"In spite of Premier McGuinty's claims of spiraling health care costs and Ontario being shortchanged to the tune of $23 billion from federal coffers, the beast that ate the provincial budget isn't health care or equalization — it's tax cuts," said OAB Co-chair Hugh Mackenzie. The Harris-Eves cuts in personal income tax, corporate income tax, the Employer Health Tax and other miscellaneous tax cuts have reduced Ontario's fiscal capacity by $14.7 billion per year.
