Just Fancy That!

One of these quotes is a disgraceful denigration of Canada's most populous province. And the other is a responsible comment from one of the greatest leaders and statesmen of our time (c) Kinsella, 2008.

No prizes for knowing which is which.

"Ontario Set to Become Have-not Province" - Jim Flaherty, Globe & Mail, March 19, 2008

"Ontario May Face Future as Have-not Province" - Dalton McGuinty, CBC News, September 22, 2008.

And this one might be just a teeny bit embarrassing:

"Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is “absolutely wrong” in suggesting that Ontario is in jeopardy of becoming a “have-not” province under Confederation," - Ontario Finance Minister Dwight Duncan.
