Ontario is worth every penny 

So here it begins -- a Globe and Mail political reporter, Konrad Yakabuski, is claiming that the auto bailout is going to cost $1.4 million per job and that "maxed-out taxpayers" are questioning the cost.
Well, he's not speaking for me.
For decades, Canadians in Ontario have been shelling out to help Western grain farmers. And cattle ranchers. And hog producers. And forestry workers. And fruit growers. You name it, year after year, crisis after crisis, Ontario taxpayers have been paying for loan guarantees and subsidies and retraining programs and economic development grants for Western Canada.
So now, for once, Ontario needs help to save one of its most important industries.
And we can damn well give it to them.
