Liberal Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli should resign

TORONTO – Not only should Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli resign.

He will resign.

His performance Tuesday as he slammed provincial auditor general Bonnie Lysyk was shocking.

Now that voters have given the Liberals a majority, they’ve become arrogant.

In my years at Queen’s Park, I’ve never seen a politician suggest an auditor got it wrong.

Lysyk had just released her annual report, which included a scathing review on the smart meter program.

Chiarelli’s response was the political equivalent of patting her on the head, telling her it’s complicated and, well, what does she know.
