As I have been reading and watching the interviews with Andrea Horwath, leader of the NDP in Ontario, the more I have come to realize, that she is the catastrophe waiting to happen for this province.
With a platform that she claims that only NDP has but that makes no sense, and with a huge marginal error on the deficit, one can’t help but wonder how she’s going to run our province and our lives when she fails miserably at simple math with the ‘expert’s help.
And I am not talking about just the platform. I’ll give you an easier example.
During an interview with CBC after the Ghomeshi trial, Andrea claimed that 1 in 4 women in Canada is sexually assaulted, and only 10% come forward.
If those numbers are true, that’s horrifying because it gives us a number of 4,625,050 women, 25% of women population being sexually harassed in Canada with a population of 33 million approx., and comparing to an approximate 162,000 of such cases in India with a population of approximately 1. 32 billion, 40 times bigger than that of Canada.
Dear God, We are living in a monstrous society.
But still the numbers do not add up since she claims that only 10% come forward. That makes a total of 462,505 women. According to Statistic Canada there were 37,000 self reported sexual assaults against women and 5,000 against men in 2014. Even if we add both numbers together is way far but what Andrea is claiming.
How does she know about the other 90%? Is there some kind off app that we as a society are unaware of where the 90% share their stories? Isn’t that called coming forward?
Coming up with such numbers will surely win some extra votes.
But apart from these minor miscalculations lets give a small prediction of what might happen if Andrea Horwath wins the June election.
1 – NDP wins a minority government – Andrea will have to look for a collision to form a government. And the only one she will make a collision is with the Liberals and if necessary with the Greens.
So that means that Kathleen Wynne or the Liberals, if Kathleen resigns, will still be running this province, but this time with a puppet controlled behind the screen. Why? Well simply put the Liberals will not support Andrea if she doesn’t agree to their terms.
2 – NDP wins a majority. From a socialist province we will be tagged as a communist province, as Andrea will be pushing forward her own agenda first which from my calculations one of them will be changes in the justice system and most likely family law. She was quite clear on that during her interview after the Ghomeshi trial. The presumption of innocence and burden of proof are not her favorite words and they do not apply only to men.
Her strong feelings about men was mirrored also in an interview with the city tv after Patrick Brown resigned as PC party leader over the allegations of sexual harassment to which he denied, but Andrea sounded sure.
And yet no statement or comments was done by her when Christine Moore, a NDP MP, was facing allegations of similar nature towards an Afghanistan war veteran.
But let’s get back to the calculation part. With a majority, Andrea will place more taxes on the corporations, or as she puts it ‘to chip in’, to cover the extravagant expenses for her programs. Well in a real scenario every business that is threaten loss of venue and profit will look for other options and most likely move out of the province. That will result in loss of taxes and jobs.
What Andrea does not understand, is that businesses are created to make profit and not to chip in for political parties agendas, or to take care of the people when the government fails to do so.
With a gigantic deficit that Ontario has, Andrea says that will only add 3.3 billion in the first year.
Sorry that will be 4.7 billion due to some miscalculations in her part. It’s nothing big don’t overeact. And that is only if her calculations are right so far. I’m not sure if that amount of deficit covers the interest of the debt the Ontarions have to pay as well.
In Ontario, the province expects to spend approx $11.4 billion servicing its debt. When we combine Ontario’s debt servicing costs with the province’s share of federal debt servicing costs, Ontario taxpayers are responsible for a total of $21.2 billion in federal-provincial interest payments.
And as Andrea adds more to the debt, the more the interest’s amount will be.
The more I look at the numbers the more I see a Kathleen 2.0 upgrade in Andrea.
But let’s take another look of who else might be joining her in parliament.
Tasleem Riaz, the NDP candidate in Scarborough-Agincourt. It appears to be a motivational quote from Hitler: “If you don’t like a rule…just follow it…reach on top…and change the rule,” the meme quotes Hitler saying, along with a photo of him giving the Nazi salute.
It sounds as she is giving a motivational speech to Andrea, quoting Adolf Hitler. Wrong example, especially the part with a picture where Hitler is in full Nazi salute on his marching troops on the way to invade the world and commit atrocities.
What was she thinking?
Riaz quickly put out a statement saying she doesn’t recall posting it and is “horrified” to see it on her page.
“In every way, I find Hitler, the hate he spewed, and the genocide he committed to be abhorrent,” she said.
Yes somehow the meme found itself on her Facebook page. Or she might have been too drunk to remember posting it.
But that is not all.
On a another post in 2011 Tasleem posted: ” … Troops to stay in Afghanistan for 3 more years to keep slaughtering machine active and slaughter innocent men, women and children…”
It seems that Tasleem thinks highly of the Nazi troops but not on our Canadian armed forces.
Andrea Horwath stood by Tasleem when asked about the meme. “…I find it pretty unbelievable that she would be in any way implicated in anything that is all anti-Semitic”
But let’s not stop there.
Etobicoke Centre NDP candidate Erica Kelly, who posted that she would not be sad if “gun nuts” were blown up by a drone, has now apologized for the comment.
“I know this is horrible to say… but I would not be sad to see these gun nuts threatening civil war have their asses blown to f–k with a drone,” Kelly said. “I mean, really, if only just to see their ‘tyranical government’ 2nd amendment argument blown to smithereens.”
“I know that’s horrible to say, but it they don’t care about kids lives being lost with the way things are there now…. I don’t really care about them either.”
“The U.S. mass shootings in Parkland, Fla., Sandy Hook, Conn. and Las Vegas, Nev., caused heartache and anger for me, like for countless others,” Kelly said.
“In the heat of the moment, in a personal conversation with a friend, I lashed out about extremist Americans who advocate starting a civil war to achieve their political objectives. I was wrong to take the bait. My comments do not reflect how I live my life and how I treat others. For that, I offer my unreserved apology.”
Erica admitted that the comment was in the heat of the moment. But what would she do when in power “in the heat of the moment”? How many people’s lives would be affected from her future heat of the moment?
But why stop here?
Mississauga Centre NDP candidate Laura Kaminker caused a ruckus over a 2014 Facebook post where she declares her opposition to wearing the red poppy on Remembrance Day.
“I just wear my peace button on my jacket as always and wait for the collective brainwashing to blow over,” her post said. “When our masters give the signal, everyone can take off the fake poppy — made with prison labour — and create a bit more landfill. And another annual ritual of war glorification comes to a close.”
The opposition parties howled in protest that it was an insult to Canadian veterans, but NDP leader Andrea Horwath defended her candidate’s right to hold the view.
“Those are certainly not values I share, but freedom of speech is a principle that we all, I think, value,” Horwath said.
Do you think we’re done? Oh no.
Glen Archer, a corrections officer running for the NDP in Kenora-Rainy River, apologized after 2015 Facebook posts were found where he said about Premier Kathleen Wynne: “Blowing taxpayer money like crazy putting in the pockets of her friends, Scandal after scandal. She should be in prison. Resign at last!”
His favourite quote was also listed on his Facebook page as “If I wanted your opinion, I’d beat it out of you!” He told CBC it was a quote from a movie and called it “corrections humour.”
Both posts have been taken down, and Archer apologized for his choice of words.
Kathleen Wynne has been looking in the wrong opposition caucus to find bullies.
With Andrea Horwath as a Premier and such a team that she has, we Ontarians, will forget who Bob Rae was.
