Conservatives can’t get it done unless it’s cash for access: NDP

QUEEN’S PARK — Official Opposition NDP Leader Marit Stiles responded to a troubling revelation by The Trillium that the Ford Conservatives have received over $151,000 in donations from directors and executives of public college-private partnerships:

“The Ford Conservatives can’t get it done on housing. They can’t get it done on health care. They can’t get it done on cost of living. What they have done very well is foster a sketchy, cash-for-access culture where companies, speculators and personal friends of the Premier get richer at the expense of Ontarians.

That the PC party and the Minister of Colleges and Universities’ own riding association have directly benefited from the public college-private partnerships at the heart of our post-secondary crisis is further proof this government can’t be trusted.

The Premier and the Minister owe Ontarians an explanation.”
