Tories raise questions about Maid of the Mist deal
From CTV Toronto:
The controversy over a 25-year lease renewal for the Maid of the Mist tourist boats in Niagara Falls spilled into the Ontario legislature Monday, with the Opposition alleging political interference by the Liberal government.
The Niagara Parks Commission decided to extend the lease with the American operators of the tour boats, the Maid of the Mist Steamboat Company, without putting it out for competitive bids, prompting a lawsuit and an investigation by Ontario’s integrity commissioner.
The Liberals are already under fire over millions of dollars in untendered contracts awarded by eHealth Ontario and shouldn’t be approving this one, said Progressive Conservative critic Bob Runciman.
