Same Old Liberals: Wynne Appoints Friend As Washington Envoy

16 August 2013



QUEEN’S PARK – By appointing former Liberal MPP Monique Smith as the new envoy to Washington, Premier Kathleen Wynne has proven once again she has no plans to change the way the McGuinty-Wynne government is run, Barrie Ontario PC MPP Rod Jackson said today.

“Last month, Ontario lost another 10,000 jobs,” Jackson stated.“Half a million people are unemployed, but instead of kick-starting the economy, Premier Wynne created another overpaid, bureaucratic job for her friend Monique Smith – a blatant patronage appointment.

“This used to be a part-time role – but as the first full-time appointee, Smith is now costing taxpayers a staggering $250,000 a year.”

Smith, who worked on Premier Wynne’s transition team, sat around the Cabinet table as the McGuinty-Wynne government drove the province towards a growing $270-billion debt.

“Every person in our province owes nearly $20,000 in debt because of the catastrophic, deliberate decisions that Monique Smith, Kathleen Wynne and her Liberals have made.

“Ontario deserves better,” Jackson concluded.“To put our province back on track to prosperity, we need to change the team that leads it.”
