TORONTO, Aug. 31 /CNW/ - The Buttcon Group welcomes the announcement of a
"house cleaning" at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, (OLG) and
supports the provincial government's intention to bring in tough new
accountability standards for provincial corporations and entities.
Buttcon Energy Inc. is the operator of the Windsor Energy Centre, which
supplies power to the OLG-owned Windsor Casino Hotel.
Buttcon, frustrated for months by OLG mismanagement and malfeasance, has
launched a $355 million lawsuit for damages against OLG and its former CEO,
Kelly McDougald and Senior Vice President Larry Flynn.
"This clean-up at OLG is long overdue. Buttcon followed all the rules of
public process, but OLG management broke those rules and made up its own. They
violated agreements and accepted practices. They cost the public an additional
$30 million in the Windsor Energy Centre project alone," according to Buttcon
spokesman Michael Miller of Aylesworth LLP.
Buttcon is also pleased to note that the previous role of interim-CEO of
OLG, Bohodar Rubashewsky, was as Assistant Deputy Minister of the Road User
Safety Division of the Ministry of Transportation.
"It's good to have someone associated with public safety in this
position, because the safe operation of the Windsor Energy Centre is a major
concern of Buttcon, if not of the former management of OLG," concluded Miller.
Ontario-based Buttcon Limited has been in business since 1979.
