Premier Kathleen Wynne was at Brampton's MDA robotics factory (MacDonald, Dettwilier and Associates Ltd.) to talk about her clear plan to create more well-paying jobs in Ontario.
The plan includes investments in people's education, skills and training and a $2.5 billion Jobs and Prosperity Fund to partner with key industries and bring good jobs to the province over the next ten years.
In 2006, the Liberal government partnered with the Brampton-based MDA to jointly fund a collaborative research and development partnership between MDA, the University of Toronto, and Queen's University in Kingston.
By choosing not to support the Budget, the Hudak PCs and Andrea Horwath’s NDP are providing voters with a clear choice. Voters will choose between Kathleen Wynne’s clear jobs plan or the reckless Hudak PCs who would take Ontario down a path to a low wage, low growth economy. The NDP schemes that would threaten Ontario's recovery and take our province along a path toward a low-wage economy.
"In a fiercely competitive world, we cannot be idle. We have to be willing to compete. We need to be aggressive and creative in striking partnerships. If we don't invest in smart partnerships and instead were to cut the way Tim Hudak suggests, jobs would leave the province. We simply cannot expect to keep Ontario competitive but then pretend we’re not in a competition"
