Auditor General's Report Ready


Trot Insider has learned that the Auditor General's special report on the OLG's Modernization Plan will be tabled in the Legislature on Monday, April 28, 2014.

In a letter penned by Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk dated April 23, 2014 and addressed to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts, the report is expected to be tabled at the start of afternoon proceedings, shortly after 1:00 p.m.

The tabling of the report will be followed by a news conference in the Queen's Park Media Studio.

Monday's report comes after a motion was passed by Ontario's legislature on April 10, 2013. The motion, as adopted, called on the Auditor General to investigate all aspects of the OLG’s modernization strategy, including the process for tendering, contracting, and planning for all new or proposed casinos; host-city-payment formulas; revenue projections and economic impact assessments; community impacts on mental health and/or addiction matters; effects on the Slots At Racetracks Program; and consultations to determine whether or not casinos are welcome in proposed communities.
