The most obvious conclusion from the political theatre audit is that the Province should take more direct control of health and education spending

Be careful what you ask for, since you may be cursed with getting it. In particular, a big crack-down on health card fraud. I note that in 2006, Ontario's Auditor General found that there were 300,000 more health cards in circulation than the entire population of Ontario. A Google search does not turn up any follow-up, so I suspect that this may be a big Doug Ford initiative.

Of course, guess who will be disproportionately affect by a big insensitive crack-down on health card fraud? Precisely the people that Doug Ford hates anyway! Health care is the largest item of provincial government expenditure, at roughly half the entire provincial budget. There are huge dollars to be saved by legitimate, proper, sensitive investigation of health card fraud. But guess what Doug Ford will deliver?
