Fund earmarked for school repairs axed

TORONTO—Ontario's new Tory government has cancelled a $100-million fund earmarked for school repairs this year—a cut that comes as a result of Doug Ford's campaign promise to scrap the province's cap-and-trade system.

School boards were notified on July 3 that the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund would be eliminated and that only work contracted on or before that date would be covered.
