McGuinty math with McGuinty Liberals

    TORONTO, Sept. 24 /CNW/ - Earlier today Dalton McGuinty claimed that John
Tory's plan to cap assessments would result in "Rexdale...subsidizing
    Here are the facts:

    According to data from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation, as
    reported in the Globe and Mail on October 19, 2005, property values in
    Toronto Ward 27 - which encompasses Rosedale - increased by 5.9%. On the
    other hand, property values in Wards 1 and 2 - which encompass Rexdale -
    increased by 9.3% and 10.3%, respectively.

the beneficiaries of a capped system own properties valued at less than

from out-of-control increases in their property assessments.
    It's time for Dalton to go back to school.
