Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty threatened to take Ontario to a general election Thursday if the opposition parties couldn’t agree on a deal to pass the budget.
“This is about Ontario’s economic livelihood and our ability to continue steering the province in the right direction in these challenging times,” McGuinty said in a statement.
“It’s absolutely imperative that we pass this budget. And if we cannot pass this budget, we will take it to the people in a general election.”
