Don't do what the federal Liberals do, says I. Or, what they did.
What the federal Liberals did was announce, loudly, that they wanted an election. And when they did that, Harper called their bluff. Every. Single. Time.
Now McGuinty thinks he's being all cute trying to use Harper's own strategy against us. Because he's not Harper, however, he called Andrea Horwath to tell her this is all just a big silly game to try make the PC's look dumb.
So we had better not do what the federal Liberals did. Do not announce loudly that you are ready to bring this government down if you are not. If the NDP makes that decision, then they will wear it.
If it were me, I would one-up McGuinty as far as Harper goes: "Ontarians don't want an election."
Just my 2 cents.
