WATCH: Wynne 'concerned' about OPG culture

The premier reacts to the Auditor General's report

The Premier says she's concerned about the culture at OPG, the day after the Auditor General's annual report revealing sky high salaries, questionable expenses, and more than generous pensions was tabled.

Kathleen Wynne repeated over and over again that the Liberal government is now trying to cap public sector executive salaries and review pensions at agencies like the OPG. .

She says she can't comment on why changes haven't been made sooner since she wasn't in control. In question period she pointed to previous Progressive Conservative and NDP governments not taking action.

This comes as the Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli agreed it's time to apologize to Ontarians, only saying he's sorry for the information in the report.

Chiarelli maintains there has been a transformation happening at OPG over the last few years. He wouldn't say if more people need to be let go from OPG.

    I have had people at work that had to stand and face the music for the incompetencies of his predecessors and co-workers.

    I came to him after the meeting to thank him for at least showing up. He earned my respect in that way.

    I see similarities with Wynne. At least she is putting herself forward to face the ire of the public.

    All the same, she needs to be more than "concerned" at this.

    When you've been the government for three terms now, there is a limit to what you can do to blame previous governments. The Liberals have been doing that since day one when they got elected and they continue to do so long after the PCs and NDP had been out of office. They are completely disingenuous and incapable of taking responsibility.

    Here goes ...

    I am the Liberal government, I "steal" from you to save a few seats, I let a man to be almost beaten to death while I instruct the police to simply watch, I waste billions on health only to see it all wasted with nothing to show for it, I institute all-day kindergarten even though there's no evidence it has any value, just so I can appease teachers, I force you and your next 2 generations to pay for my hair-brained "green" energy scheme, the "green" referring to decades of gross overpayment the taxpayers will fork out, etc.

    And she has the audacity to be "concerned" about OPG. They only mimicked the cancer that is the Ontario Liberal party.

    She must think us complete fools!
