Kathleen Wynne Ready for an Election

For immediate release
May 2, 2014
Premier Kathleen Wynne will take her plan to build opportunity and security to the people of Ontario.
The Ontario people will have a clear choice between the Liberal’s balanced approach that will create jobs and nurture our economic recovery and the opposition parties, who would put that recovery in jeopardy with reckless schemes and irresponsible choices.
Only Ontario Liberals have:
- A real plan to help create more good, well-paying jobs in Ontario – and to help young people find that all-important first job.
- An achievable plan to invest in infrastructure and transit so our province becomes an even better place to live, work and raise a family, and
- A bold plan to help Ontarians save for their golden years through an Ontario Retirement Pension Plan
Ontarians will choose between Premier Wynne’s plan for jobs and growth and Tim Hudak’s radical cuts.
“I believe there is only one good reason to get into politics – you do it to help people. And you do that by making government a force for good in people’s lives. Liberals are committed to helping the people of Ontario move forward and we believe our province’s best days lie straight ahead.”
— Ontario Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne
- Ontario contributes $11 billion more than it gets back from Ottawa, an important fiscal gap that needs to be addressed.
- The realistic, practical Ontario Liberal plan includes more than $11 billion for elementary and secondary education infrastructure and $11.4 billion in major hospital expansion and redevelopment projects
- Ontario Liberals would also invest $295 million over two years for the highly successful Ontario Youth Jobs Strategy, which gives young people the opportunity to gain a foothold in the job market. The strategy has already helped over 10,000 young people get work experience and find job
- Ontario Liberals would introduce the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan which would provide an annual lifetime benefit of about $25,000 — roughly doubling the retirement benefit an Ontario retiree would receive under the CPP alone, and would support 3 million Ontarians.
