Ontario Liberal Plan Creating 50,000 Jobs

Samsung's 4TH New Manufacturing Plant Thanks To Liberal Clean-Energy Plan

LONDON, ON, Sept. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - The Ontario Liberal Plan has delivered 20,000 new clean-energy jobs for Ontario families and is on track to create 50,000 by the end of 2012, Premier Dalton McGuinty announced today.

"Our plan is building the most knowledgeable, highly skilled workforce around — and that's helping to create a clean-energy economy," said McGuinty. "I want to thank Samsung for their vote of confidence in our plan — in Ontarians' skills and education, which is our greatest advantage when it comes to competing in the global economy and building that clean-energy economy here at home."

Samsung C&T is opening three manufacturing plants in Toronto, Tillsonburg and Windsor, and those three will produce solar inverters, wind turbines and blades.

Today Premier McGuinty announced that a fourth new manufacturing plant is opening in London, which will deliver 200 good new jobs to local families, and produce solar modules.

"Samsung is proud to be a part of Ontario's growing clean economy," said Mr. Cheol-Woo Lee, Senior Executive Vice President, Samsung C&T Corporation. "We look forward to utilizing the cutting-edge skills of workers here in London to bringing renewable energy to residents in Ontario and a prosperous green future for us all."

McGuinty made the announcement after meeting with students at the University of Western Ontario's Chemistry Department.  These students are preparing to find careers in the clean-energy industry — a sector that has already attracted more than $20 billion in new private-sector investment.

"Ontario is on track for a stronger future," said McGuinty. "The opposition would take us off track by killing those clean-energy jobs. The Hudak PCs $14 billion hole would also mean deep cuts to education, depriving us of the highly skilled workers who attract companies like Samsung. The Horwath NDP would introduce a crushing $9 billion in job-killing taxes.  Both would take Ontario off track at the worst time. Our bold plan would position Ontario to become North America's biggest manufacturer of clean technology. This is the way forward, together."
