Protecting What Matters Most

Pickering-Uxbridge MPP Peter Bethlenfalvy says upcoming provincial budget built on your ideas

As spring begins in Durham Region, your government is working hard to protect what matters most to you and your families.

Our first budget, to be tabled on April 11, builds on our important work to put communities across the province on a path to prosperity.

The previous government racked up a $15-billion deficit, a $348-billion debt that, if left unchecked, will put Ontario’s health care and education systems at risk. Ontario’s interest payments on the debt are now the fourth-largest line item on the provincial budget. That means taxpayers are spending approximately $1.4 million on interest every hour.
