Wilson: Liberal-NDP Coalition Hiding From Accountability
(May 16, 2013) – Yesterday, the NDP propped up the corrupt McGuinty-Wynne Liberals and voted in favour of incompetence, scandals and wasted taxpayers’ dollars, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson said today.
“A Liberal-NDP Coalition is alive and well. Premier Wynne and Andrea Horwath are only focused on protecting their Party and will do whatever it takes to cling to their power,” said Wilson.
“The arrogance of the NDP and Liberals to waste hundreds of millions of dollars to buy an election is one thing. But to be so arrogant that you would hide from accountability is another.”
Wilson made the comments following the NDP’s decision to prop up a government that wasted $600 million to cancel the Mississauga and Oakville gas plants and then lie to Ontarians about it. “Ontarians deserve a vote in the Legislature about whether they have confidence in the Liberal government. Unfortunately, the NDP and Liberals teamed up to vote against this effort to give the people of Ontario a voice.”
“I expected the Liberals to put their party before the people of Ontario. But I never thought that the NDP would throw away their integrity and back this corrupt, morally-bankrupt McGuinty-Wynne government,” continued Wilson.
The sooner we change the direction of the province the better, continued Wilson, adding that half a billion dollars wasted on gas plants and a billion dollars in new spending initiatives to buy the NDP’s support will not put us on the right track.
“I can understand why leaving the Liberals in power is in the best interest of the NDP,” concluded Wilson. “But leaving the Liberals in power is not in the best interest of Ontario.”
