Hudak names Fedeli PC Finance CriticTuesday, September 10, 2013 by: Kate AdamsProgressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak
Toronto’s former deputy mayor, Doug Holyday, was today assigned by Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak to wreak havoc on the spendthrift ways of the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals.
On his second official day in the Ontario Legislature following his by-election breakthrough in Etobicoke-Lakeshore on Aug. 1, Holyday was named the party’s government accountability critic, a vital post aimed at safeguarding Ontario taxpayers from further Liberal abuse.
“It’s a big role, and he’s the perfect guy for the job” said Hudak. “Doug will be responsible for making sure every penny the Liberals spend is spent wisely – not just on ‘Toronto issues,’ which obviously includes subways and gridlock, ’ but province-wide.
“He will be our point man ensuring Management Board is accountable and, with 30 years of municipal experience putting taxpayer dollars first, he knows what strategies will work and which ones won`t.
“This makes Doug Holyday a very key player in our continuing focus on bringing prosperity back to Ontario.”
Stepping into the key role of Finance Critic, as also announced today by Hudak, is Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli, the popular former mayor of North Bay who successfully launched a grassroots campaign to reverse the United States’ Buy American campaign.
As Ontarians know, Fedeli also played an instrumental part in uncovering the truth, and the incredible $1-billion waste in taxpayers’ dollars, brought on by partisan politics of the Liberals and their audacious cancelling of the gas-fired electrical plants.
