With just one full day of campaigning left before the Ontario election, NDP Leader Howard Hampton spent today trying to chip away at the chances of a Liberal majority government. At a campaign stop in Oshawa, Ont., Hampton disparaged Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty at every turn.
Hampton warned voters that a majority mandate would give McGuinty free reign to spend taxpayer money as he sees fit, break promises and possibly raise taxes. Hampton pleaded with the public to keep McGuinty “accountable.”
“Voters are telling us they don’t believe Dalton McGuinty, they don’t trust Dalton McGuinty and they don’t want Dalton McGuinty to have a majority government because they know what happens,” Hampton said after meeting with NDP candidate Sid Ryan at a Tim Horton’s in Oshawa.
“A day after the election all the promises mean absolutely nothing.”
