Today the Office of the Auditor General of Ontario is reportedly releasing a “critical report on home-care & [Community Care Access Centres] ” according to an actual reporter,who questioned the motives of the Premier going back to the beer well today:
Tomorrow, auditor due to deliver critical report on home-care & CCACs. Also, Wynne promising “update” on beer reforms. Coincidence? #onpoli

Today the Toronto Star’s Queen’s Park Bureau Chief starts his column:
Consumers, craft brewers, grocers and owners of small bars and restaurants will finally quench their thirst for change under a new deal between Queen’s Park and the Beer Store, the Star has learned.
On December 9th, 2014, the Office of the Auditor General of Ontario released their 2014 Annual Report. The Star’s “Provincial Politic” reporter that day began his column with:
Thanks to a whistleblower, we now have the secret details of how Ontarians are being hosed by The Beer Store with the wilful involvement of elected officials.
If you pay for the Toronto Star, you should be embarrassed – because you pay for a publication that distracts your from news instead of informing you.
You’re expecting to respond to the word “beer” the way a dog responds to “squirrel” – in order to distract you from public audits of public spending.
You’d be better off chasing squirrels than reading The Toronto Star. If you’re good at it maybe serve with a craft brew – something particularly strong.
