JONES: ONTARIO BUDGET TRANSLATES INTO HIGHER COSTS

(Queen’s Park) – Today, Sylvia Jones MPP Dufferin-Caledon highlighted that the government’s budget will make living in Ontario more costly.

“In today’s budget the government has put forward a plan to pay for their 13 years of reckless spending on the backs of the people of Ontario,” Jones said. “This confirms what the Ontario PC Caucus has been saying all along – that life is harder under the Wynne Liberals,” Jones said.

“There seems to be no end in sight to skyrocketing energy prices as families will have to pay more for gas for their car and to heat their home,” Jones said. “Now Ontarians can expect to pay as much as $400 more per year for gasoline and $475 more per year to heat their home,” Jones said.

“Not only will energy prices rise but prescriptions will become more expensive for our province’s seniors as the deductible for the Ontario Public Drug Program will increase from $100 to $170 per year,” Jones said.

“In what should have been good news, the $30 fee to have a Drive Clean test has been dropped yet the program is still in place. How many automotive service centres will continue to provide the Drive Clean test when they are no able to charge for this service,” Jones said.

“As a result of today’s budget, life just got more expensive under the Wynne Liberals,” Jones said.
