Ford wants new federal government to help pitch in on services for Ontario municipalities, people

“Ontarians need and expect our governments to work with our municipal partners to build new and needed hospital infrastructure, create long-term care beds for our aging population, address gridlock and congestion on our roads and to build affordable housing for young people and families.”               – Ontario Premier Doug Ford

A Statement from Ontario Premier Doug Ford on the Federal Election 

Posted October 22nd, 2019 on Niagara At Large 

Toronto — Today (October 22nd) Doug Ford, Premier Of Ontario, Issued The Following Statement: 

“I want to congratulate Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on his re-election, and congratulate all federal leaders on a hard fought campaign to ensure Canadians’ voices are heard on the important issues facing this country. 

Our government looks forward to working with the Prime Minister, and with all federal parties, to build better public services and to make life more affordable and prosperous for Ontarians and all Canadians.  

This Ford government sticker is a shot at one of the federal Liberal government’s efforts to place a price on climate-changing carbon pollution by, in part, demonizing it as a “tax.” Ford is continuing to fight the so-called “carbon tax” in the courts.

We stand ready to work with the federal government on important shared priorities, including building critical infrastructure for the future, breaking down barriers to trade, ensuring better access to mental health services, and investing in health care, education and other vital public services. 

Our Government is further encouraged by the Prime Minister’s commitment on the campaign trail to fund the federal government’s share of the all-new Ontario line subway project. 

Ontarians need and expect our governments to work with our municipal partners to build new and needed hospital infrastructure, create long-term care beds for our aging population, address gridlock and congestion on our roads and to build affordable housing for young people and families. 

I look forward to working with Prime Minister Trudeau and to continuing to work with the federal government to deliver on the priorities that matter most to the people of Ontario.”
