Selling Ontario by the pound
Well, that has to be the most bizarre press conference ever.
Tourism Minister Michael Chan and Finance Minister Dwight Duncan show up at a news conference at Queen’s Park to tell us Ontario Place will be sold off. Could be for condos. Could be for a casino.
We just have to trust them to do the right thing.
What’s not to trust? This is the government that brought us eHealth and the Ornge helicopter boondoggles. What could possibly go wrong with them selling off prime waterfront real estate?
Oh, wait a minute. That….
They arrived at the presser with no details of the plan. They seemed confused about which parts of the park will close. They couldn’t agree as to whether the Cinesphere would close or not.
John Tory, the guy who’s going to head the advisory panel wasn’t at the news conference.
It was, in short, a shambles.
Are the Liberals losing their touch?
