“Today, we’re responding to Kathleen Wynne’s lawsuit with our own statement of defence.
Kathleen Wynne would have you believe her career in government started one year ago.
The Ontario PC Party is calling for Kathleen Wynne to protect documents that could shed light on the role her office played role in the gas plant cover-up, Ontario PC MPP Lisa MacLeod said today.
“Last week, we sent notice that we would defend ourselves against the Premier’s lawsuit,” said MacLeod. “Now, we want to make sure the Premier and her team retains the documents we need to get to the truth in this matter. This is a government with a pattern of making documents disappear.”
New documents show that the Wynne government chose to mislead the public with fake deficit numbers, said Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak.
“We’ve got an extraordinary case of fiscal mismanagement happening in the province, based on false numbers.”
Vu que la première ministre a décidé d’entamer des poursuites contre l’opposition officielle, le parti PC Ontario confrontera la première ministre Kathleen Wynne avec tous les outils qu’ils dispose, affirmait la députée PC Ontario, Lisa MacLeod aujourd’hui.
« Cette poursuite est une perte de temps, initiée par une première ministre sur la défensive qui devrait plutôt concentrer ses efforts sur l’emploi, » avouait Lisa MacLeod. « Si elle s’entête à poursuivre cette rancune personnelle en cour, nous amènerons notre cause sur la place publique. Nous ne démordrons pas. »
After the Premier filed a lawsuit against members of the Official Opposition, the Ontario PC Party will fight Premier Kathleen Wynne with every tool at its disposal, Ontario PC MPP Lisa MacLeod said today.
“This suit is a waste of time by a Premier on the defensive, when she should be focused on jobs,” said MacLeod. “If she insists on pursuing this personal grudge in the court of law, we’ll prosecute our case in the court of public opinion. We will not back down.”
“The Liberal Party of Ontario continues to fuel its overspending and mismanagement by adding fees to hydro bills – that needs to end now,” said Ontario PC Finance Critic Vic Fedeli.
Fedeli and Ontario PC Energy Critic Lisa MacLeod commented on Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli’s announcement that the Liberals will phase out the Debt Retirement Charge (DRC), a fee initially imposed to pay off debts collected by the former Ontario Hydro.
The Ontario PC Party is launching a television ad linking Premier Kathleen Wynne to the $1.1 billion Liberal gas plant scandal, Campaign Manager Ian Robertson said today.
“While Kathleen Wynne attacks us with lawyers, we intend to respond with the facts,” said Robertson. “While the Liberals want to pursue a legal opinion, we will prosecute our case in the court of public opinion.”
“If we have learned anything about the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals, it is that they have a proven track record of costing the province our manufacturing jobs,” said Ontario PC MPP Jane McKenna.
McKenna made the comments following the news that Ontario lost 8,000 manufacturing jobs last month. March also marked the 87th consecutive month that Ontario’s unemployment rate was above the national average.
Today’s statement from the Finance Minister is more proof this government has no plan to reduce the deficit, which means we will see further job losses and it will threaten the things we care about, like health care and education, said Ontario PC Finance Critic Vic Fedeli.
“Quite frankly, it’s very difficult, given what we’ve seen from this government, to believe anything they say regarding Ontario’s finances,” said Fedeli.
As fallout from the Liberal gas plant scandal cover up continues, Ontario PC Energy Critic Lisa MacLeod is calling for Ontario’s Chief Information Officer, David Nicholl, to step aside.
“He opened the door to the hacker who was given unfettered access to the Premier’s office and to public records, according to the OPP.”
