Yawn, afraid of facts are we? The fact is the liberals were handed a large deficit from Eves, and turned it around into several years of surplus before the recession and the downward spiral.

The Eves deficit was temporary based on a particularly bad year for Ontario. The Economy was still in good shape to return back to surplus.

But regardless this government lies about balancing the budget in 2017 and now is facing a credit rating downgrade inorder to buy votes and continue deficits for the entire length of the mandate they're looking for.

It's a shame DoFo is ignoring Patrick Brown's platform because it's assumes the Liberals were lying about the balanced budget and pledges a modest deficit to figure things out.

This is something every government does BTW. I'm sure, should DoFo win, that he'll run a deficit claiming he wasn't aware how horrible a situation the Liberals left them in. What's good for the goose.
