The Premier is underlining they won't negotiate with either opposition party about the budget, stressing it will be based on Liberal principles.
Last year, the minority government had a public back-and-forth with the NDP, resulting in the third party helping to get the budget passed.
But Premier Kathleen Wynne says her government won't be doing public talks this year. She says there are things in the budget which could be supported by either the NDP or Tories.
The Tories have outlined they won't support the budget.
Finance Minister Charles Sousa says he's open to suggestions from anyone, pointing to public consultations. However, he says he hasn't heard too many ideas coming from the NDP.
The budget is expected to be tabled sometime this spring.
Sousa underlines the province is still on track to balance the budget, with plans to get rid of teh deficit by 2017-18.
