Archive: Show #171 "Steve Gilchrist"

4th Reading

Steve Gilchrist is one of those Tory MPP's the talk shows love. And the feeling has always been mutual. Gilchrist likes to be on TV. And TV shows like to book him as a guest, because he's one of the best and most entertaining communicators in the provincial government. But this week, Steve Gilchrist is all over the tele and for all the wrong reasons. Gilchrist is under investigation by the OPP. Should the Scarborough MPP, who's also a cabinet minister, have to quit if he's under investigation? Gilchrist says the answer is no. The Gilchrist situation has, momentarily at least, taken attention away from a problem the Harris government seems determined to solve: what to do about the increasing number of so-called squeegee kids at Toronto's major intersections.
