The NDP and Tories are jumping all over the Liberals after the auditor general confirmed what both Opposition parties have said all along – which is selling the ONTC doesn’t save money. On Tuesday the auditor general said taking apart Ontario Northland will cost taxpayers at least $820-million plus the unknown costs. Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli has said from day one the fire sale of the ONTC would cost far more than the Liberals claimed. That’s echoed by Timiskaming-Cochrane MPP John Vanthof. Also Fedeli learned the auditor general gave the Liberals her numbers two weeks ago. A few days later northern development minister Michael Gravelle announced selling Ontario Northland was one of several options and outlined other scenarios like finding partners. Despite the findings the auditor general says the ONTC can’t continue in its current state something Gravelle has also said for some time. Gravelle also says he takes the findings seriously.
