Nick McGrath must think we all just fell off the turnip truck!
We are supposed to believe that letting Humber Valley Paving off the hook by canceling the contract without penalty the day before Frank Coleman threw his hat in the ring to replace disgraced PC Premier Dunderdale was pure coincidence.
Why the rush to have the deputy minister of Transportation and Works terminate the contract that day - in writing and in the hands of Humber Valley - paving the way, perhaps, for Mr. Coleman to become McGrath's boss?
I am pleased with the Opposition Liberals for staying on this issue like a dog with a bone.
Through the Auditor General and the Public Accounts Committee, we have learned that this process was rushed, flawed and proper procedure was not followed.
If anything, I am even more confused about the process, and the authority provided to McGrath, from cabinet, to proceed with releasing the soon to be premier designates former company from $19 million in bonds related to incomplete projects.
stepped down from the board of directors for both Humber Valley
Paving and Humber Valley Aggregates and Asphalt, effective March 10th.
He announced his intention to seek the leadership on March 13th.
I am looking forward to a judicial inquiry into this whole mess. We have a right to know exactly what went on without the smoke and mirrors. An inquiry might be costly but the truth is more important. The Colemans should have to testify, under oath.
This promise alone is worth my vote in November
