The ON govt’s long-term #onpoli budget plans are based on deep cuts to public services in the years ahead, @infoFAO reported today. In its analysis of the 2021-22 budget, @infoFAO’s says per capita program spending is set to fall by $1,281 per person by decade’s end.
We're talking huge cuts. Cuts of this magnitude can only come from slashing big-ticket #onpoli spending items in the budget, starting with health, education, and social services.
Before #COVID19, @infoFAO had already reported that #onpoli program spending was already dead last in Canada, at $2,000 per person less than the average of the other provinces. Instead of climbing out of that hole, Queen’s Park is digging it deeper.
