I love this new Ontario NDP ad

Give a raise to whoever is behind it.

    I saw this ad on YouTube earlier this week and thought it was better:


    Don’t know why I saw it though, I don’t even live in Ontario. Seems like YouTube could do a better job targeting audiences.

  2. Ronald O'Dowd says:


    Sticking with my prediction for an NDP government.

  3. Steve Teller says:

    Good to highlight the foibles of Wynne, but demonizing a public/private healthcare is just a typical lazy NDP tactic.

    The vast majority of developed countries (not the U.S.) have a combination public/private health system. That’s why the vast majority of developed countries (not the U.S) have better healthcare outcomes than Canada. Our ridiculous dogmatic approach to healthcare as a source of national “pride” needs to change if we ever are going to improve the system.

      Of course you are correct, but what we don’t need is an an ideological wrecking ball to fix it.

        As I explore Mental Health medical care in Watertown, New York for my oldest daughter because the best we can do right now is a 15 minute video conference call with an Ontario Health Care Psychiatrist I had a good laugh at your remark.
        Wreck it and rebuild it for all of us. 5 Tiers if you have to, but, fix it.

    • Peter says:

      The greatest obstacle to healthcare reform in both Canada and the USA is that each country is exclusively focused on the defects of the other system and ignores the many European variations that generally deliver better healthcare than both Canada (in terms of access, wait times and patient respect) and the States (in terms of universality, cost and affordability). American politicians will tell horror stories of life-threatening delays and dying unnoticed in waiting rooms in Canada while any discussion about reforming our healthcare gets immediately drowned out by shrill voices shouting about the heroic legacy of Tommy Douglas and warning about slippery slopes to unaffordable Yankee chaos. The truth is that both are flawed.

    Pretty good ad. The Liberals attempt at merging with the NDP by becoming the NDP is newsworthy, and, very smart.
    Its going to be interesting to see what both Left wing party’s do after this election. If, after 15 years of having a Liberal government the best the NDP can do is a distant second to the Tories then serious consideration must be made to merge.
    The numbers right now make it a fantasy to even consider the NDP as a serious contender, yes, a lot can change, but, its very doubtful.
