In June and July, 2002, I emailed the Members of Parliament and the Ontario Members of Provincial Parliament. The May, 2002 launch of a multi-year, multi-media anti-bullying public education campaign immediately addresses the concerns of young targets of bullies. I wanted to raise awareness about bullying in policing, an issue that adversely affectas those who are supposed to protect society from the same. I included a link to my site, and received the following responses.

Dalton McGuinty:(autoresponse)
Thanks very much for your e mail. I really appreciate your taking the time to contact me. I'm always interested in knowing what is on Ontarians' minds. Although I do my utmost to reply personally to everyone, it's not always possible due to the tremendous amount of correspondence I receive. I hope to be able to send you a response that addresses your specific concerns. However, even if I can't get back to you, rest assured that your message is still important to me and won't be forgotten.

If you'd like more information on the Ontario Liberals' goals and policies, including details on some of our recently released plans, I invite you to check out our Web site. Perhaps you've already browsed the site but, if not, the address is: To determine whether the issues you raised are under federal jurisdiction, please consult the Government of Canada Web site at

As you know, the Eves government has adjourned parliament for the summer. But my team and I will be continuing our work for Ontario families outside the legislature. We will be spending more time in our home ridings, serving the needs of our own constituents. I will be touring Ontario over the next couple of months. I always look forward to this as it gives me an opportunity to meet face to face with Ontarians in all parts of the province and to hear about the issues that really matter to them.

Thanks again for writing and for your interest in the Ontario Liberals' work. The bottom line is we will continue to fight hard for Ontario families. We all look forward to better times ahead. Have a great summer!

Yours truly,

Dalton McGuinty, MPP Leader of the Official Opposition Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party
