Russ Campbellâ€™s Blog: IPSOS Poll: Hudakâ€™s Prospects Improve
A new IpÂsos Reid poll conÂducted for CTV News and CP24 shows the deÂsire for change in OnÂtarioâ€™s govÂernÂment is strengthÂenÂing and that Tim HuÂdakâ€™s imÂage has imÂproved.
This is good news for those who beÂlieve the McGuinty-Wynne govÂernÂment has set this province on a path to ecoÂnomic ruin with a free-spendÂing budÂget and a debt-load that prompted the LibÂerÂalsâ€™ own forÂmer fiÂnance minÂisÂter, Dwight DunÂcan, to warn OnÂtarioâ€™s inÂterÂest payÂments on its debt â€śare a tickÂing time bomb.â€ť
DunÂcan made this asÂsessÂment in JanÂuÂary 2013 and guess what? The deficit for the upÂcomÂing year is proÂjected to be higher than last. Thatâ€™s two years in a row that the budÂget shortÂfall has inÂcreased and the Grits are withÂout a beÂlievÂable fisÂcal plan that will see the budÂget balÂanced in the foreÂseeÂable fuÂture.
