Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli was more than pleasantly surprised to find Ontario’s budget officer released a report backing up his third edition of Focus on Finance, which finds a province struggling to stay afloat on red ink.
Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli doesn’t buy recent projections that show 28 per cent of Ontario’s power will come from wind, solar or biofuel by 2040.
And if those projections do come about, Fedeli said Monday, “I can’t begin to imagine the cost.
“It’s pie in the sky and it’s already been blown out by the experts.”
“The Ring of Fire was discovered almost a decade ago now so obviously we have had plenty of time to do it right,” says Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli.
The following letter is addressed Michael Gravelle, minister of Northern Development and Mines.
I’m sure you’re aware that two days ago, 25 cars of an Ontario Northland freight train derailed near North Bay just off Highway 63 near Peninsula Road.
Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli continues to call on the Ontario government to change its mind on drug costs for senior citizens.
There’s a giant black hole in the Sunshine List this year, say opposition politicians, who are outraged the sell-off of Hydro One means it’s no longer subject to legislation requiring the salaries of all public servants making more than $100,000 be made public.
“This is the glaring reality that despite the fact that taxpayers own 85% of Hydro One, we don’t have any access to all of the salaries of all of the staff, and that’s a gaping hole in this year’s release,” said Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli.
MPP Vic Fedeli said the federal budget — which also forecasts a deficit approaching $30 billion this year, three times higher than (Prime Minister) Trudeau promised — was a case of lockup letdown for Ontario.
“There was nothing special” for the transit-hungry province despite (Premier) Wynne’s political efforts on the prime minister’s behalf, Fedeli said.
Proposed changes to the Ontario Drug Benefit Program will make it even tougher for seniors already struggling to pay their bills.
North Bay senior Bonnie Beam admits she only turns the heat on in her bathroom because the cost of hydro is “astronomical.
Beam was speaking at a media conference at Vic Fedeli’s constituency office, where the Nipissing MPP vowed to stand up for seniors at Queen’s Park.
“I am demanding the (Kathleen) Wynne government backtrack on proposed changes to seniors’ drug benefits contained in the 2016 budget.”
You can tax all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot tax all the people all the time…Vic Fedeli is a master number-cruncher. More importantly, he’s able to sift through the budget gobbledygook.
Vic Fedeli revealed the details of an LCBO Request for Proposal during Question Period Monday as he quizzed Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa.
