'Unwilling to move forward in partnership': Trudeau, Morneau slam Ford government in post-budget tour - 2019-03-22
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Bill Morneau are out selling their pre-election budget to the country — but they're also using the opportunity to blast Ontario's Ford government as obstructionist and committed to faulty economic logic.
At a Thursday funding announcement in Mississauga, Ont., Trudeau directly called out the government of Premier Doug Ford for what he called its sluggish response to an offer of federal infrastructure funding.
"That's not fair. Here in Ontario it's been over a year since we signed an agreement with the fund, with the province, for more than $11 billion in federal funding and we still haven't received a single project for approval," the prime minister said.
