The devil you know

Of course, dear conservative CBC, there's the fact that austerity doesn't work. As demonstrated indeed by Mike Harris 1, who closed financially solvent hospitals and sent hundreds of nurses away to find work in other provinces and countries: so that a decade later there was a grand shortage of nurses and the need to offer incentives to get them back.

There's still a hospital funding freeze on, because the Liberals are not the NDP. But neither are they this new breed (well, maybe 20 years isn't that new any more) of authoritarian inflexible Tories. And Mike Harris 2 is resigning. Good. Pray that the last state of the party is not worse than the first.
