STATEMENT FROM BRUCE-GREY-OWEN SOUND MPP BILL WALKER ON THE THRONE SPEECH

“Premier Kathleen Wynne told us in her Throne Speech on Monday that she feels badly Ontarians haven’t shared in the benefits of Liberal policy decisions. Regrettably, you and your family are suffering as a result of paying higher taxes and getting fewer services.

After 15 years of waste and mismanagement, this Liberal government has run the finances of our province into the ground, doubling the debt and increasing our cost of living. My constituents are still struggling to pay their hydro bills, while the Liberals are paying a $4 -million salary to Hydro One’s CEO and handing out generous contracts for energy we don’t actually need. And, let us not forget, this government recently broke a key promise when it privatized Hydro One in order to balance the budget. They sold Hydro One, yet they are bringing in a budget with an $8 billion deficit and more debt!

Sadly, the government’s Throne Speech was like a bad re-run of the Groundhog Day movie. Families and businesses have seen their life get harder, and yet the Liberals want you to accept more of the same so they can cling to power. The Liberal government can’t be trusted any more to deliver the change and relief families and businesses need. The people of Ontario deserve better and are ready for change that puts their needs first.”
