Post-budget spending plans suggest Doug Ford's government is quietly planning to cut half a billion from the province's two main income support programs.

The budget tabled by the Ford government last month already announced plans to carve a billion dollars out of the budget of the ministry that provides funds to income support programs.

Although the budget makes no mention of cutting programs linked to "poverty" or "disabilities," the Ford government's more-recent itemized expenditure estimates for 2019-2020 show both Ontario Works and the Ontario Disability Support Program are slated for deep cuts.
