“Why Delay, Say Goodbye Today!” Billboard Debuts in Downtown Toronto
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (June 13, 2017 - TORONTO)
The National Citizens Coalition is counting down the days until the next election in Ontario, when voters can finally oust the most unpopular Premier in the province’s history, Kathleen Wynne.
“There is now one year left for the Ontario Liberals until election day next June, but if Premier Wynne has any respect for taxpayers she will call an election right away,” says Peter Coleman, President and CEO of the National Citizens Coalition. “Why delay? Say goodbye today.”
With an approval rating of only 12% it is clear that Kathleen Wynne has lost the faith of the public and her mandate to continue as Premier is in question.
“The NCC has launched a billboard campaign drawing attention to Kathleen Wynne’s many failures as a leader and the urgent need for change in Ontario,” adds Coleman. “Hard-working taxpayers simply cannot afford twelve more months of wasteful spending and incompetent leadership.”
Introduced earlier this spring, the Wynne Liberals’ 2017 budget has been widely criticized for failing to provide an economic blueprint for Ontario. Provincial debt is expected to reach a record $312-billion this year, requiring annual debt service costs of $12-billion.
“This government has stumbled from scandal to scandal for the past decade, and in that time has utterly failed to provide oversight of the most essential portfolios and agencies,” continues Coleman. “Instead, this government is squandering billions of dollars in interest payments that are crowding out the essential services that Ontarians actually rely on.”
The Wynne Liberals have been unable to increase their approval ratings despite expensive new programs designed to attract support. Most recently, it has been revealed that Kathleen Wynne’s promised rebate to hydro prices will actually cost taxpayers $45-billion over the life of the plan.
“This is the type of shortsighted leadership that is threatening to drive Ontario’s economy into the ground. Premier Wynne is piling on the debt just to make it look like the Liberals have a plan. That is not a plan, it is a recipe for structural deficit and taxpayers are tired of these wasteful games. Premier Wynne, why delay? Say goodbye today.”
