Five things to know about the Ontario government's throne speech

Todd Smith has announced the cancellation of wpd’s industrial wind turbine project in Prince Edward County

While running for office, Mr. Ford repeatedly vowed that his first act as Premier would be to fire CEO Mayo Schmidt and the board of Hydro One. "We are ending the deadlocked strike at York University so students can get back to school".

"In a time of global turmoil and change, maintaining and strengthening the bond between the people and their public representatives must always be top of mind for us all".

Interim Liberal leader John Fraser was critical of the Tory's plan to eliminate the cap-and-trade system.

The PCs say the project received approval to proceed during the election period. A local group is opposed to the turbines and warns that they will harm the rural character of the region.

"It's pretty clear that this government is bent and determined to drag this province down, to take us backwards, to take us into a race to the bottom and pull us into the last century", Horwath said.

Thompson says the government will try to find internal sources to replace the funding, which was announced in April and cut earlier this month, surprising school boards that had just begun to spend the money.


"You can count on your government to respect the men and women of Ontairo's Police Services by freeing them from onerous restrictions that treat those in uniform as suspects of suspicion and scorn", the speech says.

Smith also denied opposition accusations that the government has been inaccessible and making too many decisions quietly behind closed doors with Ford himself shying away from taking questions from media.

The strike at York University has been underway since March and during the election the Tories said they would use back-to-work legislation to end the labour dispute.

"I had difficulty getting into this media conference in the first place", Tabuns said. "I think it's deeply disappointing and I think it actually contradicts what Conservatives campaigned on", Schreiner told GuelphToday by phone after the speech.

The new Tory government has already frozen the hiring and salaries of public servants, cancelled millions of dollars in green-energy rebates for people and businesses and changed the eligibility for free pharmaceuticals under a program known as OHIP-plus. We are striking the cap-and-trade carbon tax from the books.

"He shouldn't be ending cap and trade", he said.
