Statement from Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford on the Wynne Liberals’ Throne Speech

“The problem with Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal government is that they will say and promise anything to stay in power. We saw this in the Throne Speech this afternoon. Today, the Premier wrote a lot of cheques. Having looked at the finances, I can tell the people of Ontario that these cheques are going to bounce.

“Kathleen Wynne has made commitments on billions in new spending for expensive re-election promises in a desperate attempt to try and save her government. The Liberals are trying to buy votes from a few of us, instead of trying to fix our province for all of us.

“Ontario is the most indebted province or state in the world. We can’t afford to further mortgage our future any longer.

“It’s time for a change in Ontario. Only the Ontario PC Party can be trusted to respect the taxpayer and bring jobs and prosperity back to Ontario.”
