NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. – Tim Hudak was forced to defend his “Million Jobs Plan” for Ontario on Wednesday as a growing number of economists questioned the math behind the promise, which lies at the centre of the Progressive Conservative leader’s election platform.
Despite being hammered repeatedly on the issue, Hudak was adamant that the PC figures were right.
“I stand behind our numbers,” he said at a furnace-making facility in Niagara Falls, Ont. “I simply believe that permanent tax reductions on job creators, more affordable energy is going to create jobs.”
