On June 7, Ontarians will elect a new legislature at Queen’s Park. Recent polling suggests that the Progressive Conservatives could receive 44 per cent of the vote, the Liberals 26 per cent, the NDP 23 per cent, and other parties combined seven per cent. If so, the PCs would form a government and the Liberals would be the Official Opposition — swapping their current positions.
… With the PCs likely to run on a “save taxpayer money” message, with the pilot costing $50 million a year, and with the misguided notion that it is but a “crazy experiment” in “paying some people tens of thousands of dollars not to work,” the pilot may be at notable risk should the PCs prevail at the polls.
