QUEEN’S PARK – MPP for Guelph, Mike Schreiner, is calling for a full, independent public inquiry into the government’s Greenbelt giveaway.
“Ontarians deserve accountability from the government for their $8.3 billion Greenbelt scandal,” said Schreiner
“But ever since the Auditor General’s report was released, the Premier has repeatedly failed the accountability test.”
Public trust in the government has reached an all-time-low. Under the Premier’s watch, accountability and transparency have gone out the window in the name of favours to wealthy, well-connected elites.
Meanwhile, precious farmland and forests and wetlands are still being removed from the Greenbelt, and wealthy land speculators are still cashing in.
“Everyday Ontarians have been sidelined by a government that has repeatedly put donors and insiders before public good,” said Schreiner.
“It has become clear to me that the only way we’re going to find out what really happened between this government and those land speculators is to bring this investigation into broad daylight.”
