Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne should disclose all the financial details of the MaRS bailout before voters head to the polls June 12, Progressive Conservative candidate Vic Fedeli says.

The $317-million price tag — which could balloon to close to $600 million once amortization and other costs are factored in — is not being spent on new classrooms or emergency rooms, Fedeli said Sunday.

“You won’t even find a counter where you can renew your driver’s licence,” the Nipissing candidate said. “Instead, you will find floor after floor of fancy offices for new bureaucrats she plans to hire. One of the most expensive pieces of real estate in Canada, basically Kathleen Wynne has just used your tax dollars to purchase the Trump Tower of Canadian bureaucracy.”
