On this date in history....

    TORONTO, Sept. 14 /CNW/ -

    September 14, 1535: Donnacona greets Jacques Cartier at the Iroquois
    village of Stadacona (Quebec) with the Iroquois word 'Kanata' or
    'Cantha', meaning 'settlement of huts'. It's the first recorded use of
    the name.

    September 14, 1987: The Toronto Blue Jays hit 10 home runs against the
    Baltimore Orioles to set a major league record for most homers in a 9-
    inning game. Combined the teams hit 11 home runs for another record.

    September 14, 2003: Dalton McGuinty makes another promise to the people
    of Ontario...

        "We will create the best workforce, attract the best jobs, and build
        the strongest economy." (Ontario Liberal Party press release)

    Since the beginning of 2005, Ontario has lost more than 143,000
well-paying manufacturing jobs.
    In 2006, 30,000 Ontarians left the province in search of brighter
opportunities in Alberta.
    Scotia Bank predicts that Ontario will place tenth out of ten provinces
for economic growth in 2007.
    The C.D. Howe Institute has stated that Ontario has the "...least
competitive business tax structure of any province."
    Dalton McGuinty's promise that he would create the best workforce,
attract the best jobs, and build the strongest economy...it's one more promise
that he was quick to make and failed to keep.
