Ontario Premier Doug Ford is going ahead with modified budget cuts to municipal public health and childcare programs, saying he has listened to the concerns that prompted him to put a package of retroactive spending reductions on hold earlier this year.

The move looked unlikely to satisfy the Premier's critics, who have charged that his cuts to the organizations that track vaccinations and inspect restaurants for food safety were reckless and unfair.

In an address to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario in Ottawa on Monday morning, Mr. Ford acknowledges that his government "moved quickly" as it sought to rein in the province's finances, according to prepared remarks.
