Ontario's big city leaders ask for $4 billion in aid
Leaders of the province's largest cities, say people in Ontario could face property tax increases and service cuts if upper levels of government don't provide immediate financial support to municipalities coping with massive pandemic-related costs.
The big city municipal leaders said $10 billion in aid is needed for communities across the country.
