Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak threw a juicy bone to Ontario voters Tuesday, promising to phase in a 10 per cent cut to personal income taxes after a Tory government balances the budget in 2016.
It’s the latest pledge in what he’s called a plan to help create a million jobs over eight years, which includes slashing corporate taxes by 30 per cent, cutting 100,000 public sector jobs, slowing the growth of energy rates and killing Ontario’s $12.5-billion deficit a year ahead of what the incumbent Liberals have promised.
More than half of those million jobs would be created anyway if the province maintained the status quo of the last decade, the Tories acknowledged. But Hudak said he can create half a million more with his proposed reforms.
