McGuinty experiences for “first time” what it’s like to be a minority!

Posted: October 3, 2012 in Uncategorized

Dalton and Gang have pretty well had it their own way for so long with the taxpayers debit card without any oversight that NOW that they have had to answer to the “majority opposition” on Bentley’s contempt charges, they seem to be indignant that anyone would have the nerve, let alone the power to even “question them”!

Get over it Dalt…………………this is the way you will be treated until you decide to run away and hide under some “green financed” leather chair that you’ve set up for your future gig!

Contempt is not only being shown by MPP’s in Parliament, the majority of Ontario citizens are very “contemptuous” of your actions to destroy this Province for over 9 years!

Suck it up and get used to it!

McGuinty, not Bentley, should bear the blame

CHRISTINA BLIZZARD - McGuinty, not Bentley, should bear the blame

TORONTO – Premier Dalton McGuinty was his best theatrical self Tuesday, abruptly changing his itinerary to hold a festival of indignation about the Tory/NDP contempt motion against his Energy Minister Chris Bentley.

The two opposition parties wanted to end debate and send the matter directly to committee. McGuinty put out a statement late Monday night, postponing a scheduled event, saying the government was “blindsided,” by the closure motion, which prevented one-third of MPPs – including the premier himself – from speaking to the matter.

Tuesday morning, McGuinty was in high dudgeon, invoking the likes of John Diefenbaker and Bill Davis as he asked the two opposition leaders to allow a free vote on the motion censuring Bentley.

“In the 220-year history of our legislature, no House has ever voted to find a fellow member in contempt, let alone impose a punishment for contempt,” McGuinty said.

Well, hello?

In 220 years, no government has so blatantly and wantonly piddled $230 million down the drain to scrap two power plants in order to save two Liberal seats.

The contempt motion relates to documents relating to the cancellation of the Oakville gas plant.

McGuinty’s campaign team cancelled plants in Mississauga and Oakville purely for political advantage.

The premier tried to turn the contempt motion on the opposition parties.

“These attacks, these threats, this heavy-handed, unprecedented process – using the full force of the legislature against one MPP – these are decidedly not in keeping with the standards and traditions we seek to uphold,” he told reporters.

Oh, and just what “standards” and “traditions” would those be?

That Liberals have the divine right to squander tax dollars at will? They have the right to give untendered contracts to their partisan buddies – and get away with it?

That they have the right to throw away $1 billion on an eHealth boondoggle?

They waste hundreds of millions of public dollars on an outrageous plan to privatize the air ambulance system – and they’re not supposed to be held accountable?

Finally, now we have a minority government, the other two parties have the clout to actually call the government to account for this disgraceful spending on gas plants – and according to McGuinty that’s “heavy-handed.”

I don’t think so.

This hissy fit is uncharacteristic for McGuinty.
