Tory ready to lead Ontario

    PC Leader says voters deserve a Premier they can trust

    TORONTO, Sept. 3 /CNW/ - Ontario PC Leader John Tory officially opened
his Don Valley West campaign office today, and announced that his party is
ready to hit the campaign trail. As the leader of the first party with a full
slate of 107 candidates, Tory said that he and his party will work hard to
earn the support of Ontario voters.
    "We have a plan that addresses the needs and concerns of Ontarians from
all walks of life," Tory said. "I will only make promises I can afford and
keep. Our government will spend taxpayers' dollars wisely, and restore
accountability, transparency and integrity to politics."

      -  Ensuring safer communities by creating more jobs, keeping more
         dangerous offenders behind bars, and increasing the number of
         police on the street;
      -  $2.44 billion in additional funding for Ontario's public school

      -  Support for those in need, with a firm plan to support farmers,
         those less fortunate and families of autistic children;

         supply and other natural resources; and
      -  Repealing the regressive 'health tax', a tax Ontarians were never
         supposed to pay
