"While it is understandable that our two governments may differ from time to time on matters of economic policy, it is completely unacceptable for Canada's Minister of Finance to publicly and deliberately attack the choices made by Ontarians. Together, Ontarians are working hard to create new jobs and secure new business investment. The competition is global and fierce. Minister Flaherty's extraordinary attack on Ontario is a betrayal of the federal government's responsibility to champion the Canadian economy, both at home and abroad."
Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario
