Today's editorial is scathing - Mismanagement, McGuinty Style:
Ontario taxpayers have a right to feel cheated by such grotesque mismanagement of their money. And to be angry. For years, the Liberals couldn't find the means to expand Cambridge Memorial Hospital, and even now Cambridge taxpayers have to sink more than $6 million of their own money into the venture. When the University of Waterloo agreed to build a pharmacy school in Kitchener, city taxpayers were stuck with the $30-million construction cost -- the province paid zero for that part of the project.
But the day after the Canadian Cricket Association asked for $150,000 in 2006, it was awarded a $1-million grant. That money was supposed to pay only for capital work. However, the Ontario Cricket Association, which ultimately got the $1 million, didn't need it all and invested $500,000 in a guaranteed investment certificate. Where were the government's priorities? Perhaps the citizens and politicians of Waterloo Region should wave cricket bats the next time they want help from McGuinty.
On anther note, congrats to the Record for the great new look on their website.
Oh, and their links work now too! Bravo!!!
