In a second election Dalton McGuinty ran against John Tory and again he went on CFRB and again was asked by none other than Bill Carroll. "Premier McGuinty, you said you wouldn't raise taxes and you. Why should we believe you this time around?"

“Ontarians have done their share. They have made real contributions to our growth and prosperity in Ontario.”
McGuinty also said there are no current plans to start a cap-and-trade system because “we have no partners.”
