In a scathing seven-page report released this afternoon, Ontario’s Integrity Commissioner Lynn Morrison slammed Premier Kathleen Wynne over the costume she wore to a Halloween party Saturday evening. Ms. Wynne, seen in the picture above, was dressed as a vending machine for Ontario’s public assets.
The integrity Commissioner’s report focused on the disservice that Wynne’s costume did to the holiday spirit. “Halloween is a time when even as adults we get to engage the magic of our imaginations. We ponder different worlds, and then for one evening we step into the shoes of a character within one of those worlds. Ms. Wynne’s actions are disappointing because she just threw on her work cloths and went as herself. It’s just so disrespectful to the spirit of the season.”
In a press scrum shortly after the report was released, Premier Wynne struck back at the Integrity Commissioner’s report. “My costume was clearly well above the bar in terms of creativity!” Wynne said emphatically. “I ordered the vending machine costume weeks ago and had to attach all those logos to it myself. Besides, I only have immediate plans to sell off one of those crown corporations at pop-bottle prices.”
Wynne also pointed out that the costume was a hit with the other guests at the party. “Ed Clark [former CEO of TD Bank] was hosting the party and he loved it. There were also a bunch of other bank executives, investment bankers and corporate lawyers in attendance and they must have thought it was creative, because they were giddy at the sight of that costume.”
