The post-Stephen Harper Canada is becoming increasingly unrecognizable. The current provincial election in Ontario is an example of why Canada is sinking fast. Since 2003, the Ontario Liberal Party has run the province into the ground with massive deficits. Instead of learning from the mistakes of the past, the people of Ontario could actually elect someone who is to the left of the incompetent Premier Kathleen Wynne. The dreadful Ontario New Democratic Party, which is led by Andrea Horwath, is now the front runner in Ontario’s provincial election. The NDP is notoriously hostile to Israel, in their attempts to appease Muslim voters. Just last week, a Muslim NDP candidate was caught praising Adolf Hitler on social media.
The Progressive Conservative Party candidate, Doug Ford, began his campaign with a significant lead. The election was his to lose. Unfortunately, Doug Ford decided to play “prevent defense,” and squandered a once-sizeable lead to the intensely socialist and anti-Semitic NDP. Doug Ford should have stayed on offence to secure the win, knowing that the news media in Ontario would not treat him fairly. Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” should be required reading for any Conservative politician who is serious about winning.

The good news for the Ontario NDP is all signs show them pulling into the lead ahead of the June 7 election.
The bad news: their opponents and the media now have the microscopes out to vet NDP candidates for problems, and they’re finding some doozies.
Here’s a few of the more notable cases — and, because no party’s immune to candidate controversies, some of the embarrassing revelations dogging the Liberals and Progressive Conservatives, too.
The Hitler meme
As a general rule, any time someone running for public office has to clarify that they don’t support Adolf Hitler, it’s not going well.
The Ontario PCs held a news conference on Friday to point out a strange 2013 Facebook post from Tasleem Riaz, the NDP candidate in Scarborough-Agincourt. It appears to be a motivational quote from Hitler: “If you don’t like a rule…just follow it…reach on top…and change the rule,” the meme quotes Hitler saying, along with a photo of him giving the Nazi salute….
