Failing Families Again: Tree Tantrum Only Hudak Accomplishment of Fall Session
QUEEN'S PARK, Dec. 9 /CNW/ - - Today marks day 529 rookie leader Tim Hudak has been at the helm of the Ontario PC Party. It also marks 529 days that he has failed to come forward with any serious plan. He's focused his energy on negative tantrums, substance-free stunts and opposing - just for the sake of opposing.
"This session, Tim put more time and effort into getting a bigger Christmas tree for himself than he did to propose positive plans to help Ontario move forward," said MPP Sandra Pupatello (Windsor West). "He's wandering from issue to issue with no plan, and no plan to get one. For Hudak, it's all about stunts over substance."
Tim Hudak has opposed any effort to create jobs, invest in health care, improve education, and give hard-working Ontarians a helping hand, including:
- 10% off hydro bills for families & small business: voted against providing relief for Ontario consumers
- Helping families with Full-Day Kindergarten: opposes our plan, which is already helping over 35,000 four- and five-year-olds get the best possible start to their education
- Clean-energy jobs for our communities: opposed initiatives that are already attracting thousands of new clean-energy and manufacturing jobs for Ontarians
- Banning public sector lobbyists: voted against banning the public sector from using taxpayer funds to hire lobbyists
- Consumer protection for ticket-buyers: voted against legislation that will protect consumers from unfair ticket resale price mark-ups and price gouging
- Attracting investment and jobs: voted against our Open for Business plan to attract investment and create jobs in Ontario
- Environmental sustainability: voted against water conservation and expanding job-creating clean water technology
- Improving government services: voted against legislation to provide better services to individuals and businesses
- Attracting the brightest students to our schools: opposed plans to attract the best and brightest students to Ontario
- Promoting Ontario in Canada: refused to stand up for Ontario and support Toronto as the site of a new National Securities Regulator
