What does this have to do with McGuinty?
I think Ornge comes within the Liberal's purview, by association, McGuinty "The buck stops (or doesn't in the Liberals case) here.
The OPP is investigating Ornge.
"ORNGE, which employs 400 people, receives $150 million in public funding each year."
From our taxes, from the government dispersements.
Doesn't ORNGE come under the Ministry of Health which is in the Liberal Government. Isn't McGuinty defending his Ministry over Orange malfeasance?

“It may well be that that criminal investigation reaches into the minister’s office,” he told reporters. “So there should be no impediment to that.”
Mr. Klees raised questions about Ornge 10 months ago. He has been on the outs with his caucus colleagues in recent months for defying Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak by running unsuccessfully for Speaker. But he received two standing ovations from his Tory colleagues in Question Period as he accused the government of trying to cover up the scandal swirling around Ornge.
Government officials, including Ms. Matthews, have known for at least a year that for-profit entities created by Ornge were doing business under the same roof as the publicly funded air carrier, Mr. Klees said.
Ms. Matthews called in forensic auditors in December to pore over Ornge’s financial records to determine whether taxpayers’ money was used for the private companies. Ornge receives $150-million a year to manage all aspects of the province’s air ambulance service.
