Miley Cyrus’s hit could be the theme song for our Ontario Premiere, Kathleen Wynne.  I just wrote in my last blog “I know that I’ve slammed politicians before, and I have no doubt that I will again…”.  I honestly didn’t think it would be so soon, but with what’s looming over us right now, it’s taking all I have just to keep my language civil!  What, you may ask, has me so riled up all of a sudden?  Taxes.  Yeah, I know, they’re as inevitable as death, but this one could be crippling, and felt across the entire province.

We all know this is an important decision.  And we all know that your home is most likely your single most valuable possession.  So why do so many people just go with the first agent they meet?  Or only ever call the listing agent?  (bad idea, btw).

Ontario Election 2014I hope I’m not writing this too late for some people.  I’m sure that you all know that in a few days it’s time to go to the voting booth again (well, those of you in Ontario…), but have you made up your mind on who you want to vote for?  Are you planning on going at all?  Before you place the X beside a candidate, consider your options (and you might have options you didn’t even know about!)

I think it’s time for reform. Pretty strong, I know, but honestly there has been little to no resistance from the good people of Ontario against the government with regards to how we’re being run. There are tons of policy issues I could get into, but what has a real bug in me right now is taxes.

Please don’t get me wrong…I have no issue paying taxes. It’s how a country is run, it’s how our streets are upkept, and provides schooling and education, health care, garbage removal, police systems, fire departments, and so on. All in all taxes are a mandatory part of a successful system. We need accountablility for that system!!

Here’s a novel idea. Lets figure out what we’re being taxed on, why, and what’s being done with that money that we’re providing to our government.  It’s the lies and deceit and broken promises and just general lack of forethought that bother me, and I’m sure it bothers most people. We just don’t do anything about it.
