A Liberal Party-managed fund for carpentry and construction is paying out more than $100 million in taxpayer funds to investors.
The fund, which will continue to pay out about $10 million a year, was created in the 2016 election campaign, and has been used to buy and lease building materials.
It also gives out about a third of a million dollars annually to political parties, unions and charities.
The Liberal Party says it has made $500 million of its own funds available to fund projects in the community over the past two years.
It says the money will be used to improve the community and its facilities.
The new fund, created by the former government, will be administered by the Ontario Ministry of Labour.
The fund will also have a role in the provincial government’s ongoing plans to expand the province’s carpentered community.
The Liberals will have to find about $15 million annually to fund the $4.4 billion project to replace the Gardiner Expressway.
The project is slated to be completed by 2024.
