Dalton McGuinty's rural revisionism



    TORONTO, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - Dalton McGuinty's candidate Ian Wilson says
that Dalton McGuinty stands behind supply management. But what happened when
it came time for Dalton McGuinty's MPPs to vote in favour of supply
management? They voted against it.
    Here are the facts:

    
    -   Liberal MPPs voted against including a statement in support of supply
        management in the 2007 Budget. The motion, moved by PC MPP Ted Arnott
        in February 2007, read:

           "The standing committee on finance and economic affairs recommends
           that the Minister of Finance make a strong statement in support of
           supply management in the upcoming provincial budget."

    Liberal MPPs Wayne Arthurs, Linda Jeffrey, Judy Marsales, Carol Mitchell,
    and Lou Rinaldi all voted against it.

    -   These five also voted against another motion introduced by Arnott
        that read:

           "The standing committee on finance and economic affairs recommends
           that the Minister of Finance signal his support for supply
           management by signing the FarmGate5 petition."

    -   Ian Wilson claims that a statement of support is included in Dalton
        McGuinty's 2007 election platform - but it's not mentioned once in
        the document released by Dalton McGuinty on September 6, 2007.

    With a record like this, it's no wonder that Dalton McGuinty skipped the
annual parade at the International Plowing Match today and snuck onto the
stage through the back door.

    Leadership Matters.
