Nipissing Liberals say Fedeli set to provoke a provincial election

********************

Today, as we began the second session of the 40th Parliament of Ontario, our new Ontario government laid out our priorities — building a strong job-creation economy, making the minority parliament work, and making life a little easier here in Ontario, for the benefit of all.

“Premier Wynne and our new Ontario government are focused on finding common ground to build a stronger economy and a fair society,” said Keith Pacey, President of the Nipissing Provincial Liberal Association.

In spite of this positive reaching out to all members of the legislature, Tim Hudak, the Leader of the official opposition, and Vic Fedeli, MPP Nipissing, have both made it very clear that they would prefer a provincial election over working together for the good of all Ontarians.

“While everyone in Ontario is saying that we don’t want an election and are making it more than clear that they are expecting all three parties to work together to make this minority government work, Mr. Fedeli is making it clear that he wants no part of working together,” stated Pacey.

For the past four months, Conservatives have been demanding that the legislature gets back to as soon as possible and now even before the first question period has occurred, Conservative Leader, Tim Hudak has made it clear that he plans to throw up every road block possible.

“Mr. Fedeli has not only made it clear that he and his party are not interested in making this minority government work, but he has made it clear that he can’t wait to get back to the same old ways,” Pacey declared.

The actions of the Tory party do not appear to be those of a group who are looking to avoid a general election by making this minority government work.

“The people of Nipissing and all of Ontario do not want a general election,” Pacey emphasized. “Mr. Fedeli needs to stop putting the goals of the Conservative Party ahead of the needs of the people who elected him to represent them - the people of Nipissing.”

“The people of Nipissing and all of Ontario do not want a general election,” Pacey emphasized.
Well they, the Liberals certainly don't listen to what the people of Nipissing do want. So I guess it is not out of line for them to just make it up & say whatever they want.

Mr Fedeli is putting his own needs above those of the province and the PC's..........he wants to be leader and if Hudac loses another election, his days as leader are over....... Mr Fedeli has been eyeing the leadership of the provincial PC's since before his election as MP, so guess who he sees as the replacement for Hudac.

Yeh, if Vic became premier he would move out of the province, raise taxes, piss of the entire population. After all, being an out-of-province premier, the taxes wouln't affect him. Just like when he was mayor of North Bay he lived out of town so therefore, all the raised taxes, water rates etc.. did not affect him.
Time for him to be impeached.

Seems some folks are letting their personal dislike for Fedeli blind them.

The Liberals need to be held accountable for what they've done to all of Ontario and thrown out sooner rather than later. First step in first aid - stop the bleeding

GWN....u r correct....the others on this board are liberals....no matter what....they r BLIND to what the liberals have done yet attack Vic at EVERY turn??

Here's what they dont mention about Vic....he was elected and RE ELECTED with a SOLID majority of the votes when he was major so it is THEY who are in the minority! He was also ELECTED by a healthy majority for MPP...so AGAIN they are part of the minority!

They dont mention that when he was 1st elected major the cities emergency fund was down to a few million when it should be around 20million...why?....because past counsels robbed from peter to pay paul....do u really think a zero % tax increase costs the city nothing? As the saying says...u can pay me now or pay me later....btw under Vic the money put into the cities infrastructure TRIPLED.

TAKE OFF THE BLINDERS BOYS....

In a time where he can REALLY capitalize on LIBERAL BLUNDERS...he heads further right???? Not the way to attract more voters imho.....

So, the Liberal Govt. wants to work with all parties. What a joke !!!!!!
Working together takes a bit of give
and take and that is sure not in Wynns
vocabulary. We got rid of the Premier
that got us into this mess we find ourselves in yet she is adamant in her
desire to carry on the same old ways of
"The Dalton Gang. The same old fools in
different chairs do not make a new Govt.
I also don't want another Election but
what choice do the people of this Province
have but to go to the polls and get rid
of this bunch who have put us in debt up
to our ears, wasted tax payers money on
their fraudulent activities ie: Lhins,
the ornge scandal,E health,moving
energy plants around to the tune of
Hundreds of Millions of dollars to save
a few seats in the last election,raped
the north of its infrastructure,and lied
to parliament about the cost of the moves of the plants by telling us it cost about $40.million to move them
when the true cost will be closer to
a Billion Dollars.the local Fibulars can put all the spin on their rants that
they may but it doesn't change the facts
that their beloved Fibulars are a tired
old bunch of has beens that never really
were a responsible govt.Lets have the
damn election and get it over with the
SOONER THE BETTER>

"Nipissing Liberals say Fedeli set to provoke a provincial election" IMO if Fedelli succeeds at forcing an election, it will be the first positive thing he has accomplished since he was elected. Other that that he has been an utter failure in representing his constituents and let's not forget that the Cons and NDP had a glorious opportunity to dethrone the Liberals but opted to vote with them instead!!
