is right-wing populism at its best: bread and circuses; illusory poverty reduction measures; and a calculated dismantling of government. The progressive response ought be an unapologetic defence of public services and public ownership.

Behind all those beer references in is a highly ideological attack on education at all levels. It’s intended to shut down exposure to ideas that question capitalist profit as well as muzzle minority rights. It’s calculated beyond numbers.

I find it nonsensical when the Ontario government pledges funding over a 10 year period when their mandate is for 4 years only.

Yesterday I spoke to Ontario's Standing Committee on Finance as part of consultations. Told them: 1) Raise shamefully low & rates to help people and to stimulate local economies. 1/12

I spent time at Queens Park to-day, observing the Ford Gov't budget. I've got a 200 page document to digest. I will say in advance that this is an austerity budget, but much to go through. Will be making observations through the day tomorrow.

Protect what matters most. Restore fiscal responsibility to Ontario's finances. Make Ontario open for business and open for jobs. And, above all else, always put the people first.

In a profoundly undemocratic move, the Ford government has refused the Health Coalition, entry into the budget lock up for the first time. Other organizations have also have been refused access to the budget lock up.

Budgets are a good indicator of what you value. And today we learned this government values drinking, gambling and tailgating more than the climate, mental health and housing crises we face in Ontario.

Recent cuts are appalling. Just spoke to a client of mine who fled to with $500 in their pocket. I did their hearing on a LAO cert. they are a PR now, working and contributing to the province that cut funding.

Those living in deepest poverty in Ontario -on woefully inadequate social assistance- continue to fall further behind as costs for food, rent, other essentials increase. must increase Ontario Works/ODSP rates!

Another productive consultation this morning. It was great to hear from the people in Mississauaga. Lots of good perspective and insight. Your ideas will help us work smarter, spend smarter and reinvent the way services are delivered.

Always so much more to say, but I did want to add that what business got out of this budget was a promise to significantly cut regulations fairly quickly. Cutting regulations may save business money, but often at the expense of consumers and workers safety.

The reminds me of the phrase "bread & circusses" except there's not much bread & the clown show of the circus just won't end. Booze, gambling & tailgating galore yet no mention of poverty!? What kind of frat-boy government is this!?

"It might be fun to have a party captain. But we also need someone to steer the ship," writes in this editorial about the Ford budget and the Premier's unique brand of clickbait populism.

I beg to differ. Aiming to balance budget only after the next election isn't a serious plan. Freezing education spending will hardly boost future economic growth. Confused or even incoherent would be a better description.
