Halftime will be awkward after Hudak slams South Korean investment
NORTH YORK, ON, June 22 /CNW/ - In a crass display of political cynicism, Conservative Leader Tim Hudak will pose for the cameras while watching a soccer game with the Korean Canadian Cultural Association. Meanwhile, Hudak has repeatedly slammed South Korean based Samsung and pledged to turn away 16,000 Ontario jobs.
After Samsung, one of South Korea's industrial leaders, announced a $7-billion investment in Ontario including four new manufacturing plants for clean energy technology, Hudak said he would have turned the investment down sending 16,000 Ontario jobs elsewhere.
Calling the Ontario clean energy jobs a "rip off", a "huge mistake", and "corporate welfare", Hudak complained that Ontario should not be partnering to create jobs with a "foreign multi-national" like Samsung, wanting to invest in Ontario.
For putting political photo-ops ahead of jobs for Ontario families, Hudak's Conservatives deserve a red card.
