Doug Ford’s budget goes beyond austerity measures. His budget cuts mean:

335 million commitment to mental health funding, cut.

Ontario college of Midwives lost all current & future funding

OHIP reimbursement of up to $200 daily allowance for hospitalized Ontarian travellers, cut

1 billion cut from Toronto public health , which includes water testing ( remember Walkerton? )

parents are now being charged for hospital services related to autism, 

50 million in child care center funding to offset rising costs, cut

50 million tree program, and 50% budget cut to Conservation Authority flood management programs during a period where the Ottawa valley has seen 2              “ hundred year floods” in 3 years.

133 million cut from legal aid

100 million cancelled school repairs

100 million in primary school teacher salaries 

500 million in high school teacher salaries

Ontario college of Trades, closed, and where is its $20 million dollar fund?

58.6 million in cuts to libraries and the community services they provide

These are not the areas in which to make cuts, and Ford does not have the education to manage Ontario’s complex economy. These cuts effect those Ontarians who are the most vulnerable, children, low income families, immigrants, and those with mental health issues.
