"Forward.Together" Endorsed By Educators, Doctors, Business Leaders,
TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2011 /CNW/ - A broad cross-section of Ontarians are
lining up behind the Ontario Liberal platform — "Forward. Together" —
because they want the province to stay on track in health care,
education, the environment and the new economy.
"These are serious times and what Ontario needs is a serious plan. We're
looking forward to sharing our plan for creating good jobs in the new
economy," said Premier Dalton McGuinty.
Some of those supporting the Ontario Liberal platform include:
Warren Jestin, Chief Economist at Scotiabank, who said it's a
"well-articulated budget plan ... that recognizes the risks to the
global economic outlook."
Andrew Wilkes, Co-Chair, National Angel Capital Organization, who said:
"it is a great time to grow businesses in Ontario and create long-term
jobs for the generations to come."
Sheldon Levy, President of Ryerson University, who said measures to help
students are "the most progressive change in tuition policy I have seen
in 40 years."
Mike Garland, CEO of Pattern Energy Group, who said: "Overall, we and
our partners are expected to invest over $1 billion in Ontario every
year for the next several years provided the permitting and energy
policies allow us to progress as planned."
Dr. Avis Glaze, of Edu-quest International Inc. and former Chief Student
Achievement Officer of Ontario who said: "public education in Ontario
has become the envy of the world."
Janet Kasperski , Chief Executive Officer of the Ontario College of
Family Physicians, who said plans to bring back house calls is " good
news for our frail, elderly patients."
The NDP are making three times as many promises as the Ontario Liberal
platform, and the PCs are making an incredible five times as many — and
neither of them had their platform independently validated.
Already, over 40 different Ontario leaders have endorsed the Ontario
Liberal platform because it provides the strong, steady leadership the
province needs to continue on track and moving forward.
