Sometimes I wonder if Kathleen Wynne isn’t actually the CPC’s secret weapon.
What is it with her over-the-top chicanery? Why is she campaigning so vigorously against Stephen Harper? Is it because he won’t do her bidding?
Negotiations between teachers unions and the Wynne government were at a standstill all summer, but suddenly now two news items emerge within days of each other:
Do the Liberals and the teachers’ unions think we are all that stupid and naive that we would buy into this negotiation charade (last Ontario election notwithstanding)?
So now Wynne is paving the way for the teacher unions to air ads and provide more worker bees and union dues for her boy to gain power.
But Wynne needs to be careful – and Justin should too. When even the Toronto Star becomes apprehensive about the meddling it might behoove the Liberal Premier to dial it down a bit.
Of course the real reason the Star spoke out now is because Wynne is starting to target Mulcair too. It used to be fine if only Stephen Harper was the object of her wrath. Perhaps Kathleen thinks she can control young Trudeau a lot easier than Tom, but the Star obviously wants to hedge its bets.
On the other hand, I’m not complaining. The more Canadians link Justin to Wynne, the more it helps the CPC.
Ontario with Wynne is a disaster – and let’s not even get into what’s happening in Alberta!
So yeah let’s ruin the whole country while we’re at it. Why not? In fact, maybe the teachers’ unions should run Parliament. They’re so smart. They’ve even got Wynne eating out of their hands. Who needs MPs and elected officials anyway? Let the Elite rule – just like in the olden days before democracy.
That is your choice Canada. Either the whole country goes down the toilet, or you can choose the party that will balance the craziness with some common sense.
Look to Ontario and pick your future.

This is a must-read editorial from the Waterloo Region Record –
Wynne should turn down the volume:
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne has embarked on an unprecedented word of wars with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who is leading the Conservative Party as it vies for the confidence of Canada’s voters after nine years in office.
Her hubris is astonishingly ill-advised, both for her own Liberal government and for the people of Ontario…
