Trust? “He considers himself a Mike Harris conservative but Ernie Eves spent his first eight months in office repudiating the Common Sense Revolution of the former premier.”
- Robert Benzie, National Post, Dec.30, 2002.
“It’s disappointing...Eves seems to be saying that everything Harris did was wrong. The ‘pink Tories’ have taken over the ship.”
“[The Progressive Conservatives’] bungling of the Hydro privatization file, their delay of promised tax cuts last year, and their disastrous decision to deliver their latest budget at an auto parts plant, rather than in the Legislature, to cite just a few examples, are all signs of a government that lacks direction and purpose.”
- Toronto Sun Editorial, May 18, 2003.
- Ernie Eves, Globe and Mail Nov. 16, 2001
“...a pale pink imitation of Dalton McGuinty.”
“...Ontario Premier Ernie Eves, the latest graduate of the Jean Chrétien School of Leadership Avoidance...”
“A serial waffler.” - Jim Flaherty, MPP,. Ontario PC Party.
- Christina Blizzard, Toronto Sun, Jan. 24, 2003.
“...for Mr. Eves, all that matters is the next provincial election; long term pain will be someone else’s problem.”
- from “Ernie Blows it Again”, editorial, National Post, Jan. 25, 2003.
“Mr. Eves - apart from a willingness to alienate the party’s core constituency while leaving the broad centre distrustful of his competence - continues to display a reluctance to make difficult decisions, a certain ineptness in choosing staff, and a general lack of engagement with his rather important job.”
- John Ibbitson, Globe and Mail, Nov. 25, 2002.
May 16, 2003: PC platform features mortgage interest deduction. On curriculum in independent schools: “These tax credits should be available only to parents whose children are in schools that teach the curriculum set out by the Ministry of Education.”
- Richard Van Seters, member of Tory “Blue Committee”, quoted in Report Magazine, Jul. 22, 2002.
“Eves’ style so far has been to take the line of least resistance, a marked change from his predecessor...”
April 16, 2003: Eves on a mortgage interest deduction: “When I presented the cost to [Mike Harris in 1996], he asked me what drugs I was on. You can’t go there.” - Toronto Sun
- Barry Cooper and David Bercuson, Calgary Herald, Apr. 30, 2003.
“I am not right wing.” Ernie Eves, PC Leadership race speech, Nov. 14, 2001.
“Eves has now completed a 540 degree turn. In skating terminology, he has done a 11/2 Axel...Eves has also demonstrated an ability to reverse direction on a dime if it is politically expedient. In just 11 months, Eves has performed U-turns on electricity deregulation, the sale of Hydro One, pension surplus regulations, nursing home fee hikes, and his own severance pay...He can always swallow himself again.”
-Ian Urquhart, Toronto Star, Mar. 24, 2003.
“Every day I grow more and more disappointed to be an Ontarian, a conservative Ontarian.”
- Bay Street executive, quoted in Globe and Mail, Jan. 23, 2003.
“Unfortunately, I didn’t know that we have a Premier who is a complete lunatic...” - Rebecca MacDonald, President and CEO, quoted in Financial Post, Nov. 13, 2002.
“...a government that has shown in the past eight months that it hasn’t met any policy that it didn’t want to reconsider if there was any electoral advantage in doing so.”
- Murray Campbell, Globe and Mail, Dec. 23, 2002.
The Tories are in total disarray.”
- Christina Blizzard, Toronto Sun, Jan. 15, 2003.
“Ontario, in particular, has been directionless since the pathologically centrist Ernie Eves took over as Premier last April.”
- National Post editorial, Jan. 16, 2003

A Message from
Paul McKeever Leader, Freedom Party of Ontario
“I firmly believe that the greatness of a society is determined not by its government’s tendency to divide a single loaf of bread evenly, but by the efforts of its members to produce enough loaves for everyone. Individual choice, personal responsibility, dignity, prosperity and justice. That is Freedom Party’s vision for Ontario over the next four to five years. It all starts with your vote.”
