Dalton McGuinty is a little cranky that we're being mean to him about his precious tax credit for immigrants who are better than other immigrants and not for people who are not immigrants. He thought he could put whatever he wanted in his platform and that Ontarians would give him another majority. So he released a whiny video where he and his candidates stand around looking very very serious and ask for an apology. (Oddly enough, no actual immigrants seem to be present.)
And in this video, Dalton McGuinty says something amazing. He says, "In Ontario, there is no us and them. There's just us."
The guy who has, for the past eight years, divided this province into two camps- his group of people who are taking Ontario forward, and the other group of people who will supposedly take everything backward- wants an apology because someone else used us and them rhetoric?
More to the point, why is Dalton asking for an apology? Is he an immigrant who will be affected by this policy? Shouldn't he produce an immigrant who will, on cue, complain about how they have a problem with how they're being labelled? I thought that's how this worked....or...maybe he just can't FIND anyone.....
Here's what I think, Dalton. You've demonized US for the longest time. You want an apology? First, you apologize to us.
