Statement by Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath on OPP charges for more top Liberals

Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath issued the following statement on OPP charges for more top Liberals 

"Ontarians have every reason to be disappointed by the news that more top Liberal aides to the Premier’s Office are being charged by the OPP. People expect better from government. This government has grown increasingly out of touch, preferring to put its own interests ahead of those of Ontarians.

The Premier promised that the corruption of the gas plants was over, but still refuses to accept responsibility for decisions that she helped to make at the cabinet table. Ontarians are aware that charges have also been laid against a Liberal operative in the Sudbury by-election scandal and more may yet be pending. 

Ontarians deserve a government that holds itself to the highest ethical standards and puts the public interest first – a government for all Ontarians"
