Dalton McGuinty, Early April, on why not to over-regulate:
"If you're going to rely on the law to ensure that your kids aren't drinking underage, then you don't have a good understanding of human nature,Dalton McGuinty, Late April, on why to over-regulate:
"While we have a law in place which I think has struck the right balance, it's also really important for parents to take a real interest in what their kids are doing, to try to impress upon them the dangers associated with drinking alcohol."
"This is a health issue. Don't we have to put health first? You ask any parents - smokers and non-smokers alike - 'Do you want your kids to start smoking?' They'll all give you the same answer, 'Of course I don't.'
"Science has demonstrated that these power walls are effective at
enticing kids so we want to get beyond that."
