A growing chorus of economists says Tim Hudak misread his own economic data and vastly inflated the number of jobs his “Million Jobs Plan” would create.
The Progressive Conservative Leader claims a series of economic measures – such as cutting corporate taxes and red tape – would create 507,488 jobs over eight years, citing reports the party commissioned from the Conference Board of Canada and U.S. economist Benjamin Zycher. Added to the jobs that would be created by the economy anyway, the PCs estimate they could create a million jobs over two electoral mandates.
