Dalton McGuinty's campaign of fear ignores the facts

    TORONTO, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - Dalton McGuinty continued his campaign of fear
in yet another school today, again using students as props for his election
    During the campaign stop, Dalton McGuinty claimed he is putting an end to
the closure of rural schools.
    That's simply not true.

    But here's what is true:

    -   Under Dalton McGuinty, the closure of rural schools is all but
        guaranteed. As reported in the Kingston Whig-Standard, the Limestone
        District School Board, is considering closing half of its schools.
        (September 6, 2007)

    -   The Limestone District School Board is just waiting to hear from
        Dalton McGuinty before it begins its public consultations on how to
        proceed with school closures. (Kingston Whig-Standard, September 6,

    While Dalton McGuinty continues to travel the province engaging in
groundless fear-mongering communities are left wondering what his real plans
are for school closures. He repeatedly promises to fix the funding formula but
according to his platform he won't even look at it until 2010.
    Eastern Ontario deserves an answer, Dalton.
    A John Tory government will invest at least $2.44 billion more in public
education and our commitment to improve the funding formula will provide
short-term help to schools in financial trouble and smaller and rural schools
in danger of closing (The PC Party Plan for Ontario's Future, page 8).
    Leadership Matters.
