MISSISSAUGA, ON – Mississauga-Streetsville MPP Nina Tangri recently celebrated the one-year anniversary since Ontario’s Government for the People took office and working for the people of Mississauga-Stretsville to put their interests first.
Along with the entire PC team, Mississauga MPPs renewed their commitment to respect
taxpayers, encourage job creation, and put people first. To date, over 250 initiatives have been implemented by the government, including charting a reasonable and responsible path to a balanced budget that protects the core services the people of Mississauga and people across Ontario rely on every day. “Since day one, our Government for the people has been moving quickly and swiftly to take action on issues that matter for the people of Ontario,” said MPP Tangri.
“Whether it was recalling the legislature in the summer months to ensure students at York University could get back to class, ending the carbon tax to put money back in people’s pockets, creating long-term care beds to help alleviate hallway healthcare, supporting our police officers to keep communities safe, implementing tax credits for families and seniors, or making record-breaking investments into transit and infrastructure; we are working hard to deliver on our promises to the people of Ontario.”
Over the past year, the government has delivered on a number of campaign commitments that put more money back in people’s pockets, including:
• Introducing a 10% decrease in tuition for students for the first time in Ontario’s history.
• Introducing free rides for children 12 and under on GO Transit, introducing daily service
to and from Niagara Falls, and bringing in the largest service increase in five years.
• Ensuring minimum wage workers pay no personal income tax in Ontario, saving them up
to $800 a year.
