What a difference a weekend and a political party can make.
This weekend, Premier Dalton McGuinty and his Liberals are holding a conference at a Mississauga hotel to help develop policy for the 2007 provincial election.
But it appears their work is top-secret because none of the sessions are open to reporters, who would love to get an idea what’s going on in the minds of Liberal policy wonks.
Contrast that to last weekend’s Progressive Conservative policy conference in Niagara Falls where leader John Tory lived up to his promise to have all sessions open to the media.
The danger in that, of course, is that radical ideas might bubble up from party members and steal the show from Tory and give reporters a sensational story.
But that didn’t happen. Unfortunately.
