Andrea Horwath accuses Kathleen Wynne of talking out of both sides of her mouth? What rich hypocrisy.

While giving lip service to LRT, Ms. Horwath has consistently opposed all provincial taxes to pay for it and the rest of The Big Move. Perhaps on the theory that it will be constructed by magic fairies and unicorns that work for free?

Before the recent election, Ms. Horwath was leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition in a minority parliament. She had the clout to push through, for example, the tax increases endorsed by Ontario’s Chamber of Commerce to pay for The Big Move.

But she chose to demonstrate that she is more right-wing that Ontario’s Chamber of Commerce by killing ALL proposed revenue tools to finance Hamilton’s LRT and the rest of The Big Move. In the real world that myself and other grown-up adults live in, good things cost money and have to be paid for by taxes. Something that the Ontario Chamber of Commerce understands by endorsing tax increases to pay for The Big Move. They are able to think like adults. Too bad Andrea Horwath cannot.

By giving lip service to LRT and The Big Move, but opposing all taxes to pay for them Andrea Horwath demonstrates not just gross hypocrisy but gross immaturity.
