A New, Clean-Energy Economy For Ontario Families

Strong Local Team With A Strong Plan Committed To Building Best-Educated Workforce

BURLINGTON, ON, Sept. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - Premier Dalton McGuinty highlighted the Ontario Liberal Plan to build a high-skills, high-wage economy during a visit to Burlington today.

"Whether you're raising a family in Burlington, Hamilton, Oakville or anywhere in between, our plan to move forward into a better future for your family is working," McGuinty said. "Across Ontario, all families need a stronger economy to support our schools, hospitals and quality of life. Our Ontario Liberal Team is working hard to help build that quality of life."

McGuinty was joined at the event by Burlington candidate Karmel Sakran, along with fellow candidates, Sophia Aggelonitis, Mark Cripps, Ted McMeekin, Donna Tiqui-Shebib, Indira Naidoo-Harris, Kevin Flynn, Katie Trombetta and Greg Crone.

"In a world where 70 per cent of all new jobs will require a postsecondary education, we are committed to investing in our people — in their skills, in their education — to build the world's best-educated workforce," said McGuinty. "We're creating the advantage needed to compete in the new economy."

Since 2003, Ontario Liberals have been investing in students every step of the way — with things like smaller class sizes, better school buildings and programs that keep students from dropping out of high school. As a result, test scores and the graduation rate are rising.

The Ontario Liberals are creating a tuition grant that takes 30% off the average undergraduate tuition in Ontario, keeping the cost of postsecondary education affordable for lower- and middle-income families.

Investments like these are part of the Ontario Liberal Plan to build a high-skills, high-wage economy, which, in the clean-energy industry alone is creating 50,000 new jobs.

The PCs and NDP would kill the clean energy industry and tens of thousands of jobs.

The Hudak PCs have a $14 billion hole in their platform — that means deep cuts that will put our economy, education and health care at risk.  The Horwath NDP would introduce a crushing $9 billion in job-killing taxes.  Both would take Ontario off track at the worst time.
