Thursday is election day in Ontario, and if you listen carefully, you can hear a collective sigh of relief across the province.
Is it me, or has this felt like it has dragged on for months now, even years?
Are you any more qualified to make an educated decision whom to vote for than you were when this circus started?
Some are fine with the leader but not the party, others are fine with the party but not the leader.
The only thing Ontarians have been able to agree on is their disdain for Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals.
Perhaps the real key to this election is to understand why Wynne, who won the last contest with a majority, is now public enemy number one.
When you have the Auditor General, the Financial Accountability Officer, and even your own experts, telling a party your numbers don’t add up and you are heading for a train wreck, (as in the electricity file), it’s time to pull back and listen to the public’s concern.
It’s that arrogant ideology and lack of financial accountability that got the Liberals in trouble. It’s a “we’re smart, you’re stupid” mentality.

Here’s hoping the next premier will listen to what the average voter needs, instead of minority special interest groups and their own activist agendas.
See you at the polls!
