Hudak PCs' Reckless Chainless Chain Gang Scheme Not The Way Forward
BARRIE, ON, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - The Ontario Liberal Plan is working
and will create even more jobs and opportunity for Ontario families
Premier Dalton McGuinty said 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."
In the next chapter of the Ontario Liberal Plan, we're building a new,

The Premier made his comments at an enthusiastic rally in Barrie today,
while visiting the campaign office of Karl Walsh, the Liberal candidate
in Barrie and former President of the Ontario Provincial Police
"The Ontario Liberals have been stalwart supporters of public safety,
and that's why I'm proud to stand with Dalton McGuinty," said Walsh, a
16-year veteran of the Ontario Provincial Police. "The Hudak chainless

Ontario Liberals continue to focus on the centrepiece of their plan to
build a high-skills economy with good jobs and the best health care:
education. 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.
