And this quote from McGuinty brings it home:
“I’m absolutely convinced that the PCs in fact are supportive of the HST. They were always there and they always have been,” said McGuinty, shrugging off Hudak’s public opposition to the tax.
“In fact, we would not have been able to move forward with the HST in Ontario without the support of many Ontario PCs, whether you’re taking John Baird or Tony Clement … or Jim Flaherty,” he said, referring to former Tory MPPs who are now top members of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative cabinet.
Leadership on the economy and job creation helps Ontario families more than buck a beer.
