Another broken promise was delivered by the Wynne Liberals early this afternoon, plunging the province back into a deficit. In the Liberal line-up of broken promises, an unbalanced budget is the latest addition to their record of mismanagement and waste.
How can families trust a government when they say one thing and then do the complete opposite?
It seems the only promise the Wynne Liberals can keep, is that they will continue to look out for their own political interests and their insider friends. For 15 years, they’ve put their interests first, all to the detriment of hard-working Ontario families.
Here’s what Finance Minister Charles Sousa said just months ago:
“We have outperformed and as a result we’re coming to balance next year and the year after that.”
“I will confirm that we will balance the budget. In fact, last year we beat our targets by just over $3 billion. And I will confirm that we are on track to deliver balanced budgets for the next two years as well.”
“The government is projecting balanced budgets in 2017–18 through to 2019–20.”
“We’re looking at a balanced budget in this coming budget… next year as well, and the year after that…”
“[Mr. Sousa vowed] … that the province's books will remain balanced until the end of the decade.”
