The McGuinty government had every opportunity (as I pointed out) to research the actual deficit independent of the finance minister's account. In fact, he was told by his own advisors that he was heading into deep water. It's irresponsible to promise something based on an opposition party's account despite warnings from your own advisors. The facts actually didn't change. The facts were there. The finance minister's account was wrong, the facts were still available and it would've been an astute decision to research them...especially when making a promise like this. I regularly listen to a talk radio show on CFRB from 3-4 called Two Bald Guys with Strong Opinions. One happens to be a conservative and the other is a lawyer who was elected president of the Ontario Liberal Party in 1998 and 2000. Both agree on one thing - this issue would most likely have been voted through legislature with the existing government and it was because of misinterpretation and plain old political b.s. that this relatively minor issue has come to the forefront and is making/breaking this election when it should never have done so.
