Independent Ombudsman delivered a scathing review of Dalton McGuinty's leadership

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, the independent Ombudsman delivered a scathing review of Dalton McGuinty's leadership.

Ontario's Ombudsman André Marin said Dalton McGuinty's government is rife with "puffery" and was tempted to title his annual report, "The Year of Overpromising and Underdelivering."

Today's newspapers echo Marin's criticisms of Dalton McGuinty's government:

  • Globe and Mail: "Ontario Ombudsman André Marin says the government agencies investigated by his office all share a common trait - the use of "puffed-up" promises to paper over their failings."

  • Toronto Star: "Ontario government agencies and ministries are still 'over-promising and under-delivering' to the people who pay their salaries, says provincial Ombudsman André Marin."

  • London Free Press: "Marin called the practice of overpromising and underdelivering 'puffery' and said it undermines the public's trust in government. "Puffery can become a shield for inertia and apathy," he wrote. "If governments and their agencies believe they can hustle the public, they will be tempted to leave their programs under-resourced and flawed."

  • North Bay Nugget: "At the heart of this matter is one thing: accountability."

In response, John Tory said, "'Puffery' truly is the perfect way to describe Dalton McGuinty's government. We agree with the independent Ombudsman's characterization that this government is full of grandiose promising and poor delivery. Our Party is determined to change that and be measured on results."

One of the four pillars in John Tory's PC Party plan for Ontario's future is Government that works for you. Read more.
