OTTAWA, Jan. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Centre for Policy Studies is
expressing its concern with the decision by Ontario's Liberal
government to abandon bill 115, calling the move "disturbing.".
"This decision may help Ontario's Liberal Party and its leadership
candidates raise money from public sector unions," observed Mike
Patton, Director of Provincial Affairs for the Centre, "but it does
nothing to ward off the fiscal crisis toward which Ontario is
"Bill 115 represented a very modest attempt to avert that crisis by
re-asserting some control over public-sector spending," continued
Patton. "Abandoning the bill now is a disturbing signal that the
government's lacks the resolve to get its fiscal house in order."
