The federal Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie says she feels cuts to Ontario's Ministry of Francophone Affairs are a "cheap shot."

On Thursday, the first budget under Progressive Conservative Premier Doug Ford was released. It included cuts to several ministries, including the Ministry of Francophone Affairs which will have its budget reduced to $5.8 million from $6 million.

Last fall, the Ford government cut funding for a planned French language university and rolled in the position of the French language services commissioner into the office of the Ombudsman.
