Feds Try to Come to Flailing Tim's Rescue

Hat Trick Slipping Away from Stephen Harper

TORONTO, Sept. 30, 2011 /CNW/ - Conservative candidates, pundits and commentators have been asking "what went wrong with the Hudak campaign," and today federal Conservative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty tried to ride to Hudak's rescue.

While Flaherty was talking down Ontario, his own department was releasing figures showing that Canada's deficit - the one he controls - has tripled in July, compared to a year earlier.

Flaherty knows about deficits.  He was part of the last PC government that hid a $5.6 Billion deficit from Ontarians.  And now he is supporting Hudak who has a massive $14 Billion hole in his platform.

Ontario Liberals have a plan to eliminate the deficit, just like we did the last PC deficit.  Our platform contains just 1/5 the commitments of the PCs, and comes in at less than half the cost.

Given the importance of securing a new 10-year health accord to protect public health care and Jim Flaherty's desire to stand in the way of that accord in order to push the Conservative agenda of health cuts, it is abundantly clear why the Conservatives so desperately want their hat trick.
