John McCallum Squeezed by Newman

... and left a quivering jello of a minister.
Only a couple of minutes into the interview on Newman this morning, Emperor John McCallum started shedding his clothes.
With Monte Solberg chuckling in the background, Newman was trying to figure out what the heck the former RBC Economics head was talking about. Monte made it clear that the CPC would have a new approach and brought out the Natl Poverty Coalition and Conference Board as supporters of their program financial efficacy. McCallum slagged the CPC for cancelling the Liberals pre-election promises (as if they had had a mandate to deliver on them to begin with).
Newman caught the Lib on one piece of LibLogic - "what's the difference between the Liberals giving Ontario $5 Billion and the PCs transferring money to the province?"
Newman suggested that really, wasn't it just a matter of choices - to allow people to make their decision on which plan they preferred?
Monte was wonderfully dismissive and too be honest, McCallum kinda looked shakey. He also advised that the whole Tory platform will be out by the end of the week.
