WATCH: What's next for gas plants committee?

Opposition question transparency of government on the issue

A majority Liberal government may mean you'll hear less about opposition triggering an election when but it also sets the stage for the end of the gas plant committee investigation into the scandal.

This, despite the premier vowing to be open and transparent on the matter.

While Kathleen Wynne has said she would strike up the committee again, she also stressed it would be to write a report on their findings. So you won't necessarily hear from the witnesses opposition parties have wanted to testify before the election campaign began.

Interim Tory Leader Jim Wilson doesn't believe the premier is being transparent as she claims to be in this situation.

NDP leader Andrea Horwath is skeptical on how the gas plant investigation will move forward.

Because the government has a majority, it has the most seats on this committee, meaning it can control how things progress.

The OPP continues its investigation into the deletion of government documents and emails.

Police documents show their investigation is focused on former chief-of staff to Dalton McGuinty, David Livingston, who faces criminal charges. He's alleged to have brought in another staff member's tech-savvy boyfriend Peter Faist to wipe information from government computers.

    At this point, do we even need an inquiry? I mean, Wynne SAID she was sorry; surely that should be good enough for anyone!

    Besides, they have a majority for the next four years. The billion dollars that were wasted on the gas plants are going to be the LEAST of our worries.

      @Next stop: Rock bottom We just had an election and the consensus was that Ontario does not care how the Liberals robbed us and how much they stole. Why continue the charade. Lets just cancel the inquiry and give the Liberals credit for fooling the Ontario voters.

    Ontario voters --- Dumb, dumber, dumbest! Just as McGuinty gave the green light for natives to violently beat citizens without fear of apprehension so too have the majority of Ontario voters given the Liberal party the green light to "steal", mismanage, waste billions, and bribe unions to the point of ruining our economy.
