Mississauga-Brampton South -- When it comes to the future of Mississauga-Brampton South, success depends upon the strength of our province's economy. It is about providing opportunities for the businesses, families, students and hardworking people who call this part of Ontario home.
The Ontario PC Party recently tabled the Million Jobs Act - an ambitious plan that will put Ontario back on the right track.
“This economic plan represents opportunity and potential for people across the province, including those right here in Mississauga and Brampton," said Amarjeet Gill, Ontario PC MPP candidate for Mississauga-Brampton South. "It's a plan that will put people back to work and help our young people reach their full potential."
Ontario’s manufacturing sector lost another 3,000 jobs in February and our unemployment rate is 7.5% compared to the national average of 7%. This is now the 86th consecutive month Ontario’s unemployment rate has been higher than the national average.
"These numbers highlight an issue that needs a real solution. If passed, the Million Jobs Act will immediately begin its task of creating jobs," said Gill. "It is more critical than ever before to take action. Ontarians simply cannot wait any longer on failed promises of change."
Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak's proposed Million Jobs Act will:
Produce more jobs and increase take-home pay through lower taxes and less debt;
Ensure affordable energy that will create jobs, not eliminate them;
Train more skilled workers to meet the demand in trades, and help young people find good jobs;
Increase trade with our neighbours, and;
End the bureaucratic runaround that inhibits job creation.
Ontario faces higher deficits and will struggle to cover the cost of essential public services if action is not taken immediately.
“There are more than one million hardworking Ontarians out of work," said Gill. "We are putting forth structured plans that will make Ontario stronger and provide the opportunities the constituents of Mississauga and Brampton deserve."
It's time for Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals to put the priorities of Ontarians first for once.
