Breaking news from the Hamilton Spectator (Ottawa won't cover Caledonia Policing) - Ottawa does not seem to be responding to Dalton's demand that the feds ante up for Caledonia costs.
The policing costs are under provincial jurisdiction, so that demand is totally off the table. However, a spokesperson for Indian Affairs says they are still waiting for a "formal request" from the Ontario government.
Dalton, they want you to admit you messed up. Just do it. Start grovelling.
Swallow your pride Premier McGuinty and ask for help.
