Have you see the latest Ontario Government commercial?
It’s supposed to be about Ontario’s 150th anniversary. Where is the credit for those who made it a great place for the past 150 years and made it a society capable of welcoming and accommodating all of these recent waves of immigration?
Where are the old people? Where’s the farmer from Owen Sound or Eastern Ontario?
You want to show immigrants? What about the immigrants from Italy, Poland, Yugoslavia, Scotland, Ireland, Greece, and Ukraine that came after World War II and built this province? Where’s the old Italian bricklayer or the Greek store owner? Where’s the autoworker in Windsor, the guy operating a snow plow in Timmins? I don’t see one Indian – half our doctors in this province. Not a single Jew, heaven forbid we show Jewish people in a government video. Evil Zionists, that wouldn’t go over too well with our leftist crowd.
The only white people in the video is a gay dude and his boyfriend and a teacher who has only one arm!
It’s such a blatant homage to politically correct multi-cultural feel-goodisms. I feel sick watching it knowing our tax money is paying for not only its creation but for it to get air on national networks in prime time. This from a government that is massively in debt, lagging in REAL infrastructure spending (sorry, day care spaces don’t count despite what the government says) and providing <1% economic growth per annum.
Where are the priorities? Is this what it has come to that our governments feel it’s their primary role to make us feel good about ourselves? Moral preening never put food on anyone’s table, built a single bridge or provided a bright future for our children.
I can’t wait to see the Ontario Liberals turfed. Trouble is I have no faith that Mr. I Had a Speech Impediment Oh Boo Hoo will do much differently as Premier. He’ll fall into the same trap a lot of Conservatives do – they’ll think they’re going to be the government for a nice long spell if they just play it cool when instead they should be in a hurry to burn 70% of the government machinery to the ground so when the Liberals or NDP do get back into power it’s just a charred ruin incapable of wasting our money.
