SAULT STE MARIE – Politics – Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak congratulated Rod Fremlin on his nomination as the Ontario PC candidate for Sault Ste. Marie. Hudak commended his dedication to making northern Ontario a more attractive place for business investment and job creation.
“Rod understands the priorities for a brighter future and the urgent need to create the private sector jobs that will lead Ontario back to prosperity,” said Hudak. “While the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals continue to deepen Ontario’s economic crisis, the Ontario PC Party has a plan to create new jobs and rein in government spending.”
Rod Fremlin retired in December 2011 after 28 years with Sault Ste. Marie Fire Services and is currently a building contractor. Born and raised in the Echo Bay region, Fremlin is married to Cynthia and has three children. He is also a member of the Matthews Memorial Hospital Association board of directors.
“Kathleen Wynne doesn’t care about northern jobs. She’s more interested in saving Liberal jobs in the south than ours,” said Fremlin. “The NDP aren’t any better. They supported the Liberals over us so they could benefit. But they are unrealistic, unaffordable and unprepared. Ontario needs new leadership and a new direction to make the necessary decisions to get our economy back on track.”
Fremlin noted Tim Hudak’s Million Jobs Plan will:
- Produce more jobs and increase take-home pay through lower taxes and less debt
- Ensure affordable energy that will create jobs, not eliminate them.
- Train more skilled workers to meet the demand in trades, and help young people find good jobs.
- Increase trade with our neighbours.
- End the bureaucratic runaround that inhibits job creation.
