Tarion is a government-granted monopoly with no independent oversight and accountability.
Premier Wynne and Minister David Orazietti (Consumer and Government Services) need to open the books of Tarion to the Auditor General of Ontario, and give oversight of Tarion to the Ombudsman of Ontario. In addition, they should provide consumers with an ACCURATE list of all defects caused by Tarion- licensed builders, and disclose senior management salaries and bonuses – to the public.
None of this is being done now.
How can Premier Wynne continue to turn a blind eye to these serious problems, in the most important expenditure most Ontarians will make in their lives – a new home or condo?!
Please listen to my interview for social media with MPP Singh who has brought important legislation to Queen’s Park this week (10/12/2014) to try to address these problems, which the Wynne/McGuinty Liberal government has allowed to fester for so many years.
Its long overdue for Premier Wynne to take leadership on this major issue.
If the current government is serious about transparency and accountability, and helping hard-working Ontario consumers, we hope they’ll take a few minutes to view this short interview.
Meaningful action is long overdue by Premier Wynne and Minister Orazietti. Over to this majority Liberal government to “do the right thing”.
