Doug Ford's Ontario PC government spent millions of dollars buying face masks from an oil company connected to a secretive religious sect whose members previously helped fund right-wing political organizations.
Klondike Lubricants, an industrial bulk and retail oil company, received $1.94 million in public funds from the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services in May 2020, according to Ontario Government records.
"In May 2020, the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS) entered into a $1.94 million agreement with Klondike Lubricants Corp. for the provision of surgical masks. No further purchases from Klondike Lubricants have been made," a government spokesperson told PressProgress.
