The Progressive Conservative government's electricity subsidies have surged by a staggering $1.6 billion in recent months.

Finance Minister Rod Phillips delivered that jolting fiscal news Thursday at Queen's Park.

While the 2019-20 deficit remains unchanged at $9 billion, revenues have jumped by $3.1 billion since last April's budget due to a strong housing market and rising personal incomes.
