Ontario Premier Doug Ford is banking on billions of dollars in infrastructure spending to get him re-elected to a second term in office, relying on continued deficits to fuel campaign promises.

The Ford government tabled "Ontario's Plan to Build" on Thursday, a 241-page, $198 billion document that serves both as a provincial budget and an election platform for the PC party.

With the PCs enjoying a lead in public polling ahead of the June 2 election, the budget provided few surprises that weren't pre-announced by Ford's cabinet and the premier himself in recent weeks.
