Pledge to undo Boreal Forest Protection latest NDP betrayal
TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - More Ontarians are warning against Andrea
Horwath's hazardous plan for Ontario, Liberal MPP Linda Jeffrey
revealed today on a new website: www.HazardousHorwath.ca
Horwath continues to betray Ontario families, and our environment, and
even her own NDP stalwarts by repeatedly siding with Tim Hudak's PCs
instead of supporting positive solutions. More experts are warning
against Hazardous Horwath's toxic plans:
"I'm worried about your baby, I'm worried about my granddaughter so
[Horwath's policy] is not where I would have gone."
(Gerald Caplan, Former Ontario NDP Campaign Manager, TVO, Sept 6, 2011)
"Hudak's Conservatives and Horwath's New Democrats would increase carbon
pollution ... the Conservatives and the NDP have not committed
themselves to protecting wildlife and wildlands." (Stephen Hazell, former Executive Director of Sierra Club of Canada and
Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, September 5, 2011)
"The NDP have taken a page out of Tim Hudak's playbook by refusing to
stand up for Ontario's environment," said Liberal MPP Linda Jeffrey.
Horwath pledged yesterday to undo protection of the Boreal Forest by
scrapping the Far North Act
Horwath has sided with Tim Hudak's PCs by pledging to kill thousands of
clean energy jobs
Horwath voted with Tim Hudak against the Clean Water Act and sided with
the pesticide industry when she voted against banning toxic pesticides
The disappointing NDP platform barely touches the environment but
contains a scheme to benefit oil companies
"When women see that Andrea Horwath chooses to side with Tim Hudak's PCs
over the health of Ontarians, they don't want to be part of that,"
"Only Ontario Liberals have a positive plan to move Ontario forward."
