Another jewel in the McGuinty Liberal crown of mismanagement is the Ontario Lottery & Gaming Corporation (OLG). This crown corporation was plagued with scandals ranging from expense abuse to insider wins.
It has been the subject of damning reviews by the Ontario Ombudsman and the Ontario Auditor General highlighting everything dysfunctional with this organization. Again more problems under McGuinty’s watch.
During 2008-2009 year, OLG’s employees spent $1 Million of taxpayer money on meetings and hospitality expenses alone.
Ontario Auditor General Jim McCarter released his report on the OLG scandal, which clearly implicated the McGuinty government.
Millions of dollars, originally intended to stimulate Ontario’s economy were wasted on gym memberships, liquor tabs and car detailing. Many OLG executives, earning salaries in excess of $200,000, used taxpayer dollars to buy clothes, golf club memberships, and expensive dinners.
