Well, I'll be dipped in beer. Dalton's going to privatize stuff, which is something he said he wouldn't do. And he's going to, um, not lower corporate taxes like he promised.
Now, here's what's going to happen:
-Dalton can never- never again- accuse us of wanting to "sell off assets".
-Dalton's going to annoy corporate investors. Again.
-Dalton's going to make people worried that he'll actually sell the LCBO and other assets.
-Dalton's going to annoy conservatives who want the LCBO sold lock stock and barrel. (Hey, Hudak! Now's your chance!)
-People are worried about more ORNGEs. (The problem with ORNGE was the public tax dollars, not the privatization, but let's let Dalton make that case for a change.)
-The NDP will complain, as they do, thus squeezing Dalton in the middle.
What next, Dalton? This is what tackling the deficit looks like. Don't be shy.
