6 0

Newstalk 1010 has learned the province will be introducing legislation which will strengthen accountability in the broader public sector.

Premier Kathleen Wynne and Minister of Government Services John Milloy will make the announcement Thursday morning.

The proposed legislation will focus on increasing accountability and transparency in government agencies. It will also strengthen oversight.

Government sources say there will be a focus on political accountability as well.

Since being in the Premier's post, Wynne has stressed a need for more government accountability.

The Liberals have already put in place a Financial Accountability Officer to consult on the province's finances and spending initiatives.

    Financial accountability from a Liberal? Don't make me laugh! This bill will be as toothless as an eighty-year-old hockey player.

    The Liberals and accountability??? That's like putting the fox in charge of the henhouse. There has never been, in the history of this country, a political party as corrupt as the Dalton Gang.

    Premier Wynne
    Its past time to come clean on the Solid Gold scandal

    You know the one.

    Dalton, Ms. Kitty and the other outlaws deliberately screwed a couple hundred investors at Lake Abitibi. Stabbed them in the back, threw them under the bus and left them to bleed out to the benefit of their favorite Indian band.

    MINERAL CLAIMS IN ONTARIO -- WORTHLESS

    Does anyone really believe that this "accountability" will really be done? This will be like the "missing" emails and answers re health care overspending.
