Another pre-election promise you can't trust from the broken promise
QUEEN'S PARK, June 15 /CNW/ - Dalton McGuinty's transit promises are
built to be broken - so much so that they're not even included in the fiscal
plan McGuinty submitted to Ontario's Auditor.
McGuinty is promising to fund a series of transit projects - but the
money won't flow from the provincial treasury until 2011. That's two elections
away and the McGuinty Government's fiscal plan only looks four years ahead.
Also, the plan is deliberately vague about details promising only that a plan
will be developed in 2008 - after the election.
McGuinty's plan is a pre-broken promise:
- No money invested until 2011 - so the Auditor General can't confirm
the money's there.
- No detailed plan until 2008 - so Ontario families can't scrutinize the
- No completion date until 2020 - so Ontario's children will be voting
themselves before they can say whether McGuinty's broken his promise.
This announcement has a best-before date of October 11th, the day after
the election. Ontario families have learned the hard way you can't count on
Dalton McGuinty because he always breaks his promises.
