Where much of the steel production in Hamilton is being closed down. Where steel production is a strategic resource important not only for our national security but also our future as an industrial nation. Where every industrial job held in Canada supports 7 other occupations in the province. Be it resolved that the provincial government work with the federal government to nationalize, expand, and modernize Hamilton's ...more »
The Liberal Party of Ontario should promote legislation which would empower municipalities with more revenue generating tools which will allow them not only to address substantial infrastructure deficits but also do so in a more progressive fashion than purely relying upon property taxes.
Where poor Ontarian's do not currently receive a tax rebate for their contributions to political parties when their taxes do not exceed the basic limit, naturally fewer underprivileged Ontarian's contribute thereby biasing political parties towards wealthier members of society. Therefore, in the interest of justice, all Ontarian's should receive an equal credit for their contributions to political parties regardless ...more »
Where private industry has failed to provide these services at a reasonable rate and honor their obligations in an honest fashion, I encourage the Liberal Party to transform all forms of personal insurance into non-profit public institutions.
The Liberal Party of Ontario should commit to removing the HST from all essential utility bills (i.e. water, sewage, electricity, perhaps even internet). In rental units, these savings ideally would be either split or passed down to the renter in full as a reduction in monthly rent.

For example, making it possible for individuals to offer monetary benefits and/or shares as incentives to invest in their ideas.

Stop bribing corporations with money grants, tax breaks, or other favorable treatment that are increasingly making Ontario a crony capitalist province. Yes we should promote R&D and encourage the development of new and innovative industries, but provincial money should not be used to subsidize industry in Ontario especially with no strings attached. This has to end.
I believe that positive discrimination is a fundamentally illiberal policy that undermines our support for equal opportunity and equality under the law. Their are other ways to ensure people are treated justly in our society which are far less destructive, divisive, and polarizing.
Wynne may try, but it is indefensible to offer a 7 million dollar bonus package for Pan Am organizers. This is wasted money for a games few in Ontario will watch or benefit from.
Ontario should commit substantial resources to the promotion of robotics manufacturing in Ontario before the market takes flight and leaves us behind. Tie the program to Ontario Universities just as RIM was linked to the University of Waterloo.
In light of Ontario's fiscal constraints, the Liberal Party of Ontario should move in the house for a voluntary reduction of MPP wages and pension reform.
I had to drive my wife to and from work with our infant son in the back for two years, increasing traffic congestion, all because my wife was not allowed to drive alone to her job. Total nonsense.
