Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty is telling Toronto Mayor David Miller to raise taxes.
Let's re-cap a few memorable (paraphrased) lines from Misters McGuinty and Miller:
"I won't raise your taxes." (September/October 2003)
"Oops...I just introduced the largest tax increase in Ontario's history." (April 2004)
"I won't raise your taxes...Again...I mean it this time." (June 2007)
"We need a new tax on televisions, computers, and printers." (June 2007)
"The federal and provincial governments rip Toronto off. We need new taxes." (everyday since being elected)
"We are ramming many many new taxes down the throats of Toronto residents. Some people are opposed? Damn them all." (May 2007)
"I am so arrogant and such a left-wing ideologue that I am going to ignore a poll that says 71% of Torontonians oppose new taxes. Heck, I'm not even going to show up at the public forums to discuss these new taxes." (May-June 2007)
"You rejected my plan for new taxes? How dare you! That's it - I am ordering my minions to cut recreation programs to under-privledged kids. That'll teach you to not stand in my way!"
