- Provincially, we are focused on four key areas:
- We are producing Hydro we don’t need and paying to get rid of it.
- 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.
- The Administration is overpaid and onerous, we propose to eliminate all waste and downsize considerably.
- 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.
- We intend to repeal the Sex-Ed Curriculum and a number of other Statutes.
- We intend to install a Curriculum that is designed by Teachers and Parents.
- 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.
- We intend to make our Schools more accessible to the Community.
- We intend to have longer school days and longer school years and to have students graduate earlier.
- We intend to have a province-wide early years development program.
- More co-op programs will be included in the School Curriculum.
- Apprentice Teachers will be integrated into the School System.
- More programs – to allow students to develop better, will be included in the School System including Art, Music, and Physical Education.
- We intend to introduce legislation to ensure the Teacher’s Pension Fund is investing in Ontario First.
- The Health System is being abused, and our Party will introduce a user fee on an interim basis.
- More latitude will be given to Doctors to treat patients and extra bill.
- More regulation and accountability will be enacted to review Doctor Billings.
- A mediation system will be set up to fast-track issues and disputes with Doctors.
- 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.
- Union Pensions will be more accountable and invested in Ontario.
- The Corporate Tax Rate will be reduced to 6%.
- The Minimum Wage will be frozen, until such time as the Unemployment Rate decreases substantially.
- 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.
