Who do you think was the better Premier? Now, I just graduate from high school a year ago and I still remember them teachers complaining about that evil bastard Mike Harris.

Bob Rae however gets points for softening the recession in the early 90s.

The only bad thing I think harris did was selling the 407. Dumb,dumb,dumb but that is forgiveable since he only made that one mistake (that i know of).

How so? All Rae did was try to spend his way out of a recession while purchasing peace from the unions with sweetheart contracts... much like McGuinty is doing again. The results are the same: the economy goes into the shitter...

Harris got us out of deficit and brought economic recovery after "Rae the Disaster"
Sounds like your teachers have their heads up their *sses.

I still think there were a couple of worse premiers in Canada coming from B.C. in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Raes government was not corrupt, they were just incompetent!

its a myth that has been created by liberals and the left that somehow mike harris was a horrible premier , he became unpopular in his final years in office but was not a horrible premier when you look at the facts . during his time in office

- the province was NOT losing thousands of jobs each month , when in fact it gained jobs under his watch , lots of jobs in fact
- the province was NOT at risk of becoming a have not province
- the province was NOT giving out big fact expensive contracts to unions
- the provincial government was NOT toronto centric

Harris was amazing and if can do it, maybe he should make a come back. Not as a premier but as someone to rebuild the party behind the scenes. He had the type of policies that attracted voters who just wanted a good economy.

He did, however, sell the 407. It was good for short-term expenses but I have to say that I'd use it as a money maker over time rather than just balancing the books for a few years. Also, the teacher union relationship was war-like at best. Its not his fault because Rae promised the union so much they we had no choice to but some of it to avoid provincial bankruptcy.

Ya, Mike Harris was kind of anti-union.

Wow, our public education system really has to take it easy on the kool aid. Bob Rae almost bankrupted Ontario. His deficit was the largest in the province's history...until yesterday.

Rusty, the 407 wouldn't have been built if he hadn't done that.

To my understanding it already was built and then he sold it. Also he could have just taken a loan and paid it off in 3 years through tolls.
