I need to respectfully disagree with the leader of the NDP's assertion than any softening of tone on the divestment front is a result of NDP pressure. Let us not forget that we have a new premier who appears to want to mend links that McGuinty severed. The NDP did not not topple the 2012 budget, a move that would have stopped the divestment before it got as messy as it now is. Indeed, the NDP has helped, but it is local opposition and the numbers that the Auditor General is now investigating that have really made a difference.
