>> Jim Flaherty, then Ont. finance minister under Harris, just about put Ontario into the dumpster.

Jim Flaherty was finance minister in 2002-2003, not 1995-2000, when Ontario's economy was one of the best in Canada.

So, would you like to address my original point...

"In 1998-99, when Ontario's economy was humming along quite nicely, the Mike Harris government spent 13.78% of the Ontario budget on community and social services (i.e. welfare). Fast forward 12 years and that figure is down to 7.36%."

Do you think it's better to pay public employees big salaries (as McGuinty has done) RATHER than the people in poverty? Could you answer that?
