Live with Sylvia Jones!

Dufferin-Caledon Ontario PC candidate Sylvia Jones is laying out her platform for election. Let's look at some points! Oh boy!

Apparently, the Tory government would provide more health care money to communities with "fast growing" populations like Dufferin-Caledon. Orangeville, for one, has an annual population growth of about 2 percent. Fast-growing, indeed.

She is also proud to be running in Dufferin-Caledon with John Tory. Funny she should say that, considering John Tory ran in this riding in the last provincial election (and won in a landslide) and quickly stated he would be running in a Toronto riding in the next election (which he is in Don Valley West).

She pointed out that the McGuinty government spends recklessly because of their denial of a $150,000 grant to a cricket club. This after her closing speech in the debates in which she quite noticeably sneered when she mentioned the McGuinty government's approval of the grant.

And, finally, faith-based schools. After all, it's all about fairness and equality. Why should only some schools suffer under another regressive Tory education policy? Everyone should be allowed to spend weeks without going to class due to strikes, and have to share textbooks. It's only fair. Leadership and fairness matters.

For the record, for those of you on the fence, just because "Leadership matters" does not mean you should elect the person with that slogan. There have been a lot of dudes that showed great leadership; some of them didn't work out so well.

So, while Sylvia Jones will probably win this riding (please God, Dufferin-Caledon college students, come home October 10 and vote!), John Tory might not even win his, so this could all be a moot point. Of course...there was something about John Tory and a parachute once before...

And that was this week's episode of Live With Sylvia Jones!
