Health Minister Christine Elliott is under fire for cutting $335 million from planned mental health funding in Ontario this year.

With the defeat of the previous Liberal government on June 7, Premier Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives have cancelled former premier Kathleen Wynne's promised $2.1 billion in additional mental health services over four years.

Instead, the Tories are adding $1.9 billion over the next 10 years, which matches federal funding for mental health.
