You'll all be forgiven for being captivated by goings-on in Ottawa today, but let's not ignore the fact that the Ontario Liberals had a really bad day.
-Teachers unions are feeling that Dalton hasn't shown the proper respect.
-A committee of MPP's from the opposition wants ORNGE probed.
-McGuinty backed down on his opposition to the tar sands. Redford still wants an apology. She may well get it.
-Toronto Star columnists aren't happy with Dalton's diffidence on tax increases.
-Dalton thinks it's a great idea to arrest and investigate the father of a little girl because she drew a picture of her dad carrying a gun. Guy is a criminal anyway, but still.....
-People in Ottawa think the Senators could go bankrupt if the Liberals cancel a tax break for businesses. (As a Leafs fan, I'm conflicted.)
-Tim Hudak is about to bring forward a motion calling for subways, not streetcars. I'm sure Liberal MPP's in Scarborough, Mississauga, and Etobicoke will be very interested in that one!
What do the Ontario Liberals do in the face of all this? Try to connect the PC Party of Ontario to the robocall scandal.
I know the Ontario Liberals think they're being very clever here, but not only is there zero evidence the PC's had anything to do with the current investigation, the fact that Dalton's MPPs are just now remembering stuff like how their *daughters* came home from school talking about how there were calls saying Daddy is a "baby killer" is actually diluting the case against Harper and the CPC. As is the fact that everyone who wants their picture in the paper can now call up and say "Yeah, now that you mention it, I did get a weird call on E-day! It must have been a robocall!"
Hey, you know what? I was making breakfast this morning and the phone rang and nobody was on the other end and when I got back my toast was burnt! It must have been a robocall! Think the RCMP will investigate???
Why hasn't anyone investigated the possibility that Ford was elected because of robocalls? The left is falling down on the job!
Oooh, oooh! Dalton knew that the Drummond Report was coming out after the election and he told the voters that things were going to be okey-dokey anyway! Robocall!
