There are 39 announcement planned, outlining $5.7 billion in spending.

Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak says there are a number of upset  whistle-blowers who reached out to the Tories.

The Tories are calling the Budget Leaking Team a misuse of government funds because this sounds more like an election platform than a budget.

In Question Period, Premier Kathleen Wynne underlined there is a group of finance officials which make up a communications team that is in charge of the budget. She underlines every government has had something similar in the past.
