The Ipsos-Reid poll, done for Canwest News Service and Global TV, shows 38 per cent of decided voters support Premier Dalton McGuinty's Liberals, putting them five points ahead of John's Tory's Conservatives.
Howard Hampton and the New Democrats attracted the backing of 17 per cent while nine per cent said they would vote for the Green party.
The political lesson? Bland still works in Ontario and you can break as many promises as you like as long as you say your sorry.
The Ontario Conservatives biggest problem? Their leader. Seriously, I have lived in Ontario for 20 years, and run a blog devoted to Canadian/Provincial politics, and I couldn't pick the man out of a police line-up.
