Laurie Scott says she is not supporting the 2017 provincial budget. The Wynne government released it yesterday afternoon, and the MPP for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock says the numbers are misleading. She says the Wynne Liberals are hiding a $5 billion operational deficit and claiming the budget is balanced.

Scott also notes no funding was announced for long-term care beds, when over 4,000 people are waiting for one in the area. She says the budget didn’t address any of the issues she wrote to the government about, including ending the Hydro crisis, and how the debt will be paid off.
