Support for Ombudsman Oversight
October 18, 2011 permalink
Chris York reports that Kim Craitor, Liberal MPP representing Niagara Falls, has agreed to support ombudsman oversight of CAS.
Chris York I just got off the phone with none other then Kim Craitor. He has assured me that he is in full support of the ombudsman oversight of the CAS in Ontario and fully agrees they should have the power to not only investigate but to take disciplinary action against the CAS when they have been found to have committed wrong doing. He stated without a doubt he WILL cross party lines in support of a new bill and he was going to contact Rosario Marchese to ask him if he intends to reintroduce the bill and he stated he will support it 100%. He also advised me that if anything new comes forward on the issue at queens park he will contact me personally to let me know. We now have a liberal on side that is admitting this is wrong for what is going on. Kim Craitor I salute you. The tide is turning on the CAS and there days of absolute power are coming to an end.
Chris York Well at this point in time until he votes against it we have to give them the benefit of the doubt. He took the time to personally call me on the issue so the fact he bothered to pick up the phone and call me in regards to this especially when I'm not even in his riding says a lot I would think. He don't have to answer to me on election day and he still took the time to call me himself instead of hiding behind his staff like most of them do. Until he shows me otherwise I will give him the benefit of the doubt on this.
