The highest court in Ontario has ruled that there is no evidence that Premier Kathleen Wynne or any of her ministers acted in bad faith by partially privatizing Hydro One.
The Court of Appeal upheld a previous decision dismissing a lawsuit against the province.
It was filed in 2016 by the Canadian Union of Public Employees, which accused the Liberals of abuse of power over the government’s decision to sell shares in the electricity distributor.
The union claimed that the sale of the electricity distributor’s shares had been completed with the purpose of rewarding companies that contributed to the Ontario Liberal Party’s fund.
Premier Kathleen Wynne has always defended herself by saying that the Ethics Commissioner had looked into the matter and found nothing wrong with his government.
