TORONTO — Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he’s furious that the province won’t reconsider its decision to make funding changes for Toronto’s social programs.
He says the changes will mean cuts to vital services that affect the city’s most vulnerable residents.
The conservative mayor was fuming as he left his meeting with Finance Minister Charles Sousa, saying the province is trying to make him raise taxes.
Ford says he’s being punished for running an efficient government, while the governing Liberals continue to spend in the red.
Sousa announced last week that the province is ending a special “pooling” arrangement for Toronto to pay for welfare and disability support programs.
