Justice moves slowly it seems, especially when Liberal politicians are involved. I learned from CBC today that Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is finally going to talk to the police about those pesky bribery allegations involving people who said they were speaking on her behalf.
Premier Kathleen Wynne says she'll co-operate fully with Ontario Provincial Police when they question her later this week about the Liberal party's actions during a Sudbury byelection in February.
Why are they just getting to this now?
Later this week means the last day of April or first day of May over allegations made public back in December. The allegations were that Wynne sent a Sudbury Liberal operative and her deputy chief of staff to offer candidate Andrew Olivier a job if he would step aside and let someone else run for the Liberals.
Now this is clearly a violation of electoral laws and the criminal code, the police knew about this in December, the recordings were released to the public in January and nothing has been done since.
I said when the recordings were released that I had little confidence the OPP would investigate this properly given the support the OPP union threw behind Wynne and the Liberals in the last provincial election.
The OPP could have proven me wrong by working swiftly on this case, instead they have dragged their feet.
What is their excuse? The premier is busy? They couldn’t find her? Or they are simply lackeys for the premier and her governing party.
This should have been dealt with by now; instead, they will meet later this week. I’d say May 1st - May Day, the socialist holiday - would be a good time for the meeting.
