David Orazietti does protest too much.
The northern Ontario MPP took a shot May 30th at Natalie Mehra, Director of the Ontario Health Coalition, in what his press release calls the “15-city fear mongering tour.”
Orazietti says Mehra is personally “taking every advantage to distort the truth.”
Of course, prior to the NDP holding their feet to the fire over passage of second reading of the budget bill, the McGuinty government had failed to hold its own public hearings on the budget, an unusual state of affairs particularly given the significant austerity package cobbled together by Finance Minister Dwight Duncan.
If we are to suddenly change directions, should the public not have a say in what transpires?
