The budget is expected to include details on limited wine sales in grocery stores, and firm up the Liberals' plan to eliminate the $7.5 billion deficit in just two years.
NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is worried the Liberals will continue to freeze hospital budgets and make more cuts to health services, and says the budget should raise corporate income taxes.
Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown says his party will offer its ideas for what should be in the budget next week.
The Tories warn the Liberals will kill jobs and slow economic growth with their new provincial pension plan and their cap-and-trade system to put a price on carbon.
