Family Day or Vote Buying Day: He Kept His Promise

It took him only one day. It cost him nothing. McGuinty kept his promise to create a new holiday in Ontario. The third Monday in February is now Family Day. Bully for him.

Of course, businesses are on the hook for the cost but what does the premier care. It was a cynical vote-buying election campaign promise and it seems to have worked. It is reminiscent of the class clown who runs for council promising beer and pizza for everyone. Promises like that are never kept becuase their makers are never elected - except in Ontario.
