Dalton McGuinty's transportation record

    You can't get from there to here with that

    TORONTO, Sept. 25 /CNW/ - If wishes were horses, Ontario would have seen
a renaissance in its public transportation system after four years of a Dalton
McGuinty government. That's because nobody makes a promise like Dalton
McGuinty. And for Dalton McGuinty, there's no promise like a transportation
promise. Unfortunately, with Dalton McGuinty all one ever gets are promises.

    -  Dalton McGuinty promised the Greater Toronto Transportation Authority
       over and over and over again - on page 21 of his 2003 platform, then
       on page 33 of the 2004 budget, then page 119 of the 2005 budget, then,
       yet again, on 110 of the 2006 budget.
    -  Dalton McGuinty promised a "seamless" GTA fare card that was supposed
       to be introduced by 2005. It took four years for Dalton McGuinty to
       announce a pilot project for a card that is virtually useless to
       anybody who lives or works in the City of Toronto because the card
       will only be accepted at five of Toronto's more than five-dozen subway
       stations. Good luck boarding a bus or a streetcar with that.

    And let's not forget the centerpiece of Dalton McGuinty's transportation
plan - the $17.5 billion promise. And what a promise it is.
    Please refer to the attached maps for a look at how Ontario's public
transportation systems have been transformed by Dalton McGuinty's government -
and how they will be transformed by Dalton McGuinty should he win the next
election. (http://files.newswire.ca/98/TransportationPlan.pdf)
    A John Tory government will ensure that there's "Truth in Taxes" in
Ontario and guarantee that 100% of gas and fuel tax revenue is spent on
transportation projects. Liberal MPP Jean-Marc Lalonde likes it:

    "When John Tory says he's gonna spend $800 million for public
    transportation, yes I support that 100%. 100%." (Ottawa Citizen editorial
    board meeting)
