Ford’s Defence of His $8.3 Billion Cash-For-Your-Land Scheme Unacceptable: MPP Fraser

OTTAWA, ON – John Fraser, MPP for Ottawa South and Interim Leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, has released the following statement:

“Today, Premier Ford tried to defend his $8.3 billion cash-for-your-land scheme that benefited his friends and well-connected insiders.

“He is trying to play us all for fools.

“Ontarians know it is simply not believable that one political staffer — a rookie chief of staff — was behind all of this.

“Minister Clark and Premier Ford brought this scheme forward and supported it at cabinet. That was wrong.

“Three things need to happen.

  1. Minister Clark must resign.
  2. Premier Ford must open the books on this scandal.
  3. Taxpayers dollars must not be used to pay the legal costs of anyone implicated in any investigation.

“At a time when many Ontario families are struggling to pay bills Premier Ford has been focused on helping his friends.”
