How many doctors do you pay with a $3 billion cut?

    TORONTO, Oct. 3 /CNW/ - John Tory continued to demonstrate his weak
judgment today with a pledge for more doctors coming on the heels of his
pledge to rip $3 billion out of health care.
    We've seen this movie before. The Harris Tory party pledged to increase
services while cutting taxes and balancing the budget. They wound up closing
hospitals and left behind a $5.6 billion deficit.
    Only Ontario Liberals have delivered results for Ontario families and
have the plan to keep Ontario moving forward together.
