PCs promise judicial inquiry on gas plants if they form government
The Progressive Conservatives say they'll call a judicial inquiry into the cancellation of 2 gas plants if they form the next government.
A senior Conservative source says they want a judge to find out what happened with the gas plants & whether there was any criminal wrongdoing.
The Liberals admitted last week that they'd found a 3rd batch of documents on the gas plants, after insisting that all relevant data was made public months ago.
The opposition don't believe that all the documents have been released, because there are still no files from the premier's office or the minister of energy.
They believe the cancelled plants have cost taxpayers a lot more than the $230-million the Liberals claim.
The opposition parties have accused the Liberals of cancelling the Oakville gas plant in 2010 & the Mississauga plant in the dying days of the 2011 election campaign to save Liberal seats.
