The Wynne Liberals will be breaking their own law if they don’t release a Pre-Election Report on Ontario’s finances before the election, Ontario PC Finance Critic Vic Fedeli said today.
“It’s suspicious. When the Liberals passed this law in 2004 they were eager to release their own financial numbers and projections. Now, 15 years later and after much controversy about their numbers, they want to hide everything,” said Fedeli. “Nothing about this government’s numbers are prudent and cautious, which is why they’re being cagey about releasing this Pre-Election report on Ontario’s finances.”Read more

Whitby-Oshawa MPP Lorne Coe, Official Opposition Critic for Post-Secondary Education and Associate Critic for Education, said today that the number of community college students who have dropped out due to the Liberal Government’s inaction on the college strike is another shameful blotch on the Liberals’ record.
“Under Premier Kathleen Wynne’s watch, we witnessed the longest college strike in Ontario’s history, affecting over 500,000 students,” said MPP Coe. “The Ontario Progressive Conservative Caucus called on the Liberal Government from the first day of the strike to step in and do everything they could to get students back into the classroom. Instead, the Liberals sat on their hands and waited weeks before taking action.”
OPG was found to be one of the power companies gaming ratepayers out of hundreds of millions of dollars
Today, during Question Period, Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown asked the Wynne Liberals why they awarded a sizable bonus to the CEO of publicly-owned Ontario Power Generation (OPG), one of the companies responsible for gaming ratepayers out of hundreds of millions of dollars.
In total, nine companies, including OPG, bilked ratepayers for over $260 million in ineligible expenses, much of which has never been paid back.
