Drummond got it wrong. Indeed, while MPPs are literally debating his proposed cuts right now, they should be considering a different type of cut: to Ontario’s long list of barriers to job creation and economic growth… Drummond dismisses any hope of robust growth, claiming that the province can’t beat 2% annually in the coming years… It’s true that Ontario wastes billions, but cuts alone won’t save it… Ontario needs a systematic attack on job-killing labour laws, time-consuming approval processes, and overly strict regulations.

We must emphasize health, and not just health care… There is a role for the private sector in health-care delivery… People need to pay more directly for their health care… Canada has first-rate physicians and nurses – but a second-rate health-care system. Canadians deserve first-rate care capacity, first-rate health prevention and first-rate technology. And enough physicians and nurses to deliver it to our patients. And that is the system we deserve.
