To each his own

Macleans Columnist and blogger Paul Wells, all the way from France, lays out what every other journalist in Canada is either afraid to say, or just can't be bothered. Hopefully Premier McGuinty, Mayor Francis, Mayor McCallion, Mayor Miller and everyone else takes a few minutes to read it.
Didn't he volunteer for the job?

Three times?
By "he," I refer of course to Dalton McGuinty, whose re-election as premier of Ontario struck me as pretty good news, but who does not seem to have read the Constitution lately. Or maybe ever. The Constitution gives responsibility for municipalities to the provinces and, as a kind of bonus, it gives them power to raise taxes to pay for it.
