Ontario Premier Doug Ford pledged yesterday to provide $500 million in funding to build new schools and "refurbish" existing ones as part of the government's ten-year, $12 billion plan — except that's a billion dollars less than his promise in 2019.

"By making these smart investments today, we will ensure our students and teachers have access to modern facilities to learn," Ford told the media yesterday as his government announced the release of $500 million in capital investments.

There's just one problem: The government's math doesn't add up.
