Premier Ford Welcomes New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs to Ontario
TORONTO — Today, Premier Doug Ford issued the following statement after a successful meeting with New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs:
"Premier Higgs and I are committed to working together on issues that matter to the people of New Brunswick and Ontario. We spoke about working together to get rid of trade barriers to grow interprovincial business and investment opportunities and create good local jobs.
We also addressed the need to get rid of the job-killing carbon tax, which is making life unaffordable for the people of both our provinces by forcing them to pay more for essentials, like food, gas and heating their homes.
I look forward to working with Premier Higgs and other provincial and territorial leaders at this summer's Council of the Federation meeting in Saskatoon and showing the country that Ontario is Open for Business and Open for Jobs."
