WATCH: Hudak blasts government on Chrysler

PC leader reacts to auto-makers decision to pull request for government funds

With the Liberals accusing Tim Hudak of making a potential $700 million in government funding for Chrysler a political hot potato, causing the automaker to pull its request for cash, the PC leader is turning the tables on the government.

After calling the announcement good news for taxpayers and the province, Hudak came out swinging.

He says the Liberal government is willing to give away suitcases full of money to corporations without any promise of long-term jobs in the province.

Hudak says Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals are pushovers.

He says even when the province funds manufacturers, they still pack up and leave after a few years.

    just so i understand this. Hudak calls this corporate welfare with our money on one hand but i always hear him trump up how we should lower corporate taxes to entice business on the other hand (our money!).

      @arthur Corporate Welfare - such as this handout would have been - is given only to specific industries, usually money losing and dying ones. Lower taxes are for all industries, including those that are expanding and creating jobs.

      I wonder if Chrysler is taking this political hot potato off the table to help the Liberals get re-elected. Then afterwards, they can come back for the money when there is no election imminent and less of a political issue.

      @Walter i respectfully disagree Walter but I'm no economist. it sounds to me if all levels of government agree to a handout with hard conditions. amount of jobs/length of commitment sounds to me more of a sure bet to help the people get jobs help our economy as oppose to here companies you might need it or not tax breaks and loopholes and hopefully you guys do well and create jobs. i understand if we don't want them some other jurisdiction is ready to take our jobs from us. no good!

      @arthur The aim is to lower taxes for corporations (to give them greater incentive to create jobs here instead of in Bangladesh), lower taxes for individuals (so that we can each bring home a greater percentage of our hard-earned pay to benefit our families), and most importantly reduce spending on wasteful committees, a bloated public sector, endless union demands, welfare scammers, et cetera.

    Howdy Doody never met a microphone he couldn't mumble into and, now, only with Skeletor at his side.
    For the love of Pete, Time ... go back to Walmart and do something more to your ability, like stocking shelves again.
