AUDIO – DESCRIPTION:
Freedom Party of Ontario president Robert Metz calls into the “London Today” program hosted by Andy Oudman weekday mornings on 1290 AM CJBK. A by-election is soon to be called for five Ontario ridings, to replace 5 outgoing Liberal MPPs (some of whom have arguably retired due to involvement in a scandal in which the Liberal government spent hundreds of millions of dollars to move two gas plants in an effort to save 5 Liberal seats during the 2011 general election). The news has been leaked to Oudman’s show – by an upset London West Liberal – that the Kathleen Wynne Liberals are going to appoint Ken Coran – former head of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation who is retiring on June 30th, 2013 – even though he and his union led the anti-Liberal government protest held at the February 2013 Liberal leadership contest, and even though he – only a week or so earlier – had been endorsing the London West NDP candidate, Peggy Sattler. All three parties – the Liberals, NDP, and PCs – are promising to continue deficit spending until as late as 2017 or 2018. Robert Metz calls to let the public know that Al Gretzky (Wayne Gretzky’s uncle) will be Freedom Party’s candidate in London West, and that he’s the candidate to elect if people want to balance the budget in Ontario.
