Reality Check: McGuinty Hasn't Earned the Right to be Re-Elected

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2007) - Dalton McGuinty kicked off the official part of his election campaign by smugly reducing voters' options in this election to essentially a choice between colas.

"Only one of two parties is going to win this election. Those who are considering voting NDP need to understand that there's only one party that can form a government that can continue to invest in public services." - Dalton McGuinty, City-TV News, 10 September 2007

But what McGuinty failed to mention is that there's only one leader who hasn't earned the right to be re-elected.

There's only one leader who broke his promise to provide treatment for children with autism and their families.

There's only one leader who broke a pledge he signed four years ago to this day to not raise taxes and then brought in a regressive Health Tax on working families.

Ordinary Ontarians know what this election is about - which party is going to stand up to get a fair deal for them and their families? That's why people whose trust McGuinty broke over the past four years are looking to Howard Hampton and the NDP this time.

As for his boast that only one of two parties is going to win this election, McGunity is plain wrong, just like Liberals were wrong to prejudge voters of Hamilton East, Parkdale-High Park York South-Weston, and Toronto-Danforth in recent by-elections.
