Today, looking for news about the PCPO leadership debate that took place last night in London, I stumbled on this release...
Already the liberals are wasting no time framing each of the leadership candidates as out of control conservatives, who cannot get along between their "divisive" and "regressive" policy options.
While the race is not over and the inner fighting begins, we have to make sure not to let McGuinty's liberals take advantage of that time to drag us in the dirt, misshaping each candidate's ideas in front of the Ontario public.
Conservative leaders' policies are the wrong direction for Ontario
LONDON, ON, May 21 /CNW/ - Tonight marks the first of four, official
Conservative leadership debates. As the race drags out, the candidates are
beginning to take swipes at each other's policies, which shouldn't come as a
surprise to anyone as they all have their share of regressive, divisive ideas.
Christine Elliott believes that people making minimum wage didn't deserve
the increases made since 2003 and is proud of the Harris 8-year freeze on
minimum wage increases. She also thinks that vulnerable workers should be
further disenfranchised through the old Harris policy of extending the minimum
work week to 60 hours.
Randy Hillier and Tim Hudak agree that the Human Rights Commission has to
go - that people who have been victim of human rights violations would have to
find the money to hire lawyers they can ill afford.
Hudak wants to create a system of chaos and strikes in our hospitals,
schools and other public services as he tears apart labour contracts. In his
youth as a Harris MPP, he must have forgotten the chaos and massive strikes
caused by these policies.
Frank Klees, doesn't really talk about policy, but we know he does stand
for two-tiered health care and public funding of private schools.
The Ontario Conservative Leadership Candidates all have one thing in
common; they want to see Ontario go back to the days of Harris-style cuts and
chaos in our province.

its no surprise the Ontario Liberals will go after whoever wins , they know by 2011 people will be geting tired of them and looking for an alternative , simply put dalton will be old news by then leading one of the most economically struggling provinces in canada .
i can see Dalton and his liberals being in alot of trouble by then . this last year has been a very easy period for them by the road ahead will be rough . expect them to get desperate and just down right nasty . warren kinsella will be busy dreaming up new attacks especially since it looks like the liberals are losing alot of there union supporters which helped them out the last 2 elections running all those working family ads , considering there now protesting at liberal mpp offices i doubt they will be running those ads on the liberal behalf again .

I really don't see Dalton sticking around till 2011 anyway, so this is all bunk.
think that is a possiblity that he might be gone by then , after all he'd have been liberal leader for an incredibly longtime by then , as he was first elected liberal leader sometime before 1999 and been an mpp since 1990 , so thats over 20 years in politics and some pretty controvercial years if i must say in there .
somehow i just don't see the promise breaking , tax and spend liberal premier of the newest have not province running for a third term ( especially when considering the backlash that is sure to emerge once people actually start paying the massive new HST tax ) . but who knows maybe he'll surprise me .
