Statement from Ontario PC MPP Steve Clark on the news that Premier Wynne will be testifying in the Sudbury bribery trials on September 13th

“For the first time in recent memory, a sitting Premier will be testifying in a trial resulting from police charges. It’s a sad day for the people of Ontario that they will be seeing their Premier as a witness on the stand in court.

“While Ontario’s Official Opposition will be hitting the ground running in the Legislature next week, holding the government accountable for Ontario’s hydro crisis, cuts to front-line health care services, and the loss of good-paying manufacturing jobs, Premier Wynne will be absent or distracted, preparing to testify in a court trial involving her most senior operatives. 

“Make no mistake; it is Liberal political corruption that will be on trial. Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals can’t be trusted to put the interests of the province ahead of their own. It is time for a government that puts the people of Ontario first, and works so that families pay less and get ahead.”
