Ontario did not know of teachers’ union’s $65-million reserve when they gave them bribe money Deputy Premier says

Deputy Premier Deb Matthews says she did not know Ontario’s high school teachers’ union had $65-million in a reserve fund when the government secretly agreed to pay the union $1-million to help cover its negotiating costs.

Ms. Matthews, who is also President of the Treasury Board, oversees the province’s labour negotiations.

“I can tell you that I certainly didn’t know,” the Deputy Premier said on Friday after The Globe and Mail revealed that the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation had the money in the bank. “And the Auditor-General is going to take a look – and that’s appropriate.”

    Didn’t have a clue, Liz Saunders was a school teacher and Wynne a school trustee, proof positive both are liars.

    Kathleen Wynne the former school trustee of the TDSB didn’t know about teachers union reserve money before she bought them off again. I don’t think so! http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/metalgear/images/7/7f/Hear-No-Evil-See-No-Evil-Speak-No-Evil.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20140110032442

    Good, now ask for it back.

    C’mon. They spent about $6-million on provincial and federal election ads so they’re just recouping their expenses from that. And they’ve got receipts!

    Deb Matthews wouldn’t know sheep shit from dates – She is obviously a liar and if it wasn’t for her in laws she would be unemployed – She sure couldn’t cut it in the real world – Nobody at any level in the provincial government ever seem to know anything so why are they there-
    I am back to beating my head against the wall but I keep hoping that Just 5 or 6 honest liberal MPPs cross the floor or sit as independent and we got this b!tch defeated – C’mon surely you all can’t look the other way and hold your nose
    at the trough – Think of how you are contributing to the ruination
    of this once proud province – Somebody must care – Please stand up
    for the good of Ontario – I have no more money – We are going to end
    up living under a bridge in an empty BBQ shipping carton -What can
    we do? Honestly I think my head is going to explode-

      It now makes sense for why Paul Martin hid his wealth outside of Canada to avoid taxes .
      Liberals knew they would drive Canada into the ground and make it another 3rd world hell-hole since we now brought in those 3rd world people and their cultural barbarism by some of them .
