OSHAWA, ON, June 19 /CNW/ - As Dalton McGuinty continues his
Promise-It-Again '07 Tour, people across Ontario are asking why anyone would
believe him this time.
"Of course, the biggest problem with this plan is: Can we really believe
any promise Dalton McGuinty makes on the campaign trail?"
- Rob Granatsein, Toronto Sun, June 16, 2007
"McGuinty has already broken one coal plant promise. And unless the
premier has a new way of doing his math, the Liberals might not be running
Ontario in 2014. Even if they win again in October, that mandate only goes to
2011. As for the coal plant law, which could be put into regulation this week,
it can be changed like any other law by a provincial government. All of the
above is worth considering by Ontario voters, and remembering when they head
to the polls this fall."
- Barrie Examiner, June 19, 2007
"What McGuinty delivered last week with much pre-election hoopla and
Liberal slapping of Liberal backs is a map, not a ticket. It is a cheque for
billions of dollars without any signatures. It shows where mass transit growth
in southern Ontario -- including Waterloo Region -- might go in the decade
that starts in 2010. It does not, on its own, take anyone anywhere. And there
are roadblocks to be overcome before a single commuter benefits from either
the Liberals' fine intentions or their fancy political footwork."

"If this is simply a campaign platform, that's not good enough when
you've been in power for four years... They've had the opportunity, they've
had the resources of the entire civil service to work on this."
