His questionable judgment is on display again
TORONTO, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - John Tory continues to obfuscate on the
Conservative legacy of hidden deficits.
While the Toronto Star said the Conservatives "outright lied" about the
$5.6 Billion deficit, all John Tory has said is that his party "probably
should have indicated that given all of those circumstances that it faced in
government, there was likely to be a deficit." (Canadian Press, Sep. 27, 2004)
That kind of questionable judgment was followed up with John Tory's
Conservatives voting against the Fiscal Transparency and Accountability Act.
That's the legislation that ensures the Auditor General signs off on the books
before the election. It's the legislation that ensures no government can ever
again hide a deficit from Ontarians.
McGuinty Liberals brought in that legislation. John Tory's Conservatives
voted against it.
Which raises the question: if given the chance, would they hide another
