Who, other than the propagandists in the mainstream media, like yourselves in the Toronto Star etc., who constantly write telling the electorate what they want or why they need a progressive council at City Hall?
Especially since that is what Toronto has been stuck with for far too long now!
Progressive, in today’s Ontario and world politics, means progressivism that is considered part of the left-liberalism tradition. A political movement that identifies as progressive is "a social or political movement, through big government actions at the expense of the free-market system and individual rights and freedoms.
For example, A progressive candidate’s philosophy is to ask, “what am I owed, “and “what must my city or country do for me” or “what has offended me today”.
While a true Conservative candidate on the other hand has a philosophy that asks, “what can I do for myself, my family, my community and my fellow citizens”.
Further for your political progressives, a variety of opinions and ideas are not welcomed, unless they are totally in line with the liberal socialist leftism political philosophies of big government from cradle to grave entitlements. And when it comes to choices, well, your progressive’s they attack free speech, and they also do not want “choices” to apply to any decisions on education, health care or even how and where we live out ones’ religious faith along with what one eats or drinks for that matter.
Progressive political candidates also stipulate that one political solution (“theirs”) fits all and Conservative candidates believe that the electorate and the citizens should have” choices” made and decided by them, not governments.
In summary, Conservative philosophy, NOT Progressive philosophy, is what Toronto City council urgently requires so that our conservative elected representatives of the electorate believe in individual rights, NOT special rights for this group or that group at the expense of the other groups, and allowing Scarborough to be Scarborough, and North York to be North York.
As Conservative candidates strongly believe that the electorate can vote with our feet about where one wants and what laws one wants to live under as opposed to being mandated for all by your progressive government types.
