Rookie Leader Tim Hudak Not Worth The Risk

TORONTO, May 19 /CNW/ - Today, rookie PC leader Tim Hudak revealed yet another reckless policy.

After spending most of the last two weeks telling Ontarians that he would gut the clean energy industry in Ontario and cause thousands of layoffs across the province, Hudak has now offered a plan that has no numbers backing it up, and will cost Ontario families more in the long run.

When asked today, Hudak wouldn't say how he would pay for this reckless policy.

That's because there are only two ways to pay for it, and Hudak doesn't want to talk about either one:

  • Do what the PCs always do, and cut funding to schools and hospitals to pay for their rookie mistakes, or
  • Run up a multi-billion dollar hydro debt, and then ask Ontarians to pay for it.

The most disturbing part of today's announcement is that we've seen it before. In 2002, PC Premier Ernie Eves sat down at an Ontario family's kitchen table and promised to save hydro consumers money. Then he proceeded to add over $1 billion in hydro debt and shatter investor confidence in Ontario, costing lost investment dollars and lost jobs.

Today's announcement was yet another reckless policy that Ontario families will end up paying for - either through cuts to healthcare and education, or on their bills down the road.

Ontario is just getting out of the hole that the PCs dug the last time they were in office. We can't let them dig another hole with their reckless and costly promises.
