Doug Ford Government Set to Invest Millions in Horse Racing - 2019-03-25
The Ontario government recently announced that it plans to invest quite heavily in breeders and horsepeople (that is indeed the correct term and not a typographical error) going forward.
The Doug Ford government just announced plans to invest in the horse racing industry in Ontario. The government says it will provide $10 million per year to support programs for breeders and horsepeople through the Horse Improvement Program (HIP).
The move has earned some criticism, especially since the government has come under fire for making major—and drastically unpopular, for the most part—changes to the Ontario Autism Program and OSAP.
AG Caroline Mulroney said the Ontario government could only afford to give rape crisis centre $1-million out of the $4M promised by the previous Liberal government.
