QUEEN’S PARK – NDP MPP Rosario Marchese says today’s cabinet shuffle from Dalton McGuinty will do little to help stimulate Ontario’s economy or repair the damage his government has inflicted on the people of Ontario.
“Shuffling the desk isn’t going to erase the fact that McGuinty has made people’s lives much harder and less affordable,” said Marchese. “Ontarians are losing their jobs and the McGuinty Liberals are desperately trying to save their own.”
“Dalton McGuinty’s swapped Energy and Infrastructure Ministers six times in three years. He’s swapped Aboriginal Affairs Ministers almost as often. Ministries that were merged mere months ago are being split again. People want a government focused on their needs and all they see is a scrambling Premier focused on himself,” continued Marchese.
Marchese said “McGuinty’s cosmetic cabinet shuffle is damage control for countless wrong-headed policies. “You can’t put a band-aid on leaking dam. From the HST debacle to the eco-fee fiasco, from the embarrassment at the G20 to the flip-flop on online gambling and mixed martial arts, this government doesn’t know what it stands for anymore.”
