Ontario Budget: Why Prize Casinos Over MRI Scans?

Ontario is in a deep fiscal hole. Without urgent action, we're staring at a $30 billion deficit and a $411 billion debt in just a couple of years. So if we really care about a stronger Ontario we've also got to care about our public debt -- and then do something about it. It's time for government to exit the distracting and unnecessary business of being in business: things like designing and selling lottery tickets and putting wine bottles on shelves. Honestly, what's more important: Roulette wheels for shiny new casinos -- or more MRI scans and cancer-beating drugs on the formulary?
