This comes after Liberals release "pocketbook progress report"
18 0

Opposition at Queen's Park say the Liberals are scrambling and misleading the public with the release of their "pocketbook progress report."

As Newstalk 1010 told you first, the report highlights what the province considers cost-saving initiatives for your wallet including the 30 per cent tuition grant, bringing down car insurance rates by an average of six per cent and lowering generic drug prices.  It also focus on consumer initiatives, such as putting in place tighter rules for cell phone contracts.

Progressive Conservative  Finance Critic Vic Fedeli says the Liberals neglect to point out that they implemented the HST and put eco fees on electronic purchases.

"This is a government that has been hitting middle class families with more taxes, tolls, and fees at every turn that is now claiming a sudden conversion," NDP House Leader Gilles Bisson said in a written statement.

Fedeli says the only reason why the Liberals are introducing this progress report now, is to make themselves took good before your hydro rates go up.
