The continuing story of bungalow bill - LHIN style. PCs pound Liberals on health care

The Liberals continue to pay a heavy price for their health care sins.  And for the Progressive Conservatives (now leading in the latest poll), the LHINs are the gift that just keeps on giving. 

The Erie St. Clair LHIN boss has now issued an apology for making his, er, 'frank' remarks regarding Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak:  “Let’s be very clear — this guy is making this crap up and it’s false. I don’t think the public is stupid enough to believe him.” Notably, the 'apology' does not extend to Hudak, just to the local population.  (But for all the groveling, see the What's New section of the Erie St. Clair LHIN web site.)

Adding to the joy of Progressive Conservatives everywhere, the chair of that very same LHIN claimed  "I don't think it's a lot of money" when asked about the $54,075 in per diem payments that she received last year (a 29% increase over the year before).

The Chair, Mina Grossman-Ianni has donated $2,422 to the Liberal party since 2003. So, naturally, the local Conservatives are gleefully demanding her resignation, to much media attention.

'Beleaguered' is the word that comes to mind when I think of the LHINs now.  But the Liberals may think, sometime before the next election, that 'cursed' is a better description.

It's not like we didn't warn 'em.
