“Repeated incompetence”: NDP’s Fife slams Ford for mismanaging budget

QUEEN'S PARK — NDP MPP Catherine Fife (Waterloo), the Official Opposition Finance critic, responded to the latest Financial Accountability Office (FAO) budget outlook report which exposes the Ford government's chronic mismanagement and indifference to the financial crises they have created in Ontario:

"The FAO report paints a bleak picture of a government that not only mismanages the province's budget but also refuses to acknowledge the financial crises they've created," said Fife. "Despite Doug Ford's claims of building a better Ontario, the reality is that we're seeing huge shortfalls in almost every sector, leaving Ontarians struggling to access basic public services.”

"The Conservative government's incompetence and ineffectiveness are laid bare for all to see in this report. Doug Ford's vision of a better Ontario seems reserved only for his wealthy insiders, not everyday people."
