Collectively we chose to cut Social & Health Services so that we could increase budgets in other areas. How much did we actually choose to cut?
Information through community forums clearly told Londoners that the province is reducing its funding to the city in this area by $3,000,000 (rounded).
In addition, we chose to reduce funding through property taxes by another $3,000,000. That was solely a City of London choice.
The choice made was for a reduction in social and health services by a total of $6,000,000. Will we remember this choice in a couple of years when we feel the effects?
