High-profile projects:

Basic income: The Progressive Conservatives cut short what was supposed to be a three-year experiment to give 4,000 residents an annual guaranteed income of up to $17,000 for individuals or $24,000 for couples. This hit local residents hard, with 1,000 of the participants in the Hamilton-Brantford area.

Brow lands sale for affordable housing: the province killed a (Liberal-negotiated) deal to sell brow lands — including crumbling Century Manor — to Mohawk College via the city. This yanked $9 million in sale proceeds meant for a York Boulevard mixed-income project and disappointed heritage fans hoping to see the historic manor restored.
