Campaign chair Greg Sorbara, key architect of the 2003 landslide when the Liberals won 72 of 103 seats to the Tories' 24, predicted "a strong victory."
"Certainly a majority. There is no appetite in Ontario to change the government," said Sorbara.
Well then. Perhaps we should just cancel the actual vote. No need to bother, right?
Yesterday afternoon, I was listening to a phone-in show from Toronto where the hosts were asking the listening audience if Dalton's broken promises made a difference in how they would vote. One woman called in and said she would vote Liberal no matter what; that they all make promises and everyone knows they won't keep them.
Has it really come to this? Is a promise just a bunch of meaningless words designed to achieve some goal?
If we don't even expect accountability in government, where are we headed?
