Ontario Budget 2013: A Fair and Prosperous Ontario

Presenting Ontario's Budget was a true honour for me and I am humbled by the opportunity to serve the people of Ontario. I'm proud of the work this government is doing to beat our fiscal targets and continue to invest in the things that matter most to people every day. In addition, Ontario has created almost 400,000 jobs since the depths of the global recession, recovering all of the jobs lost during those dark days. Ontario enjoys strong fundamentals and we are committed to eliminating the deficit by 2017-18. We believe a balanced approach is the right approach.
