Ontario lottery corporation blasted for Benz giveaway amid auto crisis
During question period at the provincial legislature in Toronto, Conservative MPP Ted Chudleigh asked the Liberal government why the OLG is giving away 22 Mercedes-Benz B200s during its April "License to Win" competition, instead of cars made by Ontarians.


Responding for the Liberals, Smitherman said he agreed "entirely" with Chudleigh's question and added he had a face-to-face meeting over the contest with OLG chief executive officer Kelly McDougald.
No word on whether McDougald defended the decision on the basis that the Lottery Corporation wanted to give out prizes people would actually like.
