This could be probably the most expensive election ever held in North America to elect a Party that barely made it back into power after 8 years plus of disasters and scandals.
AND WE PAID FOR IT!
In order for this total LOSER PARTY to exist after that election in a minority position they had to enlist the aid of our other LOSER PARTY the NDP for assistance!
Of course this LOSER PARTY only has 18 seats in Queen’s Park so I assume anything that would allow them to be “front page news” even if it “added to the misery of the electorate” would be enough of an excuse to join in with the LOSERS all the way to the bottom of the barrel called Ontario politics!
Tom Adams a very long time ago forecasted correctly that this mess would cost us over a billion dollars, yet no mainstream media wanted to pick up on that realistic calculation!
There is nothing, absolutely nothing that can be said that is positive about either of these two LOSERS except that as each day closes we are one day closer to kicking their collective sorry arses out of the Pink Building!

It would be hard to imagine a report more damaging to the credibility of Ontario’s Liberal government than the one released Tuesday by Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk on its decision to cancel the Oakville gas plant.
First under former premier Dalton McGuinty, and later, under Premier Kathleen Wynne, the Liberals estimated the cost of cancelling this plant was $40 million.
Lysyk found it will cost up to $1.112 billion, with the most likely final figure being $815 million, after future savings and cost add-ons are factored in.
Even more devastating to Liberal credibility, Lysyk found that despite McGuinty’s insistence he had no idea of the costs of cancelling the Oakville plant, his office was directly responsible for decisions that dramatically increased those costs.
“On cancelling the Oakville plant, the Premier’s Office assured TCE (TransCanada Energy Ltd.) that it would be compensated for the full financial value of its contract for the Oakville plant,” Lysyk found, “instead of relying on protections in that contract that could have minimized the damages paid to the builder following cancellation.”
In other words, the Liberals were so desperate to cancel the politically unpopular Oakville plant leading up to the 2011 election, they wasted hundreds of millions of public dollars in order to do so.
