Whereas the Premier has admitted that she and all Ministers have set quotas of funds they are required to raise for the Ontario Liberal Party;
Whereas recent and repeated media stories have raised the public perception that Ministers are meeting their fundraising quotas by soliciting donations from the companies and associations who have active files before their respective ministries;
Whereas recent media stories have raised the public perception that decisions on government grants, contracts and policy changes are heavily influenced by the said donations;
Whereas these perceptions of impropriety have shattered the public’s trust in this government;
Whereas the people of Ontario deserve to know the truth about this Liberal government.
WE the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
To call on the Liberal Government to immediately call a commission of public inquiry to investigate how the Liberal Government does business with donors to the Ontario Liberal Party.
