VIDEO: Hudak Coy On Possible 2013 Election
"Who the hell knows?"
That was a laughing Tim Hudak's answer on if there will be an election next year. The Progressive Conservative leader sat down with Newstalk 1010 to talk about what was and what could be in 2013.
When asked multiple times, Hudak wouldn't say if he was ready to trigger an election in this minority government despite putting himself in campaign mode recently. He and his party have been releasing a list of ideas he would implement if he were premier such as looking into selling off the LCBO, eliminating the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) and giving workers a choice to be part of a union.
Hudak underlines he won't make any prediction about a 2013 election, given he's not even sure when the Liberals will bring back the legislature after they've chose a new leader.
When it comes to something the province is experiencing right now - teacher labour strife because of Bill 115 - Hudak says he doesn't regret supporting Bill 115 for a second. He repeated calls for an across-the-board wage freeze for the public sector.
Moving forward, Hudak says he plans on focusing on huge issues next year such as jobs and the economy.
