NDP Launches "Dalton Ducks"--The Official Record-Ducking Game of the 2007 Ontario Leaders' Debate

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2007) - Four years ago, Dalton McGuinty promised change that he never delivered. And now that it's election time, Dalton's ducking. Ducking his broken promises. Ducking accountability. Ducking regular Ontarians.



" . . . McGuinty was caught off guard, ducked (the) question and ended
up looking weak." - Ottawa Sun, 16 September 2007

But on debate night, Dalton's game ends and yours begins.

Just in time for tonight's televised Leaders' Debate, the NDP is launching "DALTON DUCKS: The Official Record-Ducking Game of the 2007 Ontario Leaders' Debate" -- the fun way to watch the 2007 Ontario Leaders' Debate!

DALTON DUCKS gives Ontarians the chance to earn points every time McGuinty refuses to answer for any one of his broken promises on things like "no new taxes" or to "fix school funding." Every time Dalton ducks in the debate, players can yell-out "quack" and get a point. After all, shouldn't ordinary Ontarians get something in exchange for putting up with four long years of the McGuinty Liberals?

When the debate is over, the NDP will release the official DALTON DUCKS™ results at www.ontariondp.com/daltonducks.
