Liberal Plan Delivers Electric Cars To Ontario

Strong Leadership Brings Jobs For Woodstock Families

WOODSTOCK, ON, Sept. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - Only the Ontario Liberal Plan for clean energy and manufacturing is bringing new auto industry jobs to Ontario.

"Ontario already builds more cars than any other place in North America. Now, as we move to a clean-energy economy, we're building the next big thing — electric cars — right here in Ontario," Premier Dalton McGuinty said.

Ontario Liberals opened the Toyota assembly plant in Woodstock in 2008 — the first new auto plant in Ontario in 20 years. Now, Toyota will build its RAV4 EV (electric vehicle) there — making Ontario the only place in North America to produce these electric cars.

Bringing electric vehicles and electric car charging stations to Ontario's roads is an important part of building a clean-energy economy. These new technologies will demand the high skills of Ontario's well-educated workforce.

"Our relentless focus on education means we're creating a high-skills, high-wage economy — making goods no one else can," McGuinty said. "Only the Ontario Liberals have a plan to build this economy and create these jobs — the other parties would take us off track."

The Hudak PCs are against the foreign investment that creates thousands of jobs for Ontario families. They also oppose any government investment in the auto sector — calling it "corporate welfare". And the $14 billion hole in their platform 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.

"A strong economy means we're able to invest in health care and education — improving the quality of life for all our families," McGuinty said. "Only the Ontario Liberals have a plan to keep moving forward, together."
