Ford promises new Northlander to Nipissing voters - 2018-05-04
"If you want to put it toward infrastructure, put it toward infrastructure. If you want to build a community centre, build a community centre," said Ford. "The money is going to stay wherever it comes from. It's about giving the freedom to the people in those communities to spend the money the way they want."
Ford received cheers and applause when he reiterated his party's plans for reducing hydro rates by 12 per cent "right off the bat" both as a means of reducing family expenses and promoting profitable businesses.
"We're going to make sure that we can attract new businesses and be competitive. We're in a world economy now. We're not competing with the people down the street any longer and we have to make sure that our businesses thrive," he said.
