CREATING ONTARIO FILM JOBS
Only Ontario Liberals Offer Strong, Steady Leadership In Perilous Economic Times
CAMBRIDGE – Premier Dalton McGuinty visited Cambridge today to speak about Ontario Liberal support for Ontario’s entertainment and creative industry.
“Ontario families faced many challenges during the last recession,” McGuinty said. “That’s why Ontario Liberals moved quickly to support jobs. A key part of our economy is Ontario’s film and television industry – Ontario Liberals have supported them by delivering $290 million in film and television-based tax credits. We will make this support permanent to keep our economy strong.”
Since 2003, under Ontario Liberals, the creative industry has grown by 39,000 jobs. Only Ontario Liberals are acting to create jobs and economic growth.
“There is a lot at stake in this election,” McGuinty said. “It’s about choosing a vision for the future of our province. Only Ontario Liberals will meet the global economic challenge by creating jobs and growth.”
The Hudak PCs have $14 billion in unfunded giveaways and tax cuts that would mean deep cuts to support for Ontario’s entertainment and creative industries – and a Hudak/Harper partnership would mean double the cuts, taking Ontario off track in perilous economic times. The Horwath NDP would take Ontario off track by introducing a crushing $9 billion in job-killing taxes.
“Only Ontario Liberals have the experience and the leadership to keep Ontario on track in perilous times in the global economy,” McGuinty said. “And only Ontario Liberals can be counted on to keep what we’ve built together intact – our thriving cultural sector, strong schools, hospitals and our services – while moving Ontario forward. Together.”Tags: Ontario Liberals, Premier Dalton McGuinty
