Analysts warn house prices can’t keep climbing... Canadians are less optimistic on house prices... Rental crisis in BC... Ontario revenues fall forcing the use of reserves...

    If the Ontario Government is hoping for good financial news, why don't they privatize more things in order to deal a stronger hand to the Unions that keep their hands tied, otherwise. With government employees being unionized, and the old practice of having to spend their yearly budgets in Ministry projects (big push at the end of the year to use up all the allocated cash), this problem will never go away.

    While entrepreneurs and much of the private sector have no pensions nor health plans aside from OHIP, we keep funding government irresponsibility, lack of accountability and waste. Our Universities are now full of foreign students to help fund them.... making it more difficult for average students that have grown up here to gain admission. Shouldn't the government be doing something about that?

    The Ministry of Finance should account how much more money is being spend to pay Union fees, higher wages to non-performers, and redundant capital projects. Oh, and about that $1 billion power plant scandal... No one went to jail (in the private sector, there would have been serious accountability and penalization/jail sentences)!

    I keep wondering why government employees in the higher ranks, that control spending within their respective ministries and departments don't get bonuses or incentives to save money, and NOT use up their budgets. Oh yeah, because then there would be less reason to keep their underlings busy with building puzzles at their desks while they wait for another assignnment.
