One of the goals of the upcoming budget is to create prosperity and better services. As an elected representative, one of my primary goals working with government and the private sector is to help create jobs for those who want to work.
That’s what ‘open for business’ and ‘open for jobs’ really means. Much of it starts with fixing Ontario’s finances, restoring accountability, and trust.
It also starts with finding answers to questions like what efficiencies can be found in government? Where is the duplication? Where are we getting the best value for taxpayers? Are we making the most of every single tax dollar? People are worried about out-of-control spending and electricity rates, keeping up with taxes, and keeping their jobs.
