The recent report by Ontario‘s Auditor General exposed wild spending of grant money by the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration. The minister in charge was Mike Colle, since being appointed to this ministry in 2005. Now he has resigned in disgrace. At least that was a step in the right direction.
 
Too bad that this McGuinty Liberal had his priorities all screwed up.

 

It is also painfully apparent that Mike Colle, one of McGuinty’s Liberals, has his spending priorities all screwed up. He did, after all, approve giving the Ontario Cricket Association $1 Million taxpayers’ dollars. That’s about 30 times more than what the long term care home received for that oh-so-important diagnostic medical equipment. And the funny part is, the Ontario Cricket Association only asked for $150,000. So this means the Ontario Cricket Association was more fiscally prudent than Mike Colle, one of McGuinty’s fine Liberals.

 

Perhaps cricket, and to be sure, cricket is a fine game, is more useful than health. It certainly is more fun than being poked and prodded by diagnostic medical equipment.
