Here’s a guy with the nerve of a “canal horse”!
As a Premier of this Province he basically drained the tax payers pockets of every red cent he could, insituted a long range plan to basically ruin the future of most Ontarians for decades to come, dismantled a healthy and affordable electricity sector and was involved in hundreds of scandals that will never go away.
THEN, amazingly, has the absolute gall to show back up inside the Pink Building called Queen’s park to register as a lobbyist for a firm that develops software for educational purposes!
WOW………….now there’s a company to keep a wary eye on!
What planet does this guy live on and another question, why would any legitimate firm ever solicit this guy to help them get hands on more tax payer’s dollars????

Former premier Dalton McGuinty is defending his decision to become a registered lobbyist for a Kitchener-based company that got more than $3 million in Ontario government contracts last year.
McGuinty signed on to the lobbyist registry in late August — 18 months after he left office — to act on behalf of Kitchener-based Desire2Learn, which develops educational software. The company’s Brightspace system helps teachers deliver lessons and assign group work online. It is also adaptable for postsecondary and business settings.
McGuinty says schools around the world are introducing more technology into learning and he wants them to use made-in-Ontario products instead of American-made technology.
In a statement to The Canadian Press, McGuinty said the more schools that use Desire2Learn’s software, the more jobs will be created in Ontario.
I am proud to be representing Desire2Learn before the Ontario government as well as all other governments and businesses around the world
Earlier today, Liberal cabinet ministers defended McGuinty’s decision to lobby his former government colleagues, saying he followed the rules by waiting at least one year before taking on the job.
