Kelly McParland: Desperate Wynne deploys her top bureaucrats to take on housing Kelly McParland I’ve been studying Ontario’s new Fair Housing Plan for several days now in an effort to discern the logic of the 16-point program that aims to bring housing costs under control.

  Kelly McParland: Ontario’s delusional Liberals set course for Clinton-style oblivion Kelly McParland There is a something going on within the Ontario Liberal party right now that carries a distinct aroma. It’s hard to put a finger on, but it bears more than a hint of Hillary Clinton. The Toronto Star, which lives to promote eternal Liberal rule, has been dropping heavy hints that Premier Kathleen Wynne ought to give some thought to retirement,
