Wind turbine company's cash influenced Liberal government: Wilson
(April 13, 2016) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson, today during Question Period, pointed out that his constituents can't be blamed for thinking that Wpd Canada's donations to the Ontario Liberal Party influenced the government's decision to approve the wind turbine company's project near the Collingwood Regional Airport.
Wilson provided three examples of how the Ontario Liberal Party accepted donations from the company during the approval process for the wind turbines.
Wilson questioned Environment Minister Glen Murray about the matter, asking him to explain the government's actions.
Murray defended the approval process, saying that in no way did he get involved, adding it was wrong to suggest otherwise.
Wilson pressed the minister in a follow-up question, asking: "Does the Minister seriously expect the people in my riding to believe that these donations had absolutely nothing to do with his approval of Wpd's project?"
