Russ Campbellâ€™s Blog: Kathleen Wynneâ€™s Uses Ad Hominem Attacks and Nasty Innuendoes
The OnÂtario LibÂerÂals are runÂning an uber-negÂaÂtive elecÂtion camÂpaign remÂiÂnisÂcent of the nasty one the fedÂeral LibÂerÂals ran in 2006 when Paul MarÂtinâ€™s Grits lost to the Stephen Harper ConÂserÂvÂaÂtives.
KathÂleen Wynne reÂcently imÂplied that Tim HuÂdak would cut the pubÂlic secÂtor workÂforce so deeply he would cause deaths in rural OnÂtario Ă la the 2000 WalkÂerÂton conÂtÂaÂmÂiÂnated waÂter tragedy.
â€ś[C]uts have conÂseÂquences,â€ť she said at a photo-op. Was she imÂplyÂing that the curÂrent manÂageÂment of the townâ€™s waÂter supÂply was not up to the task and needs the provinceâ€™s overÂsight to keep WalkÂerÂtonâ€™s drinkÂing waÂter safe? ProbÂaÂbly not.
It is far more likely she wanted us to inÂfer HuÂdakâ€™s planned ausÂterÂity proÂgramâ€”made necÂesÂsary by LibÂeral misÂmanÂageÂment and waste over the past decadeâ€”would â€śslash and burn and chilÂdren will die,â€ť as Christina BlizÂzard phrased it in yesÂterÂdayâ€™s Toronto Sun.
