I think the second best example is Jean Chretien's 1993 "Red Book" promise to repeal the GST. He did. Replaced it with the HST in some provinces. As to the other provinces, he said to Peter Mansbridge to the effect of "What can I do if they don't want to negotiate?". I don't think replacing the GST with the HSt was what anyone had in mind anyway.
