|There is an absence of confidence in politics these days. Each new government budget offers a new austerity menu of what we cannot do, what we must cut and who must tighten their belts. This agenda, frantically pursued by so many western-world governments, continues to have devastating consequences for economies and citizens. Yet Ontario's political discourse today offers no alternative to this agenda, no attempt to define the common good or tap into what is best about the province -- our optimism, compassion and prudence. We hear too little from the voices of hope and reason so essential to building a fair and prosperous society.|
