Incompetent Politicians Should Be Held Accountable

incompetent governmentToday I’m taking a bit of a break.  Not because there aren’t any more political boondoggles to cartoon about, but because there are days when it feels like every day is a political Ground Hog Day.

We all know that when bad decisions are made by politicians, taxpayers get stuffed with the bill. We also know that nepotism, cronyism abounds and politicians think nothing of handing out contracts to foreign companies while their own citizens get the shaft. One truly has to wonder if and how much “secret” money is being exchanged in those deals.

Some days it would be all to easy to produce an obscenity riddled rant about just how bad this Wynne government truly is.  I know when that feels like the only thing I want to write or cartoon, it is time for a little detour.

As both the NDP and Progressive Conservatives in Ontario look for ways to defeat the Liberals in the next election, I certainly hope that they consider including an accountability bill for politicians who made decisions that are clearly contrary to the public good.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to hold some of the politicians personally and financially accountable for the pillage of the province because of their incompetence?

One can wish.
