Canada: Ontario Liberals highlight budget mistake in NDP's election platform

Toronto, May 14 (IBNS): The Ontario Liberals have highlighted a budget mistake of $5.7 billion in the New Democratic Party's (NDP's) election platform, media reports said.

The Liberals have highlighted the mistake on Monday.

The NDP's election platform was built on the 2018-2019 budget tabled by the Liberals in March.

Though the budget was made of $140.2 billion, the actual programme spending is $145.9 billion.

The officials said the NDP probably has deducted $5.7 billion dollar in new spending initiatives.

However, NDP leader Andrea Horwath countered the Liberals on Monday morning.

She has been quoted by CBC News as saying, "Anybody who thinks that the Liberals numbers are sound hasn't been paying attention to what they've been doing at Queen's Park for the last number of years."

Horwath has also ruled out any possibility to form a coalition government with the Liberals.
