You ever notice that Dalton likes to make a big deal of how the PC Party voted AGAINST something he likes? Because the idea of an opposition party opposing is somehow weird and strange to him?
Well guess what the Liberals did today. They voted AGAINST. Against subways, to be exact.
Now, you may not agree with Hudak or Ford on subways. What is impossible to disagree with, however, is that the Liberals voted AGAINST. And when election time comes around, we will be sure to remind the voters that their MPPs voted AGAINST. And then voters can exercise their judgement as they see fit. I predict that many of them will also vote AGAINST, specifically, AGAINST Dalton's MPP's.
The Liberals can employ all kinds of justifications for voting AGAINST, such as the one many of them employed today, saying that they are for subways, but they are AGAINST a PC motion supporting subways. Presumably if the motion had been a Liberal motion, they would not have voted AGAINST it. Because that justification is silly, all people are going to remember is that the Liberals voted AGAINST.
Debate on whether the Liberals are AGAINST subways is now closed. They can say as much as they want that they are personally for subways, but their voting record shows that they voted AGAINST.
Wow, this is fun! I can see why Dalton does this all the time. It's like the need for debate on the issue has totally been removed! AGAINST! That's the end of the discussion. LOL.
