Dalton McGuinty has just announced that he will give $650 million to the auto industry to promote the development of greener cars.
By my calculation, assuming everyone was contributing equally (which they sure as hell are not), $50 of that is mine and I bloody well want it back!
The car companies are spending their own resources to develop green technology because it's what's going to generate more business for them and make them more money. I don't need the government handing them my money to try and drag them out of debt and help them be profitable.
I'd much rather have that $50 to buy another tank of gas!
It's interesting to note that when he was last elected, he ripped me off for hundreds of dollars because we apparently can't afford our overly generous health care system. Now he's giving money away to giant car corporations?
I've said it before and I'll say it again, anyone who votes for McGuinty's Ontario Liberals this time around has got to be just plain stupid. They've proven themselves to be just as trustworthy as the Federal Liberal party, and are only doing their part to help themselves to our money, while liberating us of whatever little bit of it we're currently allowed to keep and spend.
