Thomas wonders about ‘budget promises’

OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas speaks to reporters at Queen's Park.

OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas says the Ontario budget released on March 28 was a "missed opportunity" to invest in a better Ontario for all Ontarians. He told 680News that the budget seems primarily aimed at helping the government get re-elected. 

“There’s a lot of promises,” Thomas said. “A lot of the promises are back-ended. A lot are multi-year. A lot don’t kick in until 2019. The political spin will be, ‘If you want all of this, you’ve got to vote for us.'"
