Schreiner responds to updated deficit numbers

Orangeville, ON — Green Party of Ontario Leader, Mike Schreiner, released the following statement in response to updated deficit numbers released today:

“The Premier has overstated the deficit over the last year in order to pursue an ideological agenda of government cuts.

Municipalities, children with autism, school programs, the arts, and community groups are all feeling the sting of Ford’s cuts, even while the government delivered tax breaks to the wealthy last year.

Ontario needs a balanced fiscal plan. I call on the Ford government to stop with the partisan spin and have an honest conversation about a sustainable approach to investing in public services.”
