Liberal Budget Fails Ontario
(July 14, 2014) - "This budget is a political document, not a practical plan for our province," said Ontario PC Interim Leader Jim Wilson. "We can’t support a budget that will hurt people across Ontario."
Wilson made his remarks following the introduction of the 2014 budget.
Despite the risk of a credit downgrade and further job losses, the Liberals presented their campaign budget to the people of Ontario.
“A credit downgrade will have immediate consequences for every person in Ontario,” said Wilson. “It will mean billions of dollars redirected towards paying the interest on our debt, rather than going towards frontline services.”
“We’ll be voting against this budget, and holding the Liberals to account for presenting this campaign document rather than a plan to get Ontario back to balance,” Wilson concluded.
