Ford leaves folks struggling with crush of grocery, housing, utility costs: NDP

Published on November 13, 2022

QUEEN’S PARK — Interim Ontario NDP Leader Peter Tabuns released the following statement in response to Doug Ford’s gas tax announcement:
“Ontarians are getting crushed by the skyrocketing cost of groceries, housing and utility bills, and they need more help. Instead of helping folks afford basics like food and heating, Doug Ford is doubling down on a gas tax scheme that doesn’t even guarantee drivers will see so much as a penny in savings. We should be bringing back and expanding real rent control. We should be doubling social assistance rates. We should be helping people curb their natural gas bills. We should be taking on greedy corporations that are using the guise of inflation to gouge people.”
