The Fraser Institute/Media Advisory: New Study Spotlighting Ontario's Debt Compared to California's Coming Tuesday, March 18

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 03/17/14 -- The Fraser Institute will release a new study Tuesday, March 18, examining the relative size and future of Ontario's government debt compared to that of California.

California is widely considered to be one of North America's most fiscally irresponsible jurisdictions but recently sought to right its financial ship through cuts to government spending and large income and sales tax hikes.

Meanwhile, the study, Ontario vs. California Debt Burdens, notes that Ontario, with a fraction of California's population and a significantly smaller economy, carries a debt load almost twice as large as the Golden State.

What does the future hold for Ontario? Can it get its debt under control?

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on Tuesday, March 18 at 6:30 a.m. (EST).

Sean Speer, Fraser Institute associate director of fiscal studies, will be in Toronto and available to media on Monday, March 17 and Tuesday, March 18.
