Shocker: Hudak PC Candidate Slurs Immigrants

TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - Tea Party Tim Hudak's Operation Alienation swung through Burlington today, with his hand-picked candidate smearing new Canadians with the sort of language that doesn't belong in a modern, forward-looking Ontario.

Jane McKenna, a failed municipal candidate, told the Burlington Post that she opposed helping new Canadian citizens get the certification they need to work in their chosen profession. Shockingly, McKenna then went on to say:

"When did we become for immigrants?"

Here's a newsflash for McKenna, and her leader, who have piloted Ontario campaign 2011 straight into the gutter on only day three of the contest: Canada and Ontario have always been "for" immigrants.  We are, in fact, a nation of immigrants.

As former PC leader John Tory has said, Hudak has been "stirring up envy and negativity" in the election campaign.  What's worse, Tory said, Hudak himself favoured a more generous plan to assist newcomers just one year ago.  Meanwhile, the Ontario Liberal plan, Tory noted on his popular radio program, was "one of the best investments" we could make.

Hudak and McKenna's campaign of intolerance against hard-working, tax-paying citizens demeans them, and their party.  With them, Ontario would move backward, divided.  Under the leadership of Ontario Liberal leader Dalton McGuinty, Ontario can move forward, together.
