Take a look at this graph and notice how child poverty fell during the tenure of Mike Harris (at least until he cranked up spending after 2000). Even though he reduced the role of government in the economy, which lefties deem as being bad, the results were positive. In contrast, Bob Rae talked about helping people, but actually hurt them.

If anyone wants the downtown to be a more prosperous place, the recipe is less government spending, not more. Think of it this way, you can either settle for government scraps or you can have opportunities to create a future. You can't have both.
