Motion to extend Ontario ombudsman Andre Marin's term denied

Ontario Ombudsman Andre Marin prepares to speak to reporters
It looks like Ontario’s growling watchdog is about to be neutered.

According to The Canadian Press, an NDP motion to further extend Andre Marin’s term failed to pass on Monday.

A separate Liberal motion that sought to temporarily replace him with his deputy ombudsman, Barbara Finlay, also failed.

That means a void in the position, which investigates public complaints about Ontario government services.

Marin has been a thorn in the Liberal government’s side, issuing a series of scathing reports, including a mammoth exposé on unfair billing practices at Hydro One.

Other notable reports by Marin included fraud at the OLG, and mass rights violations during the G20 in Toronto.  (more...)

We hope the Ontario Ombudsman can continue their hard work for ensuring fairness and justice to Ontario...
