Today, @LGLizDowdeswell will deliver the Speech from the Throne, outlining our government's priorities for the people of Ontario during the upcoming legislative session. Follow along at #ThroneSpeech.
Every seat in the legislature ultimately belongs to the people. The power exercised here must always be exercised with the people’s best interest in mind. #ThroneSpeech
Our government that recognizes that this mandate comes with high expectations. Not just in the policies it advances. But also in the manner in which it conducts itself. #ThroneSpeech
We must move past the politics of division and look behind differences in race, region, language, gender, religion, sexual orientation, lifestyle or creed because all of us are Ontarians and Canadians first. #ThroneSpeech
You should not be forced to pay more and work harder to make life easier for your government. Instead, your government should be working harder, smarter and more efficiently to make life better for you. #ThroneSpeech
No dollar is better spent than the dollar that is left in the pockets of the taxpayer. That is why we will reduce gas prices, lower your hydro bills and provide meaningful, necessary tax relief to parents, small businesses and the working poor. #ThroneSpeech
We are scrapping the cap and trade carbon tax here in Ontario and opposing other carbon tax schemes in all of their forms. #ThroneSpeech
In a time of economic uncertainty, a punishing carbon tax is the last thing Ontario families can afford. We will use every tool at its disposal to fight those who would hurt Ontario families and jobs by imposing such a tax on our province. #ThroneSpeech
By lowering taxes, reducing the regulatory burden and making life easier for entrepreneurs, your government will make sure the world knows that Ontario is open for business. #ThroneSpeech
The era of accounting tricks and sleight of hand must end. We will call a commission of Inquiry into the financial practices of government to identify the ways through which others have sought to avoid accountability for their actions. #ThroneSpeech
We will act swiftly to restore public confidence in Ontario’s electricity system – starting with Hydro One. #ThroneSpeech
We will respect parents, teachers and students by getting back to basics and replacing failed ideological experiments in the classroom. #ThroneSpeech
We will respect the men and women of Ontario’s Police Services by ensuring they have the tools and support they need to enforce the law and protect innocent families from the menace of drug, gun and gang related violence. #ThroneSpeech
We will respect consumers and trust adults to make the responsible choices that work best for them and expand the sale of beer and wine to convenience stores, grocery stores and big box stores. #ThroneSpeech
Ontario has everything it needs to succeed. Abundant natural resources. World class health care and education systems. The good fortune to sit at the cross roads of global and continental trade. And the greatest, hardest working people in the world. #ThroneSpeech
A new day has dawned in Ontario. A day of prosperity and opportunity for everyone. Help is here. #ThroneSpeech
