Ontario: Go Out And SHOP

CTV Toronto- McGuinty urges Ontarians to spend this Xmas - CTV News, Shows and Sports — Canadian Television

“But if you don’t buy that car — even though you can actually afford it — if you don’t buy that fridge, if you don’t shop at Christmas time, it can actually put us in a bit of a downward spiral.”

McGuinty said he’s not trying to tell families not to be prudent and responsible, but they should be aware that about 60 per cent of the economy is connected to consumer spending.



Now this is simply bizarre. I understand that he’s trying to keep the weak economy crawling forward, but that’s a pretty insensitive comment, considering all the job losses this week.
