...on behalf of Dalton McGuinty and his government, for turning what has the potential to become a populist anti-HST wave into an embarrassing monkey show:
In what was clearly an orchestrated protest by the Tories, the session began with Mr. Murdoch rising in his seat and saying, “Where I come from, [Premier] Dalton McGuinty is a liar.”
[Tory MPP] Bill Murdoch was asked three times to withdraw the remark and refused. When he was asked to leave, his caucus colleagues formed a human wall around him, leaving him well out of reach of the Sargeant At Arms.
After a 15-minute recess, Mr. [Randy] Hillier jumped into the fray and got ejected for the duration of the session for refusing to stop banging the lid on his desk.
Embracing the inner Teabagger. Yeah. That'll win you votes in Ontario. And, according to this, Randy Hillier is still lurking around Queen's Park after having been ordered to leave. Next thing he'll whip out the boots and red suspenders and be dumping dead deer on the grand stairway.
