Premier Wynne fails to stand up for Ontarians in federal budget

Ontario NDP Finance Critic John Vanthof issued the following statement:

“Ontarians expected Premier Wynne to stand up for their interests in this federal budget. Instead, just like the recent health accord, Premier Wynne has settled for far less support from Ottawa than what Ontario needs. 

Our province needs stronger funding commitments from the federal government when it comes to affordable housing, infrastructure and transit, more affordable pharmacare, and equitable access to clean drinking water and education for First Nations communities. Ontarians deserve better.”
