"This budget is focused on getting Toronto moving, putting people first and keeping taxes low," said Tory.
Tory said he's very optimistic the budget will pass in March.
The tabled budget also includes:
- A request from Tory that all city departments find internal savings of two per cent for next year's budget, which amounts to about $80 million.
- An extra $433 million to fix the Gardiner Expressway, a moved that will speed up the project by eight years.
- $5 million more for emergency services response. This includes 56 new paramedics and two superintendents to improve response time.
