More liberal math with McGuinty Liberals

    TORONTO, Sept. 25 /CNW/ - Earlier today Dalton McGuinty's Liberals put
out a press release saying "math matters." On this we agree.

    Compare and contrast:

        John Tory's Costing Plan for Transportation

        -  In transportation, the PC plan calls for a significant and long-
           needed boost to Ontario's transportation infrastructure.
        -  The Ontario Government plans to spend $2 billion on transportation
           in the current fiscal year.
        -  Our 'Truth in Taxes' plan will see this expenditure line for the
           Ministry of Transportation increase to match annual revenues from
           the provincial gasoline and fuel tax by 2011-12.
        -  This represents $1.1 billion more annually in the provincial
           infrastructure funding, increasing total funding to $3.1 billion.
        -  Of this additional $1.1 billion, $800 million will be allocated to
           capital and operational funding for public transit and $300
           million will be sued for rural and Northern roads and bridges.
        -  These investments in transportation infrastructure represent a
           substantial boost in funding for our municipal partners.

        Dalton McGuinty's Costing Plan for Transportation


    (Let us know if you have any luck finding it.)

    The facts are clear - at the end John Tory's first term in government,
spending on transportation will be $1.1 billion more per year than it is
    At the end of another term of a Dalton McGuinty government Ontario will
still be waiting to see the first dime spent.
    It should come as no surprise, then, that Liberal MPP Jean-Marc Lalonde
has endorsed John Tory's plan:

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