TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW/ - Four days ago, Alan Wilson, Tim Hudak's
hand-picked candidate in Peterborough said that he was only interested
in "our own people."
Three days ago, Jane McKenna, Tim Hudak's hand-picked candidate in
Burlington asked "when did we become for immigrants?"
Instead of repudiating these statements and firing these two candidates,
Tim Hudak has chosen to endorse them, attending a campaign rally in
Peterborough on Thursday evening and joining a tele-townhall on Sunday
Tim Hudak's lack of leadership has gone on long enough. It's time for
him to fire these two candidates and apologize to the millions of
Ontarians who have immigrated to Canada and deserve better than the
disgusting and desperate rhetoric being put out by the Hudak PCs.
"This is the politics of fear, anger, envy and resentment, and Ontarians
deserve better than that. Tim Hudak needs to step up and fire these
candidates, so we can move past this sad episode."
-Linda Jeffrey, Liberal Candidate (Brampton-Springdale)
