Dalton Versus Paul

I've got to wonder what Dalton McGuinty has against Paul Martin. First he supports John Manley in the leadership race. Then he delivers a budget which may cost the feds 5 seats in Ontario. Now, he makes these comments:

May 26, 2004 - OTTAWA -- Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty yesterday dismissed Prime Minister Paul Martin's multi-billion dollar health-care funding promising as nothing more than an election promise. "What we're talking about now ... (is) a campaign promise made in the thick of the campaign. Let's wait to see the outcome of that campaign so we can better determine exactly what we're going to end up with," the premier said.

He's sure not helping the cause, eh? Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Dalton fan but I'm not sure he's the one who should be giving lectures on "campaign promises made in the thick of the campaign."


  • McGuinty is the victim of an ignorant electorate. There was NO way that he would have been able to win the Ontario election if he said he would raise taxes. The sad thing is that people are too stupid to realize that you need money to pay for things. With the legacy of Harris resonating for years to come, McGuinty had no choice.

    At any rate, McGuinty is more of a left-leaning Liberal at heart unlike the current federal regime. I'm not suprised at his comments - looking like your Martin's bitch is not politically tenable right now.
