We can’t forget who “enabled” this “Liberal rape and pillage of Ontario!”
Guilt by association is as severe as the real perpetrators of the crime and should be included in any Judicial Inquiry that is generated by a legal authority, if one exists anymore in Ontario!
Andrea Horwath seems to be more interested in having her face and her Party’s name splashed all over the front pages of mainstream media than actually doing her “elected duty” which is to represent the PEOPLE, not the dogma of her Party.
These people at Queen’s Park have forgotten one important tenent of their obligation as an elected official: They are PUBLIC SERVANTS!

How much did it cost to scrap two generating plants in Oakville and Mississauga?
And New Democratic Party Leader Andrea Horwath is so outraged by that waste that she’s going to … well … do nothing and support Premier Kathleen Wynne and her disgraceful government.
Yep, Horwath will hold her breath and stamp her feet — but she won’t do what it takes to dump the Liberals and call an election.
The province’s new auditor general, Bonnie Lysyk, delivered a damning report Tuesday on costs associated with scrapping the Oakville plant.
She estimates moving the plant will cost around $815 million — if all the savings that are projected actually happen. Add that to the $275 million Jim McCarter, the previous auditor general, estimated it would cost to scrap the Mississauga plant, and the numbers are a staggering $1.1 billion.
So what’s it going to take to get Horwath so riled up that she actually does something?
It’s all very well for her to stand in front of us, wring her hands and tell us how many MRIs this could have bought. As long as she props us this Liberal government, she’s going to give her tacit support to this mind-blowing stupidity.
There really was only one question for Horwath at her news conference.
When she’s going to pull the plug?
“The bottom line is there are no guarantees for this government. It’s really obvious that they’re more interested in their own political well-being than anything else,” she told reporters.
Well, the Tories have a non-confidence motion in the works. The Liberals aren’t likely to call it, but if Horwath joined forces with the PCs and demanded it be voted on, it might see light of day.
Instead, Horwath kept yammering on about waiting for the committee process to conclude.
Oh, come on.
What more do we need to know?
We’ve heard about the deleted e-mails. Staffers in former premier Dalton McGuinty’s office quit their jobs — and deleted everything from their inboxes that might implicate them in this scandal.
What else do we need to know before Horwath finally does us all a favour and forces an election?
