 CBC - Ontario Votes 2003
From the moment in 2001 when he declared his candidacy to lead the Progressive Conservatives, Ernie Eves sought to put ideological distance between himself and the policies of his predecessor, Mike Harris.
Since his election, Eves had spent freely to quell the social unrest caused by years of Tory cost cutting: a controversial proposal to privatize Ontario's electrical utility was watered down and eventually dropped, with caps re-imposed on hydro rates.
But Eves' shift to the middle was overshadowed by political blunders: he flip-flopped on a Harris-era plan to privatize the province's electrical utility; the first-ever budget presented outside the legislature led to charges of contempt for democratic process; the government seemed unprepared when flouts loomed at the height of last summer's heat wave.
