DURHAM, ONT. – Only the PC Party will create 120,000 new jobs by making Ontario the lowest tax jurisdiction in North America for job creation, said Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak today, as he was joined by Durham Candidate Mike Patrick.
“High taxes are driving jobs out of Ontario,” said Hudak during a visit to a Durham-area manufacturing company. “High taxes mean more jobs they won’t create or keep. That’s why our Million Jobs Plan will replace corporate welfare with fair and lower taxes to create jobs and get Ontario working better.”
Hudak promised to end what he called “Crony Capitalism” and “Corporate Welfare”.
The PC leader says that “It is hard to take the NDP seriously, I would take them serious if they had a serious plan”.
Hudak said that the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals play favorites and hand out hundreds of millions of dollars to the biggest companies just because they have the best Liberal lobbyist. “My message to employers is clear,” Hudak said. “I am going to take Ontario out of the crony capitalism business.”
Our Million Jobs Plan will create 120,000 jobs over the next eight years by reducing the tax burden on employers by 30 per cent – making them the lowest in North America.
“I’m for more businesses, paying less tax and hiring more workers,” said Hudak. “My opponents are for fewer businesses, paying more tax, which means hiring fewer workers,” said Hudak. “More businesses starting and growing here in Ontario means more jobs. It’s that simple.”
