Quote:


The three opposition amigos banded together in a bid to seize the reins of Premier Kathleen Wynne’s political fundraising reforms.

With a rare show of unity, Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown, NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, and Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner called upon Wynne to create a new non-partisan committee to design the changes sparked by a Star exposé.

Horwath — flanked by Brown and Schreiner at a Queen’s Park press conference — wanted a nine-member “advisory panel on political finance reform and electoral participation.”

“Now it’s time for the premier to do the right thing,” the NDP leader said.

But later Tuesday, Wynne reminded the post-partisan posse that in a majority legislature there is only one sheriff in town when it comes to lawmaking.

Full credit to all three leaders of the opposition sharing a stage on an issue that doesn't involve a coalition government.

Its a nice change to see at least some degree of bipartisan consensus on an issue that should be a no-brainer.

it seems like all 3 opposition parties were interested in finding common ground and updating these fundraising rules . but its not really clear if the liberals were listening
