"They said they were working very well with the federal government, but now they're saying something quite different," Tory said.
"This government will say anything they can get away with in this matter, and do as little as possible in the meantime."

Well, if Caledonia is still occupied by this time next year, perhaps with the help of the Ontario electorate John Tory will be in a position to do exactly that.
