Ontario’s debt drives Wynne’s decisions

Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government now says it won’t force the board making investments for her new mandatory provincial pension plan to buy into Ontario infrastructure projects.

“They’ll invest where they see fit,” Finance Minister Charles Sousa said Wednesday in deciding where to put the $3.5 billion a year the plan will take from three million workers and their employers.

That’s not what was suggested in Sousa’s 2014 budget.
