a huge shark devouring everything it sees to sustain it .

We shop in the US. – it’s still cheaper and it fks Wynne’s tax revenue stream.

Buy diesel cars – less gas cost and fks Wynne’s revenue stream.

Stop spending in Ontario and fk Wynne in the wallet. Wynne will continue to raise taxes until Ontario defaults – the sooner Ontario defaults, the better.

Never start a business in Ontario – well educated, lazy, entitled and low productivity workers with labor laws that will butcher your business.

And as far as Trudeau and his working over Canada goes, MI-6 in the UK knows of this and hopefully MI-6 will erase one or more of the Trudeaus as a message to stop fkg around.

The UK’s Brexit is going to be a tough battle – the trojan horses are already in the UK but does nobody see the EU as a pre-cursor to the UN’s Agenda 21 ? They’re going to fight Brexit with everything they’ve got and I think our Shiny Potty has already bought into Agenda 21 – everything he’s done so far has been to destroy Canada’s national identity and he will continue to whittle away.

Good times are coming
Buy your membership and help us kick some ass.
We are winning
At some point in our lives, we are forced to stand up for ourselves. For us in Alberta, that time is now! I urge you to go to our page www.albertansfirst.org and truly understand what we’re about. George Clark has not jumped ship (LOL for those that are wondering) and become NDP BUT thousands upon thousands of us have infiltrated their ranks and become NDP members (Trojan Horse premise) for ONE DOLLAR. The processing fees it costs them are crippling. We/You only have approximately a week to purchase your membership for this reason….. Notley has moved the 2016 convention up to June 10th as she knows for us to vote in a new leader, we need to be members for 90 days. Yep, we all threw up a little when we did it but we’ll be able to vote in a new leader of OUR choice. Sign the plebiscites, buy the NDP membership and join us at the Legislature on March 8th (buses are running from all over the province) and whine no longer! Let’s take back our province people!!! Go to our site and all info is there. Trevor Marr, Leah Hahn Tracy Osborne Chris Leinweber, Colin Douglas Gunn, Colleen McLeod, Carrissa Weber-Richards, Chris Flaman-Haley ……. I❤❤❤ALBERTA!!! DO YOU?

With Wynne’s free tuition will probably arise a few new choice programs. Windmills 101, Advanced Solar Panel Cleaning, Biofuel management (or as students will call Capture your Farts), Insider Liberal Trading Schemes ……

Hmmm. Trudeau insults the Queen just like dear old dad. Trudeau takes down the portrait of the Queen at Foreign Affairs which is rebranded Global Affairs. What is the next move for dumb dumb? Removing the oath to the Queen to appease new citizens? Banning the playing of God Save the Queen? Removing any mention of the Queen in our political history? Is this an effort to move away from the monarchy and pay our allegiance to the UN?

Whatever the reason for these actions I believe that it will not be what Canadians want. Trudeau really is a low life and that’s probably the nicest thing I can say about him.
commented 2016-02-26 23:20:11 -0500
The UK will leave the EU come summer and Nigal Farage will become the new PM come the next UK Election. If you have not seen him in action in the EU parliament, check the link….
….https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5jUavMXQrs….. Well worth the look.

As for the Queens picture. Trudeau’s Marxist leaders do not like the Queen and the thought of destroying a small piece of Canada’s heritage is pleasing to them Trudeau, of course, likes to keep his Québec friends happy. It is all about killing our national identity.
commented 2016-02-26 23:10:41 -0500
At least Cameron gave the citizens of the UK a democratic choice. In Canada we,are governed only by the Divine Right of Trudeau.
PS. Where did the Queens portrait end up? Knowing the Liberals I suggest that we start by looking in the washrooms!

Britain must regain its strength and dignity – desperately needed when European menace threatens its shores to do repeat the past (albeit different nemesis, different face).
Criticize the UK for its past – colonialsim, imperialism – yet successful are its former conquests with strong dictates in this modern world – having gained independence and have maintained British law and institutions. Can the French, the Belgians, the Dutch claim the same? Not!
For Britain to cave to the EU will be a repeat of history so unnecessary, and totally avoidable.

Great commentary and news all week Brian – loved the exposes on Wynn’s subterfuge we will see no where else; Best reason ever for the West to withhold transfers.

Wow. Thanks Justin’s Diary and such an honourable mention … I hope?? Being that I comment a lot, maybe tooo much, hope that I am on the good side of the Right side? You are my hero. You complete me! You maintain me, my sanity in this crazy parallel universe! Not to mention your eloquence, the spooning visuals of Beavis and Buttshead, leaves me breathless!!

“Why be so nasty about the Ontario budget item about post-secondary education funding!?
The rest of Canada has been paying for Quebec’s cheap day care program for years, so why not pay for Ontario’s new, cheap tuition program?!”

Spoken like a true socialist. Well done comrade.
