Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak’s pledge to demolish 100,000 public sector jobs has stirred a hornet’s nest of opinion in the Ontario election race.
It appears that the main issue in this campaign is firming up to be job creation, with all parties proposing various policy options (with varying credibility).
Hudak is the only candidate whose starting point would be to cut jobs. It’s a plan that’s even more extreme than the cuts made by former premier Mike Harris in the 1990s.
