Hampton Electrifies Toronto Rally

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2007) - NDP Leader Howard Hampton electrified an over-capacity crowd at a Saturday morning rally. However, the real stars were the voters featured in the NDP's TV ad who traveled from across the province to share their stories of being hurt by Dalton McGuinty's broken promises.

"I admire your courage in stepping up, and telling Dalton McGuinty that you are not going to put up with it anymore. He let you down, but you are fighting back by speaking out. You have the power to make a difference and you are inspiring women and men right across this province to use their power to make a difference this Wednesday by voting NDP and saying no to Dalton McGuinty and his broken promises," said Hampton.

Federal NDP leader Jack Layton also spoke to the crowd before introducing the real voters from across the province including Gib Love, Carl Gordon and John Chapman, plant workers from Brantford, seniors Hay and Cecilia McLellan from London, and Cheryl Whynott whose daughter has autism, from Sudbury.

"Dalton McGuinty doesn't care about these working families. He doesn't care about seniors in longterm care, children with autism, people struggling to make ends meet on minimum wage, or young people who can't afford to go to college. One thing we do know Dalton McGuinty cares about is Dalton McGuinty. He proved that by giving himself a $40,000 raise in eight days," said Hampton.

"Don't give a Dalton McGuinty you don't trust and you don't believe a blank cheque. Don't give Dalton McGuinty a pat on the back and a licence to hurt working families for another four years. Vote for someone you can count on to care about working families, vote NDP," said Hampton.
