QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner released this statement after the Auditor General revealed the true cost of illegal border crossings in Ontario:
“The Ford government is obsessed with fixing math in classrooms, and yet it consistently gets its own math terribly wrong.
The auditor general has unearthed bad accounting in the climate plan, an overestimated deficit, and now inflated costs to deal with irregular border crossings.
This is confirmation that Ford was acting like other conservative politicians across the country and playing politics with immigration policy.
It’s hard to trust this government when it continually plays politics with the numbers.”
