A controversial proposed gas plant that was  cancelled just days before last year’s election will be relocated to southwestern Ontario.

Energy Minister Chris Bentley  says the relocation of the natural gas plant to Ontario Power Generation’s Lambton Generating Station site will cost $180 million.

That  includes a settlement agreement with the financiers of the plant, who are suing the Liberals for $300 million.

The  government cancelled the  plant in Mississauga last year, after scrapping another one in nearby Oakville the year before.

The opposition parties have accused the government of cancelling the plants to save Liberal seats.

Work on the Mississauga plant continued for weeks after the Oct. 6 election, even though the government made it clear the project would have to be located elsewhere.
