McGuinty – “We Keep Our Word”

From Rob Granatstein, Toronto Sun:

Anyone else find it a little rich to hear Premier Dalton McGuinty and Finance Minister Dwight Duncan react to the great scoop by Sun columnist Christina Blizzard on the severance pay bonanza provincial tax collectors will grab as their jobs are shifted to the federal ranks?

The workers won’t miss a day of work, and can rake in up to $45,000 in severance for all that (lack of) hardship.

The reaction from McGuinty? “There’s an important part of our brand as a province, as a government, when we do business with each other and when we do business with the world, is that when we give you our word, our word is our word.”

Anyone care to argue the point, over, say, a health tax, for example?
