Finance critic slams Wynne over her comments regarding the ONTC

Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli says Premier Kathleen Wynne is a hypocrite.  Fedeli watched Wynne tour the Ontario Northland facilities in North Bay last Friday where she talked about the importance of transportation and communication in the north.

Her comment flabbergasted him.   Fedeli says the Liberals tore Ontario Northland apart.

He says they took away the Northlander, sold Ontera, the communications link of the ONTC at a $60-million loss, and then adds Wynne has the gall to come to North Bay and tell northerners how important transportation and communication are.   Fedeli says four years ago when the Liberals wanted to liquidate the ONTC, they said it was to save $260-million.

He says the only reason why all of Ontario Northland wasn’t sold off was because the Auditor General said the dismantling costs would amount to $820-million.   Fedeli says Wynne’s trip to Ontario Northland was an attempt to re-write history where her government almost destroyed the agency.
