I’d really hate it if John Geddes’ excellent article on Ontario’s economic situation got lost amid everything else going on here at macleans.ca. A highlight is the transcript of John’s interview with Dalton McGuinty, where the Ontario premier picks up the Flaherty/Poilièvre gauntlet with surprising elegance:

“This arose because Minister Flaherty took it upon himself to decide that Canada would offer the world a combined corporate income tax rate of 25 per cent. We had no discussion as to whether we would embrace that or how long it would take to get there. By the way, he’s decided it’s 15 for him and 10 for us. So I think there was frustration on their part about our not embracing that.”
