>> now that they realize that this debt needs to be reigned in

Ontario's debt charges are expected to be 1.58% of GDP(2011-12). Prior to the Great Recession (2008-09), they were 1.46%.

In contrast, for 2000-01, debt charges were 2.47% of Ontario's GDP.

At the current rate of debt charge increase (2009-2012), it would take another 17 years to hit debt charges of 2.47%/GDP. If you throw in the fact that we will probably not be in recession/slow growth for the next 17 years, this makes the Ontarios's debt "crisis" even less worrisome.
