The 5 faux-pas' of John Tory's Ontario campaign.
Mistake #1. Not coming out of the gate saying they were going to cut the McGuinty $900 health tax.
Mistake #2. Coming up with the idea of tinkering with the school system, especially in a fall election. Bad move.
Everyone is already spending their September all stressed out about getting their kids into school, and then Tory comes along and adds to their school-related stress. McGuinty's stay the course solution obviously offers more comfort to the voters.
Mistake #3. Spending three-quarters of the election on the defensive trying to explain their education idea, instead of saying they were going to cut the McGuinty $900 health tax.
Mistake #4. Offering a free vote on their education idea, instead of talking about their plan to cut the McGuinty $900 health tax.
Mistake #5. Talking about anything else right now other than the fact they plan to cut the $900 McGuinty health tax.
