Whether it’s the Liberal, Progressive Conservative or NDP leader, each one would answer yes to the question, ”Do you think you’d make a good premier?”
While campaigning in Toronto, Premier Kathleen Wynne said voters face a ”stark” choice June 12 – the Liberals, who want to invest in Ontario or the Tories, who want to cut 100,000 public sector jobs.
She believes the PC plans starts with ”cutting and tearing down much of what has been built.”
Wynne also says she finds it interesting that the N-D-P’s campaign platform contains many things that were in the Liberal budget that New Democrats refused to support — triggering this election.
Up in Ottawa, Andrea Horwath says she’s not worried about some NDP supporters voting Liberal just to keep the PCs from winning.
She thinks people know better than that, saying it would be rewarding the Liberals for ”bad behaviour.”
Plus Horwath doesn’t see the Tories plans to cut public sector jobs gaining enough traction to warrant strategic voting.
Meanwhile, PC Leader Tim Hudak took aim at the Liberals when he spoke to London’s chamber of commerce.
He said grants and subsidies to big business are ”economically disastrous and morally wrong.”
Hudak added the best way to spur economic growth is by lowering corporate taxes.
