On This Date In History....



    TORONTO, Sept. 23 /CNW/ -

    September 23, 1988: Ben Johnson sets a world record of 9.79 seconds in
the 100-metre sprint at the Seoul Summer Olympics Games. He is later stripped
of his gold medal after testing positive for banned anabolic steroids.

    September 23, 1992: Manon Rhéaume becomes the first woman to play in the
NHL when she minds the net for the Tampa Bay Lightning in an exhibition game.
She gives up 2 goals on 9 shots in her one period of action.

    September 23, 2003: Dalton McGuinty and the Ontario Liberals make another
promise to the people of Ontario:

    
        "TAXES PAID BY INDIVIDUALS AND SMALL BUSINESSES WILL BE THE SAME AS
        THEY ARE TODAY IF THE ONTARIO LIBERALS FORM THE NEXT GOVERNMENT."
    

    It's the second time in two days that Dalton McGuinty makes the promise
after citing a Fraser Institute report that says there will be a $4.5 billion
deficit.
    Dalton McGuinty's promise that "TAXES PAID BY INDIVIDUALS AND SMALL
BUSINESSES WILL BE THE SAME AS THEY ARE TODAY IF THE ONTARIO LIBERALS FORM THE
NEXT GOVERNMENT"...it's one more promise that he was quick to make, but failed
to keep.
