Liberal Screwup Roundup, Sept. 14th

Strike one....

OTTAWA — Dalton McGuinty says it’s the business community’s turn to pick up the “damn baton” and create more jobs for Ontarians.

Appearing before the Citizen editorial board Wednesday, McGuinty likened Ontario’s economic growth to a relay race in which the government has done its part by providing the best environment for business to thrive. Now, he said, it is the turn of the business sector to take the race to the next level and create new jobs across the province.

Strike two.....

LEAMINGTON, Ont. - Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty is now the lone holdout for a debate in northern Ontario, with the Progressive Conservatives accepting a challenge from the New Democrats to face off a second time ahead of the Oct. 6 vote.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath has been pushing for a debate in the north for weeks, saying issues such as unemployment and the high cost of living in that area deserve their own turn in the spotlight.

Strike three!

More than 60% of Ontario residents oppose Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty’s proposed tax credit for immigrants, according to a new poll.

Almost half of Ontarians — 47% — indicated they were unaware of the Liberal immigration tax credit, according to the online survey by Abacus Data.

However, 62% of respondents said they strongly or somewhat oppose the Liberal plan to give businesses a $10,000 tax credit for hiring a highly skilled newcomer to Ontario.

Bang up job, Liberal campaign!

UPDATE: Strike four?


  1. Who's heading up the Liberal war room again? Oh, yeah.......


  2. Right. Business has to pick up the baton and run after you had burdened it with such a heavy load of taxes, red tape and heavy electricity cost.

  3. Real chessmasters, these Liberals!
