MPP Thompson Questions Liberals on Disregard of Scientific Evidence


Queen’s Park – Earlier today, Lisa Thompson, MPP for Huron-Bruce, along with her colleague Todd Smith, MPP for Prince Edward-Hastings, questioned the Liberal government about their blatant disregard of scientific evidence that challenges their agenda of industrial wind turbine development.

This question comes after Joe Crowley, a Species at Risk Specialist, testified that he        “…expressed significant concerns…”, about the impact of a proposed wind project on threatened species at Ostrander Point. Despite this, the Liberals continue to push for its development and failed to answer for this behaviour during Question Period today.

“From cancelled gas plants, to e-health and Ornge, the Liberal name has become synonymous with scandal”, said Thompson, “in the Ostrander Point case, the government once again swept the facts under the rug”.
