Meek and bubble heads? I don't think so. Maybe one or 2 of them, but I think most of them know exactly what's going I remember listening to Wynne statement about not having any knowledge of the planned cancellation of the gas plant contract, and remembered thinking right there and then she was so full of BS. The deceit that has always sourounded politics at all levels is getting worse. The financial losses have never been bigger.

With respect, I believe you are wrong.
Two arms length bodies are responsible for the supply and distribution of hydro energy. At the time ,
Hydro One has been the authority in the Province since immediately after the Second World War and transition from agrarian to industrial economy.
Ontario became the most successful Province in Canada.
The contracts for the two power generation plants in Missuassaga and Oakville were awarded
by Hydro One.
On the eve of the previous election, former Premier McGuinty ordered closure of the coal- burning generation plants, in response to serious pressure from former Mayor Hazel McCallion and despite the authority of Hydro One.
The order to cancel projects already being built was a repeat of the midnight shuffle of the previous election .
Politicians all over the Province gasped when that decision was announced. I doubt cabinet members were aware. There is no reason to believe it would have received support any more than it did from anyone outside Mississauga or Oakville. It was a truly shameful display of subservience.
The supply and distribution of power was not the responsibility of the Provincial Cabinet. It
cannot therefore be conclusively argued Premier Wynne was aware of that last minute calamitous decision.
I am not a fan of Ontario Liberals. Even less of Provincial Conservatives. There's more than enough
Valid criticism without making accusations that can't be proven.
The election was decided by Conservative Tim Hudak's unbelievable negative performance.
Not by anything the Liberals had going for them.
