A few examples that might surprise you. Tim Hudak’s team apparently doesn’t know how to draw to scale. This conveniently allows them to make values seem much larger or smaller than they really are.
How stupid does he think we are?
The y-axis is fudged to visually exaggerate the portion of the area under the curve corresponding to the increase under McGuinty. Notice how the distance between $0 and $150 billion is the same as the distance between $150 billion and $200 billion. The x-axis is rescaled such that all of McGuinty’s portion looks far bigger (apparently he’s been in power half of Ontario’s history). http://www.ontariopc.com/pdf/Changebook_en.pdf
A 77% increase should correspond to about 3 and a half little men. Instead there are 20 more. Nevermind no adjustment being done for revenue/population increases or inflation. http://www.ontariopc.com/pdf/Changebook_en.pdf
The proposed $6.1 billion increase in healthcare spending is a modest, 12% increase, probably mostly in line with the spending necessary to keep up with a growing population. But look at that, in the illustration it goes from 16 ambulances to 40! That’s a 150% increase! http://www.ontariopc.com/pdf/Changebook_en.pdf
