McGuinty Says The Progress York Region Has Made - And Must Continue
Making - Is At Stake In This Election
MARKHAM, ON, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - Premier Dalton McGuinty and Liberal Revenue
Minister Michael Chan urged Ontarians to stand up for the public services our
families depend upon.
"This campaign is a watershed - a clear choice between our vision of the
future, or the same, old Conservative approach, a choice between strengthening
public services, or putting them at risk," McGuinty said.
"Michael - and all Ontario Liberals - are committed to leading that fight
on behalf of hard-working families, here in Markham and right across Ontario.
But we need your support to help keep Ontario moving forward."
McGuinty spoke to an enthusiastic crowd gathered for the launch of
Liberal Revenue Minister Michael Chan's re-election campaign in the riding of
Chan told supporters that Premier McGuinty is the best leader to move
Ontario forward - and that he and his fellow Ontario Liberals will continue
building opportunity for Ontario families through strong public services we
all rely on.
"Ontario Liberals fight for publicly funded education, for publicly
funded, publicly delivered health care. We fight for a cleaner environment,
and a greener, more prosperous economy," said Chan.
"Together, we're moving Ontario forward. We've hired more than 700 new
teachers in York Region, we've got a new family health team, and improved
public transportation. All of those things are at risk if the Conservatives
are allowed to take Ontario backwards."
"The Conservatives want to take half a billion dollars from our publicly
funded schools, just when they're back on their feet, and divert it to
private, religious schools," said McGuinty. "That's why this election is a
choice between moving forward with the Ontario Liberals - or going backwards
under the Conservatives."
Today's party gathering in Markham capped off a day that began at Charles
H. Hulse Public School in Ottawa, where McGuinty laid out his plan to build
opportunity for Ontario students and help them succeed by giving even more
students access to tutoring and online homework help.
