Dalton McGuinty Playing Politics With Ontario's Public Service?

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2007) - A letter from Dalton McGuinty, distributed to all members of Ontario's public service, is being criticized for pushing partisan politics.

In the letter McGuinty writes: "Four years ago, when I gave my victory speech in Ottawa , I sent out a special message to Ontario public servants - a message that conveyed how much I value your role in serving the public interest and my enthusiasm about working with you to provide quality services to the citizens of Ontario."

Today, as McGuinty promises to "fight on behalf of the public interest and work to improve public services" those same people are worried that he's using tax dollars to solicit their votes.
