Cornwall Ontario – The 2016 round of Pre-Budget Consultations by the Government of Ontario will not hold an official hearing in Cornwall as it did in 2015, however MPP Jim McDonell is determined to ensure local concerns are heard by the Ministers and departments drafting the budget documents and accompanying legislation. This is an opportunity to voice your concerns outlining how Ontario should reform its regulatory and economic policies.
“Households, community groups and businesses face daily challenges linked to Provincial policies such as rising hydro bills, reduced access to OHIP-covered health services, lengthy paperwork, compliance fees, lack of funding, regulatory bottlenecks and the proposed Carbon Tax,” MPP Jim McDonell commented.
“Residents are fed up with the countless number of agencies such as Ontario Tire Stewardship, the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA), Drive Clean, the College of Trades and many more that are making living and working in Ontario unaffordable. This is why I will hold two local pre-budget hearings in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry to give local voices a chance to be heard. I will share the feedback we collect at these consultations with my Caucus colleagues and it will help shape the PC contribution to building and amending the 2016 Ontario budget.”
