    Dalton McGuinty is the Primier of Ontario, a provincial leader, not the Prime minister of Canada. Perhaps it is likely he won't be Premier of Ontario after the next provincial election.

    Toronto Mayor David Miller is a leftist wingnut, more into symbolism than substance. He knows not of what he speaks but that doesn't stop him and that IMHO is what makes them dangerous when they have political power.

    I turned 20 in 1972 and I can clearly remember there wasn't the sort of violent disregard for life here then, that there is now; and we had fewer gun laws then........none of the left-leaning political or media types want to begin to address the real reasons why, just call for more laws that will not be effective in reducing crime.

    what is happening here, is that those who live in Ontario...especially those in Toronto, think they live in the centre of the universe...and they try to pass laws based on that assumption...and they (Toronto)have a long history of electing leftist/liberal/socialist/wingnut mayors...no wonder we in the west have no respect for them.

    Handguns in Canada are almost extinct now.
    I have been shooting since I was 12 (37 now) and I have only held one 2 or 3 times.
    They are makeing a big deal out of something imaginary.

    Guns cause crime like spoons made Rosie O'Donnell fat.

    ABSOLUTELY (except those who live in Ontario; there is a big difference between the rest of rural and small town Ont. and T.O.)

    To those of us in Ont. in small towns, the "big smoke" might as well be another planet; I'm sure it is, a very strange one.

    I work for an Alta. based outfit and I tell people from there that visit us on business, "please don't judge the rest of us by Toronto".

    A large number of us outside Toronto have ne respect for Miller & the like.

    As for a Liberal (large L or small l) politician, I would not urinate on them if they were on fire; I would let the fire burn itself out, then hose them down (darn, I have to get more expressive with my feelings)

    Most of us around here share that view.

    REM870TB....sorry if I painted all Ontarians with such a wide brush...I fully understand that it's TO that thinks it matters....been there once...winter...cold and dirty...nuf said...and Quebec introduced a gun bill today that will further restrict our freedoms...all in the guise of stopping lunatics who don't obey the law anyway from random acts of violence such as shooting up a college or other public place...
