Ontario is asking residents for their input on the budget to be tabled March 31st.
Survey questions posted today indicate major themes will be health-care staffing, transportation, jobs and the cost of living.
One question asks for thoughts on priorities, including building hospitals, hiring more staff, better home care supports, and upgrading long-term care beds.
The survey also indicates that transportation will continue to be a priority of Doug Ford’s government, with a question asking what is most important, between areas such as “highways that cut down on commute time,” improving congestion in urban areas, and cycling infrastructure.
Premier Doug Ford said he will continue finding ways to put money back into people’s pockets Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy said in a statement that it’s a critical time for the government to consider new ideas.
