Statement on Beer Subsidies

Published on August 27, 2018

“Doug Ford is more concerned about subsidizing big brewers than he is about families’ urgent priorities. Ford’s photo-op on Monday does nothing to help the families hurt by his cuts to education, housing, and social assistance. While spending on beer subsidies, Ford is cutting mental health funding by $330 million every year. And while spending on beer subsidies, Ford is cancelling much needed school repairs. Ontarians deserve a government that invests in their priorities — not in pet projects cooked up in back rooms to benefit just a few insiders.”
