Ontario’s new Premier “should start off with a lie detector test”! …………..nice Province we live in ….. eh?

Posted: February 14, 2013 in Uncategorized

How much lower can this Province go before the whole population rises up and tells these buffoons at the tax payers banquet table to “Shut Up and Sit Down and Listen to What WE want!”

The ORNGE scandal seems to be picking up steam again after a rather quiet period before the announcement about Mazza’s expenses was just released in January.

Then yesterday it was announced that the Helicopter supplier in Italy had the police drop in on them and arrested the CEO on charges of bribery!

Today Frank Klees went after Kathleen Wynne, our new Premier and said he wanted her to get a lie detector test because she can’t recall specifics on ORNGE even though she sat on the Committee when it was formed.

His statement is as follows: “If she insists that as the campaign co-chair and as someone who sat at the cabinet table to approve this deal that she has no recollection, she may want to establish her credibility by submitting to one of those lie detector tests,” he said.

Someone in health ministry needs to take blame for Ornge

TORONTO – Frank Klees wants Premier Kathleen Wynne to take a lie detector test on Ornge.

The Newmarket-Aurora Tory MPP said Thursday he wants Wynne to agree to reconstitute the legislature’s public accounts committee and allow it to continue to probe the Ornge air ambulance scandal.

Klees, who early on sounded the alarm on Ornge, questioned Wynne’s assertion that she had no knowledge of the Ornge dealings — and questioned why Health Minister Deb Matthews was not only not demoted in the recent cabinet appointments but was promoted to deputy premier.

“There are far too many unanswered questions,” Klees told reporters.

“If she insists that as the campaign co-chair and as someone who sat at the cabinet table to approve this deal that she has no recollection, she may want to establish her credibility by submitting to one of those lie detector tests,” he said.

In a scathing report last year, provincial auditor general Jim McCarter slammed the government for not having more control over $700 million that was poured into the agency.

In emotional testimony to the public accounts committee last July, disgraced former Ornge CEO Chris Mazza talked nonchalantly about a $450,000 loan on top of his $1.4-million salary to buy a house because he was in “distress.”

He was combative about the hiring of a waterski instructor, Kelly Long, who became his girlfriend.

She rose quickly through the ranks of Ornge to become a vice-president.

Barely a day goes by without new revelations about Mazza’s expenses and the plundering of Ornge.

This week, Reuters reported executives with an Italian company involved in the controversial sale of helicopters to the air ambulance service are facing allegations of bribery in an Indian deal.

Worse, the mismanagement at Ornge may have been responsible for the death of patients when air ambulance service wasn’t available.

Coroner Dr. Andrew McCallum has appointed a review panel to look into deaths associated with Ornge between Jan. 1, 2006, and June 30, 2012, to probe whether lives could have been saved if things had been done differently.

Klees is right that someone needs to be held accountable.

No one in the vast health ministry bureaucracy has taken the blame.
