Crack Must Answer for Made-In-Ontario Debt And Jobs Crisis

December 4, 2012

VANKLEEK HILL – “Liberal MPP Grant Crack must answer for nine years of reckless overspending by the Liberal government which has created a made-in-Ontario jobs and debt crisis” – Ontario PC MPP Jim McDonell said today during a media availability at Mike Dean’s Super Food Store.

MPP McDonell commented: “In the midst of a jobs and debt crisis, the Liberals decided to abandon Ontario, shutting down parliament to escape another scandal. With the doors shut, they’ve put a government that wasn’t doing its job on autopilot, leaving overspending to continue unchecked and the debt to accumulate.”

On behalf of 600,000 Ontarians in search of work, Tim Hudak and the PC Caucus have repeatedly called on Dalton McGuinty and the Ontario Liberals to change course and to recall the Legislature, so MPPs can get back to work.

MPP Jim McDonell is eager to return to work in Toronto: “The Ontario PCs want to get on with the job, of helping to create jobs”.

The Ontario PCs have launched a petition pressuring the McGuinty Liberals to get back to work. It can be found at

“I encourage all Glengarry-Prescott-Russell residents – including Grant Crack – to add their names to our petition and tell the Ontario Liberals to reopen the Legislature” – said MPP McDonell.

Unlike the Liberals hiding from scandal and responsibility, Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Caucus want to get to work. That’s why they brought forward Paths to Prosperity: An Agenda for Growth – a discussion paper which proposes 15 bold, new ideas to create jobs.

McDonell concluded: “The path to jobs and economic prosperity runs through Glengarry-Prescott-Russell but it’s going to take urgent action to help residents find good-paying jobs.”

“It’s also going to take a Legislature that’s hard at work.”
