It has been more than two years since an independent commission submitted its report to the Ontario government on the provinces poor public finances and high government debt.
Kathleen Wynne celebrated this week after winning the Ontario Liberal leadership and the premiers job. But now comes the hard part, finding a way to return Ontarios finances to a stable, sustainable path.
Part of the challenge facing Ms. Wynne is Ontarians indifference to the provinces deficits and debt. If the citizens of the province arent concerned about the over-spending, the deficits, and the accumulated debt that emerges from such spending, then we shouldnt be surprized to see politicians ducking hard decisions.
