Cancelled Power Plants
On Monday October 15, Dalton McGuinty announced his resignation after nine years as Premier of Ontario.
McGuinty also prorogued parliament until a new Liberal leader is chosen. This act not only halts debate in the legislature, but delays the committee investigating the cancellation of two gas-fired power plants in Oakville and Mississauga.
Prior to the prorogation, it was revealed that the government failed to release a further 20,000 pages of documents related to the cancellation of the plants, a revelation that dominated Monday's Question Period debate.
