Hudak Offers No Alternative on Jobs

Deep Cuts Would Take Ontario Off Track

TORONTO, Sept. 18, 2011 /CNW/ - Today, Tim Hudak released his "5 point plan" for job creation, but forgot to tell you one thing. Ontario Liberals are already doing it all.

Treat energy policy as economic policy - not as a social program.

  • Our focus on the clean energy sector will result in 50,000 new jobs in Ontario - which he'll kill.
  • We've made the necessary investments that will keep the lights on - which is the first thing that businesses' look for.
  • Meanwhile, Hudak's plan to stop collecting the Debt Retirement Charge before the debt is paid off proves that he doesn't understand basic economic policy. Someone will have to pay that charge, and under his plan, it will be business, taxpayers, and municipalities.

Train 200,000 more skilled workers by expanding the apprenticeship system.

  • We've doubled the number of apprentices from 60,000 to 120,000
  • This won't happen under Hudak - it's one of the uncosted promises that make up the $14 billion hole in his platform.

Reduce taxes on job creators.

  • We're already cutting the corporate tax rate to 10%, which is something that the Hudak PCs voted against.
  • And we've cut the small business tax rate from 5.5% to 4.5% - another thing that the Hudak PCs voted against - and we're going to reduce it further - to 4%. Hudak doesn't match the small business tax cut in his platform.

Eliminate job-killing red tape.

  • Introducing the HST was the single biggest reduction in red tape in 20 years - and the Hudak PCs voted against.
  • Eliminated 80,000 regulations

Lowering taxes on families so they have the confidence to spend again.

  • As part of a comprehensive tax reform package, we reduced income taxes on the average family by $355 (Hudak PCs voted against)
  • Covering 5 new vaccines for kids will save families up to $1400
  • Full-Day Kindergarten saves a family $6,500/year in child care costs (Hudak PCs voted against)
  • The Ontario Clean Energy Benefit takes 10% off hydro bills (Hudak PCs voted against)
  • We're going to take 30% off undergraduate tuition (Hudak PCs are opposed)
