3/8/2018 10:27:13 AM
The Ontario PCs are hoping to crack down on the Wynne Liberal's spending.
MPP for Elgin-Middlesex-London Jeff Yurek has introduced a Private Member's Bill that would force the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry to be transparant about its spending
The PCs say that a 2016 report shows that the Ministry spent thousands of dollars collected through Fishing & Hunting licences on things that were unrelated to wildlife management.
They used the example of $69,000 that was used to sell, buy and rent housing accommodations and $55,000 on psychologist and other medical services, based on a report from 2011/12.
MPP Jeff Yurek says that the proposed legislation would strengthen spending requirements surrounding the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry's Special Purpose Account.
