Premier Wynne willing to testify about cancelled gas plants

Premier Kathleen Wynne is willing to testify before a legislative committee about the cancellation of two gas plants.

Her office says the premier will work with the opposition to review the gas plants at the committee level so that the legislature can be productive.

The statement says Wynne believes it’s important that the information about the cancellations be released.

The cancellations of the Oakville and Mississauga power plants will cost taxpayers at least 230 million dollars.

Wynne has already asked the auditor general to add the cancelled gas plant in Oakville to his current probe of the Mississauga project.

The premier’s office issued the statement after the Progressive Conservatives said they’d call her and her predecessor Dalton McGuinty at the first opportunity.

As M-P-Ps, Wynne and McGuinty aren’t obligated to testify before the all-party committee.
