IF KATHLEEN WYNNE AND THE LIBERALS ARE HIDING THE BOOKS FROM THE AUDITOR GENERAL, WHAT MORE ARE THEY HIDING FROM THE TAXPAYERS OF ONTARIO?Published on April 16, 2018
The Auditor General has shone more light on the Wynne Liberals’ “dishonest” accounting practices, saying Kathleen Wynne’s deficit would be at least $1.3 billion higher than what is being suggested in her latest Budget.
The Liberals have already broken their promise to run a balanced budget this year; Charles Sousa said that the deficit will be as much as $8 billion.
“The Auditor General’s condemnation of this government is further proof that Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals can’t be trusted when it comes to Ontario’s finances,” said Interim Opposition Leader, Vic Fedeli.
“Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals have proven time and time again they are willing to say, do, or promise anything in a desperate attempt to cling to power. That includes playing shell games with tax dollars to hide billions of dollars more of borrowed money, from the province’s books,” said Fedeli.
In the 15 years that the Liberals have been in power, they have made Ontario the most indebted province in Canada. Since 2003 our provinces debt level increased from 27% of GDP to nearly 40% presently. That represents a net debt increase of over $10,000 per person, the largest per capita increase in our country.
