Tim Hudak Addresses Inaugural Toronto Leader's Dinner

Tim Hudak's Pledge to Ontario: "We Will Put the Economy First"

TORONTO, May 17 /CNW/ -

NEWS:

Tonight Tim Hudak addressed the 2010 Ontario PC Leader's Dinner. In his remarks, Hudak shared details about how an Ontario PC Government will put conservative principles to work to help create jobs, grow Ontario's economy and help Ontario families struggling with a rising cost of living.

Hudak contrasted Dalton McGuinty's increasingly out-of-touch, high-tax, meddling administration to what Ontario families could expect from a PC Government. An Ontario PC Government will focus on the basics - lower taxes, less waste, reduced regulatory burden and level playing field for families and businesses.

In a sign of growing momentum, the 2010 Leader's Dinner had the highest ticket sales, turnout, and fundraising results since the 2007 election.

QUOTES:

"We will cut taxes to give families some relief from the HST, the health tax and all of the new fees Dalton McGuinty forces them to pay." -- Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak

"I believe in lower taxes. I believe that with just a little discipline, we can make a difference and cut wasteful government spending. I believe in a fair playing field where you don't need a government hand-out to make a go of it - and the government won't get in your way." -- Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak

    
    QUICK FACTS:

    -   The 2010 Toronto Leader's Dinner builds on Tim Hudak's efforts to
        reach out to more Ontario voters. The speech will be liveblogged with
        real time updates on both Twitter and Facebook. The Speech will also
        be made available on Tim Hudak's iPhone application - the first of
        its kind in Canada.

    -   Ontario's GDP grew by 10 percent over the last seven years, while
        Dalton McGuinty increased government spending by a staggering 70
        percent.

    -   It took 23 Ontario premiers 136 years to accumulate our first $148
        billion in debt. Dalton McGuinty is on course to double that number
        by 2012-2013.
