Ernie Eves has hit a new low in his smear campaign against Dalton McGuinty. Mr. Eves had this to say in response to the Liberals attempts to accuse the provincial Tories of hindering the efforts of an independent SARS review (emphasis mine):
“The Liberal spin doctors put the spin on that — that I am ordering people to shut up,” Mr. Eves said. “Nothing could be further from the truth, and it’s that kind of, I would say, almost libelous action on behalf of the Liberal campaign team, that surely the people of Ontario are objective enough to see through.”
My only explanation is that Ernie Eves suffers from some sort of multiple personality disorder which prohibits him from recalling his almost certainly libelous three-week campaign against Dalton McGuinty and the Liberals. It’s also not too late for Eves to invoke the “evil twin” defense.
