WATCH: Opposition pounce on Liberals over gas plant scandal

Both NDP and Tories want public release of gas plant documents

Opposition parties are calling on the Premier to make public the documents obtained by the OPP in the gas plant investigation.

This comes the day after the OPP served a court order at Queen's Park as part of its investigation into deleted documents and word that former Premier Dalton McGuinty was interviewed on the matter this spring.

Tory Energy Critic Lisa MacLeod says the only way to get to the bottom of the scandal is through a Judicial Inquiry under a new Progressive Conservative government. She stood by Queen's Park, maintaining the public can't trust Kathleen Wynne anymore.

In Mississauga, PC leader Tim Hudak peated those calls. He also wants for the release of documents since the public is stuck with the bill.

He says he doesn't believe Wynne's apologies.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath continued her accusations of corruption. She says when police are knocking on the doors of the legislature, it's clear the Liberals have got to go.

She says if elected premier, she will clean up Queen's Park.

The Mississauga and Oakville gas plant cancellations are expected to cost taxpayers $1.1 billion.

    The liberals are really desperate to sweep this under the rug, at least until they're voted back in, at which point it will no longer matter.. Because by the time the next election rolls around, the short sighted, short memory voter will have forgotten all about it.

    The libs don't need to worry, though. Liberal voters will vote liberal no matter what happens.

    Here's what needs to happen to every liberal voter.. They need to go to Caledonia and have the living crap beaten out of them by the natives there while the OPP (who are taking out ads supporting the liberals, btw) stand there and watch, while drinking their coffee.

    If they still feel like voting liberal after being beaten almost to death, then by all means.. fill your boots.

      @Angry Bill How about this PCs vote PC. Libs vote for Lib. NDs vote for ND and whatever the seat count. It is Hudak who should not have bashed the unions!

      @Angry Bill I like your idea,, Lib voters deserved to be bashed by the natives to drill some common sense into their thick skulls.. lol

      I can understand if the current Liberal government reneged on some election promises but when billion of dollars were wasted in those scandals

      No tax - Health tax(premium) - by Dalton
      NO HST - we got HST

      Ehealth
      oRnge
      Gas plants

      Wake up those that are voting Liberal..

    grandstanding by MacLoudmouth. playing politics.
    How much would of it had cost if Hudak had cancelled gas plants.
    MacLoudmouth should stop playing detective and just let the authorities do their job unimpeded without politicking

      @Sam IT WOULD HAVE COST THE WINNING PARTY $ 40 MILLION to cancel the gas plants AFTER the election, but that bastard McGuinty and his Liberal ministers (including Wynne) that signed the contract were too afraid of losing 2 seats, so they "stole" $ 1 Billion of our money (and yours if you care).

      Have you been hiding under a rock that you didn't know this as it's been reported frequently enough.

      To borrow a phrase from a Jack Nicholson movie, the Liberals of Ontario "can't handle the truth".

    The Liberals stole and wasted over 1 billion dollars, and the NDP helped keep them in power for months after the fact. Both parties have demonstrated an utter lack of responsibility, of respect for the citizens of Ontario, and of capacity to govern.

    The choice is clear: Hudak for Premier!

      @Jack vote Liberal even with their faults. Hudak and his tea party policies will just take the province down a dark path like the Harris years.
      in some ways i wish Hudak gets in with a minority so we can slap him around some more. his reign wouldn't last a year. PC's don't have a party that would prop up him up or work with him on a budget
