TORONTO, Ontario — Former Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty admitted Tuesday he did not know what it would cost when he made the decisions to cancel planned gas plants in Oakville and Mississauga and move them to other locations.

Testifying under oath at the legislature’s justice committee, McGuinty acknowledged in his opening statement that he made the decisions to scrap the two energy projects, which were widely opposed by local residents.

“In my office, we don’t have the capacity to make calculations associated with these kinds of contractual arrangements, or to make these kinds of estimates as to what ultimate costs might be,” he told the committee.

“I knew that going into this, that when I said we’re going to relocate gas plants, that I did not have at my hand the costs associated with that.”
