Why Believe McGuinty's Promise on Dental Care? NDP

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 5, 2007) - Dalton McGuinty claims he's ready to help hard working families with health care costs - like dental care. The McGuinty record says otherwise:

- After promising not to Dalton McGuinty de-listed eye exams, chiropractic care and physiotherapy from OHIP forcing Ontario families to pay for those services. The number of new patients seeking chiropractic treatment has plunged 22 per cent since then and the Ontario Association of Optometrists says the government's failure to properly fund primary eye care services "a crisis in the making."

- Toronto's chief dentist Dr. Hazel Stewart proposed an expanded dental program to the McGuinty Government before the last budget and McGuinty Liberals refused to respond much less move on a plan ("Health minister silent on dental care" Toronto Star, February 23, 2007)

Why should we believe Dalton McGuinty's promises now when he has consistently let Ontario families down?
