The man who helped drive Ontario’s economy into the ground when he was premier — who was so unpopular his party went from first to third in the 1995 provincial election — has just received another appointment. Bob Rae is Canada’s new ambassador to the United Nations. Yes, the man who brought Ontario record debt and deficits, staggering unemployment and a welfare system with more than 1 million people on it the rolls has failed upwardly once again. Voters may have rejected Rae after one term as premier, Liberals rejected the former NDP leader as their own leader in 2006 but the Laurentian Elite can’t get enough of Bob. The people who perpetually run this country always look out for each other and Rae was literally born into the Laurentian Elite.
