The duty of the Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition is to oppose. You can look it up in his job title.
By that measure, Tim Hudak is pretty good at his job. The Tory leader opposes everything under the sun — and anything shady.
It’s a thankless job — and not one he sought: Hudak ran to be premier in the last election, not the runner-up dispensing perpetual put-downs.

American president Harry S. Truman once observed that “the C students run the world.” If Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak gets his way, they won’t even obtain a post-secondary education — at least one funded by government loans.
In his most preposterous policy position yet, Hudak says university and college students should receive loans only if they reach a certain — undefined — level of academic success.

There is no reason for Ontario to emasculate its workforce to compete with the dregs of the U.S. economy.
