Is there any doubt that we’re dealing with criminals here?
Here’s the pretty obvious connection of dots; the Ontario Working Families Coalition, a political action group composed of and funded by public sector unions (the teachers’ unions primarily) amongst others, spends millions of dollars during the Ontario provincial elections trashing the PC party… not the Liberals or NDP mind you, but just the Conservatives, since they are identified as the main threat to the pig trough. And the group, lo and behold, is headed by a member of the Liberal Party, Marcel Wieder, as he’s outed in this clip at about 17:40 – does everyone know but the public?
So essentially what we have here is a third party political action group that does the bidding of the Ontario Liberal party without having to conform to the rules and election finance constraints.
And so how do the unions manage to fund it so lavishly? Well, they get payouts from the Liberals. Unprecedented “outlier” payouts to the tune of $80 million dollars over the past 13 years.
They should be given full points for their ingenious deception and sleight of hand, much like the ORRP, the ‘privatization’ of Hydro One and all the other inventive ways they’ve found to keep money coming into the general coffers. And then those funds get funneled to the public sector unions, who then fund advertising campaigns to keep the same Liberals in power.
Isn’t this how it’s done in … say … Columbia? Nigeria? Thailand? You pick the third world country where we know that politicians are crooks, but we don’t expect or accept in Canada.
We can only surmise the motivation here and it’s two pronged; first, there are a lot of friends of the Ontario Liberal party that get well compensated by their schemes so there’s strong incentive to stay in power to keep that money flowing. Take as an example one Mike Crawley, ex-president of the Liberal Party of Canada, and ex-president of the Ontario Liberal party. Guess who owned a “green” energy company, International Power Canada, Inc. that was started after the Green Energy Act was passed while he was President of the Ontario Liberals? Care to guess how much his company made off of contracts to help build windmills in the province?
Then there’s the second motivation; they’re on the side of the angels. They must hold onto power at all costs, all methods justified, because heaven forbid they let power go to the heathen conservatives. They, the Ontario Liberals, are standard bearers for the four pillars of progressive thinking; the brotherhood of man, the triumph of learning and reason over faith and instinct, human life in deference to Gaia and social peace achieved through social equality. Who would oppose any of that? Only evil people. Only… conservatives. And thus, power must be maintained at all costs, the ends justify the means.
We are in a sad point in our province’s history. Instead of fixing the quite obvious economic and social problems we face, Ontarians are saddled with an activist government hell-bent on spending $7 billion on an environmental plan that would suffocate our province and on championing social engineering causes that are akin to shoveling sand into the tide.
