主流媒体没有报道安大略省保守党党魁彭建邦在“向人民保证”的竞选纲领中那些看似不重要,但明确的执政承诺。这些承诺可以衡量和量化,安省选民可以轻而易举地对这些承诺是否兑现进行监督。下面我就来介绍一下这些与你日常生活息息相关的承诺:

Many of the very small and explicit promises announced in the “People's Guarantee” by the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario leader Patrick Brown are not reported by main stream media. These promises are either measurable or quantifiable and should be easily monitored by Ontario citizens. I have now researched and identified some of the more relevant ones below:

 
1)以理性的方式在四年内逐步将最低工资每小时14元提高到15元。这么做更明智,可以让许多可能失业的人不丢掉工作。最低工资将从2018年1月1日的11.60元/小时上涨到14元/小时(涨幅超过20%),这是不可逆转的政策,可能会导致许多工作岗位消失。如果自由党赢得明年大选,他们将在2019年1月1日升到最低小时工资提到15元,并再次对就业市场产生负面影响。

1) To raise the minimum wage $14 to $15 an hour in a responsible manner, phasing it in over 4 years - This action will be more sensible and save many potential job losses in Ontario. The minimum wage will go to $14 from $11.60 on January 1, 2018  (an increase of over 20%) and it is irreversible, likely costing many jobs to disappear. Under another Liberal government, it is scheduled to rise to $15 on January 1, 2019 and impacting the job market again negatively.

 
2)驾驶执照和车辆登记费两年内不涨价,同时允许人们延长登记时间来节省更多费用。自2013年以来,考驾照的费用上涨了133%,车辆登记费上涨了33%,为120元/年。这些政策无疑每年会让安省居民省下一笔钱。

2) Freeze fees on driver's licenses and vehicle registration for 2 years and allow them to be renewed for longer periods to save more money - Since 2013, driver examination fees have gone up 133% while vehicle renewal sticker fees have risen 33% to $120 a year. These changes will save Ontarians some money every year.
 

3)允许中医执照书面考试以中文进行。目前要拥有中医执业执照,自由党政府要求考试英文或法文进行,而不是大多数中医和病人所使用的中文。这应该有助于加快中医活动执照的过程,增加中医从业人员的数量。

3) Allow Traditional Chinese Medicine licensing exams to be written in commonly accepted Chinese languages - To become a licensed practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the province requires the applicants to pass an exam that is only available in English or French and not in Chinese languages which are commonly the preferred languages of practitioners and patients. This should facilitate and speed up the process to increase the number of practitioners within the system.

 
4)立即取消安大略轮胎管理机构收取的“环保”税,并尽快关闭该机构。这个政策始于2009年,人们在购买轮胎时必须支付4.25元的“环保费”。这个由自由党政府指定的回收安大略废旧轮胎的私人机构花费大量的金钱让自由党品酒、上高档餐馆,游船,住豪华酒店。同时还向安大略自由党的捐款。

4) Eliminate the “eco” taxes charged by the Ontario Tire Stewardship immediately and shut down this agency as soon as possible - The program began in 2009 and  each consumer pays $4.25 as an “eco fee” when a tire is purchased. The private agency designated by the Liberal government to recycle Ontario’s used tires has spent thousands on wine tastings, fine dining, a boat cruise, luxury hotels, and donations to the Liberal Party of Ontario.

 
5)确保狩猎和捕鱼许可证所收费用专款专用,而会被政府行政挪用。这个所谓的特殊用途帐户(SPA)最初于2005年设立,理论上是将牌照费用于改善狩猎和垂钓活动。但事与愿违,省府将所收的费用中的每年超过7000万用来支持从事鱼类和野生动物管理活动的工作人员的工资和福利。这个问题在2016年被揭露,起因是安大略省西南部社区组织申请保护当地野生动物项目资金时,发现钱被挪用了。

5) Ensure hunting and fishing license fees are spent on dedicated purposes and not going into administrative benefits - The so-called special purpose account (SPA) was originally set up in 2005, with the money to be spent on programs to improve hunting and angling in the province. As it turned out, the over $70 million a year from an Ontario fund specifically designated for angling and hunting was used to support staff salaries and benefits for staff performing fish and wildlife management activities. This was first discovered in 2016 when no funding can be provided for local wildlife projects requested by a Southwestern Ontario community group.

 
6)人们可以上网更新驾驶执照和健康卡。去省府办公室更新健康卡可能是一个烦人的和耗时的活动。搞一个上网项目就可以解决此问题。

6) Renewal of driver's licence and health cards to be done on line. Going to a Service Ontario location to renew health cards can be an annoying and time-consuming activity. An online portal will be created to deal with this issue.

 
7)规定校车必须配备车外摄像系统,以防止校车打信号停车上下学生后有车辆非法超车。这些行为是非法的,危及学生的安全。安装公共和私立校车服务的经营者安装系统成本将从违规者的罚款中报销。

7) Making exterior school bus camera systems mandatory to prevent drivers from illegally driving by stopped and signalling school bus - These acts are illegal and endanger student safety. Operators for public and private school bus services shall have their costs offset against revenues from fines collected from law-breaking drives.
 

8)任命一个工作组,研究家庭医生和专科医生不足问题。没有家庭医生仍然是许多安省百姓所面临的问题,尤其是在安省的农村和北部地区,而看专科医生难的问题设计整个安省。

8) Appoint a task force to study access shortages to family doctors and specialists. Access to a family doctor is still a concern for many Ontarians, particularly in rural and Northern Ontario while access to specialists is a concern across the province.

 
彭建邦的政纲中有些是新的举措,许多是对现有政府计划的纠正和/或改进。选民如何看待这些承诺,以及他们是否会根据这些政纲将他们的选票投给进步保守党,还有待观察。为了拉票,进步保守党应该将精力放在选民们特别关注的问题上。长长的承诺清单只会分散选民的注意力。将精力放在那些对现任省长不满的问题上会博得选民的共鸣,因为推翻一个十年来不受欢迎的政府并非易事。

While some of these are new initiatives, many are corrections and/or improvement to existing government programs. How the voters will view these promises and whether they will switch their votes to the Progressive Conservatives based on these platforms remains to be seen. In order to reach the voters, the PC's should focus on just a few hot-button items. The long lists of promises will only serve to distract the voters.  Working on a few items that resonate with the people's dissatisfaction with the premier will go a long way towards toppling an unpopular government that has been hanging around for over a decade.
