Hudak PCs Oppose Enhanced Breast Cancer Screening

Budget vote shows Ontario PC priorities 

QUEEN'S PARK, ON, April 6 /CNW/ - Today, Ontario PC "Leader" Tim Hudak and his caucus showed exactly what they stand for, when they voted against the Ontario Budget which includes funding for 90,000 additional breast cancer screening exams. The PCs also voted against: 

  • 60,000 additional post-secondary spaces and a commitment to find a space for every qualified student
  • $44 million for literacy and basic skills programs
  • A comprehensive children's mental health strategy
  • A permanent risk management program for farmers in Ontario
  • Continuing the upload of costs from municipal budgets, easing the load on property taxpayers
  • The continuation of a wide range of tax cuts for individuals and business', as well as tax credits for seniors and families
  • A $3 billion reduction in the deficit from 2010 projections

"Tim Hudak and the PCs like to talk about helping Ontario families, but they consistently oppose every initiative we've taken to do just that," said Liberal MPP Bob Chiarelli. "Today's vote goes to show that no matter what he says, Hudak's priorities just don't match up with Ontarians priorities." 

"As Ontario turns the corner, this budget builds on past investments and will continue Ontario's economic growth and recession recovery," continued Chiarelli. "Meanwhile, Hudak is delaying his platform release to appease his federal cousins, and won't show Ontarians his plan." 

"The contrast couldn't be clearer."
