4th Reading

Remember the ,Ontario, Yours To Discover, tourism ads? Many of us grew up with an image of a province brimming with sparkling water, clean air and pristine parks. And we expected our government to keep it that way. But a scathing report released by Ontario's Environmental Commissioner this week says all is far from pristine on the environmental front. Gord Miller lays the blame for most of those problems squarely at the feet of the Mike Harris government. And worse, he says no one's minding the store to prevent more tragedies such as Walkerton from happening again. Tonight Gord Miller joins Fourth Reading pundits Mac Penney, Ruth Grier and Richard Mahoney to discuss the substance and the politics of the report.
