No verdict, in gas plants scandal, will return the $1.1 billion the Liberals wasted: Ontario PCsPublished on February 26, 2018
Today, Ontario PC Energy Critic Todd Smith asked the Wynne Liberals, during Question Period, about the upcoming sentencing of a former senior Liberal operative in the gas plants scandal.
“While the justice system has taken its course, no verdict will return the $1.1 billion the Liberal government wasted just to win seats in an election,” said Smith. “Sadly, the gas plant scandal is just one example of the consistent pattern of political malfeasance by this Liberal government.”
“A senior official in the Liberal government deleted documents to try and hide the truth. Following the campaign co-chaired by Premier Wynne, the Liberals were only concerned about their best interests,” added Smith. “They were not concerned about the best interests of the people of Ontario. The Wynne Liberals simply cannot be trusted.”
“With only months to go until the next Provincial election, how can Ontario be sure that this Liberal government is not squandering billions more to try and save their seats?” asked Smith.
