Party Platform

  • Provincially, we are focused on four key areas:
    1. Hydro
    2. Education
    3. Health
    4. Economy
  • Hydro:
    1. We are producing Hydro we don’t need and paying to get rid of it.
    2. We don’t need Darlington or the Wind and Solar Farms. We propose to cancel both the Darlington refurbishment plans and the Wind and Solar Farm Contracts.
    3. The Administration is overpaid and onerous, we propose to eliminate all waste and downsize considerably.
    4. We can buy all the Hydro we want from Quebec at $0.05 per kilowatt, on long-term contracts – this is what we intend to do.
  • Education:
    1. We intend to repeal the Sex-Ed Curriculum and a number of other Statutes.
    2. We intend to install a Curriculum that is designed by Teachers and Parents.
    3. We intend to put more accountability on Teacher and Parents, to ensure their students do better, and to work with them to ensure they have the necessary resources to succeed.
    4. We intend to make our Schools more accessible to the Community.
    5. We intend to have longer school days and longer school years and to have students graduate earlier.
    6. We intend to have a province-wide early years development program.
    7. More co-op programs will be included in the School Curriculum.
    8. Apprentice Teachers will be integrated into the School System.
    9. More programs – to allow students to develop better, will be included in the School System including Art, Music, and Physical Education.
    10. We intend to introduce legislation to ensure the Teacher’s Pension Fund is investing in Ontario First.
  • Health:
    1. The Health System is being abused, and our Party will introduce a user fee on an interim basis.
    2. More latitude will be given to Doctors to treat patients and extra bill.
    3. More regulation and accountability will be enacted to review Doctor Billings.
    4. A mediation system will be set up to fast-track issues and disputes with Doctors.
  • Economy:
    1. The Party will work with Unions to ensure that they are fully utilizing their ability to have and use Labor Sponsored Funds, and concurrently, invest in Ontario’s Economy.
    2. Union Pensions will be more accountable and invested in Ontario.
    3. The Corporate Tax Rate will be reduced to 6%.
    4. The Minimum Wage will be frozen, until such time as the Unemployment Rate decreases substantially.
    5. Companies making positions for more labor will be given Hydro subsidies for night shifts and labor and productions occurring during ‘off-peak periods’.
  • We have already researched the aforementioned areas substantially.
  • The Drumond Report remains a ‘go to guide’ for a substantial amount of the issues and concerns that face the residents of Ontario. It is by no means a ‘fix all’ solution to restore the Province to the ‘Province of Opportunity’ as it once was, but it is a helpful guide to analyze important economic matters, and a ‘good place to start’ when facing economic challenges and problems.
