On top of that, the Wynne Liberal scheme does nothing to protect the environment – all it d...

The Wynne Liberals need to learn that facts still matter in Ontario. They continue to use inaccurate spin to distract from the fact their economic mismanagement has driven Ontario, once Canada’s economic engine, into have-not status. While the Wynne Liberals may be comfortable with Ontario being at the bottom of the pack, the Ontario PCs are not. Finance Minister Charles Sousa in Question Period: “We are number one in North...

"Under the Liberals, job creation and wages have stagnated. Middle-class families haven't had a raise since 2003. Kathleen Wynne has had four years to fix this and is only trying to do so now because of an election. “The Ontario PCs support a $15/hr minimum wage.
