The meeting between the two leaders if scheduled for 8:45 a.m. at Queen's Park.

Neither office would provide any details about the meeting — though there is wide speculation that the meeting will be devoted to Toronto's looming budget crisis.

The city appears headed for a budget shortfall of as much as $774 million in 2012.  There have been a number of ideas floated on how to meet the deficit — including laying off police officers, cutting public transportation and closing public libraries.
