NDP demands director of Vaughan Working Families appear before Government Agencies committee - 2020-02-13
The NDP is demanding that a Ford-appointed LCBO board member appear before the Government Agencies committee after it emerged that he is also the director of an organization that ran full page anti-teacher ads in four major newspapers.
NDP critic for ethics and accountability Taras Natyshak is calling on Quinto Annibale, director of Vaughan Working Families, to appear before the committee for questioning, saying they did not get enough answers when he appeared last year.
"Mr. Annibale appeared before committee last year where my colleagues grilled him on his conservative connections but it's clear now that we didn't get to the bottom of that story and get the full story from Mr. Annibale," Natyshak said at a press conference at Queen's Park Thursday. "If Mr. Annibale is going to sit on a public board, control public assets and collect a public pay cheque, he needs to answer questions about his connections to these attack ads."
