Last year Premier Wynne and her 13 year old Ontario Liberal government told us the Pan Am Games came within in budget.
Today the Auditor General reported that was not the case.
But what’s a difference of $342 million these days?
In the end the AG said, “value…was obtained, but at a significantly higher cost to Ontario taxpayers than originally planned.”
Hey, the Hammer got a new stadium out of it, even though the botch ups continue today!
So what if bonuses of over $5 million were paid despite over budget. It’s hard to get good people.
It may be tolerable if you don’t factor in gas plant scandals, eHealth, Ornge helicopters, and the $37 billion the same AG said we overspent on their green energy plan.
Who knows how much the new Climate Change Action Plan is going to end up costing us by the time it ends up on the Auditor Generals desk.
The government once again dismisses the report and what she has to say.
If you can’t trust the provinces independent accountant who can we trust?
I truly believe the Premier has her heart in the right place.
But her single minded activist attitude and lack of respect for your hard earned money, is getting stale.
I’m Scott Thompson.
