Ontario Premier Doug Ford is set to put his mark on the province with his government's first budget this week, which is set to tackle the province's deficit and feature everything from childcare rebates to new licence plates to tailgating at sporting events.

Details of Thursday's provincial budget are beginning to slip out, and are expected to include significant changes to critical services and more symbolic moves that are representative of the Ford brand – such as placing anti-carbon-tax stickers on gas pumps across the province.

"The Premier and the Ford government have said from the very start, they're going to prove to average folks who voted for them that they're acting in their interest, and they're going to do things big and small to make that point," said conservative strategist Chad Rogers, a partner at Crestview Strategies in Toronto.
