Premier Dad calls it quits

- October 15th, 2012

mcguintyPremier Dad has called it a day and will soon retire to sit with his smokeless pipe while wearing his enviro slippers.

What to make of this?

Well obviously it is a shocker not only that he resigned but the timing and the prorogation that went with it.

That he shut down the legislature and quit just days after 20,000 pages of documents related to a scandal we handed over is likely telling.

What will be found in those documents?

This all relates to political interference in the placement of electrical generating stations that were supposed to be in Oakville and Mississauga, Liberal ridings. To save seats the political operatives made the decision to move those plants at great cost to the taxpayer.

So will those documents show that McGuinty had a hand in this and he left to avoid being caught while in office?

Or did the documents reveal actions by his people that he could no longer stomach?

This story isn’t over.

    Did somethings right but did a lot more wrong

    Now that Warren Kinsella has announced that he led the Liberal campaign in 2011, I wonder if Brian will ask Warren what he knew of the Gas Generating plant deals? Or will everyone give Warren a free pass on his possible involvement?

    My guess the documents will show too much, but he prorogued parliament – isn’t that a a capital crime. Or is that only if you are a conservative.

    There has to be more episodes forthcoming of, “As My Stomach Turns”. We need to have closure with the bad guys being caught, charges laid, and the private tax paying citizens living happily ever after.

  5. Stephen Smith says:

    That prorogation thing seems to be catching.

    I believe that Priemere Dad has given this Province/Country the
    MOST CORRUPT government in our history. In typical Liberal fashion he has blamed every one else for the mess HE has created. I sincerely hope criminal charges are pending for the core leaders of this sorry excuse of a government… Steve O

    I have mixed feelings about “the great McGuinty’s” snap decision to resign.

    First off, I’m ecstatic – elated that the kleptocrat scourge that has plagued Ontario for a decade is leaving, elated that his legislature is prorogued (any day they don’t sit is a day they can’t steal more from us) – but I’m also wary. NO politician voluntarily concedes power and authority – unless he is just a step ahead of the sword of justice. I suspect the green energy pork scandals are just the tip of the iceberg and McGuinty is fleeing an “Ad-scam” sized criminal investigation that will bring down the party.

    Again, I’m elated at the thought of this second “Librano” klepto junta being vanquished to political obscurity by a malfeasance scandal so big they will forever be branded as a party of crooks (like their federal counterparts). However, I chill at the thought of the wasted, mismanaged and misappropriated public funds by this corrupt political cabal – and the fact none of the political elite ever see a day in jail for their crimes.

    I suspect the Ontario Liberals are toast. Dolton was a dimwit but he was the brightest knob in a sack of dull knobs – even the bumbling, timorous Hudak should be able to replace this lot. We can only pray for that deliverance from a decade of kleptonomics and oppressive ideological governing.
