So much for personal accountability

So, the Ontario election is over. It was a bittersweet moment for me to see the results in Sarnia's riding - Caroline Di Cocco was tossed aside in favour of a new MPP... unfortunately one from the Conservative Party.

I can't help but laugh at her, though, because now she's blaming Mike Bradley for her loss in the election. The woman who was too busy to read a memo that indicated huge cost overruns on the hospital expansion in Sarnia thinks it's the Mayor's fault. I'm not normally a huge fan of Mayor Mike, but at least he's honest enough and upright enough to want to see the truth shown to the citizens of Sarnia.

From the article:
The final clash came in recent weeks, when Bradley demanded the Ontario government disclose the revised cost for a new Sarnia hospital — a tab later shown to have more than doubled to $319 million.
And the Mayor comments:

“I think there was a plan out of Queen’s Park to spin (the real costs) out until after the election,” Bradley said.

I think he's right.
