"Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dummer" Campaigns Are Letting Ordinary Ontarians Down

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2007) - Across the province, pundits and journalists agree: Dalton McGuinty's negative attacks and "Seinfeldian" campaign-about-nothing are letting everyday Ontarians down.

Since the start of the campaign, Howard Hampton and the NDP have been putting the issues working families care about first, like rolling back McGuinty's $450 health tax, ending fundraising in our schools and putting environmental protections in place.

Meanwhile, Dalton McGuinty has been putting himself first. Pundits and journalists agree:

"Premier McGuinty hasn't run a particularly good campaign himself. He's very lucky to be leading in fact... this whole campaign's been about Tory's ill-conceived plan and that's been manna from heaven - no pun intended - for the Liberals. They're not exactly cruising to victory either. It's sort of like tweedle-dum and tweedle-dummer out there." - Robert Benzie on Politics with Don Newman, October 1, 2007

"McGuinty displays an utter refusal to talk about his principles, and an eagerness to spread demonstrable falsehoods about his opponents." - David Reevely, Ottawa Citizen, 2 October 2007

"NDP Leader Howard Hampton has been desperately trying to set the agenda on his six campaign commitments, but his pleas are largely falling on deaf ears, drowned out by McGuinty's hysterical claims that Tory will bankrupt public education to fund faith-based schools and Tory's repetitive drum beat that you can't believe a word that comes out of McGuinty's mouth." - Editorial, Niagara Falls Review, 1 October 2007
