It’s a damn shame about what’s become of Oshawa. I tell ya, the NDP sure got a lot to answer for.
Ever since the cannibal holocaust of Bob Rae’s freaks an’ geeks totally destroyed this province we all knew that the time bomb called the GM plant was a-tickin’.
That it finally blew up under a Tory government is just one of the Good Lord’s tender mercies.
I hear that Dougie’s given all the workers his private cell number in case they need to vent about immigrants havin’ already stolen all the entry level service sector jobs.
And I wouldn’t be surprised if he slips a $20 in their Christmas cards, because that’s the kinda Premier he is. The for-the-people kind.
But like they say, the customer is always right. In this case that would be the nation of China.
Heck, if it wants to buy our manufacturin’ sector on the cheap then ring up the purchase, buddy, and don’t be such a Bolshevik about it.
Always be closing! Factories, storefronts: you name it.
I know it ain’t perfect but that’s the system we got, an’ there’s not a damn thing we could do to change that. So just put that outta yer head right now.
Of course the usual professional suspects are agitatin’ about how we shoulda got somethin’ for our bailout billions. That’s rich, comin’ from folks happy to throw my tax dollars at poor folks I don’t even know without so much as a by your leave.
Anyhow it’s not all doom an’ gloom. With a Ford in the big chair now you can be sure Oshawa’s in line for a subway station. And if it behaves itself, maybe even a Ferris wheel.
We all just gotta look on the bright side, and then head towards the light.
