This Household Is Quite Unhappy With The Ontario Liberals (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Well, don't sugarcoat it.

Matt Young, an Ontario PC candidate in Ottawa South, tweeted a photo of an angry letter he found taped to a door in his riding Wednesday.

The note tears a strip off Ontario Liberals over high electricity rates and the gas plant scandal. It also warns Grit MPP John Fraser and his "henchmen" that they will be hit with both HYDRO BILLS and OBSCENITIES if they dare knock.

Whoever posted the letter claims to have worked on five different Liberal campaigns but now regrets those efforts.

Ottawa South was previously represented by former Liberal premier Dalton McGuinty. Fraser won a byelection to replace him in August, besting Young by more than 1,000 votes.

The note may be representative of how some Ontarians feel about the estimated $1.1 billion lost after the cancellation of gas plants in Mississauga and Oakville.

But Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion, who endorsed Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne last week, believes there are more important issues to focus on. In fact, she called the scandal "water under the bridge."

The best line of the angry letter?

"John Manley would be turning in his grave if he were dead."

Manley, a former federal Liberal finance minister, was the MP for Ottawa South for about 16 years. He was replaced by another McGunity — Dalton's younger brother, David.

Ontario voters head to the polls on June 12.
