OK, I don't really know how well this thread is going to go over... I don't really know if there are a lot of people from Ontario who post here, and it probably won't be of very much interest to those outside Ontario. But I am genuinely curious, so I guess we'll see where it goes. Confession time: I like Kathleen Wynne. A lot. However, she has an abysmally low approval rating: 20% is the last number I heard, which is the lowest among all the provincial premiers. However, there is also a lot of evidence out there that Ontarians like Wynne's policies, they just don't like Wynne herself. So much so that the Progressive Conservatives under Patrick Brown pretty much adopted Wynne's platform wholesale as their own... before Brown was forced to resign for sexual impropriety, and the PC leadership candidates all pretty much set aside the so-called People's Guarantee. (We'll set aside for the moment the question as to why voters would vote against policies they like because they're implemented by someone they don't like. I would think that the actual legislation would have more affect on individuals' lives than the premier's personality or whatever, but anyway...) So why is Wynne so unpopular? Sure, there are going to be PC supporters who dislike her because she's a Liberal. That's pretty much a given. And of course, there is a certain segment who will dislike her because she is a woman, or because she is our first openly LGBT premier; I'm sure we've all seen the misogynistic and homophobic comments online. But I'd like to think that's just a small but noisy group. So I'm wondering more about why centrist or left-leaning people, who might ordinarily vote Liberal, don't like her? This columnist suggests the reason is her sale of Hydro One. I admit that I didn't agree with that decision either... but it's one thing out of many other good things. Could it really be this one issue? I wouldn't have thought one thing would be enough to cause this much damage. I was deeply disappointed in Trudeau's abandonment of electoral reform, but I'm not suddenly going to turn to Scheer because of it! (Although my understanding is there are still Westerners who detest Trudeau Sr. over the National Energy Program--and that was almost 40 years ago! So I guess it's possible...) Just wondering if anyone else had any thoughts or insight about this?
