Conservatives and NDP play games because they have no plan
QUEEN'S PARK, Nov. 19 /CNW/ - The Conservatives and NDP are more interested in games than in debating the McGuinty government's tax change plans because they have no plan of their own, says Liberal MPP Yasir Naqvi (Ottawa Centre).
The opposition parties are playing childish games in their attempts to protest the McGuinty government's plan to create up to 590,000 new jobs and cut taxes for 93% of Ontario families. In this past week alone:
- Conservative Deputy Leader Christine Elliott (Whitby-Oshawa) tried to
cut off debate on the Animal Health Act;
- Conservative John O'Toole (Durham) tried to cut off debate on
legislation to regulate propane safety in the wake of the Sunrise
- Conservative John Yakabuski (Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke) tried to cut
off debate on legislation to remove barriers for skilled trades
workers to move to Ontario;
- Conservative Members opposed the introduction of legislation to help
seniors obtain drivers licenses;
- After just 26 minutes of work Wednesday morning, NDP Gilles Bisson
(Timmins James Bay) tried to end debate on the propane safety
legislation - again;
- Today the Conservatives and NDP tried all they could to delay the
debate on the tax reform package from even starting.
"We've been talking about these tax changes for the last eight months. We have a plan that will create up to 590,000 new jobs for Ontarians and cut taxes for 93% of Ontario families. The other guys have childish games, but they don't have a plan to create a single new job," said Naqvi.
