Scarborough has voted wisely by re-electing the Liberals for another term in all the six ridings in the Oct. 6 provincial election.
A traditionally Liberal stronghold, Scarborough has benefitted under the Grits.
The Liberal campaign platform offers several key promises that Scarborough stands to benefit from. With a strong immigrant population, businesses in the community can take advantage of the $10,000 immigrant tax credit proposed in the Liberal campaign agenda.
Forbes Magazine recently ranked Canada as the best country in the world for business in part because of the introduction of the HST in Ontario and British Columbia. Forbes said Canada moved up four places from last year’s ranking because of an “improved tax credit.”
The government of Premier Dalton McGuinty has also taken the province from having the longest surgical wait times in the country to the shortest. Cancer survival rates in Ontario were also ranked among the best in the world. Let’s not forget Mike Harris’s Progressive Conservative government’s shoddy record with health care in the province.
It’s easy to see that we, as a province, are better off with McGuinty as our premier rather than PC Leader Tim Hudak.
Scarborough will continue to grow and prosper under the Liberals.
