Watch out for NDP

Last week’s promise by NDP Leader Thomas Mulclair really goes over the top.

Last week’s promise by NDP Leader Thomas Mulclair really goes over the top. Budget surpluses for the next four years, without knowing what the world economy, oil prices, or the situation in China, will do to the world?

He has already said he will raise corporate taxes by two per cent. Will that be enough to cover all of his other promises, too numerous to mention here? If not, and it is really doubtful, hang onto your pockets. There is only one other place to get the needed revenue. Just look in the mirror, because that is where it will come from.

Best give some real serious thought to where you place your X in the polling booth. Think NDP governments in B.C. in the 90s, Ontario under Bob Rae and what is happening in Alberta now.

Is that what we want for all of Canada? We are one of the most fortunate countries right now, the envy of most of the other world countries.

Let’s keep it that way.
