Statement from Ontario PC MPP Lisa Thompson on Ontario Tire Stewardship
Queen’s Park– The following is a statement from PC Environment and Cap-and-Trade Critic Lisa Thompson on the audit of Ontario Tire Stewardship.
“Today’s news in the Toronto Star demonstrates, once again, why we need to scrap each and every one of the Liberals’ eco-tax programs and recycling cartels.
“Rather than protecting our environment, Ontario Tire Stewardship has blown tire tax dollars on lavish stays at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier Hotel and fancy dinners of elk tenderloin, wild boar chops and cabernet sauvignon.
“The Liberals’ claim they want to address this situation, but Bill 151 has no guarantees that OTS will ever be shut down. We know we can’t trust the government’s word.
“To protect taxpayers, the Ontario PCs are calling on the government to establish a clear, legislated timeline to eliminate all Liberal eco-tax programs and recycling cartels, starting with OTS.”
