Oshawa Council wants the Federal Integrity Commissioner to investigate the Oshawa Port Authority. At a special council meeting Thursday night to discuss the recently approved ethanol plant at the waterfront, council passed a motion asking that the appointments of the OPA and their relationships between Whitby-Oshawa MP Jim Flaherty and farm-tech be investigated. Mayor John Henry says council isn’t the first to raise alarm bells. He says members of the opposition have brought up the same issue on the floor of the house. The OPA approved an ethanol plant at the waterfront, despite the city’s vehement opposition. Meanwhile, council is also requesting the port authority hold a public meeting to explain their decision. On Friday, FarmTech released a statement welcoming a public meeting. President Dan O’Connor says the $200 million project stands on its own merit, and will create jobs, opportunity and millions in investment. O’Connor also claims there is a lot of misinformation about the project, and he looks forward to explaining the benefits to residents.
