Ontario Liberal Plan To Create Jobs And Build A Bright Future Is Working

Hudak PCs' Reckless Chainless Chain Gang Scheme Not The Way Forward

BARRIE, ON, Sept. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - The Ontario Liberal Plan is working and will create even more jobs and opportunity for Ontario families Premier Dalton McGuinty said today.

"What we are building, together, is nothing short of amazing. These are perilous times in the global economy, yet we continue to make progress," McGuinty said. "Our plan is working. Ontario has created almost 300,000 full-time jobs since the global recession — more full-time jobs this year than the rest of Canada combined."

In the next chapter of the Ontario Liberal Plan, we're building a new, clean-energy economy and creating tens of thousands of additional jobs in infrastructure, transportation, hospitals, schools and the private sector.

For much of the campaign, the Hudak PCs have focused on their reckless chainless chain gang scheme that they have yet to explain or justify.

"This chainless chain gang scheme is typical of Tim Hudak — it's risky, doesn't move our province forward and doesn't create a single job," McGuinty said. "Their plan also includes $14 billion in unfunded giveaways and tax cuts that would mean deep cuts to hospitals and schools taking Ontario off track in perilous economic times."

The Premier made his comments at an enthusiastic rally in Barrie today, while visiting the campaign office of Karl Walsh, the Liberal candidate in Barrie and former President of the Ontario Provincial Police Association.

"The Ontario Liberals have been stalwart supporters of public safety, and that's why I'm proud to stand with Dalton McGuinty," said Walsh, a 16-year veteran of the Ontario Provincial Police. "The Hudak chainless chain gang policy is the most ridiculous public safety proposal I've ever heard."

Ontario Liberals continue to focus on the centrepiece of their plan to build a high-skills economy with good jobs and the best health care: education. The Ontario Liberal Plan will protect the gains our province has made since 2003, keep postsecondary school affordable, improve health care and make it easier for seniors' to stay in their own homes and invest in jobs of the future.

"Now is not the time for experimentation or political expedience. We need strong, steady leadership. Only the Ontario Liberals have a plan to move us forward, together," McGuinty said.
