THUNDER BAY – News – “As a long serving member of the business community, I have experienced what it takes to grow a business. A Tim Hudak government will provide North Western Ontario small business owners with the support they need to grow and provide more jobs in the region,” stated Anthony LeBlanc the Progressive Conservative Candidate in Thunder Bay Superior North.
LeBlanc points to his business experience including his work with Research In Motion (RIM), the makers of the BlackBerry, to become Vice President Global Sales, as well as his efforts forming Ice Edge Holdings, a partnership dedicated to bringing hockey to Canadian markets. LeBlanc’s comments come as PC Leader Tim Hudak introduced the Small Business Bill of Rights, the Ontario PC Party’s commitment to restoring Ontario small businesses as the engine of economic growth and job creation. “While Dalton McGuinty’s tax hikes, red tape and expensive energy experiments have crippled their ability to grow and create jobs, a Tim Hudak government will be the best partner small business ever had,” echoed LeBlanc.
The PCs state, “Unlike Dalton McGuinty, whose mandatory smart meters place an unfair burden on small business, a Tim Hudak government will help small businesses grow and create jobs by reducing the regulatory burden by a minimum of 30 percent, letting owners decide if time-of-use pricing is right for their business, and establishing fast, efficient and customer-friendly service in their dealings with government. These are just three of the commitments contained in the Ontario PC Small Business Bill of Rights”.
“On October 6th, Ontario’s small business owners will have a clear choice,” stated Hudak. “They can choose four more years of more tax hikes, more red tape, and more expensive energy experiments under the McGuinty Liberals, or they can choose change with a Tim Hudak government, which will respect Ontario’s small business owners as the engine of Ontario’s economy and job creation”.
