Horwath Releases Election Platform

The NDPs have released their party platform for the June 12 election.

The platform includes reductions in hydro, cutting ER wait times and increasing corporate tax rates.

Leader Andrea Horwath says she believes there are other incentives in the budget to keep big manufacturers in Ontario. “What we do know is that Heinz left for a jurisdiction that has job creator tax credits in it, this is something we need to take seriously. We know that there are other things that companies look at and we’re prepared to do things differently.”

Horwath is also making a commitment to bring the slots at raceway program back to Ontario.
