Ghost Of 407's Past

For those of you who survived the Mike Harris years in Ontario, this story is nothing new. The government wants to sell buildings it owns and then lease them back from the private sector over a long term. It says it will save the government money. It says it can't afford to keep them up (didn't they just have a 13 billion dollar surplus?). The Mike Harris Tories said the same things about the 407 when they sold it off for a song. Ontarians got screwed over on that deal and it looks like the Harperites are getting ready to do the same thing with the people's buildings, across the country. Welcome to Mike Harris' Canada.
