Premier McGuinty Visits MacDonald Dettwiler In Brampton
BRAMPTON, ON, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Ontario Liberals will move quickly
to accelerate job creation in the face of perilous economic times,
Premier Dalton McGuinty told a crowd here today.
"Our plan is working. Ontario's economy has created almost 300,000
full-time jobs since the global recession — more full-time jobs this
year than the rest of Canada combined," said McGuinty. "In the coming
days, we'll be talking about our plan to ensure that Ontario families
have what they need to respond to future economic challenges."
The Premier made his comments during a tour of Brampton's MacDonald,
Dettwiler and Associates, Ltd., which Ontario has supported. The
company builds advanced communications and space technology as well as
robotic arms used for performing surgery. The Brampton facility
designed and built the celebrated Canadarms 1 and 2, used by NASA and
the International Space Station.
Ontario Liberals stood by hundreds of thousands of families in the last
recession to protect jobs, and now Ontario is creating hundreds of
thousands of new jobs.
"With the uncertainty and turmoil in the global economy and the renewed
threat of recession, Ontario Liberals will move forward with specific
measures to create jobs, building on the successful programs that
helped Ontario families through the last recession," McGuinty said.
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
us off track at the worst time.
"Now is not the time for experimentation or political expedience. Only
Ontario Liberals have a plan for moving Ontario forward, together,"
