Dalton McGuinty is well remembered for raising taxes in Ontario, shortly after promising not to raise taxes. The Gimp is once again promising not to raise taxes, though he's not willing to put it in writing this time, just in case a suitable scapegoat can be found to justify further increases. In other words, he promises not to promise not to raise taxes.
On the tax front, Premier Dalton McGuinty marked the fourth anniversary of his broken 2003 campaign vow to freeze taxes by making the same pledge if the Liberals are re-elected -- only this time, he's not putting it in writing.John Tory would blame the government for not having enough power over the education of your child. In addition to extending funding to faith-based schools (does this include funding for Scientologists?), Tory aims to limit learning outside of school hours to 10 minutes per day.
Tory is promising to limit homework to 10 minutes per grade a night, which his platform says will provide some relief to students and their families who struggle under the nightly burden.
