Ont on hook $275 million to cancel the Mississauga closing Oakville even more?

Minimize

THUNDER BAY, ON  ------  April 15, 2013  ------ Addtor general Jim McCarter releases scathing report on the Ontario Liberals’ decision to cancel a Mississauga power plant.

McCarter will pass judgment in a report this summer on the government’s claim that closing Oakville cost just $40 million, which opposition parties and industry observers say is closer to $800 million.

“Ontarians are now on the hook for at least $275 million to cancel the Mississauga gas plant – $85 million more than the amount originally cited by the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals,” said Fedeli. “These additional costs are an indictment of the Liberals’ cover-up and attempt to mislead taxpayers.”

Fedeli added that the Auditor General found that cancellation costs were higher than they should have been because the Liberals’ decision was politically motivated to save five seats.

While we finally know the cost of the Mississauga gas plant, the investigation is far from over, continued Fedeli, adding that the Liberals’ cover-up continues on the Oakville gas plant cancellation.

“Even though documents say otherwise, Premier Wynne continues to deny knowing anything about the Oakville cancellation. To make matters worse, the Liberals keep telling taxpayers that the cancellation will only cost $40 million, while independent energy experts estimate that it could cost over $800 million,” said Fedeli.

“From shutting down the Legislature, to withholding documents on three occasions, the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals have been attempting to skirt accountability. Taxpayers deserve to know who ordered the cancellations, how much they cost, and most importantly, who is now trying to cover them up.

“The McGuinty-Wynne Liberals still fail to recognize and acknowledge the severity of the hundreds of millions of dollars that they wasted to save five Liberal seats,” concluded Fedeli.

“It is clear that they can’t be trusted with taxpayers’ money.”
