Ford should listen to Ontarians says Vanthof - 2019-06-05
Premier Doug Ford should listen to a growing number of Ontarians, that now includes the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, calling on him to stop his multi-million dollar Beer Store scheme, and focus on the vital services that Ontarians need today, said NDP Deputy Leader and Timiskaming-Cochrane MPP John Vanthof during a recent session of question period.
In a press release Vanthof stated "the president and CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (recently) wrote to the minister of finance concerning the government's proposal to rip up the contract with the Beer Store and said "breaking a legitimate contract is a short-sighted approach."
"Does the minister agree or is he now dismissing the entire Ontario Chamber of Commerce as "beer insiders?" Vanthof asked the minister of finance.
