MPP Hudak’s 2015 budget proposal focuses on job creation

Niagara West – Glanbrook – When MPP Tim Hudak wrote his 2015 budget proposal to the provincial government he relied heavily on the input form a recent business survey he conducted in his riding of Niagara West – Glanbrook.

“We heard, across the board, that high taxes, energy costs and the costs that will come from the proposed Ontario Retirement Pension Plan are the biggest burdens for local employers,” said Hudak. “I took those responses from local businesses and used them as the basis for my submission for the 2015 budget.”

The submission highlights my purpose, shared by local job creators, to get more people on payroll so they can provide for their families, said Hudak, adding the added benefit of more people working is more taxpayers and more dollars for transportation and health care.

Hudak’s budget proposal calls on the government to:

Lower Ontario’s debt

  • Reduce spending
  • Balance the budget

Lower cost of doing business in Ontario

  • Reduce energy costs, scrap the Green Energy Act
  • Walk away from the ORPP
  • Reduce taxes
  • Reduce regulatory burden

Focus on the right priorities with the money we do spend

  • Rebuild WLMH
  • Extend GO Rail to Niagara
  • Build the Mid-Pen Corridor

 “To get the best ideas on how to get our region and Ontario working again, I just asked the job creators for their best advice,” said Hudak. “This budget proposal captured that advice and our spirit of optimism. This advice to Finance Minister Sousa and Premier Wynne, from my home and our heart, will help all of us build a better Ontario, Niagara and Hamilton.”
