Ontario taxpayers are on the hook for up to 1.1 billion dollars
for the Liberal government’s decisions to cancel two gas plants in
Oakville and Mississauga.
Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk yesterday reported the cost of
killing the Oakville gas plant was between 675 million and 810
million dollars — not the 40 million the Liberals had claimed.
Add that to the 275 million tab for shutting the partially-built
Mississauga gas plant and the total bill is between 950 million and
1.1 billion dollars.
Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott says the Liberals’ attempts to conceal the true cost can only be described as devious. He wants Premier Kathleen Wynne to resign.
N-D-P Leader Andrea Horwath says the Liberals were more worried
about saving seats in the 2011 election than they were in what their
decisions would cost.
The former Canadian astronaut who gained a global audience with his musical performances
in space will be taking on a new job as professor of aviation at the University of Waterloo.
Chris Hadfield’s first task on campus will be assisting research into why some astronauts get

elderly people prone to falling.
The school announced the appointment of the
guitar-playing ex-astronaut, who retired in July shortly after
getting back from five months on the International Space Station.
During the mission, Hadfield became the first Canadian commander
of the space station and performed more than 130 science experiments.
