WATCH: Tories, NDP slam Wynne on promises of Open Government
Opposition parties at Queen's Park aren't buying the premier's vows to be more transparent.
Tim Hudak says "that ship has sailed long ago."
The Tory leader points to scandals like eHealth, Ornge and the gas plant cancellations which cost taxpayers billions of dollars.
When Hudak was pressed on the premier's plan for transparency, PC House leader Jim Wilson snickered as he looked on in the news conference.
He later explained the Liberals are not a transparent government, claiming this new panel is an attempt to "bluff the public."
On if he thinks that will work, he says Liberals are good at fooling the public but knows those in his riding of Simcoe-Grey want the Liberals out.
Meantime, NDP leader Andrea Horwath pressed Kathleen Wynne on her commitment to openness, questioning whether or not the province needs another panel to advise government.
She underlined in Question Period that if Wynne was committed to transparency, she would agree to appear at the government committee looking into the gas plant cancellations.
Wynne says she has yet to receive an official invitation.
On transparency, Wynne maintained that a "commitment to open government is a belief I've always held."
