Doug Ford moves ahead with Ontario municipal funding cuts in 2020 - 2019-08-19
The Progressive Conservative government tried to force retroactive funding cuts this year but had to cancel them after municipal leaders complained their annual budgets had already passed.
The new plan will see all municipalities — including Toronto — pay 30 per cent of the public health-care costs. Under the initial plan, Toronto would be on the hook for 50 per cent of the cost.
Starting on Jan. 1, 2020, municipalities will also have to pay 20 per cent of the cost of creating new child-care spaces, which the province previously fully funded.
