I know, I'm shocked too.
I had no idea.
I hope Ontario Liberal strategists are smarter than this [Orangeville Citizen, Taunts over Tory’s wealth may not work]:
Premier Dalton McGuinty’s Liberals are indicating they will try to label Progressive Conservative leader John Tory as rich in the 2007 election, hoping this will hurt him. But they should not bank on it.
Liberal strategists will revive a campaign they started the day the Conservatives chose Tory leader, when they distributed pamphlets calling him Richie Rich.”
After recently introducing legislation to raise the base pay for Members of the Provincial Parliament, in attempt to ensure that the best and brightest remain at Queen's Park, it would be unconscionable for the Ontario Liberals to revisit this tired strategy - to suggest that because someone was successful while in private life, they are unfit for public office or out of touch with Ontario.
Hopefully, Mr. Dowd is mistaken and way off here, and the Ontario Liberals aren't going anywhere near this.
