AGAR: Don't like government cuts? Offer alternatives

Ontario has a severe debt problem because too few politicians and special interest groups care to solve it.

A case in point is reaction to last Thursday afternoon’s announced cuts.

The Ontario government is cutting by $1 billion from Toronto Public Health’s funding over a decade as part of a plan to consolidate local public health units across the province.

The second cuts funding for Ontario’s two public library services by half.

The province has an $11.7-billion deficit with debt approaching $350 billion. Ontario’s taxpayers are giving up $1 billion worth of their hard earned income every month just to pay the interest on the debt. Something has to be done. Cuts have to be made.

It is fair to say that Doug Ford and the PCs were elected to address the issue.
