Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory had one of his worst days yet in the Legislature on Wednesday.
While NDP Leader Howard Hampton was hammering the government on one of the most explosive issues at Queen’s Park in recent memory - the medical evacuation of up to 1,100 people from Kashechewan Reserve - rookie Tory was questioning Premier Dalton McGuinty about the loss of manufacturing jobs in Ontario.
Economic Development Minister Joe Cordiano, who dismissed the Tories’ claims the province’s economy is stagnating as “a bunch of bunk,” could barely contain his glee at the line of questioning.
Needless to say, Tory’s strategists are promising to go after the government in Thursday’s Question Period on - you guessed it - the Kashechewan crisis.
A day late and a dollar short, perhaps, but better late than never.
