Ontario Cons -- friends of public broadcasting?

See here. Why do I not believe John Tory when he says that he's terribly upset about the cancellation of TVOntario's Studio 2? Probably because, were the shoe on the other foot -- that is, was a public broadcaster criticizing a Tory government -- I have no confidence he wouldn't have done exactly the same thing. (After all, his predecessors, Messrs. Eves and Harris were notorious for stifling dissent wherever it came from.)
