Tory has said he will look at closing the Ontario's coal-fired power plants - the province's worst polluters - but not until there is a reliable alternative.
The kicker, Tory won't commit to closing coal plants, and yet he has the audacity to run scum ads on McGuinty's failure:
The last advertisement attacks McGuinty for breaking his pledge to close Ontario's coal-fired electricity plants. It shows a young girl coughing and concludes that "broken promises have consequences."
McGuinty is irrelevant, what is noteworthy, a leader and party who claims that McGuinty is killing people with his policies, while concurrently sanctioning those same policies. Maybe if Tory was advocating closing the plants immediately, then he would have a point, but because the PC's have taken the low road, logic dictates that John Tory pledges to kill more Ontario residents. The inference of broken promises is overshadowed by the knowledge that coal kills, and McGuinty has allowed this to happen.
John Tory is a joke. Tory's pathetic hypocrisy is akin to people drinking bad water, and him responding that until we find another well, bottoms up! Tory lowered the bar, he can roll in his own muck. John Tory is letting Ontario residents die, with full knowledge of the source. That's what the ad and the policy tell me.
