TORONTO — The Ontario government needs to move out of the operating side of the gambling business while retaining responsibility for oversight, PC Leader Tim Hudak says.
"At a time when one million people are without a family doctor and waiting to get vital health-care services, Ontarians want their government investing in MRI scans, not buying roulette wheels or slot machines," Hudak said in a statement Monday.
The Tories will release their newest white paper — A New Deal for the Public Sector — later this week with proposals that would "focus government on the core services that matter most to taxpayers, creating a leaner public service that delivers more value for less money."
