Ontario Liberals : So What?, The Continuing Lottery Saga

Here's the money quote from Ontario's New Government [Toronto Star, Minister urged to quit over lottery scandal]:
[David] Caplan said he's working to restore confidence in the lottery system, which pumped $2.4 billion in provincial coffers last year, and he won't resign.

"Taking responsibility means rolling up your sleeves and fixing the problem that we, unfortunately, inherited from previous governments," he said.

Emphasis mine.

Here was my prediction:

I know, I know - it's all Mike Harris's fault. Or, Stephen Harper's. It's always somebody else's fault.

Wait for the spin, too, which should be interesting. I say "it should be" because they're not allowed to blame Bob Rae anymore.
