Ontario Child Care, Dental Plan Could Be Axed In PC Economic Statement

UPDATE: All of the spending outlined in this article was scrapped by the Progressive Conservative government on Nov. 15, 2018.

Universal child care is among the programs promised by the Ontario Liberals that may be on the chopping block come Thursday.

Progressive Conservative Finance Minister Vic Fedeli will table the Fall Economic Statement, essentially a mini-budget that will outline the province’s expenses and revenue. He’s said the document will “turn the page on 15 long years of tax-and-spend Liberal policies.”

The statement should outline how much money the PCs have already saved by cutting Liberal projects like the basic income pilotplanned university campusesin the Greater Toronto Area, prescription coverage for young people who have private insurance, and mental health funding.

And the update may very well bring more cuts.
