Letter to the Editor – Brian Lynch on the Ontario Provincial Budget – Cornwall Ontario – March 29, 2010

The March 25 Ontario budget shows that the McGuinty Government has lost touch with the challenges facing everyday people in Ontario.

Ontario needs a comprehensive made-in- Ontario jobs plan […]

Dear Editor SAY WHAT YOU MEAN, MEAN WHAT YOU SAY MCGUINTY!! Will this Provincial Liberal government ever learn that your word is worth something in this world?
