Walking The Walk On Issues That Matter To Women Most

Deb Matthews Highlights Ontario Liberal Record On What Women Want

TORONTO, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Minister of Health and Long-Term Care Deb Matthews took time today to speak about what women want most from the next Ontario government.

"In this election we do have a choice, but it's not between stilettos and dress shoes or women versus men — this election isn't about style, it's about substance," said Matthews. "Ontario Liberal women walk the walk, and they're bringing real female leadership to Ontario families."

In Premier Dalton McGuinty's cabinet, women are responsible for almost 80 per cent of the budget. Their perspective and leadership are delivering positive results like full-day kindergarten, increased breast-cancer screenings for women at risk, and the Ontario Child Benefit — all of which Andrea Horwath voted against.

"We want to emphasize that in this election, there is a lot at stake," said Matthews. "It's about choosing a vision for the future of our province. These are serious times, calling for a serious plan."

Matthews was joined by breast cancer survivors and a family whose daughter began full-day kindergarten this year.

"It's because of the women in our caucus that we have achieved great things on the issues that matter to women most — stronger education, good jobs, better health care and more help for families struggling to get ahead," said Matthews. "Women in the Ontario Liberal Party are playing a big part in creating a brighter future for our children and grandchildren. That's walking the walk."

The Hudak PCs have $14 billion in unfunded giveaways and tax cuts that would mean deep cuts to hospitals and schools. The Horwath NDP would introduce a crushing $9 billion in job-killing taxes.  Both would take Ontario off track at the worst time.
