I have been disappointed by the lack of true vision for our future by the parties in the Ontario election. As feared when the McGuinty Government fixed election dates we have had a summer of dribs and drabs of ideas but no overall plan of how to prepare Ontario for the changes we are undergoing economically or environmentally. For example the northern boreal forests which are a great carbon sink in Ontario continue to be cut despite McGuinty’s promise in the last election not to expand the cut area without a plan. If we do not save these forests we will not only lose a carbon sink but also further endanger the wildlife, such as, the woodland caribou and millions of song birds. I hope we get a concret view of the parties vision of how to trasform Ontario in the up coming debate.
