CBC omits Ontario Liberal’s $1million funding cut at Walkerton Water


In a lengthy article based on when Ontario Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne used the Walkerton Water facility as a backdrop to campaign on the graves those who died, CBC’s Robert Fisher doesn’t mention the 25% funding cuts (see here) that the Liberals implemented in 2011.

Her real purpose behind the visit was to deliver a message designed to draw attention to the 100,000-plus job cuts contained in the Hudak plan.

“Cuts have consequences; safe drinking water is not an optional service,” said the Liberal leader. Her comments quickly reached Hudak, who dropped his perpetual campaign smile to accuse Wynne of trying to score political points on the back of a tragedy. (see here)

I’ve asked Fisher about this omission and will update if he responds.
