TORONTO, May 2, 2014 /CNW/ - "I'm behind Andrea Horwath and the NDP and
their decision not to support the Ontario Liberal budget," said Marty
Warren, United Steelworkers (USW) Ontario Director.
"As Andrea said, it's time for a change in Ontario. We're tired of
Liberal scandals and corruption. We're tired of Liberals who
over-promise and under-deliver," said Warren. "Unlike our current
premier, workers in Ontario live in the real world. Workers know that
Andrea speaks for them."
Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and the NDP Caucus announced today
that they will vote against the Ontario Liberal budget, likely
resulting in an imminent provincial election call.
"NDP Leader Andrea Horwath is on a roll. She's been winning by-election
after by-election, doubling the size of the NDP Caucus since she became
leader in 2009," said Ken Neumann, USW National Director.
"We know Tim Hudak is no friend of working people. His anti-worker
policies would harm our economy and cause unnecessary instability,"
"The people of Ontario will soon have a choice. For working people in
Ontario, that choice is clear: Andrea Horwath and the NDP," said
"All the goodies in this budget are a tired Liberal ploy for votes. The
people of Ontario deserve better. Andrea Horwath will work hard for
jobs and affordability. She's a leader we can trust," said Warren.
