The Ontario PCs said the budget will include no new taxes and will allow the government to provide a “projected $26 billion in much-needed relief to individuals, families and businesses over six years, and eliminate the deficit.”

In a statement, Ford said that the province has sent “a clear message to the world that Ontario is open for business. While there is a lot of work left to do, we’re off to a great start.”

And of course, the internet wasted no time chiming in with its thoughts on what went down, as well.

The provincial government says it is forecasting a deficit of $11.7 billion in 2018-19. That figure represents a $3.3 billion improvement from the $15 billion that was left behind by the previous government, according to its “Big Fiscal” predictions outlined in the document.
