A vote for Hudak is a vote for higher property taxes
"The municipalities are disappointed because they've been given free
money, essentially, from the provincial government," he said, noting he
thinks it's unlikely Mr. McGuinty's full uploading commitment can be
honoured. "Now reality has hit, and they're not very happy."

TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2011 /CNW/ -
Tim Hudak's decision to rip up the Province's agreement with
municipalities to take back provincial costs will result in $500
million in higher property taxes.
Increases in property taxes hit seniors and small business hardest.
Hudak's property tax increases, and his failure to even speak with the
PC MPP who has failed to pay his taxes, make a mockery of Hudak's tax
"A vote for Tim Hudak is a vote for higher property taxes. It's clear
that Hudak's playing a shell game to cover the $14 billion hole in his
platform, and leaves property taxpayers and businesses on the hook.
Tim Hudak wants to take us backwards."
- Brad Duguid, MPP, Scarborough-Centre
On top of cancelling the uploading agreement, Hudak will also download
the cost of dealing with hazardous goods by scrapping eco-fees, and he
will force municipalities that own local hydro distribution companies
to pick up the tab for the stranded hydro debt that the PCs created in
As part of the last government, Tim Hudak downloaded over $3 billion in
costs onto municipalities
In contrast, by the time uploading is fully complete, Ontario Liberals
will have uploaded over $2.5 billion in annual costs from
