On Thursday, Ford claimed his Progressive Conservatives "inherited a $15-billion disaster" from the previous Liberal government they defeated in June 2018.

The premier added that "we confirmed it with the auditor general, with third-party validation through an auditing firm, we confirmed it with the finance minister, the president of the treasury, and we all agreed."

But auditor general Bonnie Lysyk always maintained the provincial deficit that year was at most $11.7 billion.
