Not voting is not doing job

London Free Press
When did it become OK for our representatives in the Ontario Legislature not to vote on critical bills, such as the provincial budget?

Again the NDP, under Andrea Horwath’s leadership, did not vote. This is not acceptable.

She got a surcharge on folks who earn more than $500,000 a year. These are the folks who are for the most part are trying to run and create businesses and give Ontarians an opportunity to work.

Horwath ignored all the scandals, such as Ornge, as well as the recommendations from the Ontario auditor general regarding the industrial wind turbines, for example, single-source contracts to Samsung and removing citizens’ rights in the Green Energy Act.

Horwath should not talk out of both sides of her mouth. Why is she so scared to vote this government down? Is she worried about her pension?

Horwath should be ashamed, and so should the provincial NDP for this disgraceful use of public trust.
