This leadership convention marks a potential sea change for Ontario, where priorities can be shifted to promoting quality public services, taking action on tax fairness and investing in communities with a real job strategy.
Toronto (18 Jan. 2013) — The message Ontarians will be sending to Ontario Liberal Party delegates, as they enter Maple Leaf Gardens on January 26, is that the new Liberal leader — and provincial premier — must govern in the best interest of ALL citizens.
Community and union members concerned about the direction McGuinty's Liberals have been taking the province will greet delegates at a rallyon January 26 from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto to remind them of the priorities of all Ontarians.
Austerity measures, cutbacks and reduced services have not served the provincial economy or communities well. Income inequality continues to rise and tax fairness is ignored by the ruling Liberals. This leadership convention marks a potential sea change for Ontario, where priorities can be shifted to promoting quality public services, taking action on tax fairness and investing in communities with a real job strategy.
