Ontario is “waiting for Drummond.”
And unlike Godot, the former federal finance department mandarin and chief economist for the TD Bank is going to show up. Soon. And when he does, all eyes in political Ontario will be upon his recommendations for how the government can spend more intelligently, and less, leading us eventually back to balanced budgets.
Drummond has been told by the McGuinty government that raising taxes isn’t an option for getting back to balance.
But that hasn’t stopped the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) from pushing him to expand the boundaries of his mandate. So, when CUPE officials met recently with Drummond, they came with an Angus Reid poll they commissioned and what CUPE believes are some findings worth considering.
