Today in question period, Essex MPP Taras Natyshak called on Premier Wynne to halt the government’s plan to restructure and privatise the OLG, saying the plan was “in chaos.”
“It’s time for this government to admit that it has a gambling problem,” said Natyshak. “It’s addicted to the revenues that it thinks will pour in from privatising the OLG.”
Natyshak says the government has overestimated the projected revenues from the scheme, and is unlikely to ever reap any real financial windfall.
“Will the government admit that its OLG privatization strategy is a total mess and scrap the misguided plan once and for all?” asked Natyshak.
