BUDGET BILL BLUES – Ontario Budget Bill’s Schedule 28

Ontario is proceeding with it’s Provincial  budget discussions on an eerily similar path to budget discussions in Ottawa this week.  Included in Ontario’s budget bill is a section called Schedule 28.  Citizen groups, including the Ontario Health Coalition, the Council of Canadians and the Social Planning Network of Ontario are raising alarm bells. The groups are calling Schedule 28, tucked in to  the 327 paged omnibus budget bill, an “attempt to hide a massive privatization agenda” .   Media Release and Backgrounder can be accessed here.  It should be noted that municipalities are referenced in Bill.
