McGuinty-Wynne Liberals -- Putting Their Party Before Taxpayers
(April 19, 2013) The McGuinty-Wynne Liberals are so focused on maintaining their power that they are willing to put their political interests ahead of the interests of taxpayers, PC House Leader Jim Wilson said.
“The McGuinty-Wynne Liberals are so desperate to protect their political power that they are willing to waste hundreds of millions of dollars at the expense of Ontario taxpayers,” said Wilson. “And now that she has been caught red-handed, Premier Wynne and the Liberals are doing everything to avoid accountability. The McGuinty-Wynne Liberals’ behaviour is indicative of systemic dishonesty.”
Wilson added that Wynne lied about the true costs of cancellations, she no longer answers questions in Question Period and her Energy Minister is running down the hall away from the media. “The McGuinty-Wynne Liberals are willing to say - and do - anything in their desperate attempt to cling to power.”
Premier Wynne and the Liberals have withheld documents on three occasions, shut down the Legislature and have lied about every aspect of the gas plant scandal, said Wilson, adding that it is appalling that Ontario taxpayers have to go through this much trouble to get the answers they rightly deserve.
“It is inexcusable that Premier Wynne continues to lie to Ontario taxpayers to protect the Liberal Party,” concluded Wilson. “After all, it was taxpayers’ money that the Liberal Party wasted to win five seats.”
