Hudak not telling the truth on his "foreign workers" comments

TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Tim Hudak is not telling the truth, again, about his "foreign workers" divisive language.

In tonight's Leaders Debate, Hudak denied ever using the language in the first place, and repeated the lie that the No Skills Left Behind qualifications were changed.

REALITY CHECK: Premier Dalton McGuinty appeared on CP24 on September 6th - the day before the election began - and said clearly this program will apply to Canadian Citizens - "of course you've got to be a citizen."

For six more days, Hudak and his team continued to call Canadian citizens "foreign workers."  And they didn't mean it as a compliment.

Their candidate in Burlington said "when did we become for immigrants?"

Their candidate in Peterborough said the PCs "will be focusing on our own people getting jobs."

And their candidate in Carlton Mississippi Mills has said he is "willing to fight for my culture."

Tim Hudak knew the truth.  He chose to lie, repeatedly.  And he and his team engaged in the worst kind of politics of envy, fear, resentment and division.

And now he's trying to re-write history.
