Gas Plant Inquiry Too Costly: Wynne
The premier-designate has shot down the idea of holding a public inquiry into the gas plant cancellation scandal.
Kathleen Wynne says she she wants all the information out there but doesn't want to spend millions of dollars in taxpayer money on the issue.
This comes days after NDP leader Andrea Horwath demanded an inquiry be called into the 2010 Oakville gas plant cancellation and the 2011 Mississuaga one.
Wynne says she's had a conversation with Horwath and hopes the government will come to understand all the information the opposition is looking for.
This comes at the Tories maintain the contempt motion against Energy Minister Chris Bentley will likely go forward. Progressive Conservative MPP Rod Jackson says if a committee to look into the issue of the gas plant cancellations and release of documents surrounding it isn't stricken after the thrown speech, opposition will continue to press to get answers.
