Don Guy, a longtime chief of staff to former premier Dalton McGuinty, will be grilled by opposition MPPs who are expected to ask what role Guy played in scrapping the energy projects.
Guy will also likely be asked why the government was so slow to release all related documents requested by a committee.
The opposition parties call the cancellations an expensive Liberal seat “saver program,” and the governing party did hold all five ridings in the area in the 2011 election.
Then-energy minister Chris Bentley initially said it was a Liberal campaign decision to cancel the partially-built Mississauga gas plant just two weeks before election day, but McGuinty later testified that it was his decision alone.
Recently released emails show the Liberals running in McGuinty's office wanted cabinet ministers to say it was the government that killed the gas plants, not the Liberal campaign team.
