(Fox News) Ford campaign spokesperson Kia Nejatian tells Fox News that Ontario Premier Doug Ford is willing to move the target in his child-care deal, but will not accede to the demands of the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF).
“Toronto and Windsor need to rely on us to negotiate the best deal for Ontario families. Doug Ford has never said a thing about what the budget will or will not contain,” Nejatian said.
Nejatian pointed out that Ford has pledged to zero out all net corporate tax rates by 2022, to cancel the carbon tax in January 2019, and to cut the corporate tax rate to 15 percent by 2020.
He said Ford would cut Ottawa’s contribution to infrastructure across the province from 100 percent to 25 percent, but he won’t reduce the contribution made by Toronto and Windsor by a similar percentage.
Ford is angry at the presence of CAW Pension Plan employees in the province.
“The federal government has a tax on Ontario families. But the NDP is not standing up to Ottawa because of automatic enrollment in their pension plan. But the Liberals are refusing to fight for Ontario families because the government has built up massive debt, and wants to hang on to the Liberal and CAW pensions,” Nejatian said.
