Is McGuinty Starting to Sweat?

Jason Lietaer (PC): You know it's unpredictable when leaders start making things up. This week, Mr. McGuinty launched a new jobs plan that's not in his platform, announced a negotiating position for the OMA talks and cancelled a powerplant that looks more like a powerplant than a field.

Andrea Horwath: No Substance?

Jason Lietaer (PC): Ms. Horwath did well. Much improved from her performance on Friday. She was poised and on message, and I think most Ontarians saw her as genuine. Her ideas all sound great until you start to cost them, but that's not the biggest issue in any debate. Details don't win, impressions do.

Will Tonight's Debate Be McGuinty's Game-Changer?

Jason Lietaer (PC): Dalton Mcguinty's trying to make a difficult case: that things are going to get tougher and you need the same guy to continue. Do you think McGuinty did a good job under tough circumstances? Vote for McGuinty. If you think that his tax increases, high hydro rates and waste made a bad situation worse? Vote for one of the other options.

And if Ms. Horwath comes off as the adult in the room I won't be surprised or bothered because being premier requires adult behaviour.

The Jury's Still Out on Ontario Parties

Jason Lietaer (PC): A lot is still up for grabs in this election: Will the NDP be able to match the growth seen in the last three weeks of the federal campaign? Will Dalton McGuinty begin to beat back a prospective vote-stealing NDP surge? The pre-game is ending. Now the real match begins.

Green Jobs Are Under Attack

Even though embracing renewable energy will save ratepayers money, the Conservative Party of Ontario has vowed to cancel the province's program. Instead, Ontario should look more closely at Europe, where renewable energy is embraced by right- and left-wing alike because it is a win-win proposition.
