Ontario's Liberal government will not consider raising the provincial sales tax to pay for infrastructure projects in various municipalities, the premier said Tuesday.

Kathleen Wynne flatly rejected the proposal from the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, which said its members are facing a pressing lack of funds to both maintain and improve bridges, roads and transit.
