The province’s auditor general reports today on the cost of cancelling the Oakville gas plant which the Liberals put at 40-million-dollars. The Ontario Power Authority has pegged the cost at 310-million. But, according to a report in the Globe and Mail this could have cost nothing at all. Sources familiar with the auditor’s draft report say had local opposition and a town by-law blocking construction been able to run their course, the contract with Trans Canada Corporation could have been terminated without penalty or damages. However, with an election looming, the Oakville plant and another in Mississauga were cancelled.
