Trillium Party has made History Again! MPP, Jack MacLaren, was escorted out of the legislature today while rebutting his own Private Member’s Bill 197 – the Affordable Electricity Act, for standing his ground, and refusing to withdraw his comments that pointed out that the Ontario government has broken the Law.
See the PMB here: Affordable Electricity Act 2018-1
The Affordable Electricity Act will ensure that the cost of electricity will be driven by the needs of the people, and not by the dealmakers in the back-room political parties
Acting Speaker, Ms Hoggarth, seemed to be prompted (as heard on the live stream) by a member of the Liberal Party, and immediately rose and directed Jack MacLaren to withdraw his comments. Mr. MacLaren replied “It’s the truth…you can’t withdraw the truth”. Ms. Hoggarth then directed that Jack MacLaren be escorted out of the legislature for the remainder of the session.
This is the first time that an MPP has been asked to leave the Legislature in the midst of rebutting his own Private Member’s Bill.
We are extremely proud of Jack for standing his ground! It’s time the Government was called out so the public knows what’s going on in the back rooms.
The expediency at which Jack was “hushed” after drawing attention to the Government’s disregard for following its own laws, was a statement within itself!
TRILLIUM PARTY’S, MPP JACK MACLAREN’S PRIVATE MEMBERS BILL 197 – THE AFFORDABLE ELECTRICITY ACT HAS BEEN PASSED TO “COMMITTEE REVIEW” FOR SECOND READING!
We also thank the many people that came out to Queen’s Park to support the Trillium Party and Jack! Your support is fantastic!
