Premier vows to ‘stay focused on the job at hand’

Premier Dalton McGuinty shrugged off another poll yesterday that suggests his Liberal government may be out of a job next fall as opposition parties renewed their attacks over soaring hydro bills.

Premier Dalton McGuinty shrugged off another poll yesterday that suggests his Liberal government may be out of a job next fall as opposition parties renewed their attacks over soaring hydro bills.

Even though recent polls indicate a majority of voters think it’s time for a change in government, McGuinty said they won’t distract him from focusing on issues that matter to families, like schools.

“I’ve got to stay focused on the job at hand,” he said. “There’s only one poll that counts. That’s the one you take on election day.”

McGuinty, who has been under fire for weeks over rising home electricity costs, acknowledged that hydro bills have gone up for many people and insists he’s been listening to their concerns.

The NDP is calling for a break on the provincial portion of the HST on hydro bills, which would provide immediate relief for millions of consumers, not just seniors, said New Democrat Rosario Marchese.
