The mayors of more than two dozen of Ontario’s largest cities are slamming the province for passing costs onto them. The group releases a statement accusing the province of engaging in “downloading by stealth” that in turn force municipalities to consider tax increases or service cuts. The Mayors say the Ford PC’s are making the changes without any consultation and after cities have already approved their budgets. Guelph Mayor Cam Guthrie says the group supports Ontario’s efforts to eliminate the deficit, but says it can’t do so on the backs of local taxpayers without consultation. Ontario has been in a tense back-and-forth with Toronto over the public health cuts and Premier Doug Ford sent Mayor John Tory a letter today, accusing him of spreading misinformation.
