“Twenty six years ago, Canada helped to liberate Kuwait during the first Gulf War.  Our nation sent a three-ship naval task group (consisting of HMCS Athabaskan, HMCS Terra Nova and HMCS Protecteur), CF-188s and other air assets as part of Operation Friction.  The joint task force was commanded by St. Thomas’ own Commodore Kenneth Summers.     “Thank you to all Ontarians who served as part of the 4,000...

“Almost a century has passed since the people of Estonia established a sovereign and independent state.    “The path has not been an easy one as Estonians lived for many decades under Soviet rule.  I am proud that Canadians were welcoming to Estonians fleeing the horror of communism.  They came to Canada seeking freedom and a better life.  It is why Toronto is home to the largest community of Eston...

The following are Ontario PC Leader’s remarks from the debate surrounding a motion condemning Islamophobia at Queen’s Park:   “Madam Speaker, I’m proud to rise in support of this motion today condemning islamophobia. Simply put, all forms of hate and discrimination against people of any faith, including Muslims, is wrong. Hate is hate. “This is a serious problem that must be addressed head on. We have see...

QUEEN'S PARK - Today, the Ontario government tabled new legislation targeting human sex trafficking, much of which was proposed as part of Bill 17, the Saving the Girl Next Door Act, introduced by MPP Scott back on February 16, 2016.   “My Private Member’s Bill was a culmination of hard work done by the police, service providers and survivors of human sex trafficking. I'm happy to see that the government is acting on the r...

“The Ontario PC Caucus was glad to see that all three parties joined together to pass a bill ending winter disconnections, because as we have always said, there is no monopoly on a good idea. Unfortunately, this comes after far too many families and seniors were forced to suffer in the cold without power because the Wynne Liberals dragged their feet and played political games.    “The Wynne Liberals never had to jam winter...

QUEEN’S PARK – After visiting Sault Ste. Marie as a part of his second annual Northern Ontario driving tour last week, Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown brought the story of F.J. Davey Home, a local long term care home, to the floors of the Legislature.    “I want the Liberals to be aware of F.J. Davey Home in Sault Ste. Marie. Their hydro bill has gone up 39 per cent over one year – that’s an additional $1...

QUEEN’S PARK – Today, Ontario PC Energy Critic Todd Smith announced his plans to table a Private Member’s Bill on winter disconnections on Tuesday afternoon, the first day the Legislature sits again following the winter break. Smith will move that unanimous consent be granted and that the bill immediately pass into law.   “Minister Thibeault could immediately issue a directive ending these heartless winter disconnec...
February 16, 2017

“Winter disconnections are an unacceptable practice that the government has the ability and responsibility to stop. The Minister of Energy has the capability to issue a ministerial directive stopping this practice for good today, but instead he seems far more interested in playing political games. Instead of hiding behind legislation as an excuse for his failure to do his job, Minister Thibeault should immediately issue a directive today en...

“The Auditor General, Bonnie Lysyk, has shown a prudent and responsible approach to ensuring the government follows the letter of the law in recording assets and revenues.   “The fact is, the Government cannot lawfully use the surpluses of two pension plans to balance its budget until it has agreement from the plans’ co-sponsors (OPSEU and the Ontario Teachers’ Federation).   “There is still no evidence...

“Across the province, families and seniors are freezing in the cold because they can’t afford to pay their skyrocketing electricity prices. The Wynne Liberals have always had the ability to provide instant relief to those freezing in the cold by simply issuing a directive. Instead this government ignored the issue. “The Liberals have no problem issuing ministerial directives when it comes to lining the pockets of thei...

QUEEN’S PARK – Premier Wynne’s government is once again withholding key information about the state of Ontario’s finances, Nipissing MPP and Finance Critic Vic Fedeli stated today.   The Fiscal Transparency and Accountability Act requires the Minister of Finance to release updated quarterly information on Ontario’s finances. This includes updated information about the major components of government r...

Yesterday, Barrie’s Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) revealed it was forced to find $4.4 million in savings to balance their 2017-18 budget. While the hospital was successful in finding $1.6 million in efficiencies, skyrocketing energy costs and the Liberal Government’s failure to adequately fund Ontario hospitals means that the jobs of 22 RVH employees are at risk.    “This is the third year in a row ...

TORONTO – Today, Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown called on the Wynne Liberal Government to immediately stop the hiring of 84 new expensive health care vice-presidents, and instead re-direct that funding into frontline health care. “Kathleen Wynne’s obsession with bloating the Queen’s Park bubble continues,” said Brown. “Her new experiment of extending bureaucracy right across Ontario with regional medical bure...

QUEEN’S PARK - Today, Ontario PC Energy Critic Todd Smith demanded that the Wynne Liberals stop hiding Hydro One salaries from the public, and publish them simultaneously with this year’s Sunshine List of public sector salaries over $100,000. If no action is taken, MPP Smith will introduce a Private Member’s Bill to stop the secrecy and put Hydro One salaries back on the Sunshine List through amendments to th...

QUEEN’S PARK – Today, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce released a report entitled Ontario Economic Report, 2017. The report revealed that only 24 per cent of businesses have confidence in the province’s economy. Since Premier Kathleen Wynne first took office in 2013, business confidence in the provincial economy has been cut in half from 48 per cent.      The collapsing confidence in the handling of Onta...

“The Ontario PC Party unequivocally supports natural gas expansion in Ontario. Unfortunately today’s announcement is more talk and no action. “For years the Wynne Liberals promised $230 million for the expansion of natural gas without spending a nickel, and now they’ve announced they’re slashing that program by $130 million. We are tired of announcements and re-announcements by this government. "What’s more, ...

TORONTO - Today, the Ontario PCs announced their plans to launch a review into how decisions surrounding public sector executive compensation are made if they form government in 2018. ‎ “Last year we learned Hydro One CEO is being paid $4 million a year, and now it’s OPG and Metrolinx executives receiving massive pay hikes. This is just the tip of the iceberg,” said MPP Michael Harris, the Ontario PC Caucus’ Tran...

“Black History Month in Canada is a time to recognize the history and legacy of Canadians of African and Caribbean descent and to celebrate their many important contributions to our society.   “Black Canadians have continued to build on the legacy of courage, strength, and perseverance that was forged in the face of adversity.  Individuals like Richard Pierpoint (a former slave and War of 1812 hero), Viola Desmond &nb...
