  • Social assistance rates climbing, budget promises

About $2.2 billion over three years is earmarked for a free child care program, set to begin in fall 2020, for children aged two-and-a-half until they begin junior kindergarten. "And they go beyond election cycles", Sousa said.

"The scary thing here is they promised to have balanced budgets", he said Thursday.

The program will reimburse participants up to 80 per cent of eligible drug and dental expenses per year to a maximum of $400 per single person, $600 per couple, and $700 per family of four.

Ontario's Liberal government says it plans to fund free child care for thousands of kids across the province starting in 2020.

Premier Kathleen Wynne, Finance Minister Charles Sousa and Education Minister Indira Naidoo-Harris unveiled the $2.2-billion dollar initiative on Tuesday at a school in Toronto.

Walker is also advising people to look at the details of the Liberal's promises.

The $158.5 billion fiscal plan - coming a little more than two months before the June 7 provincial election - projects Ontario will run a $6.7 billion deficit this fiscal year and not return to balance until 2024-2025.

"Big business executives and their shareholders are actually doing fine right now, and Doug Ford should know", she said. The effort would cost the treasury $500 million a year and require people to pay up front and submit receipts to the government for reimbursement.

"While we would have appreciated a greater focus on the organizations that deliver these services, the budget does invest significant amounts in the sector that will help address a number of its challenges in serving people with disabilities and seniors", Annett said.

Both Walker and Huron-Bruce PC MPP Lisa Thompson said the government is trying to "buy votes" using taxpayer dollars. "It's time to decide if we'll keep going & make it more affordable to raise a child in Ontario- or go backwards & cut programs that make a real difference at a time when families need that support". He has repeatedly said he wants to wrest power back from the "elites" and has lambasted the Liberals for their spending.

The federal government has presently introduced full-day preschool and is now systematically including pre-school care for young children, he pointed out.
