Statement from Ontario PC Finance Critic Vic Fedeli on the sentencing of David Livingston in the gas plants scandal

“Over the last 15 years there has been a pattern of political corruption in this Liberal government. They consistently put their political self-interests and their insider friends ahead of the hard-working Ontario taxpayer. 

“It’s upsetting and angering when a senior operative in the Premier’s office is brought before the court and sentenced to four months in prison.

“Struggling Ontario taxpayers have waited seven long years for answers on how $1.1 billion of their hard-earned money could be wasted to save a few seats in an election. Today the Ontario justice system ran its course, but no sentence is going to return the money that was thrown away.

“With the gas plants’ court case coming to a close, we are worried about the waste and political corruption the next Liberal scandal will reveal.”
