Hudak Pens Letter To Wynne
Tim Hudak has reached out to the premier to outline six ways to tackle the deficit, as he tries to distance himself from the governing Liberals and the NDP.
But the Progressive Conservative leader underlines this letter isn't about getting a budget deal on issues important to his party.
Hudak says he wants to fill in what he calls a "leadership vacuum" at Queen's Park and doesn't seem very interested any budget consultations with Kathleen Wynne.
Wynne's minority Liberal budget is rumoured to be released in April, with the premier stressing she wants to keep dialogue open between both the Tories and the NDP. She'll need some opposition party support to get it passed to avoid an election.
In his note, Hudak claims the Liberals haven't started to tackle the province's deficit issues or job creation. It lists out private member's bills on a public sector wage freeze, limiting government spending and ending the Feed-In-Tarrif (FIT) energy program as some of the ideas a Tory government would put into place if elected.
