Reevely: Hiding billions in hydro debt ‘unacceptable,’ Ontario’s auditor general says

Hiding billions of dollars the Ontario government is borrowing to lower electricity bills for a few years will cost hydro users an extra $4 billion, the province’s auditor general reported Tuesday morning.

Maybe worse, Bonnie Lysyk said in a special report on the Liberals’ “Fair Hydro Plan,” the tricks the government is using throw doubt on all the province’s books. The government, citizens, auditors and giant institutions that lend the province money are pretty much operating in a post-truth universe, where what the Liberals say is going on with Ontario’s finances has begun to drift from any previously understood shared reality.

  • This kind of financial mismanagement would be tolerated nowhere in the private sector.

    Where are the taxpayers? Why haven’t they had riots over this?

    • Uncommunist

      Too busy paying taxes to support parasitic 3rd wave liars and terrorists.

        The takers all run on maxed out credit cards.
        Money, saving and value are just words.

      • Too busy grumbling but not doing enough to make Liberal MPs soil their shorts.

  • Uncommunist
  • We may as well eliminate the post of Auditor General. Auditors General have been indicting the Ontario Liberals for years in their reports, and nothing is ever done. I’d rather that the Liberal crooks would rip us off without us knowing about it, than us knowing about it and helpless to do anything about it. The post of Auditor General is merely a ceremonial/symbolic position, much the same way such a post would be in a Communist dictatorship.

  • Liberal Progressive

    What was done was merely a Liberal interpretation of ethics.

    Rural folk expect this Bitch to get elected again.
    They are almost giving up HOPE.
