Mike Harris The ace of spades of premiers

From CTV

“Three decades of evidence shows there is a close link between premiers’ party affiliation and what they achieve in office.”

The report shows small-c conservative premiers dominating the rankings, taking nine of the top 10 spots and two-thirds of the top 20, though every party has at least two premiers in the bottom 10 spots.

The report lauds Harris for running a lean government, with low revenue and spending levels, and slow growth in spending and public sector jobs, while knocking Marois for large budget deficits, a decline in private-sector jobs and declining business investment.

Glad to see the former Premier Mike Harris getting the recognition he deserves.
