Holyday Supported Gas Plant Relocation Decision – News Release from Peter Milczyn Campaign

I’m pleased to share the following July 23, 2013 news release from the Peter Milczyn Campaign.

(Etobicoke) – This morning PC candidate Doug Holyday held a press conference where he and his campaign staff seemingly forgot that he supported the gas plant cancellation in Mississauga and did not want the work to proceed in 2011.

At the time he said:

“I understand there are concerns by some Etobicoke residents, and I think those concerns should be dealt with before the plant building proceeds,” he said. (National Post, June 7, 2011)

Toronto Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday, who represents the Etobicoke ward that would have bordered the site, welcomed the relocation decision. (National Post, July 11, 2012)

Today, the talking points he was provided advocated for political interference in the work of an independent officer of the legislature. This morning he demanded that the government should release a report that is currently being completed by the Auditor-General – suggesting that it’s up to the government to release independent reports. The suggestion that the government can release these types of reports was debunked last week and shows he doesn’t understand how Queen’s Park works.

On a more positive front, Peter Milczyn was in the riding this morning speaking to local residents. “This morning at 7am I was at Islington Subway Station speaking to voters in Etobicoke–Lakeshore about the issues that concern them and their families the most,” said Peter Milczyn. “People in my community want to talk about health care, education, jobs and the economy; not what Doug Holyday talked about in Toronto today.”

Doug Holyday should stop spreading falsehoods or get accurate talking points and focus on jobs, education, transit and the other issues important to the people of Etobicoke-Lakeshore.
