New Democrat Leader Andrea Horwath is demanding Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli be fired for comments directed at her that she calls sexist and misogynist.
Chiarelli apologized in the legislature Wednesday after he was heard saying Horwath "pees all over the map" on energy issues, but insisted he never actually said that and meant to say only that "she's all over the map."
Horwath says it wasn't a real apology because Chiarelli didn't admit he'd done anything wrong, and claims his "disgusting slur" comparing her actions to a dog's was meant to demean and embarrass her so she would "shut up."
She says anyone who watches the video of the energy minister's comments in the legislature would agree it is "obvious" that he did not misspeak.
The NDP leader also says Premier Kathleen Wynne should immediately remove Chiarelli from the Ontario cabinet.
Horwath says Wynne should be ashamed of herself for supporting Chiarelli, and claims the premier is not standing up for the women in Ontario.
