Duly Quoted: Dalton McGuinty

The "Education Premier" makes his case for scaling back teacher compensation.

“It’s disappointing the New Democrats have chosen a pay raise for teachers instead of preserving progress in the classroom. The Progressive Conservatives, for their part, have been very clear. They would cancel full-day kindergarten. Both positions are shortsighted.”

—Premier Dalton McGuinty, writing in the Globe and Mail about ongoing tensions surrounding negotions with Ontario’s teachers. The minority Liberals, with the backing of the Progressive Conservatives, are legislating a wage freeze and benefit reductions as part of their attempt to eliminate the deficit.
