TORONTO – Ontario is cutting more than $70 million from eHealth's budget ahead of a major health system merger, and millions in health research funding is drying up.

The numbers are contained in a detailed spending plan that the government tabled Thursday following last month's budget.

Though the Progressive Conservative government's overall spending package is up nearly $5 billion from the last Liberal budget, it contains cuts to a host of programs and services, as the Tories attempt to eliminate an $11.7 billion deficit.
