TORONTO — Ontario’s Government is opening Parliament to take action to protect students and lower electricity bills.
The Speech from the Throne, delivered by Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, officially opened the 42nd Parliament and set out the government’s plan.
“We have a clear mandate from the people,” said Premier Doug Ford. “We are ending the deadlocked strike at York University so students can get back to school. We are striking the cap-and-trade carbon tax from the books. And we are cancelling unnecessary renewable energy projects to help lower your electricity bills.”
