Herewith, the Grit pros and cons.

PRO

  • eliminates the PC’s huge financial advantage
  • capitalizes on post-budget bounce

  • recognizes that things could get worse the longer they wait

CON

  • we could lose – badly

    I notice the Liberals have been coming out with tons of policies, while the Conseratives still have none. Catching Brown before he can establish himself is a strategy and policies that might work. Things can change rapidly in an election.

      That’s because the PC’s policy convention isn’t taking place until November.

      And all the Liberal policies have massive price tags attached to them.

      Just yesterday it was revealed the Hydro One is going to the Energy Bord requesting pretty big rate increases for the next 5 years, higher than the Liberals promised of limited increases to the rate of inflation.

    lol, the best reason to go now? Make it STOP. Pretty soon we will be getting a new Prius in every driveway, inflatable beach toys, minimum incomes, and will save every whale in Ontario, twice. I am jesting, but only halfway tongue in cheek. When the jig is up, please do not spend every last penny saving every Ontario whale twice.

    GTA housing is very likely to be in the depths of a bear market by next June. This is likely a consideration for the Liberals.
