Ontario Finance Minister Vic Fedeli wasn’t too happy with the budget. He had two big concerns including the size of the federal deficit.

“At a $20 billion deficit we aren’t sure whether any of what they’ve promised will ever be realized and that is very, very disappointing,” he says

He says the other concerns the lack of mention in the budget on Ontario’s concern about the impact of the federal carbon tax.

“They didn’t acknowledge the key issue in Ontario and that is the carbon tax that’s coming in,” he says.
