Ford Meet And Greet In Brockville

Doug Ford is set to make a stop in Brockville Tuesday.

He will be at the Chateau Brock starting at 12:30pm for a meet-and-greet.

During an event in Ottawa on Monday, the Ontario PC Leader said if elected premier, he’d cut taxes for the lowest-paid people in the province.

“Under the PC government, if you’re making minimum wage, you will pay zero per cent tax,” Ford said. “We will introduce a minimum wage tax credit so those struggling just to get ahead will pay no taxes whatsoever.”

The Progressive Conservative Party says the pledge will cost the government roughly $500-million per year and would be fully implemented by January 1, 2019. The tax credit would apply to full- and part-time workers as well as students making minimum wage.

The Brockville stop comes ahead of the provincial election June 7.
