Doug Ford Releases a Mirage of a Plan

TORONTO – Ontario Liberal Leader, Steven Del Duca issued the following statement ahead of his scrum in the Queen’s Park Media Studio:

“Instead of releasing the plan Ontario families were looking for, today’s Fall Economic Statement failed on vaccine mandates, childcare, education, support for small business, and so much more.

On vaccine mandates, Doug Ford is listening to the protesters outside of hospitals instead of the health care heroes inside them.

On childcare, Doug Ford is leaving parents to continue struggling with unaffordable costs and putting our economic recovery at risk instead of signing a deal like eight other provinces and territories have already done. Ontario Liberals are committed to delivering $10/day childcare.

On education, instead of investing in our children’s future, Doug Ford is cutting funding for our students and schools by half a billion dollars. Ontario Liberals would use the $8 billion saved when we stop Highway 413 to build and repair schools.

On small business, Doug Ford has once again refused to issue a third round of small business funding, even after the most difficult two years our entrepreneurs have ever faced. Ontario Liberals have repeatedly called for that support to be released.

Today’s Fall Economic Statement is proof that only Ontario Liberals can lead Ontario to a real recovery.”
