...the two most important words in this piece re the McGuinty Libs weekend policy confab. They refer to PCPO leader Tim Hudak, and suggest how the Libs will try and frame the election debate come fall. My two cents: this line of attack will be more effective than the Mike Harris crossed with a Neanderthal argument that some might prefer, just because Hudak will try so hard to evade the latter charge it will (indeed has already) hamstring any trademark Conservative policy initiatives that he might run on.
Three quick examples:
1) The HST; Tim opposes it but will not repeal (or even lower) it.
2) Green energy; its a boondoggle, but Tim won't tear up any contracts (though, on a more positive note, he may decide to put up a nuclear reactor in your back yard).
3) The Health Care Premium; Tim hates the "McGuinty Tax Hikes", but this is another one he won't rescind.
So it sounds as though Mr. Hudak is reduced to complaining about policies he will, if elected, do nothing to change.
