Campaign Diary, Day 4: Quote of the day

Well, actually, it's the quote of Tuesday. From the Ottawa Citizen:
TORONTO - Preceded by his controversial budget, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty personally marched into the federal election yesterday as he dismissed Prime Minister Paul Martin's multibillion-dollar pledge to health care as a campaign promise and said he won't be rushed into a medicare deal in the heat of a campaign.

"What we're talking about now ... (is) a campaign promise made in the thick of the campaign. Let's wait to see the outcome of that campaign so we can better determine exactly what we're going to end up with," Mr. McGuinty said.
Okay, then. Thanks Dalton. Wise words. Good advice. But, uh, maybe you could have mentioned this to the Ontario people before they elected you? Given us a little warning maybe?

Something like, "People of Ontario, I promise not to raise taxes... Also, it's opposites day all through the campaign."
