MPP's off until February with Ford's PC's dealing with controversy

A quiet day at Queen's Park as the Ontario government heads out for its winter break today, a week earlier than scheduled.

The recess comes as the PC government is dealing with controversy on several fronts.

 Yesterday, U.S. regulators rejected Hydro One's proposed takeover of an American company over concerns of political interference from the provincial government, which is the utility's largest shareholder.

Premier Doug Ford also recently had to defend the appointment of a long-time family friend as the new head of the Ontario Provincial Police.

The legislature is set to resume Feb. 19th.
