STATEMENT ON ONTARIO CREDIT DOWNGRADE

July 6, 2015

Ontario PC Finance Critic and Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli issued the following statement
upon news of the S & P downgrade of Ontario’s credit rating today:

“The Wynne Liberals had a chance with the 2015 Budget to listen to the
experts and change direction, but chose not to. Today’s downgrade
acknowledges that Ontario’s deficit has grown from $9.2 billion to $10.5
billion to $10.9 billion under Kathleen Wynne, and that Ontario does not
have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. It also shows there
are consequences to fiscal mismanagement. Higher borrowing costs mean
less money available for the things Ontarians care about, like health care
and education.”
