Forget Rob Ford, Ontario's Tories say Kathleen Wynne acted more like the mayor of Toronto than the premier in the days after the massive ice storm which crippled parts of the region.

Hundreds of thousands of people were without power.

PC energy critic Lisa MacLeod points to Wynne giving out baskets of food and grocery store gift cards to effected Toronto residents. She is also critical of the premier dealing with Toronto's Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly instead of Ford in the aftermath of the storm.

NDP energy critic Peter Tabuns says the province should have been better prepared, both in planning and having infrastructure which could withstand extreme weather like that.

The Premier has defended her actions, noting the province needed to do something to help residents.

The grocery gift cards were handed out to residents in Toronto last week. Other parts of the GTA are giving them out this week.
