4th Reading

Everyone knows that Mike Harris and golf courses go together like bread and butter. But this week, it turned into a nasty mix. Allegations are flying that one of Harris' best friends used his political connections to bypass civil service objections, and get approval for a multi-million dollar golf course and luxury housing development on Lake Nippising. The Premier's Office says Harris had nothing to do with the development. But critics say it's part of a pattern of the Conservatives turning what were once independent Ontario institutions into partisan political tools. Tonight on 4th Reading, our guest is Bob Wood, London West MPP. Panelists: Mac Penney, Tim Murphy, and Ruth Grier.
