Call for Public Inquiry into Public Appointments Process
Brad Blair makes his call for a public Commission of Inquiry in the wake of the utter failure of public watchdogs to expose corruption and hold public officials to account.
The appointment of Ron Taverner is not an isolated case. The Premier’s Chief of Staff, Dean French, resigned in June amidst other appointment controversies. An internal investigation of Doug Ford and his own people by the Premier himself will not provide the transparency and accountability the public deserves. Nothing less than a public Commission of Inquiry into the actions of corrupt government players and the collapse of our legislative watchdogs will restore public faith in our government and democratic institutions.
