John Vanthof was on his feet in the Ontario Legislature today, criticizing the Ford government during the final Question Period before the June 2nd election.
The NDP member for Timiskaming-Cochrane says an independent watchdog indicates that the Conservatives only kept 37 percent of their promises from the 2018 campaign. He lists issues like a reduced cost of electricity; long term care improvements; and affordable housing.
“The PCs might have campaigned on these promises four years ago, but Ontarians haven’t seen the results,” Vanthof said. “They didn’t get a government that made life more affordable. They talk about it, but they didn’t do it, especially when people’s hydro bills and housing costs skyrocketed.”
“And they didn’t get a government that kept their promises, because the PCs only kept 37% of them. Almost two out of the three things they said didn’t happen. Ontarians need a government that will fix what’s broken.”
Several Ford ministers countered that the New Democrats consistently vote against any ideas from their government.
The next government – be it PC, NDP or Liberal – will be elected on June 2nd.
