NIAGARA FALLS – Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak issued a statement on the results of the Ontario By-Elections.
“This evening’s results prove that the people of this province want change. They sent the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals a clear message. They want leadership that will take decisive action, implement a plan to balance the budget and create jobs.
“The majority of voters chose an Ontario PC plan to bring jobs and opportunity back to our province. My Million Jobs Plan will create more jobs with better take-home pay by making energy affordable, lowering taxes, and reducing government debt.
“Tonight, I am pleased to congratulate Gila Martow on her election victory in Thornhill. I look forward to welcoming Gila to the Ontario PC caucus, and to working closely with our newest MPP to bring jobs and opportunity to Thornhill.
“I want to thank Bart Maves and his team of dedicated volunteers. Bart has represented Niagara for 11 years and has a proven track record of creating jobs. He ran a great campaign and I know he will continue to fight for his community.
“Tonight, hardworking Ontario families should be worried about the willingness of the Liberals and NDP to side with and protect special interest unions rather than Ontario families. Those special interest groups make no distinction between the high tax, high-spending policies the Liberals have used to drive jobs away, and the high tax, high-spending approach the NDP would take to drive away even more job.”
“Once again, the Ontario PC Party received the most votes of any party. Ontario will have two choices in the next election: a Liberal/NDP coalition that will raise taxes, increase spending and debt, or an Ontario PC Party with a Million Jobs Plan that will create jobs and opportunities for families across our province. Our message remains the same. We will stand up for more jobs and a better Ontario”.
