They campaigned on a slogan to “get it done,” pledging to build highways and transit infrastructure and open up the “Ring of Fire,” a mineral-rich area in northern Ontario.

Promise History

1.03.18 - “Cut income taxes by 20% for the second income-tax bracket, saving you up to $786 a year”

Not yet rated

Premier Doug Ford promised to cut taxes by 20% for the second income-tax bracket, which would alter its corresponding marginal tax rate from 9.15% to 7.32%. However, the tax rate for this income bracket remains at 9.15%. Given that the Ontario government has not yet acted on this promise, this promise remains not yet rated.

[Ed. Note: See table in “Data Explorer” section, under column “2019” and “2020” in row 10: 9.15%]
