How would you renovate a $400,000 home that you had just purchased? A new kitchen or bathroom, perhaps some nice shrubbery or maybe a simple welcome mat would suffice? If you’re Dalton McGuinty you tear it to the ground. After all it’s only taxpayer’s money he’s playing with here, and with a running tab of $80 Million that we know of and counting, what’s another half a mil right?
As part of their out of court settlement with the Liberals, Dave Brown & Dana Chatwell signed Chatwell’s childhood home over to McGuinty once they had finished moving into a much nicer neighbourhood than the DCE. This took place on January 14, and by evening the government had moved in and posted signs warning of supposed asbestos.
By morning a demolition crew was hard at work razing the house to the ground. None of the workers were wearing any sort of respiratory protection, and the signs warning of asbestos were nowhere to be found. Funny how truly awful the McGuinty government is at maintaining its own web of lies.
