Andrea Horwath would have Shuttered Bombardier

Voted in Toronto against Thunder Bay Bombardier Jobs

THUNDER BAY, ON, Sept. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Andrea Horwath has a lot of nerve visiting Bombardier in Thunder Bay given her record of voting in Toronto against the investments that helped create the jobs in the first place, Liberal MPP Michael Gravelle said today.

"If Andrea Horwath had her way, there would be no new subway cars, no new GO trains, and no good-paying jobs at Bombardier," said Gravelle.  "The NDP talks the talk in northern Ontario, but does the exact opposite in Toronto."

In 2006, Horwath stood in the house and voted against investing $838 million in transit, including Toronto's Spadina subway extension.

Then in 2008, she stood and voted against a $382 million investment including funding to replace and renew GO transit equipment.

"Andrea Horwath had the chance to support Thunder Bay families, instead she played politics with Tim Hudak's PCs and voted against us," said Gravelle.

Gravelle pointed to other job-killing NDP policies including a crushing $9 billion tax hike on business and Horwath's protectionist mining scheme that will kill jobs by shutting Ontario's doors to global mineral investment.

"Ontario created 40,000 jobs in June alone.  Ontario's economy is on track, but the NDP's reckless tax hikes will put us off track at the worst of times," added Gravelle.

"Ontarians remember what the NDP did to Ontario when thousands joined the ranks of the unemployed.  They did it before and they'll do it again," concluded Gravelle.  "Only the Ontario Liberal plan will move the province forward, together."
