Only Ontario Liberals Will Build New Economy with Good Jobs

Premier McGuinty Visits MacDonald Dettwiler In Brampton

BRAMPTON, ON, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Ontario Liberals will move quickly to accelerate job creation in the face of perilous economic times, Premier Dalton McGuinty told a crowd here today.

"Our plan is working. Ontario's economy 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.  "In the coming days, we'll be talking about our plan to ensure that Ontario families have what they need to respond to future economic challenges."

The Premier made his comments during a tour of Brampton's MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates, Ltd., which Ontario has supported. The company builds advanced communications and space technology as well as robotic arms used for performing surgery. The Brampton facility designed and built the celebrated Canadarms 1 and 2, used by NASA and the International Space Station.

Ontario Liberals stood by hundreds of thousands of families in the last recession to protect jobs, and now Ontario is creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs.

"With the uncertainty and turmoil in the global economy and the renewed threat of recession, Ontario Liberals will move forward with specific measures to create jobs, building on the successful programs that helped Ontario families through the last recession," McGuinty said.

The Hudak PCs have $14 billion in unfunded giveaways and tax cuts that would mean deep cuts to hospitals and schools. The Horwath NDP would introduce a crushing $9 billion in job-killing taxes. Both would take us off track at the worst time.

"Now is not the time for experimentation or political expedience. Only Ontario Liberals have a plan for moving Ontario forward, together," McGuinty said.
