PCs demand emails from Wynne and top bureaucrats in $15B deficit investigation

The sweeping call for the documents came Thursday morning as the committee kicked off hearings into the $15 billion deficit the PCs say the Liberals left behind. Ford ordered the creation of the committee last week, saying: “We’re not going to let Kathleen Wynne and her cronies walk away from their $15-billion scandal.”

‘LIED TO ALL OF US’: Liberals to be held to account for $15B deficit, Ford says

The Ontario Liberals’ accountability for the “cover up” of a $15-billion deficit didn’t end on election day, Premier Doug Ford says.

Ford announced his government will seek to create a select committee to investigate “Liberal waste and scandal” with the power to call witnesses, compel documents and gather evidence.

What? No summary execution?

Liberals dug Ontario into current fiscal mess

The origins of the financial train wreck that the Kathleen Wynne/Dalton McGuinty Liberals left for Premier Doug Ford and Ontario taxpayers to clean up, goes back a long way.

Friday’s report by the independent financial commission of inquiry released by Progressive Conservative Finance Minister Vic Fedeli, which said the Liberals’ real deficit for 2018-19 was $15 billion, not the $6.7 billion they claimed, is the tip of the iceberg.

The larger story is about 15 years of Liberal mismanagement of the province’s books.

BONOKOSKI: Cutting the Wynne Liberals’ belly fat is not brain surgery

It is time for Ontario Premier Doug Ford to start honing his knife and haul out the mops to deal with the blood off the floor.

With the Wynne Liberals leaving behind a staggering $15-billion deficit through account fiddling and shady coverup schemes first revealed by Ontario Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk but denied by the culprits who were reduced in the recent election to non-party status, there is no easy way out.

This is a fact Ontarians must face.

Rex Murphy: The Green Energy Act is dead. Let that be a warning to green politicians

…The Green Energy and Green Economy Act, which the Ford government announced Thursday it would officially cancel, was one of the most monumental government follies of our time. It was a hydra-headed monster of regulations and fiat that bludgeoned Ontario’s rural communities, stripped Ontario’s municipalities of every right to the slightest participation in their own planning, placed a darkling pall over the manufacturing industry, and imposed the highest electricity costs in all North America on some of Ontario’s lowest-income citizens.

GOLDSTEIN: Good riddance to toxic Green Energy Act

By scrapping the Green Energy Act, passed by former Liberal premier Dalton McGuinty in 2009, Premier Doug Ford is ending one of the worst legislative disasters ever inflicted on the people of Ontario.

Ford ran on repealing the GEA and the end of this appalling legislation cannot come soon enough.

The GEA is largely responsible for Ontario’s skyrocketing electricity prices.
