Schreiner statement on Ford’s billboard plan

Mike Schreiner released the following statement after Premier Ford suggested he would put up billboards on the 400-series highways to generate revenue:

“This is a worrying sign about the upcoming budget if the Premier is more concerned with roadside gimmicks than tackling true emergencies like COVID-19.

We need real vision to lead the province through tough challenges, not roadside distractions copied from down south to make a quick buck.

As if the Premier hasn’t made enough gaffes with stickers and license plates, he’s now getting into the billboard business.

The Premier should end the Extreme Makeover: Ontario Edition and work on a real budget that addresses climate change, affordable housing and public health.”
