医疗保障
HEALTH CARE :
 
安省进步保守党政府将投入19亿来建立一个全面的精神病医疗系统,这是加拿大省级政府有史以来最大的对治疗精神病的投资承诺。进步保守党政府将咨询医生和医疗保健专业人员,并要求他们参与未来医疗保健体系的改革。

A PC Provincial Government will commit $1.9 billion to build a comprehensive mental health system which is the largest mental health commitment in Canadian Provincial history. Doctors and health care professionals will be consulted and involved on future reforms to the health care system.
 
 
为了应对人口老化,进步保守党还将努力减少医院和急诊的等待时间。建立一个给低收入老年人治牙的福利方案。连续5年拨款添加1.5万张长期护理床位,10年内建立3万张长期护理床位。

In response to an aging population, efforts will also be made to reduce hospital and emergency wait times. A dental program will be created for low income seniors. Funding will be allocated to build 15,000 long term care beds in 5 years and 30,000 in 10 years.
 
教育
EDUCATION :
 
 
暂停关闭全省所有学校。把金融扫盲试点课程扩大到全省所有中学。下力气解决数学成绩下降的问题,把数学课程纳入正常教育轨道。将聘请老的教育人士总结安省优秀教师的教学方法,并把这种教学方法写进安省教育大纲中去。

A moratorium is to be placed on all school closures. A PC government will continue the expansion of the financial literacy pilot program into all secondary schools. The declining math scores will be tackled to bring them back on track. A task force of former teaching professionals will be appointed to learn from the province's best teachers to best inform future curriculum updates.

 
进步保守党的竞选纲领没有提及富有争议的性教育课程。自由党去年指控彭建邦在此问题上左右摇摆。许多少数族裔社区都期望进步保守党“取消”新的性教学大纲。显然,进步保守党将不会碰这个烫手的山芋。

There is no mention of the sex education controversy created last year when Patrick Brown was accused by the Liberals of flip-flopping. Many ethnic groups were expecting promises of “elimination” of the updated sex education curriculum. It is clear now that there will be no changes coming to this area.

 
环保
ENVIRONMENT :
 
进步保守党政府将投入5,000元清理五大湖区的污染,并采取行动防止向安省湖泊和河流倾倒污水。拨款2,000万元用于城市,郊区和城镇的当地公园的整新。这些都是环保举措,但拨款数额似乎不足完成这些工作。

A PC Government would commit $50 million to support the cleaning up of the Great Lakes and take action against dumping of sewage into Ontario's lakes and rivers. $20 million to be invested to upgrade local parks in cities, suburbs and towns. These are all environmental initiatives but the funding amounts appear to be inadequate to handle the tasks.

 
取消安省自由党政府现有的“上限和交易”的碳税政策,采用联邦政府的“联邦碳税补贴”计划。彭建邦克这么做避免在搞一个新的碳税计划,并使自由党省政府左右为难,因为他们不能公开批评自己的兄妹-联邦自由党的碳税政策。 

By dismantling the existing Liberal provincial government's “Cap and Trade” program and opting into the Federal Liberal government's “Federal Carbon Pricing Backstop” program, Mr. Brown avoids the creation of a new carbon tax program and also put the provincial liberal government into a difficult position since they cannot openly criticize the policies of their federal comrades.
 
 
安大略省进步保守党碳税的政策在党内已经争执了一年。许多人认为彭建邦在此问题上转了180度。彭建邦的新立场将给缺钱的安省带来收入,同时,如果在碳税上出了问题,进步保守党可以把皮球踢给联邦政府。同时,彭建邦对碳税的这一态度也可以吸引那些关注环保的年轻人加入进步保守党的阵营。这是彭建邦的政治智慧。

The implementation of a carbon tax by the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario has become a controversy within the party all year. Many viewed that as a reversal of Patrick's earlier stance. This adopted new tax will now bring in much needed revenues to the province while the Federal Government will get all the blame for any fallout. At the same time, environment supporting young voters are lured into the PC camp. This is a clever move by Patrick Brown.

 
碳税的目的是鼓励那些有碳排放行业寻求新的清洁能源。但是,大多数交碳税的企业或机构只是将此税视为经营成本,根本没有更换清洁能源的动力。加拿大仅占全球温室气体的2%,我们的碳税计划只是给政府多了一个捞钱的工具,没有任何实质效益,最终将以失败告终。

The intent of the carbon tax is to encourage carbon gas emitting  facilities and industries to seek alternate clean sources of energy. However, most of the carbon tax payers will simply view this as the cost of doing business and will have no incentives to change. Canada accounts for only 2% of the world's Green House Gas, and we are committing to a money grabbing and inefficient program that will ultimately prove to be a failure.
 

问责
ACCOUNTABILITY :
 
进步保守党为此提出了一系列的改革。从设立一个“信任,诚信和问责法案”开始,厅长们要设定目标成绩。采取措施堵住游说和政治筹款的漏洞。审计长将有权监督政府广告,以防止执政党利用政府广告为自己涂脂抹粉。

A series of reforms are proposed for this area. Starting with a “Trust, Integrity, and Accountability Act”, performance target are to be established for Ministers. Lobbying and fundraising loopholes are to be closed and the Auditor General will have the oversight of Government Advertising once again to prevent their uses for political gains.

 
这些政策听起来都不错,但我们必须看进步保守党上台后是否严格或有选择性地来执行这些政策。

These are all lofty policies that will have to be tested against loose interpretations and selective enforcement when implemented by the party  in power.

 
“向人民保证”的竞选纲领详细列出了选民需要关注的在各个领域里的各项重要政策。文件中就各项补充政策做了详述。该竞选纲领虽然有一些保守党自己想出来的宝贵政策,如将电力公司的红利回赠用户和接纳联邦碳税计划,其他的构思只是将现有政府政策或提案进行升级。

The “People's Guarantee” details major programs in each main areas of concern and identifies specific supplementary programs throughout the  rest of the document. While there are a few gems that stand out as PC ideas such as the return of Hydro dividends and adaption of the Federal Carbon tax program, the others are simply upgrades to existing Government programs or proposals.

 
下一次,我们会继续看看大多数媒体没有提到的、在“向人民保障”的竞选纲领中的其他一些个人选举承诺。

Next time, we will continue to look at some other individual election promises buried in the “People's Guarantee” not mentioned in most media
