The Ontario government should open up the public sector — including school boards and municipalities — to competitive bidding, PC Leader Tim Hudak says.

“When you have closed tendering, it’s only a couple of steps away from corruption,” Hudak said. “And you don’t get good quality services at the end of the day.”

Hudak stood before the headquarters of the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) Wednesday which paid $143 to a sole-sourced maintenance contractor to have one pencil sharpener installed at a school.
