Should these sort of last day dirty tactics be allowed in this day and age?
834 Air Canada A319s Needed to Accommodate Hudak’s 100,000 Fired Workers
Young Workers will be first to go in Hudak’s mass layoffs
(Toronto) Tim Hudak’s campaign to fire 100,000 Ontarians just didn’t take off. Why else would the PCs hold a desperate, last-minute negative press conference in front of a grounded Air Canada jet?
It would take 834 Air Canada A319s to accommodate the 100,000 people he would immediately fire. And the cuts will have disproportionate impact on young people leaving college and university, and entering the workforce for the first time.
We did not print all of the attack; but surely this election; one of the nastiest of this century, is something that all in Ontario should consider as we watch our political system crumble under corruption and an utter lack of accountability and transparency?
It certainly contrasts a PC email received shortly thereafter:
We are not endorsing or advocating either party; but clearly the last day messages are very very different.
UPDATE 1:10 PM
The NDP sent out their message as well.
We’re almost half way through election day.
Polls close just eight hours from now.
This election is going to be close and every vote will count. And as the opinion polls last night showed us, New Democrats are in second place – and in the best position to stop Tim Hudak in every riding in Ontario.
