McGuinty Pork Barrelling

Ontario education minister Gerard Kennedy is in Ottawa today to announce funding for rural schools.

Is it a coincidence that there is also a by-election in the very same constituency that is receiving the cash?

Funny how the money flows during election times eh - Premier McGuinty must be taking notes from Paul Martin who went on some of the largest pre-election spending binges in Canadian history.

In the past politicians would throw salt pork at voters in a shameless attempt to gain their votes. Today's public officials are content to using tax dollars as their pork barrelling weapon of choice.

Trying to buy your vote with your own money. Your Tax Dollars at Work.

This is the same bunch of extortionists that are stealing 2,000 dollars a year more from my family to fix health care. Is it fixed yet? Um no.
