Tim Hudak: Then and Now

QUEEN'S PARK, June 28, 2011 /CNW/ - The last time the PCs were in office, they lied about a giant hole in their budget, repeatedly claiming that the books were balanced. After the Auditor General was called in and exposed a $5.6 billion deficit, Ontario Liberals changed the law to ensure that the auditor looked at the books before elections, and a political party couldn't run a campaign on a lie.

One of the many PCs to lie about the deficit then was Tim Hudak.

Tim Hudak then:

  • "…the provincial budget has been balanced for the past four years, with a fifth to come" (Dunnville Chronicle, October 1, 2003).

The truth then:

  • "Not to put too fine a point on it, but we now have proof that over the last seven months the outgoing Conservative government lied about the state of the province's finances. Specifically, the Tories said repeatedly that the budget for this fiscal year was balanced, and it demonstrably was not" (Toronto Star, October 30, 2003).

Tim Hudak now:

  • "Our plan…is fully costed" (Speech to Canadian Club of Ottawa, June 8, 2011).

The truth now:

  • There's a $14 billion hole in Hudak's scheme that will result in cuts to healthcare and education.

He was lying then. Why should anyone believe him now?

The truth is that Tim Hudak will say anything to get into power, because he's just in it for himself.
