Forward, Together, McGuinty Tells Cheering Crowd In Vaughan
VAUGHAN, ON, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - The Ontario Liberal Plan is working
and Ontarians are moving forward, together, Premier Dalton McGuinty
told a cheering crowd of more than a thousand people here today.
"What we are building, together, is nothing short of amazing. These are
perilous times in the global economy, yet we continue to make
progress," McGuinty said.
"Our plan is working. Ontario has created almost 300,000 full-time jobs
since the global recession — more full-time jobs this year than the
rest of Canada combined," said McGuinty.

"We're creating the advantage needed to compete in the new economy. In a
world where 70 per cent of all new jobs will require a postsecondary
education, we are committed to investing in our people — in their
skills, in their education — to build the world's best-educated
workforce," said McGuinty.
Education has always been the centrepiece of the Ontario Liberal Plan to
build a high-skills economy with good jobs and the best health care.
The Ontario Liberal Plan will protect the gains our province has made
since 2003, keep postsecondary school affordable, improve health care
and make it easier for seniors' to stay in their own homes and invest
in jobs of the future.
"Now is not the time for experimentation or political expedience. We
need strong, steady leadership. Only the Ontario Liberals have a plan
to move us forward, together," McGuinty said.
